And yes, you did thank me for giving your name to Karen. So glad she was able to get them to you, Victoria~

Ann, and Hawaiian, thank you for the love on my scrap page. Not too much love on scrap pages, as on cards. And , Ann, I really appreciated all the goodies you sent me. I didn’t know you would notice my page, so was glad when I saw you had seen it. Yes, and Hawaii was right there with me when I was doing that page!

Yes, and glad to see Roberta chatting. I was so glad to see her named DD! And congratulations again!

Gracie, I think your gone, now. I missed saying have a safe trip!kathy is having fun, eating, crafting, and sweet fellowship, and probably little sleeping at her retreat!

Hi, to the rest of you! I am now in the scrap mode! . Oh, but Ann I will be watching for the new thread!

Hi everyone! We had a lovely surprise today - a friend, who used to live down here but moved to eastern Oregon, is back down here for a few days. So we got together with him and had lunch. It was lovely to see him, I don't remember when we last saw him.

As for yesterday, I got a lot done but not enough - as is usually the case! However, it looks much better around here except for my crafting corner. I had to totally disturb that area to take my desk top into DD1's room to verify that it would work in there. That was great for her, but it totally upended my crafting area and it hasn't been restored to order. DH vacuumed yesterday and he piled stuff on top the desk that had been on the floor so he could do a thorough vacuuming job. Now I just look at my desk and think I want to go take a nap!

Gracie, I hope you have had a lovely time at the wedding today even though you aren't 100% just yet. It does sound like you are on the mend, though.

Yikes, Kandie, that was a lot of shots at one time. I guess get them over with, right?

Jayne, your story about the belly laugh reminded me of my DH. The other night during family worship (it had actually mostly finished) one of the girls said something that just struck him funny and he was laughing so hard for so long, our youngest said, "We broke dad!" It was hilarious and, since he is usually the one who is serious and trying to keep the three of us on track, it was especially noteworthy!

Happy Sunday everyone.

I've just finished going through Ann's DTGD cards and done all of hers now...phew.

I've decided after 10 galleries going back through and finding about a dozen cards in each one that I had missed, some of which I have never come across people before, that I am going to call it a day. I so wanted to go back through them all but I really have to move on and start looking at galleries that are current. I'm also frustrated as I open a card that I am positive I left some "love" on, to find there's nothing there from me....no idea what is going on. The important thing for me is that I left comments on all the alpha's I found and Ann's. If i've missed anyone, I'm sorry.
Time to create...I really want to do some scrapping today. Have fun

Whoo boy, don’t ever get three shots at once. I have been in ache and pain agony for two miserable days. Advil has become my best friend, lol. Not many steps to record on my Nutrisystem counter, only the few it takes to take Dusty out, go to the bathroom, and get more water. If there was a counter for how many attempts to sleep, I might have won an award, lol.

Sorry to hear that Kandie! You sure have had a rough time of it lately. I hope today is much better for you! Hugs

I only have a moment to check in...so much chatter! Yay! Congrats Roberta!

7 hours in car round trip yesterday for wedding! It was good to see everyone. Whirlwind again today and still coughing. Darn! DS1 and family visiting today. Final packing...YUCK! Go to visit my mom tomorrow and on to my sisters...then leave early Wed. for Montana wedding. No crafting for me for awhile, but I'm going to be checking in to see what everyone's up to. Have a great day! Off to the races...

Good morning! I got up and went out and moved 13 wheelbarrow loads of wood and stacked it on the wood pile. Didn't get it finished but now I'm hungry so I think I'd better go make breakfast! I think I earned it. DH has been gone this morning, he went to meet our friend that we had lunch with yesterday. They went for coffee. DD1 had the opening shift this morning, they might have gone to Target Starbucks for their coffee. My neighbor came out while I was working on the wood. He thought I might be picking up garbage as they recently had a bear get into their trash.

Fabulous tp cards, Ann! Love those blues!

Jayne, I think you have done an outstanding job commenting on the galleries. It really does take time.

Oh Kandie, sorry you are dealing with so much pain. That certainly was a lot of shots you got at once.

Gracie, enjoy your DS and his family today. Those annoying coughs just hang around for too long. Safe travels on your adventure.

