jimlynn 02-27-2011 09:29 AM

Great!!!! Maybe we'll get everything running again! Keep that cold air up there in Canada....I'm in shorts and flip flops here!!!!

SNBoutique 02-27-2011 09:34 AM

YEAH LYNN!!!! :)

Paige 02-27-2011 09:54 AM

checking in! I've been out of town and away from my beloved stamp room - going through withdrawal!

mcschmidty 02-27-2011 03:37 PM

Checking in- Thanks Lynn! I will have to change the name on my blog later on too.....!


lcamacho123 02-27-2011 05:27 PM

Just stopping by to say Hi

stampnangel 02-27-2011 06:22 PM

here i am...

jimlynn 02-28-2011 12:42 PM

Still trying to get a head count here - so far the only ones that haven't responded are Jan, Karen, and Taim! Hey, ladies....where are you guys?
Hope everyone is having a good Monday!

mcschmidty 03-01-2011 08:54 PM

Just dropping in to say hello. I had some fun today stamping- added a tutorial on my blog for taking a punched strip to fit a curve or circle........

My sewing skills apply to stamping sometimes too- this is how you make fabric fit say a sleeve area- with a curve- or around a collar..... (referring to the tutorial).....

We have a warm up here- the ice and icicles in the trees are falling as they melt...... imagine that Lynn! My dog does not like it at all....it is raining little pieces of ice. This time of year, when everything starts melting, the flooding will start too. I grew up with a river in the back of the house and it was always something when the ice broke- bug hunks of ice with boats, docks, etc would be floating down the river- a site to see.

How is everyone???


jimlynn 03-02-2011 02:24 PM

Great tutorial Shelly! I'll try it.
Just checking in to see if anyone has heard from Karen, Tami or Jan?
Hope everyone is having a good day!

Feline Creative 03-03-2011 03:27 AM

Hi ladies, I'm here and doing OK but am going to drop out of the group as I've not been very good at visiting everyone lately. I'll keep in touch and visit when I can.

jimlynn 03-03-2011 02:01 PM

Oh Karen, sorry you're dropping out! Keep in touch though and let us know how you're doing......You know you're always welcomed back if you decide to do that.


jimlynn 03-03-2011 06:57 PM

I'm having trouble adding a photo to my post tonight (scheduled for tomorrow). It just doesn't want to do a single thing. Has anyone else tried to add a photo tonight?
Just wondering if it was me or everyone.

stampnangel 03-04-2011 11:06 AM

i just wanted to let you know i haven't forgotten about everyone this week has been hectic but i'll get back to my normal commenting next week. i'll have a lot tocatch up on

jimlynn 03-05-2011 04:17 PM

Sure has been quiet around here lately! How is everyone?
Still haven't heard if Tami or Jan still want to be in the group. Does anyone know? If we don't hear something soon, I'll contact them again about it.
Hope everyone is having a good weekend.

stampnangel 03-06-2011 04:07 AM

lynn after you find out about the others are you going to open up to new members so we stay at 10?

how's your shoulder?

jimlynn 03-06-2011 04:29 AM

Carrie, I think 10 is a good number and yes, thought about opening it up. If Tami and Jan don't want in it anymore that leaves us with only 7 - since Karen dropped out.
Let me contact Tami and Jan again today and see if I hear something back. I guess we can either open it up - or what we could do, if anyone knows of someone that'd like to be in the group, throw them a mesaage to invite them. What do you think?

The shoulder.............not good. Going to get a MRI this week and then go from there I guess. It appear it's a pinched nerve in the neck that's causing all the problems. Can't raise my left arm......now stop and think about that for a minute! Hubby has to hold the hair dryer for me while I ty to blow dry my hair every morning!! LOL! Alot of pain and no sleep....but hey, it could be worse I know! So I just keep plugging away. Thanks for asking..........


jmscheller 03-06-2011 04:35 AM

Huh???? Have I missed something or am I just not reading this properly? Jan & Tami don't want to be in the challenge group? I sure hope that's not true... gad, everyone seems so super busy these days!
I hope your shoulder is better soon Lynn & that makes sense to me that a pinched nerve is causing all the trouble so I hope they can do something for it.

jimlynn 03-06-2011 04:51 AM

Marilyn, no Tami and Jan are in the CHALLENGE group just don't know if they are still in the Stamp Addicts group here on SCS. Jan actually responded to my PM about staying in the group and indicated she was going to but she hasn't checked in here yet, so I don't know. Tami never responded to the PM I sent her when we changed our name to Stamp Addicts and also hasn't checked in here. I'm going to PM both of them today to see what they're going to do.


jmscheller 03-06-2011 04:58 AM

Ahhh... thanks Lynn. That clears that up... & what a relief.

jimlynn 03-06-2011 05:25 AM

I PM'd Tami and Jan just now and Tami PM'd back and said she was staying here! Hopefully will hear back from Jan today!

Tamidolphin 03-06-2011 06:08 AM

Hi chickadees:) Aly had the flu and strep this week so I am behind in everything. Just got the gingerloft and Aly's challenges up. I think it is back to bed for me for a bit then off to Michaels and a new Joann's

SNBoutique 03-06-2011 07:06 AM

Glad to see I haven't been receiving updates from SCS... Ugh! I hate when that happens. Boy what a difference a weekend makes. I hate to see Karen go...

Janet Hunnicutt 03-06-2011 09:58 PM

Hey, I made it finally! Thanks for inviting me now I need to figure out how to subscribe and be able to return once I leave.

Janet Hunnicutt 03-06-2011 10:03 PM

I did it! I figured out how to subscribe to the thread now I need to figure out how to get e mails so I can keep up.

