I just typed that post title and it made me think of "the rain in spain falls mainly on the plain" — from My Fair Lady, I am always surprised at how our brains are the ultimate storage device, cataloging and calling up all kinds of "related" topics when we enter new data. Not at all what this post is about — this post is about …
a little over four inches last night — we are so excited!!
can you tell? I simply said "Ok, show me on your face, how snow makes you feel" — love it.
do you remember putting on boots over your jammies, because you couldn’t wait to get dressed? Now that’s the kind of no-rules spontaneity that will nurture your creative side!!
Wow. what a week — I don’t think I’ve been this busy in a LONG time. I’m exhausted, physically, emotionally and mentally and I’m actually thankful for it, as it reminds me that to grow, you really have to "push" yourself — sometimes the push comes from outside and othertimes inside, either way the growth is inevitable. Let’s just say I’m experiencing growing pains (which btw, I always tell my boys is such an exciting thing!)
So, got this email from Carla in Spain and it made my day, my week and possibly my month!
I don’t know if you remember me. I’m the spanish girl who wrote you last year explaining you that scrapbooking didn’t exist in Spain. Today i write you this to say:
"I got your book!!"
There is a brand new store in spain, which sells scrapbooking supplies throw internet and I was lucky enough to receive your book for my 21 birthday.
I’ve already read a big part of it and learned a lot. What I liked the best was to know about your "family fun library". I never imagined before this non chronological way of scrapbooking. And what I found the most important thing is to describe people. I will try to describe more the people I love and myself, instead of the dates and places! (like you say in page 34).
I send you a picture of me the day I got the book (it isn’t a very good one) and the other presents I got.
I’m really in love with it! Congratulations
and, here she is …
isn’t she adorable?
Carla — just want you to know that you have embarked on such an amazing journey. Don’t rush and for heaven’s sake, don’t expect perfection — little children and fresh fallen snow are perfection, the rest is what we make of it — so go and have fun and see where it takes you and by all means — DESCRIBE MORE THE PEOPLE YOU LOVE AND YOURSELF!
happy, happy Thursday (thursdays are good days, I like thursdays!)
