Want these?


So first I'll offer these tags to anyone that wants them. I made them when I was still working....I think that I was going to attach them to some cookies that I made for my co-workers or something but I forgot about them. Anyways, if someone wants them they're yours. There are 14 of them and each one has a hemp cord. If I get more than one response I'll let Lilly pick one person later tonight. Be sure to include your email too!

Oh yes, unfortunately every place has "that kind of people" in it and us kind of people can't let their guard down. I used to live in Hawaii and the tourists walk around sometimes with this golden glow about them thinking paradise is paradise... and then they get their stuff stolen while they run to the stand for a shave ice, or hide their ring in their towel in the beach while they go for a swim, or leave their windows down while they go for a hike... so the car doesn't get too hot... it happens everywhere and unfortunately its not the material stuff being stolen as much as your feeling of violation that is more hurtful. I'm sorry to hear Dan got such a "welcome" to Vermont although I'm sure its a small bump in the road to a place that has a lovely destination for you all. Hugs!

ok, let's try this again! got the blue screen of death the first time!

even in the nicest of places, there are always the darkest of souls. sad truth, isn't it? and it is the most trusting souls that attract those kinds of people, I have found. in some cases their goodness threatens them; in others, it is seen as a vulnerability that can be manipulated or otherwise taken advantage of. Sad that we always have to be on guard, isn't it? I think, if we let it, it can wear us down emotionally. But if we just expect that there's a certain amount of it in society, kind of like rainy weather, decide that that is what insurance is for, and let it roll off our shoulders, and move on and focus on the positive in life, then we're coping the best that we can. But I don't think you can control that initial reaction when you first discover the theft. It's such a disappointment in humanity overall, isn't it?

Those are beautiful tags, by the way - and it's sweet of you to just offer them to someone -- but you should really offer to do a swap with someone for something you could use. What kind of papercraft or item could you use at the moment? Then you could look forward to getting something in the mail, too! :-)

I'm sorry, but I somehow missed whatever it is that the other 2 comments are about.

My greedy self has been thinking, "ME, I want those tags!!!." Then, I read the 2nd comment about a trade and you getting something back. Nice self took over immediately, "She is absolutely right! From what I can see of the tags, the design looks quite cool. See what kind of things people can come up with as a trade."

I really think that you SHOULD do a contest for "What will you give me for the tags?" Then choose which trade you like the most...sounds like a win-win situation don't you think?

Oh yea, just because I'm nosy...Who took advantage of somebody? My Dad still gives me a hard time for being naive, but I will always keep it rather than becoming "hard" like so many other people. Sometimes it is EXTREMELY hard to see the good in people, but I HAVE to believe that it IS there---you just might have to get some new glasses to see it!

Sorry....I told my hubby that I posted about his "experience" last night and he said he didn't want anybody to think that he's a fool! Let's just say that someone took something, from a thing that has four wheels and goes on the road, because "someone" forgot to lock something on that thing with the four wheels!

Oh.....and I don't want anything in return.....I've got enough stuff so I'd be more than happy to get them outta here.....had them for 3 years anyways! But thanks for thinking about me!!!!!

I would love them if Lilly hasn't picked yet! Love from Miles City, MT

oh, I don't think your husband is foolish at all -- I think we all forget to lock our doors at one time or another (want me to tell you about the times I've accidentally hit the automatic door openers on the key chain and walk outside to find one or more doors on the van wide open -- but luckily everything was still there -- talk about feeling like a moron! lol!! But it's easy to do without realizing it, when you're in a meeting, and just looking for a pen in your purse, and something nudges the wrong button, and you're just the right distance from the parking lot...heck, I've even had it happen from the 6th floor!)
And, I just remember what it is like to be at home with a small one. As joyous as every day is with each little change they make, sometimes we forget to make time or do things for ourselves. I just thought with as many nice things as you were doing for every one (with your giveaways and gifts) that a swap was a way for your readers to give back a little bit! :-) But I like to give too, so I understand, I think! Peace ~~

Thanks for explaining! I definitely understand the need for "speaking in code" to avoid hurting people's feelings. But in general, don't women ALWAYS speak in code as far as men are concerned?
Actually, I am SAD that my son and your daughter aren't going to get to grow up in the time we did where you could still feel safe!!!
Carrie, I understand about just wanting to give the tags away. So, I'd LOVE to have them, if Lillian says I can. I hope that someday my creations will be good enough that people will want them!!!!
