    I'll start since I am the Goddess and all! :rotfl2: Just wanted to say welcome to everyone!

    I'm Buffy and I hail from blink and ya miss it, CT. I'm 33 years old and I am a SAHM. I have been married to DH going on 15 years and we have 4 kids, DS11, DS6, DS5, and DD 1.5.
    I have been scrapping for 3 years now. I started by diving in head first with 9 heritage albums for myself, my brothers, and my cousins. And I really got my feet wet with our first Disney trip, which took me 2 years to finish! :rolleyes:
    We have been to WDW as a family 5 times and I have been 2 more times to scrap, once with mom and once with DH. We have a trip planned for Dec of this year as well.
    Other hobbies include cross stitch, swapping, and collecting scrap supplies.

    We are a crazy lot, from all walks of life and all over the world, but this is the best group of guys a gals anyone could ever meet.

    HI! I'm BAMB's (BernardandMissBianca's) left hand (only because I'm left handed and it's easier for me! :lmao:)!

    I'm Nancy..NAHM(SAHM) of 5 munchkins who start school tomorrow!!!!! :)
    DH and I have been married 11 years but have known each other for over 20 years! We have 5 children.. 4 boys & 1 girl!

    We've been to WDW twice and are due to go back in 2008 as soon as I can get DH to decide on a date so I can get it booked... He is being a bit difficult today on the date so I'm being a bit more demanding on his decision! MEN!

    I started scrapbooking about 2 years ago when I found the DIS boards..I finally finished our WDW trip from 2005 a month ago. It's funny how my pages progressed in that time frame. Right now, I'm getting ready to catch up on DD's 4-H project album (only have 3 more years to go but that is nothin'), I'm trying to finish 3 paperbag albums for kids' trips. I'm working about 3 other things too. Which reminds me.. I need to get to the store today and pick up some photos and a scrapbook!

    I'm sure there is more but I need to go supervise fighting kids (better known as MY life!)

    I'm Debbie. I live with my DH, DS19, DS15, and newDS18 (DS19's friend that has adopted us). We have 2 puppy girls, 1 yellow lab, 1 chocolate lab. The girls and I are the princesses of the house...everything else has testosterone.

    I work in the lab at the hospital. I work WIP (weekend incentive program) which means that I work Fri, Sat, Sunday 3 out of 4 weekends. This leaves me lots of time to do my crafts. I also teach jewelry making and painting. I collect scrap supplies and toys, swap items, recipes, Disney antenna toppers, and hummingbirds. I have so many albums to finish, I'll never be done.

    Right now I'm working on a baby album for a shower, finishing stuff from CKC, preparing classes for the fall, and organizing my house (another project that will never be finished). DS15 was in a terrible bike accident on Tuesday (so very scary!!), so he is taking up my time right now...but I DIS while he is resting...

    :welcome: to all the new friends....

    Love it!

    I'm Michelle! 27 and a SAHM to 2 kids that are 11months apart :) Autumn & Gabriel. They are crazy and constantly on over-drive :) I've been married for almost 3 yrs in September and we're cooking baby number 3!!! So YUP! we have had 3 kids in 3yrs! We adopted 3 months after getting married (and several years of being told we would not be able to have children) & ended up pregnant 2 months after adopting :laughing:

    DH works across the street, so I'm very lucky to have helping hands pretty much all day long :) Maybe that's why I am willing to have #3!! (AND he's another crazy boy!! Roman-Alexander)

    I love to craft! I'm a beader by nature mainly jewelry and cell phone charms and even have my own small business :yay: I'm busy all day, but LOVE LOVE LOVE a good schedule! It keeps me sane!!

    PS, in case you couldn't tell I love to talk!! :hyper:

    hi everyone
    I am Jennifer and I live in CT. I have been married for 11 years and have two wonderful sons Logan 5 pirate: and Tyler almost 2:stitch: . I work full time (to pay for daycare - (dont get me started on the cost of daycare:eek: ) Anyway.... I LOVE my job and wouldnt be happy if I couldnt work. After all - i did go to school for 19 years of my life!! I am a clinical social worker working with people with mental retardation and other special needs. Mostly I do therapy, run groups, talk about *** education, help familys find services and work the system, and speak to newly diagnosed familys. ITS GREAT!!! (By the way - will do therapy for dis-members for scrapbook supplies:rolleyes1 ) Plus the bonus is that in October i get to go with 11 adults with MR to disney (for free and get paid for it) since i am the Disney queen here at work. We are going to have so much fun:banana: !!!
    I have been scrapbooking now for about 9 years - plus i do so many other crafts - quilting, beading, sewing,..... if its crafty there is a good chance i do it or have tried it.:rolleyes:
    Other than that this is my life... Oh by the way... I hate to say this but DH is not a disney freak like me. My father lives and breaths disney... but not DH. He actually said "It will be another 5 years before we go back:scared1: " My reply was "Well, I will make sure the kids and I send you a postcard telling you we miss you.:rolleyes1
    I will talk him into going sooner - but for now I will get my fix in October (and we had trips in 2005 and 2006.
    :welcome:
    to all the new people

    That's soo funny about the leftie thing! I should have been one, but my mom forced the rightie on me....yeah, I'm from "back in the day"

    Fine details like painting, beading, sewing, writing I do rightie. BUT I do everything else leftie...shake tubes at work, reach for things, open things...and when I teach, I can go in with either hand to show a stroke for painting...

