For all of your kind words and thoughts — the positive energy being gathered here is amazing.
I'm sure I will continue to experience waves of sadness (and other emotions) but I relish the fact that I continue to work with the incredible talents of Cathy and Wendy and so many other women that understand and embrace the "Simple" philosophy – as an approach to scrapbooking and creative expression and even more importantly, as a way of life.
Dawn just emailed me a quote I love …
We all need some time to process this change and discover what it means for us as individuals and as creatives as we look to the future. While I was waiting to share the sad news with you, I found the motivation to finish posting to my RENAISSANCE page. I wrote this page early last year in an effort to make my 2008 word an actionable thing. I had been playing around with some ideas for my 2009 word and have settled on RECEIVE. I'm one who likes to take her time with new ideas — so forgive me if I'm "behind" on the word thing. I actually shared some of my feelings regarding the power of selecting and using a guiding word, in the voice message of this FREE class. I want you to know, that even in the midst of my emotion, I am at peace with this change and eager to put myself in a place where I can gratefully receive what comes next — let's hope it involves a really good, nutty brownie.
Have a wonderful day and a productive and relaxing weekend!
