So about a week ago, I drug out my scrapping stuff (and hold crap is there a lot of it!) and it just seemed to follow that I check out 2Ps again. Could not to save my life remember my old log in info, so I just created a new ID. So instead of being Sailorslady (which I'm not in more ways than just my username) I'm the fish. Lots has changed since I was last here. My kiddos are almost all grown. My oldest is 21 and my baby, Lexi, is 16. Man how time flies.

Anyway, it's good to see folks here that I remember and new ones that I hope to get to know.

Hi, Melani!


When I went to edit my signature, the "Edit Signature" title was spelled wrong. So that was distracting and I forgot what I wanted my new signature to be.

Ok, I'll blame it on you

My scrapping stuff had been packed away for the last 3 years. We're finally in our own place with room, so I unpacked it all. I promised Lexi that if I hadn't used it by April that it would all be gone. I've been using my stuff like crazy for all sorts of things.

I started out just lurking over on the GS board and before I knew it, here I was.

eebud - Y'all would not believe how grown up Lexi is. She still talks about how much she enjoyed it when I would take her to the crops with me.

Wow.. they are growing up!

I've got six (6) grandchildren now and Anya, the oldest is 14. Funny I don't feel 14 years older.
