Welcome to the new home of The Scrappin' Derelicts, formerly known as the Scrap Happens Critique Group. After knocking out 780 pages of chat we decided to pack our bags and move to newer territory, along with a new name to reflect our unique, group personality.

This is US!!!

SEPTEMBER BIRTHDAYS


October 13 - Guylaine


AUGUST ANNIVERSARIES



_________________________ ___________________
The Secret Sistahs
The Secret Sistahs will run for 6 months, beginnig today and ending October 1st when we will have a new drawing for names.

Rule 1: Send your secret sistah, cards and notes for no reason at all but to say you care.
Rule 2: Don't go overboard. Do not want anyone feeling badly because they cannot do as much as someone else may be doing. Can be both Scrapbook and non-scrapbook related.
Rule 3: Let your HEART lead you. Listen to the still small voice that tells you your sistah needs a little encouragement.
Rule 4: Don't post anything that you are positively sure will give away your identity.
Rule 5: Have fun. Love one another!!!

Each person should post a little something about themselves in their blog so that their secret sistah can peek at it and know something about them, such as favorite candy, favorite color, favorite foods, etc. favorite scrapbook papers, etc.

Brenda. When you are in your siggy. You highlight the text you want colored then look up to the right and there are little squares that have colors in them. You click one and then submit.

Sorry I went mia there for a bit. I was trying to calm Annie down. She's supposed to be doing a sleepover tomorrow and she was all keen, but at the end of the night she realized she's just not ready. Now she's so upset thinking they'll make fun of her. I totally understand and had a feeling she wouldn't be able to do it...she's growing up fast...but not that fast...she always took longer to let go then her friends. Anyways, she probably won't go and I'll make up some story to her friends to cover for her.

She's done a few before...one was fine..two she had to come home. The last one she came home from was last year so she has that memory in her mind. I totally understand...it took me forever to feel comfortable sleeping away from home.

Sorry I flaked on you guys last night. My computer was being stupid, as it often is during high winds. It did allow me to get a LO done, but I missed you guys! Terri, thanks for starting the thread when I apparently dragged my feet too much!

Terri, Dale, and Tracy - great new avatars. Tracy, I like what your DH did to yours.

Terri, my brother's best friend grew up next door to us. I can't tell you how many times they were supposed to have a sleepover and he would come with every intention of staying, then end up going home at 2:00 in the morning. I think it's really hard for kids to leave that safety zone of home. I'm glad you are so understanding with Annie about it and that you are helping her save face with her friends by giving her an excuse. If she doesn't feel ready, she probably wouldn't make it. Poor kid.

Ok, now I am going to go back and read what I missed last night in the other thread, then come back over here.

Where's Guylou??? We didn't lose her, I hope.

Ok, lets see if I can remember all that you chatted about...

Dale, glad to hear your DS is moving on and getting through this tough time. It does feel like the end of the world to them.

Terri, thanks for starting it. My feelings are not hurt at all. And you saved the girls from a long, chatty first post. Hello...I can't write less than a book. I am incapable of that.

Tracy, I love that pic and think it will work great with Danni's LO. Post the pic in your gallery and do another one of you looking up or down now. Queen Dale, do you order her to do it???

Danni, wrinkles??? You are one fine lookin' chick, so he can get over himself. What was hard for me was the first time I didn't get carded. Up until I was about 32 or 33, I used to get carded. It's all changed now.

Brenda, I hope you have a better day at work today. Sorry to hear about your kitty. We were so devastated when our cat died in 2006. She's the one in my "Angel" and "love Bites" LOs (duh). She also lost a lot of weight before she died. In fact, she lost three pounds in less than a week. That's a lot, since she only started out at 11 pounds.

Danni, about Buster....our former next door neighbor had an American Bull Terrier and Pit Bull mix. That dog was so sweet but man, was she dumb!

Shana and Guylou, where are you? Hey, that rhymed. Anyway, get over here, girls!

Hi, Danni! Will you play paintball with them? I've never done that, but I want to try. My brother plays. Well, he hasn't in a while since the guy who used to play with him passed away. Ok, before I get all sad, I'll shut up.

