Wow, not much to read. Only Denise checked in today!

It was a busy weekend for me. It feels good to have nothing to do tonight.

Thanks for prayers for Griffin. Keep it up as he is still so tiny. They did take him off the respirator and his mommy Jill got to hold him. My brother (the grandpa) said Jill was glowing.

Florida and Gulf people stay safe!!!

Catch you tomorrow.

Good morning!

One of those days where I'm worried about so many people. Those who are prayerful please add a young adult named Mandy to your list. Her Grandma is on the rockin' scrappin' grams with Cheryl and me. She is having back surgery at this moment. Thanks

Hurricane path friends--stay safe/

Good afternoon all! 

Didn't mean to stay away for soooo long! Been super busy with Patrick going back to school and my MIL. Things are finally starting to settle down. Nice to see I was missed

I am soooo far behind...don't know if I'll ever get caught up! 

Prayers are out for everyone who is isnt well

Issac kinda blew over by me...just periods of extreme rain and some wind. We did get some water in the house last night...the wall by my front door leaks when it rains heavy...but nothing major.  I pray that it doesn't hit New Orleans hard. Patrick had no school today..it was a lazy, stay in and putter around the house kinda day. A nice break

Happy Birthday and Anniversary to those I missed!

I have a Cricut Expression and a Cricut Imagine Terry...I love them both! I know lots of people had problems with their Imagine...I've been lucky. In fact I started some Christmas cards using it today

I broke my scrap fast today....bought 16 WhipperSnapper stamps. OMG they are soooo cute! Cost a pretty penny but I haven't been scrap shopping since May so well deserved

That Boo card is soooo cute Cheryl! Your perm looks great!

Congratulations on the job Kim!!! That's awesome and I'm so happy for you!

Hi hi to everyone else! Hope y'all are doing well

I think I spoke too soon...it's pouring like a monsoon out there now with thunder and the TV and lights just went off! Thank goodness for my cell phone...will catch up on my Words with Friends for now

Hi Donna glad to see ya....stay safe! Isaac is all they're talking about on the news here.

Started out cold and windy and overcast this morning but now it is nice and warm and sunny..sat outside reading and coming back inside every so often to stare at my layout hoping a clever idea pops into my head...already got the G45 pps Bird Song and the Christmas one...working on a layout for one of my dolls using the Bird Song pps.

Said a prayer for Mandy, Cathe...hope her surgery was succesful.


Cleaned out a cupboard and a busy drawer and the dreaded top of the fridge...threw away a lot of stuff...feels good. Also I've been going through my scrapcrap and have filled two brown paper grocery bags...the paper stack is 3 inches tall....lots of stuff I have had for forever..finally figured I'd never use it...so out it goes...actually to the swap table at the retreat next month...Katy gets to go through it and I get to go through hers...lol...so a lot of the stuff will just trade houses.

I got FOUR messages from Joann the other day re the big Lucky 8 punches...I guess I was asking to be notified when they came in..didn't realize I asked 4 times...so anyway I had just bought the one I wanted at the expo for 19.99....but I emailed Katy and told her they had these punches for 14.99.....her dh let her get FOUR of them...I went on the next day and they were 19.99....sorry I didn't tell you all they when they were 14.99 but who knew that would only last a day or so...anyway Katy said a couple of them were sold out already.
Love mine but it is just so big.

I talk too much

Jeannie don't worry about talking too much! Jo ann's seems to do that. They were out of the Lucky 8 punches a few weeks ago when I discovered a sale. When notified they were back to regular prices. I got one at Archiver's with a 43% off coupon.

Cheryl you must mean business today with cleaning and scrapping....you are "offline". You're probably afraid to get me on IM and we'd chat the hour away.

Hi to all.

Hi ladies. Just checking in. The results from the biopsy came back..everything is normal thank god!! I was really scared because of the fact breast cancer runs in my family. I have to go back in 2 months for a mammogram, and ultrasound, then once a year after that.

Jessa ended up coming home on Friday with a cold. Now Natalia and Ashley have it. Ashley has her 3 month well baby visit on Friday!! I cant believe she is going to be 3 months old. Time really is going by! She has got to be 11lbs or more by now!

