OUR OTHER IDEAS

OK gals -- here is where I'll post the links to other crafts we do -- be sure to include instructions. When you click on the first picture, you will find the instructions in the gallery under the picture.

IVY BOWL CANDLE HOLDER by Lori

ivy bowl candle holder By Lori...ProudArmyMom


NEAT FRAMED POSTCARDS BY BETSEY

Christmas Cheer By Memex9

In between scrapping I also made four of these framed vintage postcard collages .....one for each of my four children and their families.....The frames are all from Thrift Stores and I pick them up when I find them for a dollar or two.......the rest is stuff from my huge stash of craft stuff that I have gathered over the years.

I made five of these.....framed post cards, each one especially chosen for each one of my children. My daughter Lisa is an avid snowman collector, so hers has a snowman on it.....the rest are in the gallery if you want to see them. I can tell you how to do this.

Just for a reference of sorts!!!

And CC you can step on me anytime!!! I can take it!!

Hey all I'm Jojo...Grandma to one grandson Aidan and mother to 6 kids...Andrew 23, Matthew 21, Elizabeth 20 and then there's Maggie 19, mother to Aidan and Jacqui 15, finally there's Miss Hannah Mae 10. I am a SAHM and this is my second marriage. Hannah belongs to my Husband billy and I, Andrew, Matthew and Elizabeth are mine from a previous marriage, Maggie and Jacqui are Billy's from his previous marriage.

My son Matthew was recently engaged to his girl Jill who he has been with for 4 years. They plan to get married Nov. 27, 2009!!!

I enjoy photography, scrapbooking and the outdoors. My Husband started an ATV Club two years ago and it has gotten very big, very quick. So you'll hear me speak of that from time to time...

I started scrapbooking in Oct. of 2007 when I had the great idea to do a "yearbook" of the ATV Club for Hubby of all our events we held that year...and it was a way to put to paper his accomplishments.

Goodmorning everyone!!!!

Scrappy Gramma don't worry honeypie, I take medicine that makes me forget the names of things I've known my whole life,,,,,hopefully it's temporary, but it's irritating nonetheless!!!!

My name is Holly, I'm 43 (at least for another couple weeks!!) I've got 3 kids and 2 grandchildren. My kids are 23 and 20 (he turns 21 on the same day I turn 44) and 17 (some days I think I'ma kill that one, but so far, I've managed to refrain),,,I'm married to jaime, have been for 25 mostly wonderful years,,,,I love to read and scrap and I've started to make cards, which I love,,,,I love old movies, especially Doris Day,,,,I love anything gone with the Wind,,,,,I've got a Deaf grandson, so I am PASSIONATE about the rights of Deaf children in our schools,,,,I am fluent in 8 year old sign language,,,,which means I can speak perfectly well to an 8 year old,,,,,I love to take pictures of my grandchildren,,,,,

and if I'd known grandchildren were so wonderful, I'd have skipped children and gone straight to grandchildren,,,,

I have a dog named Bailey, a pug whom is my BABY

And I'm DYING to know what the first challenge is

There you have it Holly

Mornin Holly glad you found us.

Mornin Grammies.... just wanted yall to know I will not be around today as we are going to spend the day at the festival today and then to see Taylor Swift tonight. I am already behind on getting ready to go. ya know I have to pack and take my medicine cabinet with me. with 2 kids that are always doing things to (get hurt or sick or what ever) and then ya got me who needs meds off and on all day. So I just pack everything and go with it. Not sure how I am gonna do with Walking so much today I am tempted to take my wheel chair but then I would have to have someone push me around. hey that might not be a bad idea lol then I could take Nikki's laptop and stay in touch. lol well maybe that would not be such a good idea after all

Anyway I just wanted to say Good Morning to you all before I get up and get this old body dressed and get outta here. Have a great day yall

Hello Girls ~ I will write a little about myself ~ That is hard for me because as all of you know, when you get to the point of being a Grandma ~ You are in the habit of putting everything and everone else of more importance. And usually rightfully so ~

My name is Judy ~ My birthday is February 7,1960 ~ I am proud to say I am 49 ~

I have 6 children (Josh - (28), Emily (23), Jake (21), Josiah (19), Jordan (17) & Hannah (15). All these children came from a 20 year marriage that unfortuantley ended in divorce about 10 years ago.

