mine: cakes22 = I like cakes & 22 is my birthday & fav. #.

My name is Tiffany, and my mom has called me Miss Tiff for as long as I can remember. (If I heard "Tiffany" I knew I was in trouble!)

What??? You're mom only used your whole first name when you were in trouble? Around these here parts we knew we were in trouble when your entire name: first, middle and last was screeched from the window of the house-he, he!

user name, first three letters of my last name and cakes-not a very creative choice, but it was at the end of a really long day.

okay, a funny story: at school things are addressed to the grade we teach and the first letter of our last name, so one year 2 of our names started with the letter F, so I was told that my mail would be addressed to F U
Oh NO they didn't! A new system was put in place. Ha, ha-I do have some power.

There's a caterer in town who goes by Indy Anna (get it? Indiana?). I thought it was such a cool play on words that I stole the idea!

That's exactly what I heard too!! icon_lol.gif

When my kids are in trouble they know it, I call them by their full name (first, middle and last).


My username:

I wanted to ask a ? but didn't know how addictive the site was going to be so just used something I used waayyyy back when I had time for cross stitching. If I knew I was still going to be around for this long (and I don't see myself leaving anytime soon icon_lol.gif ) I'd have been much more creative....ahh, well.....

I'm SugarFrosted because I am very messy and usually have almost as much frosting on me as on the cake I am working on. It's the name I have used just about everywhere on the net since the 90s. It's also the name of my website.

to sidetrack just a second ... my sister's name is Carla Jean. she didn't know her first name was carla until she started school.

Her family calls her Jean.
Her co-workers call her Carla.
Her friends call her CJ.

So when I'm at her house, I can tell the relationship she has with someone just by what they call her! icon_lol.gif

Don't you just love how that works... so of course when I named my daughter she had to have a name that would work the same. It's Audrey Lynn.

Whenever I was in trouble, it was my first and middle name yelled... ELIZABETH ANN !!!! Nobody, I mean NOBODY called me Elizabeth unless I was in trouble, so whenever someone calls me that, I internally cringe, lol. Please, just call me Beth.

I think my screen name is pretty self-explanatory. Except now I'm really bigsisof7kids, but I'm had the 3kids screen name forever on the internet, so I just kept it to be less confusing to me.

Ah.. chilz822..
chilz is short for ChiliP (Chili-P), which is a nickname I've had for many years because I'm a huge, huge, HUGE (did I mention huge?) fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers. I have several tattoos and each of them have little red peppers incorperated somewhere in them (inside joke to myself) ... and 8/22 is my birthday.

...did I mention I was a huge fan? icon_biggrin.gif

Mine was the name of the best cat I ever had, Hallow and I had her for 3 years before she got sick. We got her on Halloween night while we were taking the kids trick and treating and she followed us the whole time. She was just a kitten. Then when we were done and going home, she jumped into our minivan and she was destined to be ours.

Okay, so I debated for a couple days trying to figure out a cool name, I was just completely blank and stuck with a boring normal name. Jer is for my name Jermin but everyone calls me Jer and 702 is the area code for Las Vegas where I live.

Well believe it or not mine has nothing to do with the wizard of Oz. I've never even seen it icon_lol.gif but since I've been using that name I found out that there is a Aunt Em in it.
It is because I'm from a large family so I was an aunt when I was born. but no one every calls me "aunt" because all my nieces and nephews are really close to my age. "Em" is my nickname.

ready...wait for it...wait for it...it's sooooooooo creative.

My screen name is my first initial and my last name.

I know, I know, please stop the applause I'm blushing. Really it's just so hard being so darn creative but yet I pulled it off with dignity and grace. *flips hair and gives a big toothy Trident gum commercial smile*

I put in a bunch of different user names and they were all taken. I finally just used what I have now because I got sick of trying to be creative.

Oh and by the way Beth (bigsisof3kids) is not kidding about her name. I called her Elizabeth in class once and you should have seen her face. It looked something like this icon_eek.gif. You could literally see how much she hated being called that without her saying a word.....it was priceless icon_lol.gif I then use to call her Bethany just joking around here and there, that one never bothered her though.

When I started getting into making cupcakes just a few months back I was searching for a catchy name for my creations. After seeing all the pictures a friend of mine started calling them Eye Candy. My husband, family and other friends liked it so it stuck. Now I call my creations Eye Candy by Diana... and if I get the opportunity to open a bakery one day that will hopefully be the business name. My crafty friends have already came up with logos.

So there you have it, Eye Candy... in reference to my baked goods. icon_smile.gif
