In my early days, I was pretty much in the limelight all the time. Moving to Penang was a wonderful change, a moving backwards of sorts and yet, moving forward, to a simpler, more meaningful existence. Being able to blend in, retreat into quiet spaces became something I treasured. My new uniform in this laid back, island paradise- jeans.
When smidapaper came to be, things changed. It became important to get out from backstage. Can a tiger change it's stripes?
Scrapbooking is such a personal pursuit. So much a baring of your soul. So much a sharing of your life, and, you know what, that's beginning to be really ok with me. My early pages were 'journaling free'. Privacy is privacy but, where was the story? What was the point? Well, things change. You're reading my personal blog and I'm journaling on my layouts. (even Esther is ) Who knew that scrapbooking would change so much. Who knew it was freeing? Who knew that your authentic self would emerge?
Even as we have evolved through this beautiful art, so has smidapaper. Here's a flashback. One year ago at our old location on Beach Street. Have we come a long way? To those of you who knew us then and still come around, HUG! How has scrapbooking changed you? Newcomers, you're in for a big surprise. And you are going to love it!
Oh, and thanks for visiting my blog.
