How many times can you hear the word "No"?

How many times can you hear the word "No"?

How many times can you hear the word and still be okay?

The answer: 16

In the past year I have submitted to 16 Design Team Calls. All of them have one thing in common. The word "No".

The latest came today. I'm sad. Yes, I will admit it. I'm sad. I really wanted it. But life will go on. you know....it really will. But still there's that burning question of what didn't they like?
I thought outside of the box, I made things that I thought they would like....and I liked them too. But the answer was still no.

So what am I going to do about it? Give up? Not scrapbook anymore? Nope. I"m going to keep on keeping on and still do my hobby. I'd love to find a manufacturer that would really love my work, someone who would love whatever I made. So I guess I have to continue to search for that "perfect fit".

But for right now...I can be sad. Because. It's O.K.

Happy Tuesday!!!

It's Tuesday! Do you know what that means??? Only two more day of having to get up early! This Friday there is NO school and we can sleep in!!! But I'm not going to, there is a place called "Michael's" and I have some 50% off coupons that I am going to go and use. Luckily dd will be with me so I can give her some money to go to one line while I am in another.

My Flower Pot

I've had this project in my head for awhile and well I finally decided to do it last week. It's what I call "My Flower Pot". It's the perfect garden! You don't need to water the flowers, put them in the sun and the flowers will never die!

Hope you enjoy looking at it! All the beads were designed and hand made by me! The beads were meant for another project, but they matched the colors that I wanted to use on the pot so well that I used them for this project. Hope the girls at Creative Escape understand! Yes, that is what the beads were for. I'm in a Charm Swap for Creative Escape and I had all of my charms finished, and well my mind wandered and I decided to use them on this....guess I better get started making the charms again....only 66 to make (so far!) It shouldn't take me too long!

I love the colors I used on the pot. They just look pretty to me! And if the sun shines on it, it has this little glow to it...And a plus is that my room is going to match my pot...once I get it painted. (July)

Hope everyone has a Happy Monday! Tomorrow I'm going to post another project that I made for my scrapbook room...and I think that this one is super pretty! (at least to me!!!)

Happy Sunday!

Yesterday I attended a scrapbooking event for Relay For Life. A friend of mine organized this crop and I had a wonderful time! I didn't go by myself. I was joined by four friends! It's always nice to scrapbook with friends! I managed to get five pages completed, two cards and almost completed a mini book project that I had been wanting to work on. I LOVE all day crops!

I've been doing a lot of cleaning around the house lately. I figure if the house is clean, then everyone is happy. And, if everyone is happy then I get to scrapbook. So, I've been trying to keep the house tidy as much as possible so that I can do just that! And this week I have high hopes for getting some major scrapbooking done! I just want to sit with the music on and scrapbook just for me. No pages calls, no contests, no Design Team work. Just scrapbook for the fun of it. And that is the best type of scrapbooking there is. Mainly because scrapbooking is supposed to be fun!

I bought myself two new toys today (okay, really three!). I finally bought myself a Cricut. M's was having a sale on them and for only $139.00 I am now the proud new owner of one. Now, if I could just get my house clean so that I can sit down and use it! The second new toy is the Xyron Design Runner. I had a 50% off coupon for M's and well, it was there, and so was I. Now I am home and so is it! The third toy I bought myself isn't really a toy, just an accessory for the Cricut. I bought a second font so that I could have a little bit of a variety. I didn't want to have just one font, so I bought it. And you know, I never really buy myself anything like these things and it feels really good!

Now if I can finish getting the house tidy to use them...

Have a great Sunday! I'm off to clean!
