Virtual Crop Chit-Chat Thread

Morning girls!!! Linda has already posted an awesome challenge! Smile Can't wait to get off work tonight. Wish I could just call in sick. Wink I'm starting a crockpot of ham and lentil soup, so I won't even have to cook tonight.

See you all later......have a great day!! Woohoo for the crop starting today!!!!

Good morning!!! Well, I'm hoping to really be able to participate. I have a friend coming by shortly for coffee. I have to get Natalie to school and do a ton of laundry today. And we're having our winter HVAC service this afternoon. That being said, I'm optimistic that I can play here. I'll only have about 2 hours each tomorrow and Sunday during the day, and then hopefully I can get more done after the kids are in bed. DH is hosting a poker tournament so I'm single mom from dinner on.

I've been really busy with other stuff ...

Okay, here I am typing away, and I still need to comb my hair from my shower! Ack! Jack is sleeping, I'm hoping my friend arrives before I have to take Natalie to school so I can leave him with her. It's cold and rainy and nasty here, and since he's not feeling well, I'd rather not take him out in it.

Hehehehe... I just put beans in the crock pot so that I could make chili to take to the crop tonight. (Meals are provided at the crop but I can't think of a single thing ever made that has been 100% allowable with my new food allergies so I'm supplementing with some of my own food!)

Oh, you ladies are so on the ball! LOL. I should figure out dinner soon too so I don't have to worry about it later. This week has been so strange - we spent three days at my parents' house, just getting home yesterday, and we're leaving to go back tonight. While we were there SIL called to ask if we could come back for a bday party for BIL tomorrow. Of course we don't want to miss the party, but we probably wouldn't have stayed there so long during the week if we knew ahead of time about the party! Lol I was planning on scrapping a little this afternoon while Lindsay naps but now I'll have to pack and pick up the cake, so idk if I'll have time or not. If I don't have time to sneak in a LO today then I will try to sweet talk DH into giving me some kid-free time on Sunday! I can't wait to see all of your awesome work!

You all better motivate me to get my work done today so that I can play this weekend! Smile

I'm at work right now, but I'm loving the challenges that have been posted so far!

Oh, and all my scrap time is contingent on us keeping power for the weekend. We got a heavy wet snow last night (with more today and tonight) that's knocked out power to the outskirts of town already. The lights here at work keep flickering, so I don't know if we'll lose power today or not.

I'm excited to get started later today. Our weekend road trip got canceled because of Dh not being recovered from throwing his back out. There is no way that he would be able to sit in the car for 7 hours right now. So that means that I get to stay home and scrap!

Because I was planning on being gone from Thursday to Sunday we are in dire need of some groceries which will slow my day down....

I'm here and hopefully my boys will cooperate. DH surprised me last night by letting me know he arranged a babysitter for tonight and that we are going on a date. I'm excited about the date but irritated because he knows about the VC. Anywho, a date is a date. Saturday I'm using up my birthday presents of a massage and pedicure. I hope to hit a craft store as I will be without children for a few precious hours! Sunday is pumpkin patch day but at least then I will have more pages to scrap. I'll be here, just in and out.

Somebody inspire me for an easy dinner that's low carb and comfort food. Lol I have frozen chicken and ground beef (easy to quick thaw), a huge crock pot, plenty of beans. We had taco soup last week, so I don't think the family wants that. But I don't want to spend a lot of time on dinner, I want to crop!

I'm thinking of asking DH to pick up a rotisserie chicken at the store (he is stopping there anyway), but he's not a huge fan of those chickens ...

And I don't know if a comfort food that is low carb exists! hee hee. At least everything I would consider a comfort food is pretty high carb! Wink How about chili?

I really hope that I am able to find some time to scrap this weekend but my schedule is pretty busy. We have dance class, soccer tournament, have to finish painting my husband's grandparent's place, not to mention that I have not ordered any pictures. But I know I will find some time along the way.

To all the ladies, I can not wait to see what everyone comes up with.

Gwen- take the rotisserie chicken and use it in the chili!

I'm not a fan of rotisserie chicken either because of the bones. DH will pick one clean for me and then I will use the meat in a casserole or something.

White chili? Chicken, navy beans, pintos and tomato sauce with seasoning.

Chicken and rice soup/stew/casserole? Throw the raw chicken, chopped up celery, some onion, carrots, and seasoning in a crock pot with chicken stock. Cook all day. While shredding the chicken (about 40 minutes before eating), add 1 cup of rice, and (optionally) a can of cream soup (or another thickening agent). Cook until rice done.

Tomorrow Is looking good for scrappin. DH is helping a friend move in the AM and then has football so I have a nice quiet house all day.

