|Posted: 3/25/2014 7:02:35 PM|Hi Jodi S..awww yes snow and cold! I have loved the winter my whole life, but as I am getting older I seem to love spring and fall the most! I don't like hot (above 80) and cold (anything below 20). It's nice here...mid 30's with spring on the way! This winter was cold with barely any snow. So, not too bad. It's nice you have craft stores to shop at. I'm slowly going on line as well...anything you are currently working on? Do you do project life? I'm officially a year behind, but not for long! I'm leaving the hubby and kids behind for 3 days of scrapbooking at a spring crop. A friend is going on sat, so I'll get a ton done Fri and Sun! I never get a lot done when I scrapbook with friends (that's the fun part though right-gabbin with lady friends!) Have a great rest of your week!
You Secret Sista
|Posted: 3/25/2014 7:59:05 PM|Hello Victoria,
I know I have not given you enough time to answer the last batch of questions,but I thought of some more.
Do you collect anything for the yard, frogs, fairies, gnomes,etc?
Do you like nail polish, if so what colors?
Have you done PL with your Christmas pictures? Are the similar companies compatible to PL?
I am watching my 7 mo grandson right now, he is desperately trying to get my necklace. His mother is taking his brother to Urgent care, he has a wicked cough.
I am going to a crop this Saturday with some friends. We are doing a potluck for lunch and it should be a lot of fun.
Are you working on any projects now?
Have a good week, night for now.
|Posted: 3/25/2014 8:19:07 PM|argirl08, your secret sister is here! I've just been super busy! I see from your questionnaire that you are expecting a new baby! Congratulations! I actually did some shopping for you today How's the weather where you are? It's still somewhat cold where I am I am ready for summer! Hoping you have a great week, and I can't wait to get to know you more!

Happy Wednesday SweetsforJanet. So good to hear from you! Sorry it's taken a while to read this board. What I planned on being a relaxing week has turned into one errand after another. Hopefully today I should catch up on some housework (boo) and have some crafting time later this evening (yeah).
Hope all is going well for you and spring is in full bloom in your part of the world. Looking forward to getting to know you during this swap & will chat with you later!
Have a great day!
Just one more post!
|Posted: 3/26/2014 11:10:08 AM|Not telling what I have gotten, but I have been shopping!
Hope you are having a good week. It's cold here again, of course because I am off today. But it is supposed to be warmer the rest of the week.

|Posted: 3/26/2014 12:58:20 PM|Hi Tessas_SS!! I'm doing fantastic. I'm very ready for sunny days and warmer temps but overall I'm hanging in there and trying to keep myself busy.
I don't have many plans for the upcoming weekend so I'm hoping to get into my scrapbook room and get things cleaned up and organized so that I can fit my elliptical machine in there too. It will be nice and cozy with that in there but fingers crossed for a new home this fall/winter so I'll have lots more space.
Have a great rest of your week. Talk to you soon.
Will I ever get to Buckethead?!

Hi there CoutureCrafter!! So excited to see you on here.
I like all types of acrylic stamps. Doesn't matter to me. And, yes, I love thickers! I use them all the time.
I love bath & body works, I especially like the fresh scents. I don't do nail polish.
Hope that answers all your questions and I hope you have a great week!
Have a blessed day!
|Posted: 3/26/2014 6:12:30 PM|Hello Michelle! (Mlcwikla) how is everything with you? All is well here! We are on spring break this week, so that is nice! I noticed your a collector of stamps, are there any particular ones that you don't have that you would really like?
I noticed that your sons birthday is in march. Has it already passed? Happy birthday to him, we share a birthday month!

Hey secret sis!
I'm currently starting to work on autograph books/journals because I'm taking my three kids to Disney World in August! Other than that I'm working on albums for each kid, but all I have done is first year for each.
I don't have a project life kit yet, I'm a little overwhelmed at all the choices. I'm thinking it's a great way to scrap a lot of my travel pictures from over the years.
South Carolina is great, I've lived here for two years now. It was funny to watch the whole state shut down over five inches of snow in February. I'm from northeast Ohio so five inches felt like nothing!

I have read through your list - looks like we like (and dislike - neon!!) a lot of the same things. Do you have kids or pets that you scrap? Any special subjects, themes?
I see you have chosen the spirits and tea baskets. What kind of wine/teas or coffees do you like? You will have to let me know what kind of treats you like too!!
Do you have any special plans for the weekend? I am going on a scrappy weekend and can't wait! I look forward to getting to know you. Talk soon ~ your sis

Spring is finally showing up here, might hit 50 tomorrow and rain.
Have a good day
|Posted: 3/27/2014 10:55:38 AM|Well hello Maysflowers4u!!!! I'm so excited to meet you! Sorry for the delay in my responding to you...we are on spring break this week and I had planned for a much relaxing week....hasn't happened. Oh well. The weather is....well..confused....because apparently it cannot make up its mind whether its time for winter or spring...I'm just so over winter and ready for warmer weather!
We are expecting baby #3 at the end of April and we are excited to meet our new bundle of joy!
Hope you have a great weekend ahead...we are attending a conference at my church...the hubby and I so I will be out of pocket!
|Posted: 3/27/2014 4:08:02 PM|
First off, I"m sorry to hear that your grandson had to go to urgent care, I hope he is ok.....
Did you give me your first name? I feel like I keeping calling you "mayfunforvictoria" LOL.
The crop sounds like fun, I wish they had some where I live in NY, I'll have to look into that, I would like to go to at least one, yours sounds really good as food is involved as well!!! Can't be that. Now let me ask you, when you do crops, do you have a certain bag you bring every time with the same items? Just curious how that works.
I"m going to send you a private message and answer the other questions.
Can I ask where you live? Just curious!!!

