Tough Love

'Real friends are ones that know the worst about you and still like you'

It's time to face the music, my scraproom and Houston's had both reached a point a few weeks ago where neither one of us could really scrap in the area. So we made a plan to help each other plow through the excess.

I've long been a proponent of the the Love and Logic model in working with kids, in training we say it works on kids, dogs, dolphins even husbands, but could it work on friends with out of control scraprooms?

An ounce of empathy...the Scenic Route and Basic Grey is non negotiable and neither one of us would have to part with any products from these companies

Take control with small can keep two stamps for everyone you put in the sale bin

One sentence intervention: No you don't need two packs of the same paper

and it worked. Both rooms are on their way back to being the clean, organized and inspiring space we want them to be.

I'm thankful for such a good friend.

I'm thankful for a organized space that allowed me to make a this layout in under 45 minutes.
