oh, I'm sure I'm going to have lots of head-smacking moments! LOL So many nurses are kind of old school and don't like change, especially computerized changes!! I will probably be living on Tylenol for the next few weeks...hehehehe


My husband said it was him or scrapbooking... so I took pictures of him packing and made the cutest page ever!

I got a pile of scrapbook supplies for my husband. It was the best trade I ever made!

I am hoping to scrap this weekend but I haven't been in a swap In a while.

Glad to see this thread!

Thanks Andrea! I was doing it right but for some reason it took half a day to update????

Wow seems like everyone is working a ton of hours right now. I know I am but it's worth it! In a week I will be sitting on the beach with my BFF and fellow swap peaCan't wait!

Becky I have never been to one of the big scrap conventions. I have been to a local retreat and some of us local peas get together to crop on Monday nights. Can you believe I have 3 local peas? I found one of them on here! Hope everyone is having a relaxing weekend.

A quick vent.... My DH is an IT pro and can fix or recover anything. He also is an IT specialist. We have a friend that is trying to start a photography business. So I asked about pricing and the rates were insane! More than hiring a professional. So I haven't booked a day yet.
The vent is that she called today wanting DH to come to her house to fix 4 computers and recover a 5th hard drive for free! It's hours of work. He offered that she could drop the machines at our house but she told him that she has personal data on them and she would rather he come to her house.
When he told her it was 6 hours at least and we only have 1 day off right now, she thought he was difficult. So he told her he would work for trade... She does the family photo and he does the machines. She said no, that she can't just give her product away!
So today when she called for him to come over stat! We ignored her calls.

Ok I'm done!

Kerrie... that just makes me wanna go GRRRR.... I hate when people feel like their "work" is more important than anyone else's...because it feels like she is saying just that. I can't just give my time away, but you sure better give YOUR time to ME... Obviously not as good a friend as thought.

Wow...I don't think I woild have been so nice as to ignore her calls :tounge:
I hate that. Your DH would have had to bust his hump for her with very little in return. Sorry that happened.

I dont mind working the long hours, I just wish I had stayed under the 18 hr. overtime threshold. Oh Well, It will still be a nice check.

Becky, I don't envy you. I just sprnt the week training 65 new associates and I think a little over half of them just couldn't care less. Good luck!!

I work for Ross Dress for Less Stores. We opened a new store in Greenwood, SC.

No I wish I worked somewhere Crafty. We do occasionally get some crafty things though. I got two Martha Stewart punch around the page punch sets for 12 dollars and a set of AC Glitter (the 24 pack) for 7 dollars. So I keep my fingers crossed.

I love working there but the hours for the new store openings are brutal. I went down on friday. Friday and Saturday I worked 22 hours. Then Sunday -Thursday I worked 74 hours. Was suposed to off Friday but they called and asked if I could come in and of course I could. (I was sitting in the hotel room trying not to fall asleep). So after it was all said and done I hit 98.9 hours in 7 days.

I got home on Sunday and yesterday morning I started getting sick. I guess my immune syatem (my whole body really) is just worn out.

We used to get K&Co. And MAMBI Page kits, Stamps and Ink but that stopped about a year ago.

My long term goal is to get the management exp. Here and open a LSS. Our closest Scrapbook Shop is an hour away.

Anyway that is probably more than you wanted to know about that. hehehe.

In other news, I finished 3 Layouts the Saturday I had off in Greenwood. One for a Guest DT spot on a new challenge blog. One wirh Amy Tans Ready Set Go and one with Dear lizzy 5th and frolic and Echo park Sweet day.

3 Layouts in one day is a record for me. Maybe I need to work hours like this all the time and I could get caught up.

I hope everyone is doing well. Any big news? Any little news?

I have shopping plans this weekend. I just got my paycheck for the last two weeks and with 35 hrs. Of overtime I am shop/scrap and shop for scrap. I am finishing up the swap that I am hosting and getting ready to start a mini alnum swap.

