T'was the Day Before Tim's 12 Tags

Been reading about all the excitement and buzz about the annual 12 Tags of Christmas by Tim Holtz. Can you believe this will be the 5th year? It gets bigger every year. Looks like there may be lots of new and interactive features for 2011. Here is poem that is reposted from 2009:

T'was the night before Tim's Tags of Christmas
When all through the Web
Every stamper was stirring in wake of this fun event!
With Distress Inks and Blending Tools ready to go,
Just a wondering which stamps Tim Holtz will show.
With #8 Tags and the Must Have Craft Sheet 
awaiting Day 1,
Every stamper in town is getting anxious for some 
Tim Holtz Christmas fun.
So Stamp away, stamp away, stamp away all,
For Tim Holtz Tags of Christmas
 will keep you from the busy mall.                
                                       -By Daisy Sparks (2009)