Do you have anything to add/update to your wishlist?
|Posted: 3/27/2014 5:24:35 PM|
Hey to my secret sis Happy clicks!
Just read over your response.
I am excited and also a tad jealous you for getting to visit Disney! Love going to Disney and even better with the young ones. . Where are you staying? On site?
Wow! Are you driving or flying? How far is it from SC? We drove it last year in a coach bus but I can't remember. Except it was long!
There are many project life kits I like. I have not tried one yet. I am horrible about printing pictures. I bought a selphy and do like it. Do you have a printer at home? Where do you prefer to get prints done?
I have to cut this short to get dinner on. Be back soon!

|Posted: 3/27/2014 6:19:10 PM|Hello Meleah!
Just checking in to see how your week is going? Hope all is well & you've found some time to be crafty. It's been a busy one for me. I did get to help my son's 5th grade class release salmon in the stream behind the school. Tomorrow I get to go on a field trip to the marine center with my 3rd grade daughter. I love being able to volunteer at my kids' schools. Plus, it also makes for good stories to include in my Project Life. Do you do Project Life? It's my 3rd year doing it. Last year I made/embellished all of my own cards. It was fun, but this year I've gone back to the basics: core kit & photos only.
Do you have any other hobbies you like to do besides scrap? I also love to crochet, read and do jigsaw puzzles. Now with the weather getting warmer where I live, I'm going to be spending more time out in the yard gardening. I don't really love it, but someone has to pull the weeds.
Do you have any plans for the weekend? I'm hoping to just relax, especially since my kids have next week off for Spring Break. Yippie!
Well, I just wanted to check in with you, say "hi," and wish you a good evening. Chat with you later!
What can I post about?

|Posted: 3/28/2014 2:43:40 PM|Hi MelissaSecretMum!
Happy to say hello...I love this secret mum/sister thing. It's SO fun. It was a busy week for me at work, but now I am scrappin for the weekend! Away from the house at a crop, so no kids or hubby I have to catch up with my scrapbooking and I am hoping to start on some vintage scrapbooks for a cool sale I signed up for called Junk Stock. I'm really excited as I've only sold my creations at craft shows. I had two "customers" tell me I needed to sell there. So, I am going for it! It was expensive for a little gal like me, but hopefully it will pay off! Hope you have a great weekend!
|Posted: 3/28/2014 4:36:12 PM|HI SpringforRoz. The weather here is also bipolar. Nice today, maybe snow tomorrow. I'm so over Winter.
This week has been an up and down week - started out horrible, but ending up ok. I'm looking forward to Grandma time this weekend with my 10yr old GD She spends every weekend with us, and it is the best part of my week. She loves to go in my scraproom, which she calls "The Creating Room".
I wish I was on a beach somewhere. I am looking forward to vacation end of April - not going anywhere, just not going to work. It will be a scrap-vacation.
Hope all is good with you, and you have a good weekend.

We will be driving down, it's about an 8 hour trip from where we are. I'm still debating where we'll be staying - I am torn between Bay Lake Tower at the Contemporary & Jambo House at Animal Kingdom Lodge. My youngest son has never been to Disney & it looks like we will be down there on his birthday! I'm trying to keep the trip a surprise but it's tough.
I am not great at printing pictures either. I usually end up uploading a couple hundred to surely at once when I have a promo code. Otherwise I occasionally print at CVS in town.

|Posted: 3/29/2014 10:27:38 PM|Hello to my secret sis! Thanks for the post!
Yep, not a neon fan. I am seeing it in fashion this spring and not sure I am for it. Maybe a tiny bit but full on, nope.
I do have kids. They are older teens. One is graduating and the other is a junior. Eeek! I do not have any pets.
I drink a cup of Jamaica Me Crazy k cup every morning. We have a Keurig and drink mostly medium roast flavored coffees. Now wine is totally different since we switch with meals. . We have vacuum sealers since hubby drinks white and I am a red gal.
I seem to be addicted to Reese peanut butter cups these days. Ugh! It is really bad and I am ready to throw my giant bag that I bought for Easter baskets away. I thought, I will have one. Or two.
I love Brownie Brittle. I can't remember who makes it. They come in bags. A great crunchy snack.
Hope this answers a little more about me. I appreciate you asking and taking the time to check in!
|Posted: 3/30/2014 8:30:21 AM|Hi Victoria
I do take a basic kit(bag) to crops and and workshops. Cutter, scissors, adhesive, basic stuff needed for all projects and than whatever is needed for that project.
I wanted to let you know I sent you a pea mail. It was funny, I set this up as a third account so I could have two SS going( ie: bunny SS and now May SS as they over lap.). I forgot the password for a day and ding it came back to me.
So you have a message waiting.
Can't wait for you to update your wish lists, the Joanne's around me doesn't have anything on your list.
If it is out there I will find it.
Have a great day

Well Shhhitsasecret I hope you find that table tomorrow, keeping it all organized is a challenge. I was able to finish some pages of a trip I went on, this weekend. I just finished a couple of swaps, so I may look for another to join. I try not to have too much on my plate. I have my daughter and two grandsons living with me. I watch them in the evenings for her. They keep me busy.
