When I find a line of papers that I love and that show themselves to be very versitile, I love to tell everyone. I have been and still remain a devoted fan of Basic Grey, Daisy D, Kaleidoscrope, and Wild Asparagus. I have added still another line of fine and wonderous papers to my list: Cosmo Cricket! (www.cosmocricket.com).
Anyone who knows me knows that I am the least likey person to be a "celeb stalker" but I did feel moved to write Julie Comstock, the principal of the company to thank her for her product lines. I wrote a rather tongue-in-cheek e-mail telling her that since getting a few of her lines I had not stopped scrapping with them (truth here: I must have done 5 layouts using these in the past couple of days), that my husband was going unfed, my children shoeless and my hair uncombed. I told her I needed a 12 Step Program. She e-mailed me back with this very funny !2 Step Program which I am reprinting with her kind permission.
12 Step Program from Cosmo Cricket
Step One: Admint you have a problem. (Congratulations, you seem to have taken this step on our own)
Step Two: Continue scrapbooking with your current supply of Cosmo Cricket products. If you don't you will feel guilty for having spent money on them.
Step Three: Put the pizza man on speed dial.
Step Four: Get your children flip flops.
Step Five: Have husband watch the movie, "Mr. Mom".
Step Six: Create a support group for women like you so that you can all share your problems(and products)with each other.
Step Seven: Let hair sit in a good conditioner until you can get a comb through it.
Step Eight: Have hair cut short into a hassle-free, 5 minute style.
Step Nine: Don't stop scrapping to go to sleep. This will allow more time to use up your current supply, and you won't mess up your 5 minute style.
Step Ten: Turn on ESPN, your husband will forget about dinner.
Step Eleven: Focus on the positive. You are creating something wonderful for the people you love and neglect.
Step Twelve: Feed the addiction. Buy Comso Cricket products whenever you can, otherwise withdrawal symptoms will set in.
What a funny lady. P.S. Julie, I love your name too!
