Update for November ATC's

Hi everyone! Ok I've been so darn busy it's been crazy! I really hate moving and today we are finally going to start moving our stuff to the new place! I'm not even finished packing either. Anyhow, for the November ATC's can everyone please send them to the same address for now and I will update you for December's. Also I was wondering if anyone would like to take over the ATC club starting in January. If you are interested please let me know so we can arrange this ASAP. As all of you know I'm expecting my second child and I'm sure I'll be very busy with two babies to take care of so I want to make sure I find someone to take over so I won't be so stressed. Also I found out the other day that we are expecting a girl and I am so excited! I've also been feeling so much better, a little sick now and then but everything is just great. Oh I almost forgot, I will be sending out the October ATC's as soon as I can. So sorry they are so late!

Important ATC club info

Hi everyone! I just wanted to go over a few things since we have quite a bit of new members in the club.

1) Please do not send machine printed postage, like I said that postage is only good if mailed on the date printed. If you sent machine printed postage for October please re-send stamps and I will mail back the label so you can be refunded. I've been getting a lot of these, and I've been paying for the postage but it's really starting to add up.

2) Starting as soon as you can, could everyone please send a return label or piece of paper with your return address with you ATC's each month. This will save me a lot of time from having to hand write everyone's address and I would really be grateful.

Well that's all I needed to go over, please make sure to check back at my blog at least once a month for new updates. Also if you want to become a member you can see my post on the ATC club details. Thanks everyone and have a spooktacular Halloween!!

I will be MIA for a bit

As most of you already know, I am in the middle of a move and will most likely not have time or even access to my computer for awhile. So, everyone will still send ATC'c to the same address untill further notice. Please don't send anything after November first, I will update you with the new address sometime after that. If anyone has any questions please ask within the next couple of days so that I may answer them, otherwise please hold off or don't expect an answer for awhile. Thanks everyone! Have a happy Halloween if I don't log in before then!

Just some stuff

Ok so everyone should have or should be getting their ATC's very soon, I'm hearing from a few people that they haven't gotten theirs yet so I'm hoping it's not because I used a mail center instead of the post office this time. I think I'll stick to the post office from now on because now I'm a little worried. Also, I held the box swap boxes a little longer than I had hoped because we are moving and I had to get rid of a lot of scrapbooking stuff. In other words I wanted to slip more stuff in your boxes and kill two birds with one stone. So, I will finally be sending the boxes out tmw!! Hope you all enjoy your semi new goodies!
The Halloween layout contest seems to be a hit, I've gotten quite a few pics sent to me already and they all look so awesome it's going to be hard to pick a winner! Good thing you guys are in charge of that!! As for a new video, things are so crazy now that we are moving I don't know when I'll be posting one but hoping it will be next wednesday!! Also I'm feeling so much better now, and I think I should be back to my old self very very soon! Hope you all have a wonderful week!!

There are also a lot of new members again!! I still haven't gotten everyone's boxes in for the swap so if your's is going to be late let me know so I can hold off before swaping everything. Well that's all for today everyone take care!!

Pocket Album Video

Hi everyone! I finally forced myself to make a video of the pocket album I promised! I hope you all like it! It's uploading to youtube right now!

Saturday, September 20, 2008

I spoke too soon!

Well I had one good day! I really can't wait to feel better, I'm itching to scrap!! I haven't been spending much time on the computer, but the ATC'c for September are rolling in and man you guys are so talented. Everyone definitely kicked it up a notch and they all are so unique. Also I'm hoping to send out the box swaps on the 30th, so you still have time to get one in! I'm not doing a video because I'm just so icky feeling. So I'm just going to sort everything and make sure everyone gets some goodies. I hope you all have a wonderful weekend, oh and Happy Birthday to me!! Ha ha needless to say I won't have a birthday album to do because I was so sick today!! I had a good time though!

Doing better

Hi everyone! So today I don't feel as bad as I have been, I wanted to post a video but I had to catch up on some house work. I'm so glad, cause it has been such a stressful week with all the post office drama! I'm starting to hate the U.S. postal service lol, but I have no choice but to use them!! I made some bread today that turned out pretty good. I haven't cooked in so long I had to do something nice for my hubby. If I'm feeling this well tmw I'm going to post that video I promised, so keep your finger crossed. Anyhow have an awesome day everyone!

Important postage information for your ATC's

Hi everyone! Ok so I had a few more problems with postage and just wanted to go over some things.

Postage that is not accepted:

prepaid machine print postage
postage other than US postage
postage covered with tape


Acceptable postage:

US Stamps

You may also send $1.50 in cash if you can not get US postage.


