Thank you Connie S for the kind words. Its been busy this week my husband works for a print shop in town; and they been trying to get 23,000. Especially for you long sleeve T shirts printed for the breast cancer run this week. The print covers both sleeves plus front and back with team name.So when this big order comes in they work long hours.He does all the loading and delivery. Put in 11.5 hours on wednesday;He gets very tired and his back hurts
from all the lifting. Next week they print 90,000 COORS BEER T shirts. For 68 he does a good job. So when they are busy all he gets done is eat and sleep.

Have a order coming from stampin up today anxious to
get it. Started on christmas cards yesterday. It took quite
awhile before I was satisfied with the design. My husband
offered to help me, becouse sometimes I am don't always
get my measurment correct.
I received a gorgeous card from Siobhan yesterday boy!! you gals are so talented. And you have such busy lives.
with family and jobs too. And you all seen so happy.
That is wonderful.
A big shout out to my penpal daughter connie s.
Have a good weekend.

Just an update on my dad:

He is having surgery today at 4pm on his pancreas. He has an irregular heart beat, which is a concern for the doctors but they want to get in there as soon as possible. The blockage was found to be a tumor and it's on the outside and top of his pancreas. That's the good news...that and it looks relatively small on the MRI. But they won't know for sure about it until today's surgery. If it had been throughout the pancreas, they'd have to removed the whole thing. They're planning on doing a procedure called the Whipple procedure-where they remove part of the pancreas. He will have to take insulin pills afterwards since insulin is produced there and he'll have to adjust his diet, too. The surgery could be as long as 7 hours, my mom said. I'm hoping that the tumor will turn out to be small, like the doctors hope. He'll be in the hospital for at least a week and then be in Washington for at least 4 weeks. We already had tickets to go up for a week from Nov 7-14th so we'll be able to see him. I'm really concerned about his heart rate and hoping he makes it through surgery all right. If you could, please say a prayer for us today. We can use all the good thoughts we can get.

Thanks so much.
Becca

URRGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGH! OMG! My post office b-iatch lady drives me flippin' crazy. I forgot I had to mail my kids penpal packages out and I also had a couple of cards to mail. What do I do? Well, I go to the post office and this same lady feels for every single bump on the cards I have. She puts a stamp of both of them for .58 cents..I told her, you are the only one that feels like that, she says thats their policy..It's FLAT, there are no bumps in there and I told her that I get a lot of letters back that have more than what I put on the card..so Carrie please if you read this, there is extra postage on your card..we had a bit of an argument there and holding the line up. I am very sensitive right now, I'm surprise I didnt cry. Let's see if I'm going to have a better rest of the day.

Hello from O-hio,

Received 4 cards in the mail today.

Thanks, Jenny M. I love the Halloween card, I too have $1.00 stamps from Micheal's but not those. May have to back to M's

Diane, I love that Halloween ribbon. Very cute card. Thanks for the tip on traveling with students. My daughter will be eligble to go on a school trip to France next year. I am so going to chaperone.

Marcine, Love the flowers and the way you used the ribbon on your card. Very Pretty.

Becki B. Thanks for the adorable summer card. I love the little cup and straw.

Everyone have a wonderful Weekend.

Check your email. I was having trouble with computer (YES it was the machine) and finally got a message sent to you about the spread sheet.

Need to thank Nicky H. for the happy mail. Thanks Nicky! I know what you mean about working. I worked all the time the girls were growing up. Actually, since I was 15, until I retired 2 1/2 years ago. It can be rough. Especially when you're not used to it.

FINALLY got rid of my headache. Thank God for Mucinex. LOL

Becci we will keep your Dad in our prayers. How are you doing?

Bonnie, put one stamp on and drop in the outside mailbox. It will go through.

You're right Khara...........great mail and so many ideas.

Have a wonderful weekend. Sorry about the double post. Said it didn't go through, so I shut down my computer & heck..........there they are. UGH! I hate dial up but won't give in and get the expensive stuff. LOL

Becca, thinking of your dad...keep us posted. It's so great that you already have a trip planned...you just want to be close at a time like this.

I had an adorable halloween card from Marilu today...thank you so much! The sparkly pumpkins are really cute. It is so fun to have a regular influx of cards in with the bills/catalogues/etc.!

It finally feels like fall here (SE Michigan)...50 degrees as compared to 90 degrees a week ago! I'm enjoying the change.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Becca - a Whipple can be a huge procedure (DH is a retired general surgeon) - so don't be alarmed if it is a long operation - I'll be sending up big time prayers for your dad - and keeping your entire family in my thoughts

Becca - recieved your card today!!! Be thinking of you!

Love all this mail...

I am sending out replies tomorrow too - woo hoo!!! love sending mail out too.

Bonnie, I know the feeling, I had a postman give me the run down how my cards with ribbon was going to wreck their whole system! I decided to go to a little country post office (more miles but hey) after that and I haven't had a problem.

