AK * Alaska anyone??
 
I am in Wasilla :)

mtnstamper 01-23-2010 08:44 AM

I am in Anchorage! And would love to stamp with someone. Do you have people you get together with or just you? I'm a 'just me' and sometimes my mom. Just moved back to AK last year. My mom is in Wasilla also

princessmeshelle 03-02-2010 11:21 PM

I'm in Eagle River!

EthansMom 03-20-2010 03:42 PM

Hi, ladies! My family is moving to Alaska in July (I won't officially be there until mid-December). I'm glad to know there are SCS'ers there!

princessmeshelle 03-21-2010 10:05 AM

Will you be Stationed at Elmendorf AFB or the other one (I can't remember the name)? I'm guessing USAF cus your location is Scott AFB.

EthansMom 07-10-2010 01:02 PM

I'll be at Elmendorf AFB. I'm excited for the move...but apprehensive because we're moving in DECEMBER! Are there any get-togethers there? I'd be interested in getting together in the spring, once my unpacking is mostly finished...

princessmeshelle 07-12-2010 01:15 PM

So far, I'm on my own since my SU! demo moved. But I know there are other stampers here. And scrappers. And crafters in general. I just have no luck at finding people. Don't worry about moving here in Dec. It will be pretty much up hill from there. I think it's beautiful no matter what time of year it it. Even construction season and break up. Don't stress too much. Just be sure to go slow until you get used to the icey roads. Oh, and the yellow lights up here last forever, BUt if it comes down to it, run the red if you don't think you can safely slow down in time for the yellow. You'll love it!

tracyltripp 08-09-2010 03:17 PM

Oh I'm so glad to see some stampers out that way! We are moving there this month to Ft Richardson. Hopefully I will be able to meet you all soon.

tracyltripp 09-02-2010 12:13 PM

We made it! Should have housing by tomorrow. Can't wait to get the stamping zone set up. Maybe we can have a stamping day!

YAY!!! I am soooooooo glad you made it!!!!! (Especially with ALL the kids and dh!!!!) Get your zone set up - so I can come stamp!!!! And, get ahold of Beth - she likes to stamp - she isn't on SCS, though. She likes to always "tweek" things and not follow the sample at workshops!! LOL!!! We always made fun of her doing it "Beth's Way" :p

tracyltripp 09-28-2010 05:07 PM

Hey Ladies,

I'm starting to get stir crazy here on Ft Richardson...needing a break from unpacking...anyone up for some stamping time? If so let me know what days works best for you all and I will be more than happy to put up some stamping tables. I can even through something together for us to munch on.

tracyltripp 10-02-2010 07:57 PM

Trying to locate stamp stores here in Alaska, does anyone know of any. I did find Stamp Attic in Anchorage, which was fantastic.

mtnstamper 10-03-2010 06:09 PM

AK stamp stores
 
Stamp Attic is is for Anchorage and then there is Stamp Cache in Palmer. If you are up for a road trip this week, we could take a trip out there. I need to go check out her stuff again since I had my hubby with me this past time and didn't have time to look at everything I wanted to! It is a great store and has a LOT of stamps. I take classes at Stamp Attic here and there because the people are so nice and it is fun to do. Have met some great people that way. Talk w/you soon.8)

So glad Halloween is over, very long weekend of different events for the kiddos.

I'm going to stamp and create this week if anyone wants to get together and work on some projects, would love to have some company.

tracyltripp 11-05-2010 03:05 PM

philsmom 11-14-2010 04:24 PM

Hi ladies
I fulfilled a dream a few years ago to visit our 49th state. I will be so jealous of you all come July & August! (I hate heat & humidity) I hope to return again to AK. Will the TSA let me on the plane with my paper cutter & favorite scissors?
Wish I could come & play with you in AK!

Just got home from seeing the new Harry Potter movie here on Ft Richardson...it was so much fun, can't wait for it to come out on dvd so I can add it to my collection.lol So looking forward to the second half now.

tracyltripp 11-18-2010 04:26 PM

So excited started a simple Christmas card last night which incorporates a family picture we had taken this summer while at a family reunion. Need to make fifty and so far I already have 5 completely done and the rest in various stages. Hope to have them all complete by this weekend, so I can start on some chocolate gift sets.

Hope you all are staying warm and enjoying yourselves.

tracyltripp 12-06-2010 11:31 AM

Hello Ladies,

Just wanted to see if any of you would be interested in a shoebox swap. If so let me know, so I can start planning. I have a couple of friends that would be coming from out of state so I'm thinking summer time frame.

tracyltripp 12-25-2010 11:03 AM

Merry Christmas!

EthansMom 12-31-2010 04:22 PM

Well, we're spending New Years Eve in Fort Nelson...hoping to make Elmendorf AFB by Tuesday. I'm REALLY looking forward to getting my stuff unpacked and settled. I'm looking forward to meeting you all!

princessmeshelle 12-31-2010 04:30 PM

Tracy, I'm gonna ask a dumb question... What is a shoebox swap?

Have a safe trip! Once you're here if you need anything or help let me know I'm just on Richardson.

devonsmom98 12-31-2010 04:55 PM

A shoebox swap is when you creat a card and cut the supplies so everyone else at the swap can make your card while you are making theirs. So if there are ten stamps we would cut supplies for 9 since you won't want to make your own card at the swap. It's a fun way to get lots of great cards done and to visist with new or old friends.

YES - you MUST - so you can be done with the quilt AND take pics of it!!!
I got the calendars cut out this morning. Were supposed to be 4 x 6 - but they are not...need to be matted to be 4 x 6......grumble grumble!! That is all I got done on them as I had to go buy a new washer & dryer - the washer was a SMOKING - thankfully, I never leave the house with laundry going!!
