I am a little excited, as it is a lot of fun making xmas cards and shopping for gifts. However, as for the real xmas spirit, that will while until after Thanksgiving.

Scrapthat said...

Beautiful tags again today!! TFS everyone! :D

Getting just a bit excited about Christmas!

Monika/Buzsy said...

More wonderful tag samples... the different designs and styles... the snowflake trees are so pretty Tracey! I am not in Christmas mode yet... want to get Thanksgiving out of my mind first.

Annette Allen said...

KT Fit Kitty said...

Oh these are gorgeous! I love snowflakes!

Not very excited about Christmas yet. I usually don't get into the mood until after Thanksgiving day.
Love some of these tags again today.

Donna said...

Thanks to all for more great inspiration.
Love the fact that I don't have to stop and wonder what tag design to make next. Just need to make time to photograph and post them!!!

jcobb said...

I look forward to Christmas so much! My son just got married in July and I now have 5 grand-children and a great-grand-daughter so yeah, I'm excited already! Great tags, too!!

Greta said...

Fun cards! I especially love your pink tree one, Tracey--gorgeous!

Lisa's Creative Niche said...

These are beautiful! I wait until after thanksgiving before I get immersed in Christmas!

Colleen said...

Yes, I love Christmas time. And we are taking the whole family to Hawaii, well, actually the week of Thanksgiving and then not coming home until Dec. 1, but I know that will get me in the spirit and I love Melekalikimaka song!! Making tags for everyone is sure putting me in the spirit also!! Can hardly wait to shop for the gifts that the tags will be used for!

Jill said...

I am always excited for Christmas. It's just a matter of sitting down and putting it on paper.

Marilyn said...

Fantastic tags ... except for making Xmas cards, my excitement starts after Thanksgiving.

Marisa said...

So fun to see everyone's take on a tag. Lots of ideas to work with. With the whirlwind of activities as a family, I haven't started to think about Christmas too much yet, other than getting my shopping done in the next week or so (half way there and hope to get it all done by mid November). That takes so much stress off that I can actually enjoy decorating and the season to the fullest :)

Ann K said...

I love the holidays and have started making tags for gifts ... bring it on!

Loydene Brock said...

Thanks! I rather like these modern forms!

Nora N. said...

I am so excited for Christmas! It is my favorite time of year! Love these tags, especially the pink tree one!

Jeanne Jordan said...

All of the tags are gorgeous. I especially like the sprigs of green gathered at the top of Julia Altermann's tag. AND, I like yours with the embossing over the distress inks. Very Pretty!

I'm getting excited because this year I might have a white Christmas my in-laws are taking the whole family to Europe! Big contrast to the normal boiling hot Christmas we have.

Lorie said...

More amazing tags. So beautifully done. I don't think I'd say I'm getting excited about Christmas, but I have been doing a bit of shopping, made my cards and am doing some planning, but not excited yet. That will come after Thanksgiving.

Mary-Anne V said...

BeverlyBL said...

Love all of the beautiful tags. I'm not sure that excited is the right word. But I do know that Christmas is coming and I know that it gathers speed and I need to be getting ready. Tags are a great place to start the prep. Thanks for all of the great ideas.

Lisa Kind said...

I love tags and your annual tag posts! The samples today and on the other days have been fantastic! Great inspiration! I'm not really ready for Christmas, but with all the Christmas inspiration out there I'm getting there!

Megan said...

This series plus all my fun new Christmas stamps are starting to get me excited. Of course, I haven't started shopping yet. And I'm NOT looking forward to winter weather. But it's a start! :)

Jean Bullock said...

These are darling. My favorite is the mistletoe card. How cute and creative.

Helen Gullett said...

Bobby said...

I love the variety of tags, Tracey. No, I'm not excited for Christmas yet. I like to wait until after Thanksgiving before I get in the mood, except for card and tag making, that is. ;)

Kristina B. said...

I'm not excited just yet... I have to get through Thanksgiving first LOL

Lindsey said...

