Hi! I'm Katie! I live in Ohio with my hubby of 24 years. We have 2 boys, 21yo (away in college) and 18yo (in college living at home). I watch children during the day - and make cards and scrapbook during their naptime! In the evenings I teach card making classes locally, and I have started offering online classes as well!
Hello.....I'm kinda new here...joined a long time ago but have been uber busy taking are of my youngest who has been very ill for the past few years. I'm happy to be back. I'm definitely a beginner but love it so. I saw a post about NSD and joined a few hallenges and rediscovered my love for scrapbooking. It was a calm in the storm of the super busy life I lead taking care of my family.
I was a special education teacher for 14 years but for the past five years I have happily stayed home to take care of my Lil guy who is the light of my life. I am the lucky mother of two boys ages 17 and 10 years.
My new motto: Keeping sane one layout at a time.
I look forward to chatting with you all and learning a ton. I welcome your help and ideas.
Hello from Michigan's BEAUTYfull Upper Peninsula! I am very new to all of this, I ordered some card making kits and have been going crazy ordering paper punches, card stock, adhesives etc. I am amazed by the video's and sites like this that are willing to teach newbies like me!!! Since I will be making cards I have a question... a friend of mine owned a floor co. and when he closed he let me have all of the wallpaper sample books and I was thinking surely there must be some way into incorporating those into some of my cards... any suggestions? I also have two large coffee cans full of buttons that I got when my Grandma passed away... I see lot's of them on cards! I have spent two days in the gallery just looking at other cards and posting them in my favorites and voting on them! Looking forward to your posts and learning everything I can to pursue my new hobbie! Renee
I am a newbie here jumped into the challanges and that is how I got started I love tp peruse the galleries lookign fo rnew idea nd love participatin in challanges. I am form Illinois and I ma married with three furrkids. I used to be a foster home for rescue and that is how I wound up with three.

I love UP it has been awhile since I have been gut it is pretty there! Love all the waterfalls! Last tiem I was up there I found a great scrapbooking store in Ironwood I cannot remeber the name now but I think it was something like two sisters not sure.
[color:purple]Hello Cloverlady! I finally clicked around enough to find my original post and then saw your replies. My name is Renee, I live in Ontonagon! That's about an hour from Ironwood. So I will have a friend on here, lol. And we have animals in common! LOVE your dogs, they are beautiful! I had a black chow when I lived in Georgia. My current baby is a rescue, he is a five year old Plott/Redbone hound dog. I was raised with a Doberman and have had three since then so I am very partial to them but LOVE them all!!! My last dog was a Great Dane named Minnie, lol. She was extremely tall. When she passed from cancer and old age I had to go get another right away! My husband of 17 yrs. drives Semi over the road and is gone for a week to three at a time so I HAVE to have a dog to cuddle with and protect me. He had major separation anxiety for the first two years I had him, then I rescued a cat and Ohhhhh my goodness, the BEST thing I could have ever done for him! They love eachother SOOO much, always cuddling and kissing one another and NO MORE anxiety when I have to leave! Anyway... Yes I am excited about this new hobbie, How long have you been scrapbooking? I had posted in my other post that I had some wallpaper books from a flooring co. that closed and was thinking surely I should be able to get some use out of them! Would you use them in your projects? I will see if I can do a search for you and if any of your photo's of your work show up! I just got an order yesterday with some of doodlebug designs fruit stand and my first paper I got, I ordered on HSN when I ordered my card kits. Oh shoot... it has been SOOOO long since I have posted in a forum or anything it just dawned on me... I'm wondering if this will post for everyone to read or just go to you? Oh geez... oh well I guess I will have to post to see... Cryin out loud and here I am writing a book, lol. Well I will sign off... keep in touch hey? I will see if I can find some of your projects [/color]
