New here!!

Postby rweckerly » Jan 21st, '13, 7:55 pm

Hi everyone! I am Rebekah and I am new to Cocoa Daisy..in fact, i have not even got my first kit yet! But I am anxiously awaiting!

I just got married in September to THE hottest man on earth and together we have 5 kidos ages 13 to 5. 2 boys and 3 girls We live in rural Pennsylvania and I am a stay at home mom. My father passed away in June and my mother just moved in with us over Christmas. My husband is in the process of designing her a new home which we will start building on our property in the next few weeks. We are happy she is with us but I will be very happy when her place is done! lol!!!

The kids are into just about everything including basketball, bikes and video games and give me plenty of photo ops!

I have been scrapping for a while now but I took the last 2 years off....life just got too crazy. I am so excited to be back to scrapping and to join this club!!! I shopped for a few months before I picked a club to join. I picked Cocoa Daisy because of the kits and the great pages made by the design team. I wanted to find a place where I would feel challenged and inspired.

Looking forward to getting to know you guys!

Rebekah

Welcome, Rebekah! It's so fun getting to know you by reading your introduction! I think you will love CD and the kits. The message board is so much fun, too, with so many of the designers posting whenever they can and the members, of course!

Hello **waving**

So excited that you chose us. I hope you will love being here as much as we do.
It's a really cozy and friendly scrappy home.

You sound so busy. I can't believe you find time with 5 kiddies.
Our Jody has 6 little ones and every month she impresses me heaps with what she creates.
I struggle with 2 around :)

Looking forward to getting to know you better x

Hi Rebekah! I took 2010 & 2011 basically off of scrapbooking because of life. It's shocking that it can get in the way of my creative time. heehee. It is so wonderful to be back into it again, and I know you will feel the same. We're glad to have you on board and can't wait to get to know you.

With that said, you weren't by chance on a design team back prior to 2010 where you? There was a Rebekah with 5 kids (which isn't unheard of, but isn't really all that common). Just wondering.

Welcome Rebekah, wow my husband and I have 5 kids together as well. Our 2 boys and his boy and 2 girls! The older three are married with children though. :) I am sure you are very, very busy! Lots to scrap about.
I think you will really like it here. The kits are gorgeous every month and everyone is really friendly and supportive.

Not sure if it was me or not! lol ... I have been on a few design teams but my hubby and I have only been together for 2 years. I do think I recognize a few names here, tho!

I have 2 kids (the 2 oldest) and he has 3. Honestly, I think after 3 its all the same! lol There is always someone fighting but there is always a few getting along and playing nicely. The oldest 4 are in school and the youngest is with his mother 50% of the time. Its hard to find time to scrap but I NEED it! Between laundry and running to school and ball games I manage to find time. But it did take me about 2 weeks to finish my last page!

Hi Rebekah! Welcome! Glad you have found your way back to scrapping, and to Cocoa Daisy! I am bracing myself for your screams when you get your first kit! You will LOVE it--like Christmas in a box!! (Not the theme, but the joyous feeling of childlike giddiness and glee!) Lol!
