Happy New Year to all of you! I am "knzus" (a play on the word "Kansas" because of the way I'm teased about how I pronounce my home state) -- my real name is Diana. I'm a wife, mom, stepmom, grandma, and stepgrandma...oh, and a daughter, of course. I work at home as a web developer (one of my sons is my partner). My hubby and I have been married since 1995 and have 8 children between us from our previous marriages (mine are two boys), and we have 4 grandchildren (so far). In no particular order, my interests include genealogy (hubby and I organized our county's genealogical society in 2005, which I "lead" and am the "forever" webmaster for it), gardening, photography (using my inexpensive Wal-Mart digital camera), sewing, web development, and now scrapbooking. Together, hubby and I enjoy camping and hiking -- not the endurance stuff as we both have medical problems, but just leisurely time together walking trails and the like. Since we're both into genealogy to a great extent, we should have a bumper sticker that reads "we brake for cemeteries." Haha! I guess I'm reaching a "milestone" in my life this month as my 50th birthday is January 22...apparently our kids are planning something for me -- they know I've never had a birthday party in my life and I've noticed lately that the talking stops when I enter a room if they're around. Hmmm...wonder if I need to worry. Well, anyway....
I'm really glad I joined our little community here -- I've already learned a great deal reading posts, tips, articles and such. Can't wait to try out all the neat ideas and wonderful "playthings" here!
Your friend in scrapping,
knzus (aka Diana)
