Yeah it is... bf was talking to the neighbours up at the cottage & thier two kids swim in Lake Erie. The daughter for some reason has a tendancy to swallow water and she got a throat infection. Then thier son, who goes diving throught the waves when they're high enough, ended up with an ear infection.

We all thought how interesting it was that during the week there's a sign up with a bacteria warning and miraculously on the weekends when the tourists and homeowners and renters come, the signs come down......

Janet, do you want us to pick you up on our way to H.L tomorrow? Melissa and I are planning to go in the morning. We both have family in the U.S. so we always keep our passports up to date.

OOhhh...another crazy...I mean friend!! Welcome Janet!!!

There's been so much going on that I don't know where to start!

Christyne- I've decided that since I have soooo much stuff, I'm only going to get the sets that I'm looking for. If you happen to come across them at the CF then let me know (by phone or text) and maybe you can set them aside for me.

Teresa- I haven't had a chance to talk to DH about the lights but I will tonight and get back to you.

Ina/Melissa- I am so jealous that you're going to Hobby Lobby tomorrow.

I was actually quite disappointed during my trip. We had decided that we would visit Joann's so I printed out a dozen 40% off coupons thinking that they had so much more than Michael's. I was looking for nesties and they said online that it was available in store. We get to the first location that we were able to find and nothing...they didn't even know what I was talking about. The same goes with the 2nd and 3rd location. Since we're not from the area it wasn't easy for us to find these places. We decided to call around and nobody had them. Grrr...so frustrating!!!

Diana, I would expect your hubby to do the lighting here. That is alot to ask. BUT....maybe...I could bring a lamp for him to fix when we have our little get together? I actually have 2 but will burden him with only one.

Hey girlies! Ina and I had our road trip today. Not many nesties left, neither of us got the sets that we wanted, but we did find some good deals nonetheless. Lots of good giggles, fun times and only a couple of insane drivers trying to kill us! We were saying that we should all try to get together for a US road trip weekend, for shopping and stamping. Ideally, if we could find a place to stay and stamp, and then shop the last day it would be perfect. Thoughts? Christmas is coming up, and staying over would up the limit allowed to be brought back across the border significantly. The Canadian dollar is nice and strong against the US dollar, too.

I would definately be interested in something like that. It might be a little difficult coordinating around everyone's schedules but we should definately try to work something out.

Hi All~
chrystine it was nice to see you today again, even if it was brief! What a great booth you guys had!

I got myself a set of nesties - the fancy labels. I'll peek at the site, but I think I'll be spending tonnes next week when I'm in Vancouver. Obviously if I don't PM you by tonight, don't wait for me! LOL

Packing, Cleaning, Keeping Warm is the story for tonight!

Labels 8 for sure. I couldn't find the Joannes site to see the specials, so I have to go by memory...so lets just say that for sure. If you have PayPal I can send you the $ that way. Thanks

Hi Melissa,

The sale is still going on, I'm assuming till the end of the weekend. Here's the link directly to the Spellbinder products:

http://www.joann.com/joann/search/se...uestid=1573858

I have a code that can be used for free shipping since the nesties are on sale and don't qualify for any additional discounts. I'll ship it to my cuz's and get her to ship to me. I'll give it to you when I see you and you can just give me the $ then if you prefer or you can send it to me via PayPal, up to you.

Yep...that's where I got mine. And because she lives in Jersey they have ridiculously low tax there...something like 3%, then with the free shipping and because I went there to pick it up it was soooo cheap!! Crazy great deal!!!

Here's another site, the nesties are even cheaper here and they have a wider selection (didn't see the Labels 8 at JoAnn's) AND they ship internationally but will have to see if it works out cheaper that way. Let's put our heads together and see where we can save more.

http://www.ritzcamera.com/webapp/wcs...=nestabilities

If shipping to Canada is a killer at this site, we can still have it shipped to my cousin's and she'll ship to us. I was thinking since the nesties are so slim she could probably put 2-3 pkgs in one legal size envie and ship it for a couple dollars as opposed to the store shipping it for $20+.