I hope you are all doing okay! Alissa InLinkz drew a winner for the Stamps R Us blog I'll e mail you as soon as she contacts me so you can distribute one more prize. Thank you so much for your help.

stampnangel 03-07-2011 03:45 AM

Good Morning Ladies. Well I'm finally caught up. I spent an hour this morning leaving comments on everyone's cards that I missed last week. Hope this week is back to normal for me. Have a great day.

jimlynn 03-07-2011 05:27 PM

Tami, hope Aly is doing better now! What all did you buy at Michaels and JoAnn's?
Jan, SO GLAD you made it over here - if I'm not mistaken you SHOULD get automatic updates now when someone comments. It's kinda like Alissa said though - sometimes we do and sometimes not. I usually just try to check it every few days if there's no updates.
I go tomorrow for a MRI on my neck/shoulder, etc.....pain in the behind - not take that back......it's a pain in the shoulder, neck, etc! LOL! Can't get in to see the doctor until next Tuesday though so that's kinda stressing me out.....We'll see I guess.
Hope everyone has a good week.

mcschmidty 03-07-2011 09:23 PM

Hello all! I just wanted to drop in really quickly....had a wild weekend! I also did the OWH blog hop- which was fun, but I spent hours hopping and am only about 1/2 way done...... It is such a good cause though, will do what I can to get through it- a few blogs here and there- I should be done by the end of the week......

My daughter was home over the weekend from Ohio, and I had friends over for stamping after work Friday (night) then we invited some engineers that work with my husband- here from China- over for dinner and games Sat night. I worked today..off tomorrow- yeah!

Lynn, sorry to hear you are having such a rough time- I hope you get some relief ASAP! Tami- hope you get rid of the flu in your home ASAP!

Yeah! Glad everyone has made it here- sorry to see Karen go.

Ok- off to bed.

Feline Creative 03-10-2011 05:15 AM

jimlynn 03-11-2011 04:29 PM

Just popping in to say hi and hope everyone has a great weekend!

Hi Lynn :)

Hope everyone is having a good tuesday. My son has another doc appt today, we just can't seem to shake these ear infections he's getting. I'm hoping he's not going to need tubes. So if I happen to miss commenting on anyone's blogs that's why its been one doc visit after another around here. I did make rounds this morning. Hope everyone has a good day

jimlynn 03-15-2011 12:09 PM

Carrrie.....hopefully all will be well with your son! Both of my granddaughters had to get the tubes in the ears....the youngest one had hers done when she was like 18 months old! Not a fun time for mom when that happens!
Give him a great big hug!

jimlynn 03-19-2011 06:35 AM

Just checking in to see how everyone is doing......not much activity around our group site lately.
Carrie, hopefully all is ok with your son.
Shelly, you and your family are in my prayers.
I had an injection in my neck/vertebra yesterday for this pinched nerve. No relief yet. Keep your fingers crossed for me......
Hope everyone is doing ok.

mcschmidty 03-19-2011 08:09 PM

Stopping by to say hi........

Wow- it has been a whirlwind here! Our daughter came home for the weekend last weekend- she is going on a cruise for spring break this week (senior year with her sorority sis'). Our son came home yesterday for a week- he will be in Colorado all summer for an internship, so coveting every moment. I am planning college visits for next week with my youngest- Univ of Ill and Notre Dame- and she has seen Mich State.

My oldest brother (54) has a 4 yr old....really- who was just diagnosed with a large kidney tumor, and will be having a kidney removed Monday at Childrens Hosp in Cincinnati. My brother is really dirt poor, so not only do we feel so sad Bryan has this issue, but one more thing for my brother to deal with! They are hanging in there, and I will probably head down there later next week.......

Wow- hope everyone is well!

stampnangel 03-21-2011 03:21 AM

I left comments this morning on blogs. Great creations!!! Paige I had a heck of a time going back and forth on yours so I'll have to go back to finish leaving comments. Didnt you used to have a pop up box for comments? Or maybe I'm thinking of someone else. Hope you all have a great day. Lynn I hope your shoulder feels better soon. Are you on facebook?

mcschmidty 03-22-2011 01:32 PM

Hello to all!

My little nephew had his surgery yesterday- he IS going to have to have chemo and radiation because the tumor was connected to his liver........

If anyone would consider dropping him or the family a card...here is his address:
Bryan McGovern
7744 Arrowwood Drive
Florence Kentucky

I just got home from taking my husband for his Big 5-0 Colonoscopy (his first one ever). He asked me over and over- did the Dr. come by yet? What did he say? By the 7th or 8th time, I was laughing- sorry- it;s the nurse in me.....Versed is a wonderful drug- it has a forgetful property to it...we used it alot in the Intensive Care Unit when I worked there...........

How is everyone??? Lynn, how is the pinched nerve? Has it calmed down at all? How is your hubby doing?

Laura- how are you doing???

Carrie- did your little one need to have ear tubes???

Is Aly better- no more throat issues?

Marilyn- no health issues??? LOL I have not heard form you....Paige? Anyone? Any exciting news???

My son is home on Spring break. He has an internship lined up in Breckenridge for the summer- he is really excited- he claims he is never coming back to Illinois!....(Boo) I mean to live permanently.......

I am off next week and am going to take little one to visit Notre Dame and Illinois. And, will head to Ky for a few days.


stampnangel 03-22-2011 04:01 PM

oh shelly your family is in my prayers.

that's funny about your dh. no so far no on the tubes his ear was actually clear last visit with some minor scarring. he's on another 10 day round of meds for a sinus infection so keeping fingers crossed

enjoy your time off next week
