Thank You Sahrie!

Good-byes are never easy...and they're even harder when you know that it's the right thing to do. So if you think you know what this is all about, you're probably right. My 2-year DT stint with Scrapbukan has come to a close.

The last 2 years of my scrapbooking life have been such a blessing...and all because Sahrie thought that I was worthy. I will always be grateful to Sahrie for choosing me and believing in me, way before I won anything or received any kind of recognition for my work.

Because of her, I learned to believe in myself and trust my instincts, to be brave and always to be myself, and when needed, even fight for what I believe is right.

But the best thing that I learned from Sahrie, or Charlie as we fondly tease her (as in Charlie's Angels), is how to be generous -- to always share your blessings. Sahrie has been nothing but generous, not only to us as her DT, but to Scrappin' Moms and the whole local scrapbooking industry. She will give and give and give some more, for as long and as much as she can.

It is a pity that she doesn't live in Manila, for the rest of the local scrapbookers to really get to know her... her kind heart, her humble spirit, her never-ending generosity. Who else (aside from Pia and Iris) can say that her boss sends her flowers for a job well done?

I don't know how Sahrie chose her DT -- some say its because of our talent, but others will argue that, really, it's our visual appeal that got us the job...haha! But whatever it is that got us to where we are now, we can never thank Sahrie enough for bringing us together...Sahrie's Angels, Tres Marias, the Dream Team, etc, etc. ---- Ria, Pia and Iris.

Being part of the growth of Scrapbukan has always been a source of pride for us. But 2 years is a long time, even for our small local scrapbooking industry...and change is needed for further growth. So as our contracts end, we bid farewell to the DT job, but not to the friendships that we have formed...and never to Scrapbukan and Sahrie, for they will always be part of us.