Becky, how did your training go?

Yay for an overtime check!

I have a crop to go to tonight. I host one at our church every third Friday. I am bringing some supplies to make kits for the PL spots that were flaked on. I also have to give a speech for speech class and the ladies are so kind to listen and let me record it there. I have to show at least 5 members in the audience to get credit.

I really want to play with my new stuff that just arrived, but I have had no time due to homework...BOO!!! Next week is worse. That is why I have been pushing to get all PL kits in on the due date because if they don't go out to you guys Monday, it will be a while before I can get to it again. I am sitting here waiting on the postal lady.

How about you Renee?? Anyone else have some great plans you wanna share??

I start my training tomorrow and Tues and then I start teaching Wed. This weekend was my only days off for 2 more weeks and then it gets more random than that...LOL I had wanted to spend a couple days last week getting my "craft on" but I spent one day in the ER as my oldest granddaughter had a seizure (she's 2 y/o) - freaky scary and now has EEG scheduled tomorrow and then spent my other day off being lazy and just cleaning and organizing some of my scrappy stuff. My table looks awesome right now and I just couldn't bring myself to mess it up! LOL


My husband said it was him or scrapbooking... so I took pictures of him packing and made the cutest page ever!

Hey everybody! I have been lurking on the swap forum for weeks now debating joining a swap. By the time I decide I want to join one, it is usually full. lol I was wondering about the "suggestions" for participating and hosting swaps here. I have been participating in and hosting swaps for about 10 years now. I have never done either here on 2Peas though. Are the 'suggestions' really suggestions or are they rules? Do I have to join 5 swaps before I can hostess or is that for newbies to swapping?

Welcome! Generally to get any participation in a swap, peas on here would have to "know" you or be familiar with your swapping history in order to jump in and sign up. It's always a good idea to complete a few swaps successfully so you can gain some trust on the board. If a swap is full, still post and ask if you can join. Sometimes the hostess will open another group if interest is there. I hope that makes sense. Others may have more input but that's my 2 cents! again, welcome!

Thanks Andrea! I went back to school so I have been out of the swapping scene for a couple of years. All my old swapping boards are either gone or pretty much inactive. I'll try to see if I can wiggle in or maybe angel on a swap or two!

Ya'll are so funny! I hope you have a wonderful time!

Jeip, I am sure there will be spots soon that will need an angel. There are signups for a mini album going right now. Now that quite a few swaps just completed, there will be more opening. Keep your eyes peeled.

I am home with two sick kids today....trying to get my homework done...IMPOSSIBLE! I hope everyone has a great day!!!!
Everyone in my PL swap should get their packages today!! YAY!

Andrea I love your kit pif but I have purged quite a bit and don't know what I would put together.

Becky I can't wait till your able to swap again.

April you know there are 4 local peas here in town that I know of. Stansgal and I were thinking of having a 1 or 2 day crop and inviting our fellow peas. Would that be something you'd be interested in? No fees or anything.

I know Renee, I just purged two boxes of stuff. I am moving back in to my craft room, so I have found a few more things, but it was hard to come up with that!

So glad y'all can meet and crop! Fun!

I ordered a cameo for my birthday...don't tell anyone....

Andrea that's awesome that you ordered a cameo! I want one so bad but I have a hard time justifying it right now. I have only had my cricut for about a year and a half. That's about how long I have been scrapping. I have accumulated about 50 cartridges in that time. My hubby was in hobby lobby one day and about had a heart attack when he saw how much they cost and asked me how many I had LOL! I explained that had been Christmas money, birthday money, eBay etc...let me know how the cameo cuts. If it does as well on intricate cuts as I have heard.

Andrea how were you making your wax or parchment paper envelopes? I am very interested.

I am excited about getting together with some fellow peas! I forgot counselor58 is also close! I know she will come. She is related to Meleah.

