clearly I need to have more parties — and next time I will give you all advance notice (promise!) I’ve had several emails wondering how you can order from Upper Case Living online. If you want to place an order with my consultant, her name is Christina Moline and her ID# is 761672 (token "moline") or you can email her. Cheri Redd who lives in PA is also a demonstator and would love to help places orders or assist those of you on the other side of the states!!
You can email her too.
Took a couple of pics of "words" I’ve got up.
This one is on the cupboard in my laundry room — as you may or may not know, I actually like ironing and do it often, so my boys will look sharp in their sunday shirts — when I saw this in the catalog it was "so mine"
and this one is in my entry way — kinda wierd maybe that it’s down low (but I LOVE it!)
the idea being that you come in and sit on a little ottoman-thing and remove your shoes to put in the shoe basket — and from this level/angle you get a "welcome" — there’s a welcome on my front door too (some of you will see that tonight!)
On another note, I received a FUN email this morning from Cyndi, who I met in Alabama at the ScrapETC event. I clicked through to her blog and just loved what she said. I think she relates what so many of us feel from time to time and her solution is right on — just decide to let go and PLAY.
She was lucky enough to have a photo of beautiful me with green hair — wish I could provide such irresistible inspiration to all!!
Cyndi: I feel like there should be a drum roll or something (lol). I finally scrapped!
OK, as many of you know its been over two months since I did a single layout. Or brought a single scrapbook product (gasp). Not even roaming the boards or pulling out the latest scrap magazine seemed to get me in the mood. Even Marc was surprised when I told him how long it had been. Then someone told me to stop looking at it as something I had to do. I think in part it had to do with my own feelings lately of being rejected by the industry, of feeling as if my style was not "the" style. Basically I had taken the fun out of scrapbooking, which is why I started this in the first place. It gave me pleasure, made me happy. Well it did until recently. So yesterday I pulled out a picture I printed out after I met Stacy J back in March. At the time my Epson printer had started going wacko on me, so when it came out Stacy had green hair! Of course I printed out another one, but the pack rat in me could not bring myself to throw away the picture. So I thought….why not "play" with the picture. Who would it hurt, there were no scrapbook police around to cuff me just because I used a "discolored" picture. And you know what? I loved it. The page took less then a half hour ( another record for me ) and now that I am done I wonder what the heck took me so long. Not to scrapbook, but to just except that just like I tell people to accept me as I am..why don’t I say accept my scrap pages as they are?
Lesson learned……….just do it for the plain fun of it, and when and if other blessings come along the way, embrace them look at it for what it is and then move on to the next page.
Can’t think of anything to add to this — except that I agree!!
