Welcome aboard, Sami! We are happy to add you to our little blogging family for a fun new year of crafty adventures!

Happy New Year to all! It is great to see you all here when I woke up to 2016 this morning. Low key here, too, Rhoda. For someone who is usually up until 1 or 2, I fell asleep before 11 last night!

Ching, I am so sorry that you are having to spend you holiday weekend with the flu! Please take care of yourself and hopefully you will rebound quickly. Hugs and get well wishes coming your way.

It is so good to hear from you, Cindy! For those of you who are new to this group, Cindy is our founding leader. Please let me know, Cindy when you are ready to be added back on a permanent basis! We miss you!

Definitely take a look at the first post in this thread Cindy as Rhoda smartly pointed out. Lynn updates that first post all the time with current members. Welcome back.


To answer your question, my new year's resolution is BE HAPPY!

Hi Ladies
Welcome to the group Jeanette & Sami.

Thanks for the visit Ching, not sure why you thought my layout was digital, gosh maybe it looks like a digi layout? But like you, I am a traditional scrapper.

Hope everyone is excited about 2016

LOL - Thanks but I am not sure about amazing

It does seem that lots of people are digital, although I have found some awesome challenge blogs for traditional scrapping lately so LOTS of great inspiration, if you want the links let me know and I will hook you up.

I adore your style Lou so it's no surprise to me that you're on DT's.

I'm good on links. I barely have time to create so just keeping up here is challenge enough. I've been scrapping a long time and I just pretty much do my own thing these days.

Happy new year!

I have been on the road today with my husband driving back home. I spent a lot of time checking out blogs. I still need to update my blog roll but can't do it from my phone! LOL

With the holiday rush over, I should be able to catch up this week. I will go to the first post to get links to the new blogs.

Ching, I know what you mean, I have been scrapping since 05, but I got so caught up in the requirements for the Digital Stamp DT's I was on last year I did 2 scrap pages all year. This year I am going to take a bit of a step back from DT's other than Southern Girls Challenge which I co own with a friend.

Thanks for being so lovely about my scrapping You are really kind.

Wow, so many happy new faces! I've known Jeanette since I was in diapers -she is like REALLY REALLY old ........... oh wait, wrong thread! Hee hee!! She's got a great sense of humor - and I love her, so glad you are here, my friend!

Okay, caught up on blogs, I think - missed a few when my blogger went bananas but I'll go back and need to update the sidebar, too!

Lou - agreed, your layouts are beautiful! I always pray I get my boxes (and boxes) of kids pictures into s/b before the boxes get too plentiful.

Rhoda - I looked up the Pomodoro - I need that 'mater! I need to seriously make a notch in time - other than when I'm driving the kids back and forth to schools Imagine that! Sorry officer, the timer went off and I had to be here! LOL!

Tomrorow I am off in search of ATG refills or Tombo as I have nothing to make cards with, unless I start scotch taping these babies together!

Hugs!

Jeanette - welcome to the group, I am Cindy. I took a too long hiatus from crafting, and I am not sure if I am back on the roll? Please add me to your AWESOME blog! Wow I am very overwhelmed by all the things you have going on! I will leave comments soon...promise!

Everyone have a great week, and I will drop in tomorrow!

Good Morning "New" Friends!




Thank you for the welcome, Cindy... I'm going to add you to my blog roll now. I look forward to being inspired by you! Good luck with your first day back after vacation! My DD is a teacher in the bush of Alaska. Their first day is today, too... with a bit of added excitement. Their school was broken into sometime Saturday night or Sunday morning... thieves made a mess of things and took what $$$ they could find. I'm sure the Yup'ik students are going to be a bit rowdy today with all the extra excitement.

Lynn, it's always fun to see dear friends again, isn't it?

Leaving a trail of friendly (((HUGS)))

Default I survived!

I survived,

Day one back from break really wasn't bad. I am starting dinner, and then photographing cards for a second post this year!! YEA!

Thank you for all the warm welcomes. I am so excited to be back. It feels right. I really need some creative outlet with a great bunch of friends!

Thanks for adding me back on! I will be sure to update my roll too.

Jeanette, how long have you been crafty? Tell us more about yourself! So glad you are here!

Question: Anyone else following a CLEAN and SIMPLE card challenge site that they really adore? I would like find ONE or TWO and commit to joining each challenge. I like sketches or color challenges. I know splitcoast has TONS!, but I can't get "into" the format of them. I like the dedicated challenge sites. (if that makes any sense) Any suggestions?

