Thanks guys for all the info. I'll let you know how it works. Of course, I will take pictures. They will only wear these that one weekend for the special tournment. It is out of town so I probably won't go - I stay home and take care of the other child and the dogs. This is such a big tournament that they had a hard time finding hotel rooms available. They got 8 rooms and there are 13 girls and their parents - they will be piled up on each other. Does sound like fun though.

I have been scrapping most the day. Can you believe it? I am making recipe cards for a swap, I do pictures a little later.

Congrats on the prize Ria!! I promise you will love those scissors. I have two pair. They are easy on your hands and cut so good.

I got my first order from sb.com today. I ordered Mr. Campy package from Cosmo Cricket . My LSS doesn't carry that brand. It is so cute, can't wait to use it. Guess I had better get busy.

Julie - thanks I'm feeling better today. It's an adjustment and I'm old enough to know it. It is hard to describe without attaching apron strings, but I really enjoy being around my son. He will be a great ambassador for this country and, hopefully, help get rid of some of the animosity that other countries have of us.

Evening girlies! Today was another crazy busy day at the salon!!! I am so thankful for busy days, especially with the uncertainty of my hubby's job...still no news about the investors.
Thank you Mandi for the kind words, I do hope that my kids will remember all the things I did with them and for them! I feel very close to both of them and always love being a part of their activities.
Tomorrow is another busy day for me at work, but the weekend is slower...I never understand that!
I hate to hear that Luzma is leaving us, such a sweetie, she will be missed!
I do understand about using your cricut...I know that I don't always use mine, but I find now I use it more so that I can post here...lately though I have been too busy to upload anything!!!
I need to get some rest, going to bed! I don't have to be at work too early tomorrow so there will be time to catch up!

I just finished my recipe cards. While I was working on them, I suddenly thought of Michelle. I stopped and got on the computer - no sign of her. I know she was having internet problems and I hope that is all it is. If we don't hear from her tomorrow, lets check further into it.

Mandi - I'll take a $5.00 massage. When can you work me in?

Megan - I hope your weekend is relaxing. I don't understand why you are busier during the week. It looks like people would be off work and come in on Saturday. Oh well, thank goodness for your job.

My T.V. satelite is out right now because it is storming like crazy. Every kind of weather warning available is out now. Wind blowing hard, hailing, raining, thundering, lightening - gotta love Oklahoma weather. My husband works at the airport and said that he was worried about driving home - he gets off at 10:30 p.m. Flash floods are common in this area. Too much rain.

Megan - Are the fires under control now? I haven't heard much lately on the news. Is hubby able to spend some time at home now? Hope so.

I cleaned up my scrap room, the T.V. is out and now I am bored. I guess I will go to bed and read something. Good night everyone - pleasant dreams!!!

hi girls

Donna- thanks for asking. The fire is almost 100% contained, but the winds are supposed to kick up again tonight which could ruin all that and push the fire back towards homes again. Which in turn means- DH is working tonight and tomorrow night too. Tomorrow night will be day #13 in a row. *sigh* he is supposed to have friday off- before heading back to his regular shift on sat. - but we will see.

I woke this morning and only have a few post to catch up on! Thank goodness, it is not pages to read!!! I feel good! I always feel behind in the group but not today!
Michelle-where are you? Maybe you are playing a game of hide and seek and we are doing a bad job of seeking! LOL! Hope everything is ok, wish we had a number to call her.

Today is another busy one for me at work, my body is feeling fatigue...standing for long hours just about kills me, plus if I was a bit skinny my legs wouldn't hurt so much from holding up all the weight from my booty!!! For real! Of course all my other 2000 body parts ache too!
My dd is sick again, she was sick over spring break with a stomach thing and ever since then has continued to have issues...I am wondering if she got the same stomach infection that my son has...H pylori, the doctor did say that it can most of the time several people in the same family might get it. So I have to make her an appt to get checked, not fun for me!
I go into work late today, think I am going to catch up on my American Idol, I have not watched it this week...been too tired!
I will be back later!