I just printed out some Easter pics. I had a total fail yesterday....DSLR charger not here...left in Vegas??? My other digital camera was dead. Even though it was fully charged, it had some issues and refused to take pictures...so all I got was cell phone pics! ARGH!!!!!!!!!!!

I updated my PL today. That felt good. I also finished my media/scraproom and moved in this past weekend! YAY!!!!!!!!!!! My absolute favorite room in the house!!!!!!!!!! I will have to clean up a bit and then post pictures. I had to downsize a bit and gave my mom and sister a good bit of stuff. I kept only the things I loved. I am in a much smaller space, but the room is SOOO pretty!!! Maybe I will scrap more now that I can see what I have! Ha!

What are you up to Renee? Other friends? Any scrappin' happening this week??? I am off for Spring Break, so no assignments. I did my last midterm yesterday ON EASTER! What is wrong with some people? LOL But that was when it was due. I made an A. Now I am off for the week...no homework! Thank God! Only one more year to go before I start my masters.

Anyone else???

Wow April and Andrea I admire you ladies that are able to keep up with college, family and work! I have a hard time just making sure my 5 just get their homework done!

Andrea I have camera issues too. My nikon d3100 dslr just doesn't seem to be taking as crisp and clear pictures as it used to. Hope you find your charger. I have ordered some replacements off eBay.

I have a few swaps to finish this week and my 7yo dd had her first softball game tonight.

Ok ladies I have a question. Is it just me that has trouble balancing what I need to do and what I want to do? I need to do a much better job balancing my diet and exercise. Last year I lost a lot of weight and put it back on as I stopped working out as much and increased my scrapping time. It's like when I have an hour free I would rather sit and scrap than go to the gym or for a run or whatever. Anyways this is something I battle and I'll probably be on here a little less as I try to fight my other battle. My birthday is in April and I'm thinking I want a bodymedia. Anyone have one? Well I'm off to clean the house a little so I can maybe get in a little scrapping time before work.

I complained about the same thing to my husband. He told me to stop by our church gym (free membership, awesome workout room, treadmills, etc.) after drop the kids off at school each morning. I never would have thought of that. I am always task oriented and want to get home to start the clothes or do my homework, etc. After the kids get home, its all downhill with cooking, cleaning and homework. So, going in the morning first thing knocked it out. I am so thankful for my husband. He can be very insightful sometimes. Even though I am homeschooling one daughter this year, I pack her up and her laptop and make her sit down and do homework while I walk a bit on the treadmill. I haven't gotten past walking on the treadmill, but I have not set too high of a goal yet. Just getting there and walking is about what I can manage right now.

Andrea a church gym with a workout room! That is awesome! Ours is just a basketball/volleyball gym. I have a membership to a gym here in town I just need to go use it LOL! My hubby says first thing in the day also. Get it over with. I tend to procrastinate because I have all these other things that have to get done.

Wow I am a chatty one today! Well guess what I did tonight? I was working on a swap and had most of the finished product laid out on my craft table and I knocked over a bottle of perfect pearls heirloom gold with the lid off! I should know better! Well now I ruined several pieces and wasted most of one of my favorite sprays. I love that color on vintage type products.

I don't know what's it doing in your neck of the woods, but I'm sick of the rain here. I'm about to change my name to Noah and build an ark

OH no Renee! That is awful!!! I have accidentally spritzed Mr. Hueys all over EVERYTHING before...lol. That was before I realized you needed to put in a box.

April, I sent the rain to you....lol...the ark floated by our town when it rained for four months in a ROW! We were tired of it...enjoy! LOL Just kidding.

I scrapped my little heart out today. It is not often I have a day to myself. I have tomorrow all to myself too! WOO HOO! I cut a million things out on my Cameo and did two little ole layouts...hahaha. OH well, I had a great time doing it!

Andrea that sounds like an awesome and well deserved day!

April I think its supposed to rain tomorrow too. I'll be working all day but it wont hurt my feelings if it rains out 7 yo dd ball practice.
