too funny...I just looked up the meaning of my name on the site Cassondra linked us to.

The meaning of Mary is Rebelliousness...every one who knows me will agree that is totally appropriate!

Hiii Friends...

Count me in Cassondra What an AWESOME idea!!!! This is the first Book of Me that I will be doing so I might have tons of questions...lol.

I will make a commitment to do 4 layouts one for each month of the year that we have left.

I am going to look at the link you posted now and find out the meaning of my name!

This is so AWESOME to see so many interested.

Snowflake- so glad you are joining-

I've seen several comments about this being therapy. Well- usually as women- we do NOT spend enough time on just us. We are always fussing and worrying about everyone else. Without reflection and self expression on a personal level- we get depressed & feel trodden on and tired. I am so excited to see the excitement about this.

Cassondra- that is a great starting point- are names. That takes us to the beginning for those of us who weren't sure where to jump in. I was having so many ideas rattle around in my brain that I didn't know where to land. This is great. Now to research...

Thank you Megan Ann...Life is all about finding your Happy Place. If you can find happiness even in the smallest things then you can find peace in your times of trial.

Mary I am afraid to look mine up....LOL....it will probably say....sassy one who talks when she should listen!!!

Char....they always say when you don't know where to start....go back to the begining....Our names are the first thing we are given once we get here that are ours to keep....seemed like a perfect place to start!!!

Bon were you a yogi in another life????.....your words are always so beautiful and heartfelt....way better than a fortune cookie even!!! I always try to find the right words but end up sounding like a stale greeting card that came from the dollar rack

Guess thats why you are our cheerleader!!!

I'm going to set a goal for 8 pages. I've decided to do an 8x8. I want to give this to my daughter when she gets older. I was 35 when I got pregnant with her so our environments are so different from each others. Like tonight, I had to downgrade my cable package and she's bumming. And we actually sat down together and watched some news, just like when I grew up!!

Oh, I already knew what my name means... Hebrew Princess!!!

This is the first time i'm doing one too. Funnily enough I started a few months ago around the same time I gave up paper scrapping and any ambitions of being on a DT. But my whole philosophy around scrapping changed as well. I want my future grandchildren to know who we are not just what we did.

Yogi??? I certainly don't feel like your words come from the dollar rack. Besides actions speak louder than words...look at all the people you have brought to the BOM Paper Sista!!!

Yogi is someone who has studied and mastered the ways of Buddah.....they are always very focused and have an amazing zen like calmness and wisdom about them....;) They are people you meet and just feel good being around them because they are so grounded and loving.....like you!!!

I'd like to do this, but I already have many commitments that are due before the end of this year, so my goal will be very low. I can probably commit to two layouts.
