Morning all here to a new year for us Happy Birthday Rebel Stampers.
Had a great workshop Saturday I have put it in my gallery.
Another early morning for me been awake since 3 spent a hour on the phone talking to a friend who like me couldn't sleep. Have done a load of washing and that is already hung out now ready for bed  Very Happy Nothing planned for today but might see if I can get eyes tested if not it will be craft or sleep

sounds like you are not doing well with your sleeping Becky -but good to chat to your friend.
It's amazing that we will have done 5 years -still great to have this forum and friends  Very Happy
Miriam

Good evening,

Happy Anniversary to you all.

Sorry to hear about your sleeping Becky -  I hope it gets better soon.

Sorry I haven't been around - things have not been great and although I have gone back to work, I am exhausted when I get home - haven't even been able to do any crafting, apart from tinkering with Christmas card ideas!

I hope you have all had a great summer.... I will hopefully catch up over the next few days....
Jennie

I am not sure where the last week has gone either!  I am trying to catch up with lots of craft commitments as we are off to Aviemore on Thursday for our family weekend.  I am staying on for a few days and meeting two of my DT members on A Vintage Journey for some blethering and crafting which should be fun.

Sorry to hear you are not sleeping well - me neither. I seem to be awake at 5 am every morning. But I am getting lots done - as long as it doesn;t involve the heat gun and wakes Terry and Aimee!

Hope you start feeling better soon Miriam.
Beckyb

Well I slept well until Keith woke me up at 7-30 he thought it was 8-30 the car has just been picked up for it's MOT.
Good to see you Miriam I have been thinking of you hope it is not too bad at work and you are trying to take it easy.
Jennie I can't keep up with you you are always jetting off here and there Very Happy enjoy the family weekend and then your catch up with crafty friends.
Never got my eyes tested but have appt for next Monday did some shopping and brought Jasmine's birthday present so have to wrap that.

Hi everyone and Happy Anniversary!  Yayy!  Shame we didn't think to mark it in some way as in previous years.  Perhaps when we are six we can do something appropriate.

Good to see you Miriam - just take it as it comes and I hope you get back into the swing of things soon.

I do agree Vonny, it is good to have a place to get together with good friends.

Becky how awful not to be able to sleep - I seem not to be able to get enough of it.  At least you are filling your "extra" hours in a constructive way.

Jennie I'm worn out just reading what you are up to Laughing Where do you get your energy from? Wink

Not sure where the last week went - I shall have to get on with my tag and start thinking about ATCs - can hardly believe that it is September already.

Evening all.... I've been to Plymouth today so am quite tired now.

Pleased you got some sleep Becky - when I came out of hospital I couldn't sleep at all - I think my brain was too active - it drove me mad for weeks!

Need to get crafting this weekend - I am gutted I have missed the last few swaps so need to see where I am up to!
margaret rorie

Good to hear from you Miriam - such a pity that you're still not feeling 100%. Hope you are able to get back to your crafting soon. Hope you're sleeping better now Becky.

I've just been to see Gregory's Girl at the cinema - this was shown as part of this week's film festival. My friend and I really enjoyed seeing it again - we couldn't believe it was made in 1980! Where have the years gone?

Must get my tag made this evening - I do have an idea so hope it will translate onto paper!

Jenny - enjoy your holiday. It will be lovely to catch up with family and your blog friends. Margaret

Hi miriam -good to hear from you again.sorry you are not having a good time but hopefully you can get a bit of crafting done soon -I'm sure it will make things seem a little better.

The shopping centre in Luton have a competition to design a xmas gift card -tomorrow I am going to see if any of the adults I work with would like to join in. there is a prize of a £250 gift card too! Mind you they are wary of new things so they may not want to do it.
Mickie

Go for it Vonny; just think what you could achieve with £250 Cool

I've been looking through some old tag swaps (needed inspiration) and I'm wowed by the talent in this little group of ours.  Keep going ladies - to quote the song "the only way is up" Wink

Hope everyone gets a good night's sleep.  I'm all excited as of to a matinee again tomorrow but something completely different (for me that is) a song and dance extravaganza titled Puttin' on the Ritz.

Mickie x
Jennie

Just popping in to say goodbye for a few days - everything is now pretty well packed up and Aimee is off to the kennels (again!) shortly.  Looks as though it will be a calm night on the ferry  Very Happy

Enjoy the matinee Mickie - sounds just the sort of thing I would enjoy!

