Just got a PM back from Kay and the Oct 1 date is a no go at least for Lynchburg. Kay is going to check with her church and see when it may be available. She will get back to me and I will get back with everyone!
My name is Deanna...Btw, I got to the Lynchburg area frequently and occasionally to South Boston. My in-laws run a resturaunt in Altavista so I am up that way at least once a month, typically more. And I have a lot of genealogy research I do in the South Boston area. A get together in Oct. sounds neat!
DEANNA, I love roanoke, spent one summer their living with my mom and sending my son to the Achievement Center. It was so fun. They had an Emerson Creek Pottery outlet in the city market and I loved it. We would go to the orchard place in the fall and get fresh apples. Glad to meet you. Corynn, hows the business going? see ya susan
You can count me in for the Lynchburg crop. The only weekend I am not available is the weekend of the 8th (I think that is the Sat. of that week...lol), I am hosting a Lillian Vernon party at my house that Sat., but it is a 1 in the afternoon so if it was that evening I can probably still make it. Just let me know when ya'll have a date and such
luvs,you can hide in my sb suitcase i am going to take with me,i have to check it though or they will confiscate my dollar treee scissors. i will have lots of time to sb at night and jamkuhns told me there was a HUGE sb warehouse in dallas that she was willing to make a three hr drive for. arrive early leave broke as heck. i posted and posted and posted and NOBODY would come save me.
oh, you know that luvs would be swcuzzing herself up real tight so not to bend the bazzil and the nice pp. I would buy an extra for all the loot we will bring back. you all really ought to drive down and shop with me. I think brian and dwight and the kids would understand. Mommy's addiction treatment.
I'm here, kinda...lol. I was in NC on Tues and Weds visiting my parents and we are leaving Friday night for Pinehurst, NC for a big family reunion weekend thingy. On a normal week (if such a thing exists) I am off and on the computer all during the day and then usually after 8 or so at night. I really want to go to Danville and check out the HL but I guess I need money before I go right...lol. I am looking foward to Oct. now because I have so many things I want to try but need ya'lls guidance..lol...I really want to get better at stamping, do we have anyone here that is really good at it?
I have tons of stamps and I love it, but I always forget about them. Becky does some stamp and does a wonderful job. maybe we should all bring some of our stamping stuff and try a few things. I need to contact Kay again to see what she was able to find out.
Awww, thanx Angel! I LOVE LOVE LOVE stamping! My collection is moderate,(well, not according to my DH!) but I am constantly finding new ones to add! The section at Michaels is OVERWHELMING, I just want to buy them all!!! And yes, I have paid $20 for one stamp, crazy i know! The one thing to remember is that you have to look past the stamp itself and find new ways to use it and make it versatile. ex. using the stem of one flower stamp to embelly w/some other type of flower, you can even make the flower itself 3D. There are so many ways to use just one stamp!
but i would not say that I am a 'veteran' by any means!
I was reading what you said up there Rebekah...about looking past the stamp to see other uses. I think that's something I need to do! I buy stamp sets, and they are adorable...then they sit on the shelf! LOL :/
Gotta work on my stamping techniques...I am on a misson! hehheee.
