Yesterday I had an awesome mail day - receiving a bunch of scrappy supplies to start project life (yes, I will be playing catch up this weekend!). I was showing them to my 15yo dd and telling her about it, showing her the calendar journal I have been making notes in, etc. she stopped me, and excitedly said, "Momma, this is great - the last pages you made were pretty, but they didn't have much journaling/story on them. I would rather see less fluff and more story!"
Wow - I really had no idea that she had noticed, or that she would be excited about this. It was just the encouragement I needed!

Have a great week and happy scrapping
