I've been hearing from LOTS of you that the May/June issue of Simple Scrapbooks is arriving in your mailbox, for the last time.
I can tell you that your expressions of gratitude and melancholy are met with equal emotion on my side! What an amazing ride. I thrill to think that I was given such a grand opportunity. I am thankful to ALL of the people that believed in the vision of Simple Scrapbooks. Even those that never caught the vision, but allowed us to freedom to experiment and grow and gather loyal readers should be thanked.
So … THANK YOU.
Thanks to Simple Scrapbooks I have made lifelong friendships and gained confidence and done things I never thought I'd do. I've met and connected with thousands of women, I've traveled the world and I've been inspired to rethink my own expectations around scrapbooking, ultimately leading me to develop a Library of Memories system that I can now share with others at Big Picture Scrapbooking.
I want you to know that I will continue to advocate and promote a simplified approach to scrapbooking via my blog and through BPS. I have other things in the work that will help the SS philosophy live on. More important than all of that, I will continue to do what I can to inspire women to savor life and celebrate all of the little things that make it worth living. The world today is chock full of YUCK, but I believe in the power and influence of good people and especially good women.
Be sure to bookmark the blogs of Simple personalities (on page 9 of the May/June issue) and plan on visiting during the week of April 27th … we are ALL planning to share memories and tributes and give away STUFF. It will be our final and very festive FAREWELL celebration.
sometimes you have to say good-bye, but life is still good.
Oh … and one more thing. It's Amy's (our amazing BPS editor) 40th birthday today. Click here and leave her a birthday wish (thanks!)
