The Fruits of My Labor

The talented and warm Christina invited me to join a postcard swap recently. Not being an artist really, I sweated a bit about joining in, but in the end I really enjoyed it. And after many late nights putting my scrapbooking skills to use, I came up with the finished product.


Thanks to Christina for including me! I am looking forward to getting postcards from all over in my mailbox soon! And, I'll share them with you all once I do!

I also wanted to add something regarding yesterday's post about the strange girl in my class. I realize that perhaps my story came across as mean or insensitive towards someone who was less fortunate. Those who know me personally, know that I'm not that type of person. I actually feel good that I am known by classmates as being the person who was nice to everyone in my class. This girl, however, was mean and obnoxious even when you tried to be kind or compassionate. She was a difficult person to feel sorry for, because of her continued actions. Perhaps this was a defense mechanism on her part, but she never let up and many in our class did not talk to her at all or openly ridiculed her. Anyway, I felt like I should clarify because I am not a hateful person and I definitely was never one to ridicule someone in a mean-spirited way.

OK, have a great day everyone!

Your talents are way more than I can even aspire to. Scrapbooking--one thing I don't ever want to try for fear it will consume me.

Beautiful postcard! I can't wait to see the ones you receive, too. I applaud all craftiness!

And, Linda, sounded like a real heifer. It just sucks to know that she didn't outgrow that and become less heifer. HA! Anyone can tell from your writing that you have a huge heart.

I personally have always known of your "scandalous behavior" and reported it to anyone who would listen. No one is listening so you are safe! Thanks for the visit and the vote.

I think you need to post more of your scrapbooking on your site, because judging from this postcard, it's fantabulous.

And we all know you're a raving bitch on the inside. Quit trying to hide it. ;)

I am secretly joining the scrapbooking cult too. But don't tell anyone.
Post card - Wow. YOU are an artist! You are able to create in so many ways. That is a gift. And I (someone who likes to think I know you well even though I have been absent from your sctive daily life for a while) totally took your last post in the spirit it was given. You are one of the least judgemental people I know.
