I hope you’re planning to join us at our next Central New York Shoebox Swap.
Here’s the info:
Cost – $25.00 per person. Your registration must be paid no later than 5 pm on August 28th. This will give you over 4 weeks to complete your swaps and projects.
**** See below in THIS POST for REGISTRATION FORM!! ****
Mail your registration form and payment to Nancy Baker (address is on the form). There are no refunds, but you may offer your spot to someone else.
Here’s what’s planned.
PLEASE MAKE UP XX KITS!!! (plus ooopsies!!) PLUS 2 COMPLETED!
ONE for a sample at your table location, ONE for the Hostess.
Mandatory Swap(s) (just ONE of these is mandatory) – Participating in at least one of these seven swaps is part of the “price” of admission so everyone must participate in a swap (plus the shoebox table project is also required). You can, however, participate in any one, some or all of these swaps.
• NVR Card Front Swap - Final Count XX - See Post # 6.
• Recipe Swap – Final Count XX - Info is in Post # 12.

PLEASE MAKE UP XX KITS!!! PLUS 2 COMPLETED!
Mandatory Shoebox (Table) Project – Bring your idea and all the supplies (precut but not prestamped or prepunched) needed for EVERYONE to make your project the day of the event. Quality products are mandatory. There are several threads that discuss quality of swaps. Please read them if you are unsure. ALL the shoebox projects will be set out in the morning. You will proceed "round robin" to each of them and do ALL PROJECTS. YOU will move, YOUR PROJECT will not. GOOD DIRECTIONS WILL NEED TO BE POSTED ON YOUR SHOEBOX, you will not demo or be around for everyone to ask questions. When our final count is in, you will know how many kits to make. You will need to bring TWO extra completed shoebox projects (which includes a hostess thank you and one for your table so that everyone can follow it for directions). Participation in the table shoebox project is mandatory. This project will generally be a full card, with layers and embellishment(s) or a simple 3D item. Please provide any special adhesive that's needed. Make these something you’d be thrilled to get yourself. When you KNOW what your card or project is, please post a name for it here or send me a PM. We will all have a check off list the day of the event.
You WILL need 2 completed. One for a sample at the table and one for the hostess. I will try to complete all of the projects on the day of the event, but because of the hectic day may not be able to complete them all. HOPE YOU UNDERSTAND ...
Because we will need time to do EVERYONE'S shoebox, we WILL NEED TO LIMIT the number of attendees. It will be 30, MAXIMUM.
Food – Please indicate on the registration sheet the food item you will bring to share. Please be specific; don’t just say “food”! Ideas: breakfast items, lunch items, including salads, desserts, and snacks. Canned soda and water will be provided. We love to try your food specialties! We will not have coffee, please plan ahead and bring it along. There is a refridgerator, but NO microwave and NO stove/oven. Crockpots are welcome though.
“Garage Sale” – Bring your stamps and stamping supplies to sell or trade. Current Stampin’ Up! items must be offered for trade only; you can sell retired items. Sorry but we can’t be responsible for missing items so bring things at your own risk. There will be a limited amount of table space for garage sale items. If you are bringing a lot to sell, you may bring your own table. There is no fee to sell/trade at this event.
Goodie Bags – for everyone! Everyone will leave with a bag of fabulous goodies. The goodie bags will all have the same value with some variations in colors, etc. If you would like to donate to the goodie bags, please send me a private message. We'd be happy to include a coupon or flyer as well.
Door Prizes– We're going to skip door prizes this time. This will give us more time to stamp and "relieve" donors. If you were planning a door prize, please consider donating it to the next gathering. Thank you!!
Gift Swap – You don’t have to sign up for this one, but if you would like to participate, bring a wrapped gift related to our stamping passion. We will draw for those so that everyone who brings one will also leave with one. Value on these should be in the $5-10 range, and stamped projects are always appreciated! If it’s something you’d like to take home, it’s probably perfect! Be sure to include your name somewhere inside so the lucky winner knows who to thank. REMEMBER: Stamping-related!!!
Other Stuff – Please bring your own labeled items for your personal stamping needs, including your favorite adhesive. These are the items you just can’t stamp without, like: bone folder, paper cutter/scorer, scissors, straight edge, stamp cleaner and whatever else you can't stamp without! Did I say adhesive????? Adhesive! You will likely need lots of it.
Make and wear a nametag with your name and your SCS name so that we know you on sight.
Don't forget your camera!
Complete the registration form and forward with your $25 payment by August 28th. All funds collected will be spent on the event, for the room, drinks, and paper products etc. Your registration is complete when your payment is received. If you have any questions, please ask!

I hope to be able to attend. Just not sure when this granddaughter will actually decide to be born. No pre planned C section that I am aware of. Due on the 10th and Rachel has asked me to come stay with them for a bit when they come home from the hospital.....so things are up in the air . Hopefully will have better plans before the cut off date. this event is so much fun I hate to miss it.
Subbing, checking about a baby shower to make sure it isn't that date to see if I can go!! Gonna have to remind myself about checking on here more often since I can no longer do it at work. Is there an app for Splitcoast so I can use my phone while I am work.
Why can't every day be a crafty day?
I have always said that Murphy's Law rules my life and BAM! I got reminded of it again... I was told that my black belt test may be on November 8th which is the same day that I have already signed up for a class at the Ink Pad in NYC with Margie Kemper. I can't get my cash back, only store credit - bleh. Here's hoping they can find another date! It won't be in September so I'll be coming to this event - woo hoo, silver lining (sort of)!
A good friend will come and bail you out of jail... a true friend will be sitting next to you saying, "Damn, that was fun!"
Location: CNY but I'd rather be in Bonaire snorkeling!
Awww, shucks...thanks, Judy and TOD! The photo is from the wedding we went to on Sunday. Our printer's son got married. I HAD to buy a new dress for the occasion because I truly didn't have anything dressy for a wedding! See my FB for the full length view and maybe his family photo is there, too. It's on The Gallery's FB page.
Funny thing is that I posted something on another thread and then wondered where the post went until I realized "Oh, that's my new photo!"
