I’m looking forward to my conversation this week with Stacy Julian, founding editor of Simple Scrapbooks Magazine and founding partner at Big Picture Scrapbooking. She and I share a vision of scrapbooking as not just a crafts hobby but also as a means of becoming more present in one’s life and seeing what is truly valued, from a different perspective.

Observing the big picture enables you to see that everything is connected — within and without. When you can grasp the big picture, you can appreciate all of the possibilities that weren’t visible from other vantage points.

It’s a climb that’s worth the view.

    I loved the live chat on the Have More FUN! class with you and Stacy. Really eye opening. I ordered your book and have read through it once, now I’m reading it again and circling things I like and copying them into a journal to inspire and motivate me.
    I can’t believe you live in Sedona. I went to Mesa in Dec/Jan to visit my aunt (who winters there from Canada) and we went to Sedona and even though it was cloudy I thought it was absolutely breathtaking. I had no big desire to go to the Grand Canyon, but HAD to get to Sedona. My aunt & uncle would go to Scottsdale every xmas and I would see pictures of Sedona in his office.
    Anyway, I’m rambling now. So I’ll stop.

    Tracy – Thank you! I’m so glad that you enjoyed the class chat and book, and also that you had an opportunity to visit Sedona. You’ll have to come back when the sun is out.;-)

    I call it collage journaling. I like to use stuff I find and stuff right in front of my eyes like a bird making a nest.

    Colleen — The bird nest is a great analogy! You are such a fun writer.

    Jamie — as do you! We both understand, I believe, how to use our interests and passions to make a real difference. Thanks for the comment.