Good morning everyone.

It is still raining. It has been raining for 18 hours straight - raining not sprinkling. My yard is standing in water. Lots of flooding and some parts of the main highway are closed due to standing water. My husband has to go 10 miles out of his way to get the work today. I guess I had better start building my ark!

Michelle, Michelle, come out where ever you are!!

Gigi - good luck on cleaning and laundry. I really need to do laundry today but I am going to the library and then home to do some scrapping. I am quite spoiled - tend to do what I want. Ha.Ha.Ha. Wishful thinking on my part. I will make an attempt to do laudry - Boo Hoo......

OK Michelle - we give up - where are you?

Barbara - How do you feel today? Is your son's sore mouth okay now?

How is Jory?

Not coming back on here until I do something constructive - like housework or laundry.

Jory is doing better. It's 2pm here and I haven't gotten a call from the nurse wanting pain meds for him so it's a good day. I'm at Chipotle lunching with a scrappy buddy. After we finish here we're going to M's because we've neglected it for the last couple of weeks. It missed us.

Here is one of the Autograph albums. I used Mickey Font for the hand and Plantian Schoolbook for the flower. This is the frist time I have cut chipboard with the E and I did it with multi cut feature and reg. blade. Beginning to wonder why I have the deep housing and blade.

Hi ladies! Been busy and trying to watch the Housewives reunion right now. They make me laugh!

I know Tammy said she would be busy, but i am worries about Michelle and her dh!

Gigi, love the new stuff!!

Julie, love the new avi!!!

Monica, I would get rest if I were you!

Ria, glad Jory is doing better!

Donna, hope you are doing better!

Jennie, must be nice getting scrappy stuff to play with even though it's for the scouts!

Okay, I am doing really well. Ds's mouth is feeling a little better and we have a doctor appt in the morning.

Okay, I'm back here. Michael's definitely missed Liz and me. You know you're in Michael's too much when not only do the employees greet you BY NAME, but they hunt you down in the store to give you Coupons for 25% off your entire purchase. Jeremy laughed at us and called us "pitiful."

I came home with a pack of Karen Foster holiday paper for $1. I didn't need any more Christmas paper, but it was worth it for the Halloween and fall paper. I also found the square Fragments I'd been looking for for weeks and got them, and a labelmaker of my own to label all my stuff and a pack of refills for said labelmaker. Jeremy's got a labelmaker, but the carts for it are $22. I picked up a handheld DYMO labeler and the refills are $7. Much easier on my wallet. So now everything in my scrappy corner is labeled.

And I rearranged my cubes again. I was tired of bending down to get to my paper, cs, and embelly-jars. I'll have to get some pics, it actually looks nicer the way I have it. I found somewhere else to store the majority of my scrapbooks so I have room for my Cricut carts.

Okay guys, I put a phone call into Michelle and it was just the answering machine. She is probably going to freak on how I got her phone number but it is the mindset of a genealogist. And since I know the place where she lives it helps also. I left a message and my phone number so she or Daniel can call me back. I will report as soon as I hear something.

PS. Her voice sounds so cute on the message machine.

On the other thread that I belong to we have a private message that is accessible to all the members that has our contact info. I have warned them that if they're gone for a week and didn't say anything I WILL call them. From concern not for nagging, I don't talk long I just like to know.

I think it is a good idea to at least get a mailing address from the people in your group just to help keep track of them, but phone number contacts is a good idea too.

Marlene I think it is wonderful that you were able meet some of the online friends irl...I would love to do that!!

I think that is a great idea. Is the other group on this board? Or we could all give our info to Barbara for her to keep if we don't have a thread like that here. In Michelle's case it was easy for me as I know the area where they live. We use to visit every summer. Other's might not be to easy.

We have a PM for the group, I don't know how to do that, but it works great when it's set up. If anyone doesn't want to give their info they don't have to. I'm in the phone book so I'm easy to find anyway.

