Once upon a time, things got quiet here on the weekends, so a thread was started to just hang out and do a virtual crop. Since then it has expanded to run all week long. We have our regulars, but new friends are always welcome, too.
And we miss some of our old friends too!!!!
FAIR WARNING: We may talk about anything and everything. We're women. We chat. You never know what might come up in conversation.

So come on! Don't be bashful! Just jump in wherever we are, and we'll be glad to get you caught up on what's happening. We never know what we're going to talk about or how silly we will get.

Schools have been closed for 2 days, they were sent home early on Wednesday. The river is overflowing. Water in my basement. Car died Wednesday, because of all the rain (car died on my way to work and Brian had to go rescue it and my boss rescued me). It's stuck at work that I had to leave early from because of the water rising.
Right now I'm tired of seeing or hearing the word rain or water.
I have water in my basement as well, it seems to be weeping out of the cinder blocks. It's only on the laundry room side though, nothing in the craft room. I think there might be some sealing issues with our front steps.
Well, can say it has truly been a test of my newly dry basement. Made for a bit of a long day with jamie yesterday, he's not used to being stuck in the house.
I have most of my supplies gathered, I just need to get them all packed into a usable form. And decide how many of my toys I want to take with me too. Some I will take and maybe leave in the car unless I need them I guess. Depends on how much space I have. Won't be the same as going to PDH.
Sure wish the weather was going to clear up here more. The area I'm going to can be beautiful, but it will be hard to walk around and photgraph stuff if it's raining and my head is pounding.
We haven't had any rain all summer here in Northern CA, it has been pretty mild. Our rainy season starts in October and lasts through March. Sorry about your rainy troubles.... it's either feast or famine right?
Quiet night here, waiting to watch the finale for Torchwood tonight and just hanging out, haven't done anything crafty for a while.
Hi everyone! I wanted to check in and say that I'm still alive. I was taking a facebook/forums break. It did me good.
I hope everyone is well. I'm 15 weeks pregnant now. So thrilled to be in the second trimester. I had 2 friends staying with us for a week. It was really nice to see them again. She's about 18 weeks pregnant. It was nice to bond.
I haven't been scrapbooking too much but I did buy some paper and a really nice water colour set. I've done some massive reoganizing including my scrap room so I'll post before and afters.
It's still hot as blazes here which is very rare for us. It's been dry too. Fire ban all summer.
First of all...I'm still in the "welcome all rain drops" mode. We were SOOOOO dry this summer, and even this week we've really only had misty/drizzly stuff. Didn't get anything from Irene...mostly got wind from Lee. I'm just glad to see stuff greening up again.
Second...Kim...SO JEALOUS. I can't get Torchwood, and I miss my Capt. Jack. *sniff*
Susy...welcome back...glad to hear the pregnancy is going well.
We had Ethan the past two nights. He's finally back home, but I don't know when he'll be back. I really thought this was going to be Kim's easiest semester school-wise, but other things keep popping up that are sucking up her "free" days to do homework. Oh well...only 3 more months...
Work is picking up for me a bit, too, which has kept me away from being here quite so much. I'm missing it, but it's good to have the work coming in again after a couple slow months in July and August.
Painted my bathroom at my mom's house. Bought 2 new ceiling fans, hoping that my brother will install them tomorrow for me. My aunt got a wall in the living room ready to paint, she will do that for me tomorrow. Then I will come over in the evenings and get the bedroom ready to paint. I want to paint it on Thursday, my day off.
home. nice weekend. Not what I am used to, but nice. Mary Kim at Paper Doll House just has me spoiled I guess. I had some issues with the fibromyalgia and the headaches, and ended up doing some running with my friend. But all in all it was productive.
I wound up doing 41 pages....well, let's say I am about 10 minutes away from finishing the 41st page. But I just couldn't work another minute last night. And today there just wasn't the time.
Bill made lots of progress on my room. I'm very excited.
Tomorrow I have Jamie all day, so I have to get up early. Still I hope to spend some of the time outside on the porch getting ready for the garage sale.
