too busy to be famous.

Again, I have decided not to enter a contest that I would surely win if I just took the time to prepare an entry.

Okay, first. I am kidding about saying I would surely win. But surely you already knew that. Surely.

Second, this isn't the first time that I have realized that if I am to busy to prepare even a quick entry, I am too busy to be "famous" if I won. So MMM will have one less stellar entry in their stack of wannabe Masters.

I am conflicted about this because it's more fun on call day if I have entered...except for the time I entered the Mara-mi album contest and they had NINE COUNT 'EM NINE prizes and I still got ignored....that wasn't very exciting...but I digress. (Isn't this whole thing basically a big digression?)

I do plan to enter the Chatterbox contest. I love their papers and I love to do meaningful writing. (Yes, I realize that my desire to write meaningfully isn't just super obvious today, but trust me on this one.)

{an aside} It seems I am feeling quite parenthetical today.

So, anyway, no MMM for me.

Today's verse reminds me of that very beautiful song, "Held." It is one that was sent to me this week as an encouragement. Thanks, Holly!!

So don't worry, beacuse I am with you. Don't be afraid, because I am
your God. I will make you strong and will help you; I will support you
with my right hand that saves you.

Isaiah 41:10

You should keep that tag line, when you don't do something, you can always reply with "I'm too busy to be famous" Funny

I'm sure you would win. Surely.
I understand about not having enough time to whip together an entry, though. Sometimes I wish I could just scrap all the time.. and then I realize, if I scrapped all the time, I wouldn't have anything to scrap and then I'd have all that time and nothing to do. Sheesh. Life was so much simpler before I became addicted to pretty paper ;)

I had to come by and say Hi after seein your post on my blog! Thanks for breaking it in! :)

I'm so with you on the 'not enough time' thing. I'd love to win a contest, but there's no way I could live with deadlines, pressure, etc. that would come afterwards.

Some day our kids will be older and then we'll *rock* the scrap world! ;)
