Just sat down to relax! Long day, but lots of fun! We went with DS1, DIL, and 3 DGDs to the Pumpkin Patch: hay rides, a petting zoo, corn maze, bouncy house, corn pit and caramel apples! The granddaughters kept wanting to go and hold the kitties and baby bunnies! Then, home and played cards while DH made supper! Great Day!

Kathy so glad you had a great retreat! It's good you are doing the newsletter and you can let everyone know what it will cost each person next year, a schedule for clean up duties and that way everyone knows ahead of time. Fair is fair! I can't believe people wouldn't pay their fair share! I love your projects and beautiful Christmas cards!

Sis, so sad about the puppies. What is wrong with some people?

Catherine, it sure sounds like you've been busy too! You accomplished a lot this weekend!

Ann, great TP cards. It will be awhile before I can do mine, but I will do it!

Jayne, I may not get back to DTGD galleries either. I did get 14 completely done. Life sure gets busy some times!

Well, I'm pooped out tonight! Almost all packed. You would be amazed at how full my car is of my craft stuff, I kept adding more and more! LOL The trunk and back seat are completely full of craft supplies! I have room in the passenger set for my suitcase! I have priorities!

Have a great night all!

She sounds like me..I chat a lot and I definitely get out lol.

I also have a friend like yours and now I see myself in her and I have stopped chatting so much lol. Some of us have to realise it’s not all about us..I’ve learnt

That is so hard to comprehend, Kathy, that they don't help with the cost of the weekend! I can't imagine and then to not help with chores?

Love the video and sweet dreams!

Sounds like a fun-filled day, Gracie! And glad to know you have your priorities straight on your packing (though your DH probably doesn't agree with us!). Sweet dreams to you too!

Today has been a painful day for me. I don't really want to go into details but would ask that you pray for me to be able to let this hurtful thing go. My girls are offended on my behalf which is sweet of them. I appreciate your prayers.

Gracie, glad the wedding went well and hope that you enjoy the next few days before you head off on Wednesday. Safe travel.

Kandie, 3 shots in one arm...ouch. I think our Drs will only give 2 at the most in one arm and the 3rd would go in the other arm. Rest well.

Welcome back Kathy...must check out what you made...will do that next. I can't believe that some of the ladies don't chip in equally whether it be monetary or with chores. I agree with Gracie, maybe put the facts to them in a nice way and let them know what is required for next year. I'm sure people love it so much that they won't mind.

Happy day to everyone.

Great creations Kathy. Love the foil ones. That melon is so effective. So glad that it all went well and you had fun.

Judy, wow, you are one busy lady, or at least you have been for a few days! I don't have that much energy.

Kathy, how fun to go on a stamping retreat! I've never been to one but would love the opportunity. In your newsletter, I would write at the top the cost and what is expected of each lady who attends. That way there is no misunderstanding and everyone shares in the duties and pays the same.

I love all your projects, Kathy! My favorite are the first two. Great job with them!

Good morning. I’m typing with my left hand because I’m eating a cinnamon roll with my right. I like to unroll them and then I get crumbs everywhere.

Kathy, your retreat projects are so lovely, and those foil cards are my favorite, although that watermelon chocolate holder comes in as a close second!

Catherine, prayers for the hurtfulness to pass quickly. Hugs.

We are going on a 3-day mini vacation to upper Michigan in a couple of weeks. I heard DH tell his DB that we'll need the entire car just for my makeup. I take great exception to that statement. I should only need the trunk, lol.

DH left at 6 this morning to go fishing with his DS. Dusty thought it was time to get up, so here we were, sitting on the couch, pitch black outside and no DH, and she decided to go back to sleep. I’ve been watching makeup videos by Monique Parent. She has a video series called GRWM, Get Ready With Me. She goes on a lot of acting auditions and parties, so her makeup gets wild sometimes. She’s fun to watch. And now that the sun is finally up, I’m also ready to go back to sleep!

My left arm is fine now, but the Dr must have hit a muscle in the two injections to the right arm. It is still so sore and the area is very warm.