I went to a cardmaking class and we did 5 different techniques using stamps.gosh it was fun. we misted some with water.we stamped on and stamped off and we used one color and then multiple colors on the same stamp. the cards were awesome and this would be so easy to adapt to sbing. i am not so into cardmaking cause i hate to give my 'creations' away but the few stamps they used had many different uses,even i was amazed. so i am going to play today doing this. seeya
yep, she had wonderful cards and we got 10% off anything we bought that day. i loved,loved,loved the classes and the cards turned out gorgeous. i do have cardmaking anxiety but she and the other lady walked us all through it. i bought a snowflake stamp and flower stamps and we did use some glitter that came in a tiny bottle and used it for accents on the tip of the snowflake,girl it was sosoooo professional,artsy looking. i am hooked. if we dont sb we can make cards. my rep would love that. susan
You are right but now with gas, i dunno...anyhow have a great day. I have ozzie and gotta get to work. hey luvs ,missing you guys,corynn, lets all wish angie/dglaml and kay a big old hope everybody is feeling better. these va gals have had it ruff. hugs everybody. susan a
i is here, i is here, i have a new laptop and cannot get the mail to do right, i am about ready to toss this dell out the door. it will not let me email stuff and i sent a survey 5 times last night. i cant figure it out and does anybody but me hate the keyboard on laptops. you know we all need to get together. i know kay has been sick. is there anywhere else you guys would like to meet up and scrap. i can do it after the 14th of oct. or before the 27th of this month. i dont want us to miss out on meeting each other and scrappin. lets do it. rebekah, come on and put on your best organizational skills. see ya
that would work well for me too. i dont want to put any more responsibilities on kay, she has been way sick,so i will look for someplace that we can get together in lynchburg and crop. i still know some folks from when my sister lived there for years and years. i am gonna do this. i want some INSPIRATION for some homemade goodies. i keep reading about your swaps corynn and i want to make some goodies and get some goodies. see ya
Organizatonal skills to the rescue! Actually, Luvs and I were discussing this yesterday. Thinking maybe Michaels would have a room that we could get? Also, my sisters go to Liberty U, maybe they know of a conference room or something that we could use one Sat? We definately need to settle on a date, I know that my DH is going on a business trip the w/e of the 14th so I'm out for that w/e. So far as I know, any other w/e is OK (xcept next w/e) We'll get it together!
Checking in, I'll be away this w/e. Had an idea for our L'Burg swap...what about a croppers challenge? Thats when you give each cropper a list of specific tools/embellies and they have to make a page with only those things. What do you think?
Well dangit...things are pretty booked up so far for me. The weekend of the 22/23 would work for me though---the week before is nuts, and the last week in October looks scary---in more ways than one! LOL.
i have tried pming her, to offer help but havent heard from her, i know she had a swap going and things were rough at home, her son was sick. I am not sure what happened, i offered to help her but never got any response. I havent heard from kay either for a while. i will try pming her and see what is up for the church room. if not what would you all like to do. i can try and find a conference room for cheap. let me know. susan a
I love lynn, she is wonderful. she has the best attitude and very helpful. i want to hire her in may. thanks for the info. susan. am still loving dallas. made the cutest round book last night. i am now queen of the inks, thats quinks to the class folks. miss you guys susan
So now that I am thinking about it...are you all interested in shopping? I mentioned it to Susan already, but I have started selling SB goodies through Memoryworks--and other products as well. I have a ton of new stuff.
If yes, LMK...I can start ordering stuff to bring to the crop. Also LMK if you need anything special.
I love memory works. i will definitely be up for the 22nd. now i know what to bring to a crop. EVERYTHING!!!!!!!!!!!! I loved croppin at sbwarehouse but felt like a bag lady without my CIS. see ya. susan a
me too, me too. when angie angel and gina and I got together, i just looked and talked. they all laughed at me. no scrapping just looking. yesterday at the store i had no one to talk to and made lots of progress. go figure.
OH MAN!!! I really want you to make it Angel! Is there another day we could do it do you could come too? I am not sure how together our plans are...but if we had some more time we could prolly get a room and everything.
i am thinking whatever. i am so confused with class. i will rework the date and organize this IF we can agree on a date. let me know. sorry for all the unorganization on my part. this texas class has addled my brain. susan
thanks corynn, i know we can figure this out. i have been configuring screens,tables,results,legend,cluster results all week and i am literally SICK of this stuff. i will be so happy to set foot in virginny and get back to being a nurse. susan a
Ahh Susan...I WISH you could be my nurse! I really, really need a good one! I am having a hard time with pain in my leg. They aren't sure if it's nerve, disc, or what. I have had to do a slew of different things....and nothing is really working! It's making it hard to do my day to day routine with a busy toddler
Ahh well, I am SO grateful for my online VA buddies
i had severe pain and was told to have surgery, ended up with a great chiropracter who fixed me up and i have been mostly pain free for two yrs. do what the docs tell you too and take care of yourself. does a heating pad to your back help? hugs susan
