Welcome to Freebie Friday! Yesterday we bid a fond farewell to our six Paper Crafts Go-to Gals, who were in town for our annual editorial board meeting.
In between all the hugging, laughing and consumption of candy, soda and (really good) food, we reviewed last year’s magazines, brainstormed ideas for our 2012 issues and went on some fun field trips. (There was also one very revealing game of “Two Truths & A Lie”, but that’s a blog post for another day.)
My favorite part of ed board is just sitting around and chatting with these inspiring ladies. You forget that in addition to “Paper Crafts Go-to Gal”, they also hold the titles of Daughter, Mother, Sister and Friend. Like most women, they wear a lot of different hats and each one is significant in its own right.
But since Mother’s Day is this weekend, let’s pay tribute to the all-important title that’s short on letters, but big on heart.
Here’s to you, Mom (courtesy of our May/June 2011 issue)!
