About Me

Judy G.
I was raised in South Florida back in the years when it was a peaceful and wonderfully safe place to live. We lived a mile from the beach and could ride our bikes over the intercoastal bridge right to the best beach around. All my years of growing up I was a competitive swimmer and belonged to AAU. I granduated from Florida State University with a BS degree in nursing. I am recently retired but I'm thinking of going back to work to support my hobbies.

I Feel Like I Might Be Wasting My Time

Tomorrow is the last day that anyone can leave a comment on my blog to win my Random Vintage album, and so far, only three people have left any comments.  All three of these ladies were first time subbies.  It looks like I'm going to be sending this cherished album of mine to either Greece, the UK, or Australia.   What has happened to all of you who originally subscribed to my blog?

Awww I feel ya. But then again I am horrible when it comes commenting. Sometimes I will do loads and loads, and then other times I don't do many at all. I think it depends on my mood for the

I didn't see your original post for the giveaway, and I don't see an Archives list, so maybe other people missed it too. You can count me in. Maybe you want to extend your deadline, or go completely in the opposite direction and think about keeping the album. You put so much time and effort into it and it really turned out nice. You should keep it for yourself! It's a treasure. -- Pat N.

Well, I will leave a comment for you. Don't get discouraged. I did not see the first post either. Such a great album chance. Thanks. patnbobcuddy at gmail dot com

Hello, I'm sorry, I don't know your name, I thought it was Judy, but now I see (Lauraakim)? whatever...I have been told millions of times NOT to put my real name on the internet, but I am 65 years old and I think that the only way I can remain safe online is to use my own name and photo. That way if someone desires to impersonate me, they would have to look like me and the only one who did was my mother, who is gone, now. I was very much into genealogy for many years and unfortunately, that is a really easy way to have your ID stolen. (The whole Mother's maiden name thing).
Anyway, Hello, my name is Sharon Turner, and I just found you, here. I have YouTube on my television and I typed DIY Scrapbooking into the search and some of your videos came up. You were using my favorite paper from Graphic 45 - "Little Darlings" and as we are expecting our first new birth in this generation in our family, (we hadn't had one in over 14 years). We have all been really excited! This little baby boy will be my baby sister's first grandbaby and she is just "over-the-moon" with excitement!
On your "FEEDJIT" thingy, I am the one that says, (A visitor from Roseville, California viewed, "I Scrapbook, Therefore I Am......Broke." 13 hours 41 mins ago) I am not sure why it says I am from Roseville-though, that's down the road, I am actually from Citrus Heights.
I know I am way too late to the party for your great give-away, but I wanted you to know that I can relate to your frustrations. . . Some days I feel invisible, but please believe me, when I say, you are not wasting your time.
Never think that! Just as I found you, (& on a TV) one of the amazing things about the internet is the resources online stay online - others will also find you and just when you think that there is 'nobody' out there, you will be inundated with requests, comments, questions, and praises. Let me be one of the first. I enjoy reading about you life in TN. My husband is from the Cumberland Gap area, (Powell Valley is where his dad was raised). I have been to that Appalachian Museum, so that was really cool to see, thank you. I, also, have gorgeous Hydrangeas in my gardens, this year - & I, also, love birdsong, so we really are kindred spirits.
I really enjoy watching your videos, especially since you changed your camera configuration, before there was a large dead area in the left-front, and when you held up items for us to see - we couldn't - NOW we can! So much more enjoyable when you don't have to guess what something looks like. I found that I am losing my eyesight - so, I want to do as much of everything as I can while I can still see. Also, I want to congratulate you on your mini albums with those great spines! I love them & you make it SO easy to follow along. I don't have any of those fancy machines, but I can do nicely on my own.
I have only one request of you, is it at all possible for you to post some photos of the projects you are teaching?
Anyway, whoever you are, "Midnight Cropper", keep up the good work - we love you, (and your cat). I am so sorry about your puppy. I know what it is like to lose one, no matter the age.

I want to add my two penny's worth, too! (Sorry - originally from England!) I totally agree with Sharon above. I can see that you are still here, so I know you didn't give up. I can only say - I am so glad you didn't!
It would be such a shame to have missed you. I think your appeal maybe better suited to us 'older' scrappers, who enjoy the slower pace of teaching. Sometimes these young people are very talented, but are not able to teach others. Other times, they are in too much of a hurry, and I, for one, find it too rushed.
So again, please don't be discouraged any more. I am sorry to read (from Sharon) that you lost your dog (didn't see for myself) I know how difficult that can be.
Kindest regards Julie B
