~~~~ Administrators ~~~~

"Hi my names Buffy. I've been doing PSP a long time and still learning new things each day! I live on a farm in Va. I'm divorced now 12 years. I have 3 kids, 6 grandkids, and 1 great granbaby. We have horses. I used to be very active in horse rescue but I'm getting to old now, lol. We just have our horses now and I raise & breed mini Dachshunds - I have 3 now, and a blood hound, and pitbull., and 1 rooster! I love art! Drawing, painting folk art, china; I love antique furniture and nic-nacs! And I like creating tags on PSP. I am an Admin and as such do a little of everything, from the day to day running of the group to organizing group activities. If you need a hand with anything, just holler!"

"My name is Louise. I am a widow for 18 years now. This is my son, Terry, and daughter, Julie, in the picture with me. My son has one daughter, Keri. She will be 18 in December. My daughter has twins, girl and boy. They will be 12 in October. I don't have any pets right now. I am retired. I went on disability 3 years ago. I worked all my life in the plastics industry in Quality Control till my plant closed in 2008. Went to college and got a degree but never got to use it. I've been making graphics around 15 years now. I started making wallpapers, then tags. I also make Posers, and backgrounds in Bryce and Terragen. I am also a Fractal Artist.
I am the copyright moderator for EFR. I help the group stay safe & copyright compliant! I also find new artists, gain new permissions for the group, and add new tubes to the Artist Permissions & FTU Tubes board!"

"Hi! My name is Kathyfrances and I am one of 4 founding members of EFR. Our group started with 4 original founding members, Bobbie & Marilyn Allen, my sister Connie (Elle') and myself. We first started at MSN and when we left there, Bobbie & Marilyn left to pursue their artistic endeavors; while Connie & I took the group into the wild .com world, lol. We tried a few hosts, before finally finding a home here on forumotion. EFR is about 12 years old, with the last 3 years being spent here at this location.
I am a wife of 33 years to the most wonderful man, mother of a 26 year old daughter, retired teacher (34 years) and an avid PSPer. I have 6 tiny furbabies (5 Chihuahuas & 1 Pomeranian). I have a lot of hobbies and interests, but PSP is my favorite!"

"Hello, everyone! My name is Marlene. I have been married to my second husband for 22 years. We have two daughters, Miranda 21, and Amanda, 19. I am 56 years old and have always been a 'stay at home mom'. I have been living in Nashville, Tennessee since moving from my home state of Florida 35 years ago. I am an avid reader and an avid PSP'er! I was introduced to PSP about 15 years ago and I have been at it ever since! As an administrator, I oversee the day to day running of the group, help run & organize group activities, and help out anywhere needed (like the PSP Challenge board)!"

~~~~ Creative Editor ~~~~
Sly (Sylvia)
"Hi, I am Sly! I have been PSPing for about 9 years. I enjoy making forum skins, posers, and actually anything with PSP! I have three children, 10 grandchildren, and 1 great-grandchild on the way. I have a Miniature Schnauzer named Snickers and a Manx cat named Symba. I have been a member of EFR since March 2008 and have worn many hats and I am excited about helping out as creative editor (helping with forum skins and wherever needed). EFR is the greatest GROUP on the web!!!"

"I started playing around in PSP/Animation way, way back in 2004 and used to love everything involved with it. I've had a 10 year break from it though, due to raising a young family again. I've recently started out and have noticed every thing is so different to how it used to be! I'm back to making tags and animations and i am really enjoying it again   My favourite ones i like to make are animated ones! I'm from Great Yarmouth, Norfolk UK and live 2 minutes away from the beach.   I have 5 children ranging all ages and spend quite a bit of time with the 2 youngest I was blessed with at my old age. :)"

Deana has offered to help us out every month by posting Template, Word Art, Animation, Texture/Background, & Mask Challenges! Deana also writes tuts and teaches how to use PSP.

"A little about me... I have lived in  Memphis for almost all my life.. I lived in West Virginia and Key West,  Florida before we finally moved back to Memphis. I love trying to make tags. My motto is "if you don't try - you don't learn." We do not have children or pets. After teaching for 20 and 1/2 years I walked out of the building where I work on Dec. 20, 2000 and never went back.  I really like this forum. Liz"

Sarah has generously offered to help with posting gems! Each month she credits your account with Voting gems and helps out as needed with checking in and other gems!

I'm a "mom" to 4 of the sweetest kitties in the world.  They are all a "rescue" of one sort or another.  They range in ages from 2 yrs to 16 years.  I'm a "total sucker" for anything with 4 legs and fur. I'm married to a wonderful guy who has been "putting up with me" for 35 years and deserves a "Gold Medal" for that! Love my PSP, Machine Embroidery, Sewing  and Crocheting"
