LIFE MUSES BY RO and OTHER WRITINGS
A Designer's Dog's Life: "Duffy" Veale

My human is sitting over there playing with her mouse and her Welcome* tablet instead of with me. If you ask me, that tablet is not very welcome in my house when she handles it more than me and lets it sit on her lap for hours at a time. To add insult to injury, she told me I needed to earn my keep and write a Designer's Dog's Life article so she could design instead of doing her own writing assignment.

Life Muses by Ro: A Seal's Bookcase

"Get rid of that bookcase," the seal barked to his wife. "It's junking up my man's room and I need more room for a pool table."

Life Muses by Ro: The Letter "I"

Ro shares another one of her doodle drawings - check it out!

Best of the Scrap Girls Blog: The Past Ten Years

Note from Ro: I found this touching muse by Trish Yochum in the Scrap Girls Digital Scrapbooking Adventures blog. I just had to show it to you. There's a lot to relate to!

Life Muses by Ro: White Balance Simplified

I have to confess that the settings on my camera often intimidate me. After struggling to learn them in a half-hearted manner, I decided to stop fiddling with all of the settings at once. Instead, I have practiced changing one setting at a time until I "get it". Once I feel comfortable with it, I move along to something else.

Customer Muse by Emily C.

Wednesday morning, I was in a bad mood. You see, I had just gotten the news that I did not receive a position that I had interviewed for the day before. After I listened to the "Thank you for your time, best of luck in the future" voicemail, I fell into a depressed state and proceeded to throw myself a pity party. Was I too young? Did I say something wrong? Did they just not like me? All throughout the morning, I contemplated on why, exactly, they didn't hire me.

div

Muse: To be absorbed in one's thoughts; engage in meditation. Not intended to solve the world's problems, another person's problems, or to cover topics completely. One does not have to agree with musings to enjoy them, just as one does not have to be the same as someone else to appreciate who they are.

Would you like to earn a $20 Gift Certificate? Send your own muse to [email protected]. If it is selected for publication in the Scrap Girls newsletter, you'll get to have fun shopping!
