After lurking for a week I am in love, and have signed up for the monthly subscription. I'm so excited about joining you ladies, your LO's are truly beautiful. Nothing else I found matched the quality I've seen at Swirlydoos, and I'm so stoked to get my first kit. I've been papercrafting for the past 11 years, I was briefly a CM consultant but I enjoy making fussy, detailed layouts so that wasn't for me. I also love coloring with Copics and have been doing a lot of cardmaking lately.
I'm married to my high school sweetheart and we have three little boys, aged 5, 2.5 and 3 months. I am off on mateity leave until September 2012 and am hoping to have more scrapping time in the fall when my oldest starts school. Right now I'm limited to 15 minutes here and there during the day and if I'm lucky and bedtime goes well an hour or two at night.
Looking forward to getting to know you all!

Thanks! I'm excited; thinking about participating in one of the challenges once I get my kit. Nothing like jumping in with both feet.August 19, 2011 at 10:19 pm #132984

Welcome Jackie! You will love it here and jumping in is the only way to go. We are a very supportive, loving bunch! Check out the Round Robin challenge when you get a chance. It is a lot of fun!
P.S. Every kit comes with a sketch and we run that challenge from the 15th of the month to the 15th of the next. This way all of our inteational ladies can play along too! Can't wait to see your work with the kits.August 20, 2011 at 11:43 am #132993
Jackie, what a cute baby!!!!!
Welcome to Swirlydoos!!! As you know, you're going to love your kits; you're also going to love the forums, full of inspiration and caring and a little silliness!!!!
I'll echo Lisa re: the challenges. We actually have five going on each month: along with the Sketch Challenge, the Round Robin, Angelica hosts the Butterfly Challenge where you're guaranteed to create a work of beauty and two SGC Challenges, hosted by members who volunteer to come up with great and creative ideas for us to meet.August 20, 2011 at 1:45 pm #132994August 20, 2011 at 5:27 pm #132995
