I received in the mail today my contributor copies of the January issue of Scrapbook Trends. Congratulations to Nicole Pomeroy, another Aussie scrapper, who is in there too with her gorgeous page. Nic, as soon as I saw it I knew it was yours!
Northridge Publishing is always super generous and send two copies. So I'm giving one copy away.
These magazines can be pretty hard to come by in Australia and they are a superb magazine. The thought that goes behind the photography of each layout is amazing, and the photography is always stunning. They are quite a treat to sit and read.
To be in the running, all you have to be is a follower of my blog and leave a comment below by midnight (EST) Thursday 21 April 2011.
(Due to postage costs, only Australian residents are eligible for this. Apologies to my overseas readers!)
And speaking of Scrapbook Trends, one of my layouts is featured on a video on their blog at the moment.
See the layout on the lower RHS of the screen there? That's mine :). It appears in the April issue of Scrapbook Trends that is out currently. In the video Lori Allred takes the little flowers on my page as her inspiration for creating the cool scarf she's wearing in the video. How fabulous is that?
Thank you so much for your comments recently in response to my grumbles about my routine/working life. I tend to think of scrapbooking as being the domain of the SAHM. Which of course, as you showed, is not necessarily correct. I guess it's just that women who don't leave the home for eight hours a day to work in a job totally unrelated to their creative pursuits have more flexibility to create and probably do more of it. So they tend to be more visible in the scrapbooking industry. I have been comparing my output to them and feeling like I'm wanting. Which is ridiculous and I shouldn't compare. I know.
In my ideal life I would have unlimited time for exercise, coffee with friends, and being creative. But that's all dreaming. As I realised when I read your comments. And on reflection I don't think I would be happy if I was a lady of leisure. I actually like to be thinking and contributing and feeling that I have a purpose, and all that goes with having a professional career. Really :). Even if it doesn't sound like it some days ;). So thank you. I am once more grounded in reality.
