JCI- just bought some goodies! Nothing like laying in bed with an iPad and doing some shopping! It just makes things so easy! Except for I'm on my 2nd purchase and the place I'm ordering from doesn't do paypal and my debit card is waaayyyy downstairs!
I wonder if my 1st order has shipped yet!!!!!
Ladies, enjoy your wins from our generous hostess, who I hope is having fun at her retreat!
Michelle, this is my first year doing the NSD stuff.
I just hope I am feeling well and feel like scrapping!
It's suppose to be full on sun here and I am afraid I may start to wonder!
I only picked out 3 challenges to do, but I am a slow scrapper, so I figured that should be plenty!
I did 2 LOs yesterday, on my new journey, I like them "ok" but really not what I was looking to do. I chose a couple sketches to work with, maybe next time I'll try actual LOs to lift.
JCI - just now getting downstairs to clean up & prep for Saturday as well as figure out what I'm going to do since I've already done what everyone else is going to be looking at & I really don't want to do them again.
Good morning all, hubby is doing great!! He is just now beginning to get feeling back in a couple of fingers. The pain pump in his neck keeps the local area numb. Thanks for all the well wishes.
Sorry to hear there are still several not feeling all that well!!
Cloverlady, welcome!! We are always happy to see and hear how the new machine works! I have another offer of a monthly subscription for CCR with use of 29,000 images. I took a look at what is available......... looks like plenty that I don't have, plus you can cancel at any time! That is if I select the monthly fee and not the yearly. I doubt they would refund the yearly after only a month or two.
I play to do some NSD challenges too - I told dh he is in charge of ds and the house that day so we will see. I am supposed to go to an event with some girls from work in the evening but I told them I'd see how much scrapping I got to do!
I ordered a couple cartridges online from Joann's yesterday - Cindy Loo and December 25th by Teresa Collins - there were a ton more I wanted but I picked them out and let SIL know (she was doing an order) and by the time she went to order a few minutes later most of the ones I had picked were sold out already!
Woke up a couple hours ago! I guess I really needed the sleep. Hoping DH will get to corner to get the pocket pages I need for NSD. Also saw an awesome WRM punch set at Bealls I had tagged for Mother's Day. I hope they're still there since I've been sick all week.
Cloverlady - Welcome and glad we have a drug expert on board since we've all been sick and on meds Seriously though - glad you found us and skimmed through your gallery. Can't wait to see what wonderful projects you've got for us! Hope you're off tomorrow for NSD and the challenges. Most of us have/had furrbabies, so you know were OK.
Sharon - I guess I missed the info re your DH and hand. Glad he's doing better.
I apologize to everyone that I missed while spreading love - but have limited ability to focus while on new meds. All I want to do is sleep - SOOO not me! DH went to work today so I COULD sleep. I think my headache today is because I slept too much. As for the meds - conflict info "don't take if taking XYZ" and limit sunlight. So I guess I'll stick with new meds, don't take migraine meds until new ones are done. Go figure!
I guess my silver lining (I'm always trying to find the positive) is because I can't be out riding my bike I get to stay in my room all day scrapping for NSD!!! If I can wake up and focus!
Hey there! Friday is here and thank goodness for that! Subbed today and those kids were soooo squirrely. I was ready to call it a day.
Sharon- hope your dh is doing ok. Shoulder surgery is tough. Once all the pain blocks wore off my son had a rough time. He had to sleep in a chair for quite a while because it was tough to lay down on it. Hopefully you will see good improvement quickly.
Trish- you made me laugh out loud with your post about your debit card. Dang if we don't have to work hard while shopping from home too! Geez!
All these new carts...I'm expecting it to be a busy month already.
Don't know yet, Tina, but I'll tell as soon as I pick one!
And to think I put a Budget twist for no Cricut Carts this month! This doesn't count and hopefully won't get me all fired up about cartridges again! LOL!
LOL Trish! It's so hard to behave when I see such exciting news! And HA! Whatever did we do to shop before the invention of Ipads and Kindles??? I made a J's purchase last night for $1 shipping from bed... No Carts, but I have sworn them off for the month of May... unless of course a certain Mother's Day Fairy hands me a gift card!
I"m so excited for NSD tomorrow!!!
I've put stuff aside last night and plan to cut some goodies on my cricut for tomorrow's Diecut challenge. My friend who just joined this site (I'm trying to talk her into joining this challenge) is coming over for a few hours tomorrow afternoon with her big machine. Hopefully we get some things done!
JCI - taking a moment away from all the prep work for tomorrow. Looking forward to a DAY of scrapping. Good luck to all of you with the challenges. Hope to see lots of your names come up as WINNERS.
Sharon - I did sign up for the 9.99 subscription in the CCR. It does include quite a few cartridges that I don't own. But also included a LOT of single cards that are included as part of the 29,000 image count as well as each and every alphie on the font cartridges. Not sure after I cut what I need this month that I will renew again. I am certainly glad that I didn't sign up for the year. Oh and BTW - glad you DH is doing well.
hi Sonja's friend! Glad she talked you into joining us!
Hope you guys have fun tomorrow. I look forward to your contributions to this challenge!
Amanda, congrats on the new big toy! Sounds like fun.
I've picked only 3 for tomorrow's challenges.
I'm not feeling well ATM, so I'm hoping tomorrow will be a good day. Are you finally feeling better?
Tina, glad you got "freed" for tomorrow's fun, see you here!
Vickie, see you too tomorrow! This should be fun.
I'm still on the fence about the subscription. I'm pretty sure if I do, it'll be the yearly one tho. That'll give me time to see if it's really worth it. My Silhouette come up for renew in mid May, so I'll probably do it then so it's easier to remember!
Terri, this is my first yr too! I took the day off specifically for this! I have not looked at the prizes, sounds like a great deal!
Sonja, good job on the coercing ! Hopefully your friend will like it here and hang out with us!
Good luck on the month long freeze on carts! Good thing you won one! I did that same $1 thing at Joanne's - I did one at free ship over 50- and then went back in for more, so I did the $1 one. Can't wait to see what all I bought!!!
HAPPY NSD!!!!!! .....Im up early and in my room! ...had to clean first since I thought it might be a challenge again this year so I waited ....jokes on me ....I signed up for all 10 challenges ....we'll see if I get them done or run out of steam! ....good luck everyone! Hope to see some names I recognize in the winners thread!
Dropping my 1st off.
1 down, 2 to go!
Getting hungry and hubs wants to eat- he is still working on the fence, so I'm up for the food run!
Carts used were- Spring Holiday Cards for the shamrocks and Rock Princess for the "LUCKY". Lucky By ChansGram
I got all but one done, I think. I haven't done the die cut one yet-LOL. Not sure if I will have time. Today is prom so busy for a while but I did have to pop in and let you all know I went to a garage sale today and got 5 cartridges.
They aren't ones on my wishlist but for $5 each I had to get them. I knew the lady too and she really hasn't used them much.
I got several other things too.
What a day of excitement!
Happy NSD everyone! I just wanted to stop by and wish you all a beautiful day even though I didn't let myself join this challenge this month...couldn't stay caught up last month and May is an even busier month for my family. Hope you all have a fantastic day!
Michelle, I'm with you- I've lost my steam and want to go mingle with the dimensional people for awhile! So, in other words...time to leave the scraproom! But I did get my 3 done that I had committed to, so I'm happy! I really didn't think I'd get the 3rd done, but it was all those premade cuts and I stuck to "my style" so it went fairly fast!
