I bet that felt good to put down on paper! Sadly I don't think you are alone in the way you feel within this industry. It's can be very cruel at times and I know I've felt like I've been chewed up and spat out several times over. Very proud of you for making the stand against what you thought wasn't the best thing for your own self-worth... which in the end is the most important thing we have.


This spread is amazing Laura!! Good for you for getting your feelings down on paper! Sometimes those are the most satisfying pages to do! And good for you for doing what you needed to take care of yourself!


Amazing!! I love everything about this!

This is an amazing page and perhaps one of the most important pages for your books! I think the words that you spoke were true feelings. I think as scrappers we do alot of happy moments, which is also important and awesome but I your girls will remember and learn from your words and hopefully they will never let things go long enough that they feel "walked upon". I hope you will remember your own words also and KNOW you are strong enough to speak your mind when you need to :D don't wait until you feel worthless because you definitely are AWESOME :D


I know this has been tough (that kit was so fitting) but I also know you made the right decision for you even though it was tough. You are very talented and I know so many people would agree with me there. You are amazing in my book. The way you can do daycare, keep your house spotless, attend to whatever your family needs and yet still have the time and energy to make beautiful layouts and keep up on blogging too. You ROCK my crazy talented super hero BFF!


I'm so sorry this happened to you! You are AWESOME and should never let anyone make you feel otherwise. I'm so glad you were able to get out of the situation but so sorry that you were hurt and made to feel less than the valuable, talented and amazing person and scrapbooker that you are!

You are awesome and have always been a huge inspiration to me. I'm sorry to hear that you weren't treated with the respect you deserve, but I'm so glad to hear that you have taken care of yourself by moving on (and getting your feelings down on paper!!!) Sometimes just venting can help us recover, but when things are truly toxic to our self-worth, it is definitely time to pull the plug.

I know you have so much to give and that you continue to share and inspire and I just want you to know how much I truly appreciate that!

I'm thankful for you!

You have been my internet friend for years and I do so admire your work. Your style is more like mine than anyone I have ever encountered. I love your work, your honesty and your integrity. I am sorry you were hurt. I am so glad that you made a change and you will move forward on to something else better and more affirming. I just know it! Thanks for being my "friend inside the computer" as my family calls my blog friends. I have had to stop reading blogs mostly. I went to work full-time as a Realtor, but I still read yours often.

I'm just a fan. I admire your work and can't wait to follow you and see what you do next. Some one out there suffered a great loss when you chose a new path. Kudos.
