I can't wait to see ENOUGH show up in threads.
Thank you Just Kip for contributing to the peas vernacular.

I love this place.

Is 5 pages "enough" LOL Or does it take 9 or 10? What is "enough" to one person may not be "enough" to another.

I'll order that enough, as it is I say it to my children all the time when they are being sassy. "ENOUGH" with that mom look you know. But that doesn't seem to work past the age of 12.

You can soak a turd in alcohol based hand sanitizer, but it's still a turd and it's still not clean.


i'm going to use this the next time someone tries to foist sanitizer on me!

I suggest we use "turd" as a new version of "word."

For example, Pea Poster says, "That's so wrong."

Rather than agreeing with the simple, "word" response, you can now use "Turd." It could mean agreement, and that's so wrong. All in four letters.

I like it.

For those Mom's that need the ENOUGH word, it'll have to be in a font that conveys the 'mom look'.... Some of you font whores can probably rattle off 10 suggestions in as many seconds so I'll leave that to you.

For my own house, I need one that says: No Bossy! DD hasn't figured out that I'm the boss, not her.

And I'm seriously curious about the whole DD cancellation for herself thing violating laws... maybe b/c it's in the contract that you sign up front that it doesn't. If it wasn't then it would definetly be a problem.

And I'll say it again like I did last year... That's why companies sell insurance to people hosting events.. so that they CAN refund money if they have to cancel.

Though oddly enough there was a local concert that just got cancelled b/c the band got a chance at a better city and they aren't refunding either. I don't think that will go down well in the end.

It is not ENOUGH until we reach 6 pages, preferably 8.

I have been laughing through this thread!

The peas certainly know how to make it light and funny!!!

The DDD has a few other bits that have not made it into the thread yet. I know, ENOUGH, but really these are (in my mind) worthy.

1) DD's husband refunded another pea the who said she planned a vacation. Said pea, made a post of it on the GS board. THAT is why such a stink was made over the 'non-refund' DD kept telling Sharon she couldn't have.

2) DD came and did her psuedo-apology AFTER Bazzill, Prima, and other companies who support her were contacted.

3) there were DDD threads on message boards from England, New Zealand and Australia, going on at the same time. ALL were about what happened to Sharon, and linked to the peas.

Just a bit more food for thought...

In addressing signing up with such a crazy refund policy - I would have been an idiot too. I would never ever assume that a crafting event had such a stringent and one-sided policy. I have gone to CK Manchester for six years now and to this day cannot tell you what their policy is. I guarantee that from now on I will be checking.

The point to me is not what was in writing, but what was right. And all along the way Ms dd did absolutely the wrong thing. And the final slap in the face was the Paypal refund. Disgusting.

I usually take most of the classes my LSS offers. Well, its not my LSS anymore, since I've moved. But I was still stopping in while in the area etc.

In January, she had DD out to teach. The owner and one of the store employees kept pushing this class on me. It was actually a couple of DD classes.

I finally told them I wasn't interested because of this mess. I'm sorry, but she doesn't get my money anymore. I even cancelled a kit once because it contained some of her stuff. I cancelled and then resubbed the next month. I just can't stand her.

So when the store owner and employee were pushing these classes I finally told them why I wouldn't pay that kind of money to take her class. I wouldn't take it if it were free.

The store employee works for DD and she got so flustered and turned into the 'leave Britney alone' guy from YouTube. Seriously, she got upset because I was 'badmouthing' Donna, this saint.

Look, honey, if that woman is a saint, then I'm the second coming of Christ.

Between that and a serious kit mistake, I don't shop there anymore. This store needs to rethink their devotion to DD.

ETA: I don't think the classes ever sold out either. They were always advertising open spots. Typically, a class of this caliber would sell out in less than a day but they advertised it for weeks.

And Ali Edwards - I never did see what people saw in her. She boasts that she scraps the 'everyday'. Guess what? I've been scrapping the 'everyday' since I started. I don't do posed shots etc. I don't buy into all the hype.

"I am trying here to prevent anyone saying the really foolish thing that people often say about Him: 'I'm ready to accept Jesus as a great moral teacher, but I don't accept His claim to be God.' That is the one thing we must not say. A man who was merely a man and said the sort of things Jesus said would not be a great moral teacher. He would either be a lunatic-on a level with a man who says he is a poached egg-or else he would be the devil of Hell. You must make your choice. Either this man was, and is, the Son of God or else a madman or something worse. You can shut Him up for a fool, you can spit at Him...or you can fall at His feet and call Him Lord and God. But let us not come with any patronizing nonsense about His being a great human teacher. He did not leave that option open to us. He did not intend to."

Weren't these kits put together by her kids for the event?

I swear I saw read some where that she had her kids put the kits together and people were angry because of the money spent to attend this function which didn't even include airfare or hotel. And her kids did a piss poor job of putting things together.

Anyone remember that? Or am I dreaming?

I am *so* glad the scrapbook celebrity phenomenon is over. Seriously, it left such a bad taste in my mouth when I'd go to classes or when I went to CKU-A and you'd meet these people or take a class and some of them were just... dickbags. The ONLY "celeb" that was nice and funny and seemed to genuinely like what he was doing and the people he was teaching was Tim Holtz. I still buy his products.

I think they forgot that they AREN'T celebrities; they are business people, as much as they want to call themselves "life-artists." You can be a damn "life-artist" all you want, but you if you want to pay the bills, you'd better treat your customers well or you'll be making layouts about being bankrupt using some ol' dollar store stickers and your kid's dried up glue stick. So there.

Anybody know how much the daughter's pillow cost? I'm curious.
Looks like $2.50 plus shipping.

Who the heck is this 'Enough' woman anyway?

Oh...here she is:
Enough Woman goes digging... Apparently this was the thread on GS and though Enough Woman agreed with the OP (who meant to post here- generally saying 'if you put it out there, you can't call the shots on what comes back at you')she decided to root out the DDD thread here to slap hands.

So to recap- on GS she thought it was funny. On NSBR she says 'Enough.'

I have not spent one penny on DD items since the debacle and I've happily shared the situation with friends and family- many who've also declined to spend $ on her items/classes.

Sharon handled herself with class and grace. Even in the midst of her own medical nightmare she refused to be impolite to Prima Donna and held up her end of the bargain by not posting on the giant thread. What she asked for was reasonable and understandable. I'm sure that Sharon would have MUCH preferred to be attending the event than facing her sinus surgery! But DD failed over and over when she had so many chances to make it right.

And for that, my wallet will remain closed.