Jess is adjusting well to all her teachers and is totally loving the Boys and Girls club after school.

I havent scrapped yet, but hopefully since this weekend is a 4 day weekend for hubby, I will get some time to scrap.

I miss being here but hopefully that will change come net month and we are more on schedule and routine!!!

Hi, everyone!

Donna, welcome back! I think it's great that you haven't bought anything scrappy since May! I never eat bruschetta out cause I hate onions, and I am afraid there will be onions some where.

Cathe: Griffin and Mandy are in my thoughts and prayers.

My mom has a special scrap request for me, and i don't know what I am going to do. she was helping her buddy run a tent at the Iowa State Fair when President Obama showed up. She got pictures of herself with Obama, and she wants me to scrap them. I am excited, but also a bit apprehensive--I really want to do a special LO! Don't know about papers, etc!

My job is going well. I did Bingo yesterday, and I made some minor mistakes, which really got some people mad! But I learned that some people are that way no matter who is "calling" Bingo. Today we have tie-dying. My boss was wondering what we can have them dye, and I suggested a tapestry for the activity room, so that is what we are going to do. We got a sheet from housekeeping, and it should be a lot of fun. I brought in my markers and most of my traceable templates. The residents have made some really great-looking stuff! My boss told me I could teach scrapbooking if I want, and I think I will just keep it as a simple way to preserve their pictures. I will use my chopper to make pre-done mats for pictures, and have them put the pictures on with simple titles, journaling and embellies. I have a huge stack of tear-out alphas from Joann's--hope to be able to use the Xyron. I think that would be easiest. I don't want to make it something that will frustrate or confuse the residents.

Gotta work till 9 tonight--"Movie Night." Haven't worked that before.

Hello Anna, Katy, Jeannie, Terry, Densie, Mandy, and anyone else I may have missed.

BBL!

Kim

Donna yes...just what you did last time..my stupid printer cuts off the sides and or the tops or bottoms of my pics even when I think they're formatted correctly...if I have the original I now understand how to fix that..but those photos of me and Roni at Lush were taken by Vicki on her cell. I meant to write this last night..but had another of those brain [email protected]

Cheryl did you get a pic of dd all dolled up.

Mandi so glad you and all the kids are fine...I'll be glad to see you here more often with pics of the baby and the other kiddos.

Cathe...43% off...?..that's an odd amount..lucky you though. I just wouldn't pay full price for one of those punches... even though they are big and do 3 different styles.

Kim sounds like you're having a good time with all the different activities. It was only a matter of time til you got them scrappin'! I think that is a great idea. And take pics of the tapestry they make.

Hi Denise and Terry and Anna and Mel (gone again!).

Miss you Sis.

Am struggling with a layout...the reds in the G45 Bird Song pps are not as red red as I'd hoped and the little sarong my Japanese dolly is wearing is very red...minor problem but it is bugging me.
Dentist this morning and nails this afternoon...scrapping in between.

Have a good day one and all.

yakkin again.

Good morning Ladies!!!
Can't remember the last time I made in here in the a.m., LOL!!!
Hannah started school today...maybe that's why.

Went to Job Lots yesterday and picked up (for a dollar a piece)some cute little Jar embellishment kits, for mason jars. One is vintage, one exploring, a christmas one, and the other was "Gone Fishing" The lst one even has a fly fishing "Fly" in it! They are soo cute! I'd have to open the packages to take pics... Then I found large index boxes, covered in red, dark green, navy blue felt. They all came full with the index cards...Me thinking is to make recipe boxes out of them! One for my daughter Miss Elizabeth...if it comes out cute with added embellies, then maybe it will be a great trinket to make for the store....Camping recipes????? HMMMMMMMMMMM...
Anyway...
Checked the cabins out last night...not too bad, Yay! Cleaning won't be horrific...I shouldn't say that...MOST clients are very good at picking up. Makes my process easier...not shorter!
Landscaping needs attention this week too...especially with the last horrah of summer upon us. Man! I thought summer was a short season before...now with bookings it was a whirlwind! Hope winter passes as fast!
Have Griffin in my prayers Cathe...God Bless him!
Kim congrats on the job!
It was very nice finally seeing my kids!
Hope everyone has a wonderful day!!!

