Good afternoon ladies! I have been MIA for quite a while! Took me forever to catch up on the thread!
My life has been extremely busy! I have started displaying and selling my crafts at craft fairs. Only 2 more before Christmas but boy am I exhausted!!!
Other than that, everything is pretty much the same.
Linda, How did the second surgery go? How are you feeling?
Loretia - I hope you are enjoying the grandbabies!
Jeanette - It sounds like you are staying busy as usual! Did you get your heat fixed?
Well, have a great day! I will try to come "see" you all more often!

I was thinking about all of you a few days ago!!! What's been going on???
NO, I didn't have my second knee surgery. My first knee still hurts as bad as it did before the surgery! The surgeon says he wants to wait until after my anniversary of my surgery (July) before he does anything else with the knee that he already replaced.

I finally got my "Art Studio"!!! I took a spare bedroom that very rarely got used, donated the bed, got rid of most of the clutter, and moved all of my stamp and card supplies out of my Dinning Room up there FINALLY ! ! ! I'e got a nice big flat screen TV mounted on the wall, and have already had the grandkids over a few times to make crafts and cards. It's wonderful! I think I went about 2 years without making cards, just because I had packed it all up, waiting for a new home.

I'm anxious to hear what everyone else is up to!

Hello Ladies... I thought everyone must have moved away from Illinois. LOL! Most days I was just talking to myself, so at Thanksgiving time, I quit coming to the thread, too!

It's so good to see some of you here checking in!

I was in Collinsville yesterday for CKC. It was a GREAT day!

Ladies it is so good to hear from you. Life for me has change alot, my youngest daughter had twins. A boy and a girl. There are 19 months now and my oldest daughter had a little girl 9 months old. I have been working of 12 hour days and I recently (in March) became a Stampin' Up demonstrator. But doing great. Linda I have had both of my knees replaced the 2nd one was 10 times easier and less painful. Was told if 1 is rough and other is easier and this proved true in my case.

Hello everyone! Jeanette - I had so much fun in Collinsville! I went with a friend on Saturday (just to shop) and we had a blast! Of course I spent WAY too much money! I love to go to these events because it seems like a great time to stock up on some of my favorite things (BLING, BLING and more BLING) I stoped at the Close to My Heart booth and was taling to Dr Phil. It really is a small world! My son just signed with McKendree and he is a Professor there. I can't belive how long it has been since I have been on here! Not much has really happened in my life but I am gearing up for my baby's high school graduation, lots of bowling tournaments and this coming weekend Prom! Isaac was nominated for Prom King, I am more excited than he it I think! Anyway, Linda, I am glad to hear you don't have to have the second sugery right away! I wish your knee felt better though.. I have really missed taling to all of you! Talk to you soon!

Well gee you should of let me know!!

I plan on going I think in August for the Stamp Convention. I missed last year, cause I am having problems with my eyes and having problems driving and getting dizzy. 50/50 chance of getting dizzy when I drive. Now I am able to drive to the mall which is 15 mile with mild dizziness.

I think Collinsville is in the 25-30ish range. I went through physical therapy for my eyes since last nov but hit a standstill. I have a ENT appt next week and an Neurology week after.

Long -long story, will be a year on May 1st with this "problem".

Miss chatting with you and Barb and all the card swaps!

Well, It would have been nice to meet you too.Been living here for 3 years and only have one stamping bud.

Even worked at Mikes for a year and a half and still have one stamping bud! And just quit!! Now that is another long story too!

So...Is this THE Dr. Phil...If so My Daughter and I would have loved to talked to him. We watch him when she comes home from school, she is in 9th grade. He really needs to get some better guests on. Some of these people I just don't understand how they get through life in one piece!

Leslie - Unfortunately he is not THE Dr Phil. He is Dr. Phil Scraps. He has some videos online if you search his name. Very nice guy. I live in Central Illinois so it was about a 3 hr drive for me to the Expo. If we lived closer - I would love to get together to stamp!

Leslie~~ When in August and where is the August Stamp convention? Is there any others anywhere? I'm in Decatur, are you southern IL? It's nice getting people chatting again. I've been bad. My newest grandson is 17 months old now. He is wonderful!!! I am busy making cards like crazy right now. My daughter-in-law's sister has ovarian cancer, and there is a benefit Saturday. I volunteered my time on Saturday, and instead, they want me to make a basket of cards that they will raffle off. YIKES ! ! !

So, gotta go stamp!!!

So is anyone near Meredosia IL?

From time to time I go to see my mother in law. And it would be good to hook up with some other Stamper/scrappers.

So if you live in or around Jacksonville, Rushville, Beardstown. It would be cool to get to together with you all sometime.

Next time I'm going to be in the area. Is May.

Good Morning Illinois Swappers!

I've been gone a couple of days... and am so excited to see you here chatting now that I'm home again!

Funny thing is............. Nancy, I was in Beardstown! I went there to speak at a regional meeting - missions sort of thing. It's about a 4 1/2 hour drive from my house, so I spent the night in a hotel in Springfield. Wish I'd known you live near there, maybe we could have met.

