Catherine, when I first starting buying SU, I bought some ink pads (yoyo yellow, green galore, etc). That was in September 2009. When the new catalogs came out that next summer, they retired those colors! I hate when they revamp the regular color families! That's why I only buy what I like now. I don't need them all, and it helped me get over the full set syndrome! LOL

I ordered a new computer because my laptop was 6 years old and didn't have much memory, slow and wouldn't update. So now I'm using my Samsung tablet which is really slow. Hope I get new laptop this week as I left my old one in Wisconsin so they can transfer all my pictures to new one and then send it to me.

So glad to be back in sunny Arizona. Now, I have to go read all the chat and try finish Falliday Fest. Have a wonderful day everyone!

Good morning! I am back! Not much sleep, until last night in my own bed. We stayed up crafting or talking every night until one/ one thirty. That was Thursday ,Friday, Saturday, Sunday night. It was like a four day slumber party! I love this group of ladies. And we are all different ages. I met at least three my DD’s age. In fact they might know each other! In talking, we realized the girl that was maid of honor in her wedding was the same in DD’s wedding! Small world! Some were from Oklahoma, and some were from other parts of Kansas. We just had a super time; I think about the best ever. This is my 6TH one in three years. I never knew about them before. I guess because I worked full time. And I will say that Cracker Barrel will never be the same after the 12 of us!
Oh, and the Fried Turkey dinner was great! It is like chicken fried steaks, only it is turkey, and you get two sides, and cranberry sauce and unlimited biscuits and corn muffins. I split it with another lady, and we were plenty full. Oh, and did I mention peach tea with unlimited refills! I guess I don’t get out a lot. The rest of the time, we took turns in pairs fixing meals. We had decided ahead of time, just brunch and dinner. We did taco salad and I fixed vegetable pizza Friday night for our turn.
I did have time between eating and talking to get 15 or 17 layouts done, and three months of my calendars, stamped and colored, and three Falliday cards done! I sat next to a lady who colors with Copics and she gave me some tips. Oh, and we played craft bingo, and I won a 12 by 12 album for my layouts.
I wish the Alpha group could be do this. It would be a blast. The house was great too. Lots of space besides the crafting and sleeping areas. In good weather it would be great to be on their decks. Oh, Sunday it was 70 here, and we walked in short sleeves. Yesterday, it snowed a bit and was cold. This morning it is 8 degrees!
I have to go catch up on the chat. But , good morning!

Good morning! Up early to try to get bread made before heading to work. It is baking right now. I also uploaded a couple of cards including my E card. Last night I was busy working on these cards and I have planned my D card and was ready to go to work on it when I looked at my watch and saw what time it was. The amazing thing is DH was still up too! So DD2, DH, and I all went to bed. DD1 was the only sensible one in the house and already asleep.

DH is working from home today - and probably until we know what is happening with the van. Thankfully, his work will allow him to do that.

Kathy, when I first got serious about stamping, I ordered that entire set of brights ink pads with yoyo yellow and green galore. I loved those colors! And then they immediately re-did their color families. However, my demo at the time convinced me that they don't do that very often, it was a "rare" thing to happen. Now, all these years later, I don't think it is as rare as that demo thought!

I hope you got some good rest last night, Ann!

Yay for a new laptop, Gracie! Ours was purchased in 2014 and slowly has things that have quit working...such as the keyboard! We just plug an external keyboard into it and keep using it. It will need to be replaced soon, I think.

Sharon, that sounds like a fabulous time! Fun and productive, so wonderful. Yes, it would be such fun to have an alpha get together like that. I'm not sure how much we'd get done, think we'd be too busy talking! Your comment about Cracker Barrel reminds me, there is a Cracker Barrel going in that I see on my commute from home to work. We never made it to one when we were in Tennessee in 2018 so I'm interested to check it out after it opens.

Hi Dagmar! Yes, sometimes life gets too busy, doesn't it? Hope you can find some time to craft soon.

I need to head to work, chat with you later!

Morning well almost noon!

Hi Dagmar, yes life tends to get in the way of crafting!! People before paper is the rule!

Catherine, I don't know who you can get up in the morning when you stay up so late!!

Sharon, oh my that does sound like so much fun! Wish the Alphas could do it too! Someone needs to win the lottery!

Just popping in quickly to ask that you pray for my DH's former co-worker. As I was driving to work, DH called to tell me that his co-worker (as well as several others) were let go today. DH had no idea this was happening, then he cut our call short to take a call from his supervisor which left me wondering if DH was next. He is safe...for this round. Obviously, we have no way of knowing what the future holds, but, at this time, please pray for his co-worker (and the others). Thanks.

