Welcome Beth! This month is not our normal month. Our regular host is taking a break for a bit. Because this month is so short I decided that we would just send a Valentine card to one of our angels. So, this month you only need to make 1 card. Make sure that you pm Scrap-Time (Kathy) your address so she can assign you an angel to send a Valentine card to.

Next month, we will be back to our regular swap. If you participate next month, you submit a name to the host with a reason you would like a card sent to that person. You will then be assigned a name to send a special card to during the month.

Welcome Stephanie!

I got my address. I'll hopefully have a scrap room after the weekend so I'll actually have scrapping space. Today the front door is supposed to be put in and touch ups done. Then I think we are all done. I've already started moving down stairs. We've slept in a real bed now for 3 nights. Once I get all moved in (or most of the way) I'll post pictures.

Martica so glad to see that you found our little group of angels. We really do enjoy bringing smiles. This month is a little different as we just randomly received a name of another angel to send a Valentine's card to.
Next month we will be back to normal. We send a name and address of a person who needs a card and a reason.... loss of job, death, depression.... Sometimes it is a just because. Then our hostess randomly mixes up the recipients and assigns us each one.

Ro, I am so sorry you drank the Moscato by yourself, bummer! I seldom drink wine, but when I do that is my fave. Congrats on retiring. I am sure you are ready, but you don't really look old enough to retire! I don't even see wrinkles on you face, that is sooooooooooooo wrong!

Kathy, I am sure you had a great time scrapping with your friends. If I was up that late I would lay my head on my papers & my friends could cover me with my blankie!

Got my card done & won't mail it till Monday. Not sure it will make it by Valentine's Day???

Martica & Stephanie nice to see you!!

Marylou, keep in mind that my profile photo is now 4 yrs old...lol I have a few more wrinkles now...ugg. And, Im not waiting till full retirement age. Im going out at 60. My husband retired from the railroad. He worked there over 30 yrs so he was able to go out at the age of 60, so now I can too. Ill receive more money than if I continue working. I hope to be able to travel to see family more often and maybe go other places too. We'll see...

So glad you figured it out Stephanie!!

Everyone - Stephaine's mom, Kristie, wants to do the Valentine swap but she isn't tech savvy so Stephanie is going to communicate for her until she can set Kristie up with an account and show her how to navigate the site.
We had a couple people join yesterday so I will finish drawing names tomorrow night. So the swap will close tomorrow at 2 pm (no more names).

Marylou, I haven't even started my card. So, i know mine will not get to it's destination by Valentine's Day. However, in my mind Valentine's Day is all month, so I'm good.

No one came to put in the front door and finish all the little things that need to be done. I'm going to make a list of what needs to be done and email that to the Project Manager.

I have been moving back downstairs. The furniture has been built for the office/scrap room. Just a few things left to do there. I'm going to start putting my craft supplies away. Hopefully by Tuesday I can use my scrap corner. Yes, I'll post a picture.

RO, retiring at 60 how awesome for both you & your hubby. Traveling will be fun. Do you have an RV?

Karen, you are right February is the month of love so we are good!

I was so excited last night at the Olympics, a 17 year old young man from Silverthorne CO took Gold in the snowboarding! WOOHOO!!! Since I live in CO & know exactly where Siverthorne is I was doubly excited!!

Went out of town this weekend to see dgs play basketball--and older dd went into hospital with a blood clot (Kathy, the one you know). So, a little off schedule, but hope card will go out tomorrow.

BTW--she's doing fine, just has to use blood thinner the rest of her life.

I doubt if anyone but Kathy knows her--she doesn't scrap and has never been on this site, but Kathy met her at a crop a couple years ago. DD didn't scrap, but she read and enjoyed the company!

*Click on the picture you want to link in your gallery
*On the right side of the page, under "Add to Favorites", click on "Link"

Good morning ladies!

All that needs to be done is the second coat on my front door. It has been humid, so it has taken longer for the paint to dry. I am slowly bringing stuff down from the attic and putting it away. Even though we are done with the rebuild, it is going to take time to get back to a normal running household. Whatever normal is.

Hi angels. Im surprised with as many of us that are participating that theres not more chatter and displaying of our cards. My card was the first one sent out, I hope it landed ok and that its recipient is doing well.

We're getting buried with snow here and more is coming with deep cold...brrr and yucky-poo. I always worry about power outages during such storms. In times like this, I REALLY miss having a fireplace.