I can't get it right now but if I could I would ask my mom to pick it up for me. She lives by the boarder to Michigan and goes shopping in USA at least once a week. ..... hmmmm..... maybe I should ask her to get it and then she could bring it to me next time she comes to visit, then I wouldn't have to pay her until she is here. Is this how the drug crazed plot how to get their fix?

It is....this "hobby" is truly an addiction in disguise!!!

Ok...I think I figured it out Melissa (and anyone else who wants in). It all depends on how much we order. If we're not ordering a lot then JoAnn's is cheaper (but it doesn't look like they have the one you want). But if we order about $100 worth then the second place might work out better since they'll ship it directly to us for about $18 and duty/tax is only about $8. Dilemnas, dilemnas....decisions, decisions..... At times like these I wish I lived in the States!!!

Well if you were not going for a lot I would settle for the curved rectangles from Joannes and get the Lables 8 another time. The prices at Ritz are really good, too though...nd I just spent $45 at Cornish Heritage Farms... (darn what's new emails). LMK what you decide. Sheila also has lots of nesties and I expect her "make it your way" sale or whatever it's called is going to be on soon too. We could pool our resources and order from her to make the minimum spend if we didn't need the stuff right away.

If shipping to Canada is a killer at this site, we can still have it shipped to my cousin's and she'll ship to us. I was thinking since the nesties are so slim she could probably put 2-3 pkgs in one legal size envie and ship it for a couple dollars as opposed to the store shipping it for $20+.
I have an alternative idea.........I am going to Texas from Oct 28 until Nov. 3. They could be shipped to my son, and I could bring them back.....no postage at all! That is, if y'all can wait that long.

ooohhh...ok, it's settled then. Thanks Ina!!! Now the decision will just have to be where we order them from. I think there are 3 or 4 sets that I want , plus Melissa's one (possibly 2), Ina did you want any? Anyone else?? If we order over $100 from Ritz shipping to US addy is free and there is no tax, JoAnn has a free shipping code but we'll still have to pay tax and the prices are a little higher and there's less of a selection. Shipping takes about 8-15 business days so we'll have to order soon for it to arrive before you leave.

Ina, did you want me to send you the list of what I want or did you want to send me your son's address? Up to you....

Thanks again!!

Diana, I also want one set for sure, so we will be well above the $100 mark if we all order. I would probably be inclined to order from Ritz, but that is up to you. Let me know within the next day or so, which sets you want, and I will find out from Melissa too and then order them all. I have had lots of on-line orders go to my son.........never any problems (except that he wonders why I am spending so much money on stamping stuff when I could be spending it on his kids) LOL, just kidding!

Hi Ladies,

I was just thinking that since Ina is leaving for her trip on the 28th she most likely will not be able to join us that night. So I was just wondering if the 26th or the 27th will work out better....

And just a recap, who's in this month??? I totally missed this discussion... Tiffany, Janet are you ladies up to meeting us crazies???

What is the day we are doing this? I go on Tuesday 20th for a medical in Toronto then go to be a standby also in Toronto. I don't know which study I'll be in so I don't know what days I'm available.

I think the 26th is a week tomorrow and obviously the 27th is the Tuesday. Let's pick a day and take it from there....I'm good with either. Wednesdays aren't good for me but could work if it's later on in the night.

Janet- it would be awesome if you can make it.

Tiffany- if you can make it, you can drop off your cards for my swap to me.

Ina- does either of those days work for you?

I'm working on my nesties list....there are so many to chose from. So far I'm eyeing Labels 3, 6, and 9 and the Peony one..I also want the Goodbye Static Pad (similar to the Embossing Buddy from SU but half the price). Do any of you ladies have any of these and have any suggestions? I am so indecisive and need some help. My list originally had over $200 worth, I think that's about 15 dies but had to cut it down to 4....Ritz has so much more than any other site I've seen. Gonna take a break and get back to it in a bit...brain is overloaded with nesties...lol

It would for me, I think I have my final exam for my class that night so wouldn't be able to come on the 28.
