These Shoes

I love to scrap the little bits of our everyday life.  As much as people contribute to the quality of our lives, so do a lot of inanimate objects, and I love to give them their fair place in my scrapbooks.

We have a lot of dance shoes in our home,  between all of us we have at least 10 pairs.  In my opinion, it's Théa's dance shoes that make the most music.  This girl can dance, it's just in her.  She would say that her favorite style of dance to do is Jazz.  That may be, but I would say that she excels best at Tap.  She's that kid who taps all the time.  While she's brushing her teeth, waiting for her toast to pop, and just about any other time she's got a second or two to spare.  To me these shoes are like musical instruments, and I love the music they make.

Well folks, today is the day I find out if I've made the short list for My Scrapbook Nook's design team call.  I'm just as nervous as I was last time around.  I've second guessed myself a little more this around.  Wondering if I've submitted the right projects.  Wondering if my blog is attractive enough, if it gets enough traffic for me to be considered, wondering this, and wondering that.  Ugh!  It's not a fun process.  It's exactly like a job interview, except that there's only a small handful of spots, and 200 people all interviewing for the same job as you.  I love the Nook though.  It's my second home, and a lot of my friends hang out there, so how could I not give it a shot.  I'll update the post as soon as I know the results.  Thanks for all your well wishes, and encouraging words along the way friends, it sure makes me feel loved.

Have a wonderful Thursday,

♥ S.
