The Garden Gateway is finally out! Go and click that phrase and it will take you to the official newsletter of the Scrapping Garden. :) You find a familiar name there. Yes I am there!! I am so proud to say that I am one of the ladies behind the premier issue of the newsletters.
Here's how it happened: I was at work and I was checking my emails. It was the week when the Scrapping Garden's gallery and shop crashed. I got some notices that some crops and chats were cancelled but I still got some reminders from the Yahoo! Group. I decided to check-in at the chat room, thinking that I was 30 minutes early for the chat. There I found Robin, Cheryl, Pat and Judy having a meeting and it was about the planned newsletter. (Obviously, the chat was cancelled.) I volunteered to work on some tutorials and Cheryl asked me to make some for newbies. I was sooooo excited. Cheryl was telling us that there was a reason why we were led to the chatroom that hour :D Pat was assigned as our team leader and she asked me to come up with interview questions for Michelle. She is our featured new designer. Isn't she lovely? I also like her kits. I was working on one of her kits so Pat also asked me to make a sticKit as one of our premier issue's freebie. (Cheryl said that the site is getting popular because of the beautiful freebies handed out randomly. :) Thanks to our generous designers!)
So here is our first issue. I am happy to know it turned out good and that many ladies liked it. I showed it to Liz and she was more than happy to see it. Pat, Judy and I will be scheduling a chat soon for the next issue. ;)
I am happy working on special assignments at the Garden but I hope I have more time (and energy and a faster connection) to work on layouts and meet my requirements. I have so many things to attend to right now and I don't have enough time to scrap. I really, really want to create kits and also make layouts but I just don't know where to find time and energy. Oh wellllll.......
