Love my O Family!

I've really enjoyed reading everyone's stories about the origins of their screen names ("nom du scrap" my husband says sometimes jokingly). Thanks, Olga, for posting this.
My name choice was pretty straightforward. My grandkids call me Granny and I live in Florida. Pretty non-creative, right? :D But I like it because it describes me and one of the main reasons I scrap. My real name is Diane (Hi "Madi") and if I ever figure out how to add a signature, I'll do that.
I'm sooooo glad to FINALLY know what your real name is, Diane! ;)

I think FloridaGranny is a really cool name -I get this image of a realy cool active 'gangsta granny' zooming around the pool snapping pics of her grandkids and then sitting down on a sea-view terrace with a glass of wine to scrap... I imagine your last name isn't Smith - because GrannySmith would be just too cool of a name... of course, you'd need a Mac then...

As for the signature - I've just looked through your gallery... anyone who can get their software to do that kind of blending and shadowing can surely get through instructions on how to add a siggy. :cool: so I guess you've just been busy creating pages...

This has been fun reading! I had no creativity when it came to choosing an online name those many years ago when I signed up at all of the digital scrapbooking sites, lol! My married name at the time was Day, so my very creative online name became vickyday! Sometimes it ends up as vickyday13 at other places because I had to go to #13 when signing up for a gmail account! Who would've thought there were so many Vicky Day's in the world! When my husband died in 2017 and I remarried in 2018, I decided I was NOT going to the trouble of changing everything from Day to Whittemore, LOL! (Is it bad to still feel like I am Vicky Day in my heart after being a Day for 41 years? He really was my soul mate! I still miss him every day!)
Vicky, you may not have intended this, but your username is very uplifting and super positive - it sounds like every day is YOUR day and that IS something in this day and time.

Thanks, Olga! I love your image of me and admit it's actually not far off! But sadly, I'm not Smith, :D. Thanks for pointing out the instructions. Sometimes I just need to be led, LOL.
