THE SEVENTH DIAMOND

Saturday, January 26, 2008

Welcome to the Saturday Morning Chat Group!



Good Morning Everyone and welcome to the Saturday Morning Chat Group! Verna made a fantastic sidebar graphic for us that will automatically link you to the chat group. It is in html, so if you would like a copy, let me know your e-mail address and I'll send it to you.
Today I am going to focus on housekeeping issues and then we'll be at Zach's hockey game tonight. What are your plans?

Also don't forget to sign up today for Dannye's Year of the Rat Giveaway. You need to go to her blog 'LayDFrog' to enter. There is a post if you scroll down. The drawing is tonight.

The chat room is closed for today, thanks for a great morning!

Good Morning! We're going to try something a little new with the comments, so let me know if you like it.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Good Morning..
I clicked on my little sidebar and it brought me right to you...
I am getting ready for good ole work

redmaryjanes said...

Yeah, I got your e-mail last night that you have to work this morning. Any word on that position that may be opening up that you want?

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Okay.. I am loving the lady brushing her teeth.. you find the cutest things..

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

I actually sent in my resume(sp) for the regional office.. but I think the one at the store will be opening up.. he went for his interview on thurs.. and it went well. so I am hoping

redmaryjanes said...

Yeah, I love her. I've had that graphic for a while but just put her up there today.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

what are you doing different on the comments..I don't notice anything different

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

How was Zach's game last night.. did they win????

Nancy said...

Good Morning RMJ and Isabella's Mommy,

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Good Morning Nancy....

redmaryjanes said...

Hey there Nancy! How are you doing? Now that I'm all signed up for the bow swap, I don't know where to go to get some good bows. I think Gwen's Mom is selling some to raise money for Savannah, maybe I should order some from her.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Did you get anymore people for the bow swap????
I think that was a GREAT turnout

Nancy said...

Not much planned here today. My dad has been here since Wed. He is taking us out to breakfast and then leaving.
Need to get some things packed up for him to take home to my niece.

Also need to work on the bow swap.

redmaryjanes said...

I thought that it would take you right to the bottom of the comments without having to scroll, but it doesn't. You can hit the jump to comment box on the top and you can comment right away, but that's about it I think.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

I have a wonderful place here.. can't show mine that I buy because then my secret pal and secret buddy would know who I am.. LOL

Nancy said...

I currently have 25 people signed up. I found bows at a little specialty shop here. I think there was a participant that said she knows someone that does it as well.

Nancy said...

I got someone signed up today from England. Any takers on that one?!

redmaryjanes said...

The game last night was REALLY good. They tied 1 to 1 but it was very intense and Zach's coach and his wife each came to me separately to tell what a fantastic job they think Zach is doing on the team this year. So, that felt really good.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

WOW... that is really neat...
I am game..

redmaryjanes said...

Who is it from England?

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Are we swapping with one person or a couple

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Don't you just love it when the coaches come up to you personally.. that is a GREAT feeling as a parent..

redmaryjanes said...

I have sent things to England before and as long as the package is light, it's no more expensive than mailing it in the US if you use the US Postal Service anyway. So, I'd love to swap with someone in England. So, if Kim and I sign up for her, that's a good start.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Do the other boys play any sports????
Colton just started playing football and hopefully he makes the basketball team.. he is growing soo fast..
And KyLee I think is going to play volleyball her freshman yr... can't wait..

redmaryjanes said...

25 is an awesome turn-out. I think I signed up to swap with 4 people. I love these things.

And yes, it felt great to hear that he is doing well. Zach's coach had him switch positions which he took really hard but in the end has been so good for him.

Nancy said...

I decided to have each person swap one bow to the number they said they would do. You said four, I think, so you will get 4 names.

Great Job Zach. You are a brave Mom. I would fear my kid would lose a tooth. Of course, that happened in our backyard with just my 3 playing.

redmaryjanes said...

Zach plays hockey, golf on occassion but is really big into water sports. He loves to ski and wakeboard.

Tyler plays tennis.

redmaryjanes said...

In the agegroup Zach is in, full face coverage is required. So, he wears a mouthguard, but his entire face is covered by a metal cage on the front of the helmet. I have too much invested in the braces he wore for 3 years to let anything near his teeth : )

Nancy said...

