  1. Just looked at the Carol W Designs Garage Sale newsletter and then went to the sale link. So many of my favorites from her are leaving the store!¬†ūüė≤¬†Better get 'em while you can!

      Yep, I got those I didn't already have or added to some sets I did have! Didn't have to spend alot as I already had a good portion of them:D

      I got some fabulous goodies!

  2. A BIG HINT was dropped today in the Monthly Game thread to help you with your Fill In The Blank lists! Play today for chances to win gift cards!

  3. Just a reminder that Fill In The Blank Game is ongoing for July. Here's a hint: finishing the word list is easy if you peruse the layouts submitted in the Hodge Podge gallery.

  4. Caption that Photo Game is live for Sale-A-Bration Week. This is the last game for the event!

  5. Got my 4th Family Cookbook sent off to the printer yesterday. Four cookbooks in seven months. Just one more to do this year. Yippee!

      Where do you print your cookbooks??? This idea is amazing and I would love to do one. Is is spiral bound? That's what I would love LOL But please..... tell the newbie all my wise one..... where? What size? ūüėÄ

      @Tracy I print them at Mixbook because they have so many pages. Glossy hard cover, 8.5x8.5 size. They combine recipes, stories, family photos and food photos. Go to my personal gallery to see some sample pages. They are wedding gift keepsakes.

      This sounds so fun! Thank you!!!! So many ideas and recipes running through my mind.  Off to check your gallery. Thank you!

  6. Midday Challenge for iNSD has just been posted: Documenting Life.

  7. Turns out it was an F1 tornado that touched down in our town and the National Weather Service posted the stats. Yep, our house was on the direct path. The sound of chainsaws has been nonstop since Tuesday.

      That sounds so scary. What a blessing that you weren't hurt and your house in intact.

      I know how thankful you are, but that must have been a stressful & scary night - glad you are there to hear chainsaws!! Glad you're OK!

      So sorry to hear you are dealing with a catastrophe, and so glad you are okay, stay safe my dear. Keeping you in my thoughts and prayers

  8. This is a reminder that Project Cozy Christmas BINGO can be played through December 31, so there are still five more days to get your BINGO on!

      Thanks!   I'm still plugging along trying to finish my next/non-traditional Bingo but life and Holidays keep getting in the way.

      Christmas mayhem ends today (I hope). Plan to get down to some serious scrapping after, although feeling pretty exhausted at this moment.

    4. MariJ

      MariJ

      I finished my non-traditional bingo before the deadline!

  9. Oh, no! The cookbook I created and ordered for my nephew's wedding came today but the box was opened and empty with a "damaged" notice from the post office.

      Oh no! Just what you need, after all the work you put into it. If you haven't done it already, be sure to photograph the damage and send the info to the book publisher (so hopefully, they will package things more safely) as well as to the Post Office. 

    3. Celestine

      Celestine

      Photos of the damaged box were sent, along with the post office notices and Mixbook will investigate. I just hope it gets returned to them since there was a lot of personal info in this book, including some addresses and full names of many, many living and dead family members. It was intended as a heritage keepsake, so there is a lot of info. I hate that it is floating around out there somewhere.

    4. MariJ

      MariJ

      Oh NOoooooo..  I'm so happy that at least you will get those precious cookbooks in time but my goodness, how odd!  And how distressing to think of your information floating around.   I hope it all gets sorted out ok.  Good luck and please let us know.

  10. BINGO is live for Project Cozy Christmas. Come on over in the Events tab to find us this month!

    1. Amy D

      Amy D

      Wow!! This is going to be one busy month! So glad I can sit in front of my computer all day - WiFi don't fail me now!!¬†ūü§£

    2. GraceJ

      GraceJ

      Wow! super fun!
      Happy December my dear!

  11. The Word Scramble Game for Anniversary Week is now live!

      That should be in your notification settings.  

    3. April Showers

      April Showers

      I've gone through all the settings on the back end of the forum several times and you should be getting notifications based on your settings.  If there is anyone else not getting the notifications - just for the reactions, it might help me pinpoint the problem.

    4. A-M

      A-M

      @April Showers  I have also never received notifications as Celeste as stated. When Marilyn shared in the forum her set up in setttings, mine is just the same. 

  13. The Two-Color Chain Challenge is now posted for Anniversary Week!

    1. GraceJ

      GraceJ

      Thank you so much my dear ‚̧ԳŹ

  14. So many incredible items going on Last Chance Sale! I had oodles of them on my wish list!

    1. GraceJ

      GraceJ

      So many gorgeous stuff, and the last chance to grab them

  15. Oh, the computer woes never end. Today Google Chrome won't connect due to configuration problems. It is now 8 weeks that I have been dealing with these issues. ?