Donna--you ok? Is Issac totally pass you now? I'm emailing a guy in AL and the rains have hit there hard.
Cathe--how's little Mandy? Griffin doing ok? Updates please....
Mandy--dang it girl --- you should let us know that you thought you had breast cancer! There's a couple of us on here that went thru it. Be religious about getting mammograms done!!!!

Well off to work! Everyone have a great day!

Jo-the store looks like it is coming along nicely. We don't have one of those Job Lots. The kits sound really cool.

Kim I think you are perfect for your job. I like all your ideas to keep the clients engaged.

Jeannie good luck with your Graphic 45 papers. I can't decide if I love them or not. The baby papers were fun. Not sure the Halloween papers are me.

Hiya JO! Do you do all the work at the campground by yourself? or does hubby help too? You have to be beat by the end of the day.

Kim, you cannot please everyone all the time so do your best and don't sweat the rest. It takes a special person to work with our elderly and I think those folks are lucky to have you!

Jeannie,we do love to hear from you so don't you dere stop yer ramblin'. Good luck figuring out the reds.

Cheryl, cleaning and scrappin? You must be superwoman. I have to concentrate on one thing at a time.

Cathe, any news on the little one or Mandy?

Mandi, good news, hugs to you.

Terry, don't work too hard.

Anna, how's it going?

Katy, come back, we miss you.

Mel, how are ya?

Donna, Issac has passed you by and seemingly missed us here in Htown. If it had wandered a just a litte to the west it would have not been good for us.

Got my laundry room and pantry cleaned, painted and organized. Next to the linen closet.

Denise - I know your question about Mandy was directed to Cathe but I am on the same thread as the request was made. Mandy's surgery went well yesterday after a little scare at the beginning. She was sleeping well last night and pain under control. This was back surgery on a 27 year old.

So, I did a little bit of cleaning, a little bit of scrapping, took a nap, kept Ryan for an hour and now back to scrapping.

Jo enjoyed the photos...you should make a little scrapbook of the process and have it on the counter in your little store. People would love it.

Thanks Cathe...will keep jabbering then...

Here's the lo where I was struggling with the colors...and the design and the photos and the embellies and etc...anyway what I did was re do the photos in my iPhoto in an antique finish. The little outfit is very bright red irl.I thought of Copics Terry but I didn't want to possibly ruin the pps. The papers are gorgeous and there are also so many really cute pps in the Nutcracker collection too.

Kiomi's original outfit was cute enough but I wanted her in a kimona. Katy gave me 3 little fans last year and I tried one with Kiomi and she actually was able to hold on to it and the size was almost perfect...Thanks Katy.

Glad Cheryl cleared up the Mandy inquire.

Baby Griffin is doing ok all considered. Mommy and Daddy got to hold him...all hooked up of course. He is off the respirator. I just keep praying that he continues to improve.

I got the bedsheets washed and that was about it. I left the house to get some pictures as they are 1/2 price on Tues. Messed around for 3 hrs. with my sil until the photos were done. It was 5:30 when I got home.

Hope we get some rain from Issac way up here in Illinois. Sure hope everyone stays safe.

Good morning!

Anna-yes-MIL is back home. I'm honestly suprised (and very happy) with how quickly she recovered. Since the surgery she has no more hip pain. She can now walk without pain

Denise-Isaac has left us without damage. I hope he is as kind to New Orleans. Funny how it here there on the eve of the 7 year anniversary of Katrina. Heres a photo I found on FB that made me giggle...

Isaac By DittoBabyGirl

Jeannie-message me your email address please. I'm done with your photos

Mandi-glad everything checked out ok! What a relief for you

Kim-very cool that you get to scrap pics of our president! Can't wait to see them!

Gonna try to get to Kohls and Fashion Bug before work. Sad that Fashion Bug is closing-I liked shopping in there

Oh...got me a new bag for the fall! Its a fossil and I loveeee the color. It matches my coach lol Hubby was nice and paid for half :)Its big and soft and smells soooo good

Hi Mandi! Glad you checked in! Take care! Glad your medical report is all clear! Hope the little ones continue to do well!

