This week is one where we find ourselves with no baseball games. It's slightly weird not packing up the cooler, folding chair, and preparing to chant - 1-2-3 GO COUGARS! The boys played in the District Tournament this weekend and came so close to moving up in the bracket. Their last game against a very strong local team found our boys ahead 11-0 at the bottom of the 3rd inning. All they needed to do was hold the home team and the game would be over. Unfortunately, the boys lost a bit of the "eye of the tiger" and thought they had the game in the bag before it actually ended. The other team ended up winning 11-12. Funny thing is - I think the parents are taking the loss a lot harder than the kids! Go figure! We have no tournaments this weekend and Georgia State tournament next weekend. Regardless of how it turns out - this has been a summer of a lot of fun, making new friends - parents and kids alike!
Anyway, many of my "Maggie" friends on the Magnolia-lious Yahoo group have been hoping someone would take the time to create a database of all the Magnolia stamps available. Someone (I am really sorry I don't know who it is) created an Excel spreadsheet that included the name of the stamp along with the corresponding collection. I decided to take this spreadsheet a little further.
I created the index in MS Word since it would allow the image to stay within the table. This index isn't completed yet but it does start with 2007 Summer Collection and continues through the latest 2011 Sweet Rainbow Collection. The index includes the stamp name, collection, image, and a check box so you can check off the stamps you have already purchased. The file was so large I had to split it up. The first contains stamps from Summer 2007-2008. The second file are all the stamps from 2009-2011. I will warn everyone - the two files total 129 pages right now and roughly 23 mb so be prepared with lots of paper and ink if you plan on printing it out. You may want save the file and take it to Office Depot or Kinko's and have them print it for you. I'm not sure how much they'll charge but it may be cheaper than doing it yourself. You can always just keep it as a "soft" copy if you'd like.
I will update soon to include the older collections and any news that come in. I hope everyone finds this helpful.
