Oh Carrie! That is funny but DS is being a bad bad boy. Wait until he starts sticking things in his ears, nose, etc. UGH! Kids! You really will survive this. Sometimes it just doesn't seem like it. It is a lesson he needs to learn.

Boy, I remember those days. One daughter stuck a wheel off a hot wheel in her nose & the other stuffed a piece of sponge (stuffing from a pillow) up her nose. The latter wasn't found until the neighbor kids wouldn't play with her. She smelled. I smelled her mouth & nothing.........held my hand over her mouth & smelled her nose. OH MY GOSH! Couldn't get sponge out.....called ear/nose/throat specialist & they wrapped her like a mummy & removed it. It had grown fast in there. YIKES! Silly kids.

Bonnie........ I know that most are covered under copyrights. Even your child's letters or pictures. Once it's put to paper, they belong to the author.
If it's important to you, you need to contact a copyright lawyer. Did she mean to do something wrong? Or is she just a fan?

Hugs to All (and yes I AM keeping my eye on Lesley Pooter & Connie S.

Wow! Look what happens when I am fast asleep!! I seriously feel violated for you. Did she get them off our Pen Pal thread? Ugh.

So, someone from the Fan Club is also on SCS and she saw them on the Fan Club site and found you to email you? Does that mean your SCS name, etc is on the Fan Club site now?

This just freaks me out. And she does sound a little obsessive. Scary.

Sorry about this and the vomit! What a day you had!!

hello,

No happy mail today, but my niece who is into stamping sent me a Halloween card.

Bonnie, I am so sorry someone copied your pictures. I don't blame you for being upset. You never know who is lurking out there. So we need to be careful what kind of personal information we put on the threads . Sorry about the vomit too.

Stamping Angel sorry your day wasn't smooth either. But we have all been there if you have kids.

If it makes you feel any better I spilled dog urine all over my laundry room. Now I know what you're thinking "what????". My dog is diabetic and I have to collect and test a sample of his urine every morning. This is the first time in 10 months I accidently knocked it over. We won't even discuss how I collect it.

Everyone have a good evening. Tomorrow is another day

Dolores

With Bonnie and the vomit and Dolores and the pee (sounds like a rock group name, doesn't it?), I hereby wish everyone a non-body-fliud-filled day!!!

And on Carrie's behalf, a non-child-sticking-things-where-they-don't-belong day too!!!

We are about off to get costumes together and eat at a friends before hitting the streets tonight! (Gee, that sounds so exotic!!) Happy Halloween for those that celebrate it!

Hello Everyone,

Hope this finds you all doing good. I've been busy trying to get caught but on my cards. Just sent off 25 Mon, so think I'm done for this month, that's if I haven't forgotten anyone. LOL I tell everyone the doctor did great on my knees, but not to good on the brain!!!!!! I think I left some of it back in the hospital.


I would like to ask you all if you think it is time to stop taking any new names. We are up to abt. 124 names now. I really hate to stop taking names, but I think the larger it becomes the more impersonal it will become and I really want to become more aquitained with everyone we have on the list now.This is the best group of ladies and I know if I read these post I would want to join it too but we're really getting awful big. Please let me know how you all feel about it.

Lana

I agree the list is getting pretty big. The spreadsheet is already three pages long. I love this group and also want to get to know you all better. I think that will get harder as the group gets bigger. Just my thoughts.

I have to agree with Dolores and Lana. Lana I think whatever you decide is fine after all we all wouldn't be here if it wasn't for you so if you want to cut the list off now that's fine with me

I think Lana is right. Besides she's the "mother" of the list. Gave birth just a few months ago and look how many "kids" she has now. ROFL Go for it Lana.
We just added 2 more so if you want to post a "no more" post.......it's okay by me.
I'm like you........I hate to tell anyone no but it has to stop somewhere.

And Bonnie, it's spelled plagiarism but that may be just for books or written articles. Not sure. I only dealt with copyrights at Purdue.