So sad. And these companies keep it secret until it happens. Guess they worry people will quit before they are ready! I heard a local company is shutting down again. Its called ACF and they manufactured train cars. They laid off years ago, but ten started up again. A friend of DH's worked there, but he took another job instead of going back and that is proving to be a good decision. DH has been fortunate. He works at a well acclaimed University for 37 years now and he is the only one who knows how to do his job. They hired him an apprentice last year, but then pulled him to another job three days a week, so DH only gets him twice a week! They really need to be training someone because DH is tired and wants to retire in June. We hear they may offer an early retirement package, which would be one more reason to go!

That's why my spouse is retiring on May 1. They offered early retirement. He is already 66 but was going to work till I turned 65. So it will be 2 months of paying insurance before I turn 65! Yuck!

Kathy here is a you tube video showing that Pressed Petal Paper and suite. It is a long video, but she does show the paper with the card fronts in the first few minutes.


Hope the link works.

That's cool Sally!

Ann, DH is only going to be 63 1/2 so we both will need insurance. He thinks that might be part of the package. I hope so.

Hi all, I wonder if I did something wrong on poinsettia card. I'm trying to do uploads on my old tablet. It is a pain. I hate trying to type without a keyboard. So I probably won't comment on cards until I get my new computer.

It might just be site issues. I got database error message on my tablet. My phone is brand new so I'm not having issues on it.

I'm using a MacBook Pro and am having trouble commenting as well. I was already trying to comment on Gracie's pop up card and it seems to be hung up. I then tried the poinsettia one and it is hanging up on that as well. I haven't tried someone else's project to comment. I should go try that but tend to think it is a site problem.

Hmmm, I commented on someone else's card and it worked just fine. Not sure what is going on.

Default Hello

Whew- a whilrwind couple of busy days, and today I am staying in!!! I have many chores to do....also have a touch of a stomach bug....

Since my back surgery in May- since I can move more and not have constant back spasms, I have lost 15 pounds- and really needed to....I have a goal of 20 mire, but just eating less and walking no less than 10,000 steps currently. But Sharon, I do not want it back!!! LOL
Saron, I love the idea of going to crops, just hard to drag supplies around- I still have back and neck issues, so I am not supposed to lift much. Many of the ladies in my ATC group attend crops, I have only gone once and I took my mother, so I did not get much accomplished, but it was fun. Oh, I did go to another in Lake Geneva Wisc a few years ago- really had fun at that one.

Ann- I am behind- but love the picture of your beautiful home up on a hill- and covered with snow- bet that scene is even better IRL!
And, you are quite talented with your cakes! Wow : ) I love cake, but I usually do not eat frosting. Jack's cake is fabulous! And the flowers- gorgeous!
My comment on Gracies card just now stalled and not taking it.

Gracie- safe travels! And, hope you will love the new laptop when it arrives! Mine is larger- and I love having a larger display! When I travel and have to put it through security, the kids always comment on how big it is - : )

Catherine- I love the idea of birthday pie!
We have farmers on both sides of the family- in our area, we had rain that made the fields wet late into the season, and the crops have to dry out before harvest, or the farmers have to pay $$$ to dry the corn or beans or whatever out before the elevator will buy them.
Prayers for co-workers! That just happened where my husband works- he is 59 and not ready to retire yet. They let everyone go in his department except one other person about a month ago- totally unexpected. I do not know what they will do when the 2 left leave, as they do not have people working with them to learn what they know.....

Dagmar- how blessed to have this time with your Grandchild- and I bet she will cherish the memories!

Kathy- hope your cold is better!

Kandie- prayers for your sister!

Melodie- Thanks for your instructions mentioned- I want to try that tutorial- it is so beautiful!

Shirl- I will have to look up fires in Australia- the wedding we were just at- the groom is grom Australia!

Merla- That pressed flower DSP is so pretty- and I love that washi that is flower petals!

Vicki- prayers for the docs to fix what is causing you such horrible headaches!!!

Hope I did not miss anyone. I have tons of chores to do and want to get some stamping done too!

I checked the Falliday tutorials just now, and none are posted today- the tutorial is up though- wow- so pretty- I am definately going to gove that a go!!!

Waving Hello if I missed anyone!

Shelly

I'm not going to do all the challenges but I will do all the tutorials. I don't know if there are prizes or not, but that never mattered to me anyway. I get frustrated uploading links to all the cards. Its just more fun an relaxing if I don't put pressure on myself to keep up.

Afternoon! I'm running behind and to make matters worse just got hit in the forehead and left arm with falling half gallon bottles of juice!

Went to the hall closet to get out a pan and bingo down they came! Ouch! So now my son said stay in touch with him (he's upstairs) in case I have a concussion! It really hurts, tears were flowing!

Oh Ann! I'm so sorry that happened to you! I'm glad your son is keeping a close eye on you! Give him a hug for me!

I know how dumb of me! The closet was stuck I couldn't open it. Went to open the other side and boom!! The one good thing is they did not open up and spill all over! They were red juices!! Can you image what a mess that would have been.
