Just got back from seeing Lincoln with my history buff 22yo DS! WOW; it was a really good movie and if Daniel Day Lewis doesn't win the Oscar then something is wrong!

Oooooooohmygoodness - our power was out for 22 hours! Was so worried about our Thanksgiving leftovers, and the contents of our freezer, but everything seems to have survived.

Our dinner was fun, even though we had to sit in the dark! The power went out at 1, so really all that affected was my stuffing (moved from the crockpot to the oven) and the potatoes (mashed by hand instead of in the mixer). We had 21 people altogether, but there are enough leftovers for a few more meals. The kids loved having pumpkin pie for breakfast.

Can anyone tell me how or direct me to a site where I can find how to change the URL for, lets say, my gallery on SCS so that when I put it in my signature info it just says "My Gallery" instead of the long URL. I went to ShortURL.com but couldn't find anything there about how to customize it to what you want to call it.
Does that make any sense, I am very illiterate on this stuff, so any help would be appreciated.

Here's the code:

Start your link with [ url= (but remove the space)

then copy your link, and end it with ]

Write the text that you want to show...

then end the whole thing with [ /url ] (again, remove the spaces)

Pat...when you are in your "edit signature" box:
...Type "my gallery".
...Using the left mouse button, highlight "my gallery".
...Then above that box you're typing in, there are two rows of icons. On the bottom row toward the right is one that is an earth with a chain link on it. Click there.
...A new box will pop up. There is an "http://" already there and it is highlighted. Do one of two things. Delete that one and paste in the address you want, or use that one and type in the address. Just make totally sure that you don't have two "http://" in the address.
...Click "OK".
Be sure to save your signature when you're done.
That's all there is to it. Easy peasy!

I watched the You Tube demo of the triple layer card and had alot of fun making it. I used a huge stamp so I just touched up the card edges a bit. Here's Pine Cone

22 hours without power would be a challenge. Sounds like a thanksgiving to remember.

Heather, thanks. I've been wanting to do that too. Is this the same way you do the one word (or two) links to a card you've cased? Say for the FS or QFTD. Or even the IC site.

Aw Connie, that's a shame. I'm on my 3rd set of B plates! You didn't keep the white plate in did you?

No video but basic instructions are in THIS post from when it was the TLC a while back.


Picture guide to editing and formatting signatures in the Help section of the site: Splitcoaststampers - Help
Karen, Dina's [url=... formatting will work in gallery write-ups.

Yikes, Dina! I can understand the worry over leftovers; my parents once lost their power on Christmas Eve. Glad it all worked out in the end.


Busy weekend here, but I don't seem to have missed too much!

Bugzi...the instructions I posted don't work in the description area of your card posts. SCS doesn't give us the option. You need to follow Dina's instructions:

Copy and paste your link.
Put this text in front of your link [ url= except don't put the space between the bracket and the u.
Put a close bracket ] after your link with no spaces.
Then type the text you want to be your link (example: This Card)
Then after your text for your link type [ /url ] but again, take out the spaces.

BTW, the reason we type the spaces in the instructions and tell you to take the spaces out when you're doing it in real life, is that the computer will read those instructions and act on them as if we really wanted it to! The result is weird. Trust me.

Thanks Diane and Dina for the URL instructions. I've been wondering how to do that for ages and just never had any place to ask. You guys are the greatest! I will go do that this afternoon. Off to church soon so have to get off here.

I love parmesan, breadcrumbs and garlic on broccoli. My turkey day veggie casserole uses a velveeta cheese sauce and it has ritz crackers on the top. there's nothing healthy about it but that's on the top of hubbie's must have list. I don't think I even tasted it this year.

Hope everyone enjoyed their day, my DH just left for work & he'll be home around 3:00 then he'll have to start smoking our turkey. I told him I'll watch it while he takes a few cat naps.
well there's probably a billion cards posted here. does she have a favorite stamp or brand she wants to use? at least that could get you to a gallery to see what's been done with the stamp. or you can go to the Christmas and winter galleries for inspiration.

I like a tree scene too, and I like it embossed too. great minds...
here's a card I made that's pretty simple to make - maybe some inspiration for your friend

moved to Florida from NJ, it never quite feels or looks like Christmas weather wise but I sure do love the warmth and a row of palm trees wrapped in lights looks really cool.

Thanks Quiltz, I'll be trying today when I do the FS.

Boy am I behind on this thread! Congrats to all the latest winners! I have been busy with a craft sale this weekend (made $400 profit!) and I have two classes this week plus work and a huge card order. I will try to drop in when I can. Have fun all!

Thanks, Chris! You may be right about crushes - I still remember the one I had on my sixth grade teacher. I wanted my mom to marry him!

Whooo was that lady in blue who popped in and popped out again? Guess I'll have to keep checking this evening to see if she really comes by again.

Connie - your quilled snowman is adorable! I used to do some quilling but haven't even thought of it until you mentioned it the other day. He's really cute! Good that you can exchange ideas with your friend. I have one friend who loves stamping and all crafts as much as I do - unfortunately she lives 1600 miles away. But with our cell phones and computers we have worked our way through a few projects over the years.

Good to see that Lydia did pop in today. I'll check back later to see what's happening.

Thanks Pat! I'm looking forward to making more things. I've always wanted to try it just got nervous thinking it was hard. I'm glad my friend is getting back into card making, my last friend that I used to it with passed away 3yrs ago, I think we did more laughing than card making.

I'll see you later when Lydia comes back, I have to run & get the girls some snow boots because we are expecting snow tomorrow.
