A certain Betty (shilo - shooosh) has a banner that is halfway done. My dh is the best, he brought totes of holiday supplies to my spot on the couch from my upstairs craftroom since I cannot manage crawling to it just yet....crutches are not up there. That and my little one playing independently gave me fun Mommy craft time/Shilo banner making time. Yay for me ha ha.

Good morning Betty's!! I have a couple questions...

Would it be alright if I changed my cookies to chocolate sugar cookies? A friend of mine made them last week and they were delicious!!

Does anyone have a picture in their gallery of their recipe cards? I just want to get an idea of what everyone else's look like.

Hi Bonnie, sorry I was MIA. I had a crazy week last week. LOL. Took my younger daughter to get an asthma inhaler, and ended up doing two days of x-rays and tests, we should get the results next week. Then my older daughter popped her knee out (something that's happened before), but this time ended up in a full leg brace until the swelling goes down, then they'll check it out. I ended up in Urgent Care with 4 teenage girls. But luckily they entertained themselves. I think my kids are trying to make sure we pay their yearly deductibles on our insurance before the week is out. LOL.
I hope you have an amazing trip to see your son. I love the luxury of a motorhome, we went tent camping last year, and it was miserable. Just not our thing. We'll take a camper or motorhome any day.
My DH took me out to lunch today. He gets home late at night, and came upstairs and woke me up to ask me. It was so sweet. Mainly because it is SOOO out of character for him. He would be happy as a hermit, so choosing to go out in public is amazing!!! I sure do love that man.
I'll be headed out shopping this coming weekend, and I'll be taking my list with me. I can't wait to find some treasures for you.
Talk to you soon,
Lissa

Just wanted to stop by and say HI to Her Majesty (yes you our mighty Queen) LOL and of course my awesome Betty Rachel!! Hope ya'll have a great week. I think I've caught the "crud" from someone and just not feeling up the par. Too much to do to bring me down though.

I did a little shopping Sat, mostly for some paper, to get a start on the banner but still need to find out what Rachel wants it to say!


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!

Just checked USPS and you should have a surprise in today's mail. (It actually says "delivered" but you may not be home.

Headed out to do a little shopping today - have been looking at your pinterest boards to get hints.

Hey Betty Jodi, how's your week going so far? I have a few more questions for you. Do you have any Pinterest boards I can check out? And I know that some parts of California can get cold, but I don't know about the part you're in. Do you get a really cold, blustery winter? Do you need a warm, wooly scarf like we do here in Michigan or would you prefer something lighter weight?

Good morning to all my sweet beautiful Princess Betty!!

FYI...

You have a little over 4 weeks left to get your recipe cards done before the POSTMARK DATE! I have already received Becky's and a few others have been mailed Your recipe cards can be mailed early but they have to be mailed by the PM DATE!

You have a little over 8 weeks left to get your Betty Box done before the POSTMARK DATE! Remember the key to this swap is to plan your shopping! It may seem like you have a lot of time but trust me it will be here before you know it. I like to make a list of things I want to get and keep it in my purse. That way anytime I'm in town I have my list with me and I can do my shopping & check off at least one or two items.

Glad to see that 2peas is actually behaving itself and letting me post. Talk about being a bit aggravated over here! But, it's all better now and I can take a deep breath and just breathe... yeah, I wish!! Who done and gave me this cold/flu stuff can have it back. I'm way to busy to be sick

Anyhoo, hope everyone has a great "HUMP" day!

A big hello to Queen Betty Marla. So you have no crown huh???? Well, just beware, you will have soon, lol. Not giving out anymore info.

Hi Miss Princess Betty Sara - I haven't seen you around lately, hoping everything is ok with you and yours. I have been shopping and planning for your goody box and if all goes the way I have down on paper, I may have to get Santa to loan me his sleigh, lol. Hope you ok.

Hugs

Hi Betty Shilo,

I am open to either but I do not have a fabric one. Would love too but either would be fab. I jumped the gun with yours with burlap. Is that okay? I can definitely change.

Becky... I didn't think they were going to get it fixed after Andrea (Ising) broke the bucket. I'm just glad she waved her wand or was it her broom stick and finally fixed it The double & triple posting was driving me along with the bad gateway message. I'm just glad it's fixed now

Lisa... OMGoodness you haven't even started on your cards yet I can scratch Becky's name off her cards and put your name on them and we will wait until the 2 days before the postmark date to tell her I'm still waiting on her cards. Go check out the OP I have your back

Rhonda... Nope no crown just a spatula & whisk I wave around when I'm bossing everyone on here around I mean sweetly giving orders

Pam... Have a safe trip

Good morning Bettys!!

Hope everyone is having a great week! I was going to have a craft day with my friend today but instead I will be running around for my 2 oldest kids

I hope everyone is having a great time getting to know your Betty. If you need to get more information from them please ask. The more you know them and they know you the better your Betty box will be.

I also want to welcome Miss Betty Jeannie (scrapprincess2002) to the Betty swap. She has kindly stepped in to fill in a spot for me. Thank you again Jeannie

Hi Rhonda! I'm finally going to get started on your collection of goodies this weekend. Sorry for the lack of online presence... My laptop is down and I hate typing on my phone.

Are you on Pinterest?

Have a great weekend. I may have more questions once I dig into your list!

Hi Betty Bonnie, to answer your questions:

Do any rubber stamping ????? Not really, but I'm trying to learn how to integrate bits into my scrapping

Any sewing ??? Yes, I sew. My girls always had matching outfits and costumes when they were little, now I seem to sew more to repair things. LOL.

Do you collect anything???? Yes, I do collect things. Unfortunately some are quite large. LOL. I collect old Singer sewing machines (my oldest is from 1890), old fans (I have about 7, all different sizes), old leather luggage (they are filled with books), old typewriters (I only have 3, but I love them), and old wooden spools (both with and without thread). I am filling a large apothecary jar with the spools. My husband would say I also collect old furniture and windows, but he can't complain too much, because he always likes how my projects turn out

Do you like vintage ???? I LOVE vintage, it's kind of my theme with everything.

How is your trip going so far? I've been to Vegas twice, once when I was 10, and the other time I was 22, pregnant, and there overnight for a friend's quickie wedding. Do you have any plans to see any shows or anything?

How about you, do you collect anything? Do you like vintage? sewing? Stamping? My mind is racing with ideas, but I get so nervous about my purchases. LOL. I think that might be normal though.

Good Ole 2peas has prohibited me from looking at wishlists, profiles, etc (I hope thats fixed soon), do you have a 2peas wish list? What is your life outside of a Christmas swap? What do you like to do? Favorites, etc. I'll also have more questions, lol.

Have a great weekend.

Oh and Queen Betty Marla, seems the tiara fairy was commissioned to craft a beautifully stunning tiara fitting for a Betty Queen. I can't wait to see what she makes for you (it better be good cuz I have a can of raid with her name on it if its not, I don't care if she is all cute and fluttery).
