I was at Lonestar two days ago..the place was a madhouse. She's done a nice job of labeling the Bazzill. she finally listened and put the good stuff in! and she has all of the foam alpha stamps...except Creative Imaginations. she's finally addressing the serious scrappers!

Wow that stinks! My 2 graduated from k yesterday too! To top that off my boy twin got sick a few hours after graduating and then my baby girl (ok not so much a baby)discovered that she will be losing first tooth! I was not expecting that. Thought I had another year because all my older ones did not get teeth until they were 12mo. and the oldest lost his first this past year right before he started 2nd grade. And learned that DH may be taken off service where he makes great money and gets a company van, which will mean less money due to less overtime, and no more transportation for me(we have only one car--van actually).

Dot -

That is a traumatic day I bet it was interesting riding in the car while on the flatbed. Did he even stop to ask if you wanted to be towed or did he just hook you up and go? LOL

My daughter's graduation was GREAT! She did so good and was so cute! She was in the front row too

Sky I asked Kenzie if she knew twins in the am class and she doesn't. Maybe our kids will be in class together next year! That would be fun, we could take them to school and then scrap together! Sorry to hear about your DH. We only have 1 car too so I know the sadness of being without transportation I hate it and beg my DH to let us get a beater but he says we can't afford it with insurance and all.

Sounds good about Lonestar. I was going to go there yesterday with my DD (it is one of our fave places right up there with Joanns (which we did visit)) but I didn't have any money and am always too tempted to spend what I don't have when I go there and see all the new good stuff

Chandra when is the new store opening? Is it a good one? What do you know?

So, I've told three people about the Saturday crop. I think one is a definite, one is a maybe, and third is a "I forgot about it". How many people do we need to reserve a room? Has anyone gone in and done so? Do we need to give them a number ahead of time? Should we post something outside the thread so people who don't come in here will know about it, or will we be snobby and let the snoozers be the losers

Oh, and just to let y'all know.... don't make fun of me at the crop, or I might beat you with my purse. Instead of buying one of those fancy shmancy totes on wheels, I've decided to use a suitcase for my scrapbook stuff. I have a big one on wheels. If I hear ANY laughter from the peanut gallery... I'll roll it over your big toe.

I might just have to borrow one of my dad's travelling cases on wheels...Oh my neice has a Barbie one..maybe she'll let me borrow it!

Oh. And let me rant and rave about a certain scrapbook store in Missouri City that shall remain nameless.... for now.

I went in on Sunday to buy some Chatterbox, and not only do they charge .75 a sheet for the patterned and .85 a sheet for the plain, they only had four of the rooms! I hate the way the store is set up, because half of it is set up by kind of themes, and the other half is sort of set up by brand, or by theme, or by space allowances. And the staff.... the two times I've been there I've had to listen to the staff gossip about other people or other stores, and you can hear it all over the store because the sales counter they stand at is in the middle of the store. They have an alright selection of Bazzill, but the monopacks aren't priced, and they have a small selection. And their prices are more than any other store in the area from .25 to $1 more than the other stores. I was upset. I went online to a site to buy my remaining paper (I was only able to get two of the seven rooms I needed from the CBX line) and not only did I find all of what I needed, at a cheaper price, my whole total was still cheaper than what it would have been with shipping than if I'd bought the whole line at the store. Oh. And I went in with a new Junkitz paper pack, and asked if they carried it. One of the employees goes "Oh we haven't ordered THAT in YEARS!". Nice. Really. It's only one of the hottest new lines out there with tons of matching embellishments you could be selling, but go ahead and be a snob and sit there and gossip about your customers.

I am NEVER going back there.

What the heck were you doing all the way down there anyhow?

I have to tell you that I don't feel a whole lot happier about Lonestar. Their stuff is organized oddly as well and they don't even sell the Mono packs of Bazzill let alone overcharge for it!

I have some websites I could turn you on to if you are interested. Just lmk. I just got the CBX Powder Room kit for I think $8.50 but I have to check.

Okay peeps -

I was in Lonestart tonite (I know I am there WAY TOO OFTEN). They do not have anything booked for July 16, until tonite that is because now WE ARE BOOKED!!! I have us booked up to 12 people. I didn't know how many for sure. I knew me, Chandra, Dot (maybe Yvette, maybe Judy) and it looks like definitely candledancer! That is 6 and then Chandra said she might bring along a friend or two. So I thought 12 was a safe bet

It is $2/hr per person unless you buy the yearly for $25.00 and you can buy the yearly at the time when you get there on the 16th. This is the same week as CHA so the owners will be in Boston (? I don't know I might be making up the city) to buy next years stuff so we will be set to party!

