I am having really slow wireless. I have my redo done. I will try to load it when I get to the hotel in DC tomorrow. I don't know if it is this site that is slow or what! Hope everyone is doing well.

Hi ladies! Hope everyone had a good weekend. School starts next week so I'm hoping to get a couple pages cranked out before then. Have we decided on a start and due date for the next challenge?

Dee, glad to hear you're headed home.

I'm getting my master's in communications. I'm exactly halfway done (3 semesters left, counting this one). I can't wait to be done...but I'm also not eager to start paying back those student loans. Eek!

We have to work today too. Unfortunately. And it's so cold here, too. My home thermometer said 12, but with wind chill I think it feels closer to 0 or lower. Brrr. Fortunately Curtis and I have been carpooling the last week or so, so he's dropping me off at the door. Normally I park almost half a mile from work...just so I don't have to pay $6 a day for parking. I could really get used to this chauffeur thing.

I'm stuck at work also. My company doesn't observe MLK day.

I was a scrappin' fool this past weekend. I got several LO's done. Jonesing to get home so that I can finish the one I started late yesterday. One of Kristie's new ones (the one with the rocket) inspired me.

Happy Monday everyone!! I had an awesome weekend. I went to Archiver's on Saturday and was there from 10:30 a.m. til 10:30 p.m. with my two best gal pals. LOTS of fun. We were so silly, i actually only finished two pages in that whole time! But one of them was my redo and I'm SO happy with it. I'll hopefully get it up tonight.

What is it about an awesome weekend that makes it that much harder to get out of bed on Monday morning? And my bed was SO warm and toasty and the house was COLD!! Can't wait for 5:30 so I can go home and scrap!!

I had the same problem a couple weeks ago with roadrunner. After a 30-minute hold-time with them it miraculously came back and stayed back without any interference from them. Go figure.

Good luck!

Ok, think I am up and running. It's only the second time in 2 days that I have lost internet/phone. You know, why pay for the "good stuff" when it keeps going down. They should pro-rate for time lost. Grr, I get so angry. Thanks for letting me vent!!!!

Mel, you should definitely ask for a credit. I do every time I have an issue, even if it's for 10 minutes, and I always get a credit. I say, "Look, I'm working from home, I need reliable service and that 10-minute downtime just cost me about two hours extra work. So I need my account credited for two hours." If it was the better part of a day, let them credit you for a full day. A buck's a buck, you know?

Hi ladies. Hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent most of mine bundled up b/c it is freezing! I had off today, but went into work anyway to get some overtime. Maybe I will get some stuff done tonight. I slept on my neck wrong last night though, and scrapping hurts my back enough as it is, so I don't see myself huntching over my sb table for too long tonight. Take care everyone! And stay warm! (except Julie...I don't feel bad for you...50 degrees is sunbathing weather...lol)

Hi ladies. Just wanted to let you know that Ressica Jachel has had to drop out of the group. They're in the process of buying a new home and she doesn't have the time to devote to FSS right now. I'm planning to let her know that if she does find some time her spot is still open.

Hope everyone had a good Monday!

) What is your real name/what do you liked to be called? Kimberly but everyone calls me Kim

2) Where are you from? originally from Louisiana but moved to Texas 4 years ago.

3) Family? Husband for 12 years,Duane and 3 beautiful children...Landon-16, Caleb-10, and Abigail-8

4) Occupation? SAHM and currently in college to finish my nursing degree.

5) Age? 35years old

6) How many hours a week do you typically spend scrapping? maybe 20

7) What size LOs do you prefer/do you do? 12x12, have never tried any other sizes.

How would you describe your scrapping style? not sure, I like trying new things so I feel as if I am still trying to find my own style.

9) How long have you been scrapping? 2 years as of this month

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 don't think I am really known for anything in particular considering I am still trying to find my own personal style. As for something I like to use on layouts, I tend to ink edges a lot. I love the depth inking can give to paper.

11) Do you have a favorite manufacturer or product line? Yes, I love Basic Grey , Rusty Pickle and Daisy D's . I love papers that look distressed.

12) Is there a technique you’d love to learn or have tried and gave up on? Embossing

13) Is there someone on sb.com or elsewhere whose style you love or whose LOs inspire you? I am continously inspired by so many talented women everytime I log on to the computer.

