i like this woman

i've rewritten this post a few times, this is not coming out right!! all i want to say is that melody ross' blog came as a surprise to me. i was unsure that i wanted to read another blog about another perfect woman who can be so creative, succesful, beautiful, a wonderful mother, juggle it all and have time to spare. (and, of course, SCRAPBOOK IT ALL in a wonderfully organized studio with tons of filled albums) there are plenty of blogs out there like that that i have started to avoid, simply because i have a tendency to compare myself (bad, i know... shouldn't i be past that at this stage in my life??)

but i'm glad i did. she's got a lot on her plate, and a lot of struggles for her family right now. if you haven't checked it out, do so at www.melodyross.typepad.com i leave there inspired to do better and feeling uplifted. it also reminds me never to judge a book by it's cover... things are not always as they seem. i never comment there (well, maybe once), but i do stalk it.

have you ever read it? do you like it?

You are so right about melody ross! She is so incredibly real,down to earth, and a beautiful person. It is so hard to believe that someone that is so beautiful on the outside can be equally pretty on the inside. This women is this way inside and out. I love reading her blog. She doesn't act like everything is perfect in her life. One thing I have been frusterated with in this industry is, some of the scrapbooking women that have a major product line sometimes seem so snobby. I have has some very frusterating personal experiences with some of these women. I know that sounds harsh,and it is probably me just not understanding certain people. I am rambeling, my point is that Melody has a huge heart, and she is so lovely! I would encourage everyone to read her blog,you will truly be uplifted and inspired!
