Welcome to the new year! I hope that you enjoyed our "holiday cheer" over the month of December. A big thank you to Lisa Damrosch, for all of her wonderful ideas!
It's 2010! Wow!
I can't believe we have hit the decade mark again. Then again, when I look back at the last ten years much has happened. Remember Y2K and all the hoopla around being ready for the year 2000? Think of all the work that went into everything going forward with out a hitch. While Y2K is a distant memory, the reason I mention it is that without the hard work of a lot of people some things wouldn’t have continued to magically work on January 1, 2000.
I want you to remember that… change doesn’t happen by magic!
Sometimes change happens unexpectedly, like winning the lottery or losing a job. But most of the time change requires work; the discipline to eat healthy to lose weight, the dedication to go to class and study to earn that degree or the faith to grieve over the loss of a loved one or overcome an obstacle.
As you embark on your positive changes for 2010 and deal with the unexpected changes that are bound to occur, I hope that Big Picture Scrapbooking will continue to be part of your journey and that the BPS teachers can be a part of your positive changes!
To kick off the New Year, we are offering four classes that focus on making positive changes! We are also, giving away one seat in each of these classes. Just share within the comments below what positive changes you are making in 2010! We will randomly pick the winners Weds. January 6, 7:00 p.m. PST.
Kick off the New Year right with these great classes!
Reflecting on who you are can be a challenging, yet transformational experience. In creating an album to celebrate who you are, you will have an opportunity to explore, discover and create a record of what you care about, what touches you and where your passion lies. The point of this workshop is to challenge you to step back and tell your story and record what matters most to you.
This new workshop will guide you through the process of gathering, organizing, and using inspiration found in both ordinary and uncommon places, and will challenge you to think in new ways about color, design, and concept as it translates to the scrapbook page.
Take the first steps toward a life-long commitment to wellness with Lisa Cohen's Wellness Journey
Lisa Cohen returns to Big Picture Scrapbooking as a personal trainer, a nutrition counselor, a wellness and lifestyle advisor, and scrapbooker ALL wrapped into ONE. Join us as we document our wellness journey in an inspiring mini-album along the way. Each week, Lisa will introduce a new wellness project that will allow you time to acclimate before adding the next topic to your wellness repertoire.
If your goal is to become a better scrapbook layout designer with more confidence, join Cathy for an updated version of her popular, Design Your Life. Cathy believes that design is as much a tool for scrapbookers as a paper trimmer or adhesive. The more you understand, the better your pages will look and the more confidence you'll have as a designer. This class is an intensive but practical study of graphic design as it applies to the hobby you love.
All of these classes are in their first week. Register now so you don’t miss out!
We are happy you are part of the Big Picture Scrapbooking family this year and for many years to come! Here’s a few words of thanks from BPS founders Stacy Julian and Kayce Rehn!
"We are excited to read about your hopes and aspirations for 2010. We are looking forward to another fulfilling year helping you find the strength and creativity to make these positive changes. We appreciate so much your enthusiasm and support!"
