we'd love to, but it's damn hot. Yes, I am originally from Florida and a total weather wuss! I'd be glad to host something in my upstairs someday to be the kid's bedroom (300 sq ft) with a/c. Not trying to rain on your parade, I"m just a big baby (and my medically fragile baby can't be out in the heat). Thanks, Jen
Hi Long Lost Crafty Friends, I hope you have had NO FUN at all, without me Our beautiful little guy, who is now approaching 8 months old, has been trying to scare the crap out of his mommies by doing horrible medical stuff, trying to stop breathing, stopping in for a surgery, and more. Needless to say, we've been a bit busy. It is now 6 weeks past his latest surgery and we have been given the go ahead to semi-socialize. Anyone up for a get together? Let's get started again, I miss the idea of having all these cool friends Let me know if anyone's available. I'm home all the time with him, my dream job. Hope to hear from y'all. Jen
I was planning on it but now I have to take another foster care class, ack! Let's plan something, Ladies. I don't want this group to fall apart!!! Let's do this card thing. I'll send out something on the yahoo craft group. Jen
thanks everyone, that's very cool of you all to wish us well. Right now, the law states that one partner in a same sex partnership, can adopt, so it would be my partner (she has the job) but we both went through the parenting classes, homestudy, etc. I'm going to fight like hell for this baby. Thanks for your ongoing well wishes. Jen
That tat is awesome. You got dumped? Awww, so sad. Love stinks, I tell ya.
Hey everyone, I have to postpone the cake dec demo. There is an important fight about to happen about house bill 515 which is threatening to make it illegal for gay/les/trans people to foster and adopt. This means our baby could have to go to a "straight" house. I'm really pissed and am going to a meeting on saturday about taking action against it. Positive energy appreciated, please! Jen
That was fun! Let's do it again. Maybe we can start our demos. If anyone else is interested in cake dec, please let me know, so far it's kitten and baglady for Saturday the 18th at 2ish. Feel free to come and just eat cake and icing. No pressue to decorate
Some important info: because of the legal situation with our baby, his photos nor his name can be put on the internet. Just in case you want to gush about him he is "baby".
Thanks everyone for coming today. I think it will be great to do more hands on stuff now that most of us have met.
Guess what? Our baby is coming to the craft group today!!! I just called and confirmed that it's safe and appropriate for him to be there. They said they are having a kids' art class as we speak. So, our gorgeous little guy will be making his first coffee house appearance!! I'll be the one with the baby. They said they are putting tables together for us, so I'll go a little early, and just come in and find us He's an excellent, rarely fussy baby, so he'll be fine to hang out with the ladies. Also, my spouse is going on a business trip tomorrow and has a ton of work to do, so she requested that the baby go crafting! I'm so excited. Jen

Too bad you can't make it Sat, i was looking forward to meet you, but its completely understandable. I have to work on the 18th until 1pm, so I'm not sure if I would make it over to your side of town in time for the demo. I work on the east side by the Agora. I'll pm you closer to the event and get your info just in case i get out of work.
If we made it later in the day, could you make it, Marie? Kitten, does that work for you? Jen
Ugh! I'm such a loser for doing this, especially because the new mom (congrats!) is taking the time to come.
It's wedding crunch time (Feb. 18) and I often forget that I'm in grad school as well, plus the icky full-time job working for The Man. Soooo, I have to be a total dork and bail on Bela's. Saaaaaaaaaaad!
BUT the paper and presentation that I have to work on this weekend are about the Cartoon Research Library at the Wexner Center, so it will be semi-creatively focused.
I will be there in spirit and when we get back from the honeymoon I am SO looking forward to meeting all of you at the next get-together.
Peace and love and I can't wait to meet you. Plus....HOORAY for Jen and her new family!
Hi Autumn, I know it's hard to balance everything. I didn't realize you were in grad school, too. Wow, busy life! (I moved up here the day after I took my comps to complete grad school). I can't imagine planning a wedding with that stess. Getting married is wonderful. What kind of wedding are you planning? Ours was a simple civil union at a b and b in Vermont, no guests or anything! Please try to plan to make it for the next one you're available for! Enjoy this busy and wonderful time in your life. Jen
