Initially had the Organ Donation discussion with my parents when I took Med Ethics as an undergrad. But I like to bring it up with my parents at least every year--so they know that I do feel strongly about my organs being donated if I was to die and my organs were viable. So I reminded my mom when I talked to her today that I am still an organ donor.

The surgeon admitted Ellie for IV fluids and observation. If the pain is the same they are gonna go looking in her tummy with a camera and take out her appendix.

I brought my computer so I'll be checking in if there are any questions about the challenges I posted earlier.



So sorry to hear that Bev! I hope everything will be okay!
I wanted to ask a few questions about the weekly then I am done so you can spend time with your DD. If I stitch on a ribbon to make a flower does that count? If I stitch on the same shape, flower, star, etc, but I have more than 1 or different shapes does that count as each 1 stitched embelles. Does that make sense?



Yes, If you stitch ribbon together that counts.

No, more than one shape on paper/felt only counts as one. Unless...you stack say a circle on one piece, then a star on a different piece and then stack them on top of each other - that would count as 2. Hope this helps.

Okay so If I stack like same shape on top of each other it counts as 1. but if I stack 2 or more different shapes that counts and individuals? But what if I do 10 circle, stitch on them, but do not stack them, do I count those as individuals? I hope I am getting that right. Sorry Bev. If you don't have time to get back to be I think I got it! Thanks and good luck at the hospital with your DD!

Each paper/material with stitching counts as one whether it's stacked or not.



They are taking out Ellie's appendix at 11:30 today.

Surgery is over and she did fine! They took out her appendix and also went in with a camera - she had several ovarian cysts and some had burst. We even have pictures of her insides. Weird.

I spent the night with her last night and her dad is going to stay tonight. Hopefully she'll get to come home in the morning.

thanks for the update bev! Those ovarian cysts can be EXTREMELY painful...especially when they burst. So sorry to hear she has them. I hope they do not recur often for her!

Yesterday was about Frustration and today is about Delight. Do a lo about what makes you smile/happy. Worth 150 points

I'll be running around like a chicken with my head cut off. I'm having a liasopohia jewelry party and the consultant lives almost 2 hours away so rescheduling would be a problem. My Monday cleaning and prep work was spent at the hospital with Ellie. Katie, who was off Monday was with us. Hubby is staying with her tonight and will bring her home in the morning, he took off but he'll be on Ellie duty. Crazy crazy crazy, I'm going to bed! I hardly got any sleep last night, but I got the whole bed to myself tonite!!!!!

Glad things are going good Bev! Hope she gets to come home tmw morning! I know how you dont get much sleep in the hospital. When Westin was in the hospital me and DH took turns sleeping at the hospital so one of us could get a good nights sleep. Crazy to think that was over a year ago! I cannot believe it! My little man has come a long way since then

I feel like I am about to scream right now. I am in search for a new camera and have no idea what I want. I thought I wanted SLR, but those are so expensive and big and I don't know how to use them. But I want something better than my small point and shoot camera. Any suggestions?

Jade ~ Haha I'm in the opposite market Jade. Looking for a small point and shoot camera that fits in my pocket. I love my canon but sometimes its just too big!

Bev ~ I know I'm a little late but I'm glad everything went well, and I hope it continues to go well!

Sorry I haven't been around much. I've been fighting off some sort of sickness...two of my coworkers came to work sick all last week. Plus work has been crazy. We let go of the other girl that works with me so I have double duty for a bit. Luckily they hired someone else almost immediately, but there is always that training period! So in other words...I'm pooped! Is it Friday yet?

I LOVE my Nikon D70s. I do point and shoot with it right now since I don't have Photoshop to edit and do cool things with my photos, but the principles are simple and all you need to do is look at one of many, many tutorials on SLRs, there are many for Nikon D70s's alone. It is worth the investment. But then again I had to get mine for school so if it weren't for that I wouldn't have one. So glad I do though!

This is for all you flower lovers. Use flowers on your lo for 125 points. Flowers on pattern paper count as well as stickers and dimensional flowers.

The party is over and I have a clean house. That's why I like having home parties! Ellie had a good night and the pain she's been having is from air bubbles. Since we had a house full of people she got some visitors so it motivated her to get up and walk around the house. Pluse it was good for all our buddies to give her a little love.

