Hi everyone! I need your help. LivesOnaFarm wants to continue swapping with our group. I guess I jumped the gun on this one. Is everyone okay with making 11 cards each month? If you are not okay with this please PM me!
We are back to being a group of 10. Stephanie had to drop from the swap due to personal reasons. We will all miss her! Meanwhile, Brandi's and Alicia's cards have arrived. A big, big, big hint that I need to finish my cards for the month. lol
I relized after I send my cards that I for got envelopes... so next month when I send out my next set of cards, I will make a little something for everyone since I forgot... Lost my brain I think...LOL
I would like to appoligize to everyone in all the swaps I signed up for and didnt get done and cant complete, to start with.
My son was in a major Car Accedent, he shattered his upper arm and broke his leg, the driver was killed ( his friend) when I got the called I left so fast I didnt have time to check in with everyone. In that process I dropped my cell and drove over it, so i didnt have a cell to talk to anyone either. I stayed with him in the hospital for the last 3 weeks and at his home for the last week to take care of him. He has no computer so I was unable to check in with anyone.
I am so sorry I missed swaps I signed up for and missed the date!!! But swaps where the last thing on my mind. I just got home last night and I am exhausted!!! He is doing better, able now to semi take care of him self. He had to have 3 surgries. His arm as 3 rods in it the stick out about 2 inches. and his legs has pins and screws and now just got a cast. I will be going in to Anchorage everyone to help take care of him. It was a tragic that could have been avoided. They where hit by a youg girl just not paying attention, she went thru a red light going 65 mph. she too was severly injured. I was thankful my son made it, he was in a comba for 6 days and it was touch and go for awhile. His best friend died quick and painless. Being a paramedic I know how these things look and how they go. I was able go to the funeral but my son couldnt leave the hospital.
Please for give me for the swaps I missed and i can only hope everyone will understand.
Please pray for my son that he heals well and can return to normal. He is going thru a very tuff time loosing his best friend of 18 yrs.
Oh My Goodness... I am so sorry Andee. I have two boys and can't imagine the something so scary happening to them. I know your son is dealing with so much right now. I am so sorry. God is good and he was watching out for you son. Praise the Lord he's still alive. I will keep you and your family in my prayers.
Please don't worry about the swaps. There's plenty of time for that.
Hi all, Hope you all received your cards back. I am looking forward to August's swap. There is a possiblity we may be short two swappers. Andee for her son and Keepmaking who hasn't responded to my last two pm's. I have sent an invitation to our person on the wait list, but I haven't heard from her yet. So please send 10 cards with envies for August just to be sure. I plan to mail all cards received by the 22nd so please try to send them in on time!!
Just a reminder August cards are due soon. Let me know if your not going to make it. We have a new swapper to welcome. Her name is Evelyn and she can't wait to join our group in September. She will be taking the place of "keepmaking" since I haven't heard from her. Let me know if anyone has questions.
My swap is on its way, hopefully it won't take to long. My mom did me a favor and mailed them but didn't do priority she did first class (I guess she thought she would save me a couple of $'s). I hope they are not to lame, I was waiting for my pre-order from the new Holiday Mini but my order didn't get here in time, had to come up with something quick.
Just wanted to make sure you got my email! Thank you for sending my cards back. I apologize my postage was incorrect. I will send you money for the postage with my last set of Swaps for Sept. Thank you! Brandy
Thanks everyone for waiting so patiently for your swaps to be mailed. They were sent off this morning. I was hoping for a few more swaps to make it here, but decided not to wait any longer. If you mailed your cards a little late, they will swapped out with Septembers cards.
Sorry you haven't seen me around much. I've been wanting to play. But life sometimes takes over. This last Thursday a little boy in my church was hit by a car and died. My church is small, the father is the vice-principal at the school, his mom is a wonderful person and all have many friends. Kade was running from his school to his dad at the high school and forgot to look for cars. Another lady from our church had just picked up her two kids, stopped and gave him mouth to mouth, but he basically was gone. The hardest part is getting over the last moments I had of Kade. I was teasing him about growing too tall and he should be in 3rd grade not 2nd. If he had been in 3rd grade he would have been in my Sunday School class. I remember I wanted to tease him about his freckles, but knew it was probably an over-used tease.. I will miss the little imp. He was only 7 years old
My mom told it to me like this.....
God has to plant a garden and He can't have all old flowers. He must have flowers in full bloom and flowers just starting to bloom and buds to make the garden comeplete. Kade is now a part of that garden.
Hi Everyone -- this is my first month and I am happy to be here with you. I will be mailing my cards in a day or two. We were on vacation and I just need to do my envelopes and they will be on their way.
Thanks for having me.

I am sorry to hear about the little boy. I have had one bad month too. The list is long. Anyway, I will be sending you double cards this month to make up for the last month. if anyone knows where the line is to a new life please let me know. At least where there is order and control.lol
Oh wow, I missed your post. If you like I can add you to the group today!
Terrific! Do you want me to send in a set of cards for this month? If so, please pm me your address and I'll work on them on Monday or Tuesday (work retail so I'll be working the weekend away - my next days off are Monday and Tuesday). I know how the routine works - send a SASE with my cards and all.
Happy Tuesday ladies! I just wanted to give Pam a heads up - my cards are postal. I did remember to include a couple extra stamps in the envie (they are in a small baggie). My postal lady weighed the return envelope separately and put that amount of postage on in stamps and then put it in the bigger envelope addressed to Pam so the postage amounts are different.
