I'm starting to think that every week is going to be a "long week". As my time was booked up with weeding through all the applications and packing up orders for Chickaniddy, I finally found myself for the first time alone in a quiet moment to think. I have been scrapbooking for 10 years and I have countless amounts of layouts bursting off a book shelf and out of a closet to prove it. Layouts decorated by darling collections created from other companies. Companies I've LOVED and still love! Companies like American Crafts, My Minds Eye & Crate Paper.
As I sat at my desk I noticed a layout I made for my booth and I eyes started to tear up. It's so unreal that I made this layout with products that I designed. Products I dreamed up and put together. It's so unreal to see kit clubs using the product I designed, to see stores and online shops who are carrying the collections, and talented friends designing their assignments with something I put my heart into.
I am so grateful for this quiet moment because it reminds me that I'm one lucky girl and I'm so happy I never gave up on my dream.
