Bump! I gotta get busy and send in my registration!

On an only slightly related note - does anyone know if there is going to be a shoebox in Milwaukee next month? I remember it being mentioned at the Madison event but haven't seen anything so far. October is a long time to wait - I need something in between! LOL! :D

schrades 04-17-2006 01:23 PM

schrades 04-25-2006 04:43 PM

pencil us in Miss Melanie!! Hey by the way I cased your card that was in SS what a hit!!

Melanie Swanson 04-26-2006 08:21 AM

Thank you for the compliment, schrades!

BTW, I finally joined Sam's Club just to see if they still had the Hershey's Cherry Cordial Kisses available, and THANK GOD ALMIGHTY they did!! I picked up a few bags (really...I did leave a few on the shelf...) and am blissfully enjoying them. Not sure if there will be any left by October, though...so I'll have to think of some other treats to bring along.

ahanek, check post #6 of this thread, there is a Word file attached that you can download and fill out. Then you mail it to Kathie (schrades) with your payment and you are all set! We will see you in October!!!! Woo hoo!!!!

ahanek 04-30-2006 09:31 AM

for some reason i cannot print the registration form in post #6. any help or suggestions would be appreciated! i even tried to copy and past in an email to myself but didn't work. how can i do this??

ahanek 04-30-2006 09:34 AM

the registration form in post #6?? i cannot get it to print. i even tried to copy and paste in an email to myself, didn't work. any suggestions??

ahanek 04-30-2006 09:35 AM

sorry for the double post!!! i'm new to this can you tell?

Melanie Swanson 04-30-2006 10:41 AM

Try this: Right click on the Word icon, and select "save target as." Then, save the document to your C: drive or your desktop. Once it's saved, open it from the location where you saved it.

Hopefully that will work--but if not, let us know!

schrades 05-01-2006 05:52 AM

you guys rock! Sorry ladies have had a VERY BUSY couple of weeks!
Thanks again!

hedgiemama 05-01-2006 08:46 AM

Wis. Northwoods, Shoebox Swap???
Do you Wisconsin Ladies by any chance have one of those shoebox swaps going? Add a few things, take a few out, etc..???

schrades 05-02-2006 06:07 PM

not sure about what kind of swap that is... this is a design one for everyone to take kinda swap. Tell me about yours though!!

hedgiemama 05-05-2006 10:28 AM

I think you just fill a shoebox(or larger) with stamp sets people are done with, ribbons, etc...odds and ends, and you mail it to each other. You can take a couple things and put a couple things in and mail it on....

hedgiemama 05-05-2006 10:29 AM

On second thought, that could get very tricky with the value of the sets, etc..people taking more that others. I don't know....it sounds kind of fun. But what you do, is swap cards...I get it now...

Melanie Swanson 05-05-2006 01:54 PM

I was thinking that it might be more of a 'progressive swap' kind of thing...where one person starts a project, and then the next person adds to it, and then sends it to another person, who adds something else to the project...but maybe that kind of swap is called something else?

I'm just glad it's Friday and time for VSN!!

schrades 05-05-2006 07:12 PM

that sounds interesting! VSN i have yet to try this! I probably missed it AGAIN this week!
