Hi ladies!

I'm feeling much better, but I'm still pretty congested. I'm just happy to be breathing through my nose, even if it's not that great lol

Hi everyone- I've been MIA & I'm sorry. The end of December was a roller coaster. Then on Tuesday- 3 Jan we enrolled my mom into the hospice program per recommendation of her neurologist. She has Alzheimer's and Parkinson's and the medication to help with pain and muscle spasms is no longer working very well. She has suffered enough. Unfortunately being an only child & having a father who refuses to be involved in those details, the decision was up to me. Although I thought I was prepared for it- it still was not easy. Thankfully I have a wonderful DH who is an amazing supporting man to help me thru this.

I still intend to participate in this swap. I've worked on my wish list & everything. I will shout if things get too much since I have no idea how this will go with my mom. No one really does I imagine. But I think I'll be okay coordinating everything.

Ladies, I looked at a house today and I must say I am in love! They converted the 2 car garage into a family room that would be my...guess what...SCRAPROOM - I love love love it!!! Trying not to get too excited but OMG it even has a sink a little counter and nice cabinets in it...it's large too - I could have several people over and everyone have plenty of space! The rest of the house is really cool too - all except a tiny kitchen but I'd be living in the scraproom anyway! Even has a shed out back for the hubby! LOL OH I am dreaaaammmmmin now!!!

You need to stop over one day next week (maybe for lunch?) and have a look. I have a 2 car garage conversion as my scrap room.
I love all the space.

What area is the house in?

Is it bad, then when shopping for my buddy today, I had to buy something that I am not even sure WHAT IT IS. It is made by a major scrappy company, and It was intriguing. I am now, sitting here, staring at it, AND I STILL DON:T KNOW WHAT IT IS. But It is OK.. I bought 2.. one for my buddy and one for me.

Ok I have to ask it Shelly Ann and Desi are you related? I look at your photos and you look so much alike. I got confused and thought one of you had changed your photo but the old one was still up. Duh look at the names and I figured out it was two different people living in different states.

Well ladies I am in a bit of a pickel. Did everyone make a long wish list? I thought we needed to so our partner would have plenty to choose from. If you haven't could you please up date soon. When we order it takes a while to get the order then we have to wrap it and resend it. Please help out by making sure you have a good wish list.


Thanks to you all!

I have glass in front. Our house was a model, so we kept the glass doors in front.

That looks cute! and close to your sons school.

Come on people... get cracking with those wishlists! Toni wants to get her order in, so get a moving!

OK... (And I went and checked mine, and wow.. I got a bunch of stuff on there, so I know it is not me LOL)

FWIW, this item (the unknown what to do with thing) is NOT on my partners wishlist, but she is getting one too, cause I want to know what to do with it LOL. I figure, she is getting 12 days of wishlist stuff, then bonus things that either I needed an excuse to order one for me too... or in this case, something that just made be go HUH in the middle of the store.

Maybe I should google it?

I would like to know what that strange item is as well. I keep thinking about it and keep coming up with nothing. Guess I will be here all day just looking in the store again to try to find it What could it be. Moonpuff you will have to let us know when the swap is over! I love to read your posts Moonpuff. I was in here laughing and my husband had to come see what I was laughing at. Thanks for the word on the wishlists. I wanted to already have placed my order but undecided what to do. Guess I will place it this eveing and then hit HL and JA up for the other 5 items needed to complete the 12. I just don't like waiting till the last minute to do something. Let me get it done and over with. Although I do go shopping everyday just not for scrap stuff. You see I have 18 grandchildren and 2 great grands so I have birthdays every month and some have more than 1. But 2 live with me and I am alway looking for a good deal. I have to start Christmas shopping now in order to keep up. Aw ho is kidding I just love to shop!!!!!!!!! That should have been my middle name. HaHaHa. I don't like to shop on line for much though I like to see and touch what I buy.

Moonpuff keep posting!!!!

What is something scrappy you want to try but haven't yet. This can be anything from making a mini album to creating paper flowers to binding your own books...really ANYTHING!

Bon...I got addicted to those when I first started!

I want to try the alchol inks on transparency! I saw one on youtube and it looked GREAT! I have a pack of inks, but haven't tried yet. I think the ones I saw were metallic. I'm not sure which I have.

Hmmmmmm... I would have to say actually USE something I have bought. I watch something on you tube and write what I need to make it, get the stuff and put it in a draw. Lather.. rinse ... repeat.