Hi Jo! Love seeing all of your photos on facebook! It looks like your place is just bursting with activity and campers!

Terry, I didn’t get the sketch done either. Sorry.

Cathe, so glad to hear that Baby Griffin is doing well and improving.

Donna, the Fashion Bug here closed too. Did they go out of business? Love the new purse too.

I need to pick your brains for some suggestions, please. My sister and I are doing a three panel display board about some vintage clothing my Mom has. Some of the clothing will be on display but most will not and I have taken photos and will display them on the board. Can you all give me any ideas on how to do the memory board…title…or just any suggestions. This is for the community’s fall festival. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

Have a great day ladies.

HI EVERYONE! Its ME!

Life has been crazy the last month. Seriously I thought that things would calm down some when the boys started school last week, nope its gotten more hectic with PTA in full swing & cub scouts starting tonight.

Henry has kept me busy running from one doctor appt to the next. Something going on with his kidneys again. Next week we're over in St. pete at All childrens Hospital for a workup in the nephrology dept. Tomorrow we're over at Dr. Tridas to figure out what is going on developmentally and then spend 2 hrs at school with the ESE dept for a learning/teaching plan of attack.

Everyone else is doing well, I have been scrapping. That is what I've been doing in any down time, sort of cathartic. Shoot I haven't even been on Facebook, too much to handle.

Stacey we've been wondering where you were. Poor Henry. Sure hope you can get his problem properly diagnosed and taken care of. Yes, scrapping is cathartic.

I see Cheryl is not online. We discussed how we have to actually turn off our computers to get our housework and errands done. lol

Donna I LOVE Fossil purses. They have gotten so expensive. What gives them the right to do that???? They used to be a little better if you had a coupon. The one I liked was $178. no way. You know how much scrapping stuff I could buy for that?

Have a good day.

Cathe - I was doing laundry AGAIN, than I ran to the store for a few ingredient to throw in the crockpot for tonight. I woke up with a sore throat, sneezing, and nose running and find out there is something going around that seems to be allergies but isn't and then goes into your chest. I hope I don't get ALL of that.

Stacey - Wonderful to see you check in!! Sorry life is so busy and filled with issues. It is nice to be able to scrap and forget your worries for a time. Prayers for you all.

Morning! I seem to have left my enegry at curves--a nap really sounds good right now!

Cheryl--get well! I love the quote in your bw LO! May lift that at some point.
Donna--Great purse! Love the color & love Fossil but as Cathe said why did they get so spendy? That being said I was at the outlet mall last Monday and for kicks walked into the Coach store. Holy cow...50% off marked on the tag with another 30% in coupons. I just couldn't stop myself. A wallet & purse for $80---coach????
Stacey--glad you checked in. I hope you finally get some good news re Henry! Your life does sound like its on the fast track!!
JO--love the photos on Facebook. Gorgeous!
Anna--what about searching google images for vintage clothing photos. I found some under vintage tags so you could just print out the tag shape with the image already there. Also, can you Distress ink the board to get the vintage look?
Mandi--glad it all worked out. If you need an ear PM me!
Denise--so thankful that Issac missed you! It is really wrecking havoc in Biloxi from what I saw.

Ladies, I'm off to work and also to figure out that new Expression 2. Dang that machine is big!

Back from running errands with Priscilla. She now has a non-restricted license. Before now, she could only have one person in the car unrelated to her. I am fixing her something to eat before she heads to work in about half an hour.

Donna, cute photo! I'm glad your MIL is getting better and feeling no more pain. LOVE your new purse! What a nice DH you have!
Stacy, good to hear from you. I hope everything turns out OK for Henry! You've been one busy lady!
Cathe, I agree...that is a lot of money for a purse! Just think of all that scrap [email protected] one could buy!
Cheryl, I hope it's just allergies....(although they pretty much suck).....and not a cold!! take it easy!
Terry, I have the Cricut Expression 2! I've used it a couple times... Completely different from the first one as far as selecting the letter/shape.... I still love it....just gotta get used to it.
Mandi, that's good news! Glad to hear some for you!

