SBS GROUP INSTRUCTIONS & INFORMATION (VIP)

READ BEFORE POSTING YOUR REQUEST TO JOIN A GROUP!

Sisters- just want to let you know that you do not have to wait for Tracy or Alana to add you to the list--we do this manually, it is NOT automatic. If there's room (read through comments to this post and compare), you are in this group (if not, you'll be added to the next group). We will add your name to the list as time allows. Thanks so much & WELCOME TO THE SISTERHOOD! Enjoy your new group of gf's!

*First, each sister will leave a comment on this post WITH your full blog URL, first name (and initial of your last name, or use a nickname if you prefer)*. We'll post the master list here and keep it updated.

*Second, create a new post on your blog entitled "Sisterhood of the Blogging Stampers-(your group's #)." Write a little getting-to-know you fact to introduce yourself.

*Third, add everyone to your Sisterhood-(group #) blog roll (in your sidebar is a good place). Don't forget to get your badges for SBS (use your group's #)!

*Fourth, when you've got everyone added to your blog roll, go visit each sister and leave a comment. You're "official" once you are listed here on the master list and put your info on your blog, and you're nearly official if there's still room. Happy inky blogging!

If your want your friends in your group, email them a link and get them to join with you before this group fills up! 20 is the limit! (So before you add everyone to your blogroll, read comments and compare to list to make sure the group isn't full--just in case we haven't had time to update the master list. TIA.)

P.S. We're looking for a Group Admin to organize RAKs and such for your group. Just say your interested in your comment. To make life simple, once your selected...you will notice GROUP ADMIN beside your name. If anyone has questions getting their group started please feel free to contact Tracy. Thanks!

*Don't forget to add your blog URL with the "http://" included (it saves me time copying and pasting your URLs)! If your blog address is missing from your comment, I will just wait on you to post it. I don't have time to find them for myself. Sorry.

Nancy: this is a first for our groups...but before I officially move you I will be contacting you via email. If your email is not accessible via your blog please email me...you can find it under my name on my blog (Sunny Delights). Thanks!

Tracy said...

Ok...I think everyone is added...before I do anything else with this group...#'S 10-13 ARE RESERVED.I will explain later...nothing to worry about though girls!

I am lovin the excitement...start making your plans and as posted earlier go join group 18's challenge's. I keep meaning but just hadn't found the time along with summer activities. Maybe after today's picnic. Thanks so much...sounds like this is going to be a sweet bunch of gals! WELCOME TO THE SISTERHOOD!

Cindy Vernon said...

Our group isn't quite filled yet but it will be soon and I can't wait to get to know everyone. As soon as it is filled, I will be sending an email to all members asking for information to start a master RAK list and to get ideas from members on what kinds of things they would like our group to do. I have some ideas but I'm sure you all have ideas too!

Kathy said...

Welcome to SBS22 Julanne, Sarah and Tina. Our group is almost full! Looks like we are going to have lots of fun sharing our creations.

Anne said...

Please add me to group #22 =0) Looking forward to this.
Hugs,
Stephie

Stephenie said...

Ooops here is my blog addy.

Sorry!

http://stephies-space.blogspot.com/

Becky said...

If I counted right, we are at 20!!! WOW the group sure did fill up fast. I have visited everyones blogs...what a creative bunch we are. Looking forward to sharing ideas and projects, swaps, challenges, and just some good fun!! Happy stamping :O)

Chrissie said...

Wow!
This is great.
I have only 16 listed on my Blog, plus me, making 17!
Who are the mystery 3?
Is it the three reserved spaces?
Intriguing!
I'm really excited about getting to know everyone. It seems that we in the UK are in the minority, so I'm really looking forward to getting to know all you stateside gals!
Chrissie

Peggy said...

Wahoo! I can't wait!

spikescreativeside said...

Oh wow, we're full! That's great!!

Hi everyone!!

NormaJ said...

I count 17 including me, as well.
Who are our reserved mystery guests?

Becky said...

Awww a mystery...lol...if you scroll up thorough the many messages when the group was firt being joined, you will see there are 4 - SBS3 ppl who are the only ones still active. The spaces are being held until a decision is made to move them from that group into a new group. That is how I am understanding it...otherwise, maybe it for new stamp companies so they can give us blog candy everyday??? :O)

Chrissie said...

Very interesting...................
Chrissie

Cindy Vernon said...

Hi, everyone, just awaiting official word that our group is full! In the meantime, I am visiting everyone's blogs and getting email addresses so that I can contact everyone to let them know all the fun activities we have in store to get to know our blogging sisters and to encourage our sisters in their blogging and non-blogging lives. If you do not have a link to your email on your blog or about me page, I will be sending you an email for this info so please email me back! Thanks and talk to you all soon!
Cindy

Cindy Vernon said...