So, I have draws of stuff, and no clue why I bought it, and what I was going to do with it either.

I think I want to try making stick pins. I keep seeing them on layouts and projects lately and they're kind of cute.

I didn't get any scrapping done this weekend. I was trying to finish a pair of jammie pants I was making for my hubby and my sewing machine is being non-cooperative. The thread keeps getting stuck in the bottom with the bobbin and it makes a big knot on the back of the fabric I'm trying to sew. I'm not sure what's going wrong. My Grammer gave me the sewing machine, it's a little portable one, but she didn't have the directions anymore. I might try to find some online. It's set up a little differently than my old one so I may be doing something wrong. It's just annoying because it was working fine all afternoon and then, all of a sudden it started acting up. Anywho, sorry for the rant lol.

Did you use old cards to make your paper? Did it take long to dry?

Did you use it for cards or scrapping?

Yeppie I got my first order from Scrapbook.com today!!! So exciting for me!!!!!

I used lots of different scraps to make my paper. I blended them up in a non-food use blender!

YES..took longer than I ever thought to dry. I figured it would dry faster.

I used it to make Christmas cards about 3 years ago. I loved they way they turned out!

I dyed mine, so not sure about using that for scrapping.

I was afaid of it taking to long to dry I can't have a lot of screens laying around my my 2 year old grand here everyday. You blink and she is gone. She wrote on my walls today with a pen PaPa left on his night stand.

I bought a cheap blender to use only for the paper making.

Got glitter and dried flowers to go in the paper as well.

I am determined to make some for my xmas cards this year.


OK Bon I have to ask what is a toilet paper album? I have never hear of that before! I save the rolls to make candy poppers for party favors.

OH NO!! Papa better watch out. My nephew is 2 so I know what you mean. and PAPA let's him get away with EVERYTHING!

Me too...my cheap blender. I can't remember exactly HOW long it took...but I know it was WAAAYYYY longer that I hadplanned for. Luckily at the time I lived in a house with a garage. So, I just had them drying in there. OOOHHH!! Glitter will be nice.

Papa is a sucker when it comes to the girls they just walk all over him! The grand daughter we are raising gets away with murder with him. All she has to do is look and he jump! Please lord don't let that child frown when PaPa is home. His own daughter is so jealous of her. And she is 36 years old.

http://www.hidengoscrap.blogspot.com/2011_07_01_archive...

I loved it but sent it in for a swap and never heard from the recipient! LOL My sister still says see i told you that you shouldn't have mailed it to someone you don't know! LOL Geesh i do miss it though.

I want a zutter bind it all to bind my own mini's...I also want to try sewing on things, I am so not a sewer at all so it'll be a hard one to do! LOL There are so many things I wanna do - I'd love to be good at quilling like one of my friends, she can quill anything!!!

I really want to work on mini albums and altering things (picture frames, boxes, etc.) I am kind of like moonpuff in that I buy things because I want to try them out for a project and then I never do it....hoping to change that this year though.


very pretty TP album Susie...I hope that whomever has it is enjoying it

All I can say is WOW. That is just amazing to be able to transform tp rolls. You need to do a video tutorial on how to make those. I would love to try! How many rolls do you need to save? Is there a special type? I do know some TP rolls are white and thicker paper and some are kraft and very thin.

Hi Friends...LONG DAY...Just now checking in!!! Susie is ABSOLUTELY right on with her example of the "Toilet Paper Album"!!!! Isn't it BEAUTIFUL???

The white toilet paper rolls are pretty flimsy and I don't save those ones. But I have been saving the brown ones since November!! You can use as many toilet paper rolls as you wish only the more you use the bulkier it will be. I love them because you can put tags in them where the openings are and do so much!!! Perfect little mini album!!!!

Susie...Your Album is GORGEOUS...I think I'm with your Mom and Sis on that one....ESPECIALLY the fact that you didn't know your partner...It's not the same as maybe ME...if you know what I mean lol

I can hardly wait to get home and look at that tp album Susie - can't view blogs at work- government thing LOL. They don't want us "socializing" yet we have FB & they don't know about scrapbooking haha.

Hope everyone is having a great week. I am still working on cleaning up my work area downstairs- have some things already for my partners- just need to figure what else is needed & then order what's missing.... so exciting.

