      My name is Donna, and I'm from the west side of Cleveland, Ohio. I'm married with 2 grown children and a 9-year-old son. I work at a machine embroidery shop, and I bake and decorate wedding cakes part-time.

      I subscribed to Swirlydoos today, and like all the new members, I can't wait to get my first kit! My timing seems to be bad, though. I don't think I'll be getting my first kit until March. 🙁

      I have been scrapbooking since 2002 or so (getting my start at a 'Creative Memories' home show). I joined a local scrapbooking store's discussion board–posting lay-outs, entering contests–until they went out of business. By then, I was in love with embellishments and sketch challenges, so CM wasn't enough for me. I then took a class that taught new techniques each month, and started experimenting and being more artistic.

      Whenever possible, I attended Crop Nights (at Archiver's) & Scrap Retreats and subscribed to several scrapbook magazine subscriptions. Then Archiver's closed, the magazines stopped being published and the local retreats were becoming scarce. However was I to continue to feed my scrapbook addiction?

      I now meet with a Crafting Club each month, but I need the papers and the bling and the social interaction from others who live, love, and breathe scrapbooking! I checked out 22 on-line monthly clubs. I had no idea there were so many! But the lay-outs and the kits I saw here spoke to me more than the others.

      I look forward to getting to know you and participating in all the activities! Right now, I'm going to go browse through the gallery…

        Welcome to Swirlydoo's Donna!! If you love challenges, you will love what the girls have going each month

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."

                Welcome Donna, you have definitely come to the right place because we are all scrap obsessed, live breathe and eat cheap Ramen noodles as a result of our obsession!! Please join in our challenges, you don't even have to use our kits for most of the challenges so you can play with us while you wait along with the rest of us for the March kit!