I got one LO finished last night. I'll try to post a pic tonight. It's in the same style as my last one, since it will be the facing page. I always try to make my pages match in color scheme and style if they are going to be facing each other.

morning girlies. Yeah, it is Friday. I am going in a bit late, just relaxing first with a cup of coffee and some chat time, unless of course you are all gone already.
Sorry bout not saying goodnight, I got kicked off of the computer again!! So I went upstairs and started on my cards. I really like how they have turned out. Can't wait for you all to see them. I got the design down and have made 2 so the rest should be simple. Hey Terri, can you post on the first page how many masculine cards we are doing? And when it is due and who is participating? Thanks.
Also, post your challenge, thanks. I knew you'd be doing that. For all I know you already did, I will go check the first post.

Good morning girls.. Sorry I was MIA AGAIN last night. Dh and I have been at each others throat's for 3 days and I have had enough from him!
I am SOOOO HAppy (to say the least) that we have a new home! Hope to be more apart of this group than what I have been in the past week!
As for the total # on the Card Swap.. It's 6... not including yourself. Hope that helps.
Well, I have some kids to tend to. I will try to get back on here as soon as I get a few things done around the house... like I said in the first part of this post.. I have been fighting with dh for 3 days now, and I have spent ALLLLL morning on the phone with him! He's IMPOSSIBLE! (at least that's what his sister has to say about him..lol)
TC ladies... Have a Blessed Good Friday!

Hi, Brenda and Shana.

Brenda, I'll bet you can't wait til that whole financial mess is cleared up. I just sent a check for my credit card company and it made me think of that mess of yours. It still makes me cringe.

Hey, Shana. Sorry to hear that DH is acting like a horse's behind. Men can be like that sometimes. When we get in arguments, I try to remind myself that Rick could not tick me off so much if I didn't love him like I do! I hope that things get worked out soon. I know how stressful it can be to be arguing with the DH.

I have not started my cards yet. I have high hopes of starting them next week. I'll get them done in time, though. I promise.

Guylou, is our poll posted yet? I'm gonna go look.

Good news, girls! My car is ready and all it needed was a tune up. Yippeee!!! We had to wait on parts. That's what took so long. We are going to pick it up today after I spend some time in Annapolis at the "celebration" of a life.

Danni, you had asked about ways to use the KI Lace paper. I was stuck for inspiration on it, too. Here's a link to this month's challenge using it. You might find some good ideas there:

Morning Ladies! Thanks for the info Shana...I made the changes!!! As for the fighting with your dh...I hope it resolves itself soon. Do you think maybe there's alot of extra stress in the house due to the additional family? Anyways, don't worry, these things will pass!!!


HOpe your Friday passes quickly Brenda and Dale. Then you're off for the weekend!
Gina...I'm glad you're not upset. Alot of the members were having trouble loading pages last night, so that's why we went ahead and moved. Plus, the fact that some of us are extremely impatient!!!(cough..cough..cough...Tracy) Hey...I always looked for my Christmas presents....I just had to know. I have zero patience!

Danni...paintball...hope you're not doing that!!! What kind of shoes are you buying...please share pictures...I MUST see them!!! Shoe shopping is just the BEST!!!!! Your size never changes and everything always looks good!!!

So it looks like Annie is going. She woke up this morning all ready...so I haven't mentioned anything. I hope she can do it as it will be a huge confidence boost!

BTW...I'm getting my color done tomorrow so I will be doing another picture Guylaine! This will not be the one!!!

speaking of which...WHERE ARE YOU GUYLAINE....hope you find us!!!

Well gotta run...I"m off to bring Annie to her friends then we're going to Dollarama so I'll look for those little embellies Gina. If I find them I'll get some extra! Anyone else interested?

Have a very Happy Friday!!!

Hi, Terri. I am rockin' at my desk. Rick heard one of my fave songs on the radio yesterday. Of course, he had to come tell me and now I can't get it out of my head. I LOVE this song. It is so much fun. I think I like it because I have a big butt!

I love it when no one is here, because I can play music and not worry about offending or irritating anyone.

What are you up to today?

Hey, I just typed a post and it literally disappeared off my screen. Weird.

