Life's Little Disappointments

The Doodlebug design team was announced this morning and my name is not on the list. I mentioned to Alexa last night that they were going to announce today and because I hadn't yet gotten an email, I most likely did not make the team. She got all quiet and teared up and started crying. She was THAT disappointed for me. I was so touched by her support, encouragement, and emotions. I told her I was okay with it and we talked about disappointments in life and how to handle them. I told her that I submitted as a challenge to myself and that I was happy with my submission and that's what really counts (plus the fact that I have two cards I can now send and a holiday decor piece to display). Now it's time to refocus on why I REALLY scrapbook — to record our daily lives and the ups and downs that go along with life. :)

Congratulations to everyone who made the team!

  1. Alexa is such a sweetheart and so caring, Lisa. She is a real gift. Sorry about the Doodlebug team. It truly is their loss!


  2. I can't count the number of times I have been disappointed by not making a team or a call. This industry can be tough...there are so many great scrapbookers and crafters out there. Please keep trying! You are definitely good enough! Hang in there. :)

  3. It sure is tough, Pam. I'm sorry you've experience the let down too but thank you for the encouragement. :)

  4. lisa - i saw your projects and loved them! just keep on truckin' along -

    disappointments are part of life, right? you gave your daughter a great lesson in learning how to cope with them!

  5. I have had the exact same kinds of disappointments so I sure understand. I do think that it counts that you were happy with your submission and you did your best. Focusing on why you even do this craft is what counts. Look fir the next opportunity!

  6. I feel ya Lisa. BG is slated to announce tomorrow and I've gotten no invite. Guess I didn't make it too. It's disappointing but it's good to remember why we do what we do isn't it.
