  1. Hi everyone. Long time since I've been here. Got my two shots and had a reaction both times. My hands have been really acting up along with my knee. Don't know what to do about them, aside from a knee replacement. Ugh!

    Hope everyone is okay and enjoying the nice weather.

      It's always good to have you check in. Time sure does fly, though, doesn't it?

      I have you beat, unfortunately. Life had been SUPER hard and I literally just started scrapping again last year in November after I know 4-5 yrs of not hardly touching anything. I would buy a kit every now and then knowing I wanted to. But with work, my kids and grandkids and all their drama, (LONG STORY) I just couldn't do it. I have scrapped numerous ones though now, since picking it back up again and it makes me so happy. 

  3. Thanks for all your good wishes. Got my results back for Covid 19 today. Unfortunately, I am positive and so is my sister. We both need to stay quarantined until January 12th.

      That sucks Carol. Hope you feel better soon. 😁

  4. I hope that all my SG friends had a wonderful and safe Chanukah, Christmas and a wonderful start to 2021. I'm going to get tested for Covid 19 in the morning. My friends cleaning lady was showing symptoms and ended up testing positive and she didn't bother to tell MaryAnn or Rickey about it. They were both here for Christmas dinner. Then I started to have some symptoms a few days ago.  Won't know results for a few days. Send some prayers my way.

      So sorry Carol, I hope God protects you and the tests come back negative.

  5. I still can't change my signature. Says that it doesn't meet the guidelines. HELP!

  6. I want to change my signature, however, I forgot how to do it. Can someone point me in the right direction?

    1. Mikelle

      Mikelle

      Hi Carol, I just now changed mine too.  Go to the drop down box in the upper right that has your name in it, and choose "Account Settings."  Then in the list on the left side of your account settings page, choose "Signature."  You should then be able to delete whatever you want from your current signature and add in your new images/links.  Don't forget to click SAVE at the bottom though.  I hope this helps!  Glad you're back!  

  7. I've not done any scrapping so far this year, so I need some help on how to create a background wallpaper.

      I'm MAC as well. You can look up the size of your screen and go according to that measurement to creat or re-create the background. 
      HERE is a link on how to do that for Windows 10. I hope that helps.

      Hi Carol, We sure hope your hands will let you scrap again, too. We miss you!

  10. I remember when Pirate passed away. He was a very sweet dog and I know how much you loved him.

  11. I had to put my cat Tini to sleep Thursday. He was not doing well: not eating, incontinent, crying and not walking very well. I miss him and I was with him when they put him to sleep, so that his mommy was the last one he saw.00021030.thumb.jpg.42e9e40919298058c108075fbbe8bbd0.jpg

      Well done Carol.  I do hope your hands are not preventing you  from doing the scrapping you want to do.

      I joined in May 2008

  13. Just purchased some new product, the first in quite a while. I'm going to try and create a layout. My hands are still giving me problems, but I'm going to give it a try.  It might take me a few days, but I'll give it my best.

  16. Just a short hello to all of my friends at SG. It's been a long time since I've been on the board. I was sick for weeks with Bronchitis and I'm still feeling yucky. Hope everyone is feeling good and enjoying their summer. I hope to get some scrapping done SOON, but my mojo has left me. Hopefully she'll be back soon.

  17. Are there any special instructions on how to use the ATC Coin? Can't quite seem to make one.

    1. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      Carol here is some directions that might help. There is the link to Angies free template too. PM me if you still have trouble.

      1. Create your ATC -card or coin with your interpretation of the theme. Your original ATC file should be 3.5 inches x 2.5 inches or 1050 pixels x 750 pixels (can be portrait or landscape orientation) at 300 pixels per inch. Be sure to sign and date your. Post your ATC to the gallery HERE , as well, to share with all of our members. The " trading coins" either 2", 2 1/2" or 3 1/2" circles. Angie was kind enough to make a template set and you can find the free link here.

  18. Love the new coin atc. I've been away too long, and just found this. Hope to be able to use it soon.

  25. I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving. I spent it in the hospital, but I did have turkey for dinner. I have what they call non-alcoholic cirrhosis of the liver. They had to drain fluid out of my abdomen and send it out for testing. My oxygen level was low so I had to go on oxygen. I had so much blood work done on me I felt like a pincushion. I came home on Friday night. I'm on two different diuretics and a very low sodium diet. Crikey!

      Thanks for all your good wishes. I'm starting to feel a little better. I have an appointment with my GI this week and I hope she will have some good news for me. I've lost four pounds, which of course is all water retention.

      Well that is some  good news. I'm glad you are feeling a little better. Good luck with Dr. and keep us posted.