Last weekend I ordered 4 of those Lucky 8 punches from Joann.com....would have ordered all 6 that they had, (for $14.99 who wouldn't?) but 2 were out of stock....o well...I received a shipping confirmation only showing 3 of them being shipped.. One was on back order and they didn't want to keep the charge open on my card....Of course that one was the one I REALLY wanted.... Last Sunday I also ordered the new Graphic 45 "Nutcracker sweet" line.....and I already received it today! Now to go dig up some Christmas photos to scrap!... And around the 10th of next month I should be receiving my next monthly scrapbook kit..... I think I have enough scrap [email protected] for awhile.......

I am home sick today due to sore throat, sneezing, fever, and chills. Our policy at work is that you must call in by 3 a.m. if you are not coming to work. So, you either have to decide by bedtime or just plan on going at 11:00 p.m. I was having chills so I called then. Still feel like [email protected] this morning!

Katy - Great price on those punches.

Good morning!
Hi Stacey! Hope your son gets good news from the doctor! Glad you checked in. I hope things slow down a bit for you.

Cheryl and Cathe, if I keep my computer off, I can get soooooo much more done. I used to get everything done before I sat down to get on the computer, now it is the exact opposite. Not sure how I let that happen. I really need to eliminate some blogs

Terry, thanks for the suggestions. Not sure what we are going to do. Display boards and bulletin boards are really not my thing.

Hope you feel better, Cheryl!

Hello to the rest of the gang!

Cheryl-take care. At least with having to decide by 3:00, you don't have to wake up and then try to decide if you should go or not go. Get better

I watched several tutorials on making rosettes. all that folding! My arthritis --I think it is arthritis makes my fingers hurt every now and then, So should I return the mini scoring board? I see Tim Holtz has a card that scores, but it is so much more expensive than the MS board. I don't see an advantage. Does anyone have an opinion...lol

off to get out of pj's

Good morning! If you were here & looked out my window you would swear it was Feb!

Cathe--wish I had something to say that would help but I don't have a clue! I use the punches from McGill for roses & other flowers--or just buy them.

Cheryl-- so sorry you are sick. I'm seeing flu shot signs everywhere so it must be the season.

Anna--I agree--I am not a display board person. I think you could also use a die cut machine for antique objects like corsets & dress forms. I also know that Mandy (Craftysprinkles) has some on her Etsy shop.

Katy-- were those the mini 8s or the big ones? I've been toying with buying a mini 8 but I really need to be on a scrap diet for awhile!

I was reading the main forum and came across a post where this gal was talking about people on here that are always neg and name calling and ridiculing anyone else's ideas or comments. Has anyone run across this here? Curious---I don't post a lot under other threads but I've never run across that.

Off to get busy! Hi Jeannie, Kim, Stacey, Denise, Donna, the missing Mel ( ) and ???

Terry - The lady that you read the post about name calling and negativity is absolutely on other threads. We have NEVER had that problem in this thread.

In between napping, I am making Christmas cards:

Wow Cheryl, I had no idea! DH is on a thread about retrievers and those people do not have any problems calling each other out and in some cases the same person is the trouble stirrer. As long as the language remains non-abusive the moderator lets it go. I can't imagine that happening here!

Cathe, I am no help, sorry.

Cheryl, so sorry you feel bad. I hope the sore throat goes away soon and you are back to 100%.

Terry, oh yes, there are a few folks that seems to think theirs is the only opinion that matters and they have the right to call anyone out that doesn't "think" like they do. There has been some that openly acused them of it and it gets real ugly fast. Threads they post on sometimes get taken down because it gets so bad with the name calling. Often its starts with one of them telling a poster they were being mean and that their opinion is wrong and goes downhill from there. There is a thread on the 2nd page called Nevermind that is a very minor example. I think part of it was removed.


Anna, good luck with the fair project. G45 -seems like they'd have some product you could use. If you can set some items on the table in front of the board that looks good. Find a small metal dress form, compact, gloves, button hooks, hat pins, etc. that fits the fashion topic. Hope I understood correctly what you are doing...

Stacey, hope Henry is feeling better and there isn't anything major going on.

