Hi From Virginia

20 posts in this topic

Hi. My name is Mandy and I'm from the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia. I received a Silhouette Cameo for Christmas and I've been playing around with it, but haven't done anything spectacular yet. :) I'm a civil engineer by day, but I'd rather be a full-time crafter/DIYer. I love to sew, draw, paint, build, repurpose, crochet, knit, decorate.... (you get the picture). I have a 20 year old son and a 17 year old daughter who will be going to college in the fall and a wonderful boyfriend (he bought me the Silhouette).

 

Glad to be here and hope to learn a lot.

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome! Even though I'm pretty computer savvy and not new to crafting/scrapbooking and such, I do find my Silhouette a little intimidating. lol I guess when I break it in I'll feel better.

Hi Mandy. I thought I replied, but my pc doesn't like me this week. I won a Silhouette Portrait before Christmas. I haven't been able to get it set up so I'm not much help there!

Welcome to SG. I live near the Richmond, VA area.

Thanks again for the welcomes! Jenrou, I was in Richmond a few weeks ago. My boyfriend is a geologist and we were there for a gym/mineral show.

Hi Mandy! You look so young in your photo! (My children are about the same ages as yours, with my son being the youngest, but I still have him for another year, although we are getting started on the college thing!) What a sweet boyfriend! :2468who-do-we-appreciate: I am sure you will have great fun with your Silhouette!

Aww...Thanks Kerry! That pic was taken last fall. I've been told I look younger than my 46 years. I have good genes I guess. :dancing_penguin: I know my mind feels a lot younger, I just wish my body would play along!

Shenandoah is one of my favorite places to camp and take photos. Sherando.
