Default "Hi ya'll" from Covington, Louisiana

Hi everyone. I am here because my SU! demonstrator reccomended it as a place to go when I become a demonstrator myself - so I thought I would check it out - can I say O.M.G.?!?!?! truly. this place is incredible.

I am the stay-at-home-mom of a little angel of a boy who will be 2 in June. He is slowly reaching the place where I am able to scrap while he's awake - but only in snatches. My mom and all my aunts and a couple of cousins are into scrapping at different levels and to different degrees.... I seem to be the only one who likes to get complicated and create one-of-a-kind masterpieces.

I live with my hubby, mom, son, and 7 cats (of which only three am I financially responsible for-the others are mom's). Mom and I share most of our supplies, enabling us to have more collectively than we would apart. Seemed the way to go since we are in the same house. We share a craft/sewing room - we are both into other forms of crafting besides scrapping, although this seems to be the predominant feature of the room at the moment, besides the four sewing machines (we both quilt).

My wonderful hubby is very indulgent/forgiving/supportive of all of my hobbies/addictions, which include horses, book collecting, quilting, crochet/knitting, quilling, gardening, and hoarding family antiques (regardless of usefulness or worth). Also collecting toys my son isn't old enough for yet...

Thinking about becoming a SU! demonstrator toward the end of the year.... I am also the financial juggler of the family so have to work that in somewhere...

Anyway - very glad to be here, and I look forward to having all this talent rub off on me!!!!

Hi and welcome from New Zealand, which is a LOT to your south! Yay for your understanding hubby, and how wonderful to be able to share your crafty stuff with your mum. Yes, we in the far south spell mum differently from you 'northener's!

LOL! Saying things differently is what I love about y'all- I've often said I was born in the wrong country. Within 10 min or less of talking to someone with your accent, I have picked it up. I could listen to it all day long! New Zealand is in my top five places to visit. Scenery!

Howdy! I couldn't resist your "Hi, y'all!", since I frequently use "y'all" in everyday speak here in Texas.

Yep! I think you're going to love it here! We've plotted & planned so it becomes a bit of an addiction of its' own. Welcome aboard! *wink*wink*
