    If I haven’t told you lately Peppermint, you are my hero. Seriously. You inspire in so many ways. Your storytelling abilities, your outlook (on life, on scrapbooking), and your heart.

  • I love your post! I am the same way. I’m a hot mess of a chatterbox, too. Ha! That’s going to be my new favorite phrase. When I was invited to be on the Paperclipping Digi Show and I heard that the topic was “hidden journaling” I thought “For crying out loud–don’t we already have enough people out there who are not journaling? And why do people want to hide journaling anyway?” LOL! That’s just me. ;)

    I also love your encouragement to others to just be yourself, because your family and friends already KNOW you and ACCEPT you, so don’t beat yourself up about putting things in your own words–just journal! I feel the same thing goes for pictures. Okay, yes–I hate how my currently arms look. And my face has gotten really fat after having three (almost four now) kids. SO WHAT! My family loves me. Years from now my family will want to see me actually in the photos and on layouts. Who cares that I hated the picture? I’ll be dead. ;) LOL! Still… that one is a struggle for me. :P I’ve complained about how I think I look so much that my husband said he gave up taking snapshots of me because he doesn’t want to “get in trouble.” Sigh… that’s not good! LOL!

    Thanks for the great post!

    I am sold! What you wrote was amazing and so very, very true. My kids LOVE looking at the pictures in the pages I create, but they will love them so much more if I add more meaningful journaling to their pages. Thanks for reminding me!

  • Love this. I am NOT a chatterbox in real life. You know that old “When E. F. Hutton talks, people listen” slogan? That’s me… simply because people are so startled that I actually opened my mouth. ROTFL I am not mushy and sentimental, but as little as it is used, i do have a voice, and my favorite pages are the ones I’ve journaled where the voice really feels like “me”. :)
