Hello, ev1! I'm so excited to be here, I don't know where to begin! Lol But then, get me started and you may be here for a while! No, I promise.. short and sweet...I have lived in Kentucky for 37 years, originally from Ohio, and I am married (this past Thurs) for 27 of those years (2nd time around)--and really love my honey, he's a keeper! ( This week) Have 2 grown children, daughter, Heather-- and son, Mitchell. They both have a child of their own, grandaughter, 6, Kennadi --and grandson, 11 mos, Keaton. And they are what keeps my heart warm and my feet and hands busy! I love being a 'mamaw'..(hence the screen name, luv2bmamaw) My granparents all passed before I was old enough to know what they were, so I make it important to be there for mine and to help make memories for them to keep. I am 5th generation in sewing, and love to piece quilts. Have done some painting and wood-crafting.Just this past summer, purchased a Silhouette, and love, love love it!! Can't figure out why I didn't get one sooner!! It has become an important part of my scrapping, and card making. I'm all for new ideas and projects coming and going! Getting ready this week for a scrapbooking retreat, and overwhelmed with getting it packed! So, ya'll wish me luck, and I look forward to meeting and greeting all of you! I love Chris' designs and so very proud of her-- the forum is awesome, Chris! Looking forward to working with ya'll!
