No More Drama
When I go into my craft room or sit down with friends to get inky, it should feel like a sanctuary. A place for creative and postive thoughts.

I want to leave all the drama, issuse and stress at the door.

I love my friends and I am there for them as they are there for me, but not here. This just isn't the place for all that negative junk. It all leaves me feeling blah and it shows in my projects.

Maybe it's just me, maybe I am being selfish.

As Mary J. Blidge says..
Hooh it feels so good
When you let go
Of all the drama in your life
Now you're free from all the pain
Free from all the games
Free from all the stress
So find your happiness

LaurieR 03-19-2010 11:14 AM

Hey there...I think I could learn to like no drama and stress!

I was told earlier today that I can go get the car fixed, and now they came back and said a field adjustor has to come see the damage. I am not so happy about that.

Did Tom text you the pic of the wall in my new stamp room??? It is turning out SO pretty!!!

sempermom 03-19-2010 01:21 PM


NOPE not at all!!!! i agree 100 Bazillion Percent with you ;)

sempermom 03-19-2010 01:22 PM

no cell phones is a good thing too LOL

vikkijo 03-19-2010 05:09 PM

Oh yes, exactly! Isn't that so rude?!
Cell phones ringing a loud ring tone to start with, and then the talking while visiting. Uff da!

Laurie, I was wondering what that pic was! LOL
I was driving so I couldn't look real close or read it until now.

Ahh it is peaceful right now... all I can hear is one dog snoring while the other 2 play down the hall. Louie (my cat) is in my chair behind me trying to make more room for him! LOL

It's Friday night I am home alone, and gonna get inky! Too bad it's not VSN this weekend!

So sempermom.. what's your name?

vikkijo 03-19-2010 05:15 PM

So Laurie what color are you doing with the Almost Amethyst?I can't wait till you are all moved in and decorated! I am so excited for you!
Are you going to have curtains or are you going to stamp on the windows?

Kjpp 03-19-2010 05:44 PM

That is why I LOVE to stamp alone...or just with my sister. NO DRAMA. This is MY time. I couldn't have anyone complaining! I am a store manager in a retail business. I do NOT want to hear complaints while I do something I LOVE to do!

vikkijo 03-19-2010 06:21 PM

Hi Karen! I love your quote in your signature!

Kjpp 03-19-2010 08:02 PM

Hi Vicki! LOL...I live by my quote...LOL!

LaurieR 03-20-2010 06:28 AM

Tom is putting a new floor in Vikki. I think I sent you a pic last night. Anyways. I have a black valance that goes on the window, and think I will get a shade. There is a gray blind in there now, but I don't know if I want to keep that.

I can't wait to be settled in. Hopefully it will all work out.

We are going to OG for dinner tonight. Can't wait!!!

vikkijo 03-20-2010 07:20 AM

Oh I can't wait for pics of your new room! It sounds like it's coming along just fine!!

LaurieR 03-20-2010 07:25 AM

It took a little encouraging, but let me tell ya, now he is all motivated. It's good! Where is Kerriann???

vikkijo 03-20-2010 07:33 AM

I don't know, she was hanging laundry last time we chatted. Which was 9 pm my time! LOL
I have a hard time remembering she is 12 hours ahead of me! LOL

Hey, can you tell me how lines I have in my signature? On my screen I see 4, but a mod has asked me to fix it... I am so confused.

LaurieR 03-20-2010 07:35 AM

I see four. How come you have to change it???

So she is 12 hours ahead of us....so it's 9:30 pm there....

vikkijo 03-20-2010 07:44 AM

yep actually I think she is 11 hours ahead of us. I'll go check I have the world time zone link in my faves. LOL

As for my signature, I'm not sure what's wrong but the # of lines was highlighted in her pm to me. I pm'd her back, but I don't wanna be breaking rules.. I gotta fix it. This is part of her note to me..

* Signatures may contain a maximum of 3 off-site links.
* Promotional language and referral links are not allowed.
* *Keep your signatures to 5 lines total. This will still give you plenty of room for fun and creativity.*
* No limit of number of SCS links as long as it fits into the line limit.
* Keep signatures at or below a size 4 font.
* No blinkies, pictures, animations.

Since I don't always have working brain cells, can you see where my sig is wrong ???

Maybe I need some food, I can't think yet. LOL

LaurieR 03-20-2010 07:46 AM

Sorry, but I can't figure it out either. I see four lines, and I don't see that you have anything else wrong. PM her back and ask specifically what is wrong. I'm curious!

vikkijo 03-20-2010 08:03 AM

hee heee.. it's all fixed!
She mis took the quote of Mary J as part of my signature!
She'd fit right in my world.. since I live in the state of Confusion! LOL
I've been staring at that darn thing since about 9 am. too funny!

sempermom 03-20-2010 08:13 AM

sempermom 03-20-2010 09:35 AM

vikkijo 03-20-2010 03:25 PM

My day took a turn somewhere..
1 Attachment(s)
i had such great intentions of being crafty today!
My son calls.. him and his gf got a kitten and couldn't keep it so we drove up (about 20 miles north) to get it.