Hi Karen. We've had lots of above normal temps here too. Then we sometimes get this horrible kind of cold thrown in. We're all so mixed up, even the geese dont know which way to fly!

Id love to visit you. Why do you have to live so far away?

I was out sick again all last wk. Im feeling lots better now, so Im going in to work for a while. I'll be the only one there. I want to get some things caught up. I only need to walk next door. Itll be nice to move about and to chatter with the residents.


C ya later...

Ro, I think your snow is heading our way! Not sure how much though, but you definitely sent us your wind. It has been bad for two days now. Glad you are feeling better!

Karen, 80 how nice, but a tad warm for this time of year. I think our weather has been really messed up this year.

I have been under the weather as well & have to go to an ear, nose & throat specialist today. My ears have been bothering me...always something!

Hope you sweet angels have a blessed day!

Hi Marylou ohh boy, the wind has been horrid lately! Today, thankfully, its been pretty calm. Not sure of the actual amount of snow but when I walked over to work earlier, the undisturbed snow was nearly a foot deep! I think thats plenty but Mother Natures not quite done yet with it yet.

I hope your ears feel better shortly!

Checking in to say hi to my angel friends. So happy to see that you continued on with February. And such a lovely idea to swap valentine cards.

I have been so busy lately. I was at my grandmas for almost two weeks to help her out. She's been getting stronger! Thank God. Hopefully she will continue to get stronger and not have a relapse. My uncle (her baby) got married on February 11th so I was busy helping out with the wedding as well. But oh it was a joy!

I also spent a few days with one of my friends making cards. It was such fun to make cards together with someone else. We swapped ideas and also crafting supplies. I loved it and hopefully I'll get to do it again one of these months. We were both stuck with no creative mojo so we helped each other out and now I'm on a roll again.

I'm also excited to see that we have new faces here. I would love to come back for March but I'm not quite ready yet. This is the first normal week I've had in such a long time it would be too easy for me to think my schedule would allow it only for something else to happen. I have a few relatives that are planning to move into new houses before spring and I told them if they need help I'm only a phone call away. So I could be called away for an unknown amount of time in the near future.

Thank you to all of you who are keeping this going! Love and Hugs ~Kayla

Hi angels! Ive noticed something. For a few days Ive been watching for St Patricks Day cards, looking for ideas. St Patricks Day cards are VERY rare. I figure there will be some popping up as we move into March but Im surprised there arent more out there yet. Do you girls give them out? Do people participate in the green games anymore? I remember when I was a kid and when my kids were young, EVERYONE was a little bit Irish one day a year.

We dont have any young people around, well rarely, so we really dont know whats going on anymore.

Ro - when I was on some Christian Design teams I found out that some of them got slack from people for having St. Patrick's Day stamps so they stayed away from them. I love making them and have a hard time finding images since I don't actually stamp. I wish there were more cutesy St Patty day stuff.

RO, I have never made a St. Patty's card, not because of the holiday or anything. I just am so busy with other cards I don't think about it, but yours are wonderful! I do make sure I wear green on that day so I don't get pinched! lol

Kathy, I love your new avatar. Your hair is really long & beautiful!

I've started sending out St. Patrick's Day cards to the siblings/sibling-in-laws families that have children.

I went to Hobby Lobby last night. I looked for St Pats embellishments, not much there. I bought 2 pkgs of little sparkly shamrocks...Ill call them plastic buttons. I saw 1 pkg of 3D stickers which I could actually make myself and I saw 3 pkgs of unimpressive flat stickers that wouldnt have made very nice cards. hmmm...

Marylou, we've gotten rain, but it really hasn't been too bad where I am. I still love the rain just as much as I did before Harvey.

Ro - Beth received your card but was unable to tell us as her pregnant daughter got sick and ended up in the hospital.

Lorna - Beth was to send you a card and she said it is still coming (see above).

Stephanie should have sent a card to Ro. I thought she said they went in mail so I will check with her.

Kristie should have sent a card to Martha. I thought she said they went in the mail so I will check with her.

Reference the Feb swap.

I got hold of Beth and she said she should be still sending Lorna a card. I will PM her now and see if it has gone out.

On 2/28/18 I sent a PM to Stephanie advising her that her card to Ro and her mom's (Kristie) card to Martha have not been received. I have not heard back from her. She has not been posting since Feb 20th so I have no clue where they went.

But Ro and Martha there is a card in the mail to you...might not be Valentine's but you will still get happy mail.