I have 2 children I need to start on braces. It is so hard when insurance won't cover it, and your finances are strapped.

Nancy said...

I also wonder if they don't recommend more kids for orthodontists now because they simply can.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Tell me about braces... Nick had them first.. and I still have a hard time with him keeping his retainer in at night..
KyLee has them on right now.. they are just waiting on some teeth to come in.. her teeth are sooo slow..
and in a few months.. it is finally my turn.. i go to the dentist every 3 months.. and I am sick of it.. time to get my not so straight teeth straight...LOL

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

oops..didn't mean to post it twice...

redmaryjanes said...

Zach's upper and lower jaws were the same size, so his mouth wouldn't close properly and he had crooked teeth so we knew he needed them.

Kate my step-daughter had TMJ and was in a lot of jaw pain, so she needed them.

Tyler's teeth are crooked but everything else is ok.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

I am lucky and the insurance last year went up to 2000.00 coverage and would cover adults.. this year it went away untess you had it last year.. so I have to get them this year or tooo bad..I will pay full price..

Nancy said...

Under your post is a garbage can. If you click on it, it will give you the option to delete the extra.

Nancy said...

I have had some people ask me if I am going to continue to swap names monthly. Would any of you be interested in that? Do you think it would fly?
If I did that, I would only give 1 name a month.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Can we send more then one bow to our people..

redmaryjanes said...

I have two girlfriends who have braces. They have the clear ones that don't show very much.
Tim's insurance covers $1500 and mine covers $1000. Then my ex-husband covers the difference so we paid nothing for Zach's. Kate's we're splitting what's left with her Mom. Tyler we probably won't have to pay because it will be the same situation as Zach's.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

So swap a bow each month.. or different things...

Nancy said...

I say that is to your discression (sp). I'm not going to police it.

redmaryjanes said...

I think I want to send 2 bows to each person.

Nancy said...

It sounds like they want to do bows with different themes.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

You are lucky..
I paid the total for Nicks.. and KyLee's we split with her dad..
So I think it is worth it..
My mother didn't have the insurance or the money..

Nancy said...

My original post said about $5 per bow should be used. I am going to stick to that as a minimum. I would hate for someone to get a dollar store cheapy.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

That would be fun...
I would enter..
So then you send one bow of that theme to one person..????

Nancy said...

My oldest has had braces once when he was younger due to a fall.
He now needs to start the 2nd set that all his teeth are in.

My middle son has a bad jaw line that needs some work.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

I would like to do 2.. the shipping would not be anymore

Nancy said...

That is how I understand the monthly swap to go. Plus you get a new name each month. No mystery.

Kim & Jeff said...

Good morning ladies :)

Nancy said...

good morning Kim.

redmaryjanes said...

That could be kind of fun, but maybe if the swap switched monthly too so you didn't have a ton of bows at the end of the year.

Like if you had a bow swap one month, a bib swap the next, a book swap, a sock swap, a Christmas ornament in December.

See where I'm going with this? I'd sign up for sure.

redmaryjanes said...

Hi there Kim!

Kim & Jeff said...

You have all been chatty this am 42 posts already...

Not much going on in Badger Land today but we are heading over to Madison tonight for a hockey game as well.. They are playing the Gophers big rival..

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Good Morning Kim...
What are your plans this fine weekend...
You won't be freezing your butt off...LOL
I LOVE Oreo.. did you find a new name for him...So glad they decided to let him go to a GREAT home...

Kim & Jeff said...

Kim that sounds like fun... I'd be in for that...

Nancy said...

That would be my fear. I love bows, but do I really want 50 of them?

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

I would sign up for the swap too..

redmaryjanes said...

Yeah, we are talking it up this morning. We're talking about Nancy's bow swap and braces.

Kim & Jeff said...

His name is still oreo but it just doesn't seem to fit him... He's 6 mos old so we could still change his name without any problem... Shadow is having a ball with him... Kind of like a live squeek toy :)

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Maybe the bib,book,sock,thing would work well..
Then you have different stuff..

