Happy Labor Day!! I'm running a bit behind posting my pages for Shimelle's class. Below is the one for September 3rd (day 3):
I'm challenging myself to use my chipboard - part of the Use my Stash class by May over at Big Picture Scrapbooking. The paper is some old Amy Butler paper I had - I loved the paper and was saving it - for what I don't know. It coordinates with the paper pack I am trying to get rid of, so I threw it in there. I also had some coordinating Stampin' Up! stickers, so I'm using those up as well. It's amazing what you can do if you look to those things you don't normally use.
My lesson today - 'I learned today to 'give' into help. I don't need to do everything myself, and not everyone wants to help me just because they think I'm weak'. I'm stubborn - incredibly stubborn. I'm very sensitive to those who stereotypically treat me like a female - ie a dumb blonde (I'm blonde...so I can say that). I have trouble separating out those that just want to be helpful, with those who truly think since I'm a girl I can't do something. I'm learning that the new people around me at work just want to be helpful.
Welcome to my site!!
I recently moved to Arizona a couple months ago, and am very happily settling into a new career. I was introduced to stamping over 10 years ago. I've always been into crafts, and picked back up with stamping a couple years ago. I love that I finally have the time to dedicate to my crafts, and that I'm able to share my ideas with everyone. I've seen myself grow in my creativity over the past couple years, and to those who say that they are not creative - don't believe it. Anyone can do this, and creativity doesn't happen overnight, it evolves as you learn more and more about the art of stamping. My husband is incredibly supportive as I put more time into my stamp designs and my scrapbooking.