14) What do you hope to gain from being in the For Scraps Sake group? a continued knowledge of scrapbooking and how I can improve. Many friendships to be treasured.

Julie, had to tell you real quick...I stopped by the featured page of the gallery twice already this a.m. and both times one of your LOs was featured...first your "are we there yet" and then the "fun-o-meter" one. Way to go!

And over the weekend one of us was a featured artist...let me think. Hmmm...Oh, Eat Sleep Scrap. Yay!

I can make everyone feel really good about how far behind they are or how caught up they are in their scrapping. First, all of the LOs I'm doing are going into a book for RJ that he'll get when he eventually leaves home (well, at that point it'll be more like 25 books). Which means that we have nothing about him for us to keep. Which, in turn, means I have to at some point duplicate some pages so we something for our shelves 10-15 years from now. In addition, I haven't even started a book of me yet. All those hundreds and hundreds of pics from my childhood, growing up etc. etc. have never been touched. I've also not done a heritage album for my mom, which i have hundreds of photos for. I took a huge box of her photos last summer, scanned them and "fixed" them all, had them printed and have them in two huge envelopes right now. There really are about 300 photos to be scrapped. Also, I'm only up to April of last year on RJ's pages, which means I have another 300-400 photos sitting in envelopes on the floor of my scraproom waiting to get scrapped for his book. Seriously, not exaggerating here. But at least I'll never run out of things to do!

Kim - you're like a Stepford scrapper. You're on top of things, you're perfect, you're freakin' me out!

Richelle... put on your big girl panties! Don't let your hobby overwhelm you. I find that when all of my back-project seem daunting, if I scrap a whimsical page (maybe your nephew or a pet), all of my stress goes away. We shall not discuss that acrylic album.

Vel... I think you just gave me an idea for a potential group project. I'll get back to you on it.

Thanks Jen and Mel!!!! I look forward to getting to know all of you gals better. Having a blast so far.

So Dee, I missed out on your recent events. How did you end up in the hospital? Hope you don't mind me being nosey...I am studing nursing so aside from scrapping I'm intrigued by all kinds of illnesses and germs. I'm kinda nerdy that way! LOL!!!! Anyway, glad you are out and feeling better.

Hello ladies......Zoedoodle (Debbie) invited me to join you gals.........hope you have room for 1 more.......I know I'm probably the oddball here......I only do digital.......but there is much I can learn from all of you that can easily be carried over into the "digital" world and maybe viseversey:)
So I guess I will start by working my way thru the introductory questions:)
1) What is your real name/what do you liked to be called? Shae
2) Where are you from? Florida
3) Family? Yep, awesome husband, married 10 yrs, son (31) 2 daughters (24 and 26) The kicker.......my son is 3 years older then me...... :).....ok, so I stopped having B-days....hee hee hee!!! oh and 2 adorable little furbabies!!!
4) Occupation? Registered Nurse
5) Age? the BIG 50......wooohooo!!!!!!
6) How many hours a week do you typically spend scrapping? OMG.....way too many....look at my house.......it tells the story...hee hee hee.......ok....let's just say ALOT!!! I'm very indecisive, so it's not like I'm turning out pages right and left.......it just takes me forever to make up my mind!!! :)
7) What size LOs do you prefer/do you do? 12x12, but I also do alot of 5x7's for gifts and photo albums
How would you describe your scrapping style? hmmmmm.....well, I only do digital........other then that.....I'm not sure...I love flowers, doodles, and swirlies.........and I LOVE earthtone, autumn, deep rich colors.
9) How long have you been scrapping? hmmmmmm......5-6 years maybe...? Longer I guess because I have been embellishing photos for a long time........guess that's still scrapping....just on a smaller scale :)
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 tend to use flowers alot.....and I love swirls...
11) Do you have a favorite manufacturer or product line? Designers SweetMade and Pamela Leflours are but a few of my favorites.
12) Is there a technique you’d love to learn or have tried and gave up on? Yes, I have so much trouble with journaling......every time I try I think every thing I write sounds so silly...:)
13) Is there someone on sb.com or elsewhere whose style you love or whose LOs inspire you?
OMG.....there are so many talented people here!!!!
14) What do you hope to gain from being in the For Scraps Sake group?
Honest critique to help improve my style..... learn a variety of different styles and techniques many of which can be applied with digital and fun times with a great group of ladies. :)

Ok...now off to peek at everyone's gallery!!
Oh, and great big congrats Julie....how awesome!!!!!

