Many GOOD things have happened over the course of a few hours...

Listening to more and more encouraging Japanese news (I have a Japanese channel on my cable - TV Japan) about people finally getting help and many rebuilding...keep strong, Japan! xo

On today's Webster's Pages' blog, they did a post about my favorite Japanese scrapbook business - Memory Palette. They also own the magazine that I write for "Love My Memories." So thank you to Webster's Page for the SHOUT OUT - WOOOHOOOO!!
