After all our talk about selling our cards, the paralegal that I work with actually asked me today if I would make a Valentine card for her DH! I had taken in the 2 DT cards I have on my blog this week and she really liked them. We haven't really discussed yet what she wants or how much she's going to pay me for it.

Don't worry, if I ever get my Etsy shop open, I will be sure to let you all know.

I did have kind of a sad evening. Reggie came home today. Made me miss her all over again. The pet crematory sent a beautiful certificate of cremation and a lovely card with a beautiful verse inside. They also made a ceramic heart with a paw print in the middle and Reggie's name engraved on it. It has a little card with it that says the paw print was made by Shana. I'm supposing that is a live cat that they use to do that. I thought it was very sweet and touched my heartstrings. The Memorial Cat Hospital (my vet) also sent a lovely card that was signed by all the people who work there and her vet.

Oh, I updated the list on the first page of our forum with the names of all the members and their blogs. Let me know if I missing someone - but don't think I have.

I didn't think Paola was still in our group. I had taken her off my blog roll sometime in the past and she doesn't mention the group on her blog either.

Hi girls - missed the reminder emails and also had the page down for several days after some computer issues.....

I sell cards - mainly specific orders - I make all the birthday cards she needs for my daughter, and for a friend who is way out in the country on a farm - and the odd local request. DD gets hers for $2.50 each plus postage to her, and everyone else is $5 per card. I make the month ahead for both the standing orders - gives me some much needed $$$ for supplies. Sometimes it feels like work, but mostly I enjoy the challenge. I

Maxine, good for you for selling cards and having standing orders! That has to feel good to be earnign some cash for more more supplies. I'm sure my DH would love it if this hobby of mine were a money maker instead of the other way around.

Maggie, your post about Reggie had me doing a tearful "awww". How kind of the crematory and hospital to send out special cards and remembrances to you.

The below zero wind chills continue here in MN. It is so cold I keep hearing strange sounds as our deck, siding, and whatever else contract in the cold temps.

I hope to get creative today and/or stay warm. I need to get a small space heater in my stamp room!

Have a great day everyone!

Good morning Stamp Addicts.

It's a mite chilly out this morning - down to 34* It was nice to have a bit of Spring for a few days.

Maxine - that is great that you are selling your cards. My DD would expect me to give them cards to use. I actually was making them each a package of cards as a Christmas gift, but didn't get the second set done yet

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!

Oh, Maggie, I'm tearing up here reading your post. Huge hugs!

Way to go, Maxine! I think it's great you have standing orders.

I know Paola first had blog problems - for months she was unable to upload pictures to it due to a blogger error. Then she got that fixed and posted a couple of posts and then her computer got sick and had to go to the shop. I think it's still at the shop.

That being said, I don't know what her status is with this group. I'm thinking it's been a very VERY long time since we've seen her here in the thread, so maybe she has left us. I still have her on my blog list for now. I guess I'll leave her there until Lynn tells us differently. Lynn, you might want to PM her to find out her status with the group.

After the input I received, I think we'll just keep the group at this for now. I don't know about Paola. I e-mailed her before Christmas and know she was having quiet a few different issues in her life but she gave no indication of dropping out. I'll PM her again soon to see if she still wants to stay.

Maggie, that's great that you got an order for your card. And yes, that was a very tearful post about Reggie! SO nice of them to send cards though.

Also, kudos to Maxine for selling some!!! Great! We can always use that extra money for supplies.

Paige......I swear that really DOES sound like a deep freeze up there!! Brrrr...........I know you're probably somewhat used to cold temps but this sounds a little extreme! I get cold when that first norther blows through here - and don't really thaw out until about March or April! LOL! I can take the heat a lot better than cold - and it DOES get a little toasty down this way!

Shelly, hope you have a good work week - and stay warm too!

Lynn

Big discovery here.............

I don't know about y'all but I've been getting so much Spam!!! Each day I've been getting at least four or five - and on weekends, so much worse!! I noticed yesterday that most all the spam messages were on a post I did called "Christmas Cat" - so I went back and edited the post and changed the title - and bingo.......no more spam!!!!! That's what I'll start doing in the future if they hit on another one!! Just thought y'all may want to know in case you're getting a bunch of that mess.

Lynn

Lynn, please don't start me thinking about Spam. A few days ago I discovered I'd been spammed. It actually started in mid-December, but I didn't notice it since it was mostly on older blog posts at first. Then, when it showed up on a current post, I got to looking. EEK! I had well over 2,000 spam comments in about a month's time. I had to delete them all and didn't know an easy way to do it... it took a very long time.

So, I changed the settings on my blog. Now I approve every comment that is made and I also changed the settings a bit.

Lynn I know what you mean about spam and titles - I had the same last year, and now I have changed the title of the post there is relatively little spam.

This morning I (once again) entered an online draw for $100 of petrol vouchers that one of the local companies run, and I won the first draw of the day!!! Whoppee!!!!

WTG Maxine. That is fabulous!

