Hello, everyone! I'll echo Jeanette and say: Happy November! I finally got the last of our flower beds cut back, cleaned out and ready for fall. I also got the outside windows washed. Thank God for that Windex you can hook up to your hose nozzle. No way would I be climbing a ladder to do windows on the 2nd story - lol!
I've been stamping away in my free time and enjoying every minute.

I hope everyone is doing well. Anybody started Christmas shopping yet?

Have a good evening!

Hi, everyone!! Busy, busy, week for me!! I signed up my first Stampin Up demonstrator this past week!! It's my friend that I'm doing the Christmas Tags party for. I suggested she might want to consider just signing up and buying the supplies she needs for the party with her demo kit. She REALLY liked my Big Shot when we got together for making some Halloween decs for her grandchildren. When I told her she'd receive the Big Shot for FREE, she was ready to sign up!!

Getting ready for my Operation Write Home workshop on Saturday has been difficult. Not ready at all. Plus my son, d-i-l, and cute little granddaughter are coming in tomorrow night.

There is not enough time in the day!! (well, there might be if I didn't have this darn job to get in my way) lol...and I AM thankful for my job because I can spend my income on card crafting...yay!!

Good Morning Illinois Stamping Friends!

Tomorrow is my first ever Cardmaking Stack-a-Thon... I'm busy today tidying the house (it won't be as nice as I'd like, but will give it a little attention). I also need to finish up a couple of the kits.

Good luck, Jeanette---you'll do fine!! Tell us how it went. I would plan for my cardcrafting event to be a big one, but our school has a football playoff game on Saturday the same time as the cardmaking...oh well...at least I will get some made!

Pat and Jeanette, good luck with your card making events this weekend! I hope you have lots of fun. Things like that are sooo much work, but hopefully when they're over you'll both feel like it was absolutely worth the effort.

I hope everyone has a good weekend!

Good Morning Illinois Stamping Friends!

My Cardmaking Stack-a-Thon yesterday was such fun. The lady who attended was such a delight and we enjoyed crafting together. She was excited to learn some new things, too, which is great!

I was DELIGHTED to learn that there is a LSS less than 30 miles from my house! Woo hoo! Have any of you ever been to Precious Memories in Flora? I'm going to have to check it out. They're only open Thursday through Saturday, but my new friend from yesterday's event says they have a lot of nice stuff.

Good morning Ladies! Boy...I missed alot of posts in the last couple of weeks! Work has been crazy lately so I haven't had time to get much done. Last weekend I helped my daughter made sugar skuls for her club at Monmouth. That was alot of fun! I have 15 different Christmas cards finished! Some friends are coming over today so I hope to be half way before the day is over. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Card making group was small but mighty--ME!! But one of the librarians had her after-school group make Christmas cards for the troops. YAY!! So I shipped those off to Operation Write Home today--26 Any Hero cards and 26 Valentine's Day cards. I need to check to see what is the most economical way to ship these cards out...

Working with my recruit tonight as she wants to attend our upline meeting with me on Friday. We are to swap a card with a Christmas theme...should be lots of fun!

Good afternoon Jeanette and everyone! It's been so quiet on this thread. I'm wondering if everybody is stuck in the check-out lane at WalMart as I was today for almost 30 minutes - lol! Love the prices, hate the store!

Hello Jeanette, TinaMarie and all!
Gorgeous morning here in Central Illinois. Sunny, brisk and just a couple of hours ago there were a ton of stars sparkling brightly! So pretty!
This morning I'll finish the last of 15 gift sets for Christmas - monogrammed note cards with coordinating address books. I think they turned out OK. I'm my own worst critic, but I think they'll be appreciated and I'll be glad to be finished!!!!!!!!! Then, it's off to work. Oh well, have to make that paycheck to buy all this wonderful stamping stuff!
Have a great today!

Good evening Ladies! Loretia - I would love to see your gift sets!

I have some bad news to share. I have been having some medical problems for the last couple of years. Last November I had surgery for Thyroid cancer and thought I was finally going to be on the road to recovery. In Feb of this year I was dx with Lupus. Again, I thought, ok, now I will get better. I have been having some issues with my stomach so back to the dr I went. I had a ct scan Wednesday and found out today that I have several tumors on my left ovary. So, here I go again with another surgery and who knows what...I have tried to be positive through everything God has thrown at me, but, I could really use some prayers right now. I feel that I am at the end of my rope as far as patience are concerned! I keep telling myself that this will be a simple solution and I will FINALLY be on the road to recovery! Please pray that I am right! Ok, thank you for letting me vent! But, on a good note.. I will have lots of time to stamp and scrap while I recover from yet another surgery!

I am still working on Christmas cards. I have about 20 left to go! I am going to try to get some scanned to the galary before I mail them all out.

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! I am hoping to get my Christmas decorations up this weekend.

Tina Marie, I am sorry about your news... sorry that you are having to deal with yet another surgery, another worry... and just wanting to feel well! Huge hugs... lots of prayers, and a listening ear any time you need a friend to talk to. I am here for you!

If you don't mind my asking, when are you scheduled for surgery?
