Looking around the web for various state and local community-related sites and found this one. Don't see anything from my area posted. Perhaps there's others out there from my neck of the woods who simply haven't posted anything yet though.

Guess while I'm here I'll say hello and briefly introduce myself...

I'm a happily married Christian Mom of 3 who works for a computer company (I can't fix nothin...only bill for it LOL) As if family life, church activities, and work wouldn't keep me busy enough, I'm also involved in various ways in my community. I mentor a few hours each week at the local Crisis Pregnancy Center, serve as the moderator of my county's Freecycle group (removed group dedicated to keeping still-useful items out of landfills by helping facilitate the FREE exchange of those items within local communities. It's a great way to clear out excess clutter, help the environment, and find stuff you may want or need too. And it's all w/out cost!), am involved w/the Morgan County Right To Life group, and am helping establish a Teens For Life group too.

I enjoy painting, stenciling, scrapbooking, and "repurposing" (making something new out of something old; using stuff in unique ways). I absolutely adore a good-but-inexpensive "find", whether it's come via a "curbside find" (an item someone else was gonna toss), an out-of-the-way "junk" shop (places just made to spend the day digging through, dust and all, to see what cheap "treasures" can be unearthed!), yardsales, "thrift" stores, or an auction.

Well, enough for now. Would love to hear from others who live in my area, or even once did...Take care!
