this morning when i woke up… (and same thing yesterday)… i was so amazed at how beautiful it was looking out the window. it really is the best time of year here. the desert is blooming, the air is cool and crisp and the sun is so radiant… lights up everything. and all i can do is look at it, because i am too exhausted to get up and take advantage of it! so lame! i got to thinking about morning people today. you know these types… they are up at 5 am, writing you emails… chipper as can be! what is that? how is that possible? and yet.. i feel this little tingle of jealousy. for how happy, and energetic they are in the morning. because, quite frankly, i am a SLUG. (and usually grouchy as well!)
so here is my idea. next week, i am going to TRY to be a morning person. i am going to go to bed EARLY. like 9pm. and then, i am going to wake up at 5am. mind you… i am not CONVERTING to morning person-hood…. just going to give it a try… and at the very least, ENJOY these amazing spring desert mornings. drink them in! maybe i will feel happier… more alive… maybe it will inspire me in new ways! you never know!
as for today…
i am leaving for alabama! i have to show you the cute ‘she’ inspiration book we will be making…
the ScrapETC. event is all about inspriation… and i think by now, it’s clear that i am so totally inspired by the ‘she’ concept… so i will be talking about that… and how to start a she album and stuff like that… (this little quote book is made from a ‘retro’ frame kit… it’s all-inclusive!)
the other class i am teaching is about the importance of PLAYing! maybe you remember all the playing cards that me and a bunch of my team and friends created for CHA summer/memory trends displays… to show the intense side of some of the products… well, i made a little book out of some of mine…and i LOVE it! the messages on these little babies are so inspring and they are really fun to look at! so we’ll be starting a PLAY book, and giving some challenges about conveying MESSAGES through your art… what is it that you WANT to say!…. say it! be heard!
so cute. i love it.
i think it’s going to be an awesome weekend!
i am excited to play with all of you who will be there! so many of you have emailed me and i am exicted to meet you in person. Monique is killing herself off to create an amazing inspiring and motivating weekend! let’s make sure we all give her lots of LOVE… i know that my demands alone are enough to put her OVER THE EDGE! (i am very demanding, huh monique!) LOL…..
so, i am going to exercise, pack and if the stars line up, get a pedicure before we leave!
see… if i were a morning person, this would all be done!
so nanci, and franni… you are my inspiration!