Can't wait to see the work that happens while I'm away. Smile

Oh my! HSN is doing a scrapbooking hour and I just found something I want for Christmas. It's called We R Memory Keepers Ultimate Crafting Kit. It's a magnetic cutting board, with magnets, magnetic ruler, magnetic circle cutter (my favorite part),and a personal cutter with straight and scalloped edge. They are having it for $25 plus shipping but it's ordinarily available for around $30-35 so I can wait. Really cool though. First time I've ever considered buying something off a shopping network.

My kids came home and my peaceful time ended. Lol I have a raging headache. DH got home a few minutes ago - he didn't get the chicken since it's not dinner time yet, so I guess I'll have to run out and get it later. I think I won't be able to get back to cropping until after the kids go to bed, bummer!!!! I'm in the middle of my Charys lift. Wink

Thanks for humoring me on the dinner front!

Well, that didn't go as planned! Lol I started a LO (scraplifting Charys :)), but Lindsay woke up right after I started and she cried basically the whole time I was trying to work on it. Evan wanted to "help" me mat the pics, so that took three times longer than it needed to, LOL. And then Lindsay grabbed my pp and crumpled the corner of it. Hopefully Sunday will be a better day!!! Gotta go pack up our suitcase, and if I have time I'll try to slap a title on that page and post it before I go. I'm doubting I'll get to that before Sunday, though. You ladies have a great day tomorrow! Can't wait to see everything that I'm gonna miss!!! Biggrin

Gwen, your photography rocks! I especially love the picture of Andrew in the tunnel with his friend. And the one right after that of him. Hope your headache goes away. Sad

Michelle, lol at how we both started crock pots. Dinner is completely ready here, just waiting on DH to get home!

Kebrina, how did the baby shower go?

Beth, sure hope your power stays on, so you can crop with us! I can't believe you have snow already. :eek: Brrrrr!

Lena, I guess it was a little blessing in disguise that you get to stay home! We get to see your work! Smile But I do hope your DH feels better soon. Backs take so long to heal. :/

Nancy, a date night?!?! How fun!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm jealous too! Wink Be sure to hint to your DH about the HSN deal at dinner. lol

I JUST stepped in the door from work. Gotta change out of my stuffy work clothes, eat dinner, then scrap. Smile

Hey gals! I am just now getting to check in! I worked all day today and then had to play single mom tonight as DH had to work 2nd shift today so no scrapping for me today; I did however finish Kayley's Halloween costume!! Here is what I made (I will add my own pics later!): http://getsboredeasily.blogspot.com/2008/08/halloween-costume-button.html Hopefully I'll get some time in tomorrow!! Smile Hope you are all kicking butt with your scrapping!

Ugh, I have a sore throat and my neck is stiff. I'm praying I am not coming down with something!!!!!!!!!!

I'm back in my crop corner, DH is hosting his poker night(s) in the room next door. He has poker tonight, tomorrow, and Sunday night! Originally he was going to be in Atlantic City during this time, but he opted to host poker instead. The downside is that I keep munching on chips. Since I started South Beach diet about 8 weeks ago, I haven't had chips in the house. They are one of my major weaknesses. I need to try to stay right here in my seat and not get any more of them ....

Charys - can I have the recipe for your lentil and ham soup? I love lentil soup (if you got to my FB profile page, in my notes section is my recipe, but I can share it here too if you'd like it, it's yummy!).

Katie - bummer that you didn't get the page done. Enjoy the party, see you Sunday!

Nancy - hope you're enjoying your date. Bummer that today was a bust.

Kebrina - I'm so jealous of your quiet house tomorrow! Can't wait to see what you do.

Beth - I hope you don't lose power, that would suck!

Lena - wow, poor DH! Hope he feels better soon. But that's good that you can scrap. Wink Did you get the groceries?

Jess - what a cute costume! Can't wait to see your pictures of it.

Okay, I gotta quit gabbing and get back to scrapping. Given the way I'm feeling, I really should make an effort to be in bed in an hour (it's 10:40 now)

I whipped out two cards while the d.c kids were napping and forgot to take pics of them ! D'oh! Oh well..at least they weren't for any challenge. lol. One was for my uncle's birthday. I put "world class uncle" on the front...I went in and showed it to Wayne not even thinking and said "like it?" He goes "aww who's sent me that?!?" LOL! I felt bad cuz he really thought that was for him from one of the nieces or nephews . Whoops! lol

I seriously need to clean my scrap room up a bit before I scrap anything else. I can barely step anywhere for papers and such on the floor :eek:

Charys ~ baby shower? you mean wedding last weekend...Well i didn't make it. I ended up with a stomach flu and spent 2 days on my couch Sad but I still sent a card and gift with a friend to the wedding.