I am remarried to a WONDERFUL man, the Love of my Life, Brian, and we have been married for 6 years.

I am a Christian and I am very involved with my Church where my husband serves as a Deacon.

I run a sate licensed childcare and I have for 25 years. I love my job (most days) ~ I love being home and I am able to do what I love - take care of others.

My grandbaby - isn't this post long enough????

She was born a little over a month ago. Her name is Ashlynn Devoue and she entered the world January 27, 2009 and my life suddenly became sweeter.

She lives an hour away - So close and yet so far ~

I try to get there once a week.

I have been scrapping for about 5 years.

I would call myself a simple scrapper. Try as I might, I have "lifted" ideas from fancier scrappers here but they end up looking like a mess.

The main objective is to leave my children my memories of their lives so I guess they should see my talent rather than others. (Plus, they don't know any differnet - LOL)

I am looking forard to sharing in everyone's memories ~

I need to run to church so will try to "meet" everyone in this group later ~

Have a GREAT day!! Judy

Ouch, someone kicked me in the rear and told me to get in here. I think it was CC, or was it Jojo. Count me in Jojo...CC did a wonderful job with this thread, and I am sure you will too!

To reintroduce myself, my name is Tisha, and I have been married for 50 years to my sweet hubby Allen. I was married right after I graduated from high school! We have been blessed with seven beautiful children, 18 grandchildren and 4 great's. Love them all dearly, along with their spouses and significant others.

I retired from the work force a couple of years ago, so I could enjoy some time with family and pursue a few hobbies. I worked in Telecommunications which I loved and worked in Customer Service to start and then went on to become the Executive Assistant to the CEO and President.

Lets see hobbies: I enjoy scrapping (digi), reading, music, travel and feeding and watching the birds.

If you need to know anything else, ask away...I must tell you, I tend to be a bit of a procrastinator. I try to keep up with the threads but do have spells where I get lazy!!!

So....HELLO everyone. I will be back to read the thread more thoroughly -

NO Holly unless you want to use a B & W photo. by Black and white I mean the main colors in the LO has to be B & W. say black background with white pp over it or your Background pp can be B & W, and then 1 other color can be used on the LO.

doodling can be a swirl, hearts, stichin lines, somekind of drawing on the Lo. Whatever you want to draw.

well hello Tishie...
The parade is for the Strawberry festival (our county fair) and yes I went tot he Taylor Swift concert last night. That was one of Nikki's B-day gifts and it was a great concert. We about froze setting in those blechers in 45 degrees with wind gust up to 40 mph. that part was no fun. and to top it off it started sprinkling on us at the end of the concert so made it that much worse. I am just hoping having the girls out in this that they do not get sick again.

OK time to finish my dinner.

Good Morning Grannies. Haven't been here in a while. How is everyone?

I have a ?. I bought a bread maker and have used it 4 times now but each time my crust turns out kinda tough. I have gone right by the recipes, the exact amts of ings. and have tried all 3 crust settings light, med and dark and it stills seems to be tough to me. The middle is fine and tastes good. Does anyone have any suggestions?

We had snow in AL yest (not use to that) and it was abt. 3". but it was gone by 3pm yest afternoon. It was pretty while snowing though. We seldom get snow here. Sometimes flurries that doesn't last long but yest it was more than flurries.

My DD is going to have another baby. He's due May 17th. This will be 7 kids for her. The oldest will be 15 this month and the youngest (right now) is 2 1/2. They are going to name him Avery Russell, so I will have to change my avatar to my grands pics, LOL.

I went to my ENT and he said everything with my vocal chord is still looking good but he is still wants to see me every 2 mos he is concerned cancer could possibly come back. But right now everything is ok. If it did come back, I would have to have a breathing tube and I would like for you to keep me in your prayers that it doesn't come back, ever.


We had snow abt. 3" yest, but we in AL. are not use to snow. We seldom get it here. It was pretty though while it lasted which it did melt off completely by 3pm yest. It started about 5:00am ct and snowed all day till about 1pm and was all gone , (here & gone). It was cold yest and will be cold for a couple more days here. I am not a winter person and the cold bites hard.

Well enough gab. Hope you all have a great day.

Well one more post before I go to bed.

