WELCOME BLOGGERETTES!

Welcome to our new 
Bloggerette Sorority! 
I cannot believe the day is finally here! 
From a lunch date with a girl who 
might as well be my daughter - 
listening to her as she 
talked about her Sorority - 
to a hair-brained idea come to fruition.


And today is RUSH day! 


What does that mean?
Our rush project was to take this photo... 

And create something beautiful 
with these lovely "sisters".
No other rules - well except one. 
We have to take our new creation 
and take our picture with it.
Now we can all see what each other looks like! 

That's my Mom - I mean me! (really?)
(Let me tell you - I have earned every line and wrinkle I have!) 

So here I am 
in our backyard with my picture. 
I am a born and raised 
Southern California girl!

I stained an artist canvas 
and worked around it from there.








 Having never been in a sorority - 
I am really looking forward to meeting everyone!

And remember, if anyone wants to host 
a Sorority party, just let me know.
Some awesome women have stepped 
forward and volunteered.
So stay tuned for some scheduled events 
in the coming months.  
I think we are going to have a 
good time as we embark on this journey.


Thanks everyone - this "sisterhood" we have discovered in each other has literally changed my life. I just can't imagine what life would be like without the incredible, wonderful women who are now a part of it. I love you all!



Click on the Sorority blogroll 
on my sidebar 
to visit all our Sorority Sisters!
I can't wait to see everyone! 

NOTE! Some of our newest Sisters - from Jill at "Untie the Ribbons" on down - have joined just today! They might not have their Rush project done by Friday but they will get it done. Give them some time and be sure to visit each of them over the weekend! Thanks!

Have a great day!!!

This is just the beginning of some very good times.

Debra@Common Ground said...

Karen, this is just such a fun and fresh idea, I'm really looking forward to seeing everyone's individual "take" on their project.
Love the concept of "sisterhood", and that's what this blogging community really has become.

Oh, this is just so cute! You did a great job and your idea really came to life. I am coming across some neat things on my blogroll. I would have participated but I am so not the crafty type. This is, however, inspirational!! You did a great job and you look darling in your photo!

Rosie@Journey to Charm said...

Hi, Sister Karen. That is just gorgeous. All that detail. This is just too fun. I guess I better go post mine now. I think I got my mom's picture in mine, too ;~)

Doris Sturm said...

Your project turned out lovely - as did some of the other ladies' that I saw - - -

I guess I'll have to be kicked off the list, because I didn't manage to do my project on time - but I guess one less won't matter since you have so many participants. I'm very sorry. I had grand ideas, but time got away from me.

I hope you don't mind if I still check in once in a while to see what you all are doing?

BLISS angels said...

Woo Hoo at last.. I didn't think this day would ever get here...I'v been so excited and now it's here.

and as your sister I have to say I don't see any lines, what are you talking about??? oh! maybe you mean lines on the canvas??? you are so funny... Hugs ~Wendy from Blissangels

~CC Catherine said...

Girlfriend, I can't believe how "popular" you are these days! :) I'm loving it! I still remember how we met when you won my drawing... Too cute! This Sorority Idea is tremendous and what you did with the photo is as well! I love it! The little satin flowers are priceless, and I'm sure of it, yes...you made them!

You, my dear, are lovely as well! And wrinkles? They are not wrinkles, they are love lines that over the years define the depth of your heart to those that come closest to you! Be proud of them, I am of mine~ :)

Best of luck with this new venture ~ If I can ever get life to slow down enough, I'll be blogging more again. I'm not sure it's gonna happen though unless I start getting up in the wee wee hours of the day before I go off to work.

Hugs Friend....Did I tell you that the court situation was a Victory in our favor? God PROVIDES! xoxo ~CC Catherine

Barb~Bella Vista said...

Hi Karen, so happy to be joining you. Your post is beautiful.

Thank you so much for all your hard work in putting this together for us.

We love you girl!

bj said...

O, Karen, this is so sweet..just darling.
This is all so much fun..and altho I don't have a creative bone in my body, it was fun working with the cute photo... and I feel just as you do...I love all my sister friends in Blogland.
And, speak softly when you say the word WRINKLES...you might not know me well yet so I will get things straight, right off the bat. I am 72 years old and my ...shhhh...
wrinkles are now turning into craters...bwaaaaaaa...

LOVE what you created--and you're absolutely beautiful, my friend! I really think we need a California gathering one of these days! (I'm in the Monterey area).

