Life is good......

I had told some online friends that I'd update them tonight when I got home so, here's my little update.
A little background first....we've been stationed here for 3 years. In that time I haven't really found friends that like to stamp and scrapbook. I am NOT a person to initiate anything....I am very shy. But this year I decided it was time for me to change not having friends who enjoy what I do so I looked on the SU website and found a demo in my town and even contacted her!
Welllllll.......today was her calendar club and she graciously invited me to come over. I couldn't stay for the whole thing as I had to pick up Matthew but I made myself go--even though I had panic attacks worrying about going--like I said, I'm shy!!
I must say, this was one of the best things I've made myself do! I didn't work on any projects--this time--but got to know the ladies and wow, I just really, really enjoyed myself.
It was also good because I've been wanting to get back into my scrapbooking more and these ladies are more scrappers than stampers so I now have new motivation!!
I am just so thrilled and it was just awesome!
So there ya have it!
Now off to make supper, do baths and then I'll try to catch up in blogland!
Have a happy night!

Danni, that is a fabulous story. I am sooooo happy for you. One of my best stamping buds is my SU rep who I also looked up on the website and contacted so I can have a party. We have been stamping buds ever since.

Good for you Danni!! You are so sweet, so I am sure if you let yourself be around people a little more, you would have your phone ringing off the hook!! :0) I think you seem pretty great and I think the ladies that met you were lucky.:)

Good for you! You've got no reason to be shy...you've got such a fun and loving personality and I can't imagine anyone not just loving you to pieces!! Glad you had a great time. It's hard making new friends every three years!
hugs, Jami

So happy for you Danni. Don't know why no one would like you. All the emails and the phone conversation tell me you would be a fun person to be around. I am really glad you made yourself do this, I think you have found another whole group there.

Great for you Danni!!!

I do not know what I would do without my 2 Su Down lines one my next door neighbor that help me and we talk about stamping and have so much fun doing things together!!!

Plus I have loved becoming "Real" friends with Janna Hull it is so nice to talk to someone on the phone that gets me and gets my true passion and need for stamping and blogging and stuff like that!!!

I am so happy for you!

I get the Shy thing!!! That would totally be me if I was a Military wife!!! I have lived here for like 15 years now and am just starting to make friends and stuff. I moved here when I was 17 so I should have a ton of friends!!!!

Way to go Danni! Sometimes you have to challenge yourself and then you end up with realizing that "why didn't I do this earlier". Glad that you had fun! Kramisar - Anki
