Thank you all so VERY much for all the sweet comments! I really appreciate your kindness… muchas gracias!!!
Cleaned my studio today! Looks so nice! Now I am hoping for creative miracles! I have so many little loose strings, that I need all the clarity I can get! I do best if I can focus on one thing at a time…but when there are several ‘things’ that I am supposed to be working on and thinking about… I have a really hard time focusing.
Case in point: every year one of the local TV channels puts on this big “women’s expo”. It’s at the big convention center downtown, and is all kinds of booths, from businesses that target women, deal with women’s issues etc. they make a pretty big deal out of it! so I was invited to speak on sat. (april 8th) at 11:00am … to whoever shows up I guess!! I am not exactly sure how it works! (Suze Orman will also be in the house… she is amazing… that is pretty cool)… anyway… I feel so TOTALLY overwhelmed and intimidated by the situation! I mean, put me in front of scrapbookers, and I can talk talk talk… it’s hard to shut me UP! But put me in front of a general audience, and well, I am a little freaked out! Especially since I come from such a niche market! …the good news, is that finally yesterday I felt like my message, my thoughts and my presentation finally all “downloaded”… that is the term I use when something I am trying to work through in my mind, finally all clicks and I am able to pull it all together. (deep breath). The name of my presentation is “Are you living a life to REMEMBER?”… and I am wanting to convey the message that scrapbooking (to me) isn’t all about getting every photo out of a shoe box and into a “scrapbook”, but rather creating a legacy, living and capturing the best life we can – and celebrating that life! Hopefully, my love and passion for scrapbooking will be contagious and inspiring! …just maybe we’ll touch a couple women who didn’t know where to start or needed a different introduction… in any event… WISH ME LUCK!
And if you live here… COME!!! (please!) wink………..
I am also teaching a couple of little classes that are pretty quick simple hands-on work shops… 75 people in each, and I think it’s a first come first serve deal… I will be hanging around our booth for the whole day Sat. We are selling a couple of cool kits that are a pretty sweet deal…worth checking it out!
For now, I get to go to CHICAGO and play within my comfort zone… and teach another session of the “SHE” class… talk about my passion! LOL. I am so looking forward to taking part in another CKU-A. It’s just the most awesome experience. I am so excited to see everyone, and soak it up! I have been trying to rest up, so that I can do the all-night scrapbooking thing, as only the albums events can do! We’ll see if pregnancy will allow me to be crazy as usual!
