If you're my Facebook friend, you may already know that this hasn't been the best couple of days. Just an hour ago, Adam and I made a verbal list of everything that's gone wrong, just to get some perspective and try and laugh about it. This list is long and almost comical.
But in spite of that, there are some GREAT things in my life. First of all, I don't have a landlord anymore. And after this morning, I'm even more grateful for that. Our Dish Network is finally working (after an entire morning on the phone and then having a tech come out again.) Our internet apepars to be okay...knock on wood...so I can blog with photos again.
And didn't you miss my sunny disposition?
AND. AND. This guy showed up in the mail:
I'm REALLY excited about this book because I got to write the text. The pages are NOT all mine (be thankful!) but the words are, and I can tell you even the black and white printout they sent me to use when writing it, I could tell, this book was pure awesomeness!
** I want to stress that these pages are from a WIDE assortment of some of your favorite scrapbookers!! I'm just the writer, the eye candy is what makes this an awesome, awesome book!!!
Here's my little introduction. Sorry, it's not a good picture. I needed a V8.
We tried to keep the tone very conversational, and my editor was absolute JOY to work with. She's the one who had to find all the awesome pages and put them all together in the perfect way. The crack team at Memory Makers Books assembled a TON (a TON!) of incredible eye candy to inspire even the most burnt out scrapbooker.
Not that I'm talking to myself or anything.
The other cool feature is that this book spotlights other Memory Makers Books authors in case you haven't snatched up some of their other amazing idea books. Here's my spotlight...
Fun, right? Here's Greta Hammond's. I love that girl. Her work is amazing.
There's also these cool extra tips throughout the book, just to inspire you to think outside the box. It's great for beginniers and advance scrapbookers alike!
There's just so much to look at.
