Classy Crafters Blog Group * ROLL CALL Nov 2012 *
 
Since our fearless leader has stepped down and everyone seemed amenable to my stepping in, I have decided to start a new blog group thread. This is done not to confuse or forget our roots but for the ability to always be able to edit this front posting as we add or remove blogs as needed.

We had agreed to keep the group small for ease of managing our time and commitments so we won't make any changes there.

Requirements are simple:

*Update your blog at least once a week
*visit each member's blog at least once a week- preferably twice
*encourage and support each other in our creativity
*optional (send birthday cards, get well cards, etc as desired to members)
that's it!
*Make sure you list yourself as a follower on each blog in this group
*Make sure you add a blog list with our blinkie/clip art to your side bar

We will keep the same name and blinkie because well, it rocked!

Members:

Leslie Tattered Scraps
Laurie Hiding in my craftroom
Martha Creating is Fun
Sheree Just the 2 of us
Cassandra Altered for Him
Bella BootyBella Designs
Jeanette Cre8tive Play: It's Cheaper Than Therapy
Molly Miss Molly Creations

Note: I have changed my blog URL and wanted to make sure we all had current URLS on our posts and blog rolls on our personal blogs and to see if we can breathe life back into this blog roll with more challenges and more activity on everyone's blog!


My blog URL has been corrected above. Please let us know and I'll correct it here as well.

LaLatty 06-05-2010 02:07 PM

I found you :) Thanks for starting a new thread!

FallnPetal 06-05-2010 02:22 PM

One down, eight to go! LOL Good to see you. I'm getting adjusted after getting back last night from The Great American Scrapbook Convention in Arlington, TX. Had such a great time! Now I'm ready to reorganize my scrap-space and find homes for all my new toys!

bella013175 06-05-2010 02:38 PM

Hi Leslie,
I would like to take a spot if you have room!
Thanks so much,

FallnPetal 06-05-2010 03:24 PM

So glad to have you join us!

FallnPetal 06-05-2010 03:27 PM

Let's make sure we have your real first name for our posting page. Everyone wants to get to know one another as though we're neighbors.

bella013175 06-05-2010 03:31 PM

It is Bella - sorry about that!
Thanks so much for taking me on!
So do I just create a blogroll then with the Classy Crafters Blinkie? Where do I get this from? Super excited as this is a great group of talented ladies and I am thrilled to be part of it!!!

Dandylionslayer 06-05-2010 03:34 PM

here here here!!!!

Enjoying finally sunny day for my favorite girl. She turned two today. God help me tomorrow having 8 toddlers over for a little Einsteins themed party. Hope it doesn't rain.

FallnPetal 06-05-2010 04:04 PM

Bella! So good to meet you. Yes, start a blog roll on your blog.......and you can find our blinkie on our old thread (which is referenced at the bottom of the new original post here).

Now, for me to figure out how to get that blinkie someplace others can get to it here. Hmmmmmm. More homework!

Forest Ranger 06-05-2010 05:11 PM

Is there still room for a member of this blog group? I'd love to join it!

FallnPetal 06-05-2010 05:32 PM

You'll round out our 12 member team again and we're glad to have you! If you have any questions, ask away, otherwise, jump in and enjoy!

KAcopan 06-06-2010 03:29 AM

I was thinking this too. In my other blog group we did a questionnaire to help get to know each other better, and it had address' etc on it too. Do you want me to do one for this group?

ETA: I've just updated my blog list and realised that for some reason I didn't have Jamie added before. I am so, so sorry! You are now added and I am following you. Sorry again!

Dandylionslayer 06-06-2010 08:17 AM

I see how it is :D

LaLatty 06-06-2010 05:13 PM

Hi everyone! Welcome to our new friends and I'll update my blog list with your blogs as soon as I can get the kiddos to bed.

LaLatty 06-06-2010 08:40 PM

I just added Jeanette and Bella to my blog list and I'm following your blogs as well :)

Forest Ranger 06-07-2010 03:14 AM

Thank you, LaLatty. I'm going to check out and follow all the group members blogs today... and put the links on my blog, too.