This is Max, with our cat Louie
He was born sometime around Valentines. He is so tiny.
Our Beagle, Joker likes him. The Bassett Hound April seems afraid of him (now that's funny) and Montana couldn't care less! (he is a Australian Kelp and Pomeranian mix)

vikkijo 03-20-2010 03:26 PM

Yea Holly I see your name!!!!!
How's your gallery? Off to look there now!

LaurieR 03-20-2010 03:35 PM

I am home from work...going out for dinner if Tom ever gets here.

Holly, I need to get inky...probably won't happen tonight though.

vikkijo 03-20-2010 03:41 PM

Been to Karen's gallery... WOW there are some CASE worthy cards in there. :)

vikkijo 03-20-2010 03:43 PM

Where are you going for dinner? Clint asked me to make some Chili dogs. and Butterscotch Pudding.. odd taste buds I tell ya! LOL

Kjpp 03-20-2010 04:06 PM

Hi Vicki! Thank you for the nice comments. I love making cards, but I don't think I'm at all that good. My sister Ann always WOWs me with her cards. She's the one that got me into this mess...loll! I broke both my legs about three years ago and was in a wheelchair for a bit. The card making keep me sane! I just got home from work about an hour ago. Dinner tonight is subs for hubby and a salad..of course with wine... for me! Although the chili dogs sound soooo good from here!

vikkijo 03-20-2010 05:03 PM

I want a salad! LOL
Yep I checked out your sisters gallery too, one I found really WOW'd me too!

Here's Annie's pyramid-o-fun

sempermom 03-21-2010 08:24 AM

Good Morning! well, ok, so its almost noon ha ha..still workin on my coffee here!

Max is adorable! i got a few things cut and ready to sew yesterday. Our son made it in for part of the weekend,so today we will have an early dinner of Ham and all the yummy sides! tomorrow and the next will be left overs LOL

Karen, you gallery IS beautiful!

i havent gotten around to doing mine yet...its on the ever growing list of to-do's!

sempermom 03-21-2010 08:26 AM

that pyramid is gorgeous!

wouldnt they make great table favors! HMM......................the wheel is squeakin............

vikkijo 03-21-2010 09:44 AM

ooh Dinner at Holly's!

Clint, my bf, had all his teeth removed to prepare for dentures.. so I am getting bored with 'gummable' foods! LOL I put a Round steak int he slow cooker.. I hope he can eat it.

I was thinking the same thing about the Pyramid .. like place cards too!

I am working on a OSW Christmas cards (I joined a group that is making monthly Christmas cards so they are done well before it's time)
I am using the Cricut to cut all the bases, I already cut the printed paper to do a different OSW and then changed my mind.
Actually I bought all 11 sheets and cut them all up into OSW's (all different) back in January.. so I jumped the gun a bit! LOL
I see some of the cards being done and and think.. oh this would be so pretty with this paper... but its already cut up! LOL

So Laurie, how was dinner with Tom?

Kjpp 03-21-2010 01:34 PM

Vikki, your gallery is beautiful! So much to look at! I'm planning on sitting down on Tuesday morning with my coffee and having fun going through it! You are one busy talented lady!

Kjpp 03-21-2010 01:37 PM

Holly, I love project runway! Tonight is amazing race. I enjoy all those kind of shows! Was a beautiful warm day yesterday...today it's cloudy and cold. That's one thing about New England...the weather always makes you throw on shorts..and then an hour later, you are wearing a coat!

justannie 03-21-2010 01:58 PM

well, naturally, i have to jump onto this train since my sister has put me here! thanks for your kind comments. i'm nothing special--i case most of my best stuff. one of my favorite stampers is zindorf. she is A-mazing! and stamping is definitely a calming influence in a messy, crazy world!

vikkijo 03-22-2010 11:05 AM

Karen Minnesota weather is much like yours... it was so nice out yesterday, now I am freezing my butt off! (wishful thinking!LOL)

Annie.. I Love Zindorf's work too! some of her projects are very awesome!! I even have her blog in my following!

vikkijo 03-22-2010 12:42 PM

Have any of you seen the latest style cards? Tent Cards??
Well 2 of my friends did them so i thought I'd give it a try... wanna see?
I uploaded it just now to my gallery.

Kjpp 03-22-2010 01:51 PM

Wow! I just checked it out Vikki and I LOVE them! I will have to try that! I love trying out new ideas.

sempermom 03-22-2010 03:09 PM
