Liz, what Kathy said about Scentsy. They are huge here. I know 4 demonstrators and have been invited to other open houses with demos I don't know. I have three burners here at home and my DH has one at work. And I tend to hoard the refills too. I believe they are out of Idaho. Great stuff. I think I will buy my MIL's gift from Jamie. Maybe it will inspire her to come to my classes.

Kathy- I am jealous of some one to help with the cooking and cleaning. It's like pulling teeth to get my by boys to pick up their own toys. That's one way that AJ has rubbed off on Spencer.

Now hearing about all your stress over the Elf gifts is making me fear mine aren't good enough. I am at the swapper's anxiety stage right now myself. Done, but worried.

I just started a pot of Black Bean soup for dinner. DH will be home in two hours and it will be nice to have something that didn't start frozen for dinner tonight.

Crissy and Jen - Have fun creating tonight with your friends.

Rhonda- I'd love to see what you made. Did you post it?

Missi- Congrats on finishing up the term!

Okay, I think I am losing my mind. I have an open demo order that I just keep adding stuff to - it has the bundle and the new stuff on it, plus a couple of odds and ends that I need to order. Well, the last item on my order is for a 1 1/4" ribbon (no color description, etc. just 1 1/4" Grosgrain ribbon). order #113099. Doesn't this coming year's merchandise start with 113? I cannot for the life of me find this ribbon in any of the new stuff that we can order.

I have looked in the current catty but don't see any 1 1/4" ribbon with this order #. I think I was probably ordering something else and made a typo, but, again, can't remember what I was going to order.

Have any of you seen wide grosgrain in the new stuff? Am I really off my rocker?

I think it's the wide Vanilla RHR stripe in the mini.

Thanks, Amy! That's it! Why didn't I think to look in the mini? Now I remember - I was running out of this ribbon after my group on Monday and decided to order it again because I love it SO much! (Hoarding Disorder!!!)

I remember thinking it came up funny when I entered the number in OEX. Seems like it would have had another, more distinguishing word to it! LOL

Hello everyone!
Boy, we have all had a busy week!! I am finishing up my Christmas gifts class for tomorrow and then back to decorating my house. I love Christmas and I love decorating, but I am having a hard time getting into this year. Maybe it's because we don't have a Holiday event planned at our house this year. That's me, waiting until the last minute because I work much better against a deadline. However, I am happy to report that my elf gifts went on a little ride earlier in the week, I was glad to mark that off my list! I hope my elfette gifts are in line with others, I did have fun making some of them, so I hope that counts for something!
Glad to hear good news from everyone. Have a wonderful weekend and stay warm!!

Hi Ladies! Chatty day or at least more so than yesterday.
I spent the afternoon with my friend who was laid off on Wednesday and went to another friends boutique - she makes handmade bags/purses. I ordered one for myself and ordered canvas bags (like the go green grocery sacks - only bigger and sturdier) from her for my trip to Ukraine. We will use them for gift bags for our interpreter gifts and then it is a bag that is useful to them as well.
Hope everyone has a great evening!

Here's another question for those who order more than I do - I entered an order this morning for my hostess group and chose 2nd day shipping. It's 4:30 p.m. Utah time and my order still shows 'submitted.' Should I be concerned? Do I need to call DS? I REALLY need this order to get here early next week.

Kathy, click on your order and see if some stuff is backordered. One of my orders shows "submitted" even though it's formerly-known-as-partial.

And they keep picking till at least 6, I think.

Hope everyone has a great night! Waiting for friends to arrive and chatting online - on 2 threads here on SCS and on facebook. I really should be figuring out what to work on!! LOL!! Very fun chatting - talking to a high school friend who was behind me at Starbucks on BF morning. How she recognized me I'll never know!!!

Have fun tonight Jen!

Kathy - I have several partially shipped orders that still show submitted. I just check in each order to see what is really going on.

Amy - I hope your weekend is better than your day today {hugs} If I were closer I would so be there to lend a hand. Hope you are feeling totally better soon!

I finally got my elfette gifties all wrapped up and going postal tomorrow. I hope they fall within expectations. I did have fun with them.

Off to work on my Peace banner - need to finish this one and make two more.

Hi, Everyone!
Lo-o-o-ng and busy day today! I'm so-o-o-o-o tired! Good thing it's Friday!

Missi, congrats on finishing up the semester - great job! One more down - how many to go?

