Girl Power.

I am a member of a design team. I don't think I'll ever get tired of saying that. For those of you who may be hard of seeing, I'll repeat myself "I AM A MEMBER OF A DESIGN TEAM." Anybody still having a hard time???? No? Ok.

Anyhoo, as a member of Good to the Last Crop, I recieve a kit every month. Apparently there's been quite a bit of hub and bub over "kits" these days. Having experienced the splendor of one of these beauties first hand, I must say I'm impressed at the ease with which one is able to scrap when the supplies are pre-coordinated! It's a great thing for people who walk into a scrapbook store and suddenly feel they have ADD due to the overwhelming selection.

The owner of this site, is a generous, hard working woman, who has built quite a business in the last two months. Doing remarkably well, as a matter of fact. The entire purpose of this post is to say .......

Women in business ROCK. Women who dig in, and make a company from the ground up, do the work, and take the hits, without the protection of a solid ego, inspire me completely. I may sound just a teensy bit stereo-typical here, but really. We woman do take a beating in the self-esteem department.

It's funny. I can say something cutting to Bill, like, "Man. You really screwed that up, didn't you?" and he looks at me like I'm crazy, and says "You have no idea what is going on! I'm really making headway here!" Now if he were to say something like that to me- I would droop, secretly cry, and believe that I not only screwed "that" up, but am a complete and utter failure at every thing I do. That's what I mean about the ego as protection.

I'm not really meaning to get into a rant about this. I just think that Women in Business are Heros. Uh Heroines. Whatever. It makes me really happy to see us walk that path that so many women before us toiled and sweated to forge.

It's a good thing.
Yes, even her.

So here are my layouts for the November Large Kit. Unfortunately, they are sold out, but the December Kit is a delight!!!! You should really check it out!!!!!!

I propose a toast. To Shawn, and to all brave and fearless business women, and to all brave and fearless women who work, and who raise children, and who do so much in their daily lives. To all women!!!! And to my mother, who is just too beautiful for words. I raise my ozarka bottle high!

I love these. You are really getting good at this! I'm impressed every time. By the way, Thank you for the beautiful birthday card!!! I love the little sun. He's so cute. And I think your hand writting is very artistic. I don't understand why you don't like it.
Love you dear!
