A Flasher Thank You

Postby Flasher » Sat May 14, 2016 8:58 pm

With everything being practically officially wound down, I wanted to take a minute to thank everyone that participated in the NSD Virtual Party in any way. 

First, Heidi and Kristin for giving me the opportunity to try my hand at being a hostess.  It was a blast coming up with ideas for challenges and games.  Sometimes a bit stressful keeping track of things, especially during periods of quick moving posts.  But, overall just PLAIN FUN!  I hope I represented ACOT well!

Next, my fellow hostesses.  To those who have hosted before, thanks for all the tips and pointers.  It helped immensely.  It still amazes me that I've been on this board for 13 years and still learn new things about this place all the time!  Even though communication through those sometimes crazy PMs was hectic, I think we did a good job at keeping each other in the loop and we were able to stay pretty well organized.  It was fun working with each and every one of you!

Lastly, all the participating Cherries!  Thanks for playing along and doing the challenges.  It's so nice to see participation in all the games and challenges.  I found myself second guessing some of my choices.  I'm sure we've all done that . . . think of an idea that seems really neat to you, but then you wonder if anyone else will feel the same way.  I was nervous about my challenges and games, but everyone showed there was no reason to be.  You played along and made it fun.  I hope all the Cherries had as much fun as I did. 

Again, thanks to ACOT and all the Cherries! 

The more you weigh, the harder you are to kidnap.  Stay safe.  Eat cake.

THANK YOU Laura.  You did a fabulous job and I know how wonderful it is to be a hostess with other Cherries.  You really get to know them so much better, don't you think?

Thanks to all the hostesses and like Deanna, I didn't get to all of them but they were all fantastic!!

Thanks Laura and ALL of you hostesses. I love all the work you all put into it.  Life has been crazy here and I wish I had more time and energy to scrap.
I used to be indecisive; now I'm not sure.

I think you and the other NDS hostesses were amazing. I wish Friday's deadlines could have lasted all month. (My schedule has been nuts)  There were so many fantastic ideas!!!

I wasn't able to participate in the fun and games on NSD, but I really enjoyed the challenges. I wish I could have done them all. They were all amazing.

You did an awesome job with your choices!! I am not a big game player and I missed some of the day but enjoyed all the hostesses challenges even though my time was limited this year and I didn't get to do very many. They were all fun and innovative! 
Thanks so much for being hostesses and thank you ACOT for having another fun NSD crop!
