Tired of the drama, try this Scraps Of Kindness
I don’t have an opinion about the recent drama at a forum that I frequent often, but I do have an opinion about treating people the way you want to be treated. The thread tonight about Jennifer Shabro who I happen not to know from Adam, made me think about where this hobby I love so much is headed. I read the post that personally attacked another human being and then suggested she isn’t “worthy” of receivng acknowledgement of her work because of mistakes she made in the past. The post ranged from she should be paying back more then she is (the courts I’m sure set her dollar amount, so now as scrapbookers we are wiser then judges), she is buying too much, she isn’t buying anything she is stealing it all, she has no remorse and to be honest instead of commenting I decided to “ponder” this thread. I decided not to police the thread, everyone there is an adult and they are entitled to their opinion. Between this thread, past threads about Kristina Contes (who I don’t know), BPS, and numerous other I am questioning if I shouldn’t just quit visiting message boards. I have made the most wonderful friends thru scrapbooking but am disappointed in cyber world almost daily by the mean and hateful comments made. I’m sad, just plain down right sad. If I was judged and not forgiven for my mistakes I would be a pretty lonely person. When Kristina defended herself and basically said she could care less what anyone thought she was blasted and now Jennifer makes a comment about her faith and she was blasted, so I guess with some folks you just can’t win. I am not saying that in all three of these situations people are blameless, there were plenty of mistakes made and in one case the law was broken but who hasn’t screwed up, who has screwed up BIG? I have and I’m glad I haven’t had to give up living life!

Kristina Contes (this blog is not judging KC just gives a lot of good information)
