  • Illegal fireworks
  • How many bottles of Stickles is really “too many”
  • Toilet cleaning
  • and much, much MUCH more!

Welcome to the happiest, scrappiest 15 minutes of your week…

    Lain, just got caught up on your last few podcasts while scrapbooking 4th of July photos!  My overwhelm is typically a disconnect between everything I WANT to do and the time I have to do it.  Yet, I’m a teacher on summer holiday right now, so I’m blissfully enjoying time to read and scrapbook!  Like many of your listeners, I tend to spend too much time finding online inspiration and not enough time actually scrapbooking.  A couple years ago, I made the decision to stop buying product unless I had a specific project to work on.  As a CTMH consultant, I get the workshop on the go kit with my customers each month, but other than that, I do most of my scrapbooking using our online program, Studio J.  By making that small change, I’ve become far more PRODUCTIVE and have avoided the product overwhelm I was feeling.  I do admit, though, that I’m also contributing to the online education overload…I can’t help it, I’m a teacher and YouTube makes it so easy to share my knowledge with others!  And what I love best about the scrapbooking community is that most people are so appreciative of that knowledge and reach out by leaving positive comments.  I had a really rough school year and those positive strokes from people who actually cared about what I was teaching helped sustain me!   I feel blessed to be a part of such an amazing community drawn together by our love of scrapbooking!

    Hey Studio J! :) I think the overload of education is fantastic – something for everyone. Will definitely check out your videos! I like the idea of making a deal for yourself – not buying unless you have a specific project… or until you use X amount (that’s one I use a lot!). Yes, our community is FANTASTIC. We are lucky and blessed indeed! Thanks for listening. :)
