Almost Like A Real Scrapbooker!

3:51 PM

Yesterday, I had an amazing experience - I was a guest panelist on the Paperclipping Roundtable! For those of you outside the scrappy universe, the Roundtable is a podcast recorded by Noell & Izzy Hyman, who usually interview the giants in the scrapbooking industry on the show. But, for this week's episode, they decided to have everyday scrappers on to discuss scrapping our significant others. In particular, they wanted participants who had taken Noell's Romantic Scrapbooking course & who had completed several of the challenges outlined in the course. Well, I met these requirements, so I threw my hat into the ring as a possible participant.

Last Thursday, I got the e-mail I had been waiting for (more accurately, I had been refreshing my e-mail on my phone every 15 minutes), and I had been selected. OH HAPPY JOYOUS DAY!!!! See, I really love this podcast! I stalk iTunes every Tuesday waiting for new episodes and when there are none, I go back and listen to the library of past episodes. The guests they have on are scrapbookers whose influence can be seen on just about every layout I complete. And I was going to join their ranks!!!

Yesterday was the big recording day. I was FREAKING out - so so so nervous! Who am I to offer advice on scrapbooking??? What expertise do I have??? What if I say something stupid, or can't think of anything to say? What if I belch, or cuss, or do something else obnoxious?

Noell & Izzy were so fantastic - they immediately put me at ease! And the other guests they had on - Davida & Jen - were awesome! I got along with everyone so well! By the end of the recording, it felt like we had known each other for years!!! The time went by so fast & I was so sad when the recording ended!

I've listened to the broadcast several times now. And amazingly, I somewhat sound like I know what I'm talking about!!! I made Rob listen to it in the car last night while we were running errands, and he kept giving me that "oh, aren't you cute" look he often gives me when he's amused.

So, if you haven't listened to the podcast, go check it out! I'm the one with the weird, obnoxious laugh! :)
