Good Morning---checking in from a coffee shop in Cambridge, WI--on my way to Madison to see what is new at Archivers. I met the guys in Waterford this morning for breakfast and I am meeting LJ for lunch!

I hope you have a great day!

Happy Friday!

I have a few errands to do this morning as we have our annual Christmas Party tomorrow night for friends--22 are coming. I have some grocery shopping to do and then a couple of things to make--mini cheesecakes and put a roast in the slow cooker for shredded beef sandwiches. I also hope to spend some time in the craft room.

Have a great day!

Good Morning--hope you are having a great Sunday.

Our party last night was very nice--lots of laughs, good food and friends! Everything is already back in its place. I am working on sending out our Christmas Cards today--they will be postal tomorrow. It is a bit of a short week for me as I am headed to San Antonio on Friday for the National AD Convention and will not be back until the 19th. I love that city as the Riverwalk is so nice and the temps are usually good too. I am looking forward to the trip and the convention--I am going to start a term on a new committee that was formed, so that will be interesting.

I will take my laptop along, but if some of you can keep this thread bumped and answer any questions, that would be great! If any cards come during the time I am gone, I will post when I get back. I will also add any new swappers whenever I get online. Thanks!

Hi all! Storming here today. No church which I miss. But then didn't want to go to town and not make it home either!
Haven't been on SCS lately. Just too busy! I thought of Jeanette and her 20 plus trees and you Barb and your 18 trees and thought I needed another! I also have a friend who has 3 trees.
So I bought one yesterday. Do you believe they were out of lights at WalMart??? It is only Dec. 9! DH went to Target and said they had loads of lights so he found some for me.
Well today I have to finish decorating the trees, make dinner, and make Christmas and birthday cards.
Have a good day all!

Hi everyone! I took a couple of days off to bake cookies. I am getting older (and have back issues) and it is hard to get them done on the weekend, so I decided to use a couple of vacation days.
Have a good Monday!

I has been kind of quiet in the threads the past week or so as everyone gets ready for Christmas. I want to post a link to a thread about a Ronald McDonald House swap that was just started. Here is the link: New and Open--Ronald McDonald House Of the Month Swap 2013. The way this swap works is that each month, someone who has a RMH in their area that they have adopted, is a hostess and will receive 12 cards of various themes from each swapper. The swapper is donating all cards and will not get any in return. The hostess is then going to take all of the donated cards to their local RMH for the families and staff to use. We would love to have you join us--pick a month or two or even try to commit for the entire year. The cards do not all have to be the same, so if you want to use some of your "stash", that works great too. Each month the hostess has some suggested themes of cards she would like to take to her house.

Please feel free to check out the thread and if you have any cards you might want to donate, please send them to that hostess in a month you choose. Thanks for helping us out! You can PM me if you have any questions or you could ask Linda, as she started the thread.

Hello Ladies--hope your Thursday is going well. I have had a great day--went to breakfast with the "boys" this morning, got a haircut, stopped at the LSS to pick up our winter swap of 18 cards and then I went to my demos house for a holiday open house--a couple of make and takes, some great soups and a cute hostess gift of special hot chocolate! I finished packing for my trip to San Antonio and I am sure I will be in bed early tonight as we need to leave the house by 4:30 tomorrow morning. I am taking my laptop along, so I will check in when I can.

If any cards come while I am gone, I will update the end of next week. If anyone wants to join, I will add next time I am online. If anyone has a question, I am sure someone here will help. Please keep this bumped as needed. Thanks!

Hello Ladies--checking in from the lobby of the Marriott River Center in San Antonio.................... The flights were just fine, other than being awake since 3:00--and I am about ready to crash! I had a meeting today and went for supper right along the Riverwalk and sat outside! Awesome Mexican dinner--chicken breast covered with shrimp, mushrooms and a sauce--could not finish all of it. I will be eading to my room in a bit and will sleep well I hope--I did change rooms as the first one was backed by the elevators and I know it would bother me.

I hope you had a good Friday!

Good Morning--I am in the hotel restaurant, enjoying fresh fruit for breakfast before heading to the mall this morning. It is too convienent--right next to the hotel.............. They have a Macy's--one of my favorite stores! I have an afternoon meeting and then a group of about 20 people from Wisconsin are headed to dinner and then a river boat tour of the riner--all of the twinkling lights are so pretty. I have a nice view of the downtown lights from my hotel room.

I hope you have a great weekend!

Hi all!
I have been very lax about posting lately. Life is hectic as I am sure it is for you too! I am busy cleaning today. Hopefully I will get some candy made and birthday cards made later today.

It is Monday Afternoon in San Antonio....................... along the Riverwalk! I had a good day yesterday and closed up the hospitality room at midnight. I was in charge from 9-11, but did not want to start asking people to leave--so I just started cleaning up. A couple of vendors and a few people from Iowa were in our room with one other Wis. AD--everyone else had gone out to Howl at the Moon--a dueling piano bar.

Today I walked around a bit and visited La Villita Historic Arts Village--very cute shops. Not much else today--but tomorrow Dyna--a fellow SCS'er is picking me up and taking me to lunch and to visit San Antonio Arts--a rubber stamp store--YAY!
