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!
