Ok ladies I went to a StampScrapArtTour...spent $100+...I was there 4 hours...check out my gallery for the 3 cards I made while there...my girlfriend spent more than me & she hasn't really started making cards yet...we had a blast....if I had more money I would have spent it but I limited myself to $100...this is the 1st time I went to one of these crazy addicting shows....
I will get all my stuff together later & post a picture...opened alot already...I learned how to make shaker cards how easy...for the snow the lady used tide detergent & put glitter in the tide no static cling them looks great & works great & this way you don't have to waste all that glitter
hello everyone, just needed to pop in and let you all know i am still here. shopping tommorow for my sister so i can get it outt. since they are going to set me up at the hospital to drain the fluid off of my stomach and sid.
been in so much pain and sick to my stomach all the time. going to take a nap now, but i love my ssp. and she will be spoiled.
god bless you all. love and hugs, joan
Good morning, ladies. This is my first post, but I just wanted to poke my head in. I picked up a lot of cute things for my pal yesterday. I plan to finalize this weekend. I'm very excited for my first swap!
Good morning everyone. I don;t seem to have the energy to shop. I now am with 18 3 year old kids. Ofcourse I have another teacher with me, but sometimes we feel so lost because of the behavioral issues with a few.
Ah...I hope to sop this weekend for my pal.
I went to HL today, too. Luckily, I went on my lunch hour, so I didn't go too crazy. I hate being crunched for time when there are good sales. I'll probably end up back there after work tomorrow to finish up.
Hello Ladies, My daughter has been here since last Saturday, however she left today. So I am kind of down. While she was here I didn't get on the computer much. I hate that she has moved so far away :(
Pam ~ what is "StampScrapArtTour" ? I have never heard of it. I am assuming it is like a craft show or something like that. There is nothing here in the south.
I am getting all the things together that I got for my secret pal in the past few days. Now I have to find a box. Hope everyone is having a good week.

Cathy - I know HL had way to many things on sale....my girlfriend went nuts with me....
Pam- StampScrapArtTour was a big craft fair there where about 40 vendors from different places - 40 too many for me...now I wish I would have purchased a few extra things but oh well they have online sites....it was fun this iwas the 1st one I've been to..
Ladies its Labor Day Week-end so please be very careful & have fun...watch out for the other person....and I say this becuz my son in laws grandma was traumatized yesterday....3 yrs ago Aug 27 her only son died after being in the hosp 9 months in & out of a coma becuz he was on his motorcycle & was hit by a drunk driver....well yesterday as she was pulling into her driveway a crazy maniac was speeding on his motorcycle hit the side of her car & died immediately...please prayer for her she is the kindest person you would ever meet...
Oh Pam, that is so sad. I am so sorry to hear that! Everyone, be careful! Labour day is stressing me out this year because the day after that my oldest starts school. I am more nervous than he is!! Ahh!
I just updated my wish list with a few more things since I haven't done that in awhile. Maybe it will help my pal - I don't know!
Well my girlfriend came over yesterday & we made some more cards & today we are going to a card class....
Well the insurance company is still dickering us around...so I got a few estimates for them & they were not happy about $10k for my kitchen & $5k to get the whole house inside painted, another $1600 for the floor... you should see how they finally found someone to come in this week to give me an estimate...they are trying to match up my cupboards...yes thats right they are trying to give me partial replacement...that will bring down the value of my house when I go to sell it...would you buy a house who's cabinets may or may not match come on people...
Well I jsut got back from my card glass already posted the 4 new cards...and I am so proud of myself I didn't buy alot only $31...had a great time, my girlfriend is new to this & sepnt alot of money 14 copic markers etc...but she loved the class
I am not good at shading inside images & so I scared of buying the copic markers.
Btw my director brought in a craft sewing machine which is from Provo craft. She said no one was using it & since I was a scrapbooker I might know what to do with it. Has anyone used it, I know it has instructions & came with extra needles & bobbins but how do I use it? I am not a stitching person but would like to start with this one.
I bought 1 copic marker & 1 glitter lipstick pen & 2 stamps....can you believe that but I spent so much at HL the day before 50% off all wood mounted stamps bought about 6 there & stuff for my pal....it was an expensive week....then we went to Target to get a hot plate & toaster oven so we can cook....still no stove waiting for insurance company to give us a figure on what the damage is to my house from fire....
I was afraid of copics too but they are not as bad as you think...play around with them & you will enjoy them
I know about the Copic's. I started buying them last year. I have about 40 or so. They are expensive but they are good.
Would love to take a class on using them but, I live to far from places that offer classes on them.
Pam ~ LOVE your new cards from the card class. My favorite is the Trees, love the embossed paper too. Sorry, to hear about your son-in-law's grandmother that is so sad. Good Luck with the Insurance Company. I am having to deal with the car insurance co. that my daughter has trying to get them to pay for the the ER visit and the follow up with my doctor.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend and A safe Labor Day weekend. I am working tomorrow so I can comp. my time for a later day when I go see my father or my daughter. Stay Safe

Wow u gals are really fast. Let me admit to you, I have not started & will be a little slow this time round. So whoever has me, I will send your package before the due date but it may not be tooo early.....coz actually I am expecting my 2nd child due in March. I get tired way too early & after coming home, cooking & my son's homework is a little draining. I do plan to go on Friday & do some shopping.
Congrats ...I too will be sending out later then I wanted. Will post it after the 21. Normally I like to get it out by second week. I hate August begining of September and all the back to school supplies, shopping it eats up all my scrappy money
boy rusha do I understand how you are feeling! ......my DD is now a teacher but I still worried that her first day would be good! lol .....and I was very upset that we were on vacation and couldnt take pics!
