Thank you so much, I was able to add the items to the wish list. This is sort of new to me...still learning. Sending my package for swap numer 5 today. I have to do things when I feel stronger. No chemo this week so after work I am going straight to the postal office.
Me too! I used my cuopons for Michaels and JoAnn all weekend and took my daughters so I could use all the coupons that I ahd. Now, that is an addiction!!!!!!!!LOL!!!!! !!!Today, I am going to mail my package for swap #5 and to Home Depot to buy the tiles for the photo coasters. I want to make them for Christmas gifts. I will be working this week on Christmas cards for the Sand Lake Cancer Center where I get my chemo treatments. They are so nice to me and every patient as well.
Jci- I had a great Thanksgiving but my holiday weekend ended with a main drain back up in my basement so sewage water every where. We were able to fix it but I will be sterilizing for a long time since I am working 7am to 11pm Mon thru Wed.
On the bright side we only lost the fiberglass floor and we now know what the drain in the floor is for. We only wish the previous home owners hadn't capped it off.
Afternoon ladies...well today is date night with my other half. He is trying to make it every Tuesday we go to see a movie. So its the James Bond one today...I haven't even started decorating for the holidays yet...need to still clean some junk up and put scrapping/card making stuff away...never finished making my Christmas cards either....
Enjoy your day...ladies have you ever checked out Pinterest.com?
jci...i am excited bout my vacation...starts 2moro...but i had a biopsy last wednesday...needless to say the Dr ruined my holidays...she told me i have a 3 in 6 chance of Uterian cancer...i plan to go on vacation and forget about the world for a week...will devote this time just to kids and make this 1st family vacation unforgettable...
Hello babigirl ! Hope all you ladies are doing well. My prayers are with those of you going through sickness. Stay strong & positive. I had to see my doc about my knees today.Gotta see an ortho specialist. Age setting in I suppose ! Anyway,I will be mailing out a package to my Secret Pal some time next week. Wanna get ahead off things,so much to do this time of year !
Well another month gone by....We are fast approaching the New Year....I am hoping everyone has a better year than this last time...
My package is not started....too many things happened...I am always on top of things...but people just think I have all the time in the world to just do crazy things with them....I have not even put up my tree as I wanted...my craft room is all over the house...I need to finish getting it back together so my son can get in there to sleep. Yep there is actually a place to sleep in this room....hahaha
I sent my package for swap #5 but still haven't done any Christmas decorations and I want to add another project to my long list! WOuld I make it before Christmas? Not sure! Trying to finish some handmade gifts to send to my family in Puerto Rico! Talking about pressure! No wonder I can't sleep some nights!!!LOL!!!
My package is boxed up and addressed. Here is a hint.... I live in the midwest and it is going EAST. OK... that gives about half of the country or continent a glimmer of possibility. Someone should receive it by the end of the week.
Jci...was on a wonderful cruise....while I was away...i did get a package from this website...but no idea on who to thank...i will take a pic n post a list tonight or in da morning....great package!! Thx....

6ta... my hubby got very sick on a cruise one time. We were glad we took the cruise insurance. We did have to pay on board, but got reiumbursed about a month after filing the papers when we got home. Glad to know your biopsy was benign. Take care.
Someone should have happy mail from me tomorrow or Saturday at the latest.
I got my package! I got my package! I got it!! So excited. My secret sister was really my personal scrapbook Santa CLaus! She gave me so much, the paper that I wanted from SB, the flowers, the little pocket about the ten things that I like about you, some charms, you name it! I got it all!!! Thank you so much, but I dont know her name. She was clever, she didn't added her name! I want to know who you are. God used you, I was at home laying in the love seat feeling blue due to the chemo and just missing my family when the UPS guy knocked on the door and there was my package. I did cry even without opening as I saw God in your present. I knew He was indeed lifting my spirit as He knew that I was feeling a little bit sad. After opening the stuff, I went ahead and put Christmas music and I was so happy. The next thing, another scrapper freind shows off to my door with groceries for a month! SHe knows my situation. Two wonderful angels came to my rescue! Thank you so much! Gracias mil! I love you!

Sent off package to my "secret Pal" today (Wednesday) Hope she likes and can use everything I sent,after reading an earlier post just a moment ago,I am more concerned that she actually recieves it !!!!!!
If its coming this way I tend to recieve just fine Lori WINK WINK its sending that I have issues with LOL. Thats why I send direct from here to my pals that way I cut Canada Post completely out of the pictures LOL.
I am done decorating and last night I took the pictures that I took from all the scrapbooks I made while recovering for three month afte my colon cancer surgery. Cannot believe how many I made for my three daughters and my 4-years grandson who love to see his own scrapbooks. It mays me cry when I see how excited he is when he sees his pictures on the scrapbook. It makes everything so special and motives me to keep going and to stay healthy. Hopefully I will get my internet end of January and I can share all my work again. Now working on photo coasters on tiles for my mom and sister in law. I just need to buy the gift for my youngest grandson and giftw cards for my nephew and niece. My family in PR ( my sister and her children - young adults) will get their package mail after Friday when I get pay. Cards are done and stamped, I just need to make it to the postal office!
Have a great weekend. I will be off work tomorrow. It is my sick day from chemo...in reality is just that I am so drain off energy and so sleepy that I stay in bed all day from this afternoon until Friday! WHo can complaint about that! Not me, except that is a day that I don't get pay!
Still waiting to hear if my "Pal" recieved her package yet. She should have gotten it last Friday OR Saturday for sure. Secret Pal,if you have recieved,please let me know so I can put my mind at ease! Thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is a good thing my son is home; my husband has had boxes sent for the last 2 weeks and I have just been putting them aside becasue I know they are gifts for me. He got one from here today too. But my son saw it and said, "Wait Dad adressed this one to you?"