Wow, Kathy, is sounds like your DD really did some growing up while she was out on her own! You must be so proud of her!

I got my preorder today (Yay!) and I really like everything I ordered! So I hope to spend some time playing this weekend. The house is all decorated for Christmas, I'm pretty well caught up on my work, and I have a free day tomorrow. Well, I'll do some ironing and clean my kitchen, but then I'm playing with my new stuff!

Happy Weekend, Everyone!

Well, my order didn't ship today It says that it was submitted by 10:38 a.m. I know that I was charged the expedited fee. Guess I just have to wait until Monday to call DS. I've been gone all evening - wasn't home when DS closed. Oh well. Nothing I can do about it now.

Oh, my elf box came yesterday!!!!! I forgot to mention it. Do I be patient, do I peek? Ooooh! My kids are SO jealous! I'm so glad we're doing this.

I'm jealous of everyone with their pre-orders. Now that I've got my hostess club order in, I can put in my own order. Can't wait to see all the new stuff.

My Desktop is back from the dead. My DH wiped it for me when he got home and right now I am busy reinstalling everything. I got the internet working some how. I hope I don't have to do that again because I have no idea how I did it.

Kathy, once my "2-day" ended up being overnighted by SU, because they didn't get it out on time. Maybe that's what will happen.

Seems like the tracking system has a few glitches right now, too.

Just a quick Hi as I am suppose to be on deck right now (pool) Big Swim Meet today, 2 kids, 2 different pools in two different cities. My parents are doing the soccer thing today!! I'm exhausted just typing it.

Want to say to my Secret Elfette, I received your package last night, my DH took off any info to keep it a surprise, but there are only 8 gifts, don't know if there are seperate packages coming, but thought I'd let you know, whomever you are. I'm excited but going to wait until Dec. 12th to start opening.

Have a great day everyone!!

Hey all!

Just got back home from a quick shopping trip to Kohls to spend the Kohls cash I had received. I bought myself a present!! A snowflake pendent! I've always wanted one and that and a pair of silver earrings only cost me 45 cents! Sure, I spent a bunch of money there buying jeans and bras and stuff, but free money is fun!

Yep. I went to kohls to spend my free money and ended up spending over $80. But I had a 15% off coupon too so I got A LOT of stuff for my $80.

Paula, so glad you got your laptop working again. I would be so *sad* without mine!

Lisa and Jen, sounds like you got some great deals! Good for you!

I just got home after a hectic Saturday and found out that I was sent an email at 3 p.m. today from SU - my boxes were shipped yesterday. Why they had to wait until today to tell me????? AND they shipped my order in 3 boxes! There was nothing in this order that is overly large, (no BS or anything). I guess I shouldn't complain because at least it is coming.

We are "building" my oldest DD a bedroom out of a corner in our living room. Sectioning it off with bookshelves. At least it will be her own space for the time that she's here. Guess I should go help.

LOL Rhonda! I haven't mounted mine yet...been working on cleaning my room and finished my Peace Banner, then started on my Christmas card list. I think I will end up making another 20 cards.

My elf box arrived today!

Doesn't really seem like Christmas time here. AJ was out side playing when I got home this afternoon in shorts and barefoot. Now it isn't that warm (on 50) but still. Can't believe the kids are still playing outside all afternoon in December. We are suppose to get a storm in the next couple of days though so I am sure it will be a winter wonderland by Monday afternoon.

Yay to the shopping girls! Doesn't Kohl's have the best sales! How fun for you both!

Kathy and Ellie, good to hear from you - you have both been busy!

A funny thing happened today. First of all, I have to explain that I am a hopeless "homebody", and have been all of my life. I can go for days and days without ever leaving my house (or yard), and I'm completely happy. So this morning DH says, "Would you like to go with me to Home Depot while I pick up a few things?" Automatically, I say, "No, thanks, I'll stay home." Then later I was feeling guilty because I never go anywhere with him, poor guy, so I said, "OK, I'll go." So we get to Home Depot, and it's full of Christmas decorations, beautiful plants for the garden and just tons of neat stuff everywhere. I'm walking around going, "Wow, look at that! Oh, look, doorknobs! Hey, check out these light switches!" Really, I'm just like in awe - like I haven't been to Home Depot in about a hundred years! One clerk was just laughing because I couldn't stop talking about everything. And my DH was just shaking his head! Really, I've gotta get out more!

