______________________

HOW IT WORKS:

A new Member of the Month will be drawn randomly each month.

To have your name entered into the drawing, simply send a package of goodies (no price limit) to the current Member of the Month based on the information that has been provided(see current MOTM info above).

If your name is not chosen for next month, don't worry; your name will stay in the drawing as long as you send a package to the current Member of the Month. Entries are cumulative. (For example: if you have sent packages to the current MOTM’s for 3 months in a row and haven’t been selected yet you have 3 entries.)

If you do not send goodies to the current Member of the Month for 2 consecutive months your name will be removed from the drawing and your number of entries reset to zero. But no worries, because you may re-enter at any time by sending a package to the current Member of the Month.

If selected as Member of the Month your number of entries into the drawing is reset to zero and you are ineligible to win for the next 2 months.

Even though you are not eligible to win for 2 months, you are still encouraged to send goodies to the current Members of the Month because on the third month, when you are eligible again, the number of entries you have will be determined by the number of packages you have sent (up to 2).

______________________

RULES:

• As Member of the Month you must post when you receive packages and keep a current list of people who have sent in for the month.

• On the last day of the month the current MOTM will randomly select a winner for next month!

• Your package must include goodies that the MOTM can use based on the information provided. For example: If the MOTM states that she only has teenage boys please do not send pink baby ribbon.

I am here.
Ladies I will be sending you all a msg this week. I am so tired from our 1st Annual Women's Conference hosted by our Women's Ministry at church which I am co-director for this year, new year starts in September.
It was a HUGE success, but I am now tired. The director and I decided today that we want a king size bedroom suite delivered to the church and make one room a bedroom for us - lol. We were at church Wed, Thurs, Fri nights, all day Saturday and most of the day Sunday. We already have a shower and kitchen so all we need is a bed. lol

I had a lazy weekend, wish I'd have scrapped more but I can't force it when the creativity is not flowing. I was so sad to finish my letters for the LOTW swap I think it just made my brain not want to switch gears yet!

HAPPY MONDAY!!!!!!

I bought a few little things today. I probably should have checked your wish list before I went, but hadn't planned on shopping. I needed some glue and had a 50% off coupon, then saw a couple little items I bought for your package. I just remembered you're a soccer mom and you had two girls! By any chance, do you like clowns?

I am sure what you got will be fine and I can find use for the clowns, I have gotten pictures of the girls with clowns before at the fair and parades

You can all check that msg, but I was pretty much catching up with you all and saying I was in the process of stuff envies as I spoke.

Ok I think i have it finally done and figured out, I have July, Aug, Sept, and Oct envies ready to go.

So for the last few monthly winners you will get surprise happy mail soon again.

I feel bad for being so many months behind. But better late than never.

I hope to get these put in the mail tomorrow. I have them in a bag to ail but don't think I will get to the post office yet today. I have to get going to work in a few minutes, and going to our po is like an hour ordeal every time I go.

I even got a great pkg ready for next month hoping that the person will like it, color wise and such. If not then I will save it for another time.

Although I have been late before and didn't have job then either, gosh it never fails there is just not enough time not he day, no matter how hard you try.

Oh I don't count on winning ever. I don't send out the envies just to win either so it doesn't bother me.

I still don't know what I would ask for quite yet, even I was drawn, sad huh?

But I don't like to commit to something and not do it either, I will do whatever it takes usually to get it done even if late.

It wasn't just you guys I have been late on this last two months or so either. I am in birthday club where we send out bday cards to many people each month. And I a. Late on that to. I can't even remember if I sent out sept or not. I think I didn't. But I am goig to work on thoe tonight or tomorrow morning. Hopefully I could see about getting them done and put with the envies st the post office.

hello, just to let you know, i havent yet made it to the post office yet. maybe once i finish cooking my ingredients for my soup for dinner. I might be able to run over there and try to get these all out.

Turns out my mother in law is coming today. My husband only told me yesterday at noon. I have been running around like a chicken with my head cut of trying to get my house clean. He has been telling us for almost two months that she is coming soon. But he never knew exactly when. If I would of known she was coming today I would of spent the last few mornings up early getting ready.

