Happy mb anniversary!

I used to be pretty active on these boards... until I had my daughter back in April. For some reason I can't log in to the mb from my Kindle which is about the only way I usually get to use the internet...

What's your go-to cartridge.. the one you use the most? Mine used to be Storybook. (I say used to because I haven't crafted in a long time.)

I'd love to enter your giveaway. Congratulations on your 1 year anniversary.

I'm a new Cricut user and excited about learning -- What do you think about using Design Studio and not the Craft Room?

married....Welcome back! Congratulations on your daughter. I remember when my guys were little...3 under 3, and I miss that time. It's cliche, I know, but it goes by so quickly. Day by day, hour by hour, it seems slow, but soon she will be 16 like my oldest, and you'll wish she could still fit in your arms. My go to carts are all 3 Paper Dolls and the 2 Create A Critters. I sell many children's cards, so I use those carts the most. I love Florals Embellished if I were to pick a fave.


mad55jed.....Welcome! I look forward to getting to know you. Sorry, I do not have DS, and have just started using CCR, so I am not the best person to ask. If you posted that question on this MB, I am sure you would get the answers you need.


Thanks for entering. Blessings, GG.

ksqueenb.....Thanks! I am having fun too. I almost feel like I am on Oprah or being interviewed by Barbara Walters...lol! My favorite ongoing swaps are the Monthly Embossing Swap and the Monthly Cut RAK. I have met such wonderful people through both of them. They are a great way to get embossed pages and cuts from folders and carts you do not have. Plus, they make you use carts and folders you may not have used in a while. And, selfishly, I love to do for and give to others. Aside from those, my fave swap of all time was an alphabet swap hosted by BCSQ. Participants signed up to do cuts starting with letters of the alphabet, plus there was a number category. You made cuts for each person in the swap. I cannot remember how many people played, I think it was 10, so we made 10 of each cut.....270 cuts in all. It was fun to figure out what cut I would do for each letter, and to see what other people had chosen to do. The hostess made certain no one did the same cut for the same letter. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun as well. I used several of the cuts in my card classes that I teach for the kids at my church. And, it made me look through all my handbooks...did not have many at the time, so I got really familiar with what was on each cart. Someone really should do one of those again...hint, hint.... GG

GG:

I second your hope for another alphabet RAK like BCSQ hosted.

No question, but just a big HUG for all you do for everyone. You support and encouragement before my son went off to band camp gave me the comfort I needed--and you were absolutely right about everything! I keep you and your family in my prayers every night.

EyeBoop.....The adhesive I use is the zig 2 way pen. I use every size available, depending on my project. It sticks well and bonds fast. For things that need a little more oomph, I use E-6000. Love it for my hat and stick pins. GG


Lesalovesherboys....I am so glad I could help you. Thank you for reaching out in friendship to me. I treasure you.


Thanks for joining in on the fun! Blessings, GG

Jooniper......I Cor. 4-8. I love many verses, and have written them all in my heart, but this one is truly how I try to live my life...being the love that is described in those verses.


ScrapbookSue.....thank you, how sweet of you to say that. Yes, I do other crafts. Painting is my first and forever love. My Grammy Ginia (could not say Virginia when I was little) taught me. I also enjoy crocheting, knitting, sewing, quilting, refinishing furniture, and just crafts in general. I will try just about anything!


Thanks to all who have entered so far. I have been choosing items for the box, and I hope whomever wins it will be delighted. Blessings, GG.

Happy Anniversary!!

My question...do you have a big, fancy craft room where you crank out all your cuteness, or where do you craft? I'm trying to gather up ideas for my upcoming craft room remodel!

Have a wonderful day!

Cottage Rose......Thanks for entering! No, I do not have my own room In which to craft. I have a family of book readers, and a few years ago we turned our living room into a library/homework room. The walls are lined with bookshelves, and there is a nice sized old dining room table in the center of the room. It is not a large room, but it suffices for what we need. This is the room I craft in now. I have most of my paper crafting supplies stored on the shelves amongst all the books. The remainder of those supplies, plus my other craft items are stored in our basement and other nooks and crannies around our house. Our library is the first room you see when you walk through the front door, and it has no doors, so I cannot just leave my projects out. Plus, my boys do their homework and school projects there, and DH occasionally uses the table for a project as well. So, I am constantly having to clean up my projects , put everything away, then get it all back out when I have time to craft again. Sometimes I spend more time getting things out and putting them away than actually crafting..LOL ! However, at least I do have a space, even if I have to share.

