  3. Sorry all that I haven't been around this week.  My dad was admitted to the emergency room on Tuesday.  So I've been dealing with that, helping take care of their dog, etc.

  4. I want to send a private message to @Celestine. My mailbox is full. I don't know how to access it to empty it. There is not an option to send Celestine a PM. I don't know how to send my Fill in the Blanks form.

      Thanks, ladies for helping Belle with her questions. I was unavailable most of the day yesterday after I posted the WWC and the July Game.

  8. My computer has broken down. Probably from all the layouts that I did in the last 2 months. I had to take it in today. That is why I was rushing to finish my bingo. The guy says he doesn't know if he can retrieve anything. I've got 2 months of SG stash that I will have to download again. 😪 Not to even mention the photos.

      Oh, no, Belle. That is tragic. Computers can be a pain in the neck sometimes.

  9. I am forever thankful I found SG and all of you! ❤️ My scrapbooks have been so private and I never share outside of the family as I dont think I know what I am doing. You have all been so wonderful encouraging me to share and then helping me make my pages so much better. When I have questions you all answer right away!! From emails answered within an hour to many questions @Celestine who answered them all and then some. @MariJ @Jane in N.Z @Boatlady @barbaraj and so many others! Your positive comments on my pages means more to me then you will ever truly know. Thank you so much for being supportive and a wonderful group! I have found my new home away From home and feel so loved! Thank you!!!!

      It is so wonderful to see your layouts and to find inspiration here at ScrapGirls. I felt so much like you just five years ago, when I found a home here with these kind ladies. We are so glad you are sharing your scrapping adventure with us.

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

      @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 is the sweetest kit, and I love that it fits so well with both contemporary and vintage images.

  12. I had a ‘first’ on Friday. I am bald, and covering my head with scarves and wigs has become a pain, and it’s hot. So I thought, this is me now, if people don’t like it or are offended by it, it’s their problem. (It’s taken me 3 years to accept this) so Friday I was in line at Costco to pick up meds, when I suddenly felt a finger rub my head. I turned to see who it was, and it was a man in his mid 70’s who said “nice, I love it” so I quickly replied, “it’s not by choice”. Isn’t that crazy?

      Well, my first thought was "Boundaries!" regarding the man who touched your head. The second was, I think he was acknowledging your bravery and embracing your "now." You go, girl!

  20. 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.

      Second tornado I've been through. My hometown was hit very hard when I was 10 years old. Half the downtown square was leveled and two ladies who lived about three blocks away were killed. Luckily this one was milder. We will certainly have to replace our roof, though.

  25. It feels like I’ve spent a month at the hospital. I’m so tired. Between my sister having emergency brain surgery, and @ broken wrist from the fall that caused the brain bleed, and my neighbor who came to my house and collapsed in my arms saying she’s I’ll and needs help. She stayed in the same hospital for 4 days. They both went home today so I can get my life back together.  Long story on my 42 year old neighbor.
