    Default An apology (or two)

    First of all I want to say I am sorry about this card swap. It seems my cards are MIA and holding everything up. We've been in and out of town these last few weeks and right before that Peyton turned 2 (on the 24th) with a birthday party that weekend and we had a house full of company. All of this was on the heels of getting back from England, so I haven't even been lurking as much as usual to realize nothing had been said about the cards yet. Gah. I am so disappointed and I also feel annoyed that it's made everyone wait

    Also... I've been lurking here for ages and even though I did start posting awhile ago I have never actually posted a layout. That's been bugging me for awhile now but I always do things and end up giving them away and not photographing them. Can I also just admit that I am totally intimidated by how great your pages look?? LOL And the number of pages that are posted--wow! It seems I am always chasing my tail just to keep laundry done and food in the fridge and I haven't yet figured out how to work scrapping in without leaving my house every Friday night for the local crop (which isn't even practical because I can only do that from time to time). You ladies really rock!

    So there are my apologies and confessions. Hope you don't mind me hanging around anyway. I trust that someday I will figure this all out

    Marissa! No apology needed! Remember this happened last time with Brittany's cards? Sometimes the mail does crazy things, and that's not in your control. Sorry about that! And don't feel bad about not posting a page. (Though I'd love to see you work!) Don't let yourself ever feel intimidated about posting! Everyone has a unique style and way they capture memories and it's all good.

    okay for one, stop apologizing. lol. It's not your fault your cards got lost in the mail. I've had looooads of stuff get lost in the mail. Don't feel bad.

    Second, from my own experience I have time to scrap only because I don't have kids yet. lol....sometimes I too get intimidated by how good some of the pages are around here but they are so inspirational so I try not to let it bother me. Plus it makes me try harder to come up with quality lo's....we all have different styles though! I look forward to seeing your pages when you have time to get some done and feel comfortable posting!

    yeah no apologies... i don't know whats going on with the mail lately but my cards got lost for the card swap (no explanation from the post office either). Was totally bizarre I mailed them out a few weeks ahead of the deadline and still Steph didn't get them in time. Then just one day they were delivered to her out of nowhere. Hopefully Steph will get them though and can send them back. I'm convinced that my mail carrier/post office just doesn't like us since i'm constantly sending and receiving packages and making them do more work (especially since all packages they have to bring up to our apt and can't leave down by the mail boxes) lol.....but anyway no sweat.

    i keep forgetting to take pics of things as well. moms get busy we all understand completely.

    we still love u, promise.
    btw great new siggy peyton is just so precious.

    No apologies hon. We all know you've been busy. Life is rough, and scrapping has taken a backseat for me too.

    The mail is to blame for your cards....not you. Don't worry about that.

    As for your LOs, we would LOVE to see some. Don't ever feel like your's aren't good enough. We all have different styles. Your's are just fine.

    We would love to see your pages - don't feel intimidated, everyone has a different skill and style, we're just here to share what we like As for the amount of pages, I only get that many done because I let things like laundry and cleaning pile up lol What's that saying? A Clean house is a sign of a broken computer ...

    I'm so glad you posted so that we can tell you to "quit feeling bad!" I'm so sad that your cards have not made it in the mail, but I totally don't think it was your fault. I just feel bad that you don't get to participate if they don't come

    As for showing us pages, you should feel bad! Just kidding! Hopefully you can show us something soon. We really do like to see each others work, but I'm glad you are still around during this busy time.

    You girls are SO sweet. That's what forced me out of lurkdom in the first place!

    Thanks, mamas! Your replies are very kind
