  1. Hi Marilyn, How are you doing?

  2. Hi everyone! I hope you and your families are all doing well and are staying safe during these difficult times. I was out on Amazon today and noticed that PSE 2020 for both PC/MAC is on sale today only for $59. Hang in there and remember we're in this together... Keeping you all my prayers!

      Hi Andrea, Mikelle, Marilynn and Diane! Thank you so much for your well wishes… So far everything is going okay at home and we are all adjusting to the mandatory stay in place. My spouse is a teacher so everything is being done through Google Classroom. Today we found out that the principal has lost six friends to the virus and more cases are now being reported in Camden County, New Jersey. My spouse teaches at Cherry Hill High School West. We were informed today that a parent from Cherry Hill High School East tested positive and had attended the West school play during the time she was considered contagious. Neither my spouse or I attended the play but so many students did. We will now just wait and see how many individuals will be affected. I hope you, your family and friends are doing well and staying safe. Thanks again and take care of yourselves!
      Hugs, Linda

      This is all so scary;  all we can do is our best to keep safe...   So sorry to hear that Linda...   Take care..

      Oh Linda, How kind of you  to wish us all well, that goes right back to you. How sad so many people near you are affected. This is just such a terrible thing to happen. Now the US has more cases than anywhere else! How could that happen with all the precautions we have taken...good thing we are doing the things we are doing to stay healthy.

      Stay in stay safe and keep in touch.

  3. I had planned on submitting some layouts for SG's 15th Anniversary but have run into a problem. After exiting last Saturday's chat, I started to work on a layout and my PSE 2019 crashed! To make a long story short I have spent a total of 72 hours with Adobe, Microsoft Windows and HP over the last 10 days trying to fix the problem. Apparently all three had done updates that seem to be conflicting with each other! I am hopeful that things will be resolved soon and I'll get my laptop back. I pray this doesn't happen to anybody else!

      Wow what a huge problem updates can be..I sure hope they fix it quickly for you but at  least you have your snail computer backup.

      Good morning, I thought I had a great idea during the night… Tried to download the free trial for PSE 2020 but this computer is too old and out of date :monstercry:
      Thanks again and I hope you all have a great day!

  4. With all the ads in my local papers promoting Christmas in July sales it made me think about Christmas projects to give as gifts. My 91-year-old aunt is the last surviving member of my mom's family. I have three grand nephews and one grand niece. I would like to do a calendar for the year 2020 depicting our family (including my parents and grandparents) so my grand nephews  and grandniece could learn a little bit about our family each month. So here's my question to our fabulous designers... Are any of you planning on creating a calendar package for the year 2020? Has anybody else created a genealogy type calendar before? If so, any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much and have a great day!

      Good morning Anne-Marie, thank you so much for the link to the calendars. Are they 8.5 x 11? I was thinking of using two 8.5 x 11 pages... The bottom half would of course be the dates and I was going to use the top half for photos and journaling. I also thought I would include a section that would be like a Who's Who in the family.
      I really do appreciate you taking the time to share that link with me… I plan on purchasing this item so I have something to work with.
      Thank you again and have a great day! Hugs, Linda

      Hi Marilyn, these are great questions and I have to chuckle because I was just discussing my printing options the other night. I'm actually doing a cost analysis to see if it would be cheaper to let Staples print my pages since I have a discount for photocopying. The only problem is that they won't use double-sided heavyweight photo paper. I have two binding machines (one for all the different sizes of the spiral plastic combs and one for all the different types of wire combs) so I plan on binding them here at home. I can print them at home because I actually have the double-sided heavyweight photo paper on hand. It's just a matter of how much ink I will use to print the calendars. It looks like I would need to print 15 copies at roughly 30 pages each. I do have a new printer that was awesome with ink usage when I printed the tickets for the Junior Formal and the new brochure for my spouse's Temple. I figure I can complete the calendar and print one copy and see how much ink it took.

      I appreciate you taking the time and offering your suggestions… It definitely helps to have you, Anne-Marie, Andrea and others providing me with information, ideas and support! I really don't think you all understand how much I appreciate your help...

      Thank you again and have a great day! Hugs, Linda

      Awwww...  It’s a pleasure working with you Linda and that’s what we do here at SG as you know!   That’s great idea that you have the ability to print yourself at home, I’ve done binding but not something that large.    Have you taken a look in the Calendar section in the Boutique?   Brandy Mury used to do one each year and if you like her blended tops, you can always switch out the bottoms for the correct dates.   All you need to do is find a month with the starting date on the right day of the week and use that one.  For instance for July now, you’d find a month that started the 1st on a Monday, ending with the 31st on a Thursday.   Sometimes you might have to erase or add a date at the end of the month, but it’s a fairly easy way to make older calendars work for the year you are using.   HERE’S Brandy’s 2018 calendar;  you can find others HERE to look through, too.   The one Anne Marie shares has lots of possibilities!  Let me know if this doesn’t make sense, I LOVE your idea and what a special gift it will be.  :) Please be sure to post your pages so we can see!

