To all my Sassy Stampers......

I just need one moment to vent and then all will be well! When we decided to become a group we committed ourselves to that group. I am fully aware that we ALL have lives....myself included but come on could check into our forum thread every once in a while. Most everyone is keeping up there blogs (that isn't the issue) but there have been some complaints about fellow bloggers not leaving comments and we all know there have only been about 5 of us on the forum thread in the past few weeks.
So here is the link to check in......Sassy Stampers blog thread
Also, one other thing, we all wanted to do challenges and as of the last 2 or 3 rounds the showing has been horrible. You do realize that the hostess for that challenge put's time and effort into putting it together and keeping up with it, you would think we could show our appreciation by showing up for them and joining in once in a while. I know most of you are very involved in other challenges on SCS so maybe you could try to support our group as well!!! Here is the link to our 7th challenge........letstampnscrap
Please don't think I'm saying you have to be involved in every single thing every single day but lets just try to be supportive of each other, leave the comments we are to be leaving, keep up with our blogs, and join in and be active once in a while!!!
I love all of you and I enjoy each and every one of your blogs and contributions!

Sorry you are feeling that people are not keeping up. I try to post to blogs a couple times a week when people up date., I have it on my blog so I can see when people post new things to their blog. Alot of people don't update their blogs often. I have done 2 or 3 of the challenges and have voted in them all so far. I admit I don't comment often on the thread, that is my last thought at times. It seems I have the same people commenting on my blog post. My life tends to get busy and I do the best I can.
Just a small note... In my last 10 post that I went back and check you have not commented once?

April, I am soooo sorry you are feeling this way. Honestly, I didn't realize that signing up to be in the group meant doing challenges, with no more people that do them it is not something worth doing. I feel sooo very bad that I do not get to comment more often, I do try. As far as the forum, what can I say, I cannot keep up with all of these threads. I am so sorry, I will make every effort to visit more often, can't promise anything with the challenges or the thread. I do hope you have a great day...hugs and more big hugs! *~*

I have to admit that I am not very present in the challenges and on the forum but do tend to comment on everyone's blogs a lot. As much as I'd love to do the challenges I just haven't seemed to find the time and have only done 1 so far. I'll make a note to get to the forum more often and will continue to comment on blogs...I usually do this on a daily basis except for the last 2 weeks since work was a killer.

Hi April,

Obviously this last ten days has been out for me with the pneumonia, but I do feel I contribute all I can to this group. Unsure how we can kick start those who do not or rarely contribute - I know there are quite a number really...not withstanding the ladies I KNOW always leave comments on my blog...I know who you are and thanks!

As far as challenges go, I was most disheartened when one of the challenges I was in accepted cards that did not meet the challenge requirements and consequently won. Maybe others felt the same. Don't worry, mine was never going to win (I do not enter to win merely to participate) but someone else who did meet the requirements really should have. I think that has to be ironed no...I missed that bit excuse...if it does not fit ALL requirements then it should not be in that particular challenge.

Hi April,

I appreciate you sharing your thoughts with the group. Perhaps there are others who feel the same way.

Hope we have more traffic on the thread and participation with the challenges. I've been about 50% on both and definitely visit and comment on blogs when the weekend comes around.

Thank you for your support and kick in the rear for us who may need it.

inky hugs!
