Inspiration... and a freebie!

You're gonna have to read for the freebie today :)


Here is my post for the Favorite Things challenge at Scraphead.com's forums. I hosted this challenge. It's not too late to get a layout in, a little bird tells me you have a little more time... (hint hint)

I found this on Photobucket today, randomly surfing, and somehow I just really liked it. It is so true about most women I know. It certainly suits me anyway. I think I might use it for a layout about myself, or at least to inspire one. Maybe it might inspire you too.


Some thoughts on my "Unperfectness"


I am slow, I walk slow, I clean slower, and my body doesn't always go as fast as others would like it to. But, I do things right the first time, I notice the little things that happen while others miss when they are hurrying to get where they are going.


I am sensitive. Little things get to me. I can't sometimes handle the ugly things people do to each other. But, my friends know they can always count on me to understand when they are hurting. They can confide in me knowing that I will listen with my heart.


I am cheap. If I can avoid spending money on something, no matter how big a pain in the butt it is to do a different way, I will take the free route. I hate taking my car to the mechanic to do things I can do myself. I hate paying for something I can make for myself for even 10 cents cheaper. I think that is what made me get into freebies and scrapbook design. It has inspired me to create many things for myself rather than take the easy route and buy them. Some might criticize me for it, it drives my hubby nuts, but then again... I can afford more necessities this way.

What are some of the Unperfections that you and I might have in common? Do you celebrate them or do they make you insecure? Do you feel self-conscious about them or do you embrace them and find ways to appreciate them?

wow, E! i haven't stopped by for a while and i can't believe how busy you've been! those ribbons and bows are wonderful! i hope you'll include them in other patterns, hint hint! i'm slow too. i scrap slowly, eat slowly, walk slowly, i do just about everything slowly - except read, lol!

i'm glad to hear you're mom is coming along. is maia still enjoying her new school? you've really got your hands full these days! how is it affecting your reduction plan? i saw somebody had a cute little ticker for weight loss. that might be a fun way to brag!

as for the conflict between making freebies and needing to sell, you could do two parts for each kit and give one away and sell the other for a couple dollars here on your blog. that way, people could get great freebies without feeling like they 'should' donate when they can't afford it and those who can afford a little more could purchase the coordinating kit right here. just a thought.

take care!

Thanks so much for this freebie. I was reading your blog about being imperfect. I'm sensitive like you, the tiniest thing can upset or hurt me. I have that same picture on my myspace page, just to remind me that it's ok to not be perfect.