Suzy don't be nervous you can do this just make it the way you want it to look. and I am sure it will be beautiful. A challenge is jsut to get you thinking Outside the Box . and give you a little direction so no sweat.

No Joan you only have to do 1 (one) LO for the challenge.
and YES you can use more than one photo if you want.
And NO the photo does not have to be Black and White
But you can use one if you want.

OK I am going to bed I have had a rough 2 days and feels like a hammer inside of my head right now. Hope it is gone by the time I get up tomorrow morning.

Have a good night yall \

OK before I sign off for the night...Just to let those know who haven't done a challenge before...it's all in fun and easy peeasy!!! yes there are rules. They are posted on the first page of this thread. If anyone needs any help, shoot me or CC a PM. Again the rules are on the first page. After you upload your LO make sure you check off public embedding...this will allow me to post your LO on the front page, keeping all entries together. This challenge runs till March 13th. That gives you a good 11 days.

The rules just pertain to the colors and embellishments...you can use B/W photos, one photo, or multi photo.

The twists are "extras" (you get an extra vote if you do them)

This will become second hand to all of us very soon...You'll see!!!

Again any questions, feel free to ask!!

Good night...I'll have coffee on in the morning!!!

oooh quick before I forget: caption for JojO's photo: what was the question?


Hi y'all I found the thread - thanks cc for the pm.
was out of work yesterday - sick and of course all that snow that Jojo told you about was in my yard... at least 10". and super cold today...
was supposed to go to an out of town meeting today but cancelled... too much hassle what with missing a day of work ...
I am so frustrated about that challenge: I rarely use black and white - hardly have any blk paper, so guess who did a b&w lo on Sunday? haha! I will see if I can come up with the ingredients cuz doing challenges is always fun...

YAY!!! MARY"S HERE!!!! WOOHOO!!! Good to see you!!! Did you have to go out and shovel the white stuff??? I did only out of guilt!! hehehe!! Took my time,,,did the front and back steps and part of the deck. Man that wind was bitter...stung my face!! I hate the cold!!!

Glad to hear you are excited about the challenge. I usually don't do B/W either...but CC's clever...she's getting you out of your comfort zone, getting us to do things we wouldn't normally do. She's broadening our horizons!!! I'm dying to see what everyone comes up with!!! Even me!!! remember other elements are included too such as the circles and the word "wind" and she has the twists!!!

Well Mary hope you get to be suggily warm today and get your mojo on with the scrappin!!! Have a great day!!

I am almost too ashamed to stick my head in here....Some of you may remember me.....It is Pam (Geebaw) from Texas.....A long absent member of the Positive Grannies......I had to take a forced sabatical from scrapbook.com (and many other things I enjoy) due to overwhelming circumstances in my life....but I am hopeful that I can begin making occasional appearances here again...If you will have me back!! I feel a bit like the Prodigal Grannie!!! LOL

I must confess htat I have not kept up with any of the converstaion here in months. I was having a difficult enough time just keeping up with live conversations!!!! hahahaha But, I notice a number of new names and most of the old familiar ones..so I see you persevered without me!!!

For those of you who are new....I am Geebaw (my grandkid's name for me) and I live in the panhandle of Texas. I have 3 grown children (ages 39, 37, 34) and 6 grandchildren (4 girls and 2 boys; ages 11, 7, 8, 3 and 8 months). I have been scrapping for 10 years. I started slowly, but have slipped into Compulsive in the last 5 years! I am 59 years old. In addition to being a compulsive scrapper, I am an animal lover, movie fanatic, an amateur gourmand and cook, Weight-Watchers member (ate WAAAY too much of my own cooking!), and a TeaPot collector, among other things.

I had not scrapped much at all until recently when I finally was able to begin again....and I have been going non-stop now for several weeks! I am WAAAAY behind! Until I catch up I probably won't be too terribly active here, but I will try to start looking in with regularity again. I would love to do CC's challenge....so I will see if I can incorporate that into some of my "catching up" activity!

  • Im a Believer Said:
Hello Girls ~ I will write a little about myself ~ That is hard for me because as all of you know, when you get to the point of being a Grandma ~ You are in the habit of putting everything and everone else of more importance. And usually rightfully so ~

My name is Judy ~ My birthday is February 7,1960 ~ I am proud to say I am 49 ~

I have 6 children (Josh - (28), Emily (23), Jake (21), Josiah (19), Jordan (17) & Hannah (15). All these children came from a 20 year marriage that unfortuantley ended in divorce about 10 years ago.