I have emails for everyone except the mystery 3, Chrissie and Deborah. Please email me ladies...I will be sending emails with some activities that you all can participate in beginning Monday. I would like to see our group be an active group and not get dismantled like some of the others. So be looking for some emails from me beginning Monday!

Stephenie said...

We're full? I wonder how come they haven't made us a button yet? Busy I suppose. I am really looking forward to this and I am loving the eagerness and enthusiasm of everyone! We're gonna be an awesome group! I'm very very new to this but I am super excited to be a part of this! Hugs to you all and I can't wait for our first challenge=0)
Hugs,
stephenie

Chrissie said...

Hi Cindy,
I have emailed you now, but I do have an email button on my Blog. I am really looking forward to our shennanigans (can't spell that).By the way, what is RAK please? I can't imagine what the letters stand for!
Chrissie

deborahphipps said...

Hi Cindy,
I emailed you last week--hmmm. My email address is deborahlocklear@gmail.com I will try again now.

Chrissie,
RAK=random acts of kindness--such fun!

Looking forward to all the fun!

Deb

Sarah Elliott said...

This is going to be so much fun!! I think I've added everyone on my blog and visited everyone. The only one I can't leave comments on is Peggy, I'm just getting a wordpress account now so I can start :-)

Just a suggestion, but should we start a yahoo group to keep in contact with everyone?

Chrissie said...

Thanks Deb for the explanation!
I'll have to see how many I can discharge!
Chrissie

Teresa said...

I would be very interested in joining the SBS Group 22 currently showing open on the homepage. According to this message list though, It looks like I could be out of luck. I have only just started blogging and the Sisterhood seems a good place to learn, blogging as well as having fun getting to know the rest of the girlies through cardmaking. My blog address is http://tandrward.blogspot.com/ Don't expect too much when you look, it was only started a couple of days ago. Please let me know if I am lucky.

Teresa said...

I'm not sure if I have made the cut to SBS Group 22. :-(

It's such a shame because you all sound like such nice people. Thanks Anne, to your quick welcome response, and gold star to you being the first post on my "virgin" blog - at least now I know that it works. The one thing I am scared of is that Dear Tracy may make me Group Admin if I drop down to SBS Group 23, not an expert of blogging or groups in general I'm shaking in my boots.

Hey ho, this may be a swift hello, goodbye to everyone. Good luck number 22. Hopefully someone will message me and put me out of my misery.

Kathy said...

Good morning! Our SBS22 group has not been closed because Tracy is a volunteer and does this as she has time. She is also researching if she can move the 3 Reserved people and Nancy to our group from a fairly inactive group. When she gets those answers I'm sure she will close SBS22.
The girl who does the SBS banners is also a volunteer. She has a couple other groups ahead of us to do first.
While we are waiting for all this good stuff to happen, let's keep visiting each other's blogs, posting and encouraging each other as often as we can.
Let's make our Group a very positive place to visit.

Zoe xx said...

Hello everyone - i am being brave and finally putting my name down to join!! I know through reading it looks like this group is now full - but i am putting my name down to be first on the next list for the next one!! Hello teresa ( and to you all too but she may indeed be a sister of mine!! ) I will take on the admin if it is worrying you!! - If i am asked of course lol - OH has a ddegree in computing so i am sure he can help me out if i get stuck. I am now off to check all your fab blogs!!!

TeresaW said...

If you read this message Kathy would you kindly leave me a message
to say where it was that you read it? If you leave your follow up
message on my blog http://tandrward.blogspot.com/ in the comments of
"To my Sisterhood (SBS Group 22) I hope." I might be able to start
figuring things out a bit.

I am responding to your post in answer to Stephenie's question of why SBS Group 22 hasn't been closed yet. I just don't know where my message back will end up. Your message and Stephenie's message I read from my gmail account but I can't imagine that you both sent me a PM. One I responded to via "reply" button which is part of gamil and to this post to you Kathy, I am responding to via "post" button that is in the body of the message and that has linked me back to blogspot not SBS. All these links are doing my head in. HAHAHA

By the sounds of it, you are an expert on SBS so I know you will not mind me asking you to let me know where this message ends up. I keep being directed to "SBS Group22: Open & Accepting Stampers" either via SBS or via blogspot but even though I have commented and I know that at least you and Stephenie have commented, the list of comments are still showing up as only 51 comments with my initial 2 asking to join group 22 being the last entries. It is all very mystifying.

Anyway, I just wanted to say thanks for explaining things - glad someone knows, I'll visit you on your blog soon.

