    I may need to get myself some of that neat vinyl. It's on my fridge, I just have to figure out how many days until we leave and find some chalk :lmao:

    Apparently, I'm coming down with someone's cold, because I put the battery in the charger, but then didn't plug it in...:crazy2: I'll take and post pictures tomorrow.

    Ah, Siamese kitties, I see it now :)

    Thanks again. It's all awesome!

    Cassey, that's some awesome stuff you got! I love that bag!

    Its great stuff. the brand is Hexis. Its a little pricey per foot. H and H carries it (they are doing $5 shipping every friday through nov), but I actually found a "local" company who carries it and DBF picked it up from me, well worth not paying the shipping. and I bought like 30 feet so it was decently cheap. I may need to add such things to "work"

    Sorry bout your cold. I do things like that all the time.

    :lmao: yes they are siamese kitties!

    Hi Belle!
    I recieved my package on Friday night but I have been working with one year olds all week and so I didnt actually open until yesterday.
    I have taken photos and will post them once I find out why my camera is not uploading.
    Love everything! Especially the Jack head! I think my DD has already claimed it and for the bag, cant decide if it is a new book bag for work or to use it for the next cruise fish exchange reciever!
    Thank you again and will gush more when able to post pics!:hug:

    Ohhh I forgot about the cookies :)

    No, I bought them like that. Then I found the blank ones at the Dollar Store. Which by the way they had all the colors there yesterday!

    Poor LO's got bent. :(

    PS love that pic of Morgan.

    I googled Hexis Chalkboard vinyl-seattle. and came up with a place that has a warehouse in Redmond, about 5 mins from DBF's work. I can order online and send him to pick it up or for $9 they fed ex it to me same/next day. I need to get some vinyl in for the cups I just bought.

    Rachal love those!

    Jennifer, if you find a local place for the vinyl, please share! I am thinking I need one of those for my fridge!

    Lisa, I have many pages that look very similar to that one.:)

    The LOs will flatten just fine in a book, no worries. I stopped at my Dollar Tree on Saturday and another this morning, they didn't have any tumblers. I'm going to order online and ship to the store.

    That picture was at the dedication of a local park. She was 10 weeks old. I propped her up against a pumpkin (Dan was right beside her, but I cropped him out). Those cheeks kill me! (DH found that when he was cleaning out a cabinet in the basement to make room for the Kitchenaid - I had to put it back on the fridge).

    I'll have to look for it. Does your Jo's have the vinyl? Mine does, hoping for a sale soon!

    She's so adorable!

    I'll keep you posted, Cassey. Did you get my email about the 17th? I'd love to have you come to Feed Your Face Food Fest 2012 and meet Rhonda and Pam!

    Cassey, pm me, I can make you one. I just made a whole bunch last night. They are going like hot cakes. :)

    Jen, she's so cute! It was a fluke, ours had all the colors in. Picked up some for DD's party and for my auction basket. Dbf wants me to order black ones..

    My j's carries nada. The selection for scrap related stuff is 2 whole aisles and end caps. One aisle is their crappy paper, most patterns have been there for years. Solids with the exception of core'dinations are so thin, they don't cut well at all. One of my biggest pushes for my new "work" is the lack of good supplies at a good price. If all goes well we may to an actual store. :) the lss selection is ho hum these days, and their prices are high!

    The place I found is uscutter or something like that. They even carry cameo stuff. I need to get some outdoor vinyl ordered today.

    I received my box this morning and I couldn't wait to open it. I sat in the parking lot of the Post Office rummaging through all the goodies.... and they are ALL GOODIES! Thank you so much Kristi! :cool1::cool1::cool1: I love the titles and the paper piecings, especially the Christmas Jammies title and the small christmas tree pieces. What machine are you using to get those words to cut so cleanly? Also, I can't wait for my DH to see the bag, he says I am the bag queen....not purses, bags. I always have at least one with me and this one will be great to add to my collection.

    I will take pics tonight and try to post either tonight or tomorrow. Have a cub scout meeting to get through first!

    I got the email, then one from CCD about a mass that is required that day, just received another today that they are changing the date yet again. I need to sit and figure it out, but it looks like I may be able to join you. I'll let you know.

    So glad you received it. The dc said it went out for delivery on Saturday, but then that night, it said that the status was not updated. Not sure what that was supposed to mean. So I'm glad it made it and I'm glad you liked everything. I use my expression and LaWanna's cameo for cutting. Just depends on which titles. The Christmas jammies was cut with the cameo. I'm also OCD about trimming up pieces if it doesn't have a clean cut. Guess it's the perfectionist coming out in me! I'm a bag lover as well. I have TONS of them, but it's never enough! LOL!
