Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Helpful Hints to Abbreviations, Chatspeak, Tagging, etc.

We've had a few discussions and questions on this and I think a "sticky" post of it's own for quicker reference will help out many of our members! So please feel free to add to this discussion. As I add your suggestions I will delete the comments so this stays easy to read and doesn't become a long chatter thread. LOL Thanks!!!

HB or HEM or HE = Heat Emboss
DMB or DEM or ? = Dry Emboss
OMS - odorless mineral spirits
Hmm.....I've never seen those abbreviations Lagene........I don't see why you couldn't use them, although they may be less popular so you'd have to explain them! LOL

Time for a reminder...
Lee, can we add SAHM to the list? Someone asked about it and it might be nice to add.

Okay, for the "Computer Losers", like me, duh....LOL  (I mean that jokingly, but it IS true.)

When typing a message...we used to put the whole phrase, then immediately put the abbrev in parathesis, then for the rest of the message, you can use the abbrev, and one could simply refer back to the word. 

But, in this technology, there are more abbrev then you can shake a stick at...LOL

Don't get me started on the cell phone text abbreviations. 

OMGosh, I have spent time trying to figure things out, so, I would NOT to look like an idiot, but, I always end of asking what it means??  LOL  I'm terrible, ha! 

My daughter thinks I am hilarious for asking!  I don't mind, I wasn't born knowing all this technology. 

How is it that my 10 year old grandson knows more than I do?  haha  My grandsons help me!  LOL
