Thanks everyone

I really like that all of you took the time to read my blog and comment! Thank you for the kind comments and support. Leaving the DT was a difficult thing to decide but I feel like I want to move on. Someone once said to me, nobody really ever leaves comments but you better blog anyway. I say, why bother? It is funny, those same people never leave comments so I never know if they are coming around. I am a little ticked off about that but perhaps it works better that way!

I plan on really trying to keep up on my blog after my DT course is over, might even do a makeover with some fun little add-ons. I think that I will try and focus on it more. Many say that I have a knack for writing insightful stuff...Someday I will post some of my past diet blog...for an example. I do know that my life is pretty full right now...and I know myself...in order to do any few things well...I cannot be overscheduled. I know that I feel a lot of pressure from work and being on the MB makes it hard to be everywhere. And part of the other issue is that the pictures I post sometimes do not post right so I tend to ignore it (the blog) as it frustrates me.

I believe that I have been an exemplary DT member and MB member at SASover the past year and I really like the people that I have gotten to know. I won't pepper my post with links, as you can find them all in the last post. I have found that being on a DT is a lot more than making layouts with somebody else's stuff. I feel like I stepped up to the plate and did well with that, being an active member on the MB, talking to people, answering their posts, starting conversations, as well as being active during the crops and fun activities throughout the year, as well as being a positive person! NOT TO MENTION the almost 7000 (YES 7000) posts that I accumulated in the past 11 months. I am proud of that accomplishment and when I leave, I will leave with my head held high, that I was a proud member of the SAS DT, and did so with pride, kindness and encouragement for my fellow MB and DT members! Oh, and I am not leaving the SAS board either...I will still hang out, but maybe not as much time per day...giggle...giggle! So my friends, my little post-reflection, reflection is over. Love and HUGS to all my real friends! Lara

**********UPDATE--I finally figured out how to fix those @#$% pictures in my posts...I just adjust the text code to a pixel width that shows up on my screen...I do not know how I figured it out but I figured that it couldn't hurt to try! WAAAHOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! NOw I shall blgo more often, I promise! =O)

7000 posts in 11 months! Wow...I am very impressed. It took me almost two years to get that many on the SC message board and I know I talk a lot. You must have loved (love) it there. :o)

You did an exemplary job on the team! I'm glad that we got to work together and I'm sad that you decided not to reapply. I understand your decision, and I'm sure we have all been there at some point. I am one of the readers guilty of not commenting, but I do read - so I hope you continue to blog and I hope to keep seeing you on the board!

7000 posts in 11 months?!!!!!! wow, you sure are chatty!! lol. that made me calculate: if 30 days = 1 month, then 7000 / 330 days = 21 comments/day!!! (and this is said by someone who had asked lauri earlier for her 100th gallery post charm). lol!

xoxo,
janis

Oh Lara ... I'm so sad that you aren't reapplying ... I do love your scrapbook page designs ... they're colorful, insightful, thoughtful and fun ... but knowing that you'll be staying with the board makes me happy. You've been a great inspiration to me as a regular member ... I've enjoyed all your posts and questions and I wish you well with work and life in general ... I know it's hard to juggle everything in a daily life and then add in the fun stuff too. I've bene on DT's in the past and as much as I loved them and the people I designed with, I felt like I was losing touch with the reason I began scrapping so I stepped away fro DT stuff and I've enjoyed my regular scrapping time just as much and maybe more. Keep up the great pages ... and I'll see you at SAS.