Thanks guys! I hope this isn't too difficult for you!

Saturday, September 13, 2008

I feel so dumb!!

So, today I checked the mail and found a ton of the ATC's that I had mailed out! Turns out that some of the stamps I used were from Canada, and you can only use them when sending to Canada. I had no idea, they were just cute little orange and yellow flowers that said 71 cents. I didn't notice that in tiny tiny writing it said Canada. So I had to replace the stamps and send them back out. Needless to say if you don't get your package soon you know why. I'm so sorry it's all my fault. In the future I will make sure to look closely at all the stamps you guys send me! I think those of you who live in Canada will be getting your on time though lol. So sorry guys I feel so dumb!!

Wednesday, September 10, 2008

ATC's are going out!

Ok! Tmw morning I am finally mailing out the atc's. I finally got the last package yesterday! From now on, I will not be accepting ATC's any later than the 30th of each month, I let some new members slide in August since we had a bunch of newbies. So please try to meet the deadline so all of our wonderful artists can have their little packages of joy in a timely manner! I must say you guys were worth the wait though! Also I'm not sure when I will be up for posting a video, but I think it will be soon. The next video I'm posting is going to be a how to on the little pocket album everyone has been begging for! That was the pic I had at the bottom of my blog. So, I hope you all have a great week and enjoy the ATC's!!

Saturday, September 6, 2008

Real Quick!

Hi everyone! I just wanted to let everyone know that you will still be sending your box swaps and your ATC's to the same address! Also if you left a comment in my chat box inquiring about the ATC club, please email me for details marion@apieceofcraft.com. Also I wish I could respond to everyone's emails, but I've been getting sicker and have not had a chance. I appreciate everyone's support, it means so much to me, but please don't feel bad if I don't reply to emails at this time. It's a little hard to do anything but lay in bed right now. I will post whenever I can, so sorry I haven't been well enough to post more videos. Hopefully this will all be better soon!

Tuesday, September 2, 2008

MOOOVE IT!!

Ok so on top of being really sick and busy trying to get the ATC'c and box swap stuff organized, my hubby decides it's time to buy a new house! All within a matter of two days we got our loan, found our house, and placed our bid!! So crazy, but we're very excited! It's going to be perfect for the new baby. If all goes well we may be moving in by the end of the month!! So we are definitely praying that our offer is accepted, and that everything goes smoothly. Everything seems to be coming together, I was so sad we had to cancel our trip to Texas, but it turns out if we had gone we wouldn't have been able to bid on this house. The house is amazing, it needs fixing up, but that's why we love it because we get to remodel with an awesome deal on the house. Oh and it has lots of big trees which I really love!! So I hope you have the time to wish us luck and say a little prayer. I know you will anyway because you all are so kind to me already. I also wanted to offer my prayers to any or all of you, so please let me know if there is anything I can do. I'm so thankful for all of you, and most of you really don't know me. I feel so blessed. Well that's all for now, hope to post another video soon!!

You guys are awesome!

Thank you soo much everyone for all the support! I'm still feeling horrible, otherwise I would be making videos. As soon as I'm better and able I will get back on the horse. Atc cards will be sent out a little late because I had to wait for some slackers, lol jk guys! We had a few members join late in the game, so I'm sure we'll have sent out by the 6th. Sorry for the delay!! Also I'm working on having someone else come and do a few videos for me so that you guys don't get bored, hopefully it will work out!!

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

Ok eww

Ok so obveously I was messing around with my blog and totally screwed it up! I will fix that later! As far as being sick, sadly it's gotten worse and yes I have Hyperemesis Gravidarum again!! I went to the doctor today and got some drugs that are $150.00 for just ten tabs that I have to take 3 times a day!! Holy cow! Anyhow I don't expect them to work because we tried them last time and it was disappointing. So if they aren't helping out by Friday, I'm going to get the pump and catheter put in again! Yaye so fun! Right before my trip to Texas too!! The only thing that really blows is that I'm leaving to Texas on Tuesday and will have to change the catheter site myself because my home nurse will not be able to go there obviously.
It's ok though, because in less than 8 months I will have a beautiful baby girl in my arms! It better be a girl after all this torture lol. I'll be happy with another boy too though. Thank you everyone for all your warm wishes and prayers, I really needed them. I'm so grateful you are all there for me!

Monday, August 25, 2008

I've been sick!

Hi guys! I've been really sick the last couple of days, so I haven't been able to do anything! Right now it's not so bad, but I'm hoping it doesn't get worse or turn out to be HG again. If it does, chances are I won't be doing much of anything for at least two months. Last time I had to have a catheter and IV put in and had to have a home nurse. If that happens, I may be able to do some stuff then. They can't do that until I'm about 8-9 weeks though, so it still will be awhile. Wish me luck!! I'll do my best to update you!!