I've been playing with my blog - trying to design a new banner. It's a little wonky, but I'm still learning, and it's fun to try something new. Paula, I cased your Convention swap card (but I linked to the one in your gallery) Hope it's ok!

Rhonda, I love the preview card you posted - it's awesome! You are so creative!

Did anyone get the calendar kit from the holiday mini? Is it worth it? I'm still trying to decide about it.

Hugs to all!

Pamela,
I did get the calendar kit from the mini, but I haven't done anything with it yet. I was thinking of using it as a first week in January class or end of the year (between Christmas and New Years) class. But, of course, I haven't designed anything with it yet. I will be searching the galleries the next few days to see if I find anything interesting to do with it. That's my goal for next week. The really good thing about it is the price. 7.95 is very reasonable for the kit and is something my customers can and will pay for it. Now, if I can just come up with an idea to keep the class in the 10.00 range...I am always very successful when classes are under 15.00. Plus, they tend to be about 2 hours, which makes my total time spent about 3 hours at class time (for set up and clean up), manageable with a busy schedule. My class yesterday was supposed to be 3 hours, but with set up, class running over and clean up, I was there 5 hours and then I had to go to my real job to make rounds. I just have a hard time fitting all of that in and getting my household stuff done as well. Fun, but tiring!!

Good AM everyone..


Today's Hubby Bday I gave a gift cert. to his fav. store.. Gamestop.lol.. and it snowed the first snow and its stuck! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO lol... The boys were saying ohhh and ahhhh I haven't showed Gabi yet will in a bit she will probably look and say HUH??? lol she was too tiny last year to remember it so it should be interesting to see her reaction.

I have to get up and clean my craft area.. YET AGAIN.. lol.. because I was feeling like Edward Scissorhands last night cutting pasting and creating.. and in the end I was soo tired I just closed the door behind me and went to bed! lol. I am ssooo happy for my room because before my craft area was part of the dinning room area so it was out in the open the mess I would make! lol.. Now its toys that are making the mess! lol

hmm I could soooo go for some IHOP today.. oh wow to dream a little dream...we have to go to my MIL as they are having a little thing for my husband...

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful day hugs to all..

So, if I was going to put an ATG gun on my Christmas list, which size would I get : 1/4 or the other one that needs an adapter to do 1/4 inch.

Also, wondering about the BIA. Best prices?

Jen--you want the 714 ATG. It's red. I use the 987 1/4" 60 yd rolls of tape. Other people prefer the Gold, which is certified acid free.

hi all! thought it would be fun to be post #3000 in our thread!

how was the weekend all? I got lots of shopping done.. such a relief. about 1/2 finished now! spent the day yesterday touring a university in Chicago with my niece.. it was COLD! but a good tour. she is a junior and is trying to figure out her options. got our Christmas trees up.. all but the little third one. It didn't survive the year very well and we need a new one.. so only two trees this year.. and they turned out nicely.. if I say so myself!

I want a BIA too.. but I am holding out for SU to have one. (i know.. don't hold my breath!) I have so many things I want to make and great ideas and no time for any of them! so it will stay on my wishlist.. but I think the ATG will be a purchase in the new year. I have heard so many good things. I decided today.. no preorder for me until January. I am putting myself on a mini craft product moratorium. I bought a ton of stuff the day after t day. I have SO many projects started and unfinished. so nothing new until the new catalog!

Amy- feeling better? I know you are feeling good enough to enable! that's a good sign

Jen- how was your night with friends?

Ellie- hope the snows stays light and you don't get any ice like we did here!

Pam- I am a homebody too. I could stay home for an entire weekend and not even feel stir crazy!

Lisa (cat)- I will NOT be enabled by your preorder swap. I will NOT be enabled by your preorder swap!

Paula- glad your computer recovered. What was Spencer's reaction to DH coming home? just curious how the homecoming was after he missed him so much!

Kathy- hope your package arrives.

I also love Kohls. got LOTS of goodies there today.. I probably have some Kohls cash around that I forgot to take.. but I did have my 15% off coupon! woo hoo! saved me $26!

that's the excitement from here. not looking forward to work tomorrow. Boss is in the office.. he's a lovely man.. but I bust my butt when he is around!

have a good evening all!
Liz

ps. elfette gifts went for a ride yesterday! hope she enjoys. I enjoyed making!