Gwen ~ Just remember my house is usually quiet because no kiddos just yet tomorrow I just won't feel guilty ignoring DH but I gotta work too Sad

Well work tonight was busy and I'm not sure I have the brain for scrapping tonight. Gonna go look at the work done tonight.

I made 17 cards tonight and only 5 are part of a mass production. I completely the shape challenge, the lift Charys challenge, the scraplift challenge, the room color inspiration challenge and the make something for someone else challenge (if cards count because that set of 5 is a gift set).

I'll take pictures and post tomorrow. It was a good night of scrapping.

Thank you to all of you for inspiring me to get my crock pot out! I always forget about that this time of year.

ugh, throat is no better today. I probably won't be able to work on anything until after lunch today. I need coffee and breakfast first. I slept in, hoping I'd feel better after doing so. poor Jordan kept trying to get me up to feed her breakfast. Lol

Michele - I saw your cards on the show and tell thread - AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You amaze me, I can't believe you did so many. Meanwhile, I spent forever on my one card. ay yi yi.

Ashley - I love the banner, it's super cute.

I totally went into zen Charys mode and channeled all those awesome cards she did. Went for the less is more approach and decided to take a break from mass producing (which I have no choice but to do to get 200 done a year) and actually go back to enjoying making Christmas cards. It was super fun, so thanks Charys!

I threw up this morning- which I haven't done in months and months (I'm a night puker typically and haven't done that in probably 3-4 months either). I slept from 12:30-7am so I'm not short on sleep by much. I should have eaten enough calories yesterday (tea, 1 piece toast, chili, 32 oz water, 1/2 apple, 20 oz water, 2 pieces chicken (breast and thigh), 4 potato wedges, lettuce, 1/2 apple, 20 oz water, 2 twizzlers, Root Beer). I don't get it. My stomach still feels off after eating too. I'm praying it's nothing because I've been in an ER one pregnancy and hospitalized another pregnancy for stomach ailments at 26-28 weeks.

Gwen ~ I hope you are feeling better soon.

michelle ~ Where do you find your religious stamps? My scrap store only has the Merry Christmas, Tis the season etc.

AFM, DH is gone, he'll be back in a bit to shower, eat something again and then leave for football. Then I won't see him again until tomorrow morning. So I'm gonna hold off on scrapping just yet.

I woke up this morning to fantastic temps. I'm going to open the windows today and have DH put on a fire (maybe). It is about 60 outside and a little windy. It's only going to be like that for the weekend then back up to mid 80s next week.

Good morning girls! i thought I'd stop here first before looking over any threads. I can't wait to see the cards and layouts. LOL, you're too sweet Michelle...."zen Charys mode":ROFL: aka, "the crazy, obsessive card making lady". Atleast you guys GET me...so many of my IRL friends think I don't have a life and it's wierd. lol. I didn't scrap at all last night. Sad But I did get some pics printed, so hopefully I can today. We rented The Proposal, and I could barely stay awake for that. It was really cute though! Smile

"Gigi" is coming by the house in less than 30 minutes to pick Kayson and I up. we are driving to Katemcy (about 45 minutes away) to a pumpkin patch to let Kayson and Rori (I think you remember her in some of my layouts) pick out pumpkins and take pictures. We will stop for lunch afterwards and hopefully I'll be back by 1pm. I told Trudi (gigi) that I had a "very important scrap day planned". Then we have been invited to some friends for dinner tonight at 6:30pm. does this sound awful or what: I know it's sweet and all but not on my scrap day!! but we will go anyways. lol.

Kebrina, sorry I meant wedding!! my head was in a work fog earlier and I was thinking of the baby shower I'm going to miss today, because I want to scrap. ROFL

Gwen, NO you can't be sick today!! I demand the sore throat to leave at once. Biggrin i'll post the recipe in a little bit. it's super simple! My favorite kind! i'm going to check out your recipe in a bit too. I love trying new recipes.

Karen, did you already mail the cards? If not, we'd still love to see them! I love your style because they are always so personalized.

ok, off to look at the challenge threads! It's like savouring dessert until the end of the meal. I've made myself get ready this morning and wait. now I have my one-cup-a-day allowable cup of coffee to enjoy them with this morning.

I have such a cute and sweet husband. I woke him up this morning so I could get the bulletin copied, get our Angel Food order and get to the post office to see if our NetFlix movie was in. He says "Okay, great. When do you have to leave for your crop?"

"Honey. I went to my crop yesterday."
"Yes but it's all weekend. It says so on the calendar and I want you to enjoy yourself"
"Oh! Today is the VIRTUAL crop. That means that yes, I want to make more cards today, but I don't leave home to do it. It's with my invisible friends"
"You're home today?"
"Yes... which is good because I'll need a nap with puking this morning. That's why I'm trying to get all the other work done now, so I can nap and then make cards this afternoon guilt free for a bit. You'll be able to do your sermon at your normal time because I'll stop after supper and get the kids ready for bed."
"Yay! You're home! That's GREAT! You're going to have so much fun making cards today... but you're HOME!"