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

I showed my husband the picture and he said.. don't think about it..
I just laughed at him...

Kim & Jeff said...

Does anyone know which blog is doing the drawing for the camera? I saw it a couple of days agao and now I can't remember which one it was on..

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Kim- are you heading to AZ. next weekend????

Nancy said...

I like the idea of switching it out on like a 3 or 4 month rotation. Bows, books, socks, etc.

redmaryjanes said...

I don't know, but I'd love to check it out. Does anyone remember?

Kim & Jeff said...

Jeff said this was it :) I actually saw another one on their site that is just adorable :) - he said 3 was enough :)

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Yes it is
http://wheneastmeetssouth.blogspot.com/
The actual blog is Ni Hao Y'all...When East Meets South..

Steffie B. said...

Just wanted to say good morning to the Blog Ho and her Groupies! lol

redmaryjanes said...

Nancy,
That would be cool. I'd sign up for sure.

Nancy said...

Heading to the shower so I am ready when everyone gets up for breakfast. Will check back later.
Thanks all!!!

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

I just love reading that blog.. I have yet to comment.. don't ask me why.. Stefanie is amazing.. they are in the process of adopting another little boy..

redmaryjanes said...

Good Morning Steffie. You know you are a hoe too! Smoooooch!!

Nancy said...

Steffie is looking for a fight this morning...isn't she???

When does your man come home?

Kim & Jeff said...

No won't be heading to AZ :(...

I also like the idea of switching it up...

As far as the braces go... I actually had them 6 years ago... Went the invisalign route...

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Bye Nancy..
Hello Stef... how are you...

Nancy said...

And what happen to being discrete (sp). I thought it was just going to be BH!!!

Steffie B. said...

he comes home today......i am so tired.....I have just a few more things to do...both kids are sick with fevers....oh my achin' word!

redmaryjanes said...

See you in a bit Nancy.

Kim & Jeff said...

Hey Steff.....

Nancy said...

So, he gets home, and you are hitting the spa for the day.
Right?!?!?

redmaryjanes said...

Oh man Stef, I was hoping that you guys were going to be better now. This is a tough year for flu bugs. You have gotten a TON done while hubs was away.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Stef.. are you done with your list yet ?????
Your hubby will be home soon.. you better have that list done...LOL

Steffie B. said...

Hi Kim and Kim....and Miss sassy pants Nancy

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Sorry to hear that the kids are sick.. that is not good..

Nancy said...

You say that with such love and affection;)

Steffie B. said...

well ladies...I'm sitting her with my big boots on cuz i have more stuff to drag to the trash....you all have a great day....perhaps I'll check back in a few.....I really, really want to be a BH too! lol

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

We love ya girly..

amy said...

redmaryjanes said...

Whatever...I'm coming up with a name for you too sister...just give me a minute here. Hang in there with all the snow. : )

Kim & Jeff said...

I'll be back in a bit... Have to run dh over to basketball practice... We are down to one car today car in the shop..

redmaryjanes said...

Hey Amy!
Any good baby names?

redmaryjanes said...

Ok Kim, see you in a bit, get the man to basketball.

amy said...

oh you are quick..NO good ones just lots of Emmas and Ellas this weekend

I did meet a little boy named Tripp who has been home from China for 3 months

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

Bye Kim..
Good Morning Amy...

amy said...

Good morning friends! Worked last night so I wont be here long but at least had to stop by!

Zachary said...

Emma and Ella are popular right now. So is Sophia, but I love it so I'm keeping it for our girl.

Zachary said...

Look at that, I moved to our downstairs computer and I'm posting as Zach. Hold on.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

I was like.. why is Zach making a comment...LOL..

amy said...

Sophia is not as popular as it used to be but it will always be classy and girly!

redmaryjanes said...

Kim Bison,
I have to say that now because there have 3 Kim's on this morning.
Do you have a computer in your bedroom so you can follow along while you get ready?

redmaryjanes said...

Now, are going to call Lynn Marie, Lynn Marie or just Lynn?

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

You know.. I run from room to room... my husband says he should video it..
I will go put on my make-up...don't use very much.. come back..
Start curling my hair.. come back..
then I will sit for awhile.. then go back..
so it is really funny..
he told me to put the laptop in the bedroom.. but I like sitting in the chair..LOL
Are you laughing yet..

amy said...