I am home! What a gorgeous weekend! The best weather ever and more people around than usual. There was a wedding in the woods at the outdoor chapel but I didn't get to see anything. I went for walks but I have to admit I had a lot of pain this weekend. Friday night I woke before 2 and couldn't get back to sleep until nearly five. I slept better last night but everyone else was snoring or up and down to the bathroom! But at least I could go back to sleep when they woke me. We had our monthly card class at retreat. The three ladies who come to class came to our cottage. We made three projects and two cards. I helped my friend scrapbook. I applied double side tape to the mats for her pictures. So she got everything done she had brought. They watched a movie with Kevin Sorbo called Let There Be Light, but friend and I sat on the porch and chatted instead. It was too nice to be inside.

So how is everyone? I didn't read back too far because I couldn't see how far to go back. I hope all is well.

Aloha everyone!! Gosh you all are so busy running around while I'm stressing over my poor gs having to watch another furbaby. We love him because his one of the 8 born to Skye and Nitro but poor guy always get the short end of the deal when my sons inlaws dog is in heat..I swear some peeps should not have pets since they seem to think it's easy to just dump them on others ... We have to ajust our lives as well as our furbabies lives to accommodate their nasty careless actions towards Phathom but poor Phats it's not his fault . What a hell of a shame....well I hate to see what they gonna do with thier 2 new addition that they now have as well ....it's crazy how peep only want them when thier babies and soon as they become grown they just seem heartless. Okay I best stop because it's really getting me upset !!

Every year, one friends DH brings her to the cottage. Every year we say to him, thanks for bringing her and he always says thanks for taking her! Then we all laugh. Well this year she talked non stop and drove half of us batty as we couldn't speak! So when he came to pick her up, I said thanks for taking her! He laughed and said see, now you get it! LOL

Welcome back, Kathy! It sounds like you had a good weekend, with the exception of the pain. Sorry about that.

It sounds like your friend must not get out around people very often? That is my guess. We had a friend who used to live in this area but he lived by himself. Whenever he was around, it was hard to get a word in edgewise and my theory was always that he had so much to say because he lived alone!

Hi Vickster!

DH and DD2 are outside working on the desk for her closet. I think DH hopes to get her furniture done and off the deck so that we can refinish the deck. We have to do that before winter comes. We just have too many projects going simultaneously! I'd better get up and see if I can restore my craft desk to working order from moving everything to verify it would work in DD1's room!

Catherine, I thought that too, but she gets out just as often as I do or more! She has a quilting group she attends and I mostly run my parents to appts! She has a kind heart, she's very kind and sharing, and everyone including me loves her.

Those are lovely, Kathy. I'm curious about the watermelon. Is that a card?

It holds a Hershey kiss! All it is is a 2" circle punched in red and a frame made using the 2" punch and a 1 1/2" punch. Then she punched out the seeds with one of the su trio punches.

I agree, Vickster, about the gold foil/blue dsp. That is so pretty!

As for our neighbor, he was busy with his own chores!

I'm supposed to be working on my craft desk...can you tell I'm procrastinating? I've made some progress but need to get back to it.

There was unending flow of chocolate this weekend! Unfortunately, when my mouth is sore, chocolate burns the roof of my mouth like crazy!

I was put in charge of a newsletter to send out next year about retreat. The cost for the weekend has gone up to $330. If each lady paid $27.50, wed have it covered but I found out our organizer ends up footing a lot of the bill because there are a few who have never given anything! I usually give between $50-$100 because I didn't want her stuck paying so much, but was very disappointed to learn that at least four ladies, maybe more, have never paid anything. They are the same who sit at the meal table and talk until all the clean up has been done. So I'm trying to find the right words for my newsletter. I don't want to offend anyone, but I also don't want to do all the worm or have our leader paying so much. I'll come up with something. I want them to come, but I want some fairness too!.

Kathy, gorgeous cards and projects!! I would have never guessed that there was chocolate in the watermelon!! Outstanding!!

It's a shame that four people are not pulling their weight for the event. What happens with the food? Do they help with that?

It's really over my head that these women come and don't pay for any of the cost! Maybe a quick note to all of them that hey did you know...

They do bring food. But don't help with chores. That's why I'm doing a newsletter for next year. I can set up clean up detail and tell them the cost. Instead of just taking donations, we'll just set the fee at $25-30 per person. That's not bad at all and that will lower what some of us have been paying to help out. I know one year I gave $200 so any donations over cost was applied to the next year by our leader. She would just keep paying the extra without saying anything but I didn't want her to do that. Her DH has been off work since his stroke nearly a year ago. I guess federal laws say no CDL trucking for a year after a stroke. He can start driving again next month!
