So many great cards in the gallery this morning. This one really caught my eye...


Happy Birthday to You (by Bar/Barbara, of course)

Good Morning! We are to get a bit of snow, they say 5-7 inches and I know parts of the east are to get lots more! I will be at church tonight, getting set up for Camp Stamp-in-Oga. The snow is supposed to come during that time and into the night, so tomorrow morning will be a snowy, winter wonderland! I have my challenge cards done and I am mostly packed with a few projects to work on. I also have 7 paper boxes of rummage items to bring over and I hope all of it sells..... or a good deal of it! I hope you all have a Fantastic Friday and a Wonderful Weekend--be safe with the winter weather!

Hi Barb! That is a great card - I love how the ribbon "extends" the ends of the cross. So creative!

Yay for Friday!


Jeanette, love the bar/barabara cards, too - they were my Thursday favorites. Today, being Friday, means I need to chose from those! BBL!

Here is my card case for January: I was so inspired by SO MANY cards, but in the end, familiarity with products from TPB made this one fall into place!

XOXO

Good Morning Gallery Gazers!











FYI - We are leaving early tomorrow morning to head out-of-town for a 2-day meeting, so you won't see me on SCS the next couple of days.








Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hello Ladies!

My name is Aracelli, but my friends call me Sally, and my "crafty" friends refer to me as CraftyMerla. I very much would like to become part of the Gallery Gazers Blog Group, or at least give it a go and see if I can keep up with all of you.

A bit of my backstory: I retired in 2011 from teaching. I relocated and moved in with my Mom to care for her. She is 88 and frankly in better health than I am. I am divorced and mother of 2 adults. My son (39 yrs.) is a COO of InTrua Financial and has 2 sons (7 yrs & 4 yrs), and my daughter (32 yrs) is a high school English teacher and has 1 daughter (12 yrs).

SCS and card making/scrapbooking keeps me sane. I have really had to make many adjustments to my life and the only constant has been my paper crafting. Over the last few years I have joined a couple of groups and love chatting and meeting fellow SCStampers. Even though I play and create something at least 3 times a week, I fail at blogging and uploading to my gallery. I spend more time commenting and looking at other's work. My resolution this year is to consistently blog and upload, so I think this group is just what I need right now.

Let me know your thoughts...check out my blog and see if I'll fit in here. By the way, as a SU Demonstrator, I blog more for myself. It is my way to keep a record of my cards and how I made them in case I want to create more for some reason. Reading and checking out other's blogs will be a new experience for me. I look forward to it and am itching to learn...

Welcome to the group Sally. Jeanette organized this group and she is going to be gone for a few days. She will be back later this week and get you all set.

Thanks for stopping in--Barb

Hello Sally... we are so excited that you are here! Thank you for joining us... and thank you for telling us a little bit about yourself. We're going to find it great fun to chat and be inspired by you!

Barb is right, I'm leaving early tomorrow morning for a 2-day trip, but I snuck back on SCS tonight - I still need to pack so I'm just dashing through. And you will discover, I do like to go go go... so I disappear from time to time. You'll also hear me mention Hot Sauce - frequently and lovingly. Hot Sauce is my pretty red car. I am married to a minister and we have three children - all adults. Our oldest lives one state north of us where he is a manny (nanny) to three littles - twin boys and their younger sister who has spina bifida. The boys are 3 and the sister is not quite 2. Our youngest and only daughter lives far FAR away in the bush of Alaska, where she is the Special Ed teacher in a small Eskimo village that is far off the road system. Our middle child - Brock - lives with us and I love LOVE telling tales about him. He keeps us smiling, looking at life through his eyes. Brock is autistic. He truly brings us a lot of joy!

Congrats on retiring - what did you teach? Barb is also a retired educator (but I'm sure she'll tell you about that.) I have a degree in Education (Speech/Theatre, with a minor in English) but I retired before I ever started teaching. LOL! I used to teach GED classes and after that I subbed in the public schools for several years (and a little Christian school) but have not done that for a number of years.

Kelly and Barb will tell you about themselves - right friends? They are both gems who inspire me regularly! (I do tend to RAZZ Barb a bit, and she has been known to RAZZ me a bit, too... just to warn you so you won't panic if/when that happens.)

Kelly is surely - SURELY - going to tell you about her newest family member, plus all the others... including the furry ones. And her addiction to - no, LOVE! for - Starbucks.

Okay, I've rattled on enough... for now, I'm going to add your blog link to the first page of this thread (and to my blog) and I'll be back bright and early Thursday morning to chat some more.

Okay... I'm not sure what's up with all the question marks on the first post... but at least we don't have a gazillion "likes".

Okay, I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong. I added Sally's blog to my sidebar on my blog... but instead of taking me to the blog (which she posted to yesterday) it tells me she hasn't posted anything for 6 days and it takes me to what appears to be her SU business.

Kelly and/or Barb, if you add it to your sidebar, can you tell me what it does for you? Thanks!

Yes, we are getting another round of snow this afternoon--5 to 7 inches! Then cold again--it was -10 yesterday morning and will be that way for the rest of the week. We had a great time at the Bucks game yesterday for MLK Day! They won and it was our first time at the new arena--it is beautiful! I have a dentist appointment this morning and then the rest of the day in the stamp room--I still need to unpack all of my stuff from camp and pack up three swaps to mail. I hope you have a great day too!

