What I do

First, thank you to all of my Facebook followers on the messages regarding my blog/FB page dilemma!  LOVE LOVE LOVE people with opinions!  =)

Second, one piece of advice was, "what do you do?"  Obviously, I make cards and enjoy it to my little hearts content, but is that REALLY what I do?

"Back in the day", I LOVED to blog!  "Let's Talk Organizing" was the bomb diggity shiz nit; I loved organizing, speaking, doing podcasts, my bloggy friends were to die for, and it had a PURPOSE.  Now, I haven't a clue WHY I blog what I blog, because let's face it, there are so many COOL card blogs out there! I drool just thinking about Robin's and Lyssa's blogs and I can't wait to check my Google Reader in the morning to see what they created.  But that ISN'T me!  I am not a super cool card blog.  I don't do it every day and I don't feel like it has a PURPOSE.

Besides the fact, let's face it, I can get all my silliness out on FB and it's quick, easy and minimal.  So the last few days I have been really thinking HARD about "what I do" or rather "what can I contribute?"  I am going to let the super cool "carders" work THEIR magic and I am going to work MINE!

Can I make a super card?  You betcha!  Do I have kick ass classes?  Damn well better believe it!  Am I the bomb diggity shiz nit when it comes to organizing?  OH YES!!!!!

Let's Talk Organizing may be retired, but my brain sure isn't!

So, ladies, friends, people with opinions, THANK YOU!  Thank you for your insight, your help, twenty cents worth and putting up with my blundering!  In other words, Gooseberry Cottage is going to work!  I will still be making cards, of course, but I am also going to focus on what I KNOW.  Organizing!  =)  Organizing stamps and workshops, classes and supplies, craft rooms and fun solutions!  I was always mesmerized by Aby Garvey and now I have a new found respect for that crafty lady!  And Marcia, you HAD to know I would be back...eventually!

Just think, Krys, when you first started following my blog all those years ago, I SHUDDERED at the thought of organizing a scrapbook I have a whole cottage!!!  LMAO   I think somewhere Karma is laughing LOUDLY!

Thanks again!

Suzanne the stamping organizing diva!

  5. (Oops, sorry - you know how anal I am about typos...)
    How funny! I wasn't on Google Reader for over week - lots is going one here - but I popped on and was scrolling through your posts when, what to my wandering eyes should appear, but my name!!!
    I owe you BIG TIME, Suzanne! I STILL use your organizing hint about "crossing off" my call back lists and to do lists with a highlighter rather than a pen. And I've passed it along to my colleague who sits next to me (she uses pink, I use standard yellow)! Don't worry, though, I give you all the credit!
    Every time I organize something or buy a new planner, I think of you! And yea, who'd have thunk it? A whole scrapping room? You?!?!?!?!

  6. LMAO I know!!! When I first started making cards and I bought my first pack of paper I thought to myself, Krys is NEVER going to believe me. Then when Stephan agreed to build the cottage I thought, "Yep, Krys is going to die!" LMAO

  7. Key words: FIRST pack of paper...
    HA, HA, HA!!!
