I Got My "CALL"!
I have been waiting and waiting, dreaming, hoping, praying, loosing hope, hoping again... checking the boards, checking my email...This was during the looongest weekend of my life! I entered the Memory Maker's Masters for the first time not really hoping to win but to at least be able to tell myself that I tried. But as the day of the scheduled announcement camer nearer, I realized that I really wanted this so much!
The Memory Maker's Magazine was my first source of inspiration when I was starting scrapbooking and it was my dream to bear the title of MM "Master" one day.
On the night I got the call I was actually away from home. I called my Dad (yet again) to check if I got any calls and my Dad said - yes there was an overseas call for you!! So you can just imagine how frantic I was and I wanted to rush home at that time. I checked my mail, and there it was - a message from Patty!! In her email she was asking "are you there? I know there is a big time difference". So I emailed her back (and my internet connection was going crazy at this time) asking her : "Patty is this what I have been hoping and praying for? If you can,please call me at ...." And.. after a few minutes I received my "CALL" from none other than Patty Craft. She asked me if I was the one on the line and proceeded to tell me " I am calling to tell you that you have been selected as one of the 2008 Memory Makers Masters"! Wow!! I could not believe it! I was shaking! She was soooo nice! And then she told me, ok now I have to ask you this question "Do you accept the position of being one of the 2008 Memory Makers Masters?" I tell you, this was even more exciting than my husband's marriage proposal (shhh!) LOL! And I said: "YES! A thousand times YES".
Right now I am still in cloud nine. I am just so happy, thankful, and honored to have been given this opportunity. I still can't believe that I am deserving of this title - I really am not! I'm not a master of scrapbooking. But I do love this craft so much and it is a part of my life. I will just enjoy the year ahead and try my best to be worthy of the title. The previous masters said it was gonna be a wild and fun ride! I can't wait to begin the journey.
