disappear — in the same fasion that socks get "eaten" in the dryer. As hard as I try, I cannot keep track of email. I’m seriously convinced that some messages evaporate into cyperspace!!! I am trying to track down a blogger from Germany who was kind enough to send me a little interview — I’m finally done and would love to find her, so I’m going public — HELP!! Wo bist du?
I have so much "catch up" to do on this blog thing of mine, that today I’m going to share a couple of encouraging things that have been shared with me recently (btw, recently could mean as far back as November!)
First of all, I LOVE it when I meet scrapbookers that have worked on their Big Picture tagbooks (from my book) Seeing this great and very personal resource take shape just makes me giddy inside — Here are some shots of Emily’s tagbook — met her in Seattle.
Way to go Em — thanks so much for sharing!!
Also met Dani in Seattle –she was in my first session of Library of Memories and then showed up to surprise me with some of her albums — so cool.
We are already on lesson five of the LOM 07 session and I’m reminded all over again how good we are at making ourselves feel bad — for some of the silliest reasons, which brings me to share my next topic. If you have five minutes, you really should check out this very insightful video about women and "numbers" — it warns us against basing our value on the wrong things and encourages us to do more of what really counts in the long run. Melissa sent it to me and I think it’s totally awesome!
And in closing, something Taft said to me tonight as we read his library book. I sat down next to him and he put the book in my lap with "this one didn’t win Mom, but I think it will still be good." I questioned him and he explained "there’s no gold seal on this book — it didn’t win!"
Have a good day — but be sure to look beyond others’ judgments — gold seals aren’t the only evidence of success!
