Well, here is a little story.  I recently started doing swaps at scrapbook.com. Last week, I saw sign-ups for a vintage tag swap. So, I happily signed up. The next day, I received a response from the hostess. She said I could not join her swap because my work was not "good enough." I was so sad. Made me doubt my work, my joy for scrapping, how I identify myself, etc. I replied to the host stating I was surprised and sad to hear I was being excluded. I said I have taught scrapbook and rubber stamp classes. I have been on design teams...  She replied saying that she is the hostess and makes the rules, and that I needed to be gracious and mature about her decision.  Basically, she is rejecting me and I need to grace her.  Basically, she is going to be rude and I need to just take it.  After a lot of thought, I replied with the only thing that made sense to me ... "God bless you."  May she see some day how excluding people, and telling them they are "not good enough" was a choice hopefully she should not repeat. I am thrilled to tell you, 3 scrappers on that chat thread contacted me and asked me to privately swap with them. Beautiful!  These people also visited my gallery and left positive comments about my work.  Love!  Let's build one another up, for with that we shine ourselves!  This is a tag I made last night to send to one of my new friends.  One who reached out to me, and made me smile.  Thank you!

Mojo Monday 385

 

 


It is Mojo Monday time and Julee has created another fabulous sketch, so many layers and possibilities. Let's get started, be sure to check out the mojo makers blogs for more inspiration. 


To play along, just make a project using the provided sketch and upload it to your blog or online gallery. Then leave a link to your project using the linky widget at the bottom of this post. Please use a direct link to your Mojo post and not just your blog.

If you upload to online galleries, please also use tag/keyword MOJO385. Verve stamps are NOT required to participate, and you can enter as many times as you want.  As always, if you don't have a particular shape, feel free to substitute.

There is no time limit - you can always play any week at any time, but I will close the linking form on Sunday night, February 22 at 8:00pm (Mountain). That way there's no confusion which linky is the current one.
