Hi,
Not a good week here. My mom passed away on Friday morning (Jeanette knows this already from Facebook). She was 80 years old. We celebrated her birthday in February and she was doing good then. In April she had surgery and just never fully recovered from it. She had been in the hospital 4 times and in the nursing home a couple. She would be home about a week, then back in the hospital again. Her funeral is on Wednesday.

Joyce, the Mystery Image swap has actually been going on for - I don't know - maybe 3 years. It started when I sent identical images (6 per person) to everyone in the forest swap at that time that wanted to participate in the Mystery Image swap. I included the images in the return swap so there was no need to deal with extra postage. The idea is that every other month there is a new hostess. She chooses a stamp and stamps images for everyone in the group and when she mails her completed cards to the hostess before her, she also sends the images for everyone. Then when the cards are swapped and mailed back, everyone gets their set of images for the next round. We keep it a big secret. No one can say what the image is until everyone receives their images/cards... and no one can post their completed card to blogs/gallery/etc until the due date. It's such fun!!!

It is a closed group because the only way members get the next set of images is by participating. KWIM? And if anyone ever skips a round, they can't be part of the group any longer, for the same reason.

We like it so much that several months ago, Barb opened an Unidentified Image Swap with the same format.

I do realize that there are many new swappers in the forest now - that weren't around when we started the Mystery Image swap. It's kind of late notice for this swap, but if there's enough interest when we do the next forest swap, I could start another group by hosting the first round. Keep it in mind.

Lynn, that is just the luck, isn't it?

Barb, when does your company leave?

Well, I disappeared for a bit... put together my blog post for tomorrow. I think I'm finished with all that will get accomplished tonight.... tomorrow is another day.

Okay Forest Friends, I'm going to get off of here for tonight. I need to prepare a lesson for tomorrow's meeting, but I might be too tired to work on it tonight. We'll see. If I don't do that, I'm going to read a little while and then SLEEP! (I only got about 2 hours of sleep last night - so I'm exhausted.)

I'll see you in the morning!

Hugs!!!

Can anyone spare a prayer for me? My MIL, who is in my care, is about to drive me over the edge. The constant badgering is her way of trying to gain control-her life's pursuit. She's TRYING to start fights, she NEEDS to start fights because she NEEDS control. I'm out of patience and feeling trapped. I can't go to my shop or ride my bike because caring for her is taking over everything.

Good Morning Forest Friends!

I hope you have all had a good night's sleep by the time you see this post! Me? It was another sleepless night for me. hmmmmmm..... methinks this is getting rather tiresome! Oh well, maybe I'll sleep tonight.

Mae, it's good to see you!

Tarah, no, we're still gathering ideas for the next theme. I'm thinking we'll gather ideas until Wednsday morning; then on Wednesday we'll vote to see what is chosen. How does that sound? You can find the list of ideas already suggested on Post #4 of page 1 of this thread.

Jan, I am so sorry your MIL is being such a challenge. It really is a thoughtful and noble thing for you to provide her needed care, especially since she makes that difficult. You are in my prayers!

Janet, I am praying for you, too, as you deal with your mom!

Hugs for all!!!

Happy Sleepy Monday. It was a great long weekend. Back to reality today. DD9 is starting Girl Scout day camp today. I'm off to work, then ortho appt and grocery shopping before camp pick up.

My friend's youngest son (8 on Saturday) is at sleepaway camp for his first time. I've got to think of something fun to send him for his birthday at camp. For now I'm going to send him as many cards as I can. I hope he has a great time. He was a little worried on Saturday about getting his things together. He's an easy going kid though and his best friend is his cabin mate, so I think he will do fine.


See you all later.

Linda

The bowling party was great. Everyone had a great time. It was really quiet there. We almost had the place basically to ourselves until the league people came in at the end. Everyone had a blast. My daughter got some fun new gifts including some stuffed animals to add to her bed which makes her extremely happy. She is a stuffed animal collector. Now if I just knew what to get her for our gifts. She doesn't know what she wants other than a $270 ipod, which isn't going to happen. She needs to hope the price goes down for Christmas. So I have until Thursday to come up with something besides the pair of new shoes (Toms) that she already picked out.

I love the idea of doing ENCHANTED FOREST, I have so many fairy stamps that it would be awesome to use them on a swap.

Linda, Mondays can be so hectic after a great weekend. I hope yours goes smoothly. How fun for your friend's son to be at camp this week. My DD loved camp - went to 5 or 6 every summer! I always sent camp care packages with her - a little gift to open every day while she was gone. She loved that. We also mailed cards to her at the camps that allowed that (some didn't). Great memories! I'm glad the bowling party went well! Sounds like it was nearly perfect! I have a tough one to get gifts for, too - all mine wants is "GREEN presents". LOL! I know you'll come up with a plan before Thursday.