Hope everyone is have a wonderful day. Dolores.........happy thoughts for Zippy. Daisy is too. He & your Mom have been through a lot.

Hi Carol, yes I am an RN. I don't know about Aussie's being Poota's. I am Scottish so have no idea what a Poota is lol. Sounds interesting.

I think cut off is fine too. But can we occasionally request an "check-in" for people to indicate if they are still wanting to continue, seems like some groups are overly large but people don't particapate. And I am sure we all know that there is another pen pal group in SCS site and maybe any one real interested in pen pal type of group can join in there.

It's actually a joke. Lesley (from Australia) and I got into a discussion about what we call computers. I call them puters & she calls them Pootas. Ok, either that or I thought maybe poota was a body part. ROFL

How are things down under? We have a sunny crisp day today. Hoping the grass dries by noon so I can mow. Hopefully it will be the last. We mow 3.6 acres. LOL

And ladies, don't forget that Poota has a birthday on the 14th & it will take awhile to get there.

just wanted to say hello.

What a sequence of mishaps.

I hope you don't mind me gigging a bit

I don't know his age but he sounds like a

lot of fun. He is the type of child who will

go far in his life.

Just hug him and know he will be grown and

you have all these memories to look back on.

Good morning, Ladies! hope all is well in your part of the world today.... here in my little corner it is well.... nice cool crisp Autumn day.... for the ones who celebrate it... "Happy Halloween"..... Saw a new product this morning and wanted to share it here... seems like when I put anything on the whole SCS board it either gets lost or "merged" with someone elses,,, so thought I would just post it here among you, my friends... Its from Tim Holtz and it is called "Grungeboard". You can check it out on his website.. just do a search for Tim Holtz. It is a flexible chipboard and it comes in sheets and you just pop out the images or you can get the plain sheets to die cut your own. You can ink, distress and etc it... There is no mention of where you can buy the stuff or how much it costs, but I just thought it looked so neat! I guess it will be available soon somewhere... anyway just wanted to share.
About cutting off the sign ups for this pen pal group, as you all know it got too large for me to keep up with so I am only sending out birthday cards... but I sure love to read and participate in the chat... not to be ugly.. but there are names on the list that I never hear anyone mention getting a card from... I don't think its fair to be on the list and receive cards and never send any... that is why I cut mine down to just birthday cards.... if I can't send cards I don't expect to receive any. Some of the ladies have been dolls and continued to send me cards anyway and I SO appreciate that! Thank you SO much...
Whatever you decide to do, Lana, is fine with me...
May God bless
Nyoka

I was thinking about what Nyoka said about never hearing from some anymore. Wonder if there's a way (Lana or Dolores) to contact them & ask if they are even interested anymore.
OR another thought (yes, I'm thinking again......that's my scary thing for Halloween) maybe we could post on here that you let someone (maybe post here) know that YOU are still an active member. You could even PM me. I could keep track of them. I know that Lana & Dolores have their hands full. Then I could pass it on to Dolores. Maybe it would cut it down some.

What do YOU think? Yes, Lesley, you & Connie have to think too. Just think, if you were in Indiana you could ALL go to the SCS Indiana Gathering Saturday & do NOTHING but make cards ALL DAY LOOOOOOOOOOONG. Sounds great to me.

Beautiful Day today. Warm and sunny.
Will be a great night for all the kiddies out celebrating halloween.
My husband had a severe back/side pain for the
last two days. I finally convince him to see the doctor.
they think it is a kidney stone. So we have a appointment
for a catscan at 11:30 this morning.
hope all goes well.

Since this pen pal list started. I must of sent out cards to over 45 people and only heard back from some people. I dont mind that either. I love the ones I have now..all of them. Like I said, I have sent cards out and NEVER heard from them on here or received a card. Not even a thank you. It's like they want that 1st card from you and thats it...anyways, I to think to make a cut off. Has anyone heard from Julie..Today is her b-day but I havent even seen her on here for awhile now. Although she did thank me for b-day card. I learned another lesson from my other mess. Never post pics. They had deleted them for me on another forum here, whew! Now back to coloring my hair.

