What is this thread about?

Well, things get quiet here on the weekends, so a thread was started to just hang out and do a virtual crop. Since then it's grown into more. Several people are now "regular" including myself. We chat about anything and everything. (Warning: Sometimes we stray into areas that may be considered "adult," although we always try to be tasteful about it.) We share our latest layouts, pictures, whatever interests us. We have fun and encourage each other.

It's now all week long, too. Since it is a new thread each week, it's easier for anyone to join. Even though we start over each week, it's STILL pages and pages long. Don't be intimidated, we are happy to have anyone drop by and say hello. Some of us read all the replies and keep up, but it is not required. Warning: It can get addictive!

Please leave updates about yourself here You can also place Prayer Requests here. This is for those who can't be online as much as they would like to be. At least this way, there's highlights from this thread.

VCW Yahoo! Group

This is a place where we can store info - email addresses, geographical locations, birthdays. (We started this because we wanted to know who we have to go looking for after major events such as the recent hurricanes in the U.S.)

Sign up for the group. You have to be approved, and currently Jenni (c-leaper) is the only one doing that. (She will probably grab a person or two here in the next couple days to help oversee the admin duties.) The approval process isn't because we're elitist or anything - it's just our way of making sure that those who have access to our info there are "known" to us and not just people signing up randomly to farm the information. The purpose of this site is to store emergency contact information for the members of our group. Please be respectful of its intended use and do not abuse the information.

Once you're approved, you can add your info to the database and/or your birthday to the calendar. If you need help with either of these functions, just yell and someone here will give you instructions.

It's Secret Santa time! Email Liz/Moxie at faboomoxie@verizon.net with your name and address by November 15 in order to take part. Participation is limited to people we know in the thread, meaning if you just posting here, you'll be included if you want, but if you're signing up for the Secret Santa and you never post on this thread, please don't sign up. The point of our Secret Santa is to surprise and be surprised by our friends and not just to send and recieve gifts from random strangers. Price limit is $10.

I'll be drawing names out of a hat to match the Secret Santas with their recipients, and will be in contact with everyone by November 17th. Please email me when you ship your package just in case there's a problem, and I'm aiming for us to get everything in the mail by December 7, so it has plenty of time to arrive in time for Christmas.

Most of us also really love BLING and encourage bling usage...some to the point of "pimping" but hey, whatever gets the blingy point across!

Who, US???? Pimp BLING??? NEVER!




Come visit Our Gallery to meet some of the irregular regulars!

So come on! Don't be bashful! And don't be afraid of the fact that this thread MOVES. 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.

WARNING: Reading of, or participation in, this thread could result in food or drink being sprayed across your computer or sleepless nights ... Just read responsibly.

Ugh it's raining. Ugh it's cold.

Ugh my ear feels funny and I can hear my pulse.

Ugh having second thoughts about plans for the day. Might concentrate more on craft show prep and less on video job. dunno. everytime I think something is under control the evil little "what about this?" voice pops up.

argh.

Been up for a few hours, got laundry done, 2.5 pages in the mini-album, and managed to deal with ds#1 w/o incident today!

Last nights meeting went long... there were a few new parents there and they wanted to stay to talk to me individually. One mom is so lost about what to do.

I remember that time. But back then there were even less resources and people that knew what to do to help you. So I know she is going to be OK. I'll be sending her some helpful info today too.

I have a jar that I am trying to recycle/reuse for embellishment storage.

Problem is.... it had minced garlic in it. I'm trying to get rid of the smell. I have washed and washed it. Let soap soak in it. Let it air out.

I now have scented potpourri liquid in it.

{fingers crossed}

not as ready as I want to be.

I'm going to my crosswalk this morning and then I'm going to come home and use masking tape and the floor to create a mock up of my table. That way I know where everything is supposed to go and I make sure I don't forget anything.

I will be happy if I make my table fee ($20) back. I will be thrilled with one new customer. I will be over the moon with anything above and beyond that.
