Seriously, I never thought I’d be noticed for my love to cut paper! I am truly LUCKY to have found a hobby and passion that I somehow turned into a career. …and speaking of career, it’s funny when one of Gloria’s friends ask her what I do for a living.
Friend: …so what does Sarah do nowadays?
G: She… umm… cuts up paper and scrapbooks. She’s actually really good at it.
Friend: Oh, neat. …so does she like cut up pictures and glue them to paper?
G: Yeah, but she makes it look really good. She also travels and teaches.
G: Yup. …and she actually has her stuff printed in magazines. (Occasionally, she’ll grab an issue to prove it.)
Friend: That’s great that she is doing what she loves to do.
G: Yeah! …and she gets boxes sent to our house all the time with lots of stuff.
G to me: Sarah, tell them to stop sending you boxes. There’s no more space in our house!
I like to ignore that last thought. 😉
On a completely different note, I had received my monthly issue of Creating Keepsakes in the mail yesterday, but I didn’t know about how great this issue was until someone told me to turn to p. 37 .
Look who was picked to be a standout reader!
Thank you, CK, for picking my name to be amongst an amazing selection of designers.
…and I must totally be on a roll, or maybe I’m just LUCKY today. I went to 2peas today, and I saw something that put a smile on my face. Currently, everyone seems to really like My City layout because it was Top 3 by Views, Top 3 Most Liked, and Top 3 Bookmarked.
Just so you know, I don’t normally post over at 2peas. Perhaps, I should play over there more often.
I also have a couple of projects to share today. My first layout features Jillibean Soup goodness that was generously given to me at CHA. I went a little bit crazy with the punches on this one, hehe.
I love this layout because it has photos of me, Deana, and Jing Jing. These girls are amazing designers, so if you haven’t seen their work yet, I highly recommend you visit their blogs for inspiration.
Isn’t that beaver super adorable?! Its teeth are my favorite part to the cute critter. When I saw it, I knew exactly what pictures to use, haha!
As for my plans for the weekend, it’s going to be a busy, busy couple of days! Wishing everyone a LUCKY day even though it’s Friday the 13th! 😉
