Awe thanks Linda/Kathleen! It was my first time--and the middle mat is a lil' wonky...but I just had to learn it and once I did..now I need to make it MY size! It's really much easier than it looks when you start out....Reeeeally easy!

Hello, hello!!

Lots of chit chat here. I like the looks of those Simon Says Stamp card kits. Maybe I have to find room in the budget to get them next year.

At the same time...I TOTALLY have to use up what I have!!! It's outta control!

Not alot new here....well, I guess we have something new every day, but it all goes by so fast. Claire is feeling better (thank goodness) and has even slept through a couple of nights. She's capable of it, but just chooses to entertain Mommy at 3:30am.

She's working on her first word (other than Mama and Dada). It's "Ti!" We're still working on the "ger" part. She has a jungle themed wall hanging in her room and she loves the Tiger. So, DH has been working with her and now she says "Ti, Ti!". THEN we figured out why she likes that tiger. The cats walk by and she points and says "Ti, Ti!!!". Our cats are now walking tall. They've been elevated to tiger status.

She's also showing much more balance and is starting to stand on her own. She did it really well the other night. We were both ignoring her (hides face in shame) and I looked over and she must have forgotten what she was doing and let go of the couch to watch some tv. As soon as I whispered to my husband to check it out, she fell on her bum.

I just uploaded a another card "Criss X Christmas card"...I received a note back from SCS that they moved it to "Technique Spotlight"...Where is that and what does that mean? haha...Anyone know? Was it not good enough for the general card uploads? {Oh gosh...hope not}

Linda- I'll just buy a new bike next spring. The dealer said I should go to the winter with the old bike. A good idea and good for my wallet. I'll have time to save the money until then.

Joanna- Thanks for your new adress. From December 7 it can be used, right ?
AND sorry, I donīt know how your postal system works. I'm glad I understand the German I can not help - only hope If they do not arrive until the end of December, I'll probably make new ones.

Susanne- Your cards are awesome ! I think the SCS card slides into the right categories and i think itīs not bad

Heather- It is amazing how quickly children learn. Enjoy the moment. And wow, you've already tigers at home ! LOL

Angela- I hope you are feeling better today. It is indeed a disgrace to work with this smell. I like this CARD KIT SHOWER variant. But I go with anything the majority wants.

Good morning!

Headache is almost gone and I have been able to putz around at my leisure this morning...havn't been able to do that for over a week...it is good for the soul!

Ivy is home sick today...head cold, sore throat. She said there are a lot of sick kids at school.

Susanne, technique spotlight...that rocks!

Would really like to get crafty, but I find I have no mojo....

Good morning

Just a quick check-in for now.

Here's the new sketch challenge posted today; anyone wanna play?

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...D-t565059.html

Slept in this morning so I'm running late with breakfast and meds. It sure felt good to get the extra sleep.

Hope everyone is doing well.

Susanne, when a card is uploaded, instead of member gallery (which it will always be in regardless), that pull down menu has lots of categories and Criss-cross cards is one of the gallery selections. Hope that makes sense!

I want to craft so badly and just can't get enough hours in a row to really feel like I'm making headway on what I want to do. I love Christmas, but in this way, it drives me nuts!!! Too much to do!

Vickie, I'm up for the sketch challenge later today....

I love the way we are doing it now for at least one more round so that is my vote but I love it either way.

Thanks Tracie. I'll check them out. I use my copics a lot and have refilled almost all of them at one time or another. I started out like Kathy, grays and browns, skin combos and favorite color combos. Suzanne has lots of online coloring classes. I'm enrolled in the hair class but I haven't time to start it so far.

Gotta go get laundry out of my washer and load in dryer. Thank goodness they got my washer fixed before deer season. Today was the first day and Steve already got one after only hunting 4 hrs. Of course he has 4 tags to fill.

