November. The season of gratitude. A time to say thank you to all our team, but especially to Candice Palmer and Mary MacAskill to whom we bid a fond and sorrowful farewell. Thank you ladies for all the time and effort you have given and for all the creativity you have shared. You will be missed.
And true to the saying that the only constant is change, we have three new team members to introduce to you today. Meet Karen Grunberg, Keshet Starr, and Lisa Ottoson. You are going to be thrilled by the new photography, journaling, and scrapbooking skills that these women will bring to us. We hope you will take a minute to read their bios and leave them a warm welcome.
As we pick our monthly themes each month, we try to select something that moves you to actually create a page. Looking at lovely pages is fun, but our true purpose is to give you a bit of fire and a desire to scrapbook. Inspiration is truly what we hope to provide. To that end, we hope you enjoy this month's galley, Young Me/Now Me. Here is a bit of background.
A few members of our team happened upon a truly hilarious site, Young Me, Now Me. Not only was it good for a few laughs, but it also seems ripe for a scrapbook page. Like all inspiration pieces, the results can be literal, or loose. The goal: to create a page that might otherwise have gone undone. It might give you a chance to scrapbook a photo that doesn't actually have a background story. Or to mark a longstanding friendship. It may let you show the changes. Or the longstanding continuingsimilarities. It might give you a chance to see yourself through grownup eyes compared to those of your childhood. It might help you have a chance to record your feelings about a childhood activity and how it shapes your adult life. Or it could be the (sad) reminder of how quickly time passes. Perhaps the young me is actually your child looking remarkably like you. Or doing those things you loved to do as a child. Feel free to use this month's topic as an excuse to pose your teenager in a pose of his or her childhood. Or to see that you already have that photo! Let it be a reason to throw your arms (again) around someone you love. To record a change in yourself or your appearance. Or to note a continuing love. Or to realize how your life can change in the blink of an eye.
Happy November! Thank you for visiting and we hope you enjoy the new gallery!
