Hey Deb

donnahilse 10-08-2013 01:17 PM

I made a second card as well, but don't want to make two cards of everyone's, I just couldn't make up my mine which card to do, so I did 2. Donna

landerson1129 10-08-2013 06:49 PM

Thanks, Laura and Donna. I'm putting two box numbers in your welcome kit.

I have everything just about ready to go. Now if I can just survive the week at work.............. :roll:

abendis 10-09-2013 05:01 PM

The final number for what you need to cut for is 25. There will be some extra cards that Lisa, me and Donna had done. Let me know if you have any questions. The time is coming near.

Just a heads up, we may have to change location around lunch time.

abendis 10-09-2013 05:05 PM

Just a reminder that you can bring snacks for your table but we do not need it for the entire bunch. We want to keep it simple.


abendis 10-09-2013 05:07 PM

2 things to remember:
non-perishable food items
cards or card fronts for donation to our new cancer center in Bel Air

abendis 10-09-2013 05:13 PM

just so you know, Laura (joppastamper) is number 25, she made an extra card.
Thanks Laura

KAREN7661 10-09-2013 06:03 PM

Food Choice
Chicken Salad & Diet please.


landerson1129 10-09-2013 06:32 PM

Hey Karen - look about five posts up. Lunch is now baked ziti and/or pizza, salad, bread, etc. delivered by Pat's Pizzeria. Much yummier than a sandwich, we think!

mkfrances 10-10-2013 10:03 AM

Yeah! Thanks for including me - I look forward to seeing everyone in a few days!

Looking forward to seeing you too Marcia! I haven't seen you in ages!

susane4 10-10-2013 11:56 PM

I thought being retired would mean things would be less hectic. Hah! I have my card all planned out. All I have to do is make it and cut out all the pieces. I goofed and created one with lots of pieces but it's really easy to do(for you, that is). I just need another day (lol)! It will get done around midnight tomorrow night. Looking forward to seeing you Kathi and sharing dog stories. Can't wait to see everyone else too. I am in cardmaking withdrawal! Thanks Andrea and Lisa - again and again. You two are terrific!

Kathi127 10-11-2013 05:50 AM

I'm so looking forward to seeing you Sue and sharing dog stories! Can't believe I will finally get to meet you! I know what you mean about being retired, I don't know how I ever got anything done when I worked!

Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow!

Mary McWilliams 10-11-2013 03:59 PM

Hi andrea and lisa, I hope you see this post before tomorrow.

I would like envelopes. 250 if possible


abendis 10-11-2013 05:38 PM

Hey Mary
I passed the message on to Lisa.


landerson1129 10-11-2013 05:57 PM

Hi Mary - I'll have them for you. See you in the morning.

abendis 10-12-2013 02:57 PM

What a wonderful time today. Great cards, great company and wonderful food. It was a very relaxing day even with the move.


landerson1129 10-12-2013 03:47 PM

Hi all -

What a fun day! It really went fast. Great company, great cards, and great food. What more can a girl ask for?? Can't wait to see you all again at our next swap.

Until then, take care -

Kathi127 10-12-2013 05:09 PM

Thank you so much Andrea and Lisa for a wonderful day! I had a great time! The cards were awesome and the food was so yummy! You can be sure I will be back for your next swap!

babsmcleod 10-13-2013 07:09 AM

Fantastic day!
Andrea and Lisa and Ciera,
Thank you both for organizing the shoe box event. I had a fantastic time! Thank you for all your help with the cards.
Shannon said to tell you, 'Thank you for sharing my Mummy with me. We had a fun day. Can't wait to open my birthday gifts on Sunday!'
Take care and please plan another shoe boxfor the spring. :-D

susane4 10-13-2013 06:16 PM

Thanks Lisa and Andrea for organizing another fantastic day. Thanks to Ciera for you help tool And to think I almost cancelled! So nice to have a huge head start on my Christmas cards. Can't wait for the next one.

donnahilse 10-14-2013 06:23 AM

Lisa and Andrea, Thank you for such a lovely swap, the cards were awesome and friends and food was delicious. Thank you for all your hard work. Can you send me your email address please. Thanks Donna

Mary McWilliams 10-14-2013 07:03 AM

Lisa and andrea, thank you so much for hosting the swap. I am sorry that I left a little early wasn't feeling well. I am confused on what happen lynn told me that my box was short 3 cards. When I left there were a total of 25 cards plus the sample in my box. Just wanted you to know that my box was filled with the necessary items (I did not come short with cards). Either someone did an extra card or messed up and used a second card. Luckily the 4 of us work together so they were able to give up their cards that they had done. I cut extra cards and brought them to work with me so they would get their cards back. it seems that they were cards that were there and was not stampin up product (ink and paper). Your post stated that these were the rules. You both put so much hard work into organizing this event and I just wish that everyone would abide by the rules.

heart 10-14-2013 08:04 AM

What a wonderful Saturday! Thanks so much to everyone for putting so much effort into their cards! Oh! that mouse! So cute! Mine will go to my newest grandson.
A million thanks to Lisa & Andrea! You gals did a great job...as usual!

landerson1129 10-14-2013 02:09 PM

Hi Mary -

I'm not sure what happened, but thanks for letting us know. There's no doubt that you brought everything needed for everyone. You're an old hand at swapping! We'll be sure to address this the next time we have a swap.


landerson1129 10-14-2013 02:11 PM

Hey everyone,

Hopefully you heard Andrea announce that we are hosting a yard sale this week that will include lots of stamps, paper, inks, embellishments, and organizing items, as well as a ton of Longaberger baskets and pottery.

If you are interested, this is the link for our Craigslist ad.

Hope to see you there!