Linda, what are "tags to fill", never heard of that term. Wow, he got a deer quickly. I saw two today on either side of the road the preschool is on (both hit by cars), they must have been crossing together last night. It's a heavily traveled road, so they didn't have a chance. So glad your washer is fixed Linda, that is a relief!

Tracie, I just finished the Sweetness of Forgetting, too! Loved it, I recommended it to some friends. Might get the Julia Child one, that sounds good.

Imke, glad your bike will make it til spring, gives you some time to save for a new one.

Heather, I love Christmas, too. But agree, sometimes all the craziness can really be stressful.

Susanne, it's not bad that they moved it, they just will add it to a certain technique gallery, so it will show there, too. I've had that email, too, and thought I did something wrong, but it's nothing wrong!

Angela, hope Ivy feels better soon and glad your H/A is mostly gone.

I'm leaving for Florida tomorrow. DH is there for work already. He won 2 nights at some hotel about two years ago at a charity auction, and it will expire at the end of the year. So we are going to use it. Hope my inlaws are up for the kids! We will be back early Sat afternoon, so it will only be 48 hours. But I know 4 kids can be a handful!

All pages are postal (except Angelas, they are in your package for Dec.)! At long last, sorry for the hold up, I just hate photos of myself!

Vickie, will check out that sketch and see how it goes. Thanks for the link.

Okay, Vickie, here's my version of the sketch: White Christmas Wishes

I am still having trouble with my pages.... You would think the third time is a charm, but no...that batch of pictures turned out crummy too. Either no heads or blurry. The picture is saved to my computer and is clear and nice...when I print it, I am either blurry or part of my head is gone. I can't go to the kiosk and print it myself because I accidentally deleted the photos from the memory card. The kids get frustrated with me because I keep forgetting how, so I did it myself. I was so proud of myself until I realized what I had done! Good grief...I am just not techie! Will try to con Ivy into taking another shot...a lot of her photos are blurry because she is impatient and in a hurry. Are you sure I can't use a picture of Paisley instead? She is cuter too!

Angela, your sketch card is soooo cute! I hope to get to it this evening.

We've been on the phone most of the day with Jenni to get a new windshield installed in her car. The "no good" kicked and shattered it; cops won't do anything; her landlord has video survellience showing it happening but the person is masked and gloved. We just know it was the "no good." Her insurance doesn't have comp, and of course, she has no money, so my DH has been on phone with businesses in Canton to find a glass company that will go to her apartment to install the windshield. Finally, go it scheduled. AND, she is supposed to have her insurance agent call me so I can get comp included in her policy for the future and of course, pay the preminum. She is maintaining a B average, carrying a full load, so needed to get this done ASAP. One of her Profs let her do a test online today since she had no way to get to class. Always something!

Thank you, Vickie! I am not quite happy with the sentiment...wish I had done it differently, but didn't figure that out until I was finished. I used the Martha Stewart glitter that you sent me in a S.S. kit...LOVE it!

That is really crummy about the car, Vickie. Doesn't the surveillance count for anything? I remember all too well being in school and not having any money; I'm glad you are able to help your daughter out.

Oh good Vickie--wow that was quick! I figured you would use the cute stocking for your DGS? Isn't the Cadbury chocolate snowballs addicting? Haha I bought some for our house and thought--oh my gosh, get these things away from me--first their Cadbury eggs and now these? HELP!

Oh, your plaid placemats on the table are the same exact design as my TV room curtains--I'll take a photo--I had them in my living room--but they looked like a "Denist office" in there with off-white walls--so they were pushed over to the TV room when I moved the big couch into the room next door! haha...GMTA!

I really liked the MS stamp set--looks like you can really go to town and I bet it would match the "Art Gone Wild" kitchen/oven! Enjoy!

I got a great surprise today. Angela sent me an awesome kit. Angela, that is the Tilda I wanted the most and refused to buy another Tilda. I do love it and haven;t got to play or I would already have a card made with it. I loved everything you sent including the candy. I've already eaten half of it. Photos are not too good, my place is covered with Christmas cards to see how many more I need etc. Angela I really loved it all, you know me so well. It is all perfect. Thanks for everything.

