Dawn, can you PM your mom's address to me. I will try to get a card in the mail.

I'm going to put in one more order. There are a couple things I'd like from the mini and big cat. And I need to stock up on certain colors of cs and restock some refills.

Good morning everyone. Hope you are all having a good day! It is kind of like our Friday here. DD started school this week but has tomorrow and Monday off. Not sure what we are going to do, but hopefully we find something fun and different to do.
Maybe I will even stamp something

If you check the home page, there was a MAJOR server move done and they are still dealing with some issues. Email notification (or not) is one of those, so the email you got probably came much later than was intended and you already saw the post.

I saw the notes about the server move and knew that was what was going on yesterday. Didn't think about it carrying over into day. Thanks for the reminder.

Man, that stinks!! Sorry you are having trouble. Maybe try shutting your computer down, letting it sit for a couple of minutes and then restarting it? Not sure if it will make a difference but just a thought!

happy Friday everyone!

I've resorted to just putting my name of the card somewhere in one of the corners. Not like anyone would want to steal my stuff so not sure why I bother!

Great minds think alike...I did try that. Then I tried using the compressed air to "clean" out the slot.....

Guess what? STUPID THING STILL WON'T WORK!!

(deeeeeeeep breaths......calming thoughts.........) what a crappy week.....fires, IDA, no power for a day (which meant cleaning out the fridge/freezer completely).....stupid computers....ants (yeah....got an invasion of those too)......Thank heavens it's Friday....I'd have to jump off a cliff if it got much worse!!

Oh Starla, I am so sorry!! I know the new IDA is sucky...I'm holding out hope for a few more revisions regarding email. Everthing else I think I can live with and really want to stay a demo.

Do you have a different computer that you can try the card on or maybe a friends computer? That way you will know if it really is your computer or maybe something went crazy with the card?

Sorry you are having such a hard week.

I just uploaded 2 cards I made last week. I did not realize it had been a year since I had posted something there. Ugh...that is just toooo long.

One other thought I just had....did the card somehow get locked? You know the little tab that can move from one side to the other? Maybe it's locked somehow??

Grasping at straws here for you.....

I sent out my 'official email' today to all my customers (at least those with email) telling them I'd be terminating at the end of the month. Called the lady in charge of the Tues. class to let her know that I'd stay thru the fall session and then be done, so she has time to find a replacement teacher.

I have a big shot class (more like a cuttlebug class, since that's what everyone has) next Thurs. that I need to make some projects for, but mo & jo are missing and I have a headache.

I was hoping this was it!! But there doesn't seem to be a tab on my card...
I'm just going to let it go for now and come back to it later. Since my cards don't fit any challenges, they won't get many looks/comments anyways. I had hoped to update my blog....but such is life!!

I still need to do this. Go figure that one of the teacher's asked me if I was going to have another SU event soon!! (mind you....no one has RSVP'd for the last few ws that I have had!) I told her that I was stepping down being a demo but was thinking of having stamping ws. Just won't have anything to sell. She asked if I would make any $$ at it....laughed and told her I never made $$ selling SU!!

Too true! DH wondered how I could always spend more than I made without dipping into the household account. I figure any used stamps, etc. I sell do not count as income, but it sure helps for mad money.

I have to say that is one thing that has always made me sad. I love the cards I post, and back in the day when I posted everyday I got lots of comments. But since that has fallen off I am lucky to get 1 or 2.

I've decided that I need to go back to the basics and stamp what I want. What I love, what makes me happy. I am going to do the challenges again because they help inspire me, but I am not going to post a card just to get comments. I've lost the "love" of stamping in the last year and I need it back. I cannot worry about what is the newest, hottest, greatest thing out there. I cannot buy it anyways so I mind as well appreciate what I do have and count my blessings!

I never "made" money either as any profit I did get went back into supplies, tools etc. I do miss being able to get new things from time to time which is why I wanted to start back up. My classes were always free and my payment came from orders I received. I am not sure in this economy I'll even be able to build a base again, if I decide to stay with SU! But I do miss getting new stuff

GOOD FOR YOU!! I'm working on this one myself (ask DH what happened when I created what I thought was a MASTERPIECE for a challenge and got very few looks/comments....NOT PURDY AAAT ALL!!)....

I have to realize that in my little world....most people think that my stuff is pretty good and be HAPPY with that!!

As far as card comments, I come to the conclusion that if you do a regular challenge and get it posted early in the day, you are likely to get quite a few comments, because the people who comment mostly are the ones who do the challenge.

If you post late in the day or later in the week, you could get zero comments, not because the card isn't great, but the ones who would have commented are already on to something else.

If your card is not for a challenge or if it's for vsn, fan club challenges, etc., or just because you felt like making a card, you may get a few comments, since the hostesses and a few participants will comment, or you may not get any at all.

Some of the people who regularly commented on cards are now on design teams or such and don't spend much time on here. It just really has very little to do with your talent. People also comment on blog posts instead of here.

So you really have to have a mindset that it doesn't matter if you get comments or not. Just do what you are happy with and let it go at that.

If I was a true business demo I would be out there promoting, blogging, trying to get business, classes and workshops. Everything I have ever done is for a small group of friends. Some of them have been good spenders and it always met my minimums so I was happy. I'd be happy just to get back to that.

This is what I had too....friends that stamped and sometimes spent enough to make mins for me! But I never pretended that there wasn't "other" stuff out there (never showed it in a ws...but would tell them to buy the tools at M's and spend the "savings" on the stamps!!

How cool!! I am going to go check it out. Computers take time to figure out...and lots of practice.

OOOOO!! I'll have to go check it out!!


Trying to get into last minute shape for a ride down the coast in Oct. I have basically 5-6 (need to figure that out) weeks to be able to ride 60 miles a day x 5 days.....BWHHahahaaaa!!! Yeah....no problem (snort). Rode 43 miles today but I'm tired. Need to try and do at least 25 tomorrow with a hill in there.....not sure that I can pull it off.
It's stinkin' hot out too.

HEY!! Guess what? My computer decided to acknowledge my camera card today!! Now to update my blog! (have I mentioned that I hate computers?!! I'm am soooo not computer savy and it just drives me nuts when something goes wonkers 'cause I won't be able to figure it out!!)

Great news about the camera card!!

good luck on the bike riding. I cannot imagine going that far in one day let alone 5 days in a row.

The good news is, we will have a "sag" vehicle, so technically, I don't have to ride the whole thing. But every year I SWEAR that I'm going to get in shape for this ride ( yes.....we do this ride every year....and at the same time each year...it's not like I didn't know about it!!). I would help tremendously if I wasn't carrying around 15-20lbs of extra weight. The coast ride is NOT flat and I am dreading the hills around Big Sur (serves me right....this is when those handfulls of chocolate chips catch up with me!!)

If your card is not for a challenge or if it's for vsn, fan club challenges, etc., or just because you felt like making a card, you may get a few comments, since the hostesses and a few participants will comment, or you may not get any at all.

Some of the people who regularly commented on cards are now on design teams or such and don't spend much time on here. It just really has very little to do with your talent. People also comment on blog posts instead of here.

So you really have to have a mindset that it doesn't matter if you get comments or not. Just do what you are happy with and let it go at that.
Yeah...even then it doesnt' always work. I was one of the very first to post a card for the Friday challenge and I only got about 14 comments. You just never know. Glad you want to do the challenges again Jen. Which reminds me...I gotta think up one for Friday!
