In case you haven’t noticed yet, I have a new tagline: Make something Scraptabulous – because CUTE matters! It may sound a little strange at first, so let me explain…. At our CTMH Dallas convention in July, we had the privilege of listening to the fabulous Stacy Julian as our keynote speaker. I know – how lucky were we?? LOVE HER!!! Stacy was so passionate and real, I could have listened to her all day. (Tangent – she used to be a CTMH consultant, how cool is that?) One of her points that resonated with me like a GONG was the simple phrase – Cute Matters. Now, I’m not sure if it’s because of my chemical engineering background or the thriftiness that comes with being a stay at home mom, but my focus has always been on the basics. Food, shelter, clothing. Money is spent on things like a furnace or a roof and clothing for my growing kids. In my mind, cute was a bonus, not a necessity. It wasn’t until we sold our house last year that I realized how much cute matters! I spent three weeks staging my home – I purchased all new bedding, drapes, rugs, lamps, and accessories. After 13 years in our first home – I finally LOVED it! And we sold it. In three days. Stacy talked about how when we see something cute, we *feel* cute! Whether you focus on one wall in your home or an entire room, we all need to create our cute spot. A place where your heart can be happy and you can feel special and creative and cute. When we feel good inside, life is so much better! So, in keeping with the phrase cute matters, I’m so excited to give you a sneak peek at one of our new home decor elements in the Autumn/Winter 2012 Idea Book – our Workshop on the Go Scroll Album Kit!!!! Cute doesn’t have to take a long time or be expensive – this project will take you under 2 hours and is priced at $35.95!!
