    Glad I could help
    autjo - That website is EXACTLY what I've been looking for!!! The wrist coils are the cheapest I have found so it's perfect, thank you! :)

    Also, I keep debating on luggage tags... do you just give them to people in the OOT bag or before?

We're going away this weekend, so I will take one to check if the hotel key fits.

            Amy I too had the same fear when I received mine!

            I got my VistaPrint business cards so I did a trial run, put in a business card & my security key card from work (same size as electronic room keys) & 6 $1 bills folded up and it all fit! No problem!

            I was totally shocked but it works :)

                  Haha! I love that we all bought the same ones and the same fear =)

                  Yes I really love them now, I have one made sitting on my dining room table and I smile at it every time I walk by :)

                    I bought the around the neck key holders to use instead of the clips or coil wrist band as I have use the other ones before and didnt like them too much. They kept bugging my wrist and the clip snagged my bathing suit on a number of occasions. So I opted for the teathers. I now have to track down the plastic key holders as they are expensive here in Canada.....ugh! lol

                      Suzy! I was looking at some of these online too! The ones I saw were: D-shaped and circle shaped and these ones you can select which colour(s) you want as well.

                      BUT, the mixed colour lot from Oriental Trading Company are quite a bit cheaper. I'm just not sure if they are quite big enough to clip onto the handles of travel mugs like I wanted!! Maybe if there are a couple of us that have different colours, we could split them between us? I'd prefer purple the most, and would go for the blue or black as second choices...

                      merocket59 - It took me a few minutes to figure out what OTC stood for but I got it! I was wondering if you could tell me whether or not they'd be able to clip on to the handle of a travel mug though... most of my guests won't be going anywhere on the resort without their mugs and keys so why not have them attached together!?! Thanks!

                      Kittenheart - I'm in the same club worrying about whether those key holders would be the right size!! I'm relieved to hear that they should fit everything we need. Originally I wasn't going to do luggage tags but now that a site with the little plastic luggage loops was posted (luggage tag loops) then I just might have to order some MORE key holders just for those!! LOL!