Hey Shae! Welcome to the group. I think having a digital artist in our midst can be a good thing. It'll expose us to another whole world of scrap possibilities.

The Heath Ledger news is sooooo sad. He's one our guys. My DH and I keep track of up & comers and are always happy to see them in new things. We always say, "look! It's our guy!" His is a horrible loss. We're both really bummed.

Catch ya'll in the AM. FOr some reason I'm really tired tonight. I'm turning in early.

It's a quirky thing, actually. My DH took me to the ER on Friday 1/11 because I was having slurred speech and my face was twitching. After being there for about an hour, they did a CT scan and found a lesion on my brain. I was then transferred to a larger hospital where it was determined that I had an infection. Apparently I had a UTI that went straight to my brain thru my lungs which have vein malformations and are the size of your thumbs (those will be addressed after I get better from all of this) On Friday 1/18, I had brain surgery and they removed the lesion and all of the infection. I am now home with IV antibiotics twice a day for 6 weeks. The tests came back as some sort of strep. I was in for 10 days, but am now home. I knew nothing of this and was perfectly healthy until 1/11/08.

See, told you it was weird...lol Y'all know I just really needed some extra time for that first challenge..haha

OMGosh Dee...wow!!!!! If it makes you feel any better, I just had back surgery the week before Christmas. I produced a lot of layouts once I was able to sit in a chair considering that was about all I was allowed to do. Thank goodness for a hobby that doesn't require too much physical energy. LOL!

Please keep us updated with your progress. That is incredibly fascinating!!!!!! I am sooooo glad that you are feeling better. Thanks for sharing! Alrighty then, going to bed now.
Nighty Night!!!!

Oh and welcome Shae. Glad to have ya!

Morning girlies. And welcome to the club, Shae. We're so glad you joined us. I will update the first post to include Shae's link. I'll also be creating a new pm with all our addresses so we can include Shae in it as well.

Happy Wednesday!

Morning all.

Work has started off just fabulously. I have this nagging feeling that I won't be around much today.

My brother sent some new pics of his family last night. I can't believe it's been almost three years since I actually saw my niece & nephew. I would never recognize them on the street. I really need to plan a trip north to see my family. Not recognizing my niece & nephew is totally unacceptable! I'm a horrible aunt.

On the plus side, however, I have some amazing new pics for scrapping!

Me! I am! I got my pictures together last night for it so they're ready to print. Hope it's ok to use someone else's photos...I just don't think I'll have the time to go around and take pics of the sights in town with school starting next week.

OK...here's the new challenge....

I thought it would be cool to do a layout about the town/city we live in. Since we are all from different parts of the country or at least different towns (well except for Jeni and I), I thought it would be neat to see where we are all from. Is your town known for something? Is there a landmark in your town? Maybe there is only one red light? Show us your town...heck, you can even paint it red first if you want to!!!

This can be either a one or 2 page layout....however you want to do it! As far as the due date...Julie? Can I leave that part up to you.

And, I have no problem with using other people's pictures

We'll keep it at two weeks out if that's still OK with everyone. Which, let's say is the 31st. So, this challenge due by the end of the month. Good timing!

And don't forget goils - when you complete them, put them into your critique gallery first (make sure it's private w/password). We'll run them through the critique process & if you're happy with your LO or want to make changes, then post it live.

A few critique rules. We are all after honest critiques. Of course, the glowing comments are always welcome (we love those), but we will request that you give at least one constructive criticism remark to every single LO... even if it's something as simple as, "hey that button would look better here".

Once you post your layout live & in the public gallery, let us know that it's up & we'll all go give it some proper loving.

We all good?

Dee, you're going to be using that excuse for a while, aren't you? Well, I would too, I guess.

OK, first post is edited to reflect the new challenge. If nobody objects, I'll keep all the challenges up there for quick reference.

Also, Keandra (keeperkwill) got married and is in Disney right now, which is why she hasn't popped in more often. She was also having problems getting the PMs we were sending. But, rest assured, she'll be back with us soon.
