Trendy Tuesday 1.9.07

Tuesdays are dedicated to the wall flowers. We know you're out there (lots and lots and lots of you). But, we also know that while the quotes provide a lot of inspiration what you have to say might just be too personal to put out there in cyberspace. So, Trendy Tuesdays were born. It's our hope that Tuesday prompts still lead to thoughtfulness but a more playful kind of thoughtful.


With no further ado, Trendy Tuesday # 1:

Hi! Well, it's way past Tuesday but I hope it's alright to still share. :) I found your blog through Shimelle's Christmas journal class, and I think this is such a fab idea. I have posted my results for Trendy Tuesday (so fun to complete!) here:

I just realized that I never posted here that I posted this on my blog earlier today.

I'm having trouble getting the layout posted, (heck, the blog isn't even all put together yet!)so I just put up the list. I hope that will count.

Even if it doesn't count,no worries. I love all the work you have put into this project. It is amazing. I hope to get myself out of the "wall flower" mode. Thanks bunches!

Oops, this won't let me sign up under my blog location. It can be found here Big Blue Frog.
