2) This is a critique group so comments on LOs must be left. ALL constructive criticism is appreciated. Although when leaving a comment with constructive criticism please make it in the actual thread instead of the gallery where we leave Love. Comments should be positive. With that said, don't get your feelings hurt everyone is ONLY trying to help each other and make each other the best we can be.

3) Commenting in the thread: We all realize that there are lives outside of sb.com ! With that said please just check in on a regular basis... weekly at minimum. If you're going to be gone just let us know. We care about you and don't want to send the hound dogs out looking for you! If there are pages and pages for you to catch up on just read them. You do not have to comment on every single thing, we just want everyone in the loop.

4) We will do all challenges and swaps On an up to you Basis; IF you are unable to complete by the deadline please let me know. We can extend for a few days.
Everyone is URGED to give and vote on Challenge suggestions...If you don't suggest Things you would like to do (and/or) don't vote for the suggestions...Then No Complaining about what challenge is required...
all Suggestions, Votes, and complaints or problems are to be done by PM not in the Forum!!!!
Everyone is Encouraged to also do at least one LO/card/project a month just to keep our minds in gear.
***If you Sign up...You MUST Complete the Challenge***

5) Also Any Big Decisions that will effect the group will be discussed and voted on by the group. If it's something that can't wait I will keep the voting open for 1 week only, so try to keep in the loop...I will always keep my vote for last as well as remain impartial in any situation. I am the group driver. So I will do my best to keep things running smooth.
***If you Don't Vote or if you get out Voted, Please Do Not take it Personal***

These guidelines are the only thing we ask each of us to adhere to... this is the only way we can keep things drama free and running smooth

Hope everyone had a safe evening last night! I stayed in, watched a little tv and finished reading a book.

What is everybody doing today? I'm going to clean up the house, do some laundry and then try to get some scrapping in.

Here it is ladies… The Swap with the Other Groups... Please let me know who I can count on to Participate...Robbie will be Starting a Thread so all the groups may chat with easch other if they wish...
Big Hugs, Nicki
_________________________ _________________________

This is going to be a swap of Artist’s Trading Cards. We hope it will be a way to get to know ladies in the other groups! It will also be a fun way to get to actually see each other’s styles and have a wonderful memento from our groups!!

If you have never done a swap, don’t be shy!! The Taj Mahal’s swap was the first I had ever done! It’s fun! Never made an ATC, you are not alone!!! I haven’t either and I know there are lots of people that are joining this swap who haven’t!! There are loads of terrific examples in the gallery! Just do a search! It will be fun!!

The Swap…

Artist Trading Cards-standard size 2 ½ by 3 ½ inches.
Your style on the front
Any colors you choose.

The twist- You must include a heart and sheer ribbon on the front.

On the back-
Your name and screen name.
State and country
Optional- a little something about you.

We will have groups of 8 to 10. How many groups will be dictated by how many people sign up.

The Mailing…

Mail to me NO LATER than January 31!!!
When you are ready to mail, please send your cards in a padded envelope to me. (your driver will provide my address.)
Include an extra self-addressed envelope for mailing them back to you.
Put the same amount of postage on the envelope that it took to mail it to me.
Those of you who live out of the US, please just include a self-addressed envelope. I will cover mailing them back to you.

So let’s get started!!!!

Please provide your group name when you are signing up! We are going to mix the groups! Sign-ups will end on January 7. Groups will be assigned and posted on January 8.

This is my first time to host a swap, be patient with me! If you have suggestions, please feel free to let me know!! I’ll do my very best!

Heather ~ Left you some love! I really like the way you cut around the butterflies! It took me a minute to realize they were photos and not die cuts!

Nicki ~ I think I'd like to join the Swap. I just need to check my work schedule tomorrow to make sure it is realistic for me to commit. I don't want to say yes and then not be able to fullfill my commitment. I'll let you know tomorrow for sure!

I'll be in the group swap!!

Happy New Year Sisters!!! I didn't do much yesterday. My Dad finished cabinet at around 10 though there are still a few things he needs to finish up (door stops, the top piece and cut down the small shelves.) I put some stuff in it yesterday until I ran out of energy then I watched some tv and went to bed. Best night of sleep I got so far. Today we're going over the Jay's Dad's house to celebrate a belated Christmas. I'm so achy but I'm going to make an appearance anyway. My nose hurts so bad too. UGH I hate being sick.
