Reintroduce Yourself

Hi y'all,

I am very new at this site and still trying to navigate through it all--lots of cool parts. I already introduced myself a few days ago in the initial Introduction post but then I just saw this one so here's a bit more about me.

1. I live in sunny Southern California, but we are currently under our October gloom. [edit: November]
2. I live with my husband, my best friend.
3. I've done some regular scrapbooking, but this is really my first real attempt at digital scrapping--specifically for family history pages.
4. My go-to recipe is probably Costco salmon--it's easy to thaw and cook, and it's a healthy choice.

It's great to be here!


Hi, Helen, Thanks for the Hugs and welcome!

1&2) I live in Pennsylvania with my husband, daughter (8), and 5 fish.

3) I started digital scrapping 8 years ago to document my daughter's life. Previous to that I basically just hoarded physical scrapping materials. I've been putting scrapping on the back burner because my laptop was old and clunky and couldn't load photoshop elements to do what I needed to do. I got a new computer today so I hope to get back into the hobby!

4) Fried Pork Chops and Apples

Season and pan fry 4-6 pork loin chops.
Slice 3-4 apples (I like Honeycrisp and I do not peel them), and an onion. Once the chops are 75% cooked remove them from the pan, add a few pats of butter, the onions, and the apple slices. Cook onions and apples for 3-5 minutes. After a few minutes of cooking pour in 1/2 cup chicken broth to deglaze the pan, a few spoons of brown sugar (to taste), a sprinkle of cinnamon, and the pork chops back in. Cook until your broth has thickened and your chops are completely cooked through.

Thanks for saying hi again!

Hi, I'm Janey.

I haven't posted here for about five years!

I live in Melbourne, VIC Australia, but I did spend the first two years of my marriage in Evergreen, CO, USA!

I live with my hubby of 20 years, and best friend of 25 years, Adrian.
We have 5 children - Toby (16), Meg (14), Maisie (12), Buzzy/Justin (11) and Nathalie (8). Our God-daughter, Astara (12), also spends a lot of time with us - more time with us than with her actual family - that we usually include her as well! Before Covid turned the world topsy-turvy, we often hosted students from Japan.

Life with 5 or 6 children is never boring, that's for sure!

We have 5 fur babies as well - two cats called Bear and Coraline, two rats called Pocky and Mochi, and a bunny called Smokey.

I stared digital scrapbooking in 2005 when my firstborn, Toby, was a newborn. I love the convenience of it, and that I don't have to spend hundreds of dollars on equipments, etc ... I just use Paint.Net for my pages.

I'm having trouble thinking of a go-to recipe, as my husband is the cook in the family, and I am the taxi service! Our daughter, Maisie, is probably the best cook/baker in the family, and her signature dish is GF sticky toffee pudding! Our family's favourite dinner dish is baja steak bowl x

Hi, Janey, I'm amazed you have time to scrapbook!!! What a world you must live in with all that going on. So nice to have you with us!

Thanks for saying hi again Janey!

Where are you in the world? I'm Alli and I live on the eastern shore of MD smiley
Who lives with you in your house? My husband and two teens, one 18 and one 17.
How long have you been scrapping? I've been scrapping since 2006!
A go-to recipe, something you cook all the time: My favorite is chili, a recipe from my MIL. Here's the recipe:
Betty's Chili
1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained
1 large can of tomato sauce
2 small cans of red kidney beans
1 med onion, chopped
1 toe of garlic, minced
1 cup of water
1 Tbsp of chili powder
Brown ground beef in large pot, drain. Add the onion, garlic, and tomato sauce for 3-5 min, until onions are transparent. Stir in tomato sauce, water and spices. Heat until boiling and turn down to med-low heat. Add kidney beans and cook for about an hour, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender and "mush" when scraped to the side of the pot! Enjoy!
Optional toppings:
grated cheddar cheese
sour cream
green onions
Fritos, crushed smiley

Thanks Alli!

Hello everyone! My name is Jennyfuur and I am 37 years old. My Sweetheart and I just bought a home in the middle of nowhere Utah a year ago. We both grew up in Utah and we were lucky enough to leave for about five years and live in a travel trailer on an island in the Puget Sound in Washington. It is so freeing to get rid of almost everything you own and live so minimally. We learned a lot and changed our mindset and outlook on life.

Now that we are back in Utah we are finding many new adventures and places. We have one son who is 17. We lost one of our fur babies right before we moved and one a few months ago, but we just adopted a new furry bundle of joy. She is about 14 weeks old and a heeler golden doodle mix. It is weird to be back in the puppy stage after 15 years since the last one!

I have been scrapbooking for most of my life and digital scrapbooking for probably ten+ years. I have been enjoying Pixel Scrapper for 3 years now. I use GIMP for everything I do.

I just joined but I'll do the re-hello anyway! smiley

1. Where are you in the world: Just outside Seattle

2. Who lives with you in your house: My teen son, my young adult son & my happily unmarried boyfriend of 25 years (lol). Easier just to say husband at this point.

3. How long have you been scrapping. Traditional since the early 90's but converted to digital in 2017.

4. A go-to recipe, something you cook all the time. I make a great lemon pepper shrimp and pasta dish:

2 lbs shrimp
Pasta of your choice
1/2 carton of ckn broth
2T minced garlic
1/2c butter
Bag of frozen peas
Lemon juice
Black pepper
Lemon pepper seasoning
Old bay seasoning

1. Cook pasta according to directions
2. In skillet, add butter, stock, peas. Cook on medium until butter is melted
3. Add seasonings & lemon juice until you get the flavor you like
4. Add shrimp until cooked through
5. Add pasta, toss & serve with salad & garlic bread

I am a returning scrapper. Began digital scrapping around 15 years ago after paper scrapping for awhile. Got lost in life a few years ago and gave it up for awhile. Moved to the country and spent most of my time gardening and all that goes with country life. Then I had a stroke almost three years ago which made it difficult to do much scrapping. Now I'm able to pick up where I left off and am ready to get back to scrapping.

I'm in east Texas - in the piney woods! No neighbors, lots of deer and squirrels and birds.

My son owns the land; we own our mobile home together.

We have an apricot standard poodle (his) and a black toy poodle (mine). They are both almost 12 but still very active.

Using Paint Shop Pro I combine my genealogy with scrapping to produce books for my family. As a result now my sister has fallen victim to scrapping as well. smiley

As for a recipe I cook all the time? My son and I are on a carnivore diet at the moment, so I cook meat and eggs - no veggies or fruit. So my cooking is strictly whatever meat I want at the time. But way at the top of this thread is a recipe I commented on two years ago that used to be our go-to dish. It will be again someday.

Btw, I'm about to become a great grandmother to triplets! A boy and two girls, so I'll have lots of things to scrap soon! They have a 2 year old big brother who is excited to add them to the family.

Thanks for saying hi Linda! Triplets!!!! smiley

Yep. They anticipate delivering them Mar 22 so it's getting close. My grandson is beside himself with joy. I hope to scrap a lot with those babies and their big brother. He's two!

Can't wait to see the layouts smiley
