"I Dream Of Paper" Blog Group *FULL*
I have decided that as a normally motivated papercrafting blogger that has lately not been able to craft due to real life becoming busier, that surely there must be others like me out there looking for friends :)

If you are a busy papercrafter that would love to have friends to leave you love when you do sporadically (SP?) post your creations that you manage to get done on an irregular or regular basis, you are what this group needs.....

I hate rules so lets call these guidelines.....

1 - Try and post at least one a week, if you don't no worries but it would be more exciting if it was a little more regularly than once every 2 months.

2 - comment on fellow groupies at least once every two weeks if they have a new post.

3 - add the group members on your blog sidebar with the update date thing so you can keep track when the group members do update.

4 - Check in here occasionally and leave a message so we know you are still an active member.
and ummm well that's it really, if you are interested add a post to this thread and we will cap the number at 10 - 12 so as not to overwhelm people with a huge list to comment on.

Okies, look forward to getting some members and getting to know them a little better.:D

I'm interested in joining! I post to my blog when my mojo is cooperating and sometimes when it isn't!

loulou31 11-27-2011 04:08 PM

Yay, sounds like you are exactly who I aimed this at :) WELCOME!!!!!!

Paige 11-28-2011 03:34 PM

Lou, I had fun checking out your blog. Love your use of bright colors on your cards!

creativec 01-29-2012 01:07 PM

Hello ladies!

May I join you? :)

I used to blog quite a bit before then life got in the way and I dropped it. I started a new blog (just yesterday!) and plan to be regular at it. A blogging group to share the love is probably just the thing to keep me on track!

Paige 01-29-2012 01:53 PM

Hi Chaitali!
It's been so quiet here. Hope that Lou wants to give this group another try!

loulou31 01-29-2012 02:12 PM

I am keen still. We may want more than 3 people though :)

creativec 01-30-2012 10:27 AM

Lets keep bumping up this thread and perhaps more will join :) I'll add you both to my bloglist today evening.

Paige 01-31-2012 05:30 AM

good morning ladies!
i hope to get crafty today and try out some new nesties with matching stamps i got in the mail yesterday.

Luv2Craft04 02-20-2012 07:00 PM

I'm interested in blogging!
I'm a new blogger who is hoping to make some scrappy friends here as well as get feedback on my projects. This sounds like a fun group. My blog is [email protected]


loulou31 02-22-2012 04:15 PM

Hi Marcy
Great to have you on board, I will add your name and blog to the list on the first post and stop by your blog and join as a follower :)

Paige 02-23-2012 03:56 PM

I added our blog list to my sidebar.

Welcome Marcy! Hi Chaitali and Lou!

loulou31 03-15-2012 12:34 PM


mschoener 03-16-2012 11:28 AM

One can always use new blogging friends. I'd love to join also!

creativec 03-16-2012 02:27 PM

Hello ladies. Sorry didn't check in here often. I'm off to visit you all now!

I was thinking of making a blinkie for our group. What does everyone think?

Also how do you ladies feel about doing a regular challenge in the group? We can decide on how regularly we want it (weekly, biweekly, monthly).

Paige 03-17-2012 03:58 PM

Welcome Maggie!

Good ideas Chaitali!

Waving hello to everyone!

loulou31 03-18-2012 05:40 PM

Welcome to the group Maggie.
I will make a badge for our little group and send it out. If you want one can you PM me your home email addresses. I am not sure if it would work attaching it here.

loulou31 03-18-2012 05:47 PM

ummmmm, how many members should we cut at? I hadn't really thought about it, and the doors aren't exactly being broken down in the rush to join. :)

mschoener 03-18-2012 06:14 PM

Thank you ladies for the welcome! So glad to see Paige and Lou here that I know from another blogging group.

loulou31 03-18-2012 06:25 PM

lol maggie, only this one for me now. Commenting was getting behind :)
Thanks for your email, I will wait on the others then get the badge out.

loulou31 03-19-2012 09:58 PM

Thanks for the email addys ladies, fingers crossed for a few new members

erynlee 03-20-2012 09:47 AM

Hey everyone! I would like to join your group! I was looking at joining a blogging group, but not sure if I could commit to posting 2 to 3 times a week. I am aiming to post at least once. My blog is new, almost as new as I am to stamping, lol! Let me know what you need me to do to join! :) (PS- Thanks for commenting on my blog and bringing this group to my attention!)