No not just Lynn she will be LynnMarie !!!!

Truly Blessed said...

Good morning ladies!

There is a beautiful snow falling gently here in my corner of the world -- how about yours?

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy said...

We have 4 computers in the house.. but our main one is in the dining/ family room.. but I never use the laptop.. it sits on the table.. hubby will use it when I am always on the other one.. and the kids all have one..
so I should put the laptop in the bedroom would make more sense..

amy said...

Its just cold here in Atlanta!!!

redmaryjanes said...

Good Morning Kelly!
It's snowing here too. Fluffy snow, maybe good for a snowman.

Dannye said...

Dannye said...

redmaryjanes said...

Hi there Dannye! Hmm..CNY could be really cool. You'll have to post pictures.

amy said...

Hello Dannye!!! Have a great day!

redmaryjanes said...

Tell my SP that she didn't need to but I'm smiling ear to ear!

amy said...

Give aways and swaps are too fun!

redmaryjanes said...

Yes, it's on her blog but you have to scroll down a couple of posts.

redmaryjanes said...

WHERE DID KELLY GO?

redmaryjanes said...

Amy,
Did you sign up for Nancy's bow swap?

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy(Kim & John) said...

Found it... Did you see I put my name and john's ... I don't think everyone knows my name... so that might help... instead of Isabella's mommy and daddy..

amy said...

I did not but will next time as we are tight financially right now and b) i cant find the time..

next time for sure

Kelley said...

Good morning! It's only 8:00am (for me) and I see that you're already in full swing! It's going to take me awhile to catch up on what you all are talking about, but I thought I'd say hi first!!

Truly Blessed said...

What did I miss? My computer is so SLOW this morning!

Hey, great news (well, on it's way to being great anyway) I shipped off our documents to the Chinese Consulate in Chicago yesterday. I was hoping to be DTC by the end of January, but since that won't happen, now I'm hoping that we're DTC the 1st week of February.

redmaryjanes said...

I hear you Amy girl.

redmaryjanes said...

Hi there Kelley!

redmaryjanes said...

That is good news Kelly. Little Elizabeth with be home soon. I can't wait to see her. How was your week?

Nancy said...

We are expecting highs in the upper 40's today, and 50's tomorrow.

amy said...

RMJ, thanks again for doing this each week

YOU ROCK!!!

redmaryjanes said...

I went over there Kim but I think she has comment moderation on so I didn't see your name. I know who you are though.

Truly Blessed said...

heh. Saw your post Kimberley -- glad you missed me!

redmaryjanes said...

: ) Thanks Amy.
I love that everyone comes so we can talk and get to know what's going on in each others lives.

redmaryjanes said...

I did miss you, you were here and then I couldn't find ya! I know you have a crazy household too though.

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy(Kim & John) said...

No I mean when I comment.. it now says..(isabella's mommy and daddy(kim & john)..
Well .. guess it is off to Disneyland...LOL..
We have a HUGE event.. the arizona cardinals kicker will be there to sign autographs...(I am not a cardinals fan.. BRONCOS for me..)
Glad I was able to chat for awhile...
Have a Great Day all..
HUGS TO YOU ALL..

Isabella's Mommy & Daddy(Kim & John) said...

Pit stop..
Starbucks...
LOL..

Kelley said...

Hey Kimberley, my comments are kind of weird today...there's a separate little box on the side that won't maximize, and there's no refresh button, so I have to exit out of the comments section and re-enter from your blog. Do you think that's your attempt at a new setting, or on my end? I'm going to have to investigate this... :)

redmaryjanes said...

Have a great day Kim!

Truly Blessed said...

My busy-ness this morning has to do with making coffee (why don't I remember to set the coffee-maker the night before?) and attending to every whim of the princess (who is quite demanding this morning, I must say). all of the boys are sleeping and Daddy is out of town working, so I get to do all of the bowing and scraping to HRH myself. It's exhasting!

redmaryjanes said...

Kelley,
I made some changes that Verna suggested might make it faster and easier to maneuver through the posts.