I'm not sure excited is exactly the word... when I think of the number of days left divided by the stuff to do, perhaps anxious is a better word? :D Somehow, it either always gets done or doesn't really seem to matter in the end. ;) Beautiful tags today, but I think I may have to CASE your emboss resist tags!

Barbara said...

I am excited about Christmas because most of my cards that I will need are finished and waiting to be mailed as the season nears. Just a few more to create and I will be able to concentrate on other aspects of the season and I won't have to rush. I love Christmas, especially when I can enjoy the spirit of it!

Robyn Oliver said...

Just a tiny bit excited about Christmas as we are just getting over the joy of the arrival of our second gorgeous little grand daughter. More great tags from you and your guests.

Mary Holshouser said...

The blue snowflake if so pretty.
these are not overly-fussy tags.
Great to see.
thanks for sharing.

Erin (Homemade Cards by Erin) said...

Love these (and I was inspired by yours, will post shortly).

Connie G said...

Some more great projects here. I do not do ink blending but I need to put that on my list to try it out. It gives such a pretty result.

Irene Grau said...

Every year I say I'm going to make card sets as Christmas gifts. And every year I run out of time. But seeing all of these tags makes me think I should do tag sets. Now to decide if I give them at Thanksgiving or as gifts to use next year. Hmmm....

natashakara said...

Beautiful tags. There are so many great ideas :)

Liz Gessner McAllister said...

I am always excited that Christmas is coming. Love spending time with family & friends

TracyM #6773 said...

FABULOUS tags!!!
LOVE your inky background and ELEGANT design!!!
... I dream of making tags like this, needing to practice my ink blending a LOT MORE :)
YES - I'm EXCITED about Christmas but I have to confess, I'm getting NERVOUS too - SO MUCH to do, SO LITTLE time, hoping to decide on designs and get my cards & tags made soon, don't want to run out of time this year!!!

Birgit said...

Janet Zeppa said...

Yes I am getting excited!!
Gorgeous tags!

Maureen Hayes said...

These tags are gorgeous! I am honestly not too excited about Christmas yet, but not because I don't love it, I am currently at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN awaiting some diagnosis that could be serious, so I haven't really had time to get into the spirit yet, I am enjoying seeing what folks are creating on blogs like yours and it is starting to get me thinking about Christmas! Thanks for the pick me up.

Kit said...

After seeing all these lovely tags of course I'm getting excited for Christmas. I really like the white embossed trees.

Karen said...

As soon as I start to create for Christmas, my excitement level increases. This year it was early; I started my cards in late October.

I believe I'm continually excited for Christmas! I must've been an elf in a previous life???

I'm excited about some parts of Christmas, I just dread the shopping. These tags are definitely getting me excited about Christmas crafting.

Beautiful tags. I don't think I'm quite excited about Christmas yet but it's creeping up on us very quickly!

I'm a Little Teapot said...

Hmm...I am starting to shop for Christmas (a small gift here and there) but I don't think I will be excited until I officially make my gift shopping list and spend a day shopping.

KandA said...

Probably more a bit of panic than excitement! Love these tags xx

Crafty Math Chick said...

Lovely tags! I am embarrassed to admit that I started getting excited about Christmas even before Halloween this year - I blame the retailers coming out with festive things so early.

Well I am and I'm not. Not because its coming to fast. Am - because for once I am getting Christmas cards and tags made ahead of time, brilliant.

Brandi R said...

Beautiful tags!

Christmas is always a back and forth for me....I go from being super excited about it to being super stressed over it. So much to do and so little time by the time I actually get started :-D

Dr Sonia S V said...

Oh yes I love christmas and get very excited from November though its not celebrated in a big way here in my city of Banaglore

Christine said...

Love all the tags. I am getting excited about Christmas this year and a bit overwhelmed.

Marianne said...

I'm really happy that Christmas is not a big thing in our house, but Imdo get excited with all the handmade Christmas cards that are filling up the shelves in our living room. They are like my babies that I cherish until it's time to send them off to new homes

Erin (Homemade Cards by Erin) said...

Yes, I love Christmas... even if it's mayhem at work.