Ria - that's one organized corner, does it always look like that? Mine is a mess right now.

Gigi - yes the other group is on this site. It's in my siggie. We've been together 1 1/2 years. 2 of the others live in Southern Michigan and another in Northern Ohio so it was really doable. I am surprised the California girls here haven't gotten together yet. This group is pretty spread out! Mandi is closest to me and Minnesota isn't really that close - prob. a 9 or 10 hour drive - in good weather

COF is for critiquing and it has really helped me to improve my craft. Other people will see things that you're too close to notice.

Of course, Megan is here in the same city as I am. Michelle is about 7 hours to the north but when I am up at my oldest daughter's it is only about an hour or so. Altered Whimsey is pretty close to that area also and was thinking about coming when I was up at Green Tangerines but she over slept and did not make it. One of these days that would be so fun as we can scrap for free at the LSS when they are not having a class.

One of these days I would love to join a critiquing group. I know it helps you grow and improve. Well, off to get ready for the day. A few errands and a Drs. appointment. I gave Michelle my cell phone number so I will keep it with me.

Morning girls!

I sure hope everything is OK with Michelle and her hubby! I think if a pm was started with just our members included we could put in our phone numbers and addys and only those people it was addressed to (us) would have access to it.

Jennie I got those carts free, too! I love free stuff!! LOL!!

Have a great day. I am going to get a lo done today if it kills me!! hehe!!

Good morning! Back from the doc. Ds is doing really well. They are just going to wait and see if it happens again before they do any testing.


I think a list with your addresses and phone numbers would be great!

Ria, love your organization.

I do hope Michelle is alright!

Okay, I need to get busy. I want to scrap tomorrow, so if I get everything done, I won't feel guilty!

Jennie, glad you finally got those carts. I really like the Printing 101.

Barbara, do you want to start a list? If so how do we go about it. Marlene we need help!! I am so glad your poor DS is doing better.

Julie, sending scrappy thoughts your way!!! Hope you get to scrap.

I am off for errands.

Marlene, it looks like that about half the time. The other half, the contents of the drawers are spread out on the table along with my Cricut and my Mac.

Ria - love your organized scrap space. I try really hard to get my done. I get it the way I want it but then I do a big project and it is trashed again. I just can't create unless everything I own is out within reach. Sometimes I can hardly get out of my chair - everything piled around me. My husband says it looks like I am building a nest!

Barbara - Let's do the address and phone list. I don't get out as much as I used to and I am so enjoying getting to know you guys. If something happened to me, I don't think my family would think to notify anyone online. This is the only site I visit regularly and I feel I am gettin to know everyone pretty well. I so want to come in July but don't know when I will be able to fly again. My arm (lymphadema) reacts to cabin pressure and can have bad effects. So, my wings have been clipped for a while. I will never give up the idea that we all can meet someday. It is something to look forward to.

Marlene - I loved the layout of your friends. My very best friends were made through scrapbooking. This hobby has such a positive effect on people. You were so lucky to have meet them.

Monica - Hope you have a lovely day. Be a couch potatoe, watch T.V. and eat chocolates!! Don't forget to lock the doors from the inside. HaHa

Gigi - you are so delightful. I always look forward to your messages.

Megan - hope you feel better today. You can't be sick the first night your hubby is home in days. "Honey, I have a headache" won't work today. Hope the boys take a long nap this afternoon.


Tammy and Michelle - OK we give up. Come out where ever you are!!!

It sunny today!! First day in 20 days. However, a front is moving in tonight and severe storms are predicted around 8-9 p.m. Damaging winds and hail AGAIN. My GD has a softball tournment starting tonight. She plays at 9:30p.m. tonight and 8:30a.m. tomorrow morning. I bet they get rained out. She hasn't played since the game where I threw out the first pitch - almost 3 weeks. They still practice at an inside facility but it is not the same as a real field.