Can't wait to visit everyone...such a wonderful bunch of ladies!

Thanks for getting this started--so looking forward to everything!

Your project is so very pretty and you have a beautiful smile.

BelleSouth said...

Hello sisters!!

I put mine up earlier today and have already had some stop by and have visited a few myself. I don't see my name over on the left though, so not sure what's happening. I'm Rebecca from A Rabbit In The Garden.

Noticed we had two Rebecca's in the group- shall we do last name initials, such as I would be Rebecca C.?

Let me know, don't want to have confusion!

Well, this was just genius of you to put this together! What fun I've had 'creating' my Rush projects!
Now your creation is gorgeous! Love your roses and how you've dressed up the photo.
Thank you again for thinking of this fun party!
be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Rhondamum said...

Hey Karen! You are gorgeous and I am so honored to have your as our sorority's president, lol. I LOVE what you did for "Rush". Did you make the flowers yourself? I am still learning how to make flowers like that. I used some on my project as well, but mine were a gift.

I am really looking forward to getting to know you and the other sisters better. I can't wait to see what adventures are in store and I'm sure I will host a party at some point as well. If I can do anything, just let me know.

Hope to chat soon!
Rhonda...

Elyse said...

Shellbelle said...

A lovely project, I adore roses and your ribbon roses are beautiful. I lived in Southern California most of my life and it is still my favorite place in the world!

Thanks for starting this sorority, I do believe we are going to be having a lot of fun getting to know each other.

Happy Rush Day!

dana said...

Whew!! I finally GOT ON MY COMPUTER (my daughter needed it for course work she's taking this summer semester....rats!!!). Anyway, Karen, I think you look darlin' standing there with your Bloggerette Creation!! Your work was wonderful...and after visiting your Where Women Create post...I can see you are a professional designer!

You don't know what real wrinkles are, girl, until you take a look at MY face. I truly do look just like my mom did...I earned many, too, but mom gave me the rest! :)

The only sorority I was ever in was an educational one...years ago...and it was BORING!! I'm thinking this one of yours will be such a blast!!

OK..I'm really tired...I'll be back in the morning to visit the many other sisters....I can hardly wait!!

dana

PS Thanks for the computer advice..did I see an IMac and wireless keyboard in your "studio"? :)

Cortney Lyon said...

My 'Rush' is complete and posted! Yes! I love the flowers you created! Have you ever posted directions on how to make them, or will you be posting instructions? I'd love to learn...

I'm off to explore all the sisters! Thank you so much for hosting, I look forward to the next event.

Absolutely a perfect job of framing the photo. Since I have no printer working, I tried the next best thing---I used my computer program to 'do the initiation'.

Thanks for the invitation to join!!

Karen,
It took be a little while, but after several sessions I have been able to visit with everyone of your sisters. I wasn't able to leave a comment with each one, but loved every visit. What a fun Rush Party. I loved seeing those who had completed the rush project and how creative each one was.
Great Party!

Charlene said...

Karen, It looks like RUSH was a HUGE success! I LOVE what you did for your project & I loved your photo. Great idea to have everyone do a picture of themselves with the project!!! You are right that we really don't know what the other look like!!!! DARN I hate it that I missed it. Just couldn't do the doctor appointments, getting ready for Paper Cowgirl, going to Paper Cowgirl, meeting swap deadlines for Les Sirenes, & RUSH all done in the same week!!!!!!!!!! But, I'll bust my booty to get ready for the next event. HUGS! Charlene

Hello Karen, from PA. Your creation is stunning! Truly beautiful. Thanks for this wonderful idea. Unfortunately I posted mine just today and hope you forgive me. I'm enjoying visiting all the other sisters. Have a great 4th!

Karen you are beautiful inside and out sweetpea!
I love your project! I am so sorry I missed the party .... we are in the process of moving and have been out of touch with the computer world for over 9 days {talk about withdrawals} I am so unorganized right now....living in two homes and each a mess of boxs and packing supplies! Oy..... we should have a moving party at my house! :-)

Take care and thank you so much for organizing this wonderful sisterhood!

Hugz, Dolly

I love your wired ribbon roses. I love to make ribbon roses, and I do it two different ways. This was one of the best ideas anyone has ever come up with for a blogging challenge. Thanks so much, I have already met so many wonderful women because of it.
