Hi y'all!

Thanks for having me here! I'm looking forward to playing along in the challenges and checking out all of the great designers!

My name is Jaclyn, but in digiland and real life, I mostly go by Jac :). I've been married to Ryan for 12 years and we have 5, soon to be 6 (in 5 weeks) children, 3 dogs, 1 rabbit and 1 guinea pig! We currently live in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, closer to Wisconsin than to the Lower MI. I've been digi scrapping for about just over 2 yrs now, give or take, and love it. Although this pregnancy has had its share of issues so I've not done a lot of scrapping in the last several months.

I'm also on the CT of Marie H Designs.

Anywho, thanks again!

~Jac

Welcome to GingerScraps. I've lived in Lower Michigan all my life and one of my favorite places to visit is the Upper Pennisula. Such a gorgeous place!

OOHHHHHH another YOOPER!! YEEHAW!! I'm in Kalamazoo now but was born and raised in a teeny tiny town called Nahma, on Lake Michigan... Where are you? I'm so sad that I don't get to make a trip home this fall to see the colors! I remember being a little girl and riding in the back of my grandpa's truck thru all the 2 rut roads and just looking at all the trees!!

Welcome to GS! You are going to love it here!!

They turned so quickly :( , but last weekend was SOOO gorgeous! We went on a color tour Friday and Saturday - sadly though most of the leaves were blown away from the high winds.

Hi Jac! Welcome to Ginger Scraps! Congrats on the new little one! Are you expecting a boy or a girl? Hopefully, these last 5 weeks go by quickly and smoothly for you!!

Ahh! With my "pregnancy brain" I totally forgot to respond.

4 weeks ago, we had a little girl! Ivelynn (pronounced Ivy Lynn). She was 8 lbs. 15 oz and 20 inches long. Things have been so hectic here trying to get back to a routine and adding a new baby into the mix, but I wouldn't change it for anything. I've finally gotten back to where I am desiring to scrap again and it's SOOO nice to be able to do that!
