These will be stand-alone Capitals letters.

3) If for some reason you are unable to fulfill your commitment please, please give me as much notice as possible.

no themes, makers choice. I have been in some that were themed such as Halloween or Christmas. I thought i would start with a basic one.

I'll take F and T.

I remember doing these swaps like 6 years ago. There were themed groups(christmas, halloween, school, love, beach, pets, black/white, etc) and unfortunately I didn't get full alphabets back. But maybe that was because there were too many groups and it was a big swap. Hopefully this goes smoother

Question for Cricut users. I have my Cricut set on 3" for shadow. After it cut the shadow and I measured it, it actually measures at 3 and 1/8" is that going to be okay? Is there some way to adjust for that small of an amount? Comments???

I have a question for you ladies. As I was cutting my alphas, I noticed they are quite big. What do you use these alphas for? If you use them in a scrapbook you would probably only be able to get 4 alphas across a page. Are you using them in something else, and if so, what? Just looking for ideas. TIA

you can use them in a mini or an 8x8 alpha book where you use every letter of the alpha and put a photo to do with that letter. That is what I plan on useing them for. I am quite excited about it actually. Another thing you can use them for is If you have a persons name that belongs to that letter use it as an intial and put it on a layout like T=toni C=carmalita A=Addison so for a page I would use TCA or just the T. I have so many grands that I will use up the letters.

I love the excitement you show. As hostess that honors me. in lieu of hostess gift you can make me an extra letter, but hostess gifts are never requested or expected i just love makeing and hosting for you guys.

I got one letter finished. Bit of a story behind it.

Usually- when I'm working my dog hangs out under my table, on her own personal pillow like so:


That wasn't good enough for her tonight. Tonight- she jumped and whined and cried until I lifted her up. She didn't want to be held either. She crawled across me (scratching up my neck and chest in the process) until she got exactly in the middle of my main work table (I have two tables making an L) and there she sat while I cut and matted each letter. (I kicked her off when I started stickling- I don't need red glitter glue on my pup.



So there are two different letters you might be getting for the N's

I am checking in if its not one thing its something else. I have the nasty sinus infection that's going around and it went into my glands.

everyone's letters are great. How do you feel about a monthly swap new theme each month. Sign ups till last fay of month when swap due. I know holidays are coming up so it might get hectic but them make great monograms on cards or gifts.

She needed attention and she did what it took to get it, just like a child. Its frustrating but sweet. I am thinking of a pet to keep me company but I barley keep me alive the thought of another life scares me.

Heather- I was terrified of being responsible for another life, but its easier to take care of her than it is to take care of me. She's just a darling, and the love is so worth the walks and feeding and occasional mess (very occasional thanks to whoever house trained her.)
