Welcome to Grand Delusions!!! This very thread may be my grandest "delusion" yet

The purpose of Grand Delusions is tri-fold.

1. To be a social area for grandmothers to talk about life, jobs, kids, grandchildren, husbands, scrapping, crafting and paper crafting, and anything else that we can graciously discuss amongst ourselves without starting WW III. No vicious gossip please I mean if you're going to talk about me at least do it in PM's I'd love to have a morning coffee hour every day. Coffee with friends is a wonderful way to start the day

2. To be a place to share crafting ideas (scrapping and other crafts), learn from eachother, and share finished product. That means you're welcome to post photos of your LO's, projects and other crafts, but no one is REQUIRED to. You can post only the ones you are particularly proud of, or you can simply direct us to your gallery if you don't want to post all 14 photos that you just uploaded if that's easier for you

3. To be a support mechanism in our roles as both parents, grandparents and children as we find ourselves increasingly caught inbetween the three roles. Let's laugh together, cry together, rant and rave together,,,,,,,and maybe it won't be so bad when we're done

To post here you must be a grandmother OR have a grandchild on the way Step grands COUNT!

You must be willing to treat the other posters graciously.

What we're NOT:

We're not a critique group in the strict sense of the word. Please feel free to post LO's and projects if you like, but you're not reqired to. Nor is anyone REQUIRED to leave comments, although they are nice Leave them if you desire,,,,,,,perhaps you only have time to leave a few,,,,,,better a few than nothing

If you're LOOKING for a true critique group, I know one of the very best for grandmothers, and I would be happy to direct you there This is much more casual than a true critique group. Think of it as,,,,,,critique-lite

So come on in, kick off your shoes, pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea, sink into one of the overstuffed chairs, and tell us all about yourself!

and WELCOME!!! Nobody needs permission to join, just come right in and make yourself at home

We have not even started decorating for Christmas. I have never waited this late to get things put up. although Dana doesn't have half the stuff I do to decorate for Christmas. I think they think less is more. And as for shoppin I am hoping to be able to go Sat. to finish my shoppin. most of the things we are giving this year are homemade. So thats where we are out.

Mornin Holly...
Well we had to wait till after Ally's birthday to decorate for Christmas cause the whole livingroom was decorated in vampire stuff for the weekend. and Heather is planning to get the tree on Thursday so I guess we will be decorating it either Thursday night or Friday not sure. But then the girls go to Scotts prolly Friday after school and when they come back we will have all the rest done.
Nikki is sick she may not be able to go to school today. She got the H1N1 shot last week and is now sick. she was up and down all night coughing blowing heer nose, and not being able to breath. Guess I need to go get her some meds after I get Ally off to school. I thought I might send her to school if she was not running a fever but they will just send her back home if she is coughing bad cause they do not want to spread the germs.
So guess I will be taking care of her today. I sure hope it goes away quick and I don't catch it as I do not want to be spending christmas in the hosp.

Things here are same old, same old. Not bad, but certainly nothing exciting or earth shattering!!

Does it look like you will be able to get a car soon??
