Circle of Friends

We are a new group of some crazy ladies! We are here to share our work, get some real critique and most of all, chat about our everyday lives! We will always have a shoulder to lean on, a place to share with friends and a place to challenge ourselves.

Guidelines

1. This will be a friendly environment to escape from the realities of real life. The main focus of this group will be our creations; layouts, cards and home décor, but we look forward to learning more about each other, sharing our joys, triumphs, trials and tribulations are encouraged.

2. We will share tips, tricks and techniques that we have found and or learned and encourage all members to do the same. Please leave love in the members' gallery and designate COF so we know who we are. Critiquing will be done in this forum.

3. We all realize that there are lives outside of forum ! Please just check in on a regular basis. If you’re going to be gone just let us know. We care about you!

4. We will do a monthly challenge. The members will alternate choosing the challenge every month. If you are unable to complete by the deadline please let us know. We understand life’s little emergencies, but please at least try the challenges.

5. Big decisions will be made by the group and as a group. Everyone will have a voice.

6. One of the biggest guidelines is that we all have FUN!!! While these guidelines are not etched in stone they are a start and will help to keep things stress free and running smoothly.

(Thanks to Spacey Tracy for the framework of our guidelines.)

On Saturday, I went to HL. Usually Doug stays in the sub. This time, we got a parking spot right in front of the doors. He parks, I go to get out and he says well wait for me. I was shocked. So he goes in with me and I get what I want and then I went to look at Cricut carts since they were on sale, didn't see any I wanted there. Then he asked me which ones I had on my list. I said they didn't have them at HL. He said Brittni wanted to buy me something from just her, cuz all the kids do that. Then they give me something from all of them. Anyways, I got to thinking and the carts I ordered from custom crops should be here by Dec. 24, I told Brittni if she wants to give me one, I will open the box, make sure they are all there and everything is ok and then she can take them all to her room, pick one, wrap it and keep the others in her room and then I won't know which one she picked to give to me. They thought that was a good idea. And when we were in HL looking at Cricut stuff, Doug seen the Jukebox there. He said Oh man, now I suppose you need one of those. I laughed and told him I already had one, got it for $39.99. HL wanted 89.99 for it. He laughed. He asked me how could they sell it for so cheap when HL was asking $50 more.

Check this out. I just had to comment on this one. Good grief.




The guilt isn't worth it. Honest mistakes happen and it's one thing but knowingly paying for only 1 while KNOWING there's more than 1 is wrong. It is shoplifting. No different than putting a separate item into another item and only paying for one.

Oh, Yvonne, how scary! I did something like that in a boyfriend's car. How I didn't hit another car is simply a miracle. I ended up in the emergency lane at a 90 degree angle. It was the hand of God since there had been cars all around me when I hydroplaned. Stupid boyfriend's tires were bald!!!

We have one that runs constantly for dust problems that causes our allergies to act up badly. When I boiled some eggs dry, man what a stink, it helped to get rid of the smell. I ran it on high for a couple of days.

I'm making my beans and rice recipe so I can take pix of it. And I'm cooking rice by itself so I can make fried rice and take pix of it.

Now I'm copying over a honey-whole wheat pancake recipe, gonna make it, too.

All to get pix. And to make up for not cooking. I feel guilty so I'm doing penitence.

Hi, I'm here! All this talk, food and shopping.

Viv - do you have a rice cooker? I ended up with one that ds's Vietnamese roommate left at the house when they all move. I love it and would replace it if it broke (my ultimate compliment for any appliance). Red beans?

Marlene, I have 3 rice cookers and now I want an Iranian style one. Different sizes. The Iranian style one will crisp the rice that's touching the pot. They normally flip the pot over and service it shaped that way. And it's delicious. My sister has one.

I can't stand American style rice. I'm very picky about rice, must be Japanese rice. I finally found a brand of brown rice I like but can't find it anymore. I'm spoiled when it comes to certain things.

If I ever make rice... it's just instant. The funny thing is that I do NOT eat instant mashed potatoes. Those things are just nasty.

I found out on saturday night when we had a fire call, it was -12 degrees out there. I know it was really cold.

It is now 7.5 degrees, it was -2 when I took Brittni to school.

I love Cherry Pepsi, but can't drink it now with the caffeine. Now I'm drinking caffeine free Pepsi. I am NOT a fan of Coke at all!

Yeah, I get lots of migraines. but I have never had stars before it, always during it. My head isn't hurting at all, my left eye does.

Do you have migrain meds? If so, I'd take one now just to stop it before it starts if that is what it's it.

8.5x11 Recipe Pages

Waldorf Salad & Fruit Salad


Sausage Balls & Fried Clams

Same as before. I'm open to critique, especially to add things. I think my pages are kinda blah and really want to see how other people would do these.

I really like them... I think a recipe book should have less 'clutter' on the page anyway. How did you make the bowl on the first page? I love how you've cut out the pictures around the dish on the 2nd pages. The only think I'd do differently is make the titles bolder.

The titles do tend to get lost. Hmmm... I really should be using my Wishblade . Been lazy but creating more work for myself trying to use things I've not used

Move over Paula Dean! I like your pages the way they are. It is supposed to be all about the food and the recipe, right? You have accomplished that very well!

Marlene, you asked me last week how Danny did at his Christmas thingy... Well, the thingy itself was so stupid! The lady who was running it was singing into a microphone that kept going in and out in this little tiny shrill voice. You couldn't even hear the kids. Danny did a great job playing his tamborine and smiled through most of it though. However, he got hot a couple of times and took off his vest. Everyone was commenting on how "that kid is stripping!" Which was really funny! He was surprised to see me at the end and said that he was sure that I would show up. Not one tear - mission accomplished! WHEW!

I just uploaded pix of the beans and rice, fried rice and honey-oatmeal pancakes. I'll pick them up on errands today.

We won't see dd and the boys for Christmas but maybe Friday.

Big brother called me to buy something for our mother. Neither of us have a clue what but I think I might have an idea. She has a long counter but it's always cluttered with things on it. Plus we bought her a mini-oven, which will take up more room,too. So I think I'll go over there for a quick visit. Measure things out and see if I can fit in a cabinet or baker's rack somewhere. I'm pretty sure I can but want to make sure first.

I can't scrap with Noah. It wouldn't be good if he ran off with my Cutter Bees!

You've got to be able to scrap somehow... Don't you have a high table? Or maybe give him some supplies or a coloring book and crayons (if he's not into eating them). My kids used to hang out in my scrap room with me and just do other things (they still do!). They would try to get my things but they quickly learned what was allowed and what wasn't.

Well, let's just say that it would be dangerous if Noah even went in my scraproom. haha...

Matt will be home in an hour and then maybe I can head into my room, close the door and LOCK it!

Viv, I was just over in the scraplift the person before you challenge leaving love and I saw a comment that you left. You told the person that it was a nice design - she scraplifted me. And don't worry, she gave me proper credit. Just thought it was funny!

Leesa, I forgot to tell you that I supported my LSS! I bought a $100 gift certificate (which I got a free $15 gift certificate for doing so). They just put the money into my account right on their computer as a credit.
Also, I have a question... Are you supposed to pay taxes on a gift certificate?

No, you don't pay taxes on any gc. If you did, you'll end up paying sales tax twice. That's no legal in any state as far as I know.
