A (digi) Place to Call Home

Some of ya'll have watched my journey thru the digital world.  I stumbled into a speed scrap with my friend Alamama (in real life Christine) over at Scrap Matters a few years ago.  I had just been uprooted from friends for over 20 years and the internet kept a fun connection with Christine.  Christine was a Creative Team Member at Scrap Matters, a sweet and friendly forum.  I played there and then played another place, and then another.  I then got a few Creative Teams myself...over the past few years, I have collected a few designers that allowed me to play with their designs

there were a few one kit calls (OKCs) here and there...but all in all, my EHD is full with some beautiful designs.

Last week, I resigned from the 8 I was on at the time.   I knew it was coming, but I didn't want to walk away from the digital scrapbooking world.  I have some great friends and superb mentors.  I go to a fun chat on Tuesday evenings over at Scrap Book Graphics, and sometimes after the scheduled 1 hour is over, the ladies just stay and babble about life in general.  One brought up wanting an assistant, another brought up saying she would pay 5 times the amount to have someone assistant her and help her stay organized.  My heart jumped...oh would I love to help her!!
Then Miss Behaving, my friend and pushy broad, said, Anne does it for me, ask her!!  I timidly, (now you know me, timid is not my personality, unless I am on unstable ground), said, "Tangie, I would love to help you in any way possible."  That was it...then an hour later, Tangie and I chatted...
I am now her Woman at Arms.  I help assist her in ways to make life easier for her...and organize calendars, spreadsheets and a running activity list! I love it!!  This is like a re-invention of scrapping for me, now I scrap for the pure fun, and get to play with Tangie Baxter...pretty great all around!