Anyway, I love songs like that, for some reason. They always make me smile. Some others that I always turn up on the radio: I'm a Loser Baby, Brick House, Doin' the Butt, Been Caught Stealin', and Wild Thing. How about you? What songs make you smile and sing along?

Oh, no! I just found out that the woman who is supposed to work that convention with me on March 29 will not be able to do so! I hope I am not at this table by myself!

BTW, Terri, I think you should add "closed and active" to our title. Not that we want to be a clique or anything! And with the understanding that our members can invite others as long as we are all okay with it. After all, that's how you got me! Danni invited me (she's regretting it right now, I think - )

Let's see, I've listened to:
I Will Survive
Baby Got Back
Been Caught Stealing
Brown Eyed Girl
I'm a Loser (Beck)

Now I gotta figure out what's next. This is fun. I don't get to listen to a lot of music at work. Maybe some Daughtry, in honor of Tracy and because that man is so sexy.

Don't have time to catch up yet on comments-just wanted to correct myself-I'm shoe shopping for Seth-not me,lol. I wish. BBL. Oh & no,I'm not paintballing-it hurts getting hit w/those-played once & that's enough for me. Would get mad when I got hit-i KNow-that's hard to believe,huh?

If you're anything like how I shop, you'll go for shoes for Seth and come home with some for you, too. In fact, I think I hear that pair of chucks calling you....

Danni.....Danni....come buy me....Danni....

Did you hear it???

Hey there Gina.. You still here? Or are you off doing the "Butt" DANCE? I LOVED that song... Even though I've seen the video a hundred times, I still sat there and listened to it again! Okay.. So I went under the knife and bought myself some silicon toys... but I only did it, because I needed the top half to match the bottom half!
Thanks for the support ladies... I really mean that. Dh and I spoke again and he apologized for the way he was acting and the words he said. We are going to sit down TOGETHER and figure things out.
See.. the fight was about finances and the budget that we created together at the beginning of March. Well, the first thing he said to me.. was that "I" was going to be the down fall of this budget! Well, I was given $400. into my envelopes to use on 4 things... Food, Gas, Blow $, and Toiletries. Well, I STUCK to my guns, and I actually ended up having $90 left over at the end of the 2 weeks... Well, he wanted to buy a chainsaw from my brother for $100. He asked me for it, and I told him that he will have to work it in the budget, and not..."NO!" He agreed and he bought the chainsaw. He went to the bank later that week and withdrew the $$$ to give back to me, so I can put it back into my Envelopes. Well, he never gave me the $$$ and swore up and down that he did. This went on and on... before I knew it.. things were said (that shouldn't have ) and he ended up having to get off the phone, so that he could get back to work. Oh! And he told me o add up all of MY receipts and figure out where "I" spent the $$$. So I did, and sure enough... I came up $90 SHORT! (DUH!) Well, THEN... I added up all of HIS debit card transactions (mind you.. I hadn't used my debit card in 3 weeks) His total came to $328.15!!! I was SHOCKED! So... when he decided to call me back.. I threw that in his face! He didn't have a D A M N thing to same to me! Well, we calmed down, he admitted he was wrong and promised to surrender his debit card to me and see if that helps! Do you SEE why I am so ANGRY right now?
Okay.. sorry to write a novel here... but I NEEDED to get this out and maybe I can put it behind me!

Hi, Shana. Write any novels you want. Then I won't feel like the only one who writes them!

Oh, boy, can I EVER see why you are ticked off. My first hubby did the same thing to me on vaca one time, in that he accused me of spending all of our money we had set aside for it. I remember throwing all of my receipts in his face in front of a bunch of our friends and telling him to add them up and get back to me. Then I stomped out! Of course, like your DH, he was the one spending like mad and had not realized it. The difference here is that your DH really loves you and wants to work it out. My first hubby and I were not meant to be together at all. I am glad you are going to sit down and figure it all out. And it's a step in the right direction that he is handing over his card and letting you manage the money.

well, him telling me that he'll hand over his debit card and him ACTUALLY DOING IT, is two different stories. I seriously doubt he'll give me his card. He's just too prideful in that aspect. but we are going to handle the $$$ together and keep ALL receipts to compare at the end of each two weeks. He's just SOOOO stubborn! He gets that from his father!
