Net Worth

I know that browsing the Internet can be a real black hole time suck.  You sit down to look up one little thing. One link leads to another. The next thing you know three hours have vanished and it is time for the kiddos to come home for school and you to start thinking about that most dreaded of all questions: "What's for Dinner?"  On the other hand, the Internet can lead you to some of the most wonderful finds!

Need a good reason to buy less "stuff"?  Check this out!
  The Story of Stuff.  I think this should be required viewing for all students beginning in grade school. Maybe we could raise a generation of more thoughtful consumers...


How about some GLORIOUS new digi goodness?  No question here, I gotta have it!  And I don't feel so bad about consuming digi - no packaging, no shipping, no harmful toxins released into the atmosphere for the purchase of this little goody.

Do I need a disclaimer? No, I don't get anything for promoting Miki's kits - I bought this one myself - and in fact, Miki doesn't even know I'm promoting her kits over here on my blog - I just like 'em!

Free is always good! Looking to get your scrapping supplies organized?  Check out this FREE Decluttering and Simplicity Workshop for Scrapbookers which runs April 25-29.  Yep, I'm signed up.  Even though I just spruced up my scrap area, I'm sure it will need a refresher by then!

Ever catch yourself questioning your artistic abilities? Wondering if you ever have an original idea? Feeling like all you do is scraplift?  (for me, that is yes to all three).  Then you MUST go read this blog post.  What an uplifting read! Definitely worth your time.



And finally - for all my blog friends - my tribe of loyal followers - this one is dedicated to you - cause girl[s], you're AMAZING, just the way you are!

Hi Cheri, finally a catchup to say thanks so much for all the encouraging comments you've given me. It's taken me ages to get around everyone and I'm still going LOL but I had you on my list to follow so have just signed on. Looking forward to seeing and hearing more. And I just loved your link to the "steal like an artist" post. Very inspiring!!

I signed up for the class, too, but what I really love is the article, "How to Steal Like an Artist." I saved it so I can go back to it again.
