    Hi everyone! I've been lurking for almost a week now, 5 days, 12 hours, 18 minutes, 22 seconds ago :o)
    I figured it was time to introduce myself.
    General stuff…I am 45, married 27 years, 3 kids 23, 19 and 18. The kids are all out of the house so we are empty-nesters with 2 extremely active cats. I live in the middle of nowhere and like it that way.
    Scrapping stuff….I started out as a stamper/card maker almost 20 years ago. I swore I would never scrapbook…too much stuff, not enough time…yadda yadda. I was wrong.
    I haven't done a lot of pages…still trying to find my style. I tried to be the noble scrapper…to just get a lot of pages done and preserve my family memories. But, bottom line is that I am in it for the art and creative outlet. I still think preserving those memories is a great idea…but it's not why I do what I do.
    I found Irene Tan's blog a while back…was totally blown away by her style and have been following her blog ever since.
    I have read about Swirlydoos several times…but didn't ever really look into it. I was in a kit club once, but I realize now, it was sooo not my style.
    I'm not sure where I saw it, but I saw Finnabair's LO from the last kit..Dream…and it was all over but the cryin'. I came to this site…saw more of the amazing talent and inspiration here…and I joined right then and there.
    What I see oozing from every layout here is what I think my style is. I love to smoosh ink around, I love Distress Inks, I love cutting things with my Cricut, I love messin' with inks and flowers and swirls and bling….and yep…I think I have come home.
    I have been spending nearly every spare minute trying to absorb everything here at Swirlydoos. I have ideas swirliing in my head. I dream about color combinations and layouts…I'm just so excited I can hardly stand it!!
    Soooo glad I found you all!!

Call me crazy, but I like that in a car."