Hugs

TeresaW

Me again. I am finally getting the hang of this blogging lark. It didn't help, that my B'band connection has been playing up or that the blog sites have been very slow to show messages over the last few days. A little irritating, but all minor stuff. I have visited most of my sisters now and the rest I will see you today.

Have a wonderful day, and I look forward to hearing back from you all soon.

Tracy said...

YIKES! I apologize...didn't realize it had been so long since I have checked the posts. Crazy life...just gets in the way of my fun.

Ok, I have you gals as FULL. I am searching my emails this evening and if I have heard from the "mystery gals" then I will add then if not...then whoever is left here will be added. I WILL CLOSE THIS GROUP OUT TONIGHT! (SAT AUG 9th)...thanks for you kindness and patience!

Tracy said...

HEY girls! I posted once already and my post has disappeared! I'm testing to see if this one stays or not...

Boots the Monkey (Jo) said...

Hi to all you Sisters !

You have come highly recommended by a fellow sister and I too would like to join the next group. I see that my mate Zoe has put her name down too so it would be lovely if we could be together ahhhhh !!!!

Thanks !

Jo x

Boots the Monkey (Jo) said...

Hello

I did comment earlier but it seems to have disappeared ! I would love to join the next group of Sisters and I see that my mate Zoe has also added her name. It would be lovely if we could be in the same group together.

Looking forward to joining you all !

My email address is nevillnoe@blueyonder.co.uk

Stephenie said...

It is full? My name isn't added? I thought I got in on time. There are 20 listed and I am not one of them. Will I be put in 23? I sure hope not, I've really been enjoying #22. Please just let me know.
Hugs, Stephenie

Kathy said...

Hey Tracy!
I just saw a comment from Stephenie that she is not listed in SBS22. When I checked the list I see that Nancy is listed twice at #7 & #16. Stephenie should be #20 according to all the comments listed for SBS22.
Thanks for your time checking this out.

Toni said...

hi,
i'd really like to join the next open group - i think this one is full now?? my email is shoe_addict32@hotmail.com and my blog is http://stampingmadtoni.blogspot.com

thanks!

Sarah Elliott said...

Looks like Nancy is listed twice. I'm sure you're in the group, we all have you on our lists :-)

Sarah

TeresaW said...

Well it's been fun experimenting with you all in finding out how to blog etc. but I have come of age, and am now in SBS23. Don't think that it is the last you will hear of me though, I still have you all down as my friends on my blog ;0)

Have fun in SBS22, sorry to see you all go, but I am off to pastures green.

Good luck.

TeresaW

Kathy said...

Tracy,
There is a mistake in the list for SBS22 - Nancy is on the list 2 times. PLEASE correct the list. Stephenie requested to be added on 07/29/08 and she has been moved to SBS23. She belongs in SBS22, NOT 23. Please correct the list and bring Stephenie beck to 22.
Thank you.

Anne said...

No Teresa! Say it isnt so! I want you in 22 with me!!!! If I throw a big hissy fit, do you think she will change it so you are in 22???? Anne -trying to figure out how to throw a hissy fit

Kathy said...

Sorry Anne! Stephenie requested to join on 07/29 way before Teresa did on 08/04. So Steph should definately be in SBS22.

Anne said...

Ok, well Nancy is on twice and we still have 3 blank spaces. Any word on the women those were saved for?
Anne... greasping at straws and heading out to Stephanie's blog to try and remember which one she is and figure out why I forgot it.
...OMG, my word for verification to leave a comment is ORGASM! No joke!

Tracy said...

Hi girls! WHEW looks like Alana has come to my rescue! I will check on the lists and make corrections after work today. If I get a chance during lunch...thanks again for your patience.

THANKS ALANA for doing badges (and much more).

Tracy said...

Ladies of SBS22 please see the note in SBS23's listing concerning your missing members. Hugs to all! Thanks for your patience. I will get your gals filled up ASAP!

spikescreativeside said...

Thanks Tracy for your hard work! We'll get them up to speed in no time! :D

Cheers!

Tracy said...

No problem...I am patiently waiting for two more bloggers to appear...no such luck just yet. I checked @ 12:40pm cst 8/25/08.

Gwen said...

Actually I would like to join!! msy friend Marge too if you still have room for 2 more??? We were in sbs8 but most have left the group...it that ok...snaterg@aol.com

Marge said...

Yes, SBS22, I would like very much to be in Group 22 also (as my dear friend, Gwen previously requested). We were both in a now dwindlng group. Thank you!!! ;-)

Marge said...

Thank you so much, Tracy, for your help! We're so excited to be a part of this FUN group & can't wait to get started blog hopping, doing RAKs, taking part in challenges, etc.!!! ;-)

Which is the best color for an SBS badge? (Choose up to 2)