      Two Geek Squad chats and 3 hours later and things seem fixed. Keeping my fingers crossed!

    3. MariJ

      MariJ

      Oh no - I'm so sorry to hear that but glad it's fixed.  But, what a disruption, it's times like this you know how much you use and need a computer in today's world!

    4. mimes1

      mimes1

      Ugh, Hopefully it will stay fixed!!

  16. It has taken 5 weeks, but I think I am finally up and running with my new computer setup. :mad-at-computer:

      I hope you got his phone number and email address, LOL. Seriously, I'm glad it's running. It should have been easier than that, I'm guessing you'd agree. 

    3. MariJ

      MariJ

      Oh, my goodness, you must be thrilled.  I'm so glad you are on track noe and kinda annoying (ya' think?) that a tech buy messed it up!   ?

    4. DixieLee

      DixieLee

      I am very thrilled for you!! I know the feeling- I got to messed up last winter I really didn't even try to make LOs- it was just way too hard. Bless you with loads of fun ahead!!!

       

  17. Getting a new computer setup is never without its glitches. And I have had some major ones. And still more to sort out. Ugh.

      A new computer is always a hassle. I feel your pain.

      I just got a new computer with Windows 11. Nothing works like 10. Biting my nails.
      Nothing works period. Will only accept PSE 22.

    3. beatricemi

      beatricemi

      Ugh- what a nightmare. I am so worried I will accidentally upgrade to windows 11. I use folders for all my kits and rename the kit preview  FOLDER  so it will appear as a picture. I understand that feature is no longer available. I didn't know about PSE. Good grief microsoft. What are you doing? So sorry Celestine. I hope you get it sorted out.

    4. Boatlady

      Good luck, it will work out...funny we all dread new stuff.

       

  18. Just a reminder there are a few more hours to finish up one or more Bingos in the Monthly Challenge Game. You have until midnight EDT on June 30!

  19. Just a reminder that in the midst of all the Sale-A-Brating, there is still enough time to yell out "Bingo!" over in the Monthly Game thread! And chances for prizes!

    1. MariJ

      MariJ

       I have traditional bingo (& yelled out!) and I'm one short of a non-traditional, but Sale-A-Bration is taking up too much time!  

    2. MariJ

      MariJ

      I did it!  I finished non-traditional Bingo too.  I am just about all scrapped out.   :whew:

  20. Just a reminder to head over to the Sale-A-Bration Gallery on occasion to peruse all the great layouts going on for the June Bingo Game! Because the layout links are edited into already existing threads, some of these fantastic layouts are not getting the attention they deserve! 

    Feel free to join in the Bingo Game anytime this month! Great prizes to be had!

    1. MariJ

      MariJ

      And, there's been a lot of multiple CT postings so the layouts get buried off the MB.  
      Good reminder to check the Gallery, I've been trying to check the Forum thread but your way is better, thanks!

    2. GraceJ

      GraceJ

      I've been a little bit busy, but I'll try to leave some love. I'm loving the amazing take on the challenge, so many talented girls and so much inspiration.

  21. It feels so good to hit that "Submit" button on a photo book order!

      Congratulations on completing your project!

  22. The full puzzle for the Find A Word Game has been posted over in the Challenges topic! If you haven't joined us yet, squeeze in a some chances to win gift cards before Feb. 28 by posting a few layouts or personal messaging me your guesses for any of the 20 hidden bonus words. 

  23. Hi @MariJ - I was trying to send a private message, but it acts like it hasn't sent. Is your message box perhaps full?

    1. MariJ

      MariJ

      Yes!  You are correct!  So sorry, I fixed it.   

       

  24. Does it seem like May is even busier than December every year?

    1. Boatlady

      Boatlady

      Yes...it's been crazy

  25. Your comment popped up as a notification because I am online and was along the bottom of the page. However, zero comments on my LOs appear on my notifications button. Quotes from the forum appear there, but not comments on my LOs. I appear to be barred by the administrator from any sort of notification when "someone comments on something I follow," which appears to include my own layouts.

      Already done!  Hopefully she can get to the bottom of it, she normally can!   It sounds like you are probably right about the reason.   Good luck and let us know again if it’s not fixed in a bit!

      Thanks for catching this and being so prompt Marilyn!  I was out doing errands.  Hopefully, April will have answers for us!

      No problem Conda - we’re here for each other and it happened to be the time I was around!  :)