Saturday, August 23, 2008

I'm a Fiskarteer!

Hi everyone! I became a Fiskarteer yesterday which I think will be a lot of fun! So ya just might see me using a lot more Fiskars products on my videos. Also If you're a Fiskarteer as well, please leave a comment and say hello, I would love to meet ya! I may post a video today if I have time but I'm not sure I will.

You guys are getting spoiled, two videos in one day!

The marathon continues

I'm just waiting for my one hour photos, then I will be working on some more 12x12 pages! I've gotten requests for 2 page layouts, but I really don't do that anymore because I really like to junk my pages up and by the time I get to the second page I'm bored and want to start somethin else. Plus, I don't put my pages in an album, they get framed and or put up on my wall. I will one day, maybe for Christmas since I know I will take lots of pictures then!

I just hope I don't have Hyperemesis Gravidarum again. If I do, that means I'll probly be hospitalized again for half my pregnancy. Needless to say I probly won't be making any videos then. I'm hoping and praying that doesn't happen though. Until that happens I'll do my best to load up on videos for ya!

let's have an online garage sale!

So I've been going through my scrap room all week trying to organize and design it a little better. Needless to say I have a lot of stuff I would like to get rid of! I was visiting a fellow blogger and she had an online garage sale which I though was really neat! So, let's all pick a day to post picks of our un-wanted treasures and have a garage sale! Only maybe we should call it a blog sale! We should probably lay down some rules though, and I think one should be that you have to have a paypal account, for our safety and safety of those who purchase from us, and items must shipped within two days of received payment. Let me know what you guys think!

Saturday, August 2, 2008

What should my next video be?

Hi everyone! Ok so now I want to hear from you guys! I want to know what you would like my next video to be about. I am making my August list of videos, so if you give me some good requests I am sure you will see a video on it this month! I've been re-arranging my scrap room, so I'll probly post my next video on Monday or so. Thanks everyone have a great week!

My latest videos

Hey guys! SO my last 3 videos on the starting a mini album tutorials are extremely poor quality. I used a new program that was supposed to be better but turned out looking terrible. So, please bear with me as I am on the hunt for a much better program. Any suggestions?

Halloween Album

So I've been working on a mini Halloween album, and I was excited at first but now I'm losing the excitement! I hate when that happens because then I end up trashing the idea when it's almost finished. I started the video, but I'm just not happy with how it's turning out. I think I'm going to work on another album lol. I'll come back to it later when I feel like it. I'll try to get another video up tonight though.

Can I break a promise? Ok, so I promised I would post another video tonight but I am so lazy! Today I went to Turlock to set up a booth for OFTM at a little home shopping event thing, and it actually wore me out. I had to lug two super heavy boxes up a huge flight of stairs, my wrist was killing me eeek! Yes I have wrist problems bad!! Ouch! Anyhow, it was fun, I introduced some cute little old ladies to Grungeboard and they actually made some pretty cute tags! Ok well maybe only one did lol. Anyhow I got to exercise my sales skills a bit! Ok enough of that, yes, yes, yes, I will post a new video tonight even though I don't want to. See how much I love you! Oh and guess what! Can you say, "How to"? Yup it's going to be a "How to" segment! Stay tunned to see what it's about! Happy Scrapin!

So I'm excited about these new photo boxes I've been making. They are a ton of fun and you can find my videos on youtube if you just search "Scrapbooking with Marion". I just posted a new video of me working on one of the photo boxes I'm talking about. My Class is coming up on the 26th and it's going to be so much fun I can't wait! I love Christmas, so celebrating twice in one year is alright! I hope you sign up and have a great day!

This is the new blog!

Hi everyone! Welcome to my new blog! I decided to take the old one off the original website because it was way overloaded and I wanted everyone to be able to comment and ask questions. So please feel free to comment or ask anything you'ld like!

Video Tutorials

Hi everyone! I just posted 3 new videos last night so I hope you enjoy them. One of the questions I've been getting a lot of lately is when I'm going to be posting tutorials. I will be posting technique tutorials and tips, however I will not be teaching how to make my specialty mini albums and such. The reason is that I will be teaching these classes at Oh For the Memories in Modesto CA.
If you are not from around here and would like a design guide and kit for the classes please let me know and I will make arrangements to have one sent to you. Kit prices vary but are very reasonable! Another question was what kind of ink I use all the time in my videos for the edges of paper. The ink is Tim Holtz distress ink. It is available at OFTM as well. Thanks guys hope ya read tomorrow!