As to spam, sounds like you're talking about spam on your blog. I've only see a couple that actually come through to my e-mail, but a lot of times, they are deleted before they even hit my blog and I don't know about them. If I see one on my blog, I just delete it.

Congrats on the win Maxine! How exciting!

I was getting two or three spams a week. Not a huge amount, but annoying just the same. So I went in to blogger and changed the setting not to accept comments from Anonymous. Now I don't get any spam. I also moderate comments as well.

My cat is keeping my neck warm, she is sitting on my shoulders - too sweet!

Go to blogger - settings-posts and comments - put a check in front of registered users

I got tired of deleting too and so far this has worked.

I've read somewhere that people with popular blogs get the most spam - so Lynn, consider yourself very popular! You too Jeanette!

Hello girls...
Yup..it is me...
My ears were burning and wondered who was
'Calling me'...so to speak...eheh lol
I just want to let you all know that I find it very hard to
Re enter into the fold of this wonderful group...
I do have the best of intentions, but seem to fail in keeping them...
It's like I've been gone forever and not sure uf I still fit in...kwim?
I must say that I did have lots of tech problems for good couple months,
That would involve my blog...now that THAT is fixed, my laptop
Contracted a virus and not sure what else, and it is still
In the shop....thankfully I can use the tablet that hubby gifted me for
My bday....yet don't think I know how to use this well either, cause I sure don't....
If u know me enough u also should realize that I am veryyyyy techno challenge
And 'scared' to try for fear of failing...
And that brings me to discuss the reason why I hardly have anyone blog
Posted on my sidebar (is that what it's called even?)....I believe thats what
Marge concern was...iamsorry..I do NOT know HOW....
I know I have some...and can't remember how I put them there either,
Would love to erase them all and reenter wproper groups too...
If this is a problem, gals, then I will bow out graciously, with thanking
Each of you for allowing me in for this long....I cannot promise to do better if I donot know how to make it better ykwim?
Yes, I could definetly benefit from taking a course for computer dummies..
And if there ever was a contest I'd besure to win it too....lol
Aside from that , I just restarted to work...and still doing alternating
Physio program for 3 to 4 hrs daily....my job is very challenging..
More so than before I left if pre injury!!!....and now my workload
Is more exausting than ever since , basically, I have to restart from the get go
Because my girls regressed very much, sadly!!! Their behaviour has been
Horrible with my subs... (unfortunatly some had no back bone)...
So, now I feel all I am doing is playing bad cop...drill sergeant actually...
Yet they do respond to me...just to give u a lil glimpse...one of them accused
My sub to physically throw her against the wall...and of course I had to deal with that....
Anyways, there is so much more and I don't usually talk about my job...
Let me just say that if it's ok for you gals to accept me remaining in the group
I cannot promise you daily cooperation...all I can do is trying...
And we all know I already let Lynn down...and you too...
Forgive my grammar, I won't recheck my post...I am actually
Exausted...did not work today but did worked out for 4 hrs...
Please lmk what you all decide and i'll gladly comply....
Thank you all...♡♥♡

Paola,
I just want to reach across the miles and give you a great big HUG!!! SO GLAD you popped back in just now - and don't you even dare think we don't want you in our group any more! We LOVE you being with us and do NOT want you to leave! PERIOD!!!!! You will always "fit in" and don't think you won't! You have not let me or anyone else in this group down.

I'm so sorry you're having all those computer issues right now. Know that's not fun at all! And don't worry about having anything on your sidebar about our group either. When you get all the computer worries out of the way, if you want to get them on there for some reason, just holler and we'll help you out on that!

We welcome you back with open arms and you just check in when you can.

Lynn

And please know you are loved!!!

Now about the spam........................ it is NOT my friend! Oh my goodness... most of it is for viagra and such.

Default Hello

Hi ladies,
I am so excited- Katie finally got the Christmas card I mailed to her. She posted a few of her cards (THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!) on HER BLOG today. I appreciate all of the support!

The cards were mailed to her work address, so everyone is oogling over all of them!

Welcome back Sweet P!!! I do stop by on occasion and try to comment when I see you have posted : )

Maggie- big {HUGS}- how nice of the vet and staff and creamatory to send you nice cards!

Oh Spam- I just moderate it always and some times I have more spam than comments- mostly cause I only post 1-2 times a week....... Hmmm I have never tried changing the names of my posts......I can look under stats and see which posts are getting lots of hits- I will try it and see what happens.

Maxine- that is sooooo cool that you sell your cards. I dod not want to start with that..... it will make me think of cardmaking as a chore....even if it isn't....

It was 7 degrees here when I left work- with a nice wind....Brrrrr But I live in Chicago, and it is the middle of winter. I would love some more snow here.

Stay warm : )
Shelly

I read your long post! So sorry that you're having all that drama now that you are back to work. Yes, computers suck a lot of the time. Mine is fairly new and I'm having all kinds of issues with it.