I worked out to a video yesterday, did I ever feel old. It’s a Sitting Seniors video, exercises while sitting in a chair. 3-pound weights. One-third of the 44-minute video was chair aerobics, one-third was with a light weight, and one third was balance standing behind the chair. I wobbled all the way through, I am so out of shape. But then I felt good because I got through it, lol.

Happy Monday to all!

Kandie, getting back in shape is hard....take baby steps so you don't end up real sore and want to give it up. Cinnamon rolls are pretty yummy, but all the effort you just put into working out, well, you just defeated it.

I realize that with getting older, the make-up needs to change. Light colors & powders show wrinkles more. Ewww Any tips on that, Kandie, would be appreciated.

Catherine, I think i know you well enough to say you will forgive and move on. It takes time. So take that time to work through it. God understands, for sure. I speak from experience. Satan likes to keep this stuff in the forefront to make us think we havent forgiven but he has already been defeated!

Kandie, I wish I was there. I'd have gone fishing with DH. I hardly got out at all this year because son sleeps in a lot on his days off. I'm actually planning to go up to my uncles pond by myself if I have to! And I don't understand why they gave you three shots in the same day! How would you know which one gave you a bad reaction if one of them does?

That is Amazing so many of us Alpha sisters won a prize from DTGD! Woo Hoo!

Ann, I woke up early but started things late. I don't like when that happens. Nothing special on the agenda except to finish up a DD card today. Thanks for asking~

I can't wait to receive my prize. I did have to double check the list because I thought the bigger prizes were left for Queens and this year for the hostesses. I think maybe there were a few links that were not right? I don't know, I get mixed up these days. What I do know is I WON and I'm so excited. Congrats to everyone who won and thank you ladies for commenting on all of my cards. I have a lot of catching up to do, but I like to post comments when I come across a card that really catches my eye. Sometimes they are from previous years. The great thing about this site is that you can always post comments, enter challenges, etc. Love it all!

But if you look at the 2 winners for the Stamp and store those 2 are really valued less the. The upper winners since it's just $25 and they probably will pay more to ship to them the. The prize it self well I know it would to Hawaii anyways or overseas or Canada
But

Now, I am excited to get my brushes! We should share a photo of our prizes when we get them.
Can’t wait for tomorrow’s new Alpha Challenge threads to post!

Cleaning house today, and finishing the FS card. Tonight, Ladies Bible Study pot luck.

Katherine, praying for you, sweet friend.

Question time: Have any of you ladies ever sold your cards? I'm interested to know what price to put on them and where you have sold them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you~

Roberta,

When someone wants only one card, I sell them for $5.

If they are buying more than 3, I lower the price to either $4 or $3. I never sell them for less than $3, no matter how plain it may be.


Family & Friends get to buy at $3.

I sell cards to my brother's parish for $3 and they resell for $5. So the church makes $2 on each card. I will exchange out cards that do not sell. My brother is bringing 10 back to exchange tomorrow, and they want 15 new ones.

I have also sold them at craft fairs: Sign read $5 each or 3 for $12.

My son's company bought a few for $4 each to send out to clients.

Did this help?

Roberta, I forgot to mention that all of them come with a mailing envelope and in a clear envelope to keep them clean until they use them. I also include one of my business cards in each one.

JBgreendawn aka Stacy sells her cards at a fair I think, she does it all the time so you could ask her. Also Anita sells cards.

Those prices sound about right, Sally!! It's hard to sell cards. I just give mine away, it's my hobby!

Friends have said they buy cards that hold gift cards from fairs. My SIL gave me one this past Christmas with a pocket in the front and on a wine bottle.

Thank you Sally & Ann. I appreciate your input. I have sold a few to relatives in the past for 3.00, but if I were selling to anyone else, I would want more. I think the more intricate ones would pull a little more also. Now a days any type Hallmark card sells for about 5.00 and up, and they are all mass reproduced. Our cards are one-of-a-kind. Funny: Whenever someone texts me how they love the card I sent, if it's a Christmas or Thanksgiving where I'm sending several altogether, I have no idea what I sent to them! I have to ask what it looks like and they send a picture of it. Lol I get bored with making multiples.
