Tag Circle Journal

We are going to start this in April the plan is for you to do a tag with a saying on and then that will be the theme for they tags  hope everyone is happy with this so could you all let me know on here if you are joining so we know how many tags to send around although I will add a few extra just in case  Very Happy  x

Becky
Vonny
Mickie
Margaret
Jennie
Mickie

See I'm down already  Laughing  We also need a list of who posts to whom and what date, or am I jumping the gun Wink
vonny

that's fine Becky. When are we planning to send out the first book? Are we going for the 8th of the month as for the tags (this does stagger things a bit)
Beckyb

Yes we can do that Vonny so shall we say id we can all have our 1st page done and dent to they partner by the 8th April I haven't sorted that out yet Mickie can't do it until we know how many are doing it.  Laughing  Laughing  xx
Mickie

Had a feeling I was getting ahead of myself Laughing
vonny

thanks Becky -this gives us a timeline  Smile
Jennie

That sounds great! I am going to be away quite a bit but hopefully I shall be able to fit in around everyone. July might be a problem for me with being away on the boat though. Hope that is ok  Confused
Mickie

I don't think that will be a problem Jennie
vonny

think we can accommodate this Jennie  Very Happy
Beckyb

That is not a problem at all Jennie x
Jennie

Any size tag? or are we all doing the same size?
Beckyb

You can use what size tag Jennie I will be using size 8 and we are thinking of postage I had thought about mountboard one but they will end up heavy  Very Happy x
margaret rorie

I'm being a little bit dense but I have some questions!
Do we stamp the quote only on the first tag and decorate it?
Do we put the quote stamp in with the tags for folk to use or is the quote just on the first tag? Hope you understand my questions!!
vonny

my tag size will be dictated by the card I use as I don't have standard sized tags. I have used the quote on what will be the cover of the book and is therefore a bit thicker than the pages I will send out.
Mickie

Not sure how many of us are taking part but am guessing 6, so my envelope will contain one decorated tag setting the theme for my book and 5 blank tags (plus a few spares).  

Just like the circle books we have done in the past really but without the stamp
vonny

that was my understanding Mickie. the quote we each choose will be the inspiration for the rest of the pages -think this will make for some interesting challenges  Very Happy
Jennie

Thanks Vonny and Mickie - that was what I was envisioning. Have made a start on mine this afternoon - but head seems to be somewhere else ! Not having a great inspirational day  Sad

Do we have a deadline for posting yet ?
margaret rorie

Thanks for clarifying this - now will need to find a quote! We also need to know the order for sending the books.
vonny

I think Becky is just waiting to see if anyone else wants to sign up but is aiming for books to be sent to named person by 8th April, once she has decided on the order  Smile
Miriam

Hi ladies,

I would like to join in too if it's not too late.  When do we have to send the first page by?
Beckyb

Brilliant Miriam I shall put your name down .Over the weekend I will sort out partners and the if you can let your partner have the tag book by the 8th April. I have put a Quote on a tag and I have also done a tag with the theme of my quote although you don't have to do that.

Vonny
Mickie
Margaret
Miriam
Jennie
and Me
I will send a message to Sarah to see if she wants to join.
Mickie

Smashing Laughing
margaret rorie

Great - will need to get a move on!
vonny

I need to make a couple more blank pages but apart from that am ready and waiting  Very Happy
Jennie

I am going to be away from early Saturday morning until the following Monday 11 April. I have sort of started it and hope to have it finished before I go, but If no info as to who to post it to I'll have to post it when I get back here on the 11th. Hope that is ok.
Sarah

Hello all! I did think maybe I would try this, but I think it may be beyond me - I don't even have any quote stamps and I'm about to go to Italy 5-8th.  Think I may just have to pass on it but I look forward to seeing what you all create. And thanks for thinking of me Becky!
Beckyb

Sarah you could always use a poem as a quote or get something off the net if you like you can use any medium on tags whatever is easiest for you. Have a good time in Italy xx
vonny

perhaps we could delay the start date to help Jennie, and Sarah if she wants to join in? Perhaps the middle of the month 15th?
Miriam

A delay would help me too - in the middle of my assessment and incredibly stressed at the moment!
Mickie

I have no problem with 15th Laughing
margaret rorie

That's fine with me.
Beckyb

That is fine with me mine I will message Sarah again  so we will say the 15th looks as that is ok with everyone .
Beckyb

I have messaged Sarah again and she is going to give it a go which is brilliant

Vonny
Mickie
Margaret
Miriam
Jennie
Sarah  
Becky

Vonny sends to Mickie
Mickie sends to Margaret
Margaret sends to Miriam
Miriam sends to Jennie
Jennie sends to Sarah
Sarah sends to Becky
Becky sends to Vonny.
I think that is right and the start date is the 15th April