We are in the process of finishing our basement ourselves, and will be moving some of the library down there. I will have a nice area to store my craft supplies in, but will still be using the room upstairs to actually craft. I just cannot give up the wonderful natural light it gets almost all day long. The boys will have an area in the basement to do their thing in, so I will have the room upstairs mostly to myself! Exciting! GG

Yes indeedy, I would like to sign up for your anniversary prize. My question was: what is your location "too far from the farm" mean, but then I read the last reply where you said that you like being on a family farm so I guess that answers that. So my new question is: you have 3 boys, I have 3 girls, do you think there is much difference between raising boys vs girls? Flapper Laugh

ottergirl.....you are right about "too far from the farm". My DH and I both grew up on farms...he on his parents, and I spent much time on both grandparents' farms. We want to build a house on his parents' farm for our golden years. And, though we love our home, we still feel just slightly out of place living in the suburbs.

Now for your second question, and all please remember this is my OPINION based on my EXPERIENCE, and is certainly not meant to apply to everyone in all of time. Now the fine print out of the way, YES indeedy I do think there is a difference in raising boys and girls. My oldest sister has 2 girls, my younger, 1, and my SIL has 1 boy and 1 girl. I, of course, and thank the good Lord, have 3 boys. I have also provided childcare in one form or another since before my own guys were born, worked in a day care center, and been a substitute teacher for grades K - 12 for 11 years, so I think I have a good handle on what it is like to raise both boys and girls. I have always been a tom boy. My closest friends in school were guys, and I have always felt more comfortable around the Y chromosomes than those of my own sex. That is why I said "thank the good Lord." I am not sure I would have known what to do with a girl, and you will see why after I finish my answer.

When they are little, boys take much more energy than girls do. Mine were constantly on the move, even before they could walk. They wiggled and giggled and rolled and wormed and scrunched wherever and whenever they could. Once they were crawling than walking, I had escape artists. Baby gates were useless...they would hook their little toes in the holes, and over the gate they would climb. Or, in my middle son Collin's case, just throw themselves against the gate until it fell over or broke or both. There was a lot of running and giggling and trying to reach the summit of Stair Mountain.

And my nieces? Sitting in the middle of all the chaos playing with the same doll they had been playing with for the last 10 minutes, and just now needing a little attention! Now I may be exaggerating a bit, but this really is the way it was most days in my tiny little apartment.

As the kids got older, when they could talk and carry on a conversation, and voice their opinions, things started to change a little. The boys still were rambunctious, but with the ability to explain what they needed or share what they were playing, they were not needlessly destructive. The girls started to care about how they looked and what they were wearing, and who was friends with whom. Aunt Patty had to learn to braid hair, and be more careful how she said things and the words she used. I could not talk about how much I loved their chubby little cheeks. Or the freckle on the tip of a nose. I would upset the chubby cheeked little girl because I was calling her fat, and the freckle could be a birthmark that may mean she was horribly disfigured...LOL Oh, and do not get me started on the arguments, or if I had to punish someone. The guys were over it in five minutes, and off to be Bond, James Bond. The girls, OOH MAN, the girls would be upset with Aunt Patty for the rest of the day. I had hurt her feelings, and had made her feel bad.. If I was lucky, I would be forgiven by the next time I saw herLOL !

Now that everyone is a teenager or almost a teen, I think the girls are definitely more challenging. Peer pressure is the number one reason for that, OR perhaps I should say SOCIETAL pressure. Girls have to look a certain way, act a certain way, talk a certain way, etc. And, though peer pressure has gotten more intense for boys over the past decade, it is still exponentially worse for girls. This post is getting long, so I will not go into all the reasons here, especially since many of them are just obvious.

So, yes, I think there is one major difference. I think boys are PHYSICALLY more difficult to raise, while girls are EMOTIONALLY more difficult. Now, I am not saying that a girl cannot physically be challenging, or a boy, emotionally. I just mean, in general, that boys take more physical energy, especially when young; girls take more emotional energy, especially when older. I do not necessarily think one is harder to raise than the other, just that they are, different. Those differences should be celebrated and prepared for, no matter which sex or how many with which you are blessed. Look to God for support and advice. Blessings, GG.