Mel how do you sew so that it looks seamlessly? Mine look like - - - dashes and your look like ----- with no spaces in between each stitch.

I backstitch, which is using all of the holes twice, basically. What you are probably doing is a running stitch, which uses each hole once.

Here's a site that demonstrates how to do it.

okay, now I would love to learn how to make your sketches... I have a lo I did with a sketch on paper that I created, but have no idea how to make the sketch look like the one's on sb.com... I am not exactly a computer genius, so be nice on directions!

My tip is to STAY ORGANIZED. It sounds obvious but as scrappers we tend to lose track of stuff when we get going on a LO or project. It just gets strewn around and then we spend minutes looking for something (I always lose my scissors only to find them in my lap). Put stuff back where it belongs after using it and you won't lose things

My tip is to pre-print all the pictures you want to scrap. Last time I printed pictures, I printed like 100 picts and about 6 months out. That way no matter what I feel like working on, all my picts are ready to go. Then if I need something like a black and white, or a different size, I still have the pict for the template, then I can print it in an hour at Target. It makes it nice to get more then one layout done in a weekend!

I totally agree with staying organized but what really helps me save time is using sketches or scraplifting! Like Kelly I preprint all my pics and then grab my sketch binder and photo album and just flip through and grab pics that go with each sketch! Then I crop if needed and file the index card of the sketch and all pics in a recipe card box. then when I have a spare minute to scrap I just go to the file and grab a sketch with a set of pics and I'm ready to go! If I don't have time to scrap I sometimes take it a step further and find papers/embellies and then put those in zip lock bags with the pics and the sketch to make kits for later!

My scrapping tip: ALWAYS have a journal/planner/notebook with you to write down your thoughts/ideas/quotes/mem ories. I LOVE to journal on my pages (in case you couldn't tell!) and it is nice to be able to go back through my planner or my journal and see what I was doing or thinking on a certain day! PLUS if I find inspiration in something I always have a place to write it down so I will not forget it or lose it! Like sometimes I will hear a song playing over the loud speaker in a store that I do not know, but that has a great lyric, so I write down the lyric to look up later. OR I will hear my niece or nephew say something absolutely hilarious that I want to use as a title or journaling on a page, I will write that down. Or if I am just having a bad day and I need to vent--I can do that. Or if something AMAZING happens, I have a place to record all of these things! My newest endeavor in the journaling genre is a dream/nightmare journal--I have THE WEIRDEST dreams and nightmares and I have been told that by writing them down I can change how they play out so they are not so terrifying. Now I just need to be able to remember them! GOOD LUCK getting those journals started!

Love all your tips!!!!

My time saving tip is to use my cricut to precut letters in black and store them in a divided bin. I used Don Juan to cut my letters a smidge bigger than 1 1/4". Thickers are wonderful and fast but I need more K's, A's, E's and I's than thickers provide. When I set up the gypsy, I just cut a lot more of those letters. When I need to cut more I only have to pull up that file and cut.

My time saving tip is to clean as you go. It's easy to let stuff get piled up on your table and then it becomes more difficult to find things as they get buried. So, when you're done using something, put it away. After you're done with your pages, put your used paper immediately into your scrap bin and your unused paper back where you store it. At the end of a scrap session, take another 5 minutes to tidy a spot that might have gotten in disarray because of you rifling through it.

10/17 Daily 150 + 10
I know its already been said, but I find my biggest tip to saving time scrapping is to stay organized and clean. That way you always know where everything is right when you need it. When your done using something, put it back where it belongs so its there for the next time!

My time saving tip is to journal when the day is fresh on your mind. Journal at the end of the day about what you did, how you felt, what is going on so when you go to scrap that day or pics from that day or how you felt it is right there. Because after a few months go by you may forget some details about that day that you wanted to scrap! Since I started getting so far behind I started a blog to get track of everything. I want to scrap more than just a photo. I want the feeling of the day and what not to show through as well.

My tip is...scrap with friends to help keep you motivated. 8 monthes after my move and I am still without a scrap friend here. I used to love Sunday afternoons when the girls and I would get together and scrap, eat brownies and laugh. Good times.
