THREAD CLOSED - DC/VA/WV/MD/PA STAMPERS
 
THREAD CLOSED -- SEE NEW THREAD FOR 2012 INFO.


ATTENTION ALL SCSers IN THE VA/MD/WV/PA AREA:

STAMP CLUB MEETINGS & A SEPT. 2011 RETREAT INFO IN POSTS BELOW THIS ONE!!!
You are invited to our new stamp club!!
It is open to all SCSers! Every couple of months we'll try to meet for a few hours to share ideas, exchange swaps, craft, munch and chat. We'll aim for a Saturday, making exceptions for holidays and weather of course and availability of meeting space. We will do a potluck each time, so be sure to post what you'll be bringing each month as well.

We'll have the details for each meeting here as well as a list to sign up. Just post here if you have questions or want to join us.
If you'd like to teach a class, please feel free to post that here as well! We'll rotate through each month so everyone has a chance to share their ideas too.

Be sure to bring your basics to each meeting, i.e. scissors, tape, glue, pops, markers, cutters, etc, plus watch for a list of supplies for that month's project(s). We'll do an exchange of some sort each month too so bring as many as those who have signed up for that month if you want to swap too.

Hope to see you there!

Hi Ellen -- So glad you are coming!!!
P.S. - passed a travel trailer on the way to work that DH is going to go check out. :) hehe

cerridwen3301 10-27-2010 06:55 AM

yay look at us! love it! no idea what i will be bringing yet...

terrie.mcnulty 10-27-2010 07:15 AM

I can't make it in December but will watch for the January announcement. Thanks, Susan, for organizing this1 You are super!

BfloStamp 10-27-2010 08:16 AM

It's Buffalo, which means that by Dec 18th we'll probably be buried in 300 inches of snow and ice.

But I love this idea and am so pleased that I'm invited! I've got the next dates on my calendar and i will definitely plan on making one in 2011!

StampinGoodDeeds 10-27-2010 08:31 AM

Thanks Everyone for checking in. I'm thinking we aim for the last Saturday of every month unless there are holidays or such that interfere -- such as Christmas or Memorial Day or Thanksgiving months, then we'd move it up or such. What do you think???

StampinGoodDeeds 10-27-2010 08:38 AM

Well, I was going to volunteer to teach a class but now looks like I may be in GA for the two weeks prior for work! I may be able to arrange something before then though and will post if so.

Anyone else want to teach something?

Christina612 10-27-2010 08:46 AM

Just subscribing so I won't miss anything!

ArmyMom 10-27-2010 11:10 AM

Won't be available for December, will let you know about January a little closer to the time. Thanks for the invite.

amtutton 10-27-2010 12:42 PM

Count me in! I will bring chips and dip of some sort. Am so looking forward to meeting others again.

andora 10-27-2010 04:37 PM

Sounds wonderful!

jetstudio29 10-28-2010 04:51 AM

Thanks for the link. I am definately out for this one, we have a family dinner that evening. I'll keep checking back and maybe if the weather is good I'll come down for one of the next ones.

B&D 10-28-2010 05:09 AM

StampinGoodDeeds 10-28-2010 07:06 AM

Susan-
I'm in for December-I think I'll bring cookies!

StampinGoodDeeds 10-28-2010 12:19 PM

SO HERE IS A QUESTION:

DO ANY OF YOU DO COOKIE EXCHANGES DURING THE HOLIDAYS?
I was thinking we might want to do that for our snack? If the group is going to be smaller than normal due to the holidays, we could do some sort of holiday baked goods exchange and make the craft project be a recipe exchange book? Let me know if those of you who are attending would be interested in that? If so, I'd provide the materials for the craft, you just would have to bring your recipes preprinted (size tbd) or I might have you send them to me ahead of time to preformat and print, and the baked goods to exchange plus the potluck/snack amount. THOUGHTS?

andora 10-28-2010 04:56 PM

I have to figure out whether I can make it for the 18th. My husband's birthday is the day before and we might be celebrating it on that day. I will let you know.

susane4 10-29-2010 07:20 AM

This sounds like a wonderful idea but I live north of Baltimore and it would take me over 1 1/2 hours to get there. I can't do December, but maybe in the future. Will they always be held at the same place?

Sue

StampinGoodDeeds 10-30-2010 06:31 PM

Hi Sue -- We haven't locked in to just Purcelleville so far... its just a matter of finding a room big enough that we can meet in... and the Purcellville Library was available and has a big room with tables, no charge, adn we can have food/drink too. :)

StampinGoodDeeds 10-31-2010 06:55 AM

Praying you all have a blessed day!

StampinGoodDeeds 11-01-2010 04:32 AM

Five of us so far for December!!! Come on ladies, you know you want to come and have a nice fun afternoon in the midst of that chaotic time, and get a fun gift in return!

StampinGoodDeeds 11-01-2010 06:34 AM

We just made our final counteroffer on the 2nd house we have offered on now.
We are leaving it in the Lord's hands now, praying for His will to be obvious again and take over this decision.
The good news is its a very nice house. The bad news is that it doesn't have a room big enough to host our monthly meetings unless we keep it to small groups, and if you all want to drive this far out anyhow!

Send along my prayers too. I know how stressful all this can be! Having it resolved before the holidays would be wonderful.

Terrie

StampinGoodDeeds 11-01-2010 11:29 AM

GOOD NEWS: They accepted my offer!!! So looks like we are headed down the path of inspection, closing, etc... !
PRAISING GOD AND TESTIFYING OF HIS ANSWERING OF PRAYERS!!! I was praying for an answer when the phone rang and the realtor told me of the offer. Then I called the bank to update them and she was concerned about something on the loan... so while on hold, I was praying hard again, and she came back and not only had it resolved but the interest rate was even 1% lower so the payments went down!!! PRAISE GOD!!!!

Now wondering how many people I can fit around that table in there to host a stamp club meeting.... :)

terrie.mcnulty 11-01-2010 05:59 PM

That is FANTASTIC news, Susan! I'm very happy for you.

Terrie

StampinGoodDeeds 11-02-2010 05:24 AM