Cindy

Glad you made it through your first Monday back! I'm enjoying the stillness of my house with the kids back at school and the puppy finally sleeping. I've been fairly productive today!

I just joined the Sketch Saturday team. So that would be my recommendation Sketch Saturday

Seriously though, the sketches are simple and you can make your design as simple and clean or as full and complex as you like There is a challenge each Saturday and pretty decent prizes!

Cindy, I'm glad to hear the day wasn't too bad.

Rhoda, I guess I need to check our Sketch Saturday, too... I'm not familiar with it.

As per Cindy's request, here is a little bit of information about me.

I've been making cards since 2007. A dear friend of mine who didn't live near me made cards and would send me one occasionally and I drooled over them. They were gorgeous... and very special because they were handmade. I've always been a bit crafty so I started dreaming of making cards, too. I didn't even know how to start, so I found a SU demo and took a few card classes... and I was hooked. All other crafts went out the window. This is now the only hobby I have.

My husband calls me a full-time volunteer, because I am not employed but have a lot of volunteer roles, some local and some in our state. I love leading conferences... mostly - women topics and missions themes mostly. I am a nationally trained literacy missions conference leader, too... in the area of tutoring children/youth.

We have three young adult children. Our oldest son lives in Wisconsin. Our younger son (middle child) is autistic and lives with us, keeping us happy! He is such a joy!!! Our youngest child and only daughter teaches Special Ed in the bush of Alaska. This is her second year there.

Christmas is my holiday of choice - and I'm known to get a little crazy with decorating for it. The most trees I've ever had in our home in one year is 47... but that was when we lived in a 5-bedroom parsonage with a full basement. We now live in a MUCH smaller parsonage - less than half that size - so we aren't able to put up nearly that many trees. I actually chose my SCS name "Forest Ranger" because when I was trying to think of a name it was the holidays and the Christmas trees were twinkling around me. We lovingly call our Christmas-decorated home "The Forest" so I became the Forest Ranger.

Truthfully, I am not much of an outdoor girl... but most people on SCS think I am.

Enough?

I'd love to hear some of your stories, too! Please and thank you!!!

Happy Monday Ladies. Just getting home now. It's 10:20pm. Ran lots of errands after work while still kicking the last bit of my cold. I'e managed to clean the top of my desk. Lots of stuff, old receipts, scraps, etc to throw out. Slowly but surely, I'm making my way back.

Glad to have you back Cindy. Glad you had a great first day.

Jeanette, wow, your dd lives in Alaska? Every now and I watch the Alaska bush country reality show. That's tough living. I guess I better not complain of the sudden long stretch of cold weather here in Los Angeles? I'ts been in low to mid 50's for us since I think beginning of November? I'm loving it as it's a change from the constantly year round heat wave. We're expecting a week's worth of rain here which we need desperately, but that means work commute isn't fun.

I'm just browsing in the group when I can, and blog commenting will happen on the weekends when I can manage. I'm still in catch up mode, now with the chores at home piling up to add to the load. lol.

Good Morning Friends!




Ching, that was a late night for you. I hope you rested well after such a busy/long day!

Yes, my DD loves her Alaska home! I went to visit her late last March - wanted to see the Northern Lights and they aren't as visible in April so I went in March. I knew I was taking a risk with the weather... but her town had actually been warmer than ours in Illinois much of the winter so I thought it would be okay. NOT! The week I flew into her town was the coldest week they had ALL WINTER LONG. When I landed at her airstrip, it was 17 degrees below zero and the windchill was 34 below zero. That was in te daylight of mid-afternoon. I don't know how cold it got as the day progressed... but cold enough that my lungs burned/hurt when we walked to the Eskimo Dance that evening.

She's right on the Yukon River... and it really is a pretty setting!

Leaving a trail of friendly (((HUGS)))

Hello Friends... I wanted to pop in before settling in for the night to let you know that I will not be on SCS tomorrow... I'm going to be gone all day. I'll see you again on Thursday.

G'night!

Default Hello!

Hi ladies : ) Doing nothing today- my goal was to get through my blog list and comment : ) Mission accomplished- Yippee! Lots of wonderful inspiration!