Vicke, I made a card for the sketch challenge, entered it with 4 others into my gallery and they entered double, don;t ask me why so I deleted them. Will do over tomorrow. It isn;t anything like yours, your card is gorgeous!!!

Good Morning, ladies!

Wow, whole lotta chattin' and sharin' and enablin' going on around here! You can't miss more than a day around here, or it gets to be impossible to catch up!

Thinking of Denise as the storms head her way! Batten down the hatches, and stay safe. And I keep praying for your health...sorry to hear of your fall and the recent setback with the MS. Did the steroid injections help?

Pat, sorry to hear about your LSS . (I know this is a bit belated, as I am quite behind the times) How sad, especially since there are not a lot of good LSSs around, some around here have closed, and to have one that was thriving meet such an end is truly discouraging.

Oh, Vickie, how awful that Jenni is having troubles with the "no good"! Thank God she has your support and help!! Sounds like she is doing the best she can for herself, doing well in school. My heart just hurts for her and all she is going through.

Thanks, Jo, for the new addy! What a crazy time of the year to move, but exciting all the same!

Didn't get on the computer yesterday, so missed the sketch challenge, but I think I might be able to squeeze in some time in the craft room today to play a day late (I know you can play and post any of the challenges anytime, but it's more fun to be current).

Looking forward to seeing those scrapbook pages from Imke, Kathy, and Heather. (Hope Imke's aren't lost in the USPS vortex!)

Kathy, even though it's "only" 48 hours, it's still some quality time with the DH and no kiddos!! ENJOY your Florida trip!! I'm sure the in-laws will survive the four kids, after all, they survived raising their own. It's so much easier taking grandkids, cuz no matter what happens, you still get to return them to mom and dad!

Tracie, sounds like your classes are a success! Good for you!! I checked out the Simon Says card kits just because you posted the link, and had to get outta there fast...way too tempting and the wallet can't handle them right now. Besides I have some great kits from you ladies here that I need to work on!

Speaking of kits from here...I arrived home from meeting Daniel's bus yesterday to find a big ol' box left by the mailman. Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, it's like an early Christmas around here!!!! Many thanks to Angela for the AWESOME goodies! Everything is wonderful, a gorgeous 6x6 paper pack with matching cardstock, ribbons, and embellies (you always coordinate everything so beautifully!) Not to diminish the great kit, but I love, love, love the "little" extra you sent. Echo Park is one of my favorite companies, and I use their product a lot when I scrapbook photos of my favorite grandson. I don't have this particular paper pack, so was thrilled to receive it. And I have been eyeing a banner punch, just like the MFT die you sent, so I won't have to buy the punch!! How did you know I wanted something just like that! I've attached a photo, unfortunately it didn't turn out too well, but you get the idea (the Simply Caramel bar just didn't make it into the photo...)

Have a wonderful day, my friends!

Oh nuts, just got a phone call from DH. When he went camping in September, he took a hard fall, but seemed okay, except for some shoulder pain here and there. It's been bothering him enough that he went to see an ortho doc, who did an MRI on Friday. Today he found that he has several tears in his rotator cuff and will need surgery. Oh well...

Wow, like Patti said...you don't want to miss any time here....lots going on!

Linda and Patti, so glad your packages arrived! The mail was really quick...hope you will have fun playing with the contents!

What are Cadbury Snowballs? Do they have goo in them like the eggs?

Vickie, that stocking is adorable...so fun!

Patti, that is too bad about your DH. Does he get a "catch" with movement...or something that feels like a cramp or spasm? We see a few shoulders on the floor...rotator (or some say "rotary"---hee, hee) cuff repairs or total shoulder replacements.

