    Thank you SO VERY MUCH for an incredible, inspiring, and unforgettable weekend!!! You rock! I know I speak for everyone at the Scrap Etc. Event when I say that we are so appreciative to you, Emily, and the other girls for coming!!
    Now, I don’t want to “burst your bubble,” but Alabama is 2 hours ahead, so you’re still on Central Standard Time…your actually going to bed at midnight! Yeah, I probably shouldn’t have told you that!
    Thanks again! šŸ™‚

    Heidi, You were so inspiring. I got exactly what I needed form your classes.. The frame kit is so adorable, I am so proud of it. The glimpse into you r*SHE* class was such a blessing to hear. Will be working on my own cards asap.

    Mornings stink! Especially cold, wet, rainy ones (like it is here in massachusetts as I type!). Good luck with the morning person thing though. If you last the week, you should treat yourself to something good – you know like sleeping in for a day! Is your heidiswapp website down forever? Each time I check it, I get redirected, and I want to see what new products I should be badgering my LSS to order! Your stuff is just too much fun!

    Heidi,
    Good luck to you with your morning routine. I love the mornings. I often don’t get much done, but I do enjoy drinking my coffee, reading e-mail and blogs while sitting in my garden room. I don’t have to leave for work until 8:30 and I’m usually up before 6:00. This time of year is especially nice since bird migration is just starting. I love to hear the birds in the morning.
    Let us know how it goes.

    I have been reading how fabulous your classes were this weekend. I SERIOUSLY NEED TO TAKE YOUR CLASSES! I am so inspired by your work and your products. I can only imagine how amazing a weekend of being infused by your creativity and She philosphy would be.
    Hope your morning person transformation is successful. I feel like I don’t waste a day if I get up early. Don’t get me wrong, I have some great creativity time late at night too.
    Keep the great inspiration coming!

    Thank YOU for such an amazing experience… your classes were both truly fabulous. Such an inspiration, so REAL. Thank you, thank you, thank you – for getting me pumped about scrapping again, and for helping us see the SHEs in all of us… šŸ™‚

    Thank you, thank you, thank you! I was a pleasure to meet and work with both you and Emily! You have touched my heart that I thought was locked away forever. You know how when you meet someone you want to say something but don’t know how or don’t want to come across as sounding like a groupie or stupid. I just wanted to say YOU have inspired me to play and to tell my story because I am important also. Thank you for that.
    Now, why couldn’t I be that adorable being pregnant? You are too cute!

    Good luck getting stuff done early. You’re a better person than I-I can barely get up when I have to, let alone earlier.

    Heidi:
    Morning people rock! You will learn to love it…or good luck, anyway!
    Thanks for such a wonderful weekend. You were astoundingly generous, both in giving us freebies, and, more importantly, in giving us yourSELF. I was so touched by the poignancy of your mom’s comment on the “believe” layout…I totally relate!
    Anyway, you opened a door for me, and stretched me, and I will always be grateful!!!

    THAN YOU to you and Emily. I truly enjoyed your classes. Not only for the product, but how you made me more inspired to scrap. I started giving all my scrapbook items away. I just did not want to do it anymore. I guess the pressure of not being published to not feeling like I scrapped good enough. But after your “SHE” class, I was a changed woman. I thought it was just a logo, like the bullseye at target. But to now know what it means and why it means what it does. I now have the inspiration to stop giving my stuff away and truly work on a “HE” album. I only have a boy. But it still works the same. You and Em are a super team and truly show us girl power. Please keep the inspiration coming. You both were dolls. With all those who wanted just a smile, or a touch from either of you, had to wipe you out. I have to say, I was lucky enough to be touched by you.

    I usually HATE it when people make me cry in public — but in your “She” class, I was thrilled to be moved the way I was. Amazing — simply amazing.
    Send me some good stores to check out in the Scottsdale area when you get a chance! (I’m the one who will be out there for Art Unraveled in Aug).
    Oh, just a note — Yamada is pronounced ya-MA-duh. But I’m sure he won’t mind if you say it any way you want. šŸ˜‰

    Try going easy on flying while pregnant. It is not exactly good for the baby or yourself if you fly too much.

    Well, I absolutely MUST take this class when you do it in Phoenix. I recently tried to sign up for the classes you are teaching at S.E., but by the time I found out about them, they were long overbooked, but now that I’ve discovered your blog, I’ll be on top of things, as long as you mention it when it gets scheduled. Will you be teaching the same classes you taught in Alabama here any time soon? As far as becoming a morning person, I’ve tried and failed a number of times, but I know what you mean about our spring mornings. They are glorious and I feel so guilty sleeping through them. Eight used to be my wake up time and I have successfully moved it an hour earlier, but that’s about all I’ve been able to manage. An article on the subject that I recently read says to decide on your wake-up time and get up then. Then go to bed when you feel tired, not at a specific time. For some reason, this is supposed to work better than saying, “I’m getting up at 5:00 a.m. tomorrow, so I need to go to bed by 9:30” or something like that. Anyway, for whatever that’s worth. Good luck!

    What a fabulous weekend, your class was great and I really enjoyed it. Thank you for travelling so far, I already have the frame set up on my office desk, and I have had fellow employees comenting on how beautiful it is. Thank You again!

    Hmm, I kind of felt like a groupie when I signed up for the Scrap Etc. event because you mentioned it on your blog, and I wasn’t able to get into the class at my local scrapbooking store. Now, I know I’m a groupie because your classes were absolutely amazing and totally worth the money, effort, and distance traveled! I’m always astounded at your energy level! Good luck with that morning thing.

    I totally understand your struggle w/ being a morning person. I live on the east coast, but tell people I operate on Mountain time! I am a morning person … just living in the wrong time zone! LOL!

    Heidi – Thanks for a great weekend. You are so inspiring. I just got home from Books-a-million with the Life Makeover book. Can’t wait to start the journey.
    Cheers, Pattie

    Congratulations! I get up at 5 every morning but have to go to work. so make the bed shower blow dry the hair (curly make it straight) wish I could do all the stuff you did in a week! LOL! No time at all. I used to be cheery in the morning now as I get older am too tired. So my friends tell me that being a morning person also means youneed to have “personality”…So does SHE?
