yesterday I mentioned that today I was going to post on my blog, how I got started in this industry. I am warning you, the story is long!
someone locally e-mailed me the other day, and asked how I got started in the industry and asked for advice as to how she could get her start in the industry too. I wrote her a really long e-mail and decided to save it, because I realized I had never really written down the story of my scrapbooking career before! It's something I needed to document, so I kept it. I haven't changed the format of the e-mail, so forgive me if it sounds like I am talking to a "friend". That is how it was written.
I know I am blessed for the opportunities that have come my way. I KNOW that for sure. I also know that sometimes, opportunities come our way because we need to grow and learn for other hurdles or events in our lives. I believe I was given all these opportunities for that reason. Not to be the most talented scrapbooker, the most well known, or even the most creative person. I believe I was given the opportunities I have, because it I had to learn things about myself, that has prepared me to be a better mother, friend, sister, daughter, and wife. It's been a personal experience, and I have been blessed to get to do what I love along the way!
So here is my story and please forgive me for any grammar errors. It's definitely not my specialty! :)
