Will the Real Barb Please Stand Up

"These are the Barbs I know, I know.  These are the Barbs I know.  Some of them are Barbaras but most of them are Barbs".
...from New Kids in the Hall, These are the Daves I know I know.

We have three Barbs (and two Donnas) joining us on our wonderful cruise.  In order to reduce confusion, please use the first initial of your last names when you place your name on your swaps, or entering contests.

I just checked and the last name initials are all different.  Phew!  What a relief.

Card Swap News

Hello Sailing with Scissors Friends
Please make 35 cards for the swap.  You can make your cards any size, shape or style.  Don't worry if you are a beginner card maker.  Your Sailing with Scissors friends will be glad you participated.  Simple cards, complicated cards or "anything in between cards" are welcome.  Please don't sign the inside of the card because your swap pals may use the cards to send to their family/friends.  Instead, please place a post it note on the back of the card with your first and last name (we have three Barbs in our group) and email address if you wish to remain in contact with your cruise friends.
In addition, I will be posting all cards on this blog so the whole world can admire your creativity.

Retro Gift Wrapped Goodies...come to Wheelhouse Pub first day for details.

Sailing with Scissors Sold Out! Our Group is now Closed!

Hello Sailing with Scissors Friends
It's official this time.  We are sold out.  We had a few rooms become available because of people having to cancel because of medical and family issues.  However, these spots have now been booked.

To mark this happy (record number of friends booking with us) and sad (no more room) occasion, Jessie and I ate our favourite shrimp.  Donna doesn't like shrimp.
Thank you to all of you who booked with our Sailing With Scissors Cardmaking Cruise.

Swap News!

Hello Swap Friends

Jessie has had a few questions about the swaps we will doing on our fabulous cruise, so here is the scoop:

Please make 35 cards for the card swap.  This swap will be capped at 35 participants.

Please make 25 tags for the technique tag swap.  We would like to have more people join us for this fun swap.  If we do get more interest, we will update the blog.
***Also, please email Jessie which technique you wish to do.  In this way, we won't have any duplicate techniques.

Please only bring one new embellishment (or one new package) with a value of $5 for the embellie swap.  Jessie had a great idea to update our old wood mount game from the past.

Everyone is registered for the free Make And Take which will be awesome.  Please also come to the marshmallow game.  It is also free and you will receive items that you will need for your classes.
No marshmallows were harmed in the development of this game which does not really involve marshmallows.

Don't worry about sending in trivia questions about yourselves.  Jessie will be switching up this game.

Any questions?  Please email Jessie.

I'm soooo excited!!

Sneak peak of some door prizes.  Whoa!!!
