I was able to get a few people together thru the Internet to start an ATC group. Here is the picture from our first live swap in Elgin on 7-9-08. It was really fun meeting people who craft as crazy as I do! From left to right: Nina -- Kimberly -- Nina's mom andme. Jo was taking the photo....she didn't want to be in it. Hopefully we'll have a few more folks next time....we're meeting again on Aug.9th.

From now on, xmas will only be celebrated once every 5 years in December...........I have declared it so!!!!

Crazy SH

South Haven had their fireworks last night....they were amazing....so I've been told. I was sleeping. They didn't start til after 10p....I can't stay up that late!!!! Anyway, there were TONS of people in and around town.....tons of folks at Sylvia's too. I don't recall being here around this time so it was quite shocking. We've always come in early June...its nice and quiet then. Hopefully everyone went home last night......

South Heaven

....So its back to South Haven today for a few days. Amy and mom have the apartment at Sylvia's....so it'll be a little crowded. Hopefully the weather will be nice so we can be outside most of the time. I'll also be visiting my friend, Jackie, on Tuesday. She sold me my first house in Evergreen Park, was my neighbor for a short time and has remained a good friend.....looking forward to seeing her.

Happy 4th of July!

How blessed are we to live in this great country?! Just want to say 'thanks' to all my relatives who have served and are serving our country. It wouldn't be 'America the free' without you.
