A good party depends on the guests mixing and mingling so here's a thought!

Take a minute and read the profile of someone you don't know that well and post their name here and what you learned about them!

Well, Lauri, I picked you. I found out all of the usual stuff about your job, stamping info and such, but what I really wanted to know is.... Just HOW DOES the Wicked Witch of the West take a shower?

What a COOL idea!!! I did just that... went to the Member's List, selected "S" (for smile) and picked the member with the cutie pie baby photo for her avatar.... "SIMPLECRAFTER".

I know she has a birthday coming up on October 21st and she's a stay at home mom and grandma in Boise, Idaho. I'm sorry to say that I couldn't find her name. SimpleCrafter found the Stamp Shack via a Google search and joined up in May. SimpleCrafter, are you out there today??? I want to tell you that I love the cards you've posted in the gallery and hope we see more from YOU!!! Smiles from Nebraska! :)

That's a great idea... I've learned so much from the profiles, but what about those that don't wish to share anything with us... some of the members here have been here for some time now and they don't even have addresses on their profiles. How do we send them bday cards??? I see that as a lack of trust, being that I feel very safe in this site, Sherry along with the other moderators have made it safe for all of us an still you have those that don't share their info... That really saddens me!!!

I just met Veronica! I've seen her post a few times, but wanted to get to know her better. She lives in Virginia beach but her heart belongs in Canada! She's a retail store manager and loves to stamp and scrapbook. Take a look at Veronica's signature.It's pretty cool.

Well how fun, I found out that members Beans and Bitzybeka have the same birthday July 26. That bitzybeka is loobylou's cousin and she needs to put her name in her profile too! She has her address, but no name!
Come and visit with us ladies!

I just checked Cindi's profile.
I learned quite a bit in a very short while.
She is a top poster with 6,232 posts.
She was born the year I graduated from High School (that makes me OLD!)
She loves to craft and she loves her kitties.
She is a cosmetologist.
She loves swimming and gardening in addition to paper crafts and prim crafts.
She lives in Bangor, Maine...which isn't so far from me, as the crow flies~
HUGS to Cindi!

She and I have responded to each other's threads once-in-awhile, but I haven't had a chance to really get to know Yvonne. She lives near where I grew up (San Francisco Bay Area). She loves to scrap and stamp. She is married with two kids. Her astrological sign is Aquarius (I looked it up. LOL!) And, she has a beautiful smile and she's so nice to everyone. ;)

I can only speak for myself, but I didn't know (until Jan told me) that we could add our address here.... I've only been on really big sites and felt like a number on the big big sites, so I didn't think anyone would want to know anything about lil' ol' me on the Shack - until Jan asked after I was put on the CT! So maybe they just don't know it's an option?

Canadian, eh

I chose the gal above me in the Member List. Caboverdel1 has two boys and one girl. She was born on Valentine's Day and works as a rehab counsellor. Caboverdel1 collects coach purses. Yah, I didn't know what they were either so I googled and here's what I found http://www.coach.com/content/CollectionList.aspx?categoryId=365&child=414. I have fallen in love with these purses too!

I chose Tojoco (Joanne) because she is the first person i ever received a RAK from at the Shack.
Joanne lives in Tennessee, is married with a gorgeous son called Corey, and she is a typesetter, and our resident Shack Talk Newsletter editor.

I also did a bit of detective work and found out that Joanne is a Reality show junkie and is particularly fond of "The Apprentice"

I picked outbackcreative. She's brand new to this site, joined on the 18th of last month, but has no posts.....so here's to hoping she comes back and plays! She had a birthday last month. She was born in Vancouver Canada, married to an Australian for 14 years, and has 3 kids. She now lives in Victoria, Australia. This caught my eye because Vancouver is where DH and I honeymooned and Victoria is our daughter's name!!

Rookie Card Maker, and this is what I found:

Interests:
I'm a "craft-a-holic!" I've got supplies all but hanging from the rafters!
Occupation:
Assistant Manager in Receipts Department of Wycliffe Bible Translators

She's in Florida and I hope she'll post in the forums so we can get to know her better. Looks like a week since she's been on here.

I'm glad my blog gave you the lift you needed at the time. It's funny that I posted right below you and then I went back and read what everyone else wrote. I hope to get to know you better! :cute:

Ok I have choosen Stacy - JBgreendawn. I have learned she lives very close to where I lived growing up. I lived in Medford, OR. She also has a birthday coming up at the end of this month. I love her cards - all of them. However, she has not posted new ones for awhile. All that I know about Stacy from forums, etc. tells me she is a very nice person and someone I would like to know better.

I chose Alison because I have a daughter named Ally (Allyson):

She likes Papertrey (and others) and I just got my first PT set and her favorite embellishments are ribbons and punches!

I pick Chris (mydogstinks2), because her birthday's the same date as our daughter (just a year difference!) and your screen name cracks me up every time I see it.

Hope I remeber this right, but she has a little boy, and dogs(!), stamper (longer than me, I'm sure!) and has many posts!

And thanks, Ethel for picking me! I've been way too busy lately but have bookmarked your blog so I can see your quilts!