  5. Good morning, Today is starting out to be a beautiful day here at the Jersey Shore! I started the day by watching the sunrise at point Pleasant Beach. As some of you know, I'm a quadriplegic so getting to the beach at sunrise is extremely difficult. I thought I would share with you the link for the live beach cam in case anybody is interested in watching a sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean. I hope you all have a great day!

    For those of you who might enjoy Penguins, there is a link on the beach cam page for a live feed to the Penguins at the Jenkinson aquarium.

      Hi Marilyn, it really is a great way to enjoy the beach… Perhaps someone in the Midwest who has never seen a sunrise over the ocean might want to wake up early one morning and take a peek. I actually can't wait for the next full moon… Have a great day :dancing-smilie:

    3. Boatlady

      Such a pretty beach. New Jersey has lots of beach!!!!! I am so glad you got to see the sunrise on the ocean, it is always so beautiful and amazing to watch. Sunset's over the water are amazing too. Thanks for sharing your webcam links. Have a great day.

      Hi Debby, you are certainly correct with regards to New Jersey beaches :happy-sun:. I love watching the sunrise when I go out on the early morning fishing boat… Nothing like watching the sun come up and having the Dolphins swim along the boat… Life is good!
      I'm so glad to hear you had a great time on your cruise to Cuba. I can't wait to check out the gallery for your layouts with your photos from Cuba.
      I hope all is well with you… Have a great evening!
      Hugs, Linda

  6. Good morning, I have a general question about layouts, challenges and requirements since I am just starting to create and post. So, when asked for a certain number of papers, embellishments, etc... An item cannot be duplicated and counted... Is this correct? Thank you for all the help you continue to provide me and other new scrappers! SG rocks!!

      Hi Linda!  We had a nice day in West Orange, too; my car registered over 50º at one point!   You can ask on the challenge thread, but most likely you should use 5 different papers for fun and the challenge! Some ideas are you can cut up one paper and use strips on your page, or even use one as a border around the layout.  Or you can even clip one to a frame, the possibilities are endless!   :D 

    3. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      Marilyn cleared it up I think and like she said there  are no scrapping police so not to worry. You could use a paper twice and adjust the hue or saturation a little on one and that would work too.

      I see you are from Tom's River our last boat was a Mainship and they used to make them there. We actually went there a few times on our boat years ago, we always had fun there.

      I duplicate and consider it one!!  So I could have 4 copies of one flower and just count it as one.  Again, no scrapping police here.  Have fun and enjoy.  :D 

  7. Good morning, I'm not sure this is the right spot on the forum page to post this question… But if I am incorrect I apologize to you all. My question is… as some of you know I am a quadriplegic which means I don't have use of my hands... So I don't own a cell phone. My aunt is 91 years old and lives in Oriental, NC. Lately she has been saying that she wants to see me while we talk on the telephone. I know I could use Skype with my PC and I had bought her a laptop in July but to be honest I have noticed that she is becoming more forgetful and don't think the laptop will be a good solution for her. I am looking for suggestions on what I could purchase that would enable my aunt and I to converse face-to-face. Thank you so much!

      Hi, thank you very much... I'll check and see what type of phone my aunt has and see if we can use Skype.:rolleyes:

      Hi Linda, do you have an iPad or iPod or any Apple device or does she?   Facetime is easy and if you both have one and you initiated the call, all she’d have to do is answer.   I just did this Sunday with no issues.    But, you can only use with Apple products.  I used to use Skype from my Macbook with no issues too.

      Good morning, originally from Brick but now live in Toms River... Point Pleasant is my home beach and I have spent many trips through the canal to go fishing. 

  9. Good afternoon, I have a quick question...I'm scrapping at the 8.5x11 size because my family finds that size easier to keep and store. My question is does a LO have to be a 12x12 in order to post it to the Gallery? Thank you for any assistance you can provide me. Have a great afternoon!

      Hi Linda. I scrap in International Paper size A4 for the same reason. Posting to the gallery is no problem.

      I tend to use 12 x 12,  I tend to use  various sizes for my personal use depending on what I want to use it for. I also use smaller sizes for when I making cards and I have always been able to post without any probs.

  10. Good evening, I was backing up some of my older folders and came across the suggested organization list that Ro had given to anyone who was interested in it. I remember a couple weeks ago someone (sorry I don't remember who it was) was asking if anyone remembered how the organization of supplies was written. If anybody is interested, please let me know. Have great evening! :D

      I often get a message like that so just do the scan & fix. As yet there has never been any damaged files. It usually only does that when I disconnect the EHD without going through the channels.
