RULES/GUIDELINES:

1. In order to join this swap, you must have 1000 posts or be a sister with us already in good standing, or have another swap member that will vouch for you. If you don't have these things, contact Debbie or myself and we will decide. We want new people to sign up and have fun in our swap, but since this is a 25.00 minimum each month for three months, we have to make sure everyone who participates will complete the swap! Thank you for understanding!

2. This swap will officially begin on April 15 , 2012.

3. When sign-ups are closed (April 14),
Debbie and I will send each participant the name and information of your LITTLE sister sometimes on April 15

4. This swap has a MINIMUM of $25.00 each month. You are required to spend at least that amount EACH month on your swap partner for three months NOT INCLUDING SHIPPING COSTS! Please remember BEFORE joining that this swap requires THREE boxes to be shipped out to your one partner (one a month)

5. You would not put your name on the package/envie so you will remain a secret. It's a good idea to use a family members name as the return address, a trusted neighbor, or you can put your hubby to good use and use his name! You can also order directly from sb.com and tell them that the gift is for a secret sister swap and they will block out your name and information for you.

6. You can look up your partners profile to get some ideas of what to send. They have also been instructed to update their wish list.

7. You MUST check into this thread AT LEAST once a week as your real self and once a week as your alternate secret sister ID. Communication is vital in this swap because the purpose of this swap is to get to know your fellow swappers! You'll get more out of this swap the more you post, and your ss can get more ideas as to what to send you. I want all of us to have a wonderful time this round. Remember that everyone enjoys feeling spoiled and having someone in the swap make them feel special by leaving notes.

8. Secret sisters will end at the end of June...you should reveal who you are to your sister on that date here on this thread.

9. Never hesitate to pm Debbie or I if you have any questions, or need to know something specific from your SS.

10. Please mail your RAKS/gifts/cards out no later than: April 30, May 30, and June 30. Each package will always contain scrapbooking goodies but can also include other goodies as well!

11. Have fun, chat, share lo's, anything goes in this thread!

12. You must have at least 1000 posts in order to sign up. If you have fewer than that, Debbie and I will need to pre-approve you joining. If you have flaked on this swap or not followed the rules before, don't bother signing up.

13. To sign up, send me a PM with this information:
Screen Name
Name
Address
Email address
Phone number
Birthday
Do you collect anything?
Favorite snack
List of things you would like to receive (as an addition/alternative to things your wishlist which you will keep updated).

Thinking about joining in again. Would love it if there was more chatter this time around. I felt out of the loop without my little sister checking in and letting me know what she thought of the goodies I made her and sent her.

I am so sorry that happened to you Shana! I feel horrible about it! I am checking in to it and I know I already told you that you are being taken care of too! I know that doesn't make it right and I feel AWFUL that this happened to you! I promise you will be spoiled rotten this round, as you should be. Hope you'll drop in and give us one more chance! We'd love to have you!!!!!

It was much quieter this round Shana, but that isn't normally the case. In past rounds, if I took a day off from the computer I would come back to pages and pages of fun chatter

Debs - if we dont get blow by blow accounts of your days than I'm not joining after all! Its the highlight of my day!

Hey listen up everyone - the assessments my mum has been having at the hospital are indicating that she needs permanent long-term care. I CANNOT begin to tell you what a relief that is! We can have her over for weekends, or away for short breaks, once we find the right place, and I am hoping to find a place very close to home so that I can pop in regularly!

That is so good to hear. Just reading about what you have been going through for the last 3 months makes my head spin. Great to know you can get her placed and you dont need to worry about crazy phone calls all the time.

Shana have you met Janie a.k.a. "Charisma3103"?
She lives in Canada as well.. You could be neighbors and not even know it. I found out in the last swap that Mel lives in my back yard.

It's a small world!

This is a little different than the Valentine's one because it is for three months. And yes, each package should be at least 25.00 a month not including shipping. Your pal should receive three boxes, and you should as well (occasionally someone will ask their sisters if they can combine two months and make it one big gift but that is totally up to you) We also require you to make an alternate id for your sister and you have to check in once a week as yourself and also once a week as your alternate sister id.

Last round was not good in many ways. I hated that people weren't as talkative too! And I know how you felt totally Shana! There is nothing worse than making something, or buying something for someone and then having them not even acknowledge that they received it! I think that is so totally rude and inconsiderate! I know life is busy sometimes but to not even say a simple thank you...there is really no excuse for that! So Debbie and I are gonna be on you guys to post post post!!! It makes it fun for you and fun for your sister as well!

I am just so happy for your news about your mom Rachel! It was SO HARD on you to have all that going on and living so far away. I just can't even imagine the worry and the stress of wondering exactly what was going on at your mom's place (or worse, KNOWING what was going on and worrying about it all the time). I know this was a huge answer to prayer for you and I'm so thankful it worked out this way! Keep us posted on what goes on with her.

And I'm tickled pink that you are joining again. I was going to host without participating this round but when I saw you and Rebecca plus some new people to the swap, I just had to join in too! I know that I should be putting every dime towards our home remodel and some other things around here, but I think everyone deserves to have a guilty pleasure...and being in this group is mine!

Rachel- love the LO! The colors are fab! I see that you are from the UK. I was born in Ipswich and my mum was from a little village outside of Banbury in Oxfordshire. Actually going back in July to visit my family and do a mini European vacation! (fingers crossed) Haven't been back since I was 12 which was a LONG time ago, so I'm very excited to see all of my family over there.

So excited for this swap! Love meeting new people on here!! Off to get my cup of tea!!

shoot I was here yesterday and then already 2 more pages to catch up on.

