Welcome to Grand Delusions!!! This very thread may be my grandest "delusion" yet
The purpose of Grand Delusions is tri-fold.
1. To be a social area for grandmothers to talk about life, jobs, kids, grandchildren, husbands, scrapping, crafting and paper crafting, and anything else that we can graciously discuss amongst ourselves without starting WW III. No vicious gossip please I mean if you're going to talk about me at least do it in PM's I'd love to have a morning coffee hour every day. Coffee with friends is a wonderful way to start the day
2. To be a place to share crafting ideas (scrapping and other crafts), learn from eachother, and share finished product. That means you're welcome to post photos of your LO's, projects and other crafts, but no one is REQUIRED to. You can post only the ones you are particularly proud of, or you can simply direct us to your gallery if you don't want to post all 14 photos that you just uploaded if that's easier for you
3. To be a support mechanism in our roles as both parents, grandparents and children as we find ourselves increasingly caught inbetween the three roles. Let's laugh together, cry together, rant and rave together,,,,,,,and maybe it won't be so bad when we're done
To post here you must be a grandmother OR have a grandchild on the way Step grands COUNT!
You must be willing to treat the other posters graciously.
What we're NOT:
We're not a critique group in the strict sense of the word. Please feel free to post LO's and projects if you like, but you're not reqired to. Nor is anyone REQUIRED to leave comments, although they are nice Leave them if you desire,,,,,,,perhaps you only have time to leave a few,,,,,,better a few than nothing
If you're LOOKING for a true critique group, I know one of the very best for grandmothers, and I would be happy to direct you there This is much more casual than a true critique group. Think of it as,,,,,,critique-lite
So come on in, kick off your shoes, pour yourself a cup of coffee or tea, sink into one of the overstuffed chairs, and tell us all about yourself!
and WELCOME!!! Nobody needs permission to join, just come right in and make yourself at home
