It came in the mail day before yesterday and it’s from Amy Williams, a very talented scrapbooker and wonderful teacher. I became acquainted with Amy a couple of years ago at a convention outside Boston. In fact, I sat in on a class she was teaching and was so impressed with the care she had taken and the manner in which she presented that I asked her to take some assignments with Simple Scrapbooks magazine. Amy has for the last two years developed great SS classes that are taught at the CK Conventions, across the country. She is now also teaching at Big Picture Scrapbooking (Check out her Talk Chalk class here.) Last year sometime and quite out of the blue, Amy emailed me a photo of a darling tote bag she had made with scrapbooking product, photos and some plastic tubing. I loved it so much that we made it a bonus download at simplescrapbooksmag.com with our November/December 2005 issue.
Amy has a classic style and yet she isn’t afraid to try new things. In fact she has surprised me several times with her resourcefulness.
To Amy and others like her, I dedicated my Wednesday’s Words:
Once in awhile it really hits
people that they don’t have to
experience the world in the way
they have been told to.
Why not use business cards to construct a really cool tote bag!
Thanks Amy — I love it.