Okay, here's a funny one.... DD just HAD to have some yoga pants. We found a pair shopping after Thanksgiving. She wanted to wear them today, so I ironed them and got them looking spiffy. As she is leaving, I notice that she has her boots on and the pants tucked in...also, a hoodie on that covers the cute rolled waistband. I asked why her pants are tucked in? She looks at me like I am a complete idiot..."Well, you don't wear them over your boots!" Well alrighty then...I am wondering why she couldn't just wear the leggings she already had?! Or not wear the yoga pants with boots?! Guess I am just not "cool" anymore!

LOL, Angela, you are supposed to tuck yoga pants into boots??? I wear mine with sneakers, I'm so not hip! My oldest tells me all the time. Ivy would probably fall over if she got a look at me, lol!

Patti, that stinks about the shoulder! Hope the surgery is smooth for him. Poor guy can't catch a break this year.

Fun kits, I had to laugh when Patti and Linda both said the candy was open already. That's me too! Love a little sweet something!

I've never had a Cadbury snowball either, going to have to look into that!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Kathleen, I really don't think you are supposed to tuck the pants into boots.... LOL I don't know, you sound pretty hip to me.... Enjoy your trip!

I havn't done this month's SFYTT yet, so I hatched a plan and then went to find the "right" paper...that is the hardest part for me. Anyone else spend way too much time trying to figure that out?

[QUOTE=Kathleen Curry;19853938]Linda, what are "tags to fill", never heard of that term. QUOTE]

Hunting regulations issue "tags" to hunters. Helps control the hunting, prevent over-hunting, etc. Each tag represents an animal that they can get and it's different each year and sometimes in different jurisdictions. Once you fill your tags, you can't shoot anymore of that animal for the year, unless you purchase a new tag (if possible). For some animals, (moose, elk), tags are only issued to hunters who enter and win a "draw" at the beginning of the season. There's only so many tags for that animal and if you win the draw, you win the right to purchase the tag and hunt for that animal. Those tags only give you one animal. Others, like a generic deer tag, may be for multiple animals (sometimes of a certain size or gender). If you were found with an animal you didn't have a tag for, you could be charged under Fish and Wildlife legislation for illegal hunting. So, once you get your animal, you generally attach the tag to the animal somewhere so that it's identified.

Thanks Heather! That explains it perfect. They used to do the draw in Kansas but think they have an abundance of deer so they can just purchase as many tags as they want. Steve always gets 4 so that if anyone in the family is having a hard time financially he gives them deer burger or deer sausage etc. to help them with groceries. He gives as much away as he eats himself. There is always cousins, nieces, nephews etc in a large family out of a job or something going on. He is a good guy.

Finally got my card uploaded. Vickie and Angela your cards are both fantastic. Mine not so much. I already had the image ready to go so just used it. Now I want to do another one with a different image, but don't know if I will have time.

Kathy, have fun in florida. The weather will be a break for you I hope and it is always good to get a little break from the kids. I think it does the kids as much good as the parents.

I am sure Ivy know something we don;t know about current style. lol!!
Glad she is feeling better.

Patti, so sorry about your DH. Hope the surgery goes smooth and that he is a good patient for you. Glenn has had so much illness that he is a pretty good patient most of the time but MEN can be such babies sometimes .

Susanne, there is a lot of fun things on SCS. I used to participate a lot more in a lot of different challenges and WRAK and RAK. I am still a birthday fairy for WRAK. I just don't seem to have time to do all I want to do.

Vickie, hope the no good gets caught. That does not seem fair that they have it on tape but couldn't be positive it was him. Hope he leaves her alone, sounds like she is doing wonderful if he would stay out of her life.

Heather, so glad Claire is doing great. Won't be long until she is walking if she is getting brave and turning loose. She is such a cutie.

I need to get busy.

Angela- Paisley is cute, but I'd like a photo of you About Ivy you do not mind, I think parents are always cool LOL Great story.

Kathy- Have a great time in Florida , enjoy the weather and your time together. Is probably very rare that you are without children.

Patti- Sorry to hear that about your DH. I hope the surgery is successful and brings healing for his shoulder. Your Kit from Angela looks so nice. Have fun with it !

