No mistake about it …

Those who aren’t making mistakes
probably aren’t making

Samuel Smiles

Trial and error is the secret sauce of the creative process.
By finding out what doesn’t work, we eventually
discover what does.

Mistakes Are Great

Fail? I haven’t failed! I now have 3,800 ways not to make an electric storage battery.

Papa Murphy’s pizza night at the school and
husband’s going skiing with his friends overnight — I’m feeling some scrapbooking coming on!


  1. That Thomas Edison quote is a personal fave of mine!
    Good luck with the scrapping…please pass the mojo? :)

  2. Ginger Roberts says:

    PLEASE pass so serious mojo my way!!!!!!!

  3. 3 quotes about failures – you silly girl! In no way does that word apply to you. You put yourself out there for us. The failure lies in those who could not see the possibilities. Those who could, ran with it and they will continue to run far! Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. Tonya Smith says:

    Love your comments girl. You rock! Thanks for the positive feedback. I’m still in a good mood.

  5. Pam Cooper says:

    I’m also scrapping this weekend at a retreat with 72 others… can’t wait!
    Found a quote you might like:
    Creativity is not the finding of a thing, but the making something out of it after it is found.
    James Russell Lowell
    Have a good weekend… looking forward to future classes!

  6. I miss seeing you in my e-mail box every morning! Thanks for a great class!

  7. Love the quotes – but what got me? Papa Murphy’s! Oh, that takes me back to my Spokane roots! Take ‘n Bake pizza! Wow, does that bring back some childhood memories. :)

  8. Oh, Stacy… lucky you getting to scrapbook! I’m having a tough time finding time these days! (Don’t add a new puppy to your routine… it’s all-consuming! LOL) Enjoy your creative play! :)

  9. Happy news…I’m pretty good at mistakes!

  10. Stacy,
    This was just what I needed….on Wednesday I had spent lots of time thinking about all the things I hadn’t done…all because I didn’t want to mess them up!! I referenced your post in my own post on a similar topic. Thanks for those quotes….they were just what I needed-funny how that works sometimes!