IS THIS NEW SET UP HARDER EVERYONE? LET ME KNOW AND I'LL CHANGE IT BACK. I PUT IT ON POP UPS.

Kelley said...

Whatever is wrong with my comment box seems to be on my end...my other blogs are doing it too. (Sigh!)

redmaryjanes said...

Zach is in the shower.
Tyler's nursing a tooth that just fell out.
And Eli is watching Oliver and Company, he loves that movie.

Truly Blessed said...

I'm having a difficult time with this comment thing, too. I cannot refresh it at all, so I have to exit out of comments, back to the blog and then re-enter comments.

Katie is dancing to Colby's song on your blog -- oh how cute!

amy said...

Nothing looks different to me right now!!!

Anyone here from the Memphis area? we are headed there in Feb for a trip

Kelley said...

Glad it's not just me, Kelly. I'm wondering why the other blogs I visit are doing this too, though. I need to find a way to change my settings...

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

Good morning LADIES!!! This is Kristy, I can't stay long , my cousins 25th weding anniversary and I have a ton of stuff to do and three places to be in the next 3 hours and I am still in my pj's because I did not want to miss any of this! lol I love the little lady brushing her teeth!

redmaryjanes said...

Let me see what I can do here.

Kelley said...

Hi, Kristy! I loved the birthday pictures you posted (forgot which day it was)...very sweet!

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

Are any of you planning on going to the East meets West conference in Chicago in April?

redmaryjanes said...

Good Morning Kristy! You have a VERY busy day today. I hope your cousin has a wonderful Anniversary.

Kelley said...

Yay! You fixed it! Thanks! Now I can refresh and it's faster for me to see the comments!

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

Thank you Kim, we decorated and everything last night, but today is just the finishing touches. I was 15 when I was in her wedding, I was the jr. bridesmaid, wow time sures does fly!

amy said...

Anyone have big plans sfor the day..


BTW, if you check either of my blogs I just posted a link to the sweetest blog I am reading right now

redmaryjanes said...

Ok good, Kelly is this better for you too now? I have two Kelly/Kelley's today.

Truly Blessed said...

Kristy,

We went to an EMW conference in Colombus OH a couple of years ago and found it very informative.

Kimberley, whatever you just did for the comments is MUCH better -- thanks!

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

Hi Kelley, thank you. Aren't they just too cute, especially that Jacob with his dirty little face. Zane on the right has down syndrome and I love that picture because he looks completely without DS to me if that makes any sense. God love him he is just a doll.

redmaryjanes said...

WHAT IS THE EAST MEETS WEST CONFERENCE? I HAVEN'T HEARD OF IT.

Truly Blessed said...

25 years married -- that's great.

How long has everyone else been married?

We're working on 19 for 2008.

Kelley said...

Kelly, I like your new icon for your comments. Cute, cute, cute! We haven't got any big plans today...Tom is going to go to Lowe's to get a tile saw. We have two bathrooms in dire need of remodeling, and I'm hoping he'll get to it soon. It's been months already...all we've done is start to peel the yucky 1986 flower wallpaper. The bathrooms need new tubs, new tile, new wallpaper--and of course new paint, new towels, new showercurtains. I have to have my pretty trimmings. Hee, hee, hee!

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

(truly blessed), we have gone to some travel seminars that were really good and I know that some of the conference will be a repeat but it will be a nice weekend getaway also, and we will feel like we are doing "something" in regards to our baby!

Kelley said...

I'm not signed up for the bow swap, but I know a great site for pretty hair clippies. I ordered several of the ones that were being discontinued and were on sale. They are even better when you see them in person. They truly stay in Chloe's hair without slipping, too, unlike her bows. Check them out--they may work for the swap. http://www.hairclippy.com/

redmaryjanes said...

I only have 2 bathrooms and they both could use some work too. But my man isn't handy.

redmaryjanes said...

We have been married for 4.5 years.

Truly Blessed said...

East Meets West (EMW) is a conference put on by Great Wall. It's not just for GWCA families though. They bring in speakers and have panel discussions -- you can sign up for four "talks" and they can be about everything pertaining to the paperchase to referral to home with baby/common medical concerns etc.