I am remarried to a WONDERFUL man, the Love of my Life, Brian, and we have been married for 6 years.

I am a Christian and I am very involved with my Church where my husband serves as a Deacon.

I run a sate licensed childcare and I have for 25 years. I love my job (most days) ~ I love being home and I am able to do what I love - take care of others.

My grandbaby - isn't this post long enough????

She was born a little over a month ago. Her name is Ashlynn Devoue and she entered the world January 27, 2009 and my life suddenly became sweeter.

She lives an hour away - So close and yet so far ~

I try to get there once a week.

I have been scrapping for about 5 years.

I would call myself a simple scrapper. Try as I might, I have "lifted" ideas from fancier scrappers here but they end up looking like a mess.

The main objective is to leave my children my memories of their lives so I guess they should see my talent rather than others. (Plus, they don't know any differnet - LOL)

I am looking forard to sharing in everyone's memories ~

I need to run to church so will try to "meet" everyone in this group later ~

Have a GREAT day!! Judy




Hey Judy!!! Great to have you join us!! I'm new to this Hostess thing...need to remind myself of checking everyone in and getting them on the front page list of members. I'll be doing that for you now. Jump right in and enjoy our crazy, fun-lovin bunch!!!

Morning...I'm tinkering with a couple of ideas in my head to make this thread an enjoyable place to be. For this morning I thought I would post a picture. I would like you gals to take a look and the first thing that pops into your mind I would ask you to write a caption for the photo...OK?? Here's today's photo....


Bugsy My little buggerboo!!!
By Jojo Noons


"Peek-a-boo ... time to get up" - in your face, up close, of course





Oh it's so true I HAVE woken to that little face...how can you resist!!! But now he is HUGE!!! He'll be a year March 7th!! He is still a cuddlebug. Funny story...the other night for what ever reason...I didn't run the humidifier...and the air is so dry with the pellet stove. Well I was snoring up a storm according to Hubby, because my nose dries out and I breath with my mouth open...well I snored so loud that I woke up Hubby and Bugsy started crying and ran up on my chest yelling at me till I woke. Hubby had to tell me, just to let me know, I'm so wonderful to sleep with!!! I even managed to tick off the cat!!!LOL!!!

He looks to me like he is saying - "Oh, please, please let me sit in your lap."

Hi CC, Great challenge girl, and I am so glad you have given us until Friday, March 13th! I am so glad I read Holly's question and went back and re-read the challenge rules again, cause I had missed the extra point part! Doodling and Bling!

Also love Jojo's picture of the Kitty. He is so cute!!!!

Hope none of you got sick CC from being out in the cold at the concert....!!!

Joan, Hi sweetie, You behave yourself and do what the doctor and nurse Jojo tell you. You relax and take it easy. Big hug's to you. I have to ask you to again send me your address so I can send you the picture you requested and a little something..I am so disorganized, you gave me your address and I can't find it. I am sure it will show up someplace amongst my big pile of notes! Talk to you soon.

Mary, Cher, Holly, Judy and Kathy...I am looking forward to getting to know you better!!!

Okay girls!! I am back it has been a long day. They found a cyst in right boob, so that is okay, the Left one gave us some trouble. Something came up on the mammorgram, so they order the cone compression and let me tell you what it felt like. TAKE YOUR TIDDY AND LET A SEMI TRUCK ROLL OVER IT AND RIGHT WHEN YOU THINK IT IS GOING TO ROLL OFF, IT JUST STOPS So after that the ordered a ultra sound, he could not find it, so he was frustrated so went back again to the SEMI TRUCK and they found it. I have to go back in six months. SO thanks for the Prayers, God is always faithful to me! He has never let me down!!

Well what exactly did he find in the left breast? The way you sound, everything went well except for the Semi Truck part...With the second rolling you said they found "it"??

Caption for the kitty picture:

"Seriously,,,I am cute,,,you know I'm cute,,,let's not even fight about it. I win."

Have any of you heard of the ceiling cat pictures?? The I can has Cheez burgers sites and LOL cats sites??