loulou31 03-20-2012 01:48 PM

great Eryn, welcome aboard!
Can you please pm me your home email so I can send you a badge for our group?

erynlee 03-20-2012 01:58 PM

Email address sent Lou! Hello everyone, I look forward to getting to know you all! :)

loulou31 03-20-2012 01:59 PM

Hi Ladies....
Thanks Eryn for the PM.
Eryn asked a very valid question......
Should she put a blog list on her sidebar? Yes please :) I think we should have a list, what do you ladies think?

creativec 03-20-2012 02:00 PM

Yay we are growing! Welcome Eryn!

Yup we should have the blog list on our blogs! I have mine on one of my blog pages right now but will be redesigning my blog this weekend so I can move all lists to the sidebar

Paige 03-20-2012 02:15 PM

I agree that a list on the sidebar is the way to go. It makes it so much easier to see when we update our blogs and for commenting.

Welcome Eryn!

Waving hello to everyone!

loulou31 03-20-2012 03:22 PM

I have just sent out your shiny new blog badges :)
Hope you like them.

winnieu 03-20-2012 03:27 PM

Hi guys. Thank you Louise for inviting me over here to join your group. I would love to. Thanks for checking out my blog too! This may sound like a weird question, but how do I add the "list" to my sidebar? I am not computer savy yet (had someone set it up for me!) I am on Blogger. This will be fun! Can't wait to meet you all....

loulou31 03-20-2012 03:32 PM

Yay Winnie, welcome to the group and also welcome to the wonderful world of blogging
To set up a blog list you go into your dashboard on your blog (you can find the dashboard link in the top right hand corner of your blog) select the layout tab on the lefthand side. This brings up a layout of your blog, click on add a gadget on one of the sides of your blog, wherever you would like the list to be, then scroll down and select "Add Bloglist" then one by one add the links to our blogs from the first message on the thread. Any problems let me know.

Paige 03-20-2012 03:41 PM

Have the badge up - thanks Lou!

Welcome Winnie!

mschoener 03-20-2012 04:43 PM

Wow! The group is growing . Hi ladies. Got the badge. Thanks Lou. Yes, I need to update my blog also to add you guys to my sidebar along with the Badge.

erynlee 03-20-2012 04:46 PM

added the badge and the blogroll. my blog is starting to look more professional, lol! thanks everyone. off to comment on all your blogs, I love to look at other people's work for inspiration.

mschoener 03-21-2012 09:44 AM

I worked on my Teapot Tuesday card last night and then had to get my blog updated for my PSC post that went live this morning. Very busy. I'm planning to get around to everyone's blogs today or tonight. I did get mine updated with 2 new posts. Happy Hump Day!

Paige 03-21-2012 09:52 AM

I just posted my card for today's SCS sketch challenge. Now I'm looking to see what you all have been up to!

Have a good one!

loulou31 03-21-2012 12:04 PM

Hi ladies
i have finally got around to adding you all on my sidebar.
I have also fixed the link to Marcy so it works now.
I am soooooo gutted, I was carrying my laptop into the lounge room and my daughter rushed past and knocked it from my hands, the corner is all smashed up where I insert my memory card. I have managed to push it together and tape it si with a bit of jiggling the card uploads. It is an insurance job I think but I need to back up my digis before I take it in.

winnieu 03-21-2012 06:22 PM

Lou-hope it can be fixed!
I hope they are able to fix your lap top...I carry mine up and down the basement steps (I stamp down there currently) and I am always afraid it will go flying..I don't need anyone bumping me, I can do this all on my own.

erynlee 03-21-2012 06:36 PM

I hope they can fix your laptop too, that sucks!

mschoener 03-22-2012 03:36 AM

Bummer Lou on the laptop. I hope that you get everything uploaded from it and can get it fixed. I got insurance for my laptop when I bought it. Covers it no matter what happens.

creativec 03-22-2012 08:52 AM

Oh no Lou! Sorry about the laptop. Hope it gets fixed.

I have been uploading all my digis to my cloud drive so I can access it anywhere. Same with my photos -- uploading to my albums. Just prepping for a clumsy day with my laptop since I have plenty of those (the clumsy days I mean) :?

Been visiting you all today ladies! Updated my blog with our badge and member list.
