My answers- finally getting it done!

1. What is your real name/what do you liked to be called? I go by my middle name Irene

2. Where are you from? Right now I live in Modesto, Calif. This was the town I was born in! I've lived in Oregon, Tennessee and various parts of Calif.

3. Family? I am single-I have been divorced since 1992. I have 5 grown children- ranging in age from 38 to 21 and six beautiful grandchildren who are the joys of my life!

4. Occupation? At the present I am on disability due to Fibromyalgia. In the past I have worked in retail management.
5. Age? A young 58! Don't feel that old even with my health problems!
6. How many hours a week do you typically spend scrapping? Right now probably 4 hours.

7. What size LOs do you prefer/do you do? I normally do 12x12's.
8. How would you describe your scrapping style?I've been scrapping for almost a year. My style varies depending on the picture and the story I want to tell. Most of my recent layouts have been clean and simple. I usually don't add too many embellies unless they are needed with the layout.

9. How long have you been scrapping? Almost a year.
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 have no one technique- but I prefer dark- jewel tone colors. I have just gotten comfortable with bright colors. I was so afraid of mixing colors!Love to use chipboard letters.

11. Do you have a favorite manufacturer or product line? I love Basic Grey papers- other than that it depends on what exactly I'm looking for!

12. Why are you drawn to scrapbook your faith journey? Lately I've had lots of stress in my life- one family crisis after another. I know the only way to achieve some peace of mind is to rely on God more. This will help me to focus on God's ways, his love and his word.
13. Is there someone on sb.com whose style inspires you? There are so many wonderful scrappers here. I love all the variety of styles!

14. What do you hope to give and gain from being in the Faith*Scrappers COF group? I hope to give encouragement- both in scrapping inspiration and also encouragement to everyone in all of our Faith journeys. I hope to gain fellowship and encouragement from everyone- on my spiritual journey and so happy to be apart of this group and getting to know everyone!

Evening Ladies!!!!
Amy I am so glad your home and doing so well!
I see that a few of us have our LO's linked can't wait to see the rest of yours! Kim wheres yours? I saw it in your gallery and loved it!
Kim you asked about the challenge and a pic of ourselves. I must have missed that bit about the pic but will post it. I think most of us have the pic though.
I still need a couple of addy's to send out the books for the circle journals so as soon as I get them I will be shipping them out. Can't wait.
I need all of you to post ideas for themes on here and tell me whether you want them to all be the same theme or owners choice. Just remember they should all be faith related in some way.
Also note how you think the rak for the challenges should be handled. I like the Groovy doodles way of doing it where we each send a little something to the winner. Nothing expensive you understand. And personally I love recieving homemade items. Or do you want the hostess of the challenge to send a rak? Remember that whoever wins the challenge will get to host and choose the next challenge.
Most important the challenge ends April 15th!!!!
Have a Blessed evening
DeAnna

Hi DeAnna - hope your Sunday was wonderful !

For the Circle Journals, it would be more fun (IMHO) if each person had her own theme. If we get to choose our own, then I would like to do mine on "How GOD Speaks to Me" - through nature, His Word, other people, etc. It would be fun to have an album filled with the various ways He speaks to me and others !

About the RAKs -- I like your idea of each one sending a "little something" to the winner; that way, no one individual would be responsible for sending something. But really, I'm fine with whatever way you and the group decide to handle it

Blessings on your evening - - kimB

Hey DeAnna,

Can you get back to our "old thread" on the other boeard? Just wondering if you can send me the link since I can't find my way back after I ditched the email with the link in it.

Thanks if you can help!
Deborah

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!



Congrats Deanna on doing all that is needed. Does everyone remember the old phrase "Why can't we all just get along?". The judges would spend a lot less time in court if people would just do the things they are supposed to do. Enjoy those children and have a good day, Deborah

Finally starting to feel better and get back into the swing of things. I guess spring break being over really makes that happen too.
