Default Day 8 - Game Get to Know You




Hi everyone and Welcome to Day Eight of the Birthday Party!
I bet everyone is having a wonderful time and there are a lot of new faces here at the "O"! So we would all like to get to know you better! Today's Game is all about that and so I would like you to please list 11 things about yourself. It can be anything from where you live, when you were born to what your favourite movie is etc. Anything at all so we can all get to know you better! I think that there could be a visit or two from the Birthday Fairy here also. So lets get to know each other what do you say? I will start...

1. My Name is Trudy
2. I was born and raised in Duncan, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada
3. I am married to the love of my life - Gary
4. I have two grown children - Heather and Jason
5. I have three, almost four (new baby in July) grandchildren
6. I belong to a Hiking group called the re-treads we hike every Wednesday
7. I love to have a glass of wine with my supper every night.
8. I would love to travel more and see the rest of the world.
9. I love being here at O everyday and start my day off here every morning .
10. I am the youngest of 7 children.
11. I spent 28 years living in Saskatchewan for my husbands job, I am so happy to be Home again.

Ok now its your turn, tell us about YOU!! Anything at all will do.

Yippee! I love getting to know all of you better!

I am going to try and do a mix of some things you might already know about me and some that you might not.

  1. Real Name: Christine- but I don't feel any "connection" to it or to Chris.
  2. I have 2 kids, Scott (20) and Caitlyn (18 ), 2 Godchildren, 2 cats, 2 dogs, 2 rats (Caitlyn's) and 2 snakes (Scott's)
  3. I have been married for almost 24 years to the love of my life and best friend Gary
  4. I HATE buttons- IRL and digitally. Many of you know that already about me
  5. My favorite places to be are Disney World and down the shore.
  6. I have 6 tattoos. (I had to go and mentally count them!)- ha! Just recounted, I forgot one! I have 7 tattoos.
  7. I live in the mountains of northern NJ and we have black bears that will hang out in my yard.
  8. I talk to my plants and apologize to them when I am pulling off dead leaves or flowers. When Caitlyn was little, she would sing to the plants in my garden.
  9. I have Late Stage Lyme disease. My DH does to and is permanently disabled from it. My kids were born with it but are currently in remission. I try to be a Lyme advocate when I can and Scott and I are in a documentary about Lyme Disease.
  10. My favorite drinks are coffee, water, and wine.
  11. I have 2 degrees, one in Psychology, and one in Elementary Education. I was a preschool teacher before I became a mom.

Ellen Me too
Trudy... we'll be welcome at home too
Chris Not a favorite. I always try new things : for the last one I used white flour, oat bran and the sweet chestnut flour, and cook it in an earthenware pot in the oven.

That's a really great idea, so here I go:

1. My name is Miranda
2. I am Dutch, born in Rotterdam
3. I am living for more than 35 years in France, Normandie.
I came for my study and never went back.
4. I have two daughters, young adults of 18 & 24 years old. My youngest is still at home, and the
oldest one returns home almost every weekend.
5. I'am doing my last job ( in the social wellfare) for almost eleven years. It's an almost fulltime job, so
my me/scrap time is counted.
6. I love my garden but have not enough time to get everything alright, so most of the time nature is
is living his own life, and my plants alike.
7. I should like to return more often to Holland, and see my family. Twice a year is not enough.
8. I am member of a choir, so I'm busy with that also every week. And we are on stage several times a
year. [URL="http://www.coupdechant.fr/"]( there are some videos on our blog, if you'r interested)
9. I started scrapbooking some years ago. I became a member of The Daily Digi Files,and became
familiair with a lot of designers and the scrapcommunity. It took me some time to show my first
layout here at the Oscraps, ( already one year ago!) but I'm happy I did and ready to go on to the
next 11th birthday.
10.I adore that this community is very international, so without travel inreal I can "meet" other people
and cultures throughout the forum and gallery. very nice!
11. I adore litterature, books of all kind and reading them of course. Nevertheless I'm more and more
often falling in sleep doing so. That's quite ennoying, and it really takes me some time to finish a
book!

How interesting! I will do mine when the computer is on, too hard on the tablet.
So Sandrine, do you have twins?

How neat is this!!! Often wondered where people were from.

1. I was born in Lewisburg, PA, but moved to Danbury CT at age 5 and grew up there, and am now living in Alpena, MI.

2. I grew up on prison property as my dad was a guard and the guards lived in houses right on the property. I was use to seeing prisoners around me all the time.

3. I was married to my best friend (now widowed) and have 5 children ages 57, 55, 50, 45, and 40. It seemed like we would no sooner get the youngest in school and I would break the news to hubby that I was pregnant again!!!

4. At this moment, I have 15 grandchildren, and at last count, 16 great grandchildren. They are scattered all over the country and in England and Australia. Love them all to pieces!!!!!

5. Went back to school at age 54 to (FINALLY) get my college degree! What a graduation celebration that was with all my children and grandchildren around me!!

6. Spent 20 plus years with the American Red Cross in Disaster Services. My last assignment was Hurricane Katrina before I retired.

7. Went to professional clown school. My name was Sweetheart the Clown and I visited children in hospitals and also nursing homes.

8. Started my own cake decorating business while living in Florida (we lived there for 21 years) and have made hundreds of wedding cakes. I don't like to cook but I love to bake!

9. I love all sorts of crafts and am always starting some new project. I also love to crochet but don't care for knitting.

10. My two "babies" right now are a Schnauzer/ min. doberman mix dog named Cupcake and a crazy cat named Max who loves to torture Cupcake!!

11. I started paper scrapping in 2003 to document my hubby's life after losing him. Started dabbling in digi about 9 years ago, took some online lessons and was hooked!! I remember hearing the word "brush" for the first time and thought they were talking about an actual "brush", and thought "how strange, why would they use a brush for digi scrapping!"

So thats my story and I am sticking to it!!!!
