For the past 4 and 1/2 years, I have had the coolest "job."
(Parenthesis will be for interpreting for non-scrapbookers.)
I was asked to be a Garden Girl for Two Peas back in July 2006.
(www.twopeasinabucket.com, the #1 scrapbooking website)
I was thrilled to get to work with so many really talented people and for a company that treated me so well.
And, being a Garden Girl was such fun. Like a sorority of people who all share your same hobby.
(On the design team: I scrapbooked with product they sold and posted my pages on line and was compensated for it)
However, I felt for the past few months I was doing a good job, but not great.
It seems, I only have so much creative energy each day and homeschooling the boys really takes up most of it.
That, and my days of staying up until 3 am scrapbooking are pretty much behind me.
Through this scrapbooking web site I have:
Made so many friends (2 of my best)
Had the opportunity to teach scrapbooking classes on line and in different parts of the country
Been asked to participate in several book projects and design products
Travel and work at craft trade shows.
And pretty much learned a little bit about every topic under the sun by reading the NSBM.
(NSMB - the Non Scrapbooking Message Board).
Really, every good thing that has happened to me in scrapbooking has come from being involved at Two Pea and the generosity of the people I have met there.
I already miss it. But in that good, brings a smile to your face when thinking about it way:)
