It Doesn't Sound Nice...But It's All About Me!!!

I know it doesn't sound very nice. I see "It's All About Me" on t-shirts and I think wow, a little conceited aren't you? But this is not where this is going for sure!

I was looking through YouTube the other day and I happened across this video about this web site and I have to tell you I haven't been this excited about something in scrapbooking in a long time. I think this is what so many of us need. Well at least I know I need it...very much.

We all scrap about people and things that are important in our lives but as often has been said we are the ones missing in the pictures or on the scrapbook pages! We journal about all the kids, the husbands, the parents, the nieces and nephews, so that the future generations will know all about them and remember them, what they did, what they looked like, what their personality was...but what are we sharing about ourselves with the future generation? Are we going to be forgotten?

And yet as I was looking at this wonderful site I am also wondering...what do I really know about myself? I don't think I really do know myself as well as I think I do.

Take a look at this video that I found.

I thought that was great. Not only do I think it a wonderful thing to leave heritage about ourselves...I think that scrapping our feelings and who we are is great therapy!

Did you hear about the kits that are available? That is so wonderful. I went to the website and I think the kit is absolutely fantastic. I have been wanting to get into kits but have not been able to find one that I really like. I think I am going to try this one kit at a time for now...even though there is a savings on purchasing a subscription for 3 or 6 months...and see if I like it as much as I think I will. Also on the website, there is great inspiration of all kinds as aids to inspire you for the theme for the month.

Go to the site and have a look around. Scrapping From the Inside Out. I am sure you will be as impressed as I am.

I have signed up to take a digi class online from Paula Gilarde mainly due to the urging of Terry aka beehive on Memory Makers. I am looking forward to it with some nervous anticipation. I don't know why, because computers don't scare me as far as using them. I guess I need to just chill out!! LOL

Speaking of chilling...I am definitely not chilling with the company that hosts my signature at the bottom of my post. It has been down an entire day and I find that unacceptable. But, can't tell them that...since their site is down. Bummer. Going to practice least until I can get a hold of them!!!

I still have other things to accomplish yet and the night is no longer young. I need to move on for now.

This is my thought for now.

Barb-I took a class "Scrap Yourself" with Debbie Hodge and I have to say it was by far the best class I have ever taken. She is offering it again. See the details here:
I am going to take it again.

I'm doing Book of me and it will be at least 2 albums so I will write a lot about me, and I dont't know if two will be enough, we'll see...and I will do a BoM-album for my husband too.

Ann-Marie, what is a BoM Album? Glad you stopped by my blog. Thanks for sharing.

Please put some of your album or LOs on the community Flikr on my blog. Would love to have them.

I have a book about me that I add to every now and again, usually when I'm trying to get through an emotion or when I find a fun quiz to fill out. My last entry was about my mixed emotions having both kids in school full time and my role as a SAHM.
I do agree, it's wonderful therapy!
