I'd love a scrap to compare if you've got it. MAybe it'd be perfect.

Right now, I'm great because Imogene sent me some, but I used a sheet today...



And this is exactly why we give every baby shower we can--so we can avoid stupid games. Who wants to stop chatting with their friends to play a game they could care less about? We tend to have them answer a question when they come in for one prize and while we eat cake usually have something where they can win a prize (under their chair or something) but otherwise, we do things so that people can chat.

I tell my family NO I refuse to play I'll even use my MOM voice on them.. you invited me here to shoot the event ( which is true they will shamelessly tell me so...) and they still force me to stop shooting and play the games... ( and you know at my age I can get what ever I want or need so I dont have this big need to be the winner or then if I win what do you do with the gift?) kwim?

showers... *shudders* and cringes...

on the other hand I have an email from a gal who works around the corner from me who "wonders" if I have valentines and thinking of you cards at work. yes to V day, but can bring in thinking of you...

so... does it sound do-able... when is Easter and or Mothers day this year? ( I have not opened my calendar yet ) and... I KNOW I do not have any M's day done yet, and only like 3 or 4 Easter cards... and I dont know I can make enough to fill a booth twice my normal size that fast.
Easter is the last weekend of March this year. Mothers day is the second weekend in May.
1st question: Did you make enough at this booth last year to A)cover the booth fees and B) still make enough profit to make it worth your time
2nd question: If you don't have enough stock for the booth, do you A)have enough time to actually make enough stock and B)Do you REALLY want to half-kill yourself and make stamping become work in order to accomplish this?

I spent 30 dollars for 2 days this year... I made 495... ( that does not include the cost of materials or time to create said cards... ) most of what I make comes out of my enourmous stash... I tend to mostly buy, glue, envelopes and new dies or stamps... and ink pad refills. but, cardstock I have enough for 10 stampers for the next 10 years... ditto on printed paper... and I get lace and buttons dirt cheap second hand so...

I was thinking about doing some "mothers day" gifts... like vintage jello molds filled with vintage buttons... to take up a lot of space. and then only taking some cards not everything. and doing it say different. but, they want for the smallest space 65.00. and some are closer to 200.00... and there are only 2 on the map at that little price tag. and you have to give them your top 3 booth spot choices before you get a contract. and
no one is home to bounce this off of.

The ONE game I have played at a wedding/bridal shower that was quite fun, but works well only if it is a women only shower.
You give every person who comes in x number of tokens (use whatever - diaper pins, clothespegs, anything you want - usually the ones I've been to it was either 3 or 5 tokens.). No one is allowed to sit with their legs crossed, ankles crossed, one leg over the other etc. If you see someone with their legs crossed, you get to take one of their tokens. Person at the end of the shower (or when you cut the cake, or at the end of an hour or whatever you set) with the most tokens wins the prize.

UGH. The last few days, I have been having the WORST cravings for salsa con queso. Which I 1)can't eat, and 2)Have no idea what will work as a substitute. Hmph.

I'm watching Chicago Fire, anyway. This was the pilot episode. I wasn't paying much attention to it that first night, so I'm getting all the background on the characters tonight, lol.

ITA about stupid baby shower games. I have always refused to do them.

So, time for another card, eh? Hmmm to make a baby card or an adult birthday card (as in for grown persons, not as in something belonging in inappropriate stores that do not allow persons under the age of 18 or 21 or whatever the age is)

just sayin'

I think I underthought the card this time. It's just "there." That's okay, every card can't be exactly what I want or it loses the "discovery" factors.

ah, what I find is the ones I love best about my own... those are the ones that get very little comments haha... so betcha a nickle you will see more love on the card than you expect since its just . done. okay so, if you do one and its done then the next one or the one after that will be an Ah ha card... is the way it seems to work for me. so I do a lot of gift card sized things with the scraps as the warm up anymore...

My son just read me a statistic.

"100 people are hospitalized in the US every year trying to move their Christmas tree while naked."


I don't even want to know what would prompt someone... I just... what the heck?

another advantage to dentures.

Then again, perhaps if I had ever had my teeth cleaned in my life, I wouldn't have needed them.

Snort.

No, I would have. Bad family genes there.