Thanks Becky.  Good to have Sarah back too.  Better get cracking on my tag then. Laughing
margaret rorie

Thanks for organising this Becky - looking forward to starting.
vonny

Beckyb

It's great to be doing a book again x
Mickie

Beckyb

Mine is in the post. Have fun x
Beckyb

Received your tag book this morning Sarah  a lovely tag and  quote x
vonny

yours arrived today Becky -lots of scope here. and thanks for the ATC  Very Happy
Jennie

Miriam your tag book arrived today - lovely quote !!!
Sarah

Jenny, yours has arrived safely too.  i was really quite excited when it arrived.  Thanks for persevering with me, Becky!
Jennie

I just want to check that my understanding is correct  Laughing

Do we make a tag using the original quote as our theme which may or may not include another quote. Is that right ?

Thank you  Embarassed
Beckyb

The idea Jennie is to do a tag along the theme of the quote I don't see any reason you can't add another one if you want. x
margaret rorie

Mickie - your lovely tag book was waiting for me when I got back yesterday.  Looking forward to getting started on this - lovely to be back doing a circle book again.
Mickie

Thanks Margaret  Laughing

Vonny I'm sorry not to have let you know sooner - I have your book - love the theme Cool
vonny

glad it arrived ok Mickie and that you like the theme  Very Happy
Miriam

Margaret - I haven't received your book yet - my post has been really slow recently. I will let you know when it arrives
Miriam

Margaret - you book has arrived... beautiful quote and tag Smile
margaret rorie

I'm so glad it arrived - it would have been terrible if the first tag got lost!
Beckyb

I think everyone's book has arrived which is good news now the fun starts x
Jennie

When are we posting this month? I am going to be away in the middle of the month. I've completed my tag for Miriam's book so will probably post it off to you at the end of this week Sarah. Hope that is ok.  Very Happy
Jennie

Meant to say it was great fun !!!!
Beckyb

Think we are aiming for the 15th of the month but that is fine Jennie.
Sarah

Hi Jennie, will look out for it.  Becky, I posted today too, but 2nd class so probbly won't arrive until late in the week.
Beckyb

vonny

Thanks Vonny, will look out for it.  Margaret, Vonny's book will be on its way to you as soon as the page dries.

I never think to allow for drying time Rolling Eyes
vonny

Sarah's book has arrived Becky.
Lovely quote Sarah  Smile
margaret rorie

Miriam - I've posted Mickie's tag book today so hope it arrives quickly.
Beckyb

I have received Sarah's book  x
Jennie

Thanks Miriam Ive just opened Margaret's book which came while I was away.
Mickie

Vonny I have Becky's book.  Sorry, should have told you earlier

Margaret hope you have received Vonny's book
margaret rorie

Mickie - I have received Vonny's book.  Sorry I should have said. Won't be doing the page until I get back from Orkney.
Jennie

I have just finished Margaret's page and will be posting to Sarah in the next couple of days. What did we decide about July - I am afraid I won't be able to do the next page until August. We get back around the 14th August so I'll do it straight away and get it off to Sarah but I may be a few days behind.

We are having a slightly longer holiday as our 40th Wedding Anniversary falls on 7th August and we want to be somewhere reasonably nice where we can get a nice meal. We are are usually in Kinlochbervie where there is only a very small shop! I hope this doesn't cause a problem for everyone.
Beckyb

Not sure how to move a post it was my fault I put it in general so everyone saw it I have done a new post in swaps  which we could start using. Would people mind if we didn't post in July  but post in August. xx
margaret rorie

Jennie - you could always stop off in Orkney - lots of nice places to eat there!  Wherever you end up I hope you have a lovely anniversary.
Jennie

It is the bit of sea and Cape Wrath that puts me off getting to Orkney Margaret. If the weather is good we've got a little more time this year so I might end up there yet. Will let you know if I do!
vonny

congratulations on the 40 years Jennie.  Very Happy
I am happy not to swap in July and do the next one in August.
Mickie I have sent mine to you today along with my ATCs -2 for the price of 1 which is great  Very Happy
Will go and post in the new thread and use that one from now on
Beckyb

Congratulations on 40 years Jennie  I have done 40 years but with 2 different people love the one I have now  Laughing xx
Miriam

40 years.... congratulations Jennie.

August is fine for me....
margaret rorie

Not sure if this is the right place but I have received Sarah's book today - thanks Mickie.
Beckyb

We have moved to the link in swaps Margaret I suppose I ought to delete this one x
Sarah

Can't find the new tag swap thread - sorry! Can someone help?
Mickie

Hi Sarah - sorry you are having trouble finding the new tag swap thread.  It is under Swaps and called Tag Circle Journal 2016.  Hope this helps