Rachel - what a relief about your mom! must be a huge weight off your shoulders to know that her care will be properly addressed and you won't have to worry so much.

Fine pink, if my my participation doesn't encourage you to participate lol!

Jason's BIL's dad died yesterday. Jason's mom is flying up tomorrow to help take care of his nephew while all this stuff is going on.I'm a little unclear at the moment as to whether I'll be expected to go to anything. Jason would say no, but sometimes he's even more clueless than I about the social expectation stuff. With my last (and major) event at work tomorrow night, among other things, this just isn't a good time for me to take time off last minute.

Yes we are on a roll and I had so much fun yesterday. I just threw my drawer of scraps and misc. embellies out on the table and went to town!
I have a few more partially done:)

I too love reading about everything going on with everyone.
Rachel I am definitely happy for you and your mom. Finally she will properly be taken care of. Thankfully you won't have to worry so much and hopefully she'll be much more comfortable and happier because of it.

So I have started potty training my almost 2yo. He peed in his potty this morning. Pretty exciting stuff. Lol

Woot, woot! It makes me happy to see so many of my on-line friends joining!

Pink: Got to ask... What are you remodeling?

Rachel: Beautiful layout. I love the flower embellishing.

Tina: Sorry to hear about the death in your/Jason's family.


Well I need to put my big girl panties on this week The scrapbook convention is next month and I was scheduled to work the Ten Second Studio booth for about 3 hours a day. I was thrilled with this since every other year I get stuck in it all day. I got an email from them saying they want to renegotiate my hours! Well [email protected] I know what that means!!! So I need to practice saying "No"
between now and Thursday. It went from teaching two classes at convention to eight! They just kept selling out....

Trisha good luck with your big girl panties. Don't get suckered into teaching more than you want to.

Trisha, we are basically remodeling our entire home. We bought a very old big home a few years back. We have gutted the whole half of the downstairs to make one huge kitchen and the walls have been down to the studs for a LONG TIME now. We have another kitchen upstairs too but when we get the one downstairs done (this year!), it will turn in to our very big and private master bathroom. The house has an upstairs family room in our bedroom too so we use the upstairs now more than the downstairs because of all the mess of the remodel. Once the downstairs is complete, every room will get new walls, ceiling, electric and carpet and then our home will be what I want it to be! With the 7 kids, we needed a huge home and I didn't realize how much work would be involved in changing the things we wanted to change. The only room we have finished except for paint and floor is the studio, the most important one! LOL! We originally were going to have it be the formal dining room but I talked him into me keeping it for my own studio! He actually decided I could have it because "you have too much ******** to put anywhere else!" I know, he's just the most sensitive guy in the world! Hands off girls, he's all mine!

Trisha is so talented with her work too Jennifer! I have some of it irl hanging in my home and all I can say is that whenever I see it, it ALWAYS brings a smile to my face because it's just so beautiful!!!!!!

Well, ladies, the last time I looked at the clock last night it was after 5 AM and my wonderful little ones woke me up at 9 (they let me sleep in!!!) but I'm tired and they are napping so I think instead of cleaning, I will prefer sleeping today! Dan got home last night from his trip over the last 5 days (working in another town) so I was just over the top happy to have him back! The kids were as well (except for the two youngest girls who hated to leave my bed and sleep in their own! LOL!

Which reminds me, I wanted to ask you all what you thought about this. I work nights, as you all know. Well, when I am working the over-night, Dan will NOT sleep in our bed. He sleeps in the family room on a couch or in a chair. He says he cannot adjust to our big bed alone and feels like he needs to sleep in a more confined space. Now, me, if he isn't here, I move and move around in the king bed comfortably (until the little ones move in too) and have NO PROBLEM at all sleeping without him in bed. Do you think that's weird? Even when I go on vacation to visit friends and do scrapping retreats, our bed remains untouched until I come back. I thought maybe he just preferred the couch and slept with me when I was home just cause I was there. But he says that he just can't sleep without me spooning with him all night.

One more funny thing~ my 19 year old son came in the other day and was talking to all of us when I noticed his shirt. Evidentally he went into the laundry room at night and just grabbed a clean shirt...cause he was wearing a scrapping shirt that says "Scrappers are all acid free" I busted out laughing and screamed out, "YAY!!! I've finally converted one of them!!!"

Kimberly I think that is very sweet. My DH says he doesn't sleep well when I am gone at night, but I sleep so much better sprawled out when he is gone. He goes on his annual golfing trip next week and I am counting down the days:)

Banbury is only 37 miles from me! Very close indeed! Can you pop in when you're over here? It would be so much fun to meet someone else from the swap!

I love having an ocean of bed to myself - totally selfish! I love to find a cold bit if I'm hot and snuggle down, pulling the duvet all round me if I'm cold. Neil sleeps in so many different beds he could sleep on the floor and not really notice, but every time he gets into bed at home he does a big 'Aaah' cos its so comfy. I can confidently tell you that absolutely nothing would possess him to sleep anywhere other than the bed, whether I was here or not, and that goes for me too!

I am living in flipping TORNADO alley!

At last count we have had 4 touch down with in the last three hours "It has been bad"! I got home about 30 minutes ago and our house is fine but two steers over to the right has been declared a disaster zone. There are building parts, roofs, and power lines littering the streets. In fact they have declared the whole city of Arlington a disaster zone

Our neighbor "Gordon" shot this video of one of the
TORNADO.

We could definitely meet up if I come over. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I still get to go as the person that is supposed to go with me is talking about not going now. (We've been planning this for 3 years.) I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we still get to come.
