bits and pieces.

I have been in Georgia attending Sweet Memories 2nd Birthday Party in Carrollton. Debby Schuh was their guest designer offering 3 classes. I first met Debby at ScrapbookNSuch in Wichita Falls, TX. Her albums are gorgeous; this is the third set of classes I've attended.

What I am doing today, is going through the "left-overs," you know, the remainder of the sticker sheets; the larger and sometimes complete sheets of paper, rub-ons, ribbon and other extra embellishments. Occasionally, I use something from one of these kits, but most often, they languish in a sack, and die. We have a shelter for battered women and children and I am going to call them to see if they want these bits and pieces. These items will be better put to use by these shattered persons, than by me. In fact, I will start a box for paper that I once loved but now want the matched sheets. It is amazing the changes I have seen since starting this journey in 2003.
So, I am hoping you too, will start a box and share your extra material with a shelter in your home town. I hope it will provide therapy and give encouragement for these women and children for the new direction they are taking. I wish them well.
