Hi everyone! DeAnna invited me to join Faith*Scrappers and I am happy to be here !

1) What is your real name/what do you liked to be called? Kimmie/kim

2) Where are you from? Alaska

3) Family? Hubby, Roger (Rog); DS Chris (32); DS J (25); DD Jen (24); DS Matthew (22) - also have a lovely son-in-law, Ivory (26) and a sweet "daughter-in-love" (Matthew's girlfriend), Kasey, 20

4) Occupation? Homemaker

5) Age? 50

6) How many hours a week do you typically spend scrapping? Less than one -- I tend to scrap sporadically and do most of my work during crops

7) What size LOs do you prefer/do you do? I enjoy all sizes, but my favorite size to work with is 8x8

How would you describe your scrapping style? Eclectic, colorful

9) How long have you been scrapping? Archivally, 10.5 years - I've always kept scrapbooks and photo albums, though

10) Do you have a product or technique you’re known for? Or what do you always seem to turn to when you’re putting together a lo? I'm "known" for inking (everything!) and single-photo LOs; also known locally for my gift albums (showers, birthdays, memorial, etc)

11) Do you have a favorite manufacturer or product line? I have come to the realization that I'm a paper addict...Basic Grey, DCWaV, Wild Asparagus /Bohemia, etc - also love to use Tim Holtz distress inks and textured cardstock from Bazzill and DCWaV

12) Why are you drawn to scrapbook your faith journey? I had gotten to a point in my SBing where my motivation and enjoyment had started to dwindle; I went months w/o SBing at all. One day, I joined in a weekly Scripture challenge (at 2 Peas) and re-discovered my joy! Suddenly, creating LOs was fun and easy again and my enthusiasm was back ! I have discovered that scrapping about the Lord and how He works in and affects my life is my primary motivation for scrapping. Also, like some others here have said, I'd like to leave a legacy for my family and loved ones, that will help to guide them to the wonderous love of GOD

13) Is there someone on sb.com whose style inspires you? Too many to list!

14) What do you hope to give and gain from being in the Faith*Scrappers COF group? Basically, I hope to make some new friends and sisters-in-Christ by sharing our love for the Lord and for paper-crafting!
Blessings on your day -- kimB

I made it here to the new thread, DeAnna ! I like having it in the challenge section of the message board.

At the risk of showing my ignorance...how to I save this thread to favorite topics?

Will do my best to make a prayer journal cover and a "favorite Scripture" LO by the 15th. I've created a new "Faith*Scrappers" album in my gallery and will post my items there.

Hello to everyone -- looking forward to knowing you all better through your posts, prayers and creative work ! And HI IRENIE - how fun that we're together in this group!

Love in Christ - kimB

. What is your real name/what do you liked to be called? Jerusha is my real name, you can call me that or you can choose something you like. I am pretty flexible. I have had everything from Jeri to Jeru to Rusha...so it really matters not!
2. Where are you from? Canada
3. Family? I have a wonderful husband named Steve that I have been married to for almost 4 years, and 2 boys - Aiden is 2 and Micah is 4 months old.
4. Occupation? Currently a SAHM, but when Micah is in kindergarten I plan to go back to school for my MEd. so I can teach high school.
5. Age? 25
6. How many hours a week do you typically spend scrapping? 6-8 hours. I try to scrap when my hubby is working an evening shift and the kids are asleep.
7. What size LOs do you prefer/do you do? I usually do 12x12 but I am flexible.
8. How would you describe your scrapping style? Experimental!
9. How long have you been scrapping? A year and a half.
10. Do you have a product or technique you’re known for? Or what do you always seem to turn to when you’re putting together a lo? I used to be a Creative Memories consultant so I have some of their tools. I only did it for about 3 months (there just is no market here to keep it going) but I don't regret it because I got a lot of their tools at a discount price, it is wonderful!
11. Do you have a favorite manufacturer or product line? Not really, I like a little bit of everything. Whatever I can afford!
12. Why are you drawn to scrapbook your faith journey? I am really not talented artistically. I have always longed to be! When I started to get into scrapbooking, I really felt that it was something I could do that I did well. And then as my pages started to get better and better I felt that God had finally blessed me with an artistic flair for SOMETHING. It just makes sense to scrapbook my faith journey now that I am getting used to scrapping.
13. Is there someone on sb.com whose style inspires you? Tons of different people. I love seeing other people's work and wishing I could do it too!
14. What do you hope to give and gain from being in the Faith*Scrappers COF group? I am not sure what I can give since I am new and not experienced. But we all know that sometimes God uses the least likely people to touch other's, so maybe He will use me. But I know I can gain some new friends and some inspiration here and I look forward to getting to know all of you!

Kim you are so right!!! I heard a preacher one time talking about Paul when he was about to be put in prison and some believers lowered him over the wall in a basket and the preacher said "there's this guy down below holding the rope and praying "God please use me for something significant!" and he's holding 13 books of the new testament in his hands."
We never know how God is using us!

Hi, everyone, I found my way over here!!
Well, I want to let you all know that the guardianship was made permanent on Wed. The parents showed up and the judge met with them first and told them that no matter what they say in court, he was granting the guardianship. He advised them that if they want to be a part of the boys lives then they should get counseling. In front of the judge the father tried to make my dh look like he was not communicating with them, but I set him straight on that, since I was the one who kept in contact with the mother the first time the youngest ran away to us. When we left the courtroom all the parents wanted to talk about was getting money for the boys cars (this whole time they've wanted us to pay $3,000 for the boys cars that they payed partial on.) After they left, the boys said that nothing had changed and that they didn't think their parents would get counseling.
The oldests teachers have told me that he is such a different person, and he went to the security guard the day it was final and grabbed her hands and told her that it was over (smiling the whole time). She said he was almost giddy with relief!
