WOW, again when I "check in" I get tired just reading the chatter from today.

Sounds like everyone is super busy, but good (or at least trying to get most of our parts in working order...)

I just wanted to share that I signed up a new recruit today...WOOHOO for me. That DBWS money has been good for a little something. Hopefully it will turn into a good thing...I'll keep you posted!

I can't wait until tomorrow to open my 1st elfette gift. Could we share our gifts with each other every day?? I think this will be just as much fun as opening our own!

And, the recipe swap sounds like a great idea, after Christmas anyway. My SA habit has already gotten me into 3 swaps that are due in January! Oh well, I work best under pressure so why start now??

Everyone have a great night...I'll check in tomorrow to see what our elf gifts of the day have been!

So, have you all heard that they found a child's skull by the Anthony home. I wonder if it's her. So sad and so despicable these people are to not own up to the truth.

it's really unbelievable isn't it! It's nice to see some closure to this case.. but what a horrible thing. I just can't understand how a mother could do that..

anyway! enough sad stuff!

we put all the 2x3s in binders in baseball card holders. It was a great idea. My customers loved to look at the papers directly.. and so did I apparently!

Ok. have a great evening all!

Evening Ladies. *Waves hello

Angie - congrats on the recruit.
Liz - glad your package came today.
Crissy, I hope yours is there tomorrow!
Amy - Liz is technically right, it is tomorrow somewhere...

My 5th level upline does a paper share - she does 6x6 of all the regular catalog DSP (Prints excluded). I think it was $30 to buy the brick from her. I actually had to tap into a couple pieces for a swap.

I did a paper share a couple catalogs ago. After I figured how much it cost me, incl shipping, I realized I would have had to sell 15 packs of DSP to make my money back. I didn't sell that many. I don't usually sell that many. 'Cept to me!

I am thinking I will pass on her offer next catalog for the same reason. I sell to myself more than anyone to begin with and it didn't pay to have the actual paper on hand. I will just add it to my stash.

I posted to my blog...I got the box opened and took a photo. Now off to bed and dreams of sugarplums dancing in my head.

Chatty today! And I missed it. Still no luck getting our computer fixed. We are going to have to find a Vista expert somewhere. It was loading an update and when it gets to stage 3, it just keeps rebooting over and over and over again.

I got some family presents made for three of my four siblings. The other one is going to be something different because they are the different ones in my family (not in a bad way, just different). I have the canvasses painted for the six name things I'm making for my nieces and nephews. Thank goodness several of them share rooms or it would have been much harder.

I am totally in for an ice cream storm and a recipe swap. I think I have forgotten how to cook though. Everything comes from a box or the freezer these days. Yesterday, I stood in front of my pantry and fridge for an hour trying to be inspired what to make and ended up with canned chilli, chips and cheese. At least the boys liked it.

I too bought lots of DSP this time around. I hope something carries over to the new catalog. I do have a lot and some of it isn't even open yet. It's not a big seller for me either.

Can't wait to open my box tomorrow. I haven't even cracked the seal on it. My neighbor couldn't believe it is just sitting nicely in the corner of my kitchen waiting for tomorrow. Woo Hoo! Maybe I should move it under my tree. I bet the boys will have fun with this too.

I'm off to bed. Maybe I can get up extra early and get some stuff done before the boys get up. It's a good thought anyway.

What Lisa said!

I bought 2 packs of Ski Slope, 3 Bella Rose, 1 Haiku, 1 Maine Blueberry and 1 Holiday Treasures. The Holiday Treasures is just for me/scrapbooking last year's Christmas and 1 pack of Ski Slope is mostly for me for this year's Christmas.....I've decimated the others....they have a lot of scraps left, but I really used them.

I really think 4 packs is a good number to start.

I have taken my arrival picture of my gifts and then laid them out (but there are only eight) and taken a picture and then I will take a picture each day!! I plan on doing a scrapbook layout. I never scrapbook my things. I think this will be a great idea. Now I can post what I get but I can't guarantee pictures since my picture poster is in Victoria right now until Monday.

Excited to open my first gift tomorrow!!

My DS did such a great job at the Christmas Concert!! My DD took pictures but I didn't think to tell her to video because I wasn't expecting my DS to act and sing so great!! It was so great to see him shine since he really didn't want to go because going meant he missed soccer and soccer is super, super important to him.

Wow - almost 2 pages today! I'm missing everything today. But yippee --- it's Friday tomorrow. I can't wait to see what my elfie sent me!

I have a group of 9-12 year old girls coming to do a stamping project. Still haven't decided what to do. Any ideas???? Supposed to be making a card to take to a nursing home.

