HAPPY e-mail from Deborah
I’ve been doing a few classes over at BPC and loving them. LOM changed my life and has made scrapping so much easier and fun. I have just been in May’s Use Your Stash class and whilst I haven’t specifically scrapped any of the challenges or scrapped a huge amount of layouts, I did sort my stash. I have sorted all my embellies by color after being inspired by your posts on your blog. Last night I created 2 layouts and it was so easy to add the embellies from my stash because I just looked through my newly organised color boxes!
I have attached one of the layouts based on a sketch over at my friend’s Scrapbooking store
Deborah — You and this page are beautiful!
HAPPY snail mail from Lisa
This letter came with an adorable box (pay particular attention to the italicized parts):
I have been a student at BPC for a number of years; too many to think about! Most of my classes have been with you and the LOM system. Each year I learn something new and enjoy my time as one of your students. It has taken me much longer to implement the system because life gets in the way. I know in the end, it will all come together and I will be a happier scrapper because of it. And isn’t that what it is all about; being happy with what you have and what you do with it?
During the LOM of 2010 you had a layout in lesson 8 “Things I’ve Recently Realized”, and on this layout you had a small section of old, used stamps! You guessed it — your surprise gift is a box full of old used stamps. I have so many of them and I thought I should spread the joy. They come from my Great Uncle, who was a priest during WWII and had many adventures overseas. He was even the religious council at the war crime trials. After his passing my mom found them hidden in his house and she was going to give them away or throw them out. I took the whole box; a very large box! Over the years I continue to share them and use them on some of my projects and layouts.
Lisa — You made my heart so very happy. Thank YOU.
Can you believe it?
Really — how delightful is it to be a part of a community of women who are so eager to create and share joy!
Such a delight.
