    Well, I am Melanie.  Mother of 3 rotten beautiful children!!!  I haven't had much time to do any crafts.  I am a full time mommy in addition to going to school working towards my degree in Graphic Design.  When I am able to do crafts I enjoy scrapbooking.  After $100's put into scrapbooking I found that doing it digitally is a lot cheaper and funner for me.

    My name is Mary! I am a lunchlady! Yes you heard me right! I just happen to be at my daughters school also. So I get to see her everyday at lunch! What a lucky gal I am! But would like to go to school next fall for pediatric cardiac nursing. I know so specific huh! lol  I have 2 girls 5 years apart. My oldest is 8 and my youngest is 3. I wasn't much of a crafter the first 5 years of my marriage. Then the next 3 years I didn't have time because of my daughters medical issues. But now that things have calmed down I find myself wanting to do things with my girls and start scrapbooking and making holiday crafts. I would also like to get into card making and quilting. I am already a intermediate crocheter. So I am excited to start doing more crafts and start scrapbooking!

    Hello I joined this group awhile ago but just now got my computer up and running again.

    Well I love crafts of all sorts, well to start lol. I made my sons baby book, still in progress of course . He is 20 months. I have an identical book that i was going to keep for another baby but I think I am going to make it into Hunters Special moments.

    Lets see I like to make model airplanes, and hang them in my sons room. I want to get into quilting but have found a sewing machine yet. I loe trying new things and I will be attempting christmas ornaments this year.

    Hmmm well that is all I can think of for now. I will try anything once.

    Hi!  My name is Donna - I have three grown children and five grandchildren ranging in age from just turned three up to 18 years old.  I've been crafting, crocheting and having fun doing lots with a little for a long time.  At Christmas this year, I had the pleasure of having my three youngest with us and showed them how to make dough ornaments and handprints, and we are in the middle of completing a handprint canvas.  I've tried my hand at scrapbooking the past several years and have fun with that, too.  I look forward to sharing with all of you!  Happy New Year - may we all be blessed and healthy!

    Hi, my name is Nancy.  I am a single mom to 4 teenaged daughters, ages 13, 16, 17, & 19.  My oldest daughter is a  freshman in college and my youngest is in 8th grade.  I have been dating my honey, Michael, for about a year and a half.  I am getting ready to start my 2nd semester of college and am working on my Bachelor's degree in Accounting.  I also work full-time as the Corporate Accounts Payable Coordinator for a regional petroleum company.

    I love to take Scrapbooking classes and would like to actually finish an album for each of my daughters.  I have the albums and need to just make the time to work on them.  I would love to also get into making personalized cards for my family and friends.