Happy Birthday Julie D

Happy Halloween

Bonnie

Happy Halloween! I received a cute Halloween card from Marilu W. It is just the cutest ever. I just loved how you made the faces sparkle with their coordinating colors. What good timing! Thanks Marilu.

I agree with everyone about this list having a cut off--I also agree about trying to contact people to see if they still want to be a part of this--I know a couple of people who have expressed to me that they might want out--but aren't sure how to go about it. For 1 reason they say it is getting very expensive to mail all these cards and it is becoming a chore and not fun to them any more. So I would say if anyone wants out just tell us--you can still be part of this group through the chats.
I for one am in for the long haul I am enjoying it!!! It is fun getting to know everyone!!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN

I agree with putting a freeze on the list - it has gotten so big! I started out slow and initially mailed cards to 10 people - heard back from half of them and have continued to swap with these women. Occasionally I hear from a new person and am very happy to add them to my list. I doubt if anyone wants to mail cards to 125 people - yikes - that is lots of time and postage. It would be great if someone started a second thread and generated a brand new list.

It would be nice to know who still wants to be on and who would like removed. I don't think there would be any hard feelings if someone posted on this thread to please remove their name from the list. Everyone's circumstances change and while they may have had time in the beginning to particpate they may not have the time anymore. There are a lot that I started mailing to that I don't hear from anymore, some its been 2 months so I would say I'm not going to hear from them lol. I love the list and plan on continuing

When I first started I mailed about 46 cards in a one week
period. I also heard from just 10 or 12 people.
At first I was disappointed by the return mail and
now I am happy with the ones who responded.
I feel a close connection them.so those who have
never answered anyone should be cut.

Thats my opinion for whats its worth.
but don't go broke sending cards Do it
at your own pace, and what you can afford to do.

Exactly. Just ask to be deleted. What I figured would happen is that some people would swap with certain ones & then not respond to any more. Which is fine. Like Bonnie, I sent out about 35 and heard back from about half. I figured that the others just wanted to swap with the ones they'd already started with. Again, that's fine. I just don't send to them anymore.

I DO send a birthday card to anyone that has a birthday. That does NOT mean that you HAVE to swap with me. Just post here, a thank you. It's no big deal. I just want to wish you a happy day.

ALso, I send a card out to welcome any new ones to the list, when Dolores gives me their names. Watch out Andrea M & Kari B.........they are on their way.
I do wish that if you don't want to be here, you'd Post it here or contact Lana & say so. Please don't think that you are hurting anyone's feelings. It's ok. Just swap with the ones you are already swapping with.

That's why when the one girl only wanted ONE pen pal........told her to contact someone from the list. It's that easy. As Lana once put it............there are NO rules & don't make it hard on yourself. We all get busy & sometimes can't get them out in a timely manner..............no bigeeeeeee. Just enjoy the "family" and the cards.

Have a great day! Just set up a stamp day for next Weds. so any of you who want to come, come on over. Now, I will need to know how many because I'm making sloppy joe's and lemon bars.

I just returned from vacation this week, and of course, I now have the flu! It was so nice to get some beautiful Cards from this wonderful group of pen pal ladies! Thanks to Pam, Carol, Marcine, and I believe there was one more I am missing, I will have to go look! But thanks to all of you!

It was nice to get some happy mail to look at while I was lying in bed miserable! It seems I always get a card in the mail when I need cheering up the most! What a great group!!!!!!!!!

I sent out October Birthday cards! But need to get working on Novembers! and of course all of my return cards! And a few from the list, thats my goal for this week... hahaha... too bad the weeks almost over!!!

Aww Rachel... I am so sorry you are ill.... it can be a pain to be in bed all day sick... hope you start to feel better soon...
Well.. I will be the first to tell the group that I DO wish to remain on the list but I can only send out Birthday cards... in the last few days I have sent out some extra cards to the sweet ladies who have kept me on their list to send cards to. I really appreciate getting their beautiful cards.....thanks so much.
May God bless
