Sorority Update

As of this writing we have 137 Sorority Sisters! 
From all over the world!

Belgium, Germany, Great Britain,
Canada, the Philippines, 
and the United States

Needless to say, Friday is looking like a big day! I was thinking in order to accommodate everyone's time zones, if you can have your "Rush" post ready to go by Thursday at 3pm PST, that'll help. 
If not - no worries! 

To sign up for the Sorority - please leave a comment on the "sign-up" post.
Just click on the button on my sidebar!
It's never too late to join!!!

Be sure to visit all your new Sisters 
and get to know them. 
I am just amazed at the 
diverse group we have! 
It has been suggested that we leave the name of the Country or State you live in on your "Rush" post, and maybe we can begin some real get togethers! 
Thanks for the idea Cindy!

To visit everyone, you will just click on their blog name on the Sorority List on my side bar. I've tried to keep the list in order from who joined first . . . but after the party if we continue to add more Sisters, it will be in alphabetical order. It's just easier for everyone and will be much easier for me. 

I hope I have everyone listed. If you don't see your name, please let me know.

I'm so excited! 
I can't wait to see what everyone has created!

As for future Sorority plans - you will be so pleased at the people who have volunteered to help! We have tutorials and swaps beginning to shape up . . . so stay tuned! I think this will be a fun adventure for us all! 


See you at the PARTY!!!!!!!  
Oh girls - this is gonna be fun!

It would be fun to put us into list of States..then maybe we could meet up with each other locally. Just a thought. Looking forward to it.

A Vintage Chic said...

Good morning, Karen! So exciting!!! A little problem for me, though...I'm leaving town in the morning (Wed.) and will be busy celebrating my parents 50th anniversary Thurs. & Fri., so I won't be able to do a post on either of those days...I'll just HATE not participating in that, but I will be checking in with the other's posts when I can!

Can I add my "rush" photo to my post tonight? It will be my last post before leaving...would that mess things up for you? Please let me know if you get a second!

Hope you're having so much fun with this!


Shelia said...

Woo hoo, Karen! This is going to be so much fun!! I'm a Texas gal and will be looking forward to maybe meeting some gals close by!
See you soon, sistah! :)
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Thanks again!


Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

I can't wait! I also can't wait to see what everyone did with the picture...I can hear myself now...how did they think of that?

Francie of The Scented Cottage said...

What fun ! hmmm I like the idea of doing a list by states...and countries. I like alphabetical too but I'm always at the end of that and unless someone visits from the bottom up sometimes they get too burned out before they get to me LOL.
Gotta go work on my photo...

Doris Sturm said...

Wow, this really does sound monumental! Very exciting!!!

Elyse said...

Karen this will be so much fun! Thanks for hosting this. Just finished my art tonight. I cannot wait to see what everyone came up with!

A Vintage Chic said...

Hi again, Karen! So I just posted my early "rush" post--thanks for letting me do it this way! Do I need to do anything else? Are we linking or anything?

Also, forgot to add earlier that I'm in California, too--quite a lot of us I think--I feel a get-together coming on!


Dogmom Diva said...

I am so excited to see what everyone does, I am not sure I quite know what to do with mine, tossing around ideas so I may mess up but hey its all fun! I am not the most creative gal on earth..

Ok I am in Southern California bloggerettes!

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Hi Karen,
OMG, I bet you are up to your eyeballs in busyness! I am working on my project, have it on the coffee table trying to get inspiration. I am looking forward to Colorado. I've been there twice, but once when I was only 7 and the last time with my ex. in 84, so it's been awhile.
Dan has only driven through there and he is really pumped. Oh and I am so hoping I can still get out there. After the trip, (we leave July 9th,) I should have a better idea. Well I better get busy. I'm meeting another blogger tomorrow too and I need to get my house clean and my project done!
Hang in there,
Big Hugs,

Ginger said...

I work so I cant post my post tomorrow so I went ahead and did it this evening. It is up!!! Really had fun making my creation. Cant wait to see the rest of them.

Cute idea for a blog party. (I'm so behind on everything). Looking forward to seeing your sisters rush events.

HOOTIN' ANNI said...

I have my entry, tho not really all that much, ready to go. I'll try and get it posted before everything is shut down for the day...but, if not, I will have it pre scheduled!!

Hope to see a lot of 'sisters' visit with me. It'll be a fun experience to have new blogger-sisters come by.

The French Bear said...

Yea, I am going to post my photos now...I am off to work but hopefully after I am home I can spend the evening catching up!!! Have fun!

Karen...I would love to join your soroity I live in Ohio and hope some others are from here would be great to meet them. I'm going to try my best to "RUSH" on Fri.
Thanks so much

Charlene said...

Karen, Please take me off the RUSH LIST. I am soooooooo sad but, I just can't make it happen. Lost 3 hours at the doctors office yesterday (with Hubby) & I have to be ready to leave for Paper Cowgirls by 5 today. I haven't packed, finished my skirt or gotten my class supplies... I spent the week finishing & shipping my 2 swaps for Les Sirenes. NOT ENOUGH HOURS IN THE DAY/WEEK! I PROMISE I will make the next event in the sorority!!!! Please don't kick me out girlfriend!!! HUGS! Charlene

Claudia said...

Karen that is such fun! I would love to join, but I am away from home right now and won't be back with all my 'stuff' until after the 4th of July. I don't have access to a printer here.

What do you think?


Home and Heart said...

Just a DARLING creation!! You take great pics too!! I would like to send you your choice of the items I made for hosting such a wonderful party! If you are interested pleas just send me a message. Thank you again!!

Karen, I thought I posted on the original post about the Bloggerette Sorority, but I don't see my blog name listed. I have already posted the badge on my blog, Starlight Primitives. I only found about the sorority one day before the rush thing, so I was unable to participate in that. Please add me to the sorority. My blog is Starlight Primitives and my name is Sharon.

Hi Karen, Looks so nice seeing so many "Sisters" joining in. I know how much went into this wonderful idea.
I have been inspired to join in with making "a studio" for myself.