Enjoy the weekend everyone x
margaret rorie

Like Mickie I've been looking through my old ATCs (I always make 2 is I have one to keep). It was interesting to see the different styles and techniques. So I wondered whether we could do something retrospective to celebrate our 5th anniversary. It could be something personal so it wouldn't need to be swapped. Perhaps a mini book, or a few ATCs or a journal page. I have learnt such a lot since joining Rebel Stampers as well as enjoying your friendship over the years that I would like to document this in some way. What do the rest of you think? Margaret
vonny

Enjoy the ritz Mickie osund very lively. Makes me think of all the dancers coming on stage in 2 long lines and kicking their legs high!

Margaret that sounds like a challenge which we would keep rather than swap -tho I might not do anything without that extra impetus. but a time frame and something specific might help!

All the clients wanted to make the Xmas gift cards so there were 13 in the end! We then made simple Xmas cards with coloured in images and will finish them off with greetin peel offs at the next session (I haven't taken Xmas things in yet!) And they all enjoye it -would love for one of them to win!
Mickie

Puttin' on the Ritz was fabulous.  I had a great afternoon and both my friend and I came away quite uplifted by the sheer exuberance and joy of the production.  It was song and dance all the way and very well done.

There was a slight downside - about 10 minutes in each act were taken over by an ageing lady belter with a famous mother and half sister.  The production could have done without this intrusion - it is a shame but there does come a time to call it a day.

Margaret I like your idea but I have to agree with Vonny - left to my own devices I will probably never do anything either.  How about we journal a page on a friendship theme to be uploaded by, say, 30 September?

Hope you are both sleeping well Miriam and Becky and happy holiday to you Jennie

Morning all enjoy your time away Jennie. Sounds as though you enjoyed the show Mickie. I agree with you Margaret we should do something and I think Mickies idea is good and yes we must put a time scale to it end of Sept sounds good to me.

margaret rorie

Sorry to be a pain but could we make it a little later if we are to do the challenge? We're off to Portugal later this month and only back at the end of Sept. Middle of Oct would be okay - we don't want to have too long. Margaret
vonny

I would need a bit more time too if possible but I like the idea of a friendship page -may be able to squeeze one more in my mini book. Otherwise I might start a Rebel Stampers book/journal and perhaps we could do a different themed page each year  Question
margaret rorie

Vonny - I like your idea of a special Rebel Stampers mini book/journal. Think it's got great potential and you could put in as much or as little as you want. Very Happy Margaret
Mickie

Brilliant idea Vonny Laughing I'm definitely up for that and with regard to the submission date, why don't we make  25 October?  That would leave us a few days grace if anyone has any Halloween challenges.

Mickie x
margaret rorie

25 October would suit me. Margaret
Beckyb

25th would be ok for me.
Going to Jasmine's 1st birthday party today so that will be fun.

Mickie

Enjoy the party Becky - don't eat too much cake!

I'm having a lazy day in front of the screen - been watching Create and Craft.  At the point where I almost succumbed to buying something I turned off. Wink  At this point it would only have become another UFO and I have enough of them to get through Rolling Eyes

I was thinking of devoting Sunday's to clearing UFOs - maybe once the Skandi Thrillers are over.  Not easy to read sub-titles and craft at the same time Laughing  I watch these on iPlayer.

Enjoy your day everyone

Mickie x
margaret rorie

Mickie - what's a UFO? I take it it's not something you see in the sky? Margaret
Mickie

Margaret they are UnFinishedObjects Laughing  I must apologise for the unwanted apostrophe in the plural of Sunday.  I obviously didn't check what I had typed

margaret rorie

I've never heard that one. I like some of the acronyms coined by Darnell - she is American and her blog is hilarious. She has coined the term NBUS - Never Before Used Stuff! I have a link to her blog on my one.

I've recorded Barbara Gray and Graphic 45 on Create and Craft but not had time to watch them yet. I've been sorting out my freebie CS stamps and putting them on a laminated sheet. Now I can see what I've got! Margaret
Mickie

Will have to check her out Margaret; she sounds fun.  I have a friend who frequently refers to CABLE.  Craft Accumulation Beyond Life Expectation, which I find might be becoming a reality

Mickie x Laughing
margaret rorie

This is the website for Darnell's blog - http://www.djkardkreations.com
She has an acronym similar to your friend's but I can't remember it at the moment! It refers to the same stuff - that we will never be able to use in our lifetimes! Margaret
Beckyb

I have loads of UFO, NEBUS and CABLE †Laughing
Thanks for the blog link Margaret will pop over and have a look.