We heard Cindy Champnella speak at the one we went to. She was AMAZING. Adam Pertman also was a keynote speaker at the EMW we attended.

amy said...

we celebrated 6 years in October!

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

It is in Chicago April 19th and 20th, I am pretty sure. We are flying out there on the 18th. Gosh I wish some of you could go. Are you with Great Wall?

redmaryjanes said...

Kelly,
19 years is wonderful. You have such a beautiful family and your husband is so nice.

Truly Blessed said...

Kelley,

thanks for the comment about my little dancing girls -- originally there were seven, but I had to cut four out to make them fit anywhere. I just love them too!

Kristy,

You'll enjoy the conference and you're right about it being a nice weekend away.

PLUS, you'll see some beautiful little girls there!

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

Amy isn't your hubby that has the Rockin 80's blog?

redmaryjanes said...

That sounds wonderful. We are with Bethany and they don't have anything like that that I know of.

redmaryjanes said...

Kelley,
I will check out that clippy site.

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

I am really looking forward to it, when you go to things like that it reminds you that is really gonna happen!!!

Kelley said...

More on bows...Check out this link, too...these are the ones that are on sale (I bought several of these). There are lots of bows, too. They are all hand-made and of excellent quality. When I got mine, they were even on a ribbon with a round key-ring loop at the top so that I could hang them nicely. Gotta love it! http://www.hairclippy.com/shop_sales.asp I have another source for some cheaper bows, too. They won't fit the $5 criteria for Nancy's bow swap, but if you want lots of pretty bows for everyday wear, they are SUPER affordable. There's no website for this lady...but I have a great "catalog" that she mailed me. If you email me at kapow1969@yahoo.com, I'll forward it to you. :)

Truly Blessed said...

Kimberley, thanks for the sweet compliments. I am TRULY BLESSED!!

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

Kim it is not just for GW families, go to Great Walls site and there is a graphic for it , just click on it and go from there, I would love for you to go.

amy said...

Hey guys I gotta go to bed but I will miss ya..Gotta work tonight...

If anyone has time go say to hubby over at

www.valtool.blogspot.com and or www.rockingthhe80s.blogspot.com

he was so happy you visited last week

redmaryjanes said...

Kelley,
I checked out the main clippy bows site and they do have some cute things.

amy said...

and yes that is my hubby, thanks for asking..he has so much planned for the blog he acts like a little boy

redmaryjanes said...

Goodnight Amy!
I'll try to get over and leave some notes for you hubs.
Have a great weekend.

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

Amy he left the nicest comment on my blog after I had left him one, tell him thank you very much. You gotta a winner there!!!

Franceskasjourneyhome said...

Hey ladies I could sit here all morning, but in an hour or so I would be kickin myself for not getting off my butt since I have so much to do, so I hope all of you have a great day and an awesome week, Love to all!

Love, Kristy

Kelley said...

Kristy, that conference sounds like it would be great--and it does help with the wait to "do something." I did all of that stuff while we were waiting for Chloe!

Amy, I love your husband's blog...I commented this week to him that I like to play the music while I check my blogs. :)

redmaryjanes said...

Kristy,

Kelley the other day I was on glitter-graphics.com and they have a blinkie that says something like I love rubber duckies, or something like that and I thought of you, if you go look click on blinkies and search it, I thought of you when I saw it , it was kind of cute!

Next weekend I am going to do the first post for the Starfish fundraiser. She needs summer clothing, baby shoes and winter sleepers with feet. She is also asking for Playtex bottles with the bags.

I guess I shouldn't call it a fundraiser since it's more of a supplyraiser.

Kelley said...

Kimberley, I'm out of the loop with your Starfish fundraiser...sounds like a great idea from what I do understand about it, though.

Who else is still here besides me and you?

Hello ladies I'm back :)

Just trying to read thru and catch up... I was actually thinking about going tothe conference in Chicago but didn't know if I could since I'm not with Great Wall...

Bye to all who have left already and I should probably get moving myself (but I won't...I'll keep popping back in, I know myself too well!).

I love the idea of a "supply raiser" for Amanda and the Starfish team. I so admire her work. I'd love to do what she does when I retire.
