Thread: Lingo for Newbies

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Lingo for Newbies

    Ok, well I thought I would start a thread to translate the lingo for newbies that you all might see here and around.

    LO = layout
    DH = Dear Husband
    DS = Dear Son
    DD = Dear Daughter
    NDSR = Not Digital Scrapbook Related
    ISO = In Search of

    Everyone, please chime in with others you think of
    I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days attack me at once.

    Mil- Mother-inlaw
    Fur baby - A furry pet that is the family baby

    Great idea Holly, the problem with abbreviations, is it is so hard (read impossible) to find a list, so unless you ask on every item, you aren't sure if the way you are using it is the same as everyone else. Here's a few from me.

    BTW=by the way
    TFS=Thanks for sharing
    TTYL=Talk to you later
    WTG=Way to go

    another name for that is a "tradigital LO"
    biscraptual also refers to people like me who do both paper and digi scrapping, but not necessarily on the same LO (or a tradigitial scrapper)

    sometimes on DH it is helpful to look at the context, because I often use it to mean DARN hubby as well, LOL.

    Just a thought - could we maybe post a sticky link with a list of these so that it is easy to find for newbies? alphabetized?

    It also means that - and sometimes looking at the context on that one doesn't help.
