On Scrapbooking...

I'm not scrapbooking.

I've actually 'graduated' from the Just Cre8 design team and am now an honorary member of their design team alumni. Can you believe it!? I never thought I would have another alumni designation after I graduated from Trent! LOL!!! I hope I still get a kit every once in a while and that they don't forget about me! I'm still a diehard JC8 girlie....with just a few other obligations on my plate, now.

Seriously, it was just too much ....I hate that constant feeling of being overwhelmed......... and besides, I want to scrap for me again....something I haven't done in......um........I guess for well over a year.

Wow.

How did things change so completely? How did I go from someone who loved my creative expression and spending every available moment immersed in my craft......to this? Stepping into my first DT gig with Scrapshotz.....I really thought I wanted the whole DT thing.

I guess I'm just not design team material. I lose it. My mojo goes on vacay. Not good.

The upside though......I am finding my voice. I've had some serious lessons in the past 2 years, starting with my uncle's sudden death. .....and I actually think I'm learning those lessons. I do know, that I don't like to run my butt off......that's not me. I can't and don't want to. This whole super-mom headset......well, that's not me. I am only one person.

Now, if I can just stop feeling obligated to justify myself, that will be perfect.

Baby steps (this is the part of growing up that I really dig!)

Im so glad to hear things are turning around for you - and settling down. I too hope you grab a few kits along the way - cause you may think that you have lost your mojo but my goodness - you work ALWAYS blew me away - you know I am a huge fan! Good Luck with everything - be strong - keep taking those baby steps - and next thing you know you will hve walked into a new phase of your life.

PS don't worry I could never forget about ya...I can't ever have a shooter with out picturing you!!LOL Hope to get together soon!
(((HUGS!!))))

Forget about you?!?! Are you kidding?

We will never forget about you -- you are still as much a part of our team as ever.

((((hugs))))

And, PS, I fully expect to meet you in Ont. on my next JC8 trip -- don't forget it!
