    Hello, my name is Jackie and I am a newbie to the swirly group. I started scrapbooking about 15 years ago, but took about a year hiatus after my divorce, but am back full force! I was not able to have children but I have an 11 year old niece and a new great nephew that I love to scrap about! I also love to travel and get to do a lot of it with my job, so I have started scrapping about that as well. I have a pretty stressful job (I have 50 women that report to me…lol) so scrapping is a real release for me. I sometimes joke that I am a scrap collector because I can't seem to get enough of all the blingy goodies and I seem to spend as much time collecting as actually getting layouts finished! I really like to focus on the memories behind the pictures so joualing is an important piece of my layouts. I have to be honest, you all do such beautiful layouts I think I will be doing a lot of scrap lifting from you! I am excited to be a part of your group-you seem like a fantastic group of women! I have received one monthly kit so far and can't wait to start playing with all my goodies, but they are so pretty I have found myself just looking at them, afraid to dig in! I live in Texas, but am originally from Wisconsin, which is where all of my family is located. I guess that about covers it…lol!

            Nice to meet you, Jackie! As the other ladies have said, you'll fit right in here. Scrappifting's a great way to go – I'm always surprised how someone else's work can give you inspiration and by the time your LO's done it's morphed into something else entirely.

              Hello Jackie!! Welcome to the family!!

              "Some cars look like they're going fast when they're standing still. The Camaro looks like it's going to beat you unconscious, put you in a silly hat, invite a couple of other Camaros over to take photos of you, then e-mail them to all your friends and co-workers. Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."

                A big Texas welcome, Jackie!!! You just heard from Lil' Mimi….I'm Big Mimi! Actually I live in San Angelo…not too far from Abilene. We are so glad to have another Texas Gal in Swirlyville! I think we are all scrap collectors. I don't think I've used up but one or two kits in almost 2-1/2 years! I might need something down the line and can't part with it right now. Glad you are here!

                It's OK, Lil Mimi…..No one has ever heard of San Angelo. We're 90 miles south of Abilene. They have a big M store there that I used to visit before I had to fill up the Beast twice to make one round trip! LOL!