Welcome Sally--yes, I too am a retired teacher. I taught health and physical education, the last 30 years at a high school in SE Wisconsin. I also was the Athletic Director for 17 years and I am still active in the state and national association. My roomie Rebecca and I live just west of Milwaukee in a subdivision and we love to garden--vegetables and flowers. We built a green house a few years ago and love to start out seeds indoors under lights in March and move them to the greenhouse the beginning of May. I love SCS and spent lots of time here. I also have had the opportunity to meet a few members of SCS, including Kelly and Jeanette! I also have a few sweet stamping stores in the Milwaukee area--Village Ink and Paper--home of Gina K Designs and Creative Pals--home to Whipper Snapper Designs.

I hope you enjoy being in this group!

Yes, same for me. Sally's SU page comes up even though I have copied her SU blog link. I guess we have to click on blog when we go to her link from our own blogs.

Thank you ladies for making me feel so welcomed! In celebration of this beautiful (but very windy day here) let's take a bite from this deliciously mouth-watering cupcake. I just couldn't resist...

Enjoy your day with a cupcake!

It is a snow day in SE Wisconsin as most of the schools are closed in my area. We had about 4" over night and another 4-5 are forecast this morning. The good thing is no blowing--yet! But it is to be very cold by the end of the week with temps below zero overnight and into the day! I plan to spend the day in the stamp room--Yay for Me!

Hey hey, all! Been busy cleaning the house today and just realized - it's almost afternoon!


Sally, I went to your blog and left a comment - I think! For some reason, it's coming up as my YouTube account?!! Very bizarre - but it was fun to see your cards!

Jeanette should be commuting home - praying it's a safe trip!

Kelly, I did commute home... it was safe, but I will admit I was a bit worried as we were leaving our offices, 3 1/2 hours from home. They'd already called off school (for today) in that area, as it was freezing/raining... ucky weather. I wasn't sure what we'd get into on the way home. Thankfully the main roads were fine; we only found icy patches (mostly) on the side roads and in parking lots.

Sally, the cupcake card you found is so sweet and cute!

Kelly, WOW! I loved the layers and layers on the adorable chicken card!

Barb, thanks for introducing yourself to Sally! I loved reading your words - bringing back fond memories of our times together - and those amazing stores in your area!







Hugs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So many cards to love in the gallery this morning. I guess it's not surprising that I ended up choosing one made by Bar/Barbara to share (I do love her style!)...

I'm Over the Moon for You

Good Morning Gallery Gazers! I do hope all of you are staying warm and out of harm's way. Our beautiful south Texas weather is a nice 55" with a high today of 71. I'm wearing shorts indoors with my heater at 72, but it hasn't kicked in all morning. I wear shorts and my Mom wears gloves because she is cold...55 is our winter here. We deal with gusts of winds instead of snow. The winds at 55mph yesterday, actually knocked down a SpaceX Starship that was getting ready to be launched on a test run...that was our front page news today.

Onto cards...Kelly, you found a blog I had tried to start on Blogger because my SU DBWS site is very uncooperative. There is never any tech support and right now no one can post onto FB or Twitter. A couple of years ago, I spent hours putting Blogger together and then my SU Blog started working. So, I forgot about Blogger...until you brought it up yesterday. I was thinking I should switch, but I have over 130 entries on the SU blog with many links to my SCS cards. To make Blogger my SU Blog, I have to put one blog on top of the other which means that the SU blog would disappear. I don't know if it is worth it. How difficult is it to use Blogger? Are there answers for those of us who encounter problems? What do you ladies think? Start over again or grit my teeth and keep going. I have found that the SU site does not allow for any extra badges or things. It is simple and plain, and SU does not seem to maintain it. I would appreciate your feedback if you have the time.

Oh yeah, Kelly you have to hit the link that Jeanette posted on page 1 or my link to my blog under my signature. Thanks.

Barb, thanks for telling me a bit about yourself. I enjoyed reading your short bio and getting to know you.

I taught High School for 10 years: Theater Arts, English, Speech, Reading. As the Drama Coach you know I lived at that high school. If it wasn't a rehearsal, it was a speech tournament or prep. I did that for 5 years at a San Antonio High School. The other 5 years was at an Austin High School where I taught reading to all who had not passed the state exam. Many ankle bracelets in that class as well as very young parents if you know what I mean.

I also taught 16 years at a middle school: reading to all who had not passed the state exam including Special Education Students and those in the English as a Second or Other Language program. I was the only one teaching this, so I had 6, 7, and 8th graders.

I was also the one who led the after school programs, conducted in-services for teachers and led school wide programs. I was also a curriculum writer for the district in the summers.

Teaching is my passion and although I was exhausted, I never felt like I was working. I learned as much as all of my students if not more.

Oh my I didn't mean to write a short novel here. Onto gallery gazing and blog writing...

Sally, how fun... we have a similar story in one wee sense. My college degree is a B.S. in Speech Communication/Theatre (emphasis was Theatre) with a minor in English. My intent was to teach Speech/Theatre in a high school setting... then my last year in college God changed my direction, and as the saying goes... the course of history was forever changed. I treasure my college education and those years of working diligently (long hours of free labor!!!) in our theatre department.