Any q's or did I do my job?

If everyone that plans on coming to chili's can check in on the 15th, I'll call Chili's first thing Sat morning. I know they don't officially take reservations, but this way they can have a head's up and have a table set up for us.

It's organized by the publisher of some scrapbook groups, and what they do is pick a project out of a book or two each month, the store puts together a kit, and you meet up at the LSS to learn how to do the project and put the kit together.

At least that's my understanding.

I finally got the computer away from dd. I'm going to try to get some scrappin done tonight. I'm working chronologically and I'm at halloween 2001. Actually, I'm finished through 2003, but l started over and redid everything because I hated what I did the first time. So now I'm trying to fix all those pics I cropped.

HEB ROCKS!! We were total formula snobs with my DD only Enfamil and with my DS I am a SAHM so we are POOR so we tried HEB formula - it works great at half the price!!!

I just got back from HEB and I have to say the prices are not much better then Krogers. Some things I saw cost MORE then Krogers! A few things were cheaper but not too much so. JMO. I think I will pretty much stick to Krogers, at least I know where everything is. One more thing I do not like about HEB is their hamburger meat. Its stringy like so when you cook it it feels funny in my mouth, the texture or something. Randells is the same way as is Super Wal-mart. YUCK!! I like mine in pieces not strings!

Did you go to the Woodlands Market one? I love that one because they have fresh sushi and the Cafe Express.

I actually don't like Krogers. I don't know why I just don't. I try to never have to go there.

Funny how one is good for some and one is good for others.

SOOOOOOOO!

I won a door prize. I won a free year's membership to the National Scrapbook Association (a $20) value. The reps told me that for an additional $20 (out of my pocket) I could purchase their goodie bag. I passed. I don't need another tshirt, and while the items in the bag were a $75 value, I decided to keep my $20....... However, if anyone wants to sign up for the NSA, let me know, and I can give you my membership number for a referral (apparently after so many referrals, I get points or something or I don't know, maybe they'll treat you nicer if an "insider" refers you, LOL I am so full of myself). I haven't looked at everything yet, but they have 10% discounts at a lot of stores, and online shops, and member only forums and galleries and whatnot.

I also won some unmounted stamps. If anyone does fishing pages, let me know. I've got some fishing stamps for ya'.

It was an okay door prize, but I was more excited that I actually won. I was walking out of the doors with my MIL who wanted to check the board to see if we won anything, and I said that I never win anything. I glanced at the board and said that I wasn't on there because there wasn't a name long enough, and I looked again and saw that they split my name up. YAY!

I was even more excited about finding out about Novel Approach in Friendswood. I think the weekend of the 18th, I am going to go down there and check it out. They have everything I've been wanting to check out including (drum roll), those Hero Arts fiber and ribbon stamps!!!!!! And they accept Michael's coupons!!!!!!!! I am so excited!!! So yeah.... that's my shizzle for wizzle.

Novel Approach? Have you mentioned that before? Is that a sb store? Are their prices worth driving there?

I have not mentioned that one before. I always forget about it. It is a sb store, but I've never been there. Their prices at the convention seemed pretty reasonable. The set of stamps I've been looking at retails for $20, and they had them for $18.50. Their pp was .60 a sheet, and their brads and clips and things (like mm) were $2.99. Not spectacular, but not crazy either.

pretty much similar to others - although I have seen Lonestar really raise their prices on some things and I have noticed they don't carry a lot of the new "cutting edge" brands (no Arctic Frog, Wild Asparagus, Scenic Route, limited BG, etc...)

That's something I don't like about Lonestar. I love Arctic Frog and I need WA for a swap, and I'm having to get it all online. I also don't care for how the patterned paper is arranged. I would prefer paper by company, but that's my POV. And that was something I liked about Novel Approach. They had a bunch of the new ones.

Yes I prefer by brand as well. One time I asked them if they had any Rusty Pickles pp and they said you just have to look around it is mixed in. Can you imagine shuffling through all of the rows of paper to find one scrap of Rusty Pickles! Scrapabilities is near by and they have it arranged by brand and they carry some of the high end brands but don't have half the space as Lonestar. Still they off some variety

When did you change your name Chandra and Why?
