Hi everyone,

My name is Betty, I am 50 (looks like I might be the oldest in the group !!! I've been married to my DH, Jerry, for 32 years (in Dec). We have four wonderful "kids" - Joshua (24), Adam (22 and recently married to my DIL Andrea), Sarah (20) and Benjamin (18). I thought when Benjamin finished high school (homeschooled) and Sarah started college, and Adam married that I would have soooooo much more time to scrap - I don't know what happened!!!! I hardly ever have time lately. LOL! Sarah and I have worked like dogs for the last couple of months painting and moving rooms around (since Adam married and vacated the premises) and we FINALLY have our dream scrap room/library! (of course - it's mostly scrapping space - !)I just come in here and sit....... don't scrap..... just sit....... and look......! Hopefully I will get some pics of soon of our finished room and HOPEFULLY I will find where I misplaced my mojo when we were organizing so I can get back to scrapping

Anyhow, we have three "kids" still living at home. We also have FIVE dogs - three that live inside and two outside. AND my mother lives on one side of us and DH mother on the other!!!!! So, my life can be a ZOO!

I know a couple of you already and am looking forward to getting to know the others. Sarah is hoping to get on here later and introduce herself - she has two Eng. comp. papers to finish and turn in before midnight tonight - ugh!

Hope you all have a great scrapping weekend (we are going to a crop Fri. night - yippee!!!). I'll check in again soon.

Betty

well, Angela, I'm going to officially declare you the oldest since you're a "grandma"! LOL! Hopefully I won't experience that particular joy for a few more years!

Kim, I haven't heard from Andrea - I'll try to give them a call tonight and see if she's interested. They just moved to Nashville two weeks ago and she just started here new job and they've only had their DSL hooked up for a few days, so she might not have gotten the PM. I'll let you know what I find out.

okay if we are going to talk about age...I have to say I just turned 40 and so far really good! I had this whole perspective change it has been great. I can't imagine what 50 will hold.
I am surprised at my thinking because I had age anxiety for most of my 20's and 30's.

It is nice to be around women who feel empowered by their age!

Good morning ladies!!!

We have another Slow Scrapper joining us from the orginal invite. It's Afdani1984 and I believe her name is Dani. I'm sure she will be by shortly to say hi and give us some info on herself.

I have three other scrappers that have contacted me with great interest in joining us. With those three, it will bring our total to 17 (counting Betty's DIL). I think we will leave it at the number for now. Agreed???

Agree, Kim!
Happy Friday to everyone!
So excited to scrap tonight!
I am working on an 8.5x8.5 album, so I will probably post those pics when I finish with it. I'm only 2 pages in!

Hello all, the Great Kim said I could join.

My name is Krista, I'm from a small rural "city" (it's still small town mentality - with enough people to classify as a city) in Southern Manitoba Canada. About 20 minutes from the North Dakota border.

I'm a stay at home Mom of 2 very rowdy boys. My oldest Cody is 7 and is in Grade Two. My youngest Crispin (or Cris as I've been starting to call him lately) is almost 4 (21 days left) and has enjoyed his very first afternoon in Preschool. I've been married for 11 years and scrapping for 10. I used to be a speedy scrapper, but then I got busy with the kids and all the other daily aspects of life and so scrapping took a back seat.
I'm hoping to be able to get back into the swing of things and try to get caught up. I was almost caught up and then we added Crispin to the family, and I got behind again. I know that I will have about an hour and a half every Wednesday afternoon to scrap (while Crispin is in school) and I'm really looking forward to it.
I think that's a bit about me in a nutshell. Looking forward to getting to know you all.

Hey everyone,

My name is Sarah and I'm 20, will be 21 in April- looks like I might be the youngest here. I'm from Georgia. I guess you all know by now that Kzookeeper is my mom. I'm currently in my freshman year of college. I'm a very slow scrapper- before I started school I got maybe 2-3 LO's done a week. Now that I'm in school, I'm lucky if I even get to scrap at all lol! Thank goodness for Friday night crops! I've been scrapping for about 5 years now, but didn't really get hooked until after I joined sb.com. I love scrapping with fun prints/bright colors and I get inspiration from the little everyday moments.

Thanks so much, Kim, for asking me to join this group! Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Sarah
