Hi there!

Curious . . . how do you feel about lobster? Does it depend on where the lobster comes from?

A Little Story
Here in Indiana, the lobster is—EW. I really do WANT to like it though. So during a recent visit to Bar Harbor, Maine, I thought to myself, “This lobster will surely be amazing!” After all—location, location, location.

So, after asking the locals what to try and where to get it, I headed off to a hole-in-the-wall restaurant to try their “lobster roll.” The price tag of $37 indicated that it was going to be the best thing to ever hit my taste buds.



Wrong. It was one of those “chew slowly, contemplate gagging” kind of deals. Turns out, lobster is not going to be my thing, no matter where it comes from.

Scrap About Things You Do NOT Love
When was the last time you created a scrapbook page about something you disliked? We do tend to focus on the positive, don’t we? But the YUCKS in life say just as much about you and your story as the YESES!

This week on the blog, Carla Shute will show you a fun way to celebrate your stories. I’ve used it in my photo cluster above. You’re going to have fun. I’ll see you in the galleries.

Love and creative success,

Jen White