Linda- Your card looks great. I like the bright colors and the jummy jar. Wish you also much fun with your card kit shower.

Vickie- Your kit looks also great. I like the stocking-great idea. Sorry about your DD car. What a stupid fool. Luckily nothing happened to her. Fortunately she can count on your support.

Linda, Vickie, your challenge cards are great. I have to go and leave a comment. You are busy gils !

Imke, Paisley is not too cute today.... DH bought her a nice, big pillow for bedding and she chewed/ripped it up overnight....

Linda, are you trying to say that Kathleen and I are not hip and cool? LOL I think your card turned out great!

Linda and Patti, so glad your packages arrived! The mail was really quick...hope you will have fun playing with the contents!

What are Cadbury Snowballs? Do they have goo in them like the eggs?

Vickie, that stocking is adorable...so fun!

Patti, that is too bad about your DH. Does he get a "catch" with movement...or something that feels like a cramp or spasm? We see a few shoulders on the floor...rotator (or some say "rotary"---hee, hee) cuff repairs or total shoulder replacements.

Okay, here's a funny one.... DD just HAD to have some yoga pants. We found a pair shopping after Thanksgiving. She wanted to wear them today, so I ironed them and got them looking spiffy. As she is leaving, I notice that she has her boots on and the pants tucked in...also, a hoodie on that covers the cute rolled waistband. I asked why her pants are tucked in? She looks at me like I am a complete idiot..."Well, you don't wear them over your boots!" Well alrighty then...I am wondering why she couldn't just wear the leggings she already had?! Or not wear the yoga pants with boots?! Guess I am just not "cool" anymore!
I don't even know if they are called "snowballs" they are red, green and white solid Cadbury chocolate balls (round as opposed to M&Ms flat round) with a shell on the outside--tasty lil' suckers!

Aaack Paisley...bad cute puppy! Both of my Labbies have chowed on pillows--the newer the more chewed...Sour apple spray? Sorry this happened--Muddy has a chair with a chair cover in the living room--we almost threw out this old chair--bought one of those blue jean denim chair covers--when it gets dirty/smelly...goes into the wash--he has never chewed or ripped it!

Angela--oops..forgot to mention this part--the more we ran Muddy/Kippy...like really-really tired them out--the less they 'took it out' on chewing things in the house! Just when you think they are good and tired...throw the chuckit ball 6 more times! hahaha

Speaking of fashion...K has 2 fancy corsets that I would not allow her to wear because they simply look like "hooker clothes"! She claims 'everyone is wearing them with a blazer over'...I say...NOPE..you are asking for trouble!

Then, one day she comes home from the mall with this funky-dorky hat--blue plaid and reminds me of something Sherlock Holmes would wear? HUH? Way too much for her petite frame and small Irish pale face... It looks so bad on her that I had to refrain from laughing out loud--I thought it had something to do with a Halloween costume! I kept quiet and eventually we talked about it--mind you she's tiny--5.2...this hat just smashes her down smaller and it's just so ugly on her!!! (I didn't tell her the ugly part) hahaha...Thank goodness that went up on the shelf!

This thread has to be the best entertainment source.

Imke - I received your 6 x 6 page today. Not sure where we even started that post, here or Monthly image but it is such a good picture of you.

So now we not only enable each other with crafts but now I am off to find Cadbury snowballs. I love anything chocolate.

Angela - I am putting your package in the mail tomorrow. I know you will get a kick out of the wrapping but it was all that I had.

My brother in law works in Vancouver and always sends us Canadian candies. Last month he sent Reeses balls (we have Reeses but not in ball form) and Sweeties which are chocolate m&m with a hard shell coating. Love the Reeses ... tho we call them sweatie-balls.

Holli has been a terror today too. I was trying to pack up the basement. She dug a hole outside and then chewed a spider plant to oblivion. Sigh. Good thing she's so cute.
