2 more weeks!

Okay, just two more weeks and I should be better! I can't wait! Halloween is coming I am planning on having a lot of fun with that. Also fall is my favorite season so I should be taking family pics once all the leaves start turning and falling. I've gotten so many ATC's in, and they are all so wonderful. 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!!

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!

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!!

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!!

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!

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!!