I got to go to a fancy schmancy dinner tonight with DH. Some of the best food I have ever eaten - and it was a buffet! The hospital does this every year for upper management. There are some perks in life!

Yiou were all so chatty today! All those elf packages sound like fun. I went to a week of Boy Scout Leader training at the national level and my assistant sent along a care package, something to open each day. It was fun to open one each night. Goofy stuff, a bug catcher, sunscreen, ear plugs (thank goodness roommate snored!) and Chocolate! I'm sure yours are way better than that. None of you should be having the am I good enough butterfiles.

I am going to MN regionals. Not sure what day. Mary - DramaQueen and I talked about it. At least it should be good driving weather. Just have to double check that she is still talking to me. I was on hiatus for so long.

Well tonight was the last of my club events until Jan 13. Looking forward to doing some renovations to the area I use for stamp group.
Hey did any of you order the level 2 hostess set - itty Bitty Buds? Mine is red rubber, not purple like the level 3.

From working with donations to the nursing homes in my area I know the residents appreciate anything given. Just keep it easy and have fun (for you!). I made lap robes one year. This last Christmas they were looking for ways to mark glasses. They asked for drink sticks. I made the sliders for pencils but made them to fit straws. Even left room to put names on. I should make up more of those and drop them off. They don't even have to be SU paper, just sturdy. I could laminate them too . . .

At least you got to eat for your piano playing.

I had to do this activity a couple years ago. I made "color me" cards. Stamped some images they could color (with nice colored pencils), then let them choose a colored card base to mount them on.

Then later I went through and took out the worst ones before we took them to the nursing home. LOL

Ok, something really, really, really weird happened to me this morning!

I had a dream last night that I went to a garage sale with my mom, dh, dd and someone else (can't really remember who, but it may have been Amy since she is the enabling queen!). The garage sale was inside someones house and it was set up with shelves and they had new stuff too, almost like a store. Anyway, I'm walking down this one "aisle" and I see ATG guns for $29 and refills for $2 so I told dh that I had to get one! I don't remember anything else from the dream and I woke up a bit later.

So I get up and make my coffee and sit down to catch up on last nights post. I leave my computer on most of the time and I had left Internet Explorer up with several tabs open of different websites I was browsing last night. Anyway, I glance at one of the tabs and it says Tape Dispenser Guns, sure enough it is the page that I had bookmarked for the ATG gun. But I swear I didn't open it yesterday! I haven't been to that site in a while! How weird is that? Amy, have your enabling powers gone so far as placing subliminal messages in our mind and getting onto our computers and going to the websites so we will purchase?

I'm sure there is a good explanation, but it is just really weird. (insert Twilight Zone music here)

Kathy - I agree with what Kim said. Make the project simple and fun. The people at the nursing home will love anything you bring them, I'm sure!

Paula - I'm sorry about your computer troubles! I'm with you on the cooking thing! This time of year I am always looking for quick fixes and or ordering pizza! No wonder I need to lose weight!

Okay, I didn't wait for an official 'it's time to open the elf gifts!' and I just opened mine. Beautiful!!!!!

I have a picture on my blog.

After a night of teenage turmoil, and MOM is being so unreasonable, it is so nice to be reminded that there is someone out there who loves me!

Beautiful ornament Kathy! (and Kathy's elf!) I hope my box arrives today! I want to open presents too!

I have been getting up early and going to bed late all week and I really want to take a nap, but there is so much to do! I have to get a work project done and then maybe I will take a short nap...

For those who signed up for the preview swap, I just PMd you with the final count, if you didn't get a PM and signed up, let me know ASAP because that means I messed up!!!

I love my gift too. But I can't post a picture because I can't get the card reader on my laptop to work. Ugh! It's a great little bitty book decorated with Dashing Paper (my all time favorite Christmas paper!) and filled with Gift Tags. I did take a picture so once I get my desk top working, I will post a picture.

I think I am going to go buy a plasma TV this morning. If Costco still has it in stock that is. It's a great deal. But it won't fit in our current TV armoire so we are going to have to get a new entertainment stand of some sort too. I can tell this "great deal" might end up costing us a fair amount.

I love the ornament Kathy (and Kathy's elf) so cute! I tried to leave a comment but nothing is working right this morning.

Morning all! Hope everyone has a great day!

A nap sounds good Crissy! I hope you get to indulge in one....you deserve it after a busy week!

Good luck getting the TV Paula!

Rhonda, cute gift! I'm so excited to see what's coming for everyone during the next 12 days!

I think I finally am wrapping my brain around this afternoon's project. I like your idea, Amy, about the color-in cards. Easy enough, but still something that will take a few minutes to do.

Time to clean the house! Good thing people come over once in awhile - it really forces me to get in the corners.