Went to a su camp tonight. The two gals giving it are
just great doing what they love. Tonight seemed more
difficult the tecniques were more detailed. Next month two more tecnique plus christmas cards., enjoyed it very
much. Today I spent this afternoon mounting my su stamp order I received to day. love all the products I
ordered. Can't wait for the spring preview mini.
Carrie L sent me a warm and cheery card it was very nice to meet her.
Lisa M sent a unique embossed card with a design I had never seen before. It would be something to try to do.
Laura O'shea sent a very smiley happy witch card. This has been so much fun meeting new friends and hearing about their families,jobs.pets.
Thanks connie s for all your good wishes.
bye and good night.

My MIL has issues like this with sending my stuff over here! The guys is like extra cautious with any customs form. It irritates her and we joke about it everytime she sends something...which is at least once a week! I would not survive here without her!

So, Bonnie, go to Wal Mart and buy a postage scale...weigh your heavier cards, look online to calculate postage and then you can avoid your "buddy"!! I go as far as to use Click and Ship for packages as well. Just keeps me out of line...

Have a great day everyone!!

Three more beautiful cards in the mail yesterday! Thanks to Marilu, Ariana, and Nicky! I am trying to catch up on yard work today if it doesn't rain. But will work on cards tomorrow. So ladies if you have sent me a card recently, I'll be sending more out soon.

Hugs to you Becca! You & your family will be in my prayers.

Cool Two Bonnies

Bonnie
Yes, there are/will be two Bonnieís on the list. So it might be a good idea if you use your last initial. Iím waiting for a 2nd Siobhan.  Just kidding. Canít imagine there will be another one. There are a few that we have duplicates on. Linda, Karen, Michelle, Rachel, Tammy, Tara, etc. Others are similar but spelled differently. Yes, we have a BIG list now..........113 names.


ANY new ones should PM Dolores dbrpuppets She will make sure you get on. Just give her your name, address, birthday, SCS name. Pretty easy.

Bonnie--just stamp it and drop it in the box that's what I do--if I have to go to the PO they always charge 58 cents. So now if I need stamps I just go buy the stamps stamp my letters myself and drop them in the box.

Happy Stamping

That was funny!

True story: there was a Siobhan who used to work with me! Now what are the chances of that??!! Maybe higher in SF, Chicago, or NY with the Irish population...but this was in Texas!!

Good morning everyone,

I hit pay dirt today. My LSS had a garage sale where members sold their personal scrapbooking and stamping supplies. I found the Stella Stamping set for $7.00. Also got some great deals on clear stamps and a Fiskar border punch. The day is starting off great.

Dolores

PS Wallmount I pm you back

I'm lucky, I only had that problem happen to me once. We have postage machine at work with a scale and it helps a lot. Even if I have a bump or 2, it still weighs in at $.41

BTW, there's also 2 Connie's too.

I received 3 cards yesterday in the mail. YooHoo! I was beginning to think I
wasn't on anyone's list. Thank you Carol M for the nice golf card, thanks to Deb E. for the cutest mummy card. I just love the big circles for the eyes and how you used the paper to make a mummy card. Thank you Diane W for the nice flower card, I loved how you used the ribbon through the rick rack.

Hi ladies! What a great card week for me! I am really enjoying this pen pal list- what a wonderful idea!
Carol M thanks for the great golf card- and thanks for the instructions! Retirement sounds like it agrees with you- you are very talented! It was nice hearing aobut your family.

Marilu-your glittery pumpkins brought a big smile to my face! It seems we have a lot of shared interests! I,too, love sports, reading,and visiting new places!

Sarah K- love the web and spider! And don't worry about being behind on your scrapbooks- I am too! It just insures that we'll ALWAYS have something to scrap!

Siobhan- your color combo is so striking! I love the Asian theme! I admire folks who can move from home- Japan-wow! What an adventure for you and your family! My cousin was stationed there for years and loved it- but I never got a chance to visit! I'm a nurse,too! With 3 kids- I am glad you can find the time to craft! I have 0 kids and sometimes don't have enough time to do what I want- you must be very organized! another thing I admire!

Well, I mailed some more cards today- I am determined to get thru the whole list- bit by bit!
Thanks again everyone!!
Diane W

Siobhan.......WOW is that hard to believe. Where in Texas? We rented a water front condo, last January, in Rockport TX. Even though it was the wettest & coldest January they'd had for awhile we still enjoyed it. Have friends in Dallas, New Braunfels & Malakoff.

Bonnie H..............WOW, a flip flop card! I was sooooooooooooooooooooo shocked to get that one. ROFLM you know what off. Loved your colors. That is toooooo cute. Now I want to check out the Dollar tree. Of course, they closed ours so I have to drive 28 miles for ANYTHING. UGH! Oh, I said I love Flip flops...........I did NOT say I wear them on my feet. I have 3 pair of earrings & two necklaces, plus a T-shirt (friend just got it for me) and a chip/dip bowl that are all flip flops. OH, alsmot forgot, a big pair in my flower bed. they are supposed to go on the wall...........but hey, they look cuter in my big circle flower bed (42 feet across). Bought those in Bethany Beach DE.

Pam C............WOW, what a lovely lovely card. What did you color with? Is that watercolors? LOVE it. That brown ribbon almost looks like copper when the light hits it just right. You're right..........you WILL love this list and I'm happy to be your "first". Do you know I've never used my riveting set? Love the little boy pulling the pumpkins too. What beautiful work & such talent. Keep up the GREAT work.

Later
