Whenever someone says something outlandish I'll say- yep & I'm Marry Poppins and my umbrella's in the shop. So now I just need to find that carpet bag and pull something out

tomorrow is SCRAP Day at my house & I intend to get the binder part DONE!!! Then I'll start working on my pages of me So wish you all could come over for Scrap Day- too bad I can't even Skype either Tomorrow we are also going to work on our Christmas card- like what we're going to make and then plan out the ingredients so we can make all we set out to create - last year I made 120+ Christmas cards- I don't think I'm doing that many this year. Like- I'm not making any for work. If people throw it away, I'd rather not see it and know they did.

I guess it helps that I don't do Halloween & Thanksgiving cards- I focus it all into Christmas

Here's the card I'm going to make:

Yes- DH will be home until January. Then he has phase 2 for 10 weeks. Then phase 3 won't be until Sept. Then he'll be done with school and be able to be promoted to CW2. I'm so proud of him.

Home from work today- moving slow- still have that pesky migraine. But I had to get up since being in bed 13+ hours has made my back hurt. So maybe I will play with doing the binder- I finished my workshop prep (the Clementine I posted on the scrap corner- and also in my gallery here). So hoping I can get my CTMH business up and moving to give me scrap money for when my job ends. Since the military is gearing down right now- I'm sure they will find me unfit- my back, the migraines & a condition called Painful Bladder Syndrome make me non-deployable... So thankful our house will be paid off in a little over a year from now- so losing half my income will not mean a change in lifestyle for us- I just won't have my drill pay that I use for my scrapping addiction. So build my business to feed that & I'll be good. That also means I'll have so much more time to scrap and play with paper. I'm really looking forward to it the more I think about it.

Char I am sorry to hear that you think the military might force you out but sounds like maybe not such a bad thing.....time to take care of yourself and play paper!!! If you have CTMH stuff that you want to sell....kits....products whatever......feel free to post them on the fb site in the for sale folder....who knows might generate a few sales!!! do you ever do just book parties.....maybe I could have a long distance party and you could skype us and do a demo???? just a thought!!! anything to help my sister have more paper $$$$$

Hope this day finds you feeling better

I wanted to play paper today and finish my binder but a friend gave me a BAZILLION tomatos......so looks like I am spending the day canning.....hard to pass up free veggies!!!!

Hope everyone has a great day!!!

Thanks ladies- stayed home again today- my eyes hurt so bad this morning. Yesterday afternoon I got this funny thing with my vision- it was like looking thru fractured glass with a flashing light behind it- lasted 30-45minutes. I've sent a message to my neurologist this afternoon since I'm finally up to looking at a computer screen again. btw my MRI came back normal- so there is nothing there to explain any of this. That's usually the case tho. My DH keeps saying they need to figure it out and fix it. I've tried to explain to him it's more about prevention and figuring out what triggers them than anything.

Cass- Yes- we could post and hold a catalog party- it's called something specific- dang- just can't remember right now. But I can figure that out. I'd have to be somewhere with faster internet to Skype tho. Plus ours goes out whenever it thinks it might rain. The internet company keeps telling us it's a storm thing- NO- we can understand thunder & lightening.... so we are looking into either they fix it or we switch companies. We can only get satellite here as it is. I'm hoping to get some things going with my gals who come regularly via their church friends. That way I could use the church to get groups together. If I could be somewhere to Skype- we could do a workshop- everyone order their kit, then about 2 weeks later we would set up to Skype our group and work on it. The last 2 LOs I posted are from a workshop. It takes about 10 days from date of order to get it shipped and to the recipient. It takes about 3 hours to do the full workshop of the 2 LOs- but I could do the alternate LO as the pattern for it isn't with the kit & then everyone could do the main one on their own- there's options.

so far- so good on no migraine today - went home yesterday and laid down a couple hours. Thinking about Cass & Debby scrapping this afternoon- so wish I could be there too. Have a design in mind for the binder now- think I can start cutting, stamping & actually assembling it today if I'm still feeling decent when I get home.

so need to finish the binder- got sidetracked with an old project that I didn't finish last year- a banner for Thanksgiving- since the holiday passed before I got far. So now I'm determined to get it done and hung to enjoy for the next month.

I just 'removed from favorites' the banner & tag threads. I hesitated to do it to. Last week I tried, but added them right back. Isn't it funny how attached we get sometimes?

So just to be sure, since I know we lost a few sisters recently. How many "info" pages do we have to make for this swap now? I would so like to get this done and mailed by the first week of October. That's my goal. So my pages will probably be fairly simple. Of course I say that and who knows what will happen in the end. Haha.

sounds like a good idea Suzi - introducing the idea & then doing it in January would probably be a good time-line. Life has been hitting several of us quite hard & the original 10 ladies is down to 5-6 I think. Debby & I have been going back & forth in here for awhile- which is okay- but it's much more fun with a group

I think there is only 4 that participated in this swap that is still around, you cass debby and erin and I think I am the only other around, I was just to busy at the time to do this and it seemed time consuming and I just didn't think I could put the time in it for my pal to get something nice, I have followed the thread some there was somethings I missed when there was alot of talking but hasn't been much going on for awhile

yep that is life and sometimes it doesn't go our way, mine is I need more hours and money lol and could always use better health for my mom but she is such a trooper....oh her counts are back to normal so she is on her last round of chemo and they have some new trial vaccine thing out that the dr is trying to get her to be able to get that will hopefully keep her cancer free longer this time she had to go for an interview for it but I keep forgetting to ask if she found out yet if she got accepted for it

oh and she finds out tom. if she gets to be a partof the trail for the vaccine so keeping my fingers crossed and praying she gets to, it is suppose to be like a kids getting there vaccine shots its suppose to prevent people from getting cancer she will get so many shots for a year, she will get a shot every week for the 1st 2 months then once a week for 3weeks for so many months and it keeps getting less they will monitor her numbers see if they stay down while she gets these shots then how long after she is off them before her #'s go back up, hopefully I got that right if not it is something like that so hopefully someday there will be a cure

Is this still going? I hope so. I haven't forgot about it, it's just been on the back burner. I have a binder for my pal and for the life of me I'm not having much luck on ideas on how to decorate it I've been working on and off on the simple page about me. I'm also trying to figure out the least expensive way to mail these out as this month is tight on $ due to Christmas costs(may have to wait until after Christmas unfortunately- we'll see though). Anyway, I did want to check it and see if this was still happening or not. Just out of curiosity, who has sent in "About Me" pages?? I just don't want to make up a bunch and then get half of them back.

I still did 10 pages- I just did them up on the computer & printed them on resume type paper- but green.

I've got the binder started- have yet to finish- got side tracked onto other things- last month I had almost 0 time to scrap at all & got only a couple cards made. So I am hoping with December being quieter around my house I can spend more time scrapping- PLUS- the diet I've been on the constant headache I've had since May has faded & I only had 4 migraines in Nov- which is a huge improvement from where I was.

Thanks for getting back to me Char. I feel better that this swap is still in the works and not just waiting on me. It looks like there's only 4 of us participating in this swap (you, me, Cass and Debby), I haven't seen anyone post or check in other than that and I don't think the other ladies from the front page are in the group anymore unfortunately. Glad to hear your headaches are lessening! I just sent off the last swaps due this month. I have 2 due in January, but they are LOTW/Alphabet swaps and I can usually do those within a few days. So I too am hoping I will get some inspiration and time this month to be able to finish the binder
