Introducing myself

Hello All!

I am a new member although I've been receiving the email newsletter for sometime.

My name is Lourdes I live in Azusa, California, I am 29 years old.

I have three kids, Jessica (11), Melissa (5) and Kenneth (3).

I work long hours as an Account Manager and commute 2-3 hours a day, depending on traffic.

I enjoy cooking and trying new things in the kitchen, I love to read and take classes at my local community college (and recently at an online university).

I love learning new ways to save money on one, only to spend it on other things (shame on me, I know)!

Lourdes

Once again welcome to the family

Hello Everyone!

My name is Samantha. I am 28 and have one son who is 6. We live with my fiance in a rural area in Central Pa.

I am a stay at home mom who does work by setting my own hours. I am an Independant Avon rep.

I enjoy setting up at fleamarkets to sell Avon and the crafts i make.
I relax by doing some cross-stitch or making pot holders and dishcloths. When I am in the mood I set down and work on a afgan.
I am always looking for new craft ideas and ways to save money.

I look forward to getting to know some of you.

Welcome Samantha,
Frankie here in very very hot Fl.
I love to do crafts of all sorts. I make a lot of my own Christmas gifts. I had much rather get a hand made gift than a bought one.
I keep a file of things that you can make.
Right now I am working on a quilt for My sis for her Christmas. I had enough material of the same patteren to make her two matching pillows. So far it looks real good. Hope when I finish, it will look even better.
All for now
Frankie

GRRRRrrr!!-Hi Frankie,

I just wrote a post to you, and about to sign off when I hit a wrong key, and POOF--it's gone. So, here I are again.

I know what you mean about the heat. I love to work in my yard, so have to begin early in the morning, and sometimes I am out for hours, heat, or no heat. Other times I'm back inside in two hours. It depends on how much energy I have at the time.

Today I bought some more Periwinkles to replace those I lost from all our recent rains. They all drowned, and pots all are empty.So, I'll try again. I have a lot of trees in the yard, and there are roots going all through the place. I am surprised our grass still is growing under them. I just am not successful with trying plants under them, as there are too many roots, so gave up on that. Well, thanks for your post. Nice to hear from you. I love this Family Corner, don't you?

Hi Samantha,

Do you do well making money and flea markets or just do it because it is fun.

Just curious.

Welcome aboard.

Hi Samantha,

I do love this board. I know if you needed to know something, someone out there could come up with a good answer.
I have files on what to use salt for and stain removers. Now just remembering which file what thing is in is another thing.
I collect recipes and do love to cook. I am so used to cooking for more than 6 people. Now that my family is deciding what to do with their lives, before long there will be only 4 of us here.
I will have to learn to cut back on the cooking. Of course you never know when the kids will stop by for a good meal or two.
I have an open door policy here but have limits and structure so my children know when is a good time or not. Stop in for a glass of cold tea or a quick chat or even a meal but they know my limit.
It has been so hot some of my plants have also gone on to plant heaven. Watering does not seem to help here.
Until later
Frankie
