Good morning, ladies.

Kandie, you still have today if you wanted to complete any more VSN.

I finished 4 more face masks last night - 2 for DH and 2 for DD. He only wants plain (preferably dark) fabric. I did manage to find some in all my brightly colored (mostly floral) quilting fabric. So far, I've been using bias tape for the ties, which I have lots of in all kinds of bright colors, including pink and orange and yellow and green. I don't think those will work for DH. LOL But I have black. I know I could use self fabric for the ties, but that's more work. I can't see spending that much time on something that is going to be temporary.

Good morning ladies! Thank you for the love on my Alpha cards. I think this is the first time I have been on top of things. Today is a chores and crochet day for me. I shall check in later in the afternoon to see how you all are doing. Have a wonderful day!

Good morning, Melody. Good for you for making the masks. I agree about not investing a lot of time and money in them, as I too HOPE the need will go away in a few weeks.

I think I’m VSN’d out for now, but I might do the CAS challenge if I can get these fingers to stop aching.

DH has the fidgets again, so he is going to the store to see if the bakery section has any more of the Raisin Bran muffins I like.

We heard a rumor that Walmart may rope off all but essential areas of their store such as the pharmacy and the grocery area. Has anyone else heard that?

Morning!

Son number 2 stopped today for some masks and some Easter clothes I had gotten for my granddaughters. Was very hard to just see him through the patio door and not be able to hug him. So of course I cried and am still tearing up. It all just hit home!

So I'm behind now and have a headache.

Off to take care of the dogs and then sew some more after I load my cards so I don't forget since today is the last day for VSN uploads.

Have a good day...type to you later.

I hear you, Ann. The neighbors directly across the street had a visit from their grandchildren this weekend. They sat on their porch, and the children stayed next to the car in the driveway. Because they were talking loudly, I heard every word, and most of it was on the order of how much they hated that they couldn’t even give their grandparents a hug.

Good morning! Annette, I am glad you got to FaceTime with Jayne. But we missed you. In fact we missed all of you that weren't on the call!!!!


Oh, Ann, sorry you are crying. I know you are used to having them there a lot of the time. When it gets back to normal, I bet you will be hugging them all the time!
For us that isn't that difficult because they all live so far apart, we never see them but once a year! That makes me want to cry!

No, Kandie I hadn't heard that about Walmart. So sorry you are fighting allergies. Mine aren't that bad. If I don't take an allergy pill, my ears stop up and hurt and my nose is terrible, and I get a headache, but usually not even that bad. And it is year round. DH gets a cough from the drainage from seasonal alergies. We both take allergy pills and floanaise. That seems to control it. Just have to remember to take it.
Thanks for all the funnies. I always share them with DH, and we both laugh!

DS2 works at Walmart and they haven't done that yet because he stopped a shoplifter who had clothes in her bag. No supplies of food etc.

Sorry you are sad, Ann. This too shall pass, right?

Yesterday, we did a zoom video chat with our kids. None of us are gabby, so it was kinda funny - nobody knew what to say.

DS mentioned something Google has called Duo, that he thought might be a possible alternative to facetime. After I left the group on Saturday, I did find another place on my phone that I needed to turn on the camera. I'm not sure if that will solve the problem for me or not. I guess my DD & I will test it out.

Lots of chat! Wow! My wrist is really sore today...so not much typing for me! I've been trying to comment on cards, but with my wrist flaring up, I need to take a break.

Thanks for the funnies Kandie! Hi all and sending hugs and good thoughts to everyone!

I decided to join the ABC challenge, and have posted my first using alligators and animals. I'm a little late to the party, but I hope you will excuse me. Finding this thread was a challenge for me too!!

Good morning! I am running behind this morning, didn't sleep well last night for some reason.

Kandie, I can so relate to you with the allergies. Mine have settled down because of the rain and hail but when it stops and we go back to spring-like weather, the allergies will be back. I'm enjoying the reprieve.

Jayne, I only have to be out in the sunshine for 10 minutes for my skin to turn pink. Stay much longer than that and I'm red! Yes, I'm happy DD2 is interested in learning to bake bread, it is fun to have her in there working with me.

Thanks for the measurements on the punch, Melody, that was most helpful. I don't know SU doesn't list sizes. There was a demonstrator who used to make that available online but I didn't find her yesterday when I was searching. I hope that what you found on your phone is the fix for why your camera wasn't working. I think your phone should still be able to do it.

Melody, another suggestion for the ties on the masks is to use ribbon. You might have some of that around too!

That cracked me up, Kandie, when you said your DH told you that you are grounded! And then he gets the fidgets! lol I haven't heard that about Walmart either, but if they go that route, I'm sure glad DD1 picked up some card stock for me last week!

Good morning, Annette! (It is still morning here anyway!)

Oh Ann, I'm so sorry, this is hard. A crafter I watch, Kelly Latevola, mentioned how hard that was for her and her son to watch her dad through the glass door and not be able to hug him and talk to him. (((hugs))) and I hope your headache is gone.

Loved the funny about blonds disappearing from the earth, Kandie. It reminds me of the one I saw that when this is over, we'll know everyone's real hair color! Of course, people can color their hair at home, that's what my mom did.

