I want to say thanks for making me feel so welcome. I don't post much but read alot. When I wanted to start swapping you all made me feel very welcome. Scrapbooking is my way of relaxing, and now I can share it with other, some who even live close to me.


So once again a great big THANKS and lots of for those going thru tough times.

I love these boards - this is my escape from real life, and your support has helped me be creative in ways I would never have dreamed (coming 31 out of 32 for art 3 years running, I'm still amazed you don't just bin my swaps )

You all understand why someone would come on here every day even if there's no hope of Disney for years

You all understand there's no need to meet to be friends

You all know sometimes the best people to talk to are those who have no idea what your problem is

I feel exactly the same way, even though I'm across the country from most of you, the DIS makes us all feel like neighbors.
We have moved around the country a LOT the last 14 years (33 times, yes that's correct) due to DH career, making friends has been hard at times, but I feel that I've made some dear ones here even though we've never met.

to everyone!

I heartily agree with what everyone has said so far. You all are definitely my friends. I am so thankful that I stumbled across this forum and became a part of this fantastic community. You all have inspired me to stretch my creativity through swaps and challenges and reawakened my passion for scrapping. And probably more importantly I know that I can always count on my DIS buddies to chat with, cheer me up, make me laugh or offer a sympathetic ear. I'm not sure my family really gets it when I talk about my "internet friends" - my DH has repeatedly asked me half-seriously "Are you sure you don't have some secret boyfriend you're talking to online?" No - it's something WAY better than that.


to everyone going through difficult times right now.

I admit it, I am a lurker on the swap boards due to the fact that I am a scaredy cat when it comes to thinking about starting to swap. I am much more chatty in the living room and on the scrapbooking board. However, this thread has brought me out of my shell.

I started DISing last year when I was planning our family trip to Disney. I started on the family boards and I got burned. I posted what I thought was an innocent question and I got blasted- reduced to tears. So I stopped DISing for awhile. I came back this past spring and found you guys! And I have to say I am so happy that I did. You are the greatest friends a girl could have! You are welcoming, thoughtful, fun, hilarious, uplifting, protective, creative, and just a huge ray of sunshine! I can't get through the day without checking in with you guys several times!

Life is a little stressful right now and I am so glad that I have friends that I can rely on. So thank you DIS family for making my day! Love ya'll!! (Yes, I am from Texas! )

I feel pretty much the same way as everyone who has posted. Just to add that this is a very easy group to be a part of, very friendly and accepting! I do not know anyone here who scraps or swaps, even though there are obviously a lot of people who do, but I doubt that they would have the same interests and understanding that this group does. I don't know if I would even have gotten so into it if I had not been involved in this board. I think many of us spend a lot of time alone, and this does provide some special companionship.

i'm with you ashley! i'm too afraid to swap 'cause i don't think i'm good enough at my scrapping to make things for other people! someday, maybe i'll jump in.

i agree with every one's comments. you guys really are the best friends a girl could have. i talk about you all the time to dh and i think he thinks i'm nutty! everyone here has ALWAYS been so kind and helpful and i just feel as though i belong here. thank you everyone! i needed this today.

susie, i'll pray for you and your son. come and chat with us when you're having a tough day. we'll get you thru it. that's what we are here for.

aprilvaca so sorry to hear about dd's friend. it must be so hard on his family and friends. i don't know what life lesson is there when you loose someone so young, but i'm sure we are supposed to learn something from it. what? i don't know. maybe to appreciate what you have more???? my heart goes out to her.

look at me, i'm just passing out all the hugs!

in all seriousness, i love my friends here. thank you one and all.

Love this! I agree with what all of you have said. I find myself saying sometimes, "I have a friend who lives in ___________, and she does blah blah blah". I love having this board and you all to talk to all the time! I'm glad to have friends here!!

Thanks so much for the hug...I really do appreciate it. I'll make sure I run upstairs and pass it on to my DD. She can use them right now for sure! It's just such a difficult situation with I am sure many lessons to be learned. Right now she is just so heartbroken that she can't see much thru the sadness. I'm very proud of her though because she was interviewed by the local paper about the whole situation and was asked to find a way to let people know what kind of person Eric was. She did an awesome job articulating her feelings and his parents said her words brought them great comfort Thanks again

aprilvaca04 that's such a heartbreaking thing to happen. My nephew was involved in a serious car accident almost two years ago and he is paralyzed, but thankfully he is alive. It really affected my DD and she is a bit scared to start driving next year. I'm glad to hear this young man was an organ donor.
I'm glad for your newphew although I'm sure it has been a long road I am happy you all still have him. Having Eric be an organ donor has brought great comfort to many people. It reminded me what an extraoridnary gift it truly is. It's just been so hard to watch my DD be so heartbroken. While I know this is reality and there are life lessons to be learned it breaks my heart because all I want to do is protect her because she'll always be our little girl! Thanks for your thoughts, we appreciate them.

I know there are lots of people out there that would love to have any child. I love my child just don't like parts of the situation.

Anyway, this board is my escape and I appreciate each and every one of you.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your son...and you know so what if you were whining everyone deserves to do that sometime especially us moms