    Will the poll have a choice for "bothie" :lmao:

    Hello! I'm Christina, 28. I live in HOT and MUGGY South Florida. I'm about a 3 hour drive to the World. My DBF and I have been together for 2 years, no kiddos for me, but I have a niece (5) and nephew (18 months) who I dote on. My niece moreso than my nephew since she's local. I've been scrapping since 2000 when I started with CM. It's only in the past year or 2 I've broken away from the CM style.

    On top of scrapping, I make cards, love to alter stuff, play with beads a bit and clay a bit (usually Christmas ornaments).

    I'm a reality TV junkie and a theater junkie and I'm right handed

    Hi ladies,
    I'm Joy and I live in small town Massachusetts. I've been married to DH for 5 years (today!) and we have a 2.5 month old son. I teach special education and so have been completely spoiled by having the whole summer off. My DH is currently a student and a part time paramedic so he also had most of the summer off. Lovely and wonderful, especially with a new babe in the house.
    When I'm not scrapbooking, I'm out walking in the woods, taking photographs, or getting lost in a good book. Lots of fantasy and science fiction. I WILL manage to keep reading often, even with a babe in the house. It's my sanity and escape from everything.

    I'm Hope, 31, married for 9 years, SAHW (wife, no kids). We live in Scottsdale, AZ, but are moving to the Denver, CO area hopefully next March. I've been scrapping for about 8 years, and it took me 6 of those years to finish our Honeymoon scrapbook. My parents retired to FL almost 2 years ago, and my Mom works at the MK, so I get to go WDW quite a bit. Aside from scrapping, my other craft hobby is cross-stitching.

    Hello! I'm Abby, 23, from Michigan.

    I sew (mostly quilting, though I'm making my MNSSHP costume!), scrapbook, do beaded jewelry, paint, take photographs .... there isn't enough time to do everything that I like to do!

    btw, I'm RIGHT handed!

    Believe it or not I registered for the Dis in January, but was always a little apprehensive about posting. Well, yesterday was a first . . . and now I'm hooked. So now for the intro:

    My name is Stephanie, I am a wife and mom to 3 boys (8, 6 and 4). Other than my family, I have 2 other loves in life; Disney & Scrapbooking. I officially became a Disney nut on my 1st trip when I was four years old. Every time I go back, I feel like I'm four years old again. I began scrapbooking about 5 years ago, and I'm still going strong with albums for the boys, the family, the Disney vacations, and much much more.

    I guess that about sums me up. Thanks for reading.

    Hello to all of the new people!! This is a great group with fabulous talent!!

    I have been married for almost 13 years, & DH & I have a DD6 with Spina Bifida! We homeschool (yes, I am a glutton for punishment!!:rotfl:) and I work part time for Procter & Gamble as a merchandiser. I have been an avid scrapper for over 10 years now. I live across the Mississippi from St Louis.

    And here's my confession... My name is Carrie, & I am a Disney-aholic! Where do I sign up for the 12 step program?:lmao: I have been to Disney 5ish times, but I got to share my love for WDW with DH & DD last year & it was wonderful!!

    Look forward to meeting you all soon!!:thumbsup2

    Hi everyone, I'm Lisa and a 43 SAHM, Have my DH and DD who's 7. We live in a small town Salida (just across the tracks from Modesto) CA. DH and I have been married almost 10 years (Oct) and together 14. We have moved around the county 36 (yes it's correct) times due to his job of building golf courses.

    DD and I are total Disney FREAKS, DH not so much but he does go with us occasionally. We are spending our 10th anniversary in DLR for MHT with DD, yes my non-disney hubby :love: me alot! also planning our 5th WDW trip (DD 3rd) in Jan and have gone to DLR 22 times since 2003 (have AP's since 2004) we only live 5 hours away by car, so makes weekend trips pretty easy.

    I keep busy with volunteering at DD classroom and library, parent club activities, scrapbooking, running DD around for her activities, the :laundy: and house drugery and since DH just started up his on golf course reno company (doing LOTS of travelling) I keep out of trouble (most days) my time Dissing :surfweb: is my get away time along with scrapping. Big Survivor, Greys and Dancing with the Stars fan, can't wait for the new season to start.

    For all you other Disneyaholics, come, join and FEED your addictions with your other enablers:rotfl2: :lmao: :rotfl2:

    Have a :dance3: day.

    Lisa :flower3:

    I'm here!! I was reading these at work (again with the crappy, no-posting thing!!)

    I'm Brooke, I'm 30 (I'll be 31 in Sept.) and I live in Maryville, TN, with my wonderful DH. We've been married for almost 8 years (today is the 9 year annivesary of our 1st date!). We don't have kids yet, but we have 2 cats and 3 dogs who are our furbabies! I started scrapping about 8 years ago, in order to get my MIL to like me. . .that didn't work, but I stayed with the scrapping!! I am WAY behind right now b/c I went through a period of time about 4 years ago where I didn't do anything. . .trying to remedy that now--as well as feeding my swap addiction!!

    I work as a guidance counselor at the high school in the town where I grew up (about 25 miles from where we live). It's never, ever a dull job!!

    DH & I are Disney freaks, and this September, we are going on our 10th Disney trip together since 2002. We joined DVC in June 2006, and we love it! We're taking my mom and dad this September--they haven't been since I was 7, and that was a one-day trip. We're planning to have a BLAST!!

    Our boards here are my sanity break--I have made so many good friends here (even if they are in my computer!), and it's a great bunch of people!!!

    Welcome to all of our sort-of newbies!! :thumbsup2
