Marylou - I think that's what we'll do! I'll open a thread for December where we can just chat about our Christmas baking and share when we receive happy mail!

And to help you find your way back to the Angel Swap for January!

Hopefully I will be a new Angel in the swap. I feel comfortable as I am friends with most of you. I hope to be included in the future.
I agree with Ro, a Christmas Chatter would be nice Linda

Good morning sweet lovelies! Kayla, woohoo on the Christmas list & that will give us plenty of time to create a card for our partner!

I think I have finally got my new computer figured out! What a job & so thankful I have a great computer guy who comes to my house when I cry "HELP"!!! I am sure he doesn't want to hear from me for a while though!

Kayla, I did mail my card out on Wednesday.

Have a wonderful & blessed weekend sweet

Kayla, I am so sorry to be absent. I don't know why I have such a hard time getting into my scraproom and on the computer. I have started teaching at a new school the last 2 weeks and have been filling in for absent tutors. It takes more time than I realized. My husband and I have also been filling in for an Addiction Group leader who just had hip replacement. She will be back in December so we can go back to just 2 nights a week instead of 4.

I thought you had my address, but I'll pm it to you after this post.

Joyce, I am so sorry about the loss of your nephew. I am sending you hugs and prayers for all your family members and especially for you.

Your cards are all beautiful. I am still working on mine but will have it in the mail by Tues. I will try to remember to take a photo and post it here first.

Linda, it's so nice to have you join us. I hope you are doing well.
You will love this sweet group!

I'll be more faithful next week, I promise.
Nylene

Good morning. It is a bit cooler today. Today is the last race for my husband and my 2 oldest. It is a half marathon. They also have a bet going to see who can reach their goal time or get the closest to it. Then in about 3 weeks my crazy husband is going to attempt to run 100 miles in 30 hours (I believe) at one of our state parks. Hopefully there will be no alligators to deal with. My 3 older children are going to be his "pit crew". They can actually run parts of it with him.

Hey Karen. Just wanna wish your family good luck with their race today and to your husband with the 100 mile run coming up in three wks. Why someone would want to do that is beyond my thinking...lol

Today was the last race in the Toughest Bridge Series. Scott, Bryon and Lauren ran a half marathon over the Fred Hartman Bridge. It was cold this morning, but despite the cold they all did well. Scott 2:15, Bryon 2:55 and Lauren 3:05. The best part is that Lauren won the bet. Whoever reached their goal time or came closest to it got $100. Lauren came the closest at 5 minutes past her goal time.

Karen, how exciting that they finished their race & marathons. Good for them!:) I hope your life is seeing some form of normalcy even though your house isn't quite there yet.

100 miles??? I am with RO why?? I know people love it, but a nice leisurely walk for me is perfect!

Thanksgiving is coming to an end. My grandsons made a dent in the dinner & lots of leftovers for them to take home. Right now turkey doesn't even sound good!! All that work & over so quickly.

I hope all of you angels had a blessed day!

How was your Thanksgiving? Did any of you get out to shop on Black Friday?

The Christmas list will go out TODAY!

Good morning. This morning my daughter and my husband went down to run on the beach. They will be running a marathon in February on the beach.

I don't go out and shop on Black Friday. If I do shop, I shop from the comfort of my home. Because of Harvey my Christmas shopping, baking, crafting and decorating have all been thrown off. I am happy to say that I have one more online order to place, one store to go to and then I just need stocking stuffers.

Hi Kayla, welcome home! We missed you & your angels behaved themselves, probably because we were busy cooking & baking!!

I am so glad you spent time with your grandma & I am sure she treasured the time with you.

I don't do Black Friday! My grandkids get money & that works for me.

Karen, I am sure this is a difficult time with not having any of your decorations that I am sure you have collected thru the years. Will you buy new things & have a tree? Running on the beach is a tough one!;)

This is a card I made a few years back... And I've been searching all over for more sentiments like I used here and can't find any! Would any of you happen to have any?

Good morning ladies!

I got the Christmas Card list. Now, to start planning the cards.

Marylou - We are lucky to live in a two story house, so all of my Christmas decorations are upstairs. With the first floor being a construction zone there is no where to set up my decorations. I do have a 12" tree that I might put up, but I'm not sure where at the moment. My only prep space in the kitchen is my table, so I can't do my normal Christmas baking especially since a lot of my pots and pans and such are packed away in the attic. Although, I was thinking last night that I could bake mini loaves of bread in those mini holiday tins. It's just going to take some creative thinking this year.

My cards except for the address I got today went out this morning.
I have to apologize for typing rather than hand writing the messages inside. My arthritis is bad right now and I have a hard time holding a pen. It will clear up, but I knew I couldn't hand write all I wanted to say.
Hugs to all you sweet Card Angels

After we hear from the recipients, should we show our own sent Christmas cards? Since most will already be in or will soon be in our own galleries they would be easier to share than having to load and post all the cards we receive.

Nylene, youre really on the ball!

Nylene, I type all mine as I have tremors, so don't feel bad. We do what we have to do!:))

Kayla, if you go into Pinterest & type what kind of verses you want you will find all kinds. I have a book that I write down verses that I like. If you need something special just PM m & I might be able to help!;)

Looking forward to making cards for my sweet angels. I will be leaving on Thursday for Greeley to spend a week with my mom & sisters. I really have lots to do plus baking. Cards might not be quite as detailed as I would like!

Karen, thanks for sharing about your house & improvising!:))

I did try that Marylou but I didn't find a whole lot of anything. I found a few but I don't particularly like them. But I'll use them if I find no others.

Oh no is RO in trouble? If she has to confess something she has to tell all of us....YIPPEE!!

Kayla, the other thing I do is just type in my home page what I want, example: sympathy verses for cards, etc. Sometimes you find good & sometimes not!. Do you want sympathy or what?

So for example my friend that fell to her death from a grain leg earlier this year ... I would like a sentiment for a Christmas card for her parents that would be fitting. Something like I used for the card above ... but that is the ONLY sentiment that I've got that I truly like and I was hoping one of you would have a couple more ... Am I making sense?