Michelle - your husband is so cute! I hate that you got sick this morning, I really hope it's nothing and that your belly is feeling back to normal.

Speaking of sick, I heard back from the woman whose newborn I'm supposed to photograph. She saw on Facebook that I'm not feeling great, and wants to make sure I'm totally healthy before I take the pictures. I'm with her, I need to be okay to do it. I just hate the timing of this sore throat. I'm almost positive it's allergies, but this happens to me every year at this time and it turns into a sinus infection. I'm thinking if I still feel this way on Monday, I'll get to my doctor for an Rx and we'll see about doing the pictures on Thursday (as right now we're scheduled for Tuesday if I'm well).

Charys - can't wait to see pumpkin pictures!!!

Kebrina - sounds like beautiful weather where you are. It's in the 40s and raining here, miserable. And today is day 3 of this crappy weather.

I hope to crop soon ...

Michelle ~ That is a cute story.

Charys ~ enjoy the pumpkin patch...I wish we had actual pumpkin patches around here. All we have are church lawns or corner of the parking lot with pumpkins layed out. Sad Not to mention this is the first weekend with temps in the mid 60s.

Well DH is gone for football and I just finished the no people or pets challenge but my page feels boring. I think I like making cards way more than LOs. Smaller space. Now I'm going to go work on the Scraplift Charys challenge. And I think I'm going to make another gift set of cards today too. By the time I finish those it will be about time to head to work.

Afternoon y'all! I've got to finish my work for Sunday before I can get to scrapping. I'm trying, but keep getting distracted.

Our power stayed on yesterday. We didn't get much more snow last night which was good. But I don't know if our grocery store is open today or not (it was closed all day yesterday with the power out), but I need a few essentials for our house!

I picked out pics for a LO and then stalled out on it. Sad

Mish -- LOVE all the cards you did! Seems like it was a great night!

Charys -- hope you have fun at the pumpkin patch!

Gwen -- hope you feel better!

Kebrina -- sounds like you've had a really productive start to your day!

Thanks Gwen. My stomach still hurts, but I've not had the urge to puke again. Maybe my stomach was too empty for my second to last antibiotic. (I am coming off a sinus infection). Eh, any excuse to nap for me is a good excuse. Wink I've been able to get the household work done too so there's that. I've got this weird manic feeling lately. I'm tired and yet wired. It's so odd.

I found some pumpkins for $2.50 yesterday at a self-serve stand. I'm stoked. They're good size and the cheapest I've seen ANYWHERE. Everywhere is $3.50 the cheapest this year and those are small ones. Ugh! I need to go out next Wednesday and get some. (I'm waiting until Wednesday to make sure hubby and son get to go to the pumpkin patch on Tuesday and I only need 3 pumpkins instead of 5...)

Kebrina- I'm glad you're getting some scrapping done before work.

Good afternoon ladies!! I'm checking in... i didn't do any scrapping last night. Yesterday I woke up with a sore throat, then it got worse by the afternoon, and then I got the chills, and then a big ole headache. So needless to say I ended up going to bed at 8:00 last night and woke up at 8 this morning. I'm feeling better this morning, but I still have a sore throat. I hope it doesn't turn into something else!! Brandon has a "wet cough" so I'm not sure what means... it looks like i really may be calling in sick on Monday! (which is what I joked about a few weeks ago!) Lol

I hope to get some scrapping done now since the kids are napping.... can't wait to see what everyone is doing. Wink

Hello all! I am going to try to get some stuff done now, but I am feeling kind of down. DH and I are having "a bad day" Thank goodness this is unusual for us. Ok, Cameron is asleep and Heidi is playing, but I am going to get to work. Sorry to hear some of you are under the weather. Feel better soon!

I got the room inspiration challenge done this morning and I REALLY like the page! Mostly I have been putting finishing touches on some of my older pages. Lots of them needed titles or something and now that I have the cricut I have finally put them on;) So although not a lot of new pages I still feel like I have accomplished some things.
I don't feel like I slept so great last night so I am hoping to nap when the kids do. Of course I am hoping for more scrapping in there somewhere too.

Well I finished my scraplift Charys challenge and I've finished the gift for someone else challenge and started working on the scraplift challenge. I just need to upload the pics and post them.

I think I'm done scrapping for the day though. I started my Lupron yesterday and both yesterday and today I've had horrible headaches. So I'm going to relax before I need to go to work at 430. If the headache goes away I think I'll finish the last project I was working on.

Question: Has anyone Stamped on Vellum? How long do you have to wait for the ink to dry or does it ever dry?
