Good evening Bloggerettes! 

As you can all well expect - this Sorority has grown by leaps and bounds. I am trying very hard to keep up with it, keep it organized and meet everyone's expectations. But it is time-consuming. I really don't want to create another blog . . . we shall see what happens the rest of the summer. Hopefully my new idea will work.

So - to keep up, I am creating a Monday morning announcement post. If you have anything you want to share with other sisters - a giveaway, a swap - anything at all - just contact me before any Sunday morning 10 AM Pacific Standard Time and I will try to have it posted every Monday morning. PST!!!! (please don't make me get up any earlier!) :) So - for now - I will post "Sorority stuff" once a week. So get me your info if you want me to include it. And let me know if it is exclusive to Bloggerettes only. Sometimes - that makes it a little more fun and a little more special! :)

For this week and a little bit of last week . . .

Debbie at Mosaic Magpie and Wendy of Bliss Angels are starting an ATC Swap event. I personally have never done an ATC before - this sounds like such fun! Go over and visit Debbie's post to see what they are up to.

I am jumping the gun by announcing this early - but I just had to get it in this post - Sharon at Amelia Rose Cottage is having a giveaway for Sisters - her first one!
Tuesday - July 12th  - pop over and see what it is all about.

Thursday - July 15th! Cassandra from My Artful Adventures is hosting her Sisters only tutorial! I am so excited. Cassie is just wonderful, so go visit her on Thursday to see what all the fuss is about! OMG! I am so excited!

Make sure you visit Angela at Sew Loquacious and sign up for "rewind week".  SOUNDS SO FUN!!!

The fabulous Miss Marty of A Stroll Thru Life is having another Cloche Party on Friday - July 16th! You just HAVE to see what transpires at one of these parties!

The adorable Stefanie at one of my most favorite blogs that I have visited for absolutely forever and ever, Rose Petals and Rust is having a giveaway! Go see!

Lynn - one of my new-found favorite Bloggerettes at Teacup Stitches is also having a giveaway! This is a hint . . . :)

And finally - Marsha at Sassy Mini Dolls is having a giveaway. CHECK IT OUT!

And now I have to laugh. Because my husband and I are taking our only few days we have for vacation this summer over the next few days and I won't be here for our first "Official" Monday morning next week. What great timing . . . (cringe). But we'll be back on Monday, so I will post it Tues. :)

Go visit your other Sorority Sisters and say hello. Join in on the fun that everyone is having. Meet someone new - leave a comment and ENJOY!!!!

Also - PLEASE don't be offended if I cannot join in with your swap - or event - or whatever special party you are having. I promise to try . . . but . . . there just are not enough hours in the day to do it all. Thanks everyone for understanding.

And remember - get me your info by Sunday morning 10 AM PST! If I get it after that - no guarantees it'll make the post. :)

Have a great day!

Thanks again for all you do, and have a wonderful time!

Kimberly said...

she dreams big! said...

Oh Karen, I would love to become one of the sisters too! Missed the rush and I can't guarantee that I will be one of the more prolific creators but when you said tutorials, I'm in! Tell me what I need to do to join this fun and creative group!

Diane said...

Hi Karen
I am so.glad I made you cry! LOL! Remember you made me cry! Anyways, the napkins probably need a soaking. I found them at an antique store and thought they would be perfect for you but didn't have time to soak and all that. It all came from the heart.

Diane said...

well forgot to get in that I am so excited about all of these events.....hope I can fit a few of them in!

Blondie's Journal said...

This is just great. I agree with Marsha that the Sorority has a life of it's own. Love it!

Karen, You are DEFINITELY the organizer for this group! Wonderful job! I'll try to visit some of these bloggers, many I've never heard of before...but then again, I feel like I've been gone forever with so little posting this past year. I'm doing better the past few months...and I'm getting the bug again to stay more active. I miss you all out here! I finally realized that what I love the most about bloggers are that people "listen" to each other. And in todays world, that says ALOT! :) Hugs friend... ~CC Catherine (Have a great time on the trip with hubby!)

Francie of The Scented Cottage said...

Puhlease send me some of your energy and organizing skills! I sooo need to get it together.
