  1. I agree with everyone that this is a fun way to get to know everyone! 1) My kids say I failed them in that I can't teach them how to do make up since I never wear it. My sister did me up for our wedding and I can count on two hands the number of times I've had make up on since then. That was 25 years ago! Too much time, trouble and money. 2) I'm working my dream job at the Zoo. I love working with the birds and learning new things everyday. 3) It sounds like alot of us here love birds. Me too. My favorite right now is African Penguins. 4) I really like getting up super early. Most days I'm up at 3:45, some days earlier. 5) Lately I've taken an interest in Bible Journaling. I like the mixed media sort of activity and I find that studying scripture in that manner makes it really stick. 6) I love coffee. Morning noon or night. You can mess with my dog and my kids, but don't mess with my coffee. 7) I moved to California from Michigan when I was 18 and I was homesick until I was 50. Now that my adult children live with me it's a blessing that I have the time with them that I didn't have with my mom because of the self imposed distance between us. 😎 I love our dogs. We have a Yellow lab, best dog ever, and Erinn and Pauls two big dogs are with us too. Best Grand dogs ever. I don't know why the smiley face is at the beginning of this sentence. It's supposed to be an 8! And it won't fix. 9) Chocolate cake is my favorite dessert. We discovered a local bakery that takes their cutoffs and makes these Grande size cake cups. They are huge and yummy and only $3.00 each. The beat Nothing Bundt Cakes by a long shot. It is now my weekly end of the week treat. Maybe middle of the week too. 10) My first trip out of the country ever was two years ago to Cape Town to work with the African Penguins. It was an amazing opportunity. On that trip I met up with Scrap Girl Belle. I never thought I'd have the opportunity to meet her and it was a really fun evening and felt like we'd known each other in real life forever.

    Monday CHATTER!

    This has been an awesome thread to read. So many memories. Back in the day the chat room was always busy. Sometimes even in the middle of the night you could check in and somebody was there just waiting for a chat. Meeting everyone in person at the two conventions was so much fun, and friendships were made which are true to this day. Meeting people from all over the world here at Scrap Girls, both online and in real life, is testimony to the community that has been built here. The longevity of Scrap Girls is what really stands out too, with so many going so far back, sharing so many memories, but all the while being so welcoming to new members. It's cool. I've been here since 2007, and have never looked back. Hard to believe it's been so many years. Also, I've wondered about Joyce too...
