An inspiring evening
Saturday, May 31, 2008
Have I mentioned before how much I love Stacy Julian? Besides the fact that she's founding editor of Simple Scrapbook magazines, founder of bigpicturescrapbooking.com, and an international scrapbooking super-star, she's also a truly nice person. The cool thing is that we live in the same town, so I've been able to see her on several occasions already. But last week was the best yet! I've been a repeat student of Stacy's Library of Memories on-line class at Big Picture Scrapbooking, and Stacy invited all the Spokane area members to a crop at her house. There must have been a mix-up on the invites, or the date just didn't work out for some, but there were just THREE class attendees! Just imagine, hanging out at Stacy Julian's, eating brownies and scrapbooking late into the night. Her kids came and went throughout the evening (they were so GOOD, and adorable as well), Stacy shared her passion for music by showing off some of her favorite artists on the computer, and we got to see a few sneak peeks of some of Stacy's upcoming projects (my lips are sealed!)
With all of Stacy's celebrity and her success in the scrapbooking world, the best part about being with her in person is seeing how truly inspired she is for the craft, and how she lights up when she's sharing her excitement with someone. As Stacy would say... this is big.
