Esprit Magazine

Sorry for long blogging hiatus. Moving in sub-Arctic temperatures is test of endurance, and I've needed every spare minute to pack, load up the vehicle and transport to the new house, where I then put it all into the appropriate rooms, grab my empty boxes and repeat. Actually, I have found that I have very little other than toys (not mine, J's), dishes, clothes and scrapbooking stuff. And by scrapbooking stuff I mean paper (lord the paper), embellishments, books/magazines (even I'm stumped on this one) and old photos (printed out and traditional). And now I have albums galore! AC sent me my album shipment, so I'm excited to finally put these pages safely in albums. They also sent iheartyou. I love the color red, so I love it all. I'll try to get a photo when we finally move in. The movers are coming for the furniture on Friday (please, please, please don't snow--again.)

This is a funny story. I was contacted by Celine at Esprit Magazine a little while back to be profiled for Celine's favorites section. Esprit is a French scrapbooking magazine. I had no idea, had to google. I told dh about it and he said, "People know you in France?" To which I sarcastically replied, "Yeah, sure, I'm like David Hasslehoff. I'm huge in France." To which we both burst out laughing hysterically because I'm so absurdly stupid sometimes. :)
Here are some images of the magazine, I loved looking through it. So much good stuff in there:
The cover
Table of Contents
My article and pages:
And I just thought this article on misting was the coolest, so pretty:
So thank you Esprit Magazine and Celine. I'm not quite sure what you said about me, but I'm incredibly flattered just the same. Well, I will translate one question because I think the people who inspire me should know (and like me they may not know much French):
Q: She asked me which other scrapbookers inspire me.
A: To which I replied, Kelly Goree, Jen Jockisch, Keisha Campbell, Stephanie Dagan, and Lisa Dickinson. And if I had not had brain freeze I should have added Wendy Bretz to that list as well but I forgot. I'm certain said brain freeze occurred because I use the word "potty" as standard vocabulary in every other sentence as of late. It crashed the whole system, I'm certain this was the glitch. :)
Well, I'm too cold to type anymore and I've lost track of what day it is at the moment. Happy weekend to you! A big hello to anyone checking in from France too. :) Until tomorrow (or the next day, geez don't hassle the hoff. :) :) :))