FallnPetal 06-07-2010 10:44 AM

I've updated my blog with our new members as well as my adventures at the recent Great American Scrapbook Convention. Now onto work; I have a ton of jail mail to get out this week.

LaLatty 06-07-2010 12:51 PM

I just visited everyone's blog. Laurie hasn't updated in awhile- hope everything is okay, Laurie.

Kel, I love that book you made for your friend. I'm sure she loved it!

Forest Ranger 06-07-2010 01:49 PM

WOW! I just added the links to the sidebar of my blog and then went and checked out what everyone has been working on. You ladies are incredible!!! I love the projects, cards, stories, and such!

I've also become a follower of your blogs.

This is going to be incredibly fun! Thank you for letting me be part of the Classy Crafters!

tamcan 06-07-2010 07:12 PM

Dandylionslayer 06-08-2010 07:10 AM

LaLatty 06-08-2010 08:00 AM

I'm off to update my blog (as long as the kiddos are going to behave :))

KAcopan 06-08-2010 09:51 AM

lol!

FallnPetal 06-08-2010 10:51 AM

Yes that's on my list of things to do..........now how to do that? That's the question. Did we have a link or what? I think I saved it to my desktop then used it in my blog. I'll figure something out!

FallnPetal 06-08-2010 11:08 AM

Here's the badge for the newbies ......

Forest Ranger 06-08-2010 11:22 AM

Thank you! It's a cool badge!

FallnPetal 06-08-2010 11:35 AM

Glad you like it! A wonderful legacy from our founding leader.

Now to some questions today....as I work diligently (well sort of) in my craft studio/ministry office to get some organization going, it occurs to me that I spend so much time on swaps that are due I barely have time for fun creativity, its almost become a job! How many bloggers out there are swappers as well?

I'm honestly thinking of giving up swapping for the rest of the year to spend more time on my own books/cards and projects because swaps are just taking away from what I really want to focus upon.

Anyone's thoughts?

KAcopan 06-08-2010 12:32 PM

i'm a swapper... i used to be constantly working on swaps with a little bit of business here and there and like you, found that i didn't have time for myself. now that business has picked up, i had to sit down and re-prioritize and realized that after business, i wanted it to be me time, and then swap time. but i can't give them up completely... i still have a few swaps queued up but after that i think i'll just do one here and there. maybe a few times a year instead of the 1-2 a month thing i had going for the first 1/2 of the year.

one major thing i realized is that when you stop swapping so much, you realize how much you spend on postage alone!! another good reason for me to step back!!

mezzer41 06-08-2010 12:55 PM

Here is the questionnaire I have for us. It's a combination of the question of the days from Carla and the questionnaire the other group I am in did. If you all e-mail your answers to me I will put them all onto one document and e-mail them out to everyone.

Forest Ranger 06-08-2010 02:17 PM

I complete my questionnaire and emailed it to Mary Kate! I can hardly wait to read everybody else's.

FallnPetal 06-08-2010 03:10 PM

Finished spreading some love for this group! Now onto my other blog group so they don't feel left out!

KAcopan 06-08-2010 06:04 PM

emailing you right now mary kate (do you have a nickname you go by or does everyone call you mary kate?? just asking because your blog/email is "MK")

mezzer41 06-08-2010 11:55 PM

Yeah, I go by MK or Emkay. They're both the same but Emkay looks better written down lol.

tamcan 06-09-2010 01:04 AM

Hi. I'm a little behind will surely catch up today. after I get some sleep. It's 4:00 am here and I haven't been to sleep yet....

Forest Ranger 06-09-2010 03:09 AM

Yikes! I hope you're able to sleep in this morning, Tam.

I like emkay! Very creative!

Forest Ranger 06-10-2010 06:06 AM

Good Morning! Thursdays are fun on my blog. This summer I'm going to yard sales... I actually do that every summer... and I've challenged myself to buy something that I can use in a card creation each week. It can be anything! I'm happiest when it isn't an actual paper-crafting item, although I have purchased those, too. On Thursday I post the creation... It's my Treasure Hunt post. If you check it out today, I hope you'll like it! ;)