Definety have to have some food made for everyone before I go off to work today though.

I am barely starting to catch up on house work and some errands and things I want to get done. Now I am going to get behind even more.

We have been having insulation put in our garage and painted the walls. Had to take everything out of the garage to do so. Now it is all in our backyard. Most of it covered up with plastic, but of course I just seen the thing Iw as worried about not covered up. And it rained all day yesterday.


I need more hours in the day.

I hope everythign goes just fine with your hubby who is having outpatient surgery today!

I sent mine out this morning.

Susie, what kind of surgery? I'm sorry I missed that post. I've been so busy with my other swaps I barely can keep up with all the chatter every! It's supposed to be a rainy weekend so I'm hoping to do some scrapbooking. I have several lo's I need to work on for various challenges. Thank goodness for the challenges or I wouldn't get any of them done!

He had an umbilical hernia repaired. It went really well and he is healing great so far but in a lot of pain! Don't worry about missing the post I know everyone's busy!! I just ramble usually! LOL I still have a small album to do for a friend that is of her baby shower that was MONTHS ago!! I am afraid of challenges, I think because I tried the anything goes challenge when I first started swapping on here and failed miserably at it - it was just too much to keep up with.

Gooooood Morning Ladies,

Looks like Jen has had a busy week we haven't seen her here since Monday!

What's everyone doing this weekend? My original plans got canceled and now I will be Nurse Susie - taking care of hubby. Hopefully he feels better soon though, still in a lot of pain!

I am sorry I haven't checked in my daughter has been sick and it has been one thing after another with her 1st it started with migraines then she ended up with strep throat then she ended up with a rash they thought she was having a allergic reaction to the penicillan (she has never had antibotics before she don't get sick often she is gonna be 15 and has only ever had colds a few times and the flu 1 time that I recall) well it keeps getting worse the rash won't go away with the steriods they put her on and benedryl all she does is itch so they have been running alot of test on her and made me switch laundry soaps and she isn't allowed to have anything new to eat or drink no new soaps perfumes etc. until they figure it out, I have spent 4 days in the last week in the dr's office having different dr's looking at her so by the time I got off work @ 3:30 ran her to the dr's and got out po was closed I took today off work cuz they wanted her back there 1st thing this morning hoping to have some test results back and have answers I haven't had time to do much at all the last 2 weeks with her and she acts like a little kid when she is sick wants to be babied probably cuz she isn't use to it I guess

and susie I am right there with you we had plans to go camping this weekend but depends on what they say today if we still go, we had plans last weekend to go but the dr. said she would be ok to go since it was gonna be a nice weekend and we have a camper with a heater so we will see if she says it is ok for her to go this weekend

Jen ~ so sorry to hear you and your daughter is going through all of that. I hope they figure it out and she starts to feel better soon. If you get to go camping.....try to relax some.

Susie ~ My plans for this weekend is to crop all weekend. Starting tonight when I get off work, all day tomorrow and most of the day sunday. I will throw in a movie or two while I am doing that. I'm attending an online crop so we will see how this will go. It will be the first time doing that.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Ouch... your poor daughter.

I have a son with food allergies, so I can relate a bit.
I hope you get some answers soon.

My w/e plans are Judgement House practice Sat morning, then Bug and I are going shopping after we finish - she has birthday money. You know some of her stores is right near scrapbooking stores. We shop very good together. I drop her off in front of her stores and I go to the scrap stores. She calls when she is finished. That is the best part of shopping at The Avenue.
Sunday morning is early service then a bunch of us are going over the mountain to Chatt for dinner at B's - it is so goooooood.
Sunday afternoon is building Heaven and Hell at church for JH.
I guess the only scrapping I will get in will be at nights.

I knew something was going on - you're usually around!

Hope you are able to get caught up soon! And hope you poor daughter gets better soon! They need to big figuring that out!! But how awesome that she's never been on antibiotics - that's really a miracle!!!

