Her hubby and mine are both geocaching addicts and her boys love my kids! Don't know why...but there you have it! So I'm working on tidying up my stamp room and baking to be ready!

I've met several SCSers. Several on this thread actually. I met Jean (naturecoastcrafter) at StampFest Orlando a few years ago. Also Vicky Gould, Peggy (pegmac71), Pam (Bailmac), Kim (Luv Flowers), and several others at a stamp camp put on by Markie's Mom about four or five years ago.

If I could say poof.. I would finish them all!

There is a different challenge posted each hour on the hour.

You have 45 minutes to make a project based on the challenge.

It's really lots of fun!

I hear you, normally it takes awhile to think of an idea.

Oh, I just remembered a couple other SCSers I've met. Andrea (andreascraps), who I believe has won one of the prizes here; and Kittie (Kittie747).

Gail, great to see the photo of you and Sabrina - she's the only other SCSer I've met IRL - she and DH were here a couple of weeks ago when they came up North and we finally remembered to take a photo.

That's interesting! I've brined chicken, but it's not common here and I've never heard of anybody doing a turkey. I'm sure it keeps it a lot moister and more tasty. Me personally, I don't bother with turkey at Christmas - last time I did one was the year my mother had had a heart attack and we hosted Christmas, and that could be 20 years ago!

Yay, I was thinking of you and your DH tonight, Gail. I met DH in town after his work for kebabs, only in more of a diner than the place we went with you. I'm still sad that the Mexican I'd planned to take you to was a victim of the recession here.

So nice that many of you have been able to meet face-to-face. Great photos, and those are two good looking guys!

I have not met anyone from SCS, but I have met people from other online groups which was always fun.

Ha, that's me exactly (well just 15 coming) but I mean the housecleaning part and the kids asking who's coming. Ha ha ha. Here's to the holidays.

Hellooo everyone!

I've had a busy morning... well, day. I went to the lab for some bloodwork to monitor my blood thinner since I'm taking an antibiotic which I'm not supposed to take with the blood thinner. Then grocery shopping, which took longer and cost more than I intended. Then lunch (chicken fried rice from Chinese take out). Then laundry (still working on that). I still need to clean house because I'm having the Card Ministry Design Team over tomorrow morning.

I've missed a lot of chatting, but it doesn't look like I've missed any prize announcements.

where in FL is Brooksville? I've only been here a couple years and don't know the state too well.
I'm on the gulf coast, near Sarasota.

Hey, where's Lydia been hiding? I just went out to the dock, very frustrated. I'm so ready to leave this place. Looking forward to spending time back on here later.

I used to live on Anna Maria Island in the city of Anna Maria, but 5 hurricanes and the tourists chased us farther north--west coast, north of Tampa, Port Richey. Weeki Wachee, home of the mermaids. Any of this ring a bell? We're rural, mostly.

So far I've lost 11 or 12 lbs (we are in week . I'd like to lose 70 lbs when it's all said and done and maintain. Ive kind of adjusted my goal through the holidays to to maintain and not to gain

yes, I went to Weeki Wachee when I was a child, maybe 5 yrs old, hard to believe it's still around 55 years later.
I've been to Anna Maria a couple times to eat, it's not that far from here. Tampa's about 45 minutes to an hour away.
I lived in NJ and it was very congested, I could take a train into Manhattan in 25 minutes. So crowds are much worse there than here. AND since we've been here the hurricanes have skipped over us but have been horrible in NJ. My old neighborhood lost power for about 10 days. Can you imagine?

Catching up while I eat my (very late) lunch at my desk.
I was so lucky to meet the very fabulous Lee (and her sweet hubby) when I was in Denver for work. And I am hoping to meet Jean at the end of the year when she comes to So Cal!
I met quite a few of the old time SCS folks a few years ago when there were a couple of big So-Cal shoebox stamp events, and at CHA when they had a consumer show a few years back.