Dea, we already did an Enchanted Forest swap and we don't normally repeat a theme... I'm sorry. But one of the themes suggested for the next swap (see post #4 for the entire list) is Fairies in the Forest.

Thank you I did find it! If I get a vote it would be for Christmas in the forest because it would be nice to have some cards all made.

There are some really great ideas I hope we use in the next year or so. Thanks so much forest ranger! I hope to participate in the next frolic in the forest

Here's another idea for a theme...

Sleepless in the Forest - this could incorporate the ideas several of the forest friends have suggested (nighttime, stars) as well as critters that are nocturnal, things we do at night (bonfires, make S'mores, etc.) and so much more

morning, jci---I looked on post # 4 and like Christmas in the forest---first of all because of the the due date...secondly (and most importantly) I had just gotten a northwoods stamp of 2 deer's in a winter background...and I was experimenting in using my copics in the W range to see what wonderful softly muted colors I have gotten..

sorry I wandered....again those are my thoughts....

I also have a stamp with wolves...and they hunt at night...so there you go---I think i'm set for whatever theme...

I hear they also eat gnomes and fairies so yeah i'm set
(just kidding--about the diet of the wolves)

Have you done a holidays in the forest. Carriage rides through the forest, hanukkah candles with whimsical critters, stars, mangers, this could cover the religious and non religious celebrations.

Joyce (ashjoy)
How about its a colorful forest theme. Kits could be made in earthy colors based on something you might find in the forest? Of course there are red salamanders and orange toad stools....

How about unique celebrations in the forest?

Forest friends show their support. Could be anything from, get well, sympathy, thinking of you, cheer up ect. Remember your monthly self exams.

Janet (JanetJ) and ??? (who first suggested this?)
I can't remember who said it, but a few days ago someone suggested fairies in the forest.
We could also add gnomes, elves.....

Forest Ranger
S'more Fun Around the Campfire (Joyce's thoughts on this - It could be almost anything, what do you do in the forest? Pick wild flowers, watch the critters, listen to the birds sing, camp, sit around the fire, sing, look at all the pretty trees.....)

What's NEW in the Forest?
Participants could try new techniques or folds for their cards; use their newest stamp (not buy a new stamp, but one of their most recently purchased stamps); or if they have a new puppy, use a puppy theme, a new baby, a baby theme, a new degree, a school/graduation theme.... etc. Recipes Cards could be a new recipe they've recently tried, or one they want to try. There are so many possibilities!

Sleepless in the Forest - this could incorporate the ideas several of the forest friends have suggested (nighttime, stars) as well as critters that are nocturnal, things we do at night (bonfires, make S'mores, etc.) and so much more

Gael (mamadwawa)
Nighttime in the Forest as I can picture lots of fun brayered backgrounds and silhouettes.

Elayne (elayne)
Forest Animals....deer running thru the woods, owls in trees

Lynn (FMcrafter)
Stars in the forest - Now this could be stars in the sky...light from a firefly...light from a campfire....or the star could be you fav critter

Elke (tropicalsmiles)
whats not in the Forest
Flowers of the Forest
Animals of the Forest

Jessika (jessthenurse)
mythical woodland creatures... elves, gnomes, etc.

Jan (JampsterStampster)
Fantasy in the Forest

Kathleen (1855ward)
Christmas in the Forest

Tarah (Sabian77)
Frolic in the Forest

Exclamation FYI

Forest Friends, we are currently taking suggestions for the next forest swap. You'll find the list on post #4 of this thread! If you make a suggestion, it will be added to the list. We will gather suggestions until 10:00 P.M. (CST) Tuesday, July 9.

If you need to see the list of previous forest swaps - we don't repeat themes - you will find that list on post #5 of this thread.


Beginning Wednesday morning and continuing until 8:00 P.M. (CST) on Thursday, we will VOTE for our favorite. WE WILL NOT BEGIN VOTING UNTIL WEDNESDAY MORNING!

The theme for our next Forest Swap will be announced Thursday night - sometime before 10:00 P.M. (CST)

LOL! It's too early to vote, Lynn... we won't vote until all the ideas have been suggested.

And I feel your pain... I haven't been sleeping well at all since getting home from Thailand. I go to sleep about 11:00 or 11:30, and like clock work, wake at 1:00. Can't seem to go to sleep again. UGH! Last night, I read from 1:00 until nearly 4:00, finished my book... then dozed until 4:45... got up at 5:00.

Good Morning All!

Jeanette--Rebecca's sister, nephew, his wife and son stayed over last night and are headed out around noon. Her cousin Pam from Nebraska is here until tomorrow afternoon.

It is raining a bit this morning, but is supposed to be back into the mid 80's again today--and probably very humid.