To be clear Paola, I never said or thought that you were doing anything with "malicious intent." That's a bit harsh. Just when I'd visit your blog, there weren't any updates until recently. So no way to tell if you were still participating.

LOL! It's funny that you are calling me "Marge" and not Maggie. There's a long story how I got to be Maggie on line, but my family did call me Marge as I was growing up.

I'm sure we would all be very happy to have you continue with the group. I hope that we'll continue to hear from you and that your own computer will be fixed soon.

Good morning Stamp Addicts! I did some image coloring last night. I have a couple cards that I really have to get done tonight. It's going to be a busy weekend.

I do have that visitation tonight after work, but I'm not intending to stay long. Just to greet my DD and the rest of the family. They will all be busy greeting other visitors. Tomorrow afternoon is the luncheon so hopefully I'll be able to chat with her a little bit anyway.

Shelly, LOVE your daughter's blog! I wish I had had more time to dedicate to cards in December and mailed her one was well ~ but life for me just stops in Dec! It was fun looking at her blog and she sounds like a beautiful and well rounded daughter - be proud mama!

Maggie ((((((( 's )))))))) That's the sweetest story that Reggie had a paw print from a friend

Big hugs and smiles all around!
It's beautiful here too and a chilly 43* NOT Texas weather! I'd love to be outside all day sitting in my lounge chair under the umbrella reading a book.

Good Morning Fellow Stamp Addicts!

Oh how fun!!! I love your DD's blog, Shelly. Going to take time to snoop through it at leisure later today. Thanks for the link.

Maggie, does your family still call you Marge or did they switch to Maggie? Personally, I lke Maggie much better. I think it is a beautiful name, not that there's anything wrong with Marge. (In fact, my Dad's sister's name was Marge.)

Kelly, it's only 5 degrees here this morning... can I come hang out with you?

Maxine, what'd ya do? What'd ya do???

Mostly they still call me Marge although if they're on FB, they call me Maggie since that's what's on there.

Yikes! 5*! That's cold.

I think it's interesting when names evolve over time.

Yep, we're supposed to get up to 10 degrees sometime today. Heat wave!!!

What did I do to win? - put my name in the draw - it's all done on line through facebook. The company has these free fuel Fridays where there is a draw every hour, and my name was drawn from the first draw!! didn't bother entering another time yesterday

Instead I spent time painting the trim on the shed/garage - one more coat today and that is finished. Then DH will work on the picket fence - and that will change colour from white to "what ever happens when he mixes two of the colours together to make enough paint" , as we don't want to have to buy more!!

I did get some work done an a card in the evening, and also an art journal piece... not happy with that, but then art journaling is supposed to be a learning curve, Right??

Maxine, your painting job sounds like it's almost over now!!! Great! Love the comment about your husband and mixing paint, etc. Jim does the same thing. Several years ago, he painted the front door and to keep from having to buy paint, mixed up something and we had a PINK door!!!! Yikes! NOT GOOD! I finally convinced him we just had to buy some paint! LOL!!

Been meaning to ask...............Maggie and Paige - how's the Weight Watchers coming along?

Getting ready to go run a bunch of errands..........will check in later.

Lynn, thanks for asking about WW. It's going well so far, but I was worried about snacking during the big game on Sunday. My oldest son who works on collecting data for research projects involving patients who get weight loss surgeries (whew! that's a mouthful!) assured me that it is okay to take a "vacation" day from dieting and then get right back to it the next day. LOL! So funny to get advice from my son! Oh, and before the big day of snacking coming up I have lost 13 pounds so far! I'm just taking it one day at a time.

Speaking of paint. We had painted our outdoor shutters a dark red, but over the years they faded to a mauve color! LOL! We didn't really notice until we replaced some windows this fall and the shutters that were under the deck stairs were still deep red and the others were definitely on the pink side! Yuck!

That's great that they have drawings to win free fuel. It is so expensive, although here in Texas it's less than most places in the States.

Great that you're almost done with the painting. It will be interesting to see what color all those bits of paint turns out to be.

I'd like to work on some art journaling, but haven't been able to fit it into my schedule yet. Yes, it is to be a learning experience and since it's your work, there is no right or wrong; good or bad. It's all good.

It's going pretty well Lynn. Thanks for asking since I neglected to mention it. I'm down 3 pounds over all, but after a day yesterday of eating a little more than usual, this morning I was down 1.2 pounds on my home scale!

That's fabulous Paige. Yes, you do need to take a "vacation" sometimes, but don't really overindulge, just eat sensibly even if they are foods that are not on your list. I'm doing a kind of "up and down" thing along with the WW. I have day that I eat a little more than my points and then days that I eat exactly or less than my points and that seems to help jump start the weight loss.

Oh, that must have been quite the sight. I guess you're really glad now to have it all painted.

Off to get some breakfast. I have a friend coming over at 9 to pick up some boxes of groceries that I took out of my storage room. They are past the "sell by" dates and some things I know I won't eat on my diet and she said she'd take anything that I didn't want.