I did not sleep well last night- have a tooth ache- throbbing and sensitive. Dentist will come in tomorrow to see me at 4PM. Keeping fingers crossed. She is my friend, and usually works Mon and Thursday, and I hate to imposition her.....

welcome Jeanette : )

Cindy- I am thinking- possibly- of trying a Christmas challenge blog for making cards, so I can have enough made to send people before it is too late- like I did this year......

Lou- I love your layouts with the splash of yellow especially! I did stop at Kims blog (Katydid) and she had a few digi layouts on her blog. I do not know HOW to do those.

I am going to be running all day tomorrow, will drop back in late in the week- we will be heading to Ky for the weekend, so not sure what day I will be back online : )

Waving hello to all

Shelly

And .......... school's back in! LOL!

Started the rat race again Monday, with a Bah Humbug attitude! I want a longer winter break! Especially since it got a lot cooler here - we had temps in the 60s! Yeah, I know .... that summer for a lot of ya'll, but I'm in Miami! It's a gorgeous change and we are happily enjoying our 3 days of WINTER - ROFL!

Shel, I'm with you -- I keep saying I'm going to start my CHristmas cards in January and just stock pile (kinda like Maggie did in SA!) but that seems to be the one type of card I don't make too often. I had my prototype for this years card all made and LOVED IT (very old SU! set, if you can imagine) and made a total of ONE card .... yep, just one.

I think I'm caught up on blog rounds ..... will do another run through. I posted a card yesterday and CANNOT get the lighting right no matter what I did - not sure if it was the color of the cardstock or what?!

Wishing everyone a great day!

Loving everyone's super cute graphic greetings

Just popping in. My cold is gone but yet I feel so lethargic with little energy. Also my lips are so chapped that they're cracking. Hurts so much; never had these problems before. Broke down and ordered a pair of Hunter boots due to the rain we'll be expecting.

After such blah energy to start off the new year, I get a lovely surprise in the mail yesterday from Cindy. Thank you so much friend for bringing a smile to my face and for reminding me to remember To craft and not get too caught up with making a living! Wise words indeed!

Thank you Cindy! It's on my desk at work to cheer me up!

Good Morning Friends!




Shelly, thank you for the welcome! I sure hoe your tooth is an easy fix and thatyou are pain free for your trip to KY!

Kelly, how funny. I am sure the people on your Christmas card list will not mind passing the card around. It will be kind of like a round-robin Christmas card.

Ching, I can certainly see how that gorgeous card made you smile!

Today I'm doing laundry, working on some cards, checking out some blogs, and buying some groceries to tide my guys over for a week. Tomorrow I leave for Alabama (taking 2 other ladies... and my Private Jet). Come home next Tuesday. Leave for Texas VERY early next Thursday, unless the weather is less-than-ideal. If that's the case, I'll leave Wednesday and stay in a hotel near the airport.

What's everybody else up to today???

Traveling right now sounds so amazing!! January is a really long month in Montana. Cold. Blah. Makes me have spring fever

Today I will be chasing after my 13 month old nephew and our new puppy. It's like having two kids. It's to cold to kick the puppy outside, unfortunately.

When I have a few minutes here and there I was planning to blog hop and visit everyone. It's been awhile. I've been neck deep in a course I am creating and pre-launching on Saturday. Chasing little ones is putting a crimp in my work time

Ohhh have a safe trip to Texas Jeanette!

I'm headed off to work. Finally feeling close to 100%. Just getting my ducks in a row for all the errands I need to complete after work today. My goal is to not live at work as much anymore, but then I feel the stress of uncompleted projects the next day and it just drags on.

Nothing exciting for me. Just trying to survive our sudden rain storms which we Angelenos are not used to. I did just order some new Hunter rain boots which will arrive as soon as Monday I hope. We're expecting a few rain storms I believe, so hopefully they'll get some good use.

Rhoda, I love to travel any time of year. And it is especially enjoyable when meetings are involved. I love meetings. BTW, I lived in Montana for a short while when I was a child... I remember fondly our times there, well, except the memory of crashing my bike when it got to coasting too fast down that hill in town. EEK! I also remember being there on vacation as an adult and how very vast the state is - loved the signs telling us how far to the next services.

Ching, I'm glad you're feeling much better... it is the pits to be sick. Take care, stay dry, and get to 100% soon!

Awesome Jeanette! Which part of Montana? You are right, it is a HUGE state! I'm in western Montana, about 30 miles from the Idaho border. Both my husband and I grew up in Salmon, Idaho so we are only about 70 miles from "home".

I have a number of "hill" crashes on my record as well. All part of the process I think
