Wow! What a start to the weekend :)



An overflowing box of scrapbooking goodness! I'm an astounded by the kindness and generosity of the incredible woman who sent this surprise to me.

The other day, I left a Twitter Update which read: "It doesn't take a lot to make someone's day - just be kind: thoughtful and generous of spirit. Pretty simple, really." and I do believe that to be true and do live my life, every single day, that way.

The other day there was someone in need and, as is my nature, I stepped in to see if I could help.

Sometimes that is not a smart thing to do. As often as not, my stepping in has been met with some pretty hostile, jealous and petty responses. And, sometimes my stepping in is met with genuine gratitude and thanks. I am relieved that this is the case this time. I truly would have been heartbroken if it had been any other way. So much more fun living in the land of adults :)

I am so exited to start working with so much delicious new stuff! I've never seen some of these products before - on line or in stores. I can't wait to figure out how it's all going to make my pages look better than ever. I'm on a scrapbooking roll lately. Loving this new Cathy Zielse (she so rocks!) course at Big Picture Scrapbooking. The best $99 dollars I have ever spent. Ever. All of the layouts are posted on my new scrapbook blog: thelinarstudio. Leave a comment, let me know if you agree!

This weekend I'm off to the rink and the rink, oh, and the rink. I'm hoping to fit some of this creating in at some point. Wishing you all a fantabulous weekend and I do hope you get to indulge in your great passion as well.