I, too, plan to go to the Collinsville Stamp Show later this yeaar. Oh it would be great fun to meet some of you IRL! Let's try to plan for it, those of us that will be attending, okay?

Leslie, I'm so sorry you have no stamping friends nearby. I don't either... we've lived here almost two years now. I do go to Mt. Vernon occasionally to a stamp club that meets there - but it's an hour from my house. The things we'll do to have someone to stamp with, right?

Hugs for all!!!

when is the stamp show in Collinsville? I will have to make plans to go too! It would be a blast to meet up with everyone here! I am about 3 hrs from Collinsville, but my son will be going to McKendree in the fall which is only about a 20-30 min drive I think. I would be able to go see him and shop all at the same time!
The rain finally made it here today...I know we need the moisture, but I was really enjoyng the warmer weather!
Have a great rest of your day everyone!

I think that it would be great to meet at Collinsville. Then maybe able to work out to get together once a month and do some crafting. My niece lives in Belleville and know it would fine to meet there. Bree loves crafting also. I go there at least once a month to craft. This would be so much fun if we could try and make it work.

Worked 12 hours today. Like the money but hard on this old body. Kinda of tired tonight.

It would be fun to get together and craft... but aren't we much closer to each other than we are to Belleville?

Good Morning Ladies!!! I hope you have a wonderful day! And, if I could ask, my dad is having cancer surgery tomorrow, could you please say a prayer for him and our family? He has done great so far and I would love for God to continue to bless him and keep him safe.

Thanks!

Hi ladies! Hope everyone had a wonderful day. My Dad came thru surgery pretty well. He had surgery to remove cancer from his lung. They ended up taking a little more of his lung than originally planned but on the good note..if the pathology reports on his lymph nodes come back clear he is now cancer free and will not need any further treatment. It has been a long, scarry day but I am glad that the worst is over and he is on his way to recovery! My dad has been my rock for as long as I can remember and I have always been "daddy's girl". I thank God every day for blessing me with such a wonderful father and continue to pray that he is back to his onery self soon!

Tina, I'm glad to hear your dad's surgery is over... praying for speedy recovery now and well as clean/clear lymph nodes!

I hope you will both get some rest; today had to have been exhausting!

Hugs!!!

Good Morning Ladies! I hope you all have a wonderful day! Today is my son's Senior Prom. Going to be fun to see him and all of his classmates all dressed up in there tuxes and gowns. Talked to the hospital and dad had a pretty good night. He said that he is pretty sore (I couldn t imagine why) but is breathing better. As my husband would say - Have a Super Sparkely Day Everyone!

Hi all,
Worked today just got home and shower and on with relaxing for the evening. Tina so glad that your dad is doing so well. I'm sure you will have a great time seeing all your sons friends all dolled up. And this is memory he will alway remember and share for years.
Hope all are well and having a chance to craft.

Prom was great! Isaac was 2nd attendant for the Senior Royalty! I took about a hundred pictures! I am going to make a small scrapbook for his date as a momento for her to remember her first Prom by. I will try to post some photos when I get it done.
My Dad is a little depressed. He really thought they were going to let him come home today but his chest tube starting draining alot of blood so they are keeping him for a few more days. He called me and I could tell he was crying. That has to be the hardest thing for me through all of this. My dad never cries. I know that he has been so scared and then every time there is a little set back he is starting to panic. I keep trying to lift his spirits and stay positive. Keep praying for quick healing!

Sorry it took me so long to get back to this tread.

Last week was a bad week with my dizzy problem. Stayed in the house all week. Only drove two times to pick my son up after school from tutoring.

But this week I am doing good. But yesterday when I drove to take the kids to the dentist, I got dizzy and my eyes got blurry. Then it went away-then came back at 11pm. Tell ya-going nuts here. Oh and ds needs braces

But I have my ENT apt tomorrow and my Neurology apt next Thursday.

And as no stamping friends yes and no. I have one SCS friend that lives in the general area I meet every once in awhile. We only got together to stamp once....When we get together We meet at Panera. Then we go to the Scrapbook Store.......Hobby Lobby........Joannes.........Archivers And we even made it to the Mall once Tee Heee.

I would love to get together but the weekends will be taken up for awhile. I need to go out clothes shopping for the kids, Summer clothes and all plus My son 13 is be "prompted" to 9th grade (back in my day it was called graduate to 9th grade!) need to get him some clothes.

This is happening on May 22nd My dd is in 9th grade and both my kids get out of school on the 24th. My dad is coming down from WI for a weekend visit 24th -27th.

Plus we were just "email" last night, nice email-ed, not called, about a family gathering upstate 4 1/2 hours away may 31-June 2nd. That we are "thinking about" See if I can do the drive/ what the doc will say blah blah blah blah......
Am I rambaing

Have a good Day Ladies

Hi Ladies!

Tina, I'm sorry your dad is not doing better. Hopefully soon he'll be able to go home. What a nice idea to make the scrapbook memento for the young lady! You're so sweet!

Lesliie, I think your "get-together" with your friend sounds perfect! Lunch at Panera and shopping would be great! I'm sorry you're not feeling better. Take care of yourself. BTW, I'll actually be near your area Saturday - going to Fairview Heights for a funeral.
