The new challenge is up over at So Tell Me Your Story. It involves doing a layout with a picture of you and journaling about 5 things you like about yourself. It is not easy to do a layout about yourself, but is such a worthwhile experience. My 5 things are that I am reflective, honest, determined, inituitive and creative. I need those traits to keep me sane and well-balanced in this world. My journaling speaks to that. It reads: I need those traits to balance out the rest. Reflective helps with a tendency to have strong opinions. Being determined helps me to take risks--be vulnerable. My creativity balances how structured I can be. I get by on intuition & honesty. I am who I am. I am uniquely me.
Hard to always remember that. Especially in this scrappy world. I have lost my confidence a bit. I get the latest issue of a magazine or see people's amazing talent on their blogs, and I compare. I know I shouldn't because I am who I am. Sometimes it sneaks up on me. Happens at work sometimes, as a mom--it just happens. So doing a layout like this and sharing it helps me to remember. I am the only me there is. The good, the bad, the ugly. Embrace it. LOL!!
I encourage you to create a layout expressing what you love about yourself. Don't we all need little reminders some times?!


  1. Fabulous journaling, my friend! And so true...we are all One of a Kind!

  2. I feel the same way sometimes, but then I remember that I can't "be" anyone else, or do what they do. You know? Love this layout, so honesty and true!

  3. Love your page, Stacey! It's a good thing to stop and reflect upon ourselves once in awhile.

  4. Great post Stacey. I feel the same way sometimes, especially in the scrappy world. But we are who we are, right? I think you are super talented and very special.

    Love your layout too! By the way, I'm now one of your blog followers. :)

  5. Stacey....Great page! Love the journaling and super picture!
    Your work is beautiful...we are all one of a kind and everyone is so different including our art. I feel the same way sometimes to but as long as we love what we are doing that it all that matters!
    Take it from a friend...Your work is always beautiful...I always am inspired by you!!!