MoonPuff and Chris really am sorry about your headaches. Sound like you are both teachers. So if you are I just want to say I appricate the fact you have dedicated yourselves to the children of our future! I have been volunteering at my grands school and see what the teachers have to go through with the students and parents. So many of them do not take an interest in the future of their children. Sometimes I have to walk outside and take a breath at the way some students behave. So once again Thank You!

I still am hunting a video on how to make a TP mini Album. Now I need a book for how to make a mini album with TP rolls. Anyone know where I can find it? Susie I am a dummy on how to make albums I need from start to finish. How to cut the rolls?

I am so NOT a teacher
I am actually a psychiatric social worker

I don't have the patience to be a teacher.... just this school year, my 11 yr old has a very disorganized teacher. They were told on Monday that the science fair projects are coming up. They need a ton of it done by friday. Why not tell them before break? so we could have thought about it then?

It is a very "last minute" type of school year, and I am all about planning and being organized, and it is driving me CRAZY.

wow Moon! I couldn't handle that either.

How do you like being a psychiatric social worker? I'd love to make a career change. I've always wanted to do something more serving to the community, but That would mean going back to school.

I really need to do it!!

I love my field.. I am a people person, so it fits me well.

Now, I no longer work full time. I went "consultant" years ago and love that even more. I have quite a bit of forensic experience, so that has benefited me dramatically.

I used to do community based social work, with a full case load of clients. That was not conducive to my family life, and this opportunity popped up, and I was at a point where I no longer wanted to be invited to other planets, etc on a daily basis

I never considered myself much of a people person until I started to work at home. Now...I am much more of a people person than ever.

I don't have a family. It's just me. So...I got time for whatever really.

I am a special education teacher for 5-8th grade and work with Behavior Disorder K-4 also.

I am also working on my Doctorate so I can go back into administration when I decide to. I spent 8 years as an administrator in the private sector and loved it.. but couldn't keep up with the workload with 6 kids at home. So now I think I'm ready to try it again with just 2 kids and 2 grandkids at home.

Chris you must have a lot of patience! God Bless you! You sound like me raising 2 of my grands but watch my daughter 6 children while she works some days I just :rant:.

Moonpuff all I can say is wow! I would not like visiting other plants either. This is why you have such a good sence of humor. I alway look for your posts so I can
It picks my day up!

Shelly Ann you are never alone. There is always some one with you. And then you have us here. By the way looked at your Gallery you have some pretty nice work there. I need to get up to speed with you ladies.

Ok my shopping is done now just have to figure out how to wrap some of the stuff. Can we play a joke? Oh need to find a box big enough or will have to use 2 boxes? Can we go ahead and mail out the boxes now?

Watched U tube till 3:00am this morning to learn how to make TP mini albums. I have decided to make my 2nd year Daisy girls a mini for the move into Brownies. It does not look to hard but we shall see.

aww...Thanks Toni! I do need to be reminded of that sometimes. Just meant I'm single, no kids, no man...lol. AND I work at home. Not a lot of human interaction for me!

Thanks for browsing my gallery and don't get addicted to that youtube! I sure did when I started making minis. I have been on a mini roll and I haven't done a 12X12 layout in a long long time.

Moonpuffs posts give me laughs too!

I am glad to amuse both Toni and Shelly

Life it too short not to have fun

I got a ship notice on my partners gifts (well, a bunch of them). I am excited, cause I ordered stuff for me too LOL.

I played Enron here today...... paid bills and then shredded tons of old paperwork. Waiting for hubby to come home now, and then I will shower and maybe play in my scrappy room tonight.


What is everyone else up to?

I'm making dinner!!! I really just want to QUIT!!!! Who says that it has to be the lady of the family who is in charge of dinner, dishes and dirty laundry...I am so sick of the "3 D's"!!!!

I am still working on some bookmarks...but think I am going to work on some origami flowers tonight after all my chores are done that is!!!

I still have to catch up on the convo that I have missed here. I have caught bits and pieces! I am among some pretty special ladies in this swap. I am a pediatric oncology nurse, who just earned my masters in social work and am working on my doctorate. I have worked in my community for the last 20 years. I loved my work and wouldn't have traded it for anything in the world. Then I was diagnosed with cancer, and I became very isolated here at home. That is why I joined SB.com! Now I guess you all know a little about me, and why I count you ladies very special in the work that you do!!!

Well...I guess it's time to get dinner on the table...my Boo just walked through the door. Promise to catch up later...
