SNB- Stitch n Bi**ch-
I see it on the knit/crochet threads a lot! It is the name of groups that meet to work together while sharing some socializing.

DH- Dear Hubby/Husband-
often referred to in an exasperated way on many boards (tee-hee)

PAT- Pick a Theme

I know these aren't Craftster specific, but I see:
SAHM: Stay-at-home-mom
DD: dear daughter
and other familial terms around and about... 

Also
Etsy: Craft website where you can sell your stuff, www.Etsy.com
 That's a biggie.

Oh, yeah and NWS/NSW: Not suitable for work

Smiley  Just a suggestion, take it or leave it.
