    When board members change their avatars?? I love to see the new pics but it sure throws me off, I was wondering where susieallaboutquilts and purplemem had went off to but then realized that they had just both changed avatars!!

    I wanted everyone to see my MOM!!! She recovered at our home from major surgery and we went out to dinner for my birthday. (belated but who cares)
    I was so excited to have my Mom with us!!
    I have a lot to be grateful for :)

    I know what you mean but I get tired of seeing the same thing on mine so I switch up every so often :) I don't recognize me either :)

    I think about changing mine, but I don't cause I know I recognize people's avatars, and I figure they recognize mine.

    Isn't that the truth? Sometimes I don't remember the name, but I can always spot the avatar.
    I changed mine once, I used to have Tinkerbell

    I like avatars that are pictures of the people and or their family or fur babies. I know I do not have an avatar yet, but I am working on it. I associate with peoples faces.

    I try not to change mine very often, just for this reason. My current one has been up since August.

    yes it does, but i changed mine recently too, mine was of my furbaby Xanadu, who stepped onthe rainbow on August 27, 2010, and people asked what i look like, and it broke my heart to look at him allt he time, so i changed it.

    I like to change mine as Olivia grows. Hope it doesn't throw you off, but instead enjoy watching grow.

    I really like your new one, Grama Lehr. :-D

    But I admit to losing track of who is who when they change their avatars. Although, I am remembering a few by name now.

    What I would like to know, is how do you get your named spelled as a written signature?? those are really neat.
