Product Frenzy and some New Pages

This is what my scraproom looks like after an SC box has come in--recognize the look of pure joy on my face? :)

This page is a little more personal, and has flowers on it because I was in a flower mood. Very sophisticated design process here.

This next one I started out LOVING and then HATING. My husband suggested I put it away for a while and let the poor thing regain its' self esteem. Do you all ever have it happen that you just can't stand a page? I also made it with a design team call in mind, which only exacerbates the whole thing. Oy vey.

I also have been thinking about my whole angst about publishing pages--when I got a page picked up by Scrapbook Trends last months, I was over the moon. Then, I got a call this month for the Stamping book but none for the issue itself, even though I emailed it tons of pages I really loved. It's hard to step back and not take things personally sometimes. It also shows how when it comes to looking for some sort of external validation, nothing will ever be enough. It just has to come from the inside.

Now if only I can make another page I like....

  1. Love your work! You crack me up for having your husband take a pic of you with your newly opened S.C. kit. Congrats for the pub in Scrapbook Trends. Everything you were saying about taking it personally is true for me too. I have not been published yet though I must admit I haven't been trying as hard as I should. The few times I have tried I ended up feeling down in the dumps when I didn't hear back. It will happen though eventually! Cheers!

  2. I just signed up to follow you. You are a natural talent, great pages and you make it look effortless! Congrats on getting pubbed, and try not to let the ups and downs of it get to you. Craft for you... scrap for you... share when you can ... but keep the joy of it for YOU! No one can determine where you'll go with your art but YOU!

    Glad I found you on 2Peas... your stuff it great!

    Play along with us at Sketchy Thursdays sometime. I'd love to see more of your work!
