We were chosen from the audience, so 'No, we were not naked', but the purple velour dress I was wearing barely covered my cheeks, so I'm not sure what was 'on view' once we were on the stage and dancing. And for those of you who know me now, I weighed about 130 pounds at the time, had medium brown hair midway down my back, and measured 38-24-36. Twenty-one wasn't a bad age to be.

The notification gremlins have been playing havoc again with my computer, so I've missed several days worth of postings.

CraftADDchick, I'm the lucky one who received your special edition card. I just chalked it up to ADD, laughed, and thought how lucky I was.

Onyxnox, I thought about using a photo just of me, but since Jim was at the Meet Up when we were first talking about this idea (translation for "Rox was twisting our arms . . . but not very hard. We were all pretty gung-ho.), I thought I'd include him. Warning: I have two Craftster daughters and we're expecting our first grandchild in January, so there's no telling who might appear on my Round 2 cards!

Alteredmommy, my received list is correct as of 8/25.

How in the heck did I miss this thread? How did I miss the tarts? Oh, yeah! I was too busy talking to everyone to eat much. Guess I'll have to try them now since I LOVE lemon anything.

The beer batter might have been better on a cheddar cheese. You might consider a tempura style batter next time. It's thinner and often uses rice flour or cornstarch which would make the shell crispier. Still looks delicious though!

Chipotle ranch with cheese curds sounds decadently delish!

And you almost lost me at Balsamic vinegar! Cheesy

I've been thinking about making some cream of cauliflower soup. Sure have been seeing some pretty heads of cauliflower and thinking about how yummy they can be. Cheese sauce, Hollandaise sauce, shallots and butter . . .

Yofi, you did a great job of rescueing that rocker! Hope it brings you decades of pleasure!

Bunny, you always do wonderful stencilled items and that shirt is no exception.

Went to a scrapbook convention this past weekend, so I thought I'd share some of the cards I made in classes. These penguin pop up cards are from a Lickety Split class. I adore penguins!

Then these were from a Stephanie Barnard class. She designs for Sizzix (stamps, pop up dies, flip it dies, stand up dies) plus she has her own company, Stamps for Life. She's a great teacher, so take one of her classes if the opportunity ever arises. You won't regret it because you'll learn a lot of tips and techniques for using the interactive dies.

Another class I took was from ClearScraps, a company that features acrylic cards, tags, and decor items. Learning what adhesives and paints to use on acrylic cardstock and how to correct mistakes will keep you from wasting time and materials, plus everything looks so professional when you've finished.

I also took a Heartfelt Creations class but I still have to add the glitter to those cards so I'll post them another time.

I'm part Irish as well. Must be where we get our sense of humor.

The only cards I'm waiting to receive are UTM's and our Canadian friends other than Onyxnox. Sounds like it might be a longer wait than expected to finish this swap. Anticipation is good though, right?

I appreciate every one of my years. I think of the new things I've learned, the new people I've met, the places I've been, and remember that 20 years ago I was fighting for my life. Getting older has been such a blessing. I wish it for each of you!

AIMR, how many times have you kissed the Blarney Stone? Are you part Irish, too? Thanks for the sweet words.

At 65 I told you I was the Ancient One. According to Asian culture, doesn't that mean that I'm suppose to be honored and revered?Huh The fact that I don't have a drop of Asian ancestry is immaterial.

Oh ya, she's ANCIENT! That's why she's such a terrific crafter, so much time to practice Cheesy.

These things are so great. My collection is never boring no matter how many times I look through. I am storing them in card sleeves and am going to add my own card stats in the pockets next to them. If we swapped, met, projects of yours I really love, etc. It'll be like having a visit every time I get out that book Smiley.

I like the idea of adding swap partner, meets, and fav projects next to each card. Think I may appropriate that idea to add to my folder.

As for edelC, if we ignore her typo, I think that makes me the eldest. Maybe that's why I'm so bossy - eldest sister syndrome.  Cheesy