Hubby is doing better today, still sore but has been able to cut back dramatically on the painpills...which is good! We did also find out all his references have been called so it's looking really good for him and this job!!! Hopefully will hear something next week, I am not looking forward to payday next week since his unemployment stopped...I just can't pay everything that needs to be paid!

Glad to hear your husband is doing well after his surgery.

I did not make it to the post office yet. I am hoping to be up early enough to go tomorrow morning. I have four flat rate small boxes I am mailing too. The worst part is I could just go ahead and print the labels for them online and pay for them to get them out. But I dont have enough postage to pay for these four envies, so I have to go over there to mail them.

I havent been in any swaps for quite a while and havent stocked up on postage in even longer. NOrmally I have tons of stamps on hand to be able to make the postage amount on any envie i need to mail. I just weigh it on my scale and then pop the postage on and drop in box if not too big.

I have to take the RV to get the lights fixed tomorrow morning, so hopefully the post office will be open or still open by the time I have to take it in. I am waiting to hear back from the repair guy tonight still on what time he wants it there.

Who knows maybe I can pick up some reg stamps at sams club if all else fails and just throw enough of them on the envies to get them in the mail. I dont want to sit looking at them in this bag forever.

Goodness you wouldnt think it would be so hard to get to the post office. I hate that week days can get so busy.

Amy -

I hate going to the post office.
I print postage at home using paypal.
There is a direct link, that you use, and log in, and type the address, and it bills your paypal account and prints out, and I stick it on and mail it.

I have also been known to order stamps from usps.com
They charge $1 for priority mail delivery. I use that to stock up, and totally avoid the post office.

I'm lucky, the post office is just up the road from me and I'm learning when they're quiet times are! They say the postal service is going broke due to email, but there are always lines of people sending out packages.

Jen, I have a question: You say you have a cuttlebug you haven't used, could you use or would you like the Typewriter alphabet? Here's a link so you can take a look!

http://www.creativexpress.com/products/Typewriter-A lpha...

Just let me know, I have it and would love to send it if you can use it.



I use my cuttlebug all the time I love it, it was the I-rock that I haven't used but since have used it and love that too, I do not have that die and I would use it, I usually use my cricut when I make letters but that would give me more options

Great Jen! Thanks for updating the packages you've received, sounds like you're having a great scrappy happy mail month so far. So glad you got to go camping and your daughter's doing better. All of us, me my hubby and son are all allergic to penicillin - nasty stuff when you have an allergy. I will get your package ready but won't be able to mail until the end of the week (sorry - broke at the moment).

I'm glad you liked that handmade lo. I got that in a swap and I liked it, but the colors reminded me of soccer! I wanted to keep the clown kit, I thought it was so cute! My daughter is afraid of clowns!

I'm going to have to bow out of this swap. I have to watch my spending. And with the holidays and winter heating bills coming up, I really need to be tight with my spending. I just filed for SS disability and who knows how long that will take.

It's been fun and I enjoyed the month I was MOTM and I loved shopping for everyone. When it was my turn, I got several things of embossing and TH ink pads, neither of which I ever had. I'm still trying to perfect my embossing skills and inking skills.

Take care everyone! I'm still involved in a couple of other swaps and challenges so I'm still active here on SB.com!!

Actually the post office is going broke because Congress voted in 2006 for the postal service to give its pensions in excess of $5B back to the government to do with what they want. The postal service is the only government entity that pays for itself - it doesn't take any money that they don't earn through shipping and postage. You can google it "2006 post office congressional vote" - now Congress should vote to give them back their $$ and they wouldn't be in this predicament.

I've always been told it's not governmental??? OK so I had to Google and it states that it is an independent agency of the government BUT something I never knew is that it is authorized by the Constitution!!! As bad as I hate to see people lose their jobs I have to say maybe they need to go back to having like one post office in a town maybe 2 if it's a huge town and then start turning revenue again! I hope they survive...I don't really consider UPS and FedEx competitors because of price!

I have not run the numbers lately... but last time I did, 5 lbs was the switch over point. Once a package hit the 5lb point, it was cheaper by fed ex and UPS than the post office.

Stamps are going up a penny in January, and first class packages as well.
