I took a leap.....

...and FINALLY signed up for the latest Cathy Zielske class over at Big Picture Scrapbooking.
I know, you are saying, so what's the big deal? You've taken classes before!
True....but the classes I have taken are about scrapbooking in general. Techniques, new ideas, etc.
This class is called ME: The Abridged Version.

Ack!

Panic set in. ME? Why would I want to scrapbook about me, JUST ME? It actually made me nervous. Yes, I often say "I'm Fabulous" (in a joking manner) but come on.....this hasn't exactly been my most fabulous year. I was also concerned about whether I would have the time. Then I had a chat with
Lee, who has taken many classes and she offered a very valid point - I would still be learning, which was my goal this year! So I took the leap and registered.

The course is an A to Z of ME. It will be exploring myself. I am generally a "put it all out there" kind of gal, but there is aways more to it than we know right?

I can describe myself in many words, good and bad. But often we see ourselves differently than others. We were given a pre-class assignment to make a tag book with the letters Ato Z and use it to jot down words or phases that characterize me. Ideally, this is going to help in creating the album, assisting with the journalling and essentially giving a true reflection of who I am. I have started to do this, but came across a fantastic idea that would take this to another level.

This is where YOU come in!


I am borrowing this idea from my brilliant friend, Lee who borrowed from her brilliant friend Brenda! Gotta love the land of blogging! To take it to another level, Lee and Brenda have asked family and friends to participate in order to achieve that true reflection.

I would like to ask the same of you, no pressure!
Is there a word that comes to mind when you think of me? A phrase maybe?
Only think I ask is that you be brutally honest! And before you all jump, I already have Bitch under the "B" tag! LOL.

Please leave a comment here or feel free to email me at ohara.c at rogers dot com with your word or phase and why it is, if an explanation is necessary.

I appreciate your honesty and helping me achieve my goal in this class.
I am continuing to strive!

Much Love
Char

How bout those? Although we've never met, this is what seems to strike me about you. ;) Fun and full of life!