Hey ladies!
Terry-thanks soooo much for reminding me about hosting for September! I’ll get that up tonite or tI completely forgot lol. And yes…there are a few ladies on the main who I’d like to go Brooklyn on. Anytime there is drama they are right there either starting it or smack right in the middle of it. In my opinion they should be banned.

Hope you feel better Cheryl! How does Pricilla like driving? How are you handling it? Patrick still hasn’t gotten his permit! I’ve been on his case to study…not that I want to rush him to drive-but I want him to be a solid driver before he gets his license

I hope all goes well for your lil guy Stacey

Cathe-I didn’t know Fossil raised their prices…I just discovered I liked them. Up until last year the most I ever spent on a bag was like $50. Apparently my taste has changed lol. In my defense…I don’t buy as many as I used to. My new one was (eekkk) $250.

Terry-that’s a great deal on a Coach! Good for you!!

I haven’t purchased any of those Lucky 8 punches…didn’t intend buy any-but $14.99? I may have to reconsider lol

Anna-I would do the display board like I would a scrapbook layout. Maybe do 12x12 color blocks on part of it. Add some clipart of vintage images as well. As for a title…maybe “those were the days”?

Glad you liked my funny Denise…it made me chuckle

I am in SUCH a mood to start my Christmas cards. I cut out a bunch of images with my Imagine. Gonna take some supplies with me to work on Monday. Hopefully it will be slowww and I’ll be able to make some cards

Good luck with your board Anna...I like Terry's idea....Do you have letter stickers or a cartridge with and old fashioned font or an art deco font? ...that would be nice for the title...Vintage Fashions or Mom's Closet...or a Ladies Wardrobe....take pics when you're done, ok?

I quote from your last line in your post Katy...."I have enough...."...and I laugh.

Tracy....I hope you get the best news about Henry..it is nice to see you back again.

Hope you're feeling better Cheryl.

In the doll forum I used to post on there were a couple ladies that just liked to gripe....I loved that most people just ignored them but sometimes there'd be a thread that would go nasty and eventually would be stopped....there are people like that everywhere....imagine only being happy or satisfied when p*ssing everyone off...poor things. How miserable they must be.

Cathe hope your arthritis gets better and doesn't keep you from doing detailed work.

Donna I LOVE that purse...love it...want it. DD2 gave me a Fossil last Christmas...totally shocked me. It's a black and brown shoulder bag...love it too. I will spend good money (meaning lots of money) on a good leather bag...but I use them for years...my everyday purse for the last 3 years is a Fossil. I have a couple Dooney Burkes too. My nephews gf sold me a plain Coach bag, slightly used for only 20 bucks.

Spent 2 hours working outside today...trimmed pruned and watered....cleaned off the front porch. I do not look up...hence my ceilings and ceiling fans get very dusty and cobwebby and when I looked above the front door I was shocked at all the cobwebs...shoulda kept them up til Halloween...gone now though...til next time I remember to look up (next year sometime lol).

off to eat...just realize that growling wasn't Scout...but my tummy.

Thanks for the suggestions ladies. I do have the Circut heritage cartridge.

I haven't read the other forum stuff so not aware of who is trashing who or what is being said. I've only seen that kind of stuff on here once and it got really intense. And I was even more suprised at who was involved!

Wow, I had no idea it went on here. Like I said, I rarely read other threads so....maybe I need to keep that up! I'm like Donna--sometimes there are people who make me wnat to "go Brooklyn" on them but they are not on the internet either.

Yes, Anna, when you do get the board done please post a photo!

Ok...back to work!

Anna your project sounds wonderful. I like all the suggestions others have given you.

Chery you cards are darling. At least you weren't too sick to make some cards. That is good, your day wasn't a total bust.

Stacy sure hope Henry is ok.

Any suggestions? What kind of glue can I use on felt? My Glue Dots are failing me.

I cleaned kitchen drawers today. I didn't know they were such a mess...and crumbs...how do crumbs get in the silverware trays anyway?

I am so glad that everyone in this thread is nice and welcoming. I only do 2 threads. The Rockin' Scrappin' Grams is nice too.

My hands/wrists feel stiff from all the work I did today. Guess tomorrow is a day away from cleaning. But we are having company Sat. still more to do. (sigh)

Nighty night
