Just blog hopping and chatting on the phone this AM started me thinking about things I have learned from my wonderful, awesome friends. Sure, I had friends before scrapbooking but now that I am really a part of this crazy crafting community, I really feel like I have boatloads of friends! LOL I've always had one or two "friends" at a time and just a lot of acquaintances. Not any more! Getting older is good. Here are some of the things (not all) I have learned from some of my friends over the years:
Holly H - Remember to take time for yourself so you can give your best to family and friends the rest of the time.
Cindy -- Take it easy and don't get too wound up over stuff (I leanred but rarely do it - hehe).
Trisha -- Give everyone a chance and even second and third chances. Lord knows she has given me plenty.
Elena-- Make it pretty and they will come--hehe. She sure knows how to throw a party and make people feel like they are a part of things.
Gloria - You can accomplish your dreams.
Cheryl M. - Stay calm under pressure.
PJ - You can never have too much paper or ribbon! LOL Laugh every day.
Laura - Saying thank you is important.
Nan - Make every moment in your life fun.
Stephanie - Remember God comes first.
Tiffany - Give people the benefit of the doubt.
Cheryl W - Speak softly and carry big scissors.
April - Wait a while and things will calm down
Maria - There is alot to be said for the power of relationships!
Tammy - Take time to spend with the kids - very important
Gina R - It's never too late to follow your dreams.
Geenah - You can be happy whatever your situation--just make a choice to be
Anne- Patience is key to dealing with any problem (or person)
Sherry - You can have a family AND be a world traveler!
If you weren't mentioned it doesn't mean anything except that I am in a hurry and trying to type really fast. I probabyl learned so much from you I can't articulate it in one sentence (and someof you above I learned alot from but just talked about one thing). You know, that whole getting old thing, my memory is going! LOL
I totally feel a layout coming on, however, I am supposed to prepping for my class that is in 5 hours --yikes! So until tomorrow...happy crafting!