I am really chatty today. Sorry - hope you're not bored with me. I'm going to put in a load of laundry and then scrap until the girls come home from school. Maybe take a short walk - gotta burn off this sudden spirt of energy - don't have it often! Have a great day and weekend - think of you guys often. Thanks for being there for me.

morning girls!!! I have a bit of a runny nose, but over all feel MUCH better today. I generally dont have allergies, but it got windy yesterday afternoon when we were out- Im wondering if I just had a reaction to something in the air? who knows...

I have been to panera bread for bagels with my gf and their kids this morning then we went to the park. DH is getting up in a few and we are going to head to the store...

My group on the cricut board actually has an email that has everyones screen name, addy, phone, blog, email, birthday, whatever on it. Theyre all alphabetized and everyone has the email so if you want to send a RAK or whatever you have the addy and if you need to check on someone, you have the phone number.

Checking in for a bit. Glad everyone seems to be feeling better. I so feel like taking a nap, but I want to get things done so I can scrap tomorrow.

Okay, as for the list, Just pm me your name, address, telephone number, and I thought we'd throw in your birthday too. Not the year, just the month and day. LOL! I will put it together and pm everyone a list. If you would like to include yur e-mail addy too, I'll put that on the list too!

Okay, back to work! But I so want a nap!

Hi ladies!!! I am alive and well I just got Gigi message, and I am sorry to have worried you all! I am glad you were able to get my number! I hope it wasnt hard to find it!

My computer crashed, I tried the new air card and it has been a disaster! Niether mine or Daniels computers will accept the new card, and WiFi for one day was $6.00. I tried leaving a post from my cell phone but for some reason, it wouldnt let me. I am finally home and happy to be here! I plugged Daniel's computer in and am happy to have internet again! I am going to go back and catch up right now!!!

I feel so loved right now!! I am so sorry again to worry you all like that!

Mandi - How is your mom doing? Have they figured anything out just yet??

Ria - Love the new Avi! That NSBD prize is awesome! I am jealous....and you organization is perfect! It looks great!

Gigi - I laughed so hard when I read the post about my voice sounding cute! I hate to hear my voice on the phone!! It is to squeaky to me...Daniel laughs cause he says that's how I always sound

Donna - I have a cricut print out and it says for iron on fabric to use the regular blade, set the speed at 3, Pressure at 4 high, blade depth at 5 and multi cut at 1. Hope that helps and that it isnt too late for ya!

Barbara - How are you doing after all that cleaning? I hope you havent been to sore. I am glad that DS's mouth is feeling better! I am sorry to see Luzma go, but like you said the rules are clear!

Hi Julie, Monica, Marlene, Tammy and Jennie!! I am really hoping I didnt miss anyone or anything....

I got four LO's and a card done, I will post in a bit. I need to find a new computer, and Ria will be happy that it is more than likely going to be a Mac. I will probably overwhelm you with questions on it though!

I was going to ask too, my NEW cutter just broke. It's a cutterpede...I bought it cause my other one lasted over 5 years. What cutter would you all recommend? I need one that will hold up being transported to and from the trailer!

yay michelle!!! Im so glad all is well and it really was just your computer

for cutters- I really like my MM cutter. If folds in half and magnets together. I have moved with it and taken it a couple lpaces and it has done well. Also- MM has the best customer service! If something happens- they send you a whole new cutter. Not just a replacement part.

That is the one I was thinking about getting. I was so mad when it broke. And of course it is always the arm that I need for measuring!!!

Good afternoon everyone,

Donna, you are so sweet and no we are not bored with you my dear friend. You so had me laughing at the "Not Tonight" to Megan

Megan glad you feel better!!! I am going with what Donna says.

Michelle, it was so great to talk to you!!!! How cool. I am so glad you both are fine.

She called on my home phone and I gave her my cell which had me puzzled until she told me she dialed caller ID.

Barbara, I will pm you my stuff tonight. Lets do our cell phones also.

Tammy where are you?????????????

Okay be back in a few hours.
A
