Congratulations Annb! September Member of the Month
Posted 13 September 2011 - 12:05 PM
I am overwhelmed! (I got over my speechlessness Ė watch out! LOL) Thank you so much for the great honor of being chosen MOM. The Lordís timing on this was perfect; itís been a very difficult period in my life and this has certainly started September off in a whole new light.
When I first found SG I signed up for the newsletter, I read Roís musings with great faithfulness. But I never explored the website much, in fact once I got done reading the muses I stopped and didnít even finish the newsletter. Little did I know that there was a freebie every day. Wow, I missed so much Ė and it wasnít just the freebies that I missed out on, it was getting to know everyone involved in the forums and chats. When our world seemed to fall apart and I spent many sleepless nights I decided to explore further and signed up on the website. The rest has been a flurry of activity since I found all of you beautiful, supportive people at SG.
Scrapbooking first began for me as a paper scrapper in about 2002. My DDs were into it and convinced me I would enjoy it as well, which I did. One day I was searching online for something and discovered the world of digital scrapbooking and though I still have my paper supplies I hardly ever use them. In fact Iíve considered getting rid of all those things and going totally digital. I have learned so much since I started digital in 2006; the difference between those first pages and the ones now is phenomenal! I owe much of that to the wonderful classes Iíve had at SG. Iím proud to say Iíve convinced my DD to go digital as well, you might know jdhochstetler here at SG, thatís one of them. My other DD is interested, but way to busy working full-time, going to school, & raising 3 kids. But she is a member, 3kidsmom is her user name here & she did go to the Ohio Meet-Up with us.
This was supposed to be short wasnít it? But I have to close with a word about ScrapGirls. The warm friendly atmosphere that has been created here is superb (thank you Ro for following through on your wonderful plans to make it so great!) Iíve learned so much here Ė the chats, the forums, the people are all fantastic and Iím so proud to be a part of it all. Last spring I had the pleasure of meeting some of you in Ohio, even meeting that passionate, purple primate -- Huckleberry. The meet-up was one of the highlights of 2011 for me!
My favorite chats have to be the Speed Scraps and the Swaps. In the forum I appreciate the Prayer and Praise so much. You have all carried me through times of turmoil and shared in my joys in the past couple of years; what a pleasure itís been.
Thanks again for the MOM honor.