Kathy, that sounds like a shoplifter who was going stir crazy staying home!

Melody, too funny, I can just see the quiet video chat. At least you got to see each other, right? And perhaps being quiet is better than having everyone talking over each other?

Oh no, Gracie, sorry your wrist is bothering you. Hope that passes quickly.

Welcome to the Alphabet Challenge, Anne! Glad you found us and joined us!

I made up five card kits and sent to my card class friends. I sent them a picture via a group text. I got the idea from our class demo. She has sent us two now. But this way she will be able to play too!

Welcome Anne!
Gracie, I hope your wrist feels better soon.
Catherine, SU only lists the size if the image is not full size. Since most of their images are full size, you could just measure that.

DD1 came home from work with the information that they may have to start wearing masks while they are working. She is not thrilled. But she did go through my fabric scraps box that I know where it is (there is one missing, well, not missing, just somewhere in the garage) to find fabric to sew two masks for herself at work.

Ann, I printed out the instructions from the Youtube that you shared for her to follow. Her plan is to use ribbon for the ties.

That is such a blessing, Kathy, that you did that for your card class friends so your demo gets to play too.

Thank you, Annette, I didn't realize that.

Hi everyone. Welcome Ann..you will always have fun here..some of us are crazier than others and some of us like lollies (sweets or candy to you). I’m a blow in but they have all accepted me...I think lol.

(((Ann))). My heart goes out to you as I know how much your boys and poppets mean to you. We have just had FaceTime with ours again and son1 is home. I hope to drop eggs off to them before Sunday...if I dare venture the shops this week...eek.

Gracie hope your wrists are ok today and yep I agree not enough licorice lol.

Kandie, hope your allergies have settled. Our weather is crazy...34 degrees today so my allergies are up and down at present. I’ve also not finished VSN..I have 2 cards to go and will do them later. I’m not going in for the prize drawing so I’m in no hurry. I also have my alpha cards to finish and scrapbooking...gosh not enough time in a week lol. I also have to comment on everyone’s cards...phew. I need a nap now

DH read yesterday that zoom is being compromised by scammers...and Houseparty. I’d like to find out more about Google Duo. I think Kathy is researching that. It was such fun that we must have another get together.

Keep well everyone. We still don’t have masks and we are only being told to wear them if we are sick and the ones that cover most of the face. Apparently you can still buy some on eBay so I’m going to check those out. Remember to wash them regularly.

Time for me to get off my butt and do some housework..yuk

Before I go I noticed that I have a lot of posts in 4 years and I’m catching up those who have been on this site for years..how does that work lol

Good advice Catherine, licorice may be the cure.

Jayne go get that housework done. Time for me to relax! LOL I'll be thinking of you!

Jayne, each time you post in a thread or comment on a card, it adds to your # of posts. I don't chat a lot, so it takes me awhile to add many. Also, I don't do a lot of commenting on cards. I try, but get distracted...

Good morning! I hope everyone is feeling better today. I'm asking you
all for any ideas you may have to help me out. DH and I were supposed to
be on our way to Hawaii on friday and with all the snow still around
here, it has me a little down. I want to make the best of a bad
situation, so I have decided to bring Hawaii to me and surprise David.
I'm going to make Hawaiian food and drinks, and decorate my house. Good
friday always starts our spring break, so we have the following week
off. I want to greet him at the door with a lei on thursday when he
arrives home. I have some of those in the costume
bin. I'm also going to create a "tiki bar" area where I will
put my blender for smoothies etc. If any of you have ideas for diy decorations, I would be grateful.

Good morning. We got the heavy rain, thunder and lightning last night. Miserable night, with Dusty shaking and running around the house all night. Every time she went down the hallway her nails on the wood floor would wake me up, and I’d get out of bed to look for her, and she’d take off running. ALL of us are drinking a lot of coffee this morning, lol.

Annette, do you have seashells to put around? You are probably already doing that. I am not a decorator, but I bet Kandie has some ideas. I think it is great that you are doing this. He will love it!

Morning!

Annette, what a wonderful thing to do for your spouse! Happy staycation!

What a remember about Hawaii on our honeymoon was the fresh fruit and the beautiful lush vegetation! And the craters and mountains.

Can you make a drawing for a wall? Do you have large paper or print images?

Annette, here are a few paper ideas and a terrific fresh fruit bar.  Fruit and vegetation, just like Ann suggested!

Hopefully those photos give you a few ideas, Annette. I love your idea, but sure wish you were going to the real thing instead.

Thanks for the ideas! I am also going to try to create a photo booth. I found some old blue sheets and rolls of tulle and am hoping for a waterfall or a wave to surf in. I have the basics figured out, just don't know how much I will be able to get done. I have some giant coffee filters that I got years ago, that I am dying to make leaves and flowers. When I say giant I mean 2ft across when flat! I don't know what the machine looks like that they go into but they were donated to the school and they couldn't use them so they gave them to me. I think the hardest part is going to be trying it all out and then hiding everything until I can set it all up on Thursday. We go to the islands every year but I guess this is the next best thing for now.

Oozak.com | eCustomer Service at its Best!

I think Sharon asked me where I get my Copic refills from, above is the link for OOZAK.com

I have bought Copics from them and refills.
