Can we do a roll call?

I don't know anyone besides my sister (I think), and you all say such nice things. Can everyone post a brief description of yourself so I kind of know who I'm talking to?
I'm Becca, 25. My DH is a youth pastor. My daughter will be 2 in December. I'm Lauren's little sister. I like crafty things, particularly those that involve doctoring up photos.

I'm Lauren, for those of you who know me by my pseudonym. Zann introduced me to the blogging world. Bec and I went to church with her and Farmwife a long time ago, and Zann and I have kept in touch through the years. I'm 31. I love gardening, flower arranging, and like scrapbooking and cardmaking. I am attempting to teach myself to crochet... it's ... going. sort of.

GREAT Suggestion Becca!! It's been a pleasure meeting you and Lauren.

I'm Madeline, or Mad or Madretz. I'm friends with Phinner in the real world and have known Nan for 2 years via blogging and Ragged nearly that long, too. My passion belongs to paper arts and photography but I'll try any kind of crafting once, do it obsessively for 8 months to 3 years then drop it like a hot potato.

Nan said...

Hey everybody, I'm Nan. I take credit for finding Madeline, Ragged, and Kat by bloghopping. I'm glad I liked the names of their blogs and decided to take a look! I met Phin next, then Emily, Farmie, and Zann, and later the rest of you. Zann is the only one I've actually met face to face.

I'm 60, married 39 years, have two children Rob and Cath. Both Hub and I are retired but babysit a lot with the three grandchildren. I retired from teaching...love kids, but I also love to write and craft.

Come visit me anytime. My address is

Hey Everyone –

I’m Linda, aka Phinner, phin, RG (for Running Goddess), and my superhero monikers are DeathGirlRunningGoddess and AquaJoggingDeathGirlPowerWaterNymph. I'm almost 44! Uh, I mean 29. and when I grow up, I want to be an artist! I like to make things with my hands and I’ve been doing crafts since I was a wee girl. I am an obsessive purchaser and hoarder of all things crafty. I’ve tried many types of arts and crafts, but now I mostly dabble in mixed media collage. I also like to take pictures of weird stuff, oh and family and friends. If I’m not crafting, I’m at the gym (In my past life, I was a distance runner) or outside taking a walk to Starbucks (which is my other obsession), or dreaming of meeting a significant other : .) I think everyone else covered how we all met. Or haven’t met.

Its so good to know you all!!!

And since Nan posted her blog address, here's mine too: http://www.phinsblog.blogspot.com

Girl said...

Hey there...hope I'm not to late to chime in. I am Miriam, aka Girl of the now-no-longer GirlGoneGreat. I am 32 and just got married this past September.

I found Nan through a blog writing contest that I actually saw on someone else's blog that I had found when I Googled my name one day (how's that for random).

Ragged Around the Edges said...

My turn. I'm Ragged Around The Edges (Ragged to all my people). I live in Kentucky, work in the public relations field and I must admit that my only contribution to this site is my knitting. Nan, Madretz and Phinner brought me here and offer incredible inspiration. . .

When I grow up, I want to create full time. . . and my first step toward that is my own creative space in our next house. . . a dream I will fulfill.

So glad you're posting.

You know me Becca! I use to see you at band concerts when you were in high school, but as Lauren mentioned we also use to go to church together along with Farm Wife:

But for those who don't know me in that way. I'm Suzanne but everyone calls me Zann. I'm a little over a month shy of 30. I'm a graphic designer/illustrator by trade and live in East Tn with my husband and dog. I've always loved crafting and believe my mother may be right in calling me a "frustrated inventor" if I had more knowledge of mechanics and science... I could be dangerous. But instead I let my inventive streak come out in less useful but much more fun crafts :P. Recently I've been obsessed with making hats.
The three places you can find me on the web:
zannli.livejournal.com
zannhu.blogspot.com
and http://www.nextdoordesign.com

FarmWife said...

Better late than never is my motto. I'm FarmWife or Farmie to some. I'm a 31 year old SAHM of 4 (yes, you read that right), and the daughter of a compulsive crafter.

Since my mother has dabbled in many things crafty, I guess you could say it runs in my veins. I sew a bit, stamp occasionally, make things with my kids, take pictures, cross stitch, and have the makings of a fabulous scrap book or two tucked under my bed (maybe I'll get to that one of these days).

You can read my adventures at www.farmwife7.blogspot.com

FarmWife said...

Oh, and I know Zann & Lauren from youth group about 15 years ago, & have met Ragged once upon a time.

15 years ago... man, that makes me feel old. but it's true!

emily said...

Aww man, I don't know where I've been. I've certainly not been creating lately.

Anyhow, I'm Emily. I'm at http://sweethomeemily.blogspot.com.I live in Utah with my husband and our two small ones. I'm blogfriends with all, never actually meeting any of y'all in real life. Maybe someday...
