Does Anyone Still Read?

I've been quiet recently, mostly because I've been teaching, but also because I've been reading and thinking. I spent the last week leading a group of Simple Scrapper members through the beta edition of Refresh, my new seasonal workshop that resets...

    Around here January was a very creative month filled with INSPIRATION – participated in Start Fresh; created 20 layouts, 2 canvases, 2 cards, and a tutorial video; taught a Valentine’s Day card class at our (not-so) LSS; worked on my digital workflow, organized memorabilia and scrapbook supplies, etc etc etc. 🙂

      Maybe that inspiration carry you into February and beyond Melissa! So awesome that you had a productive month.

    My January has not been as creative as I had planned, but I am very pleased w/what I have accomplished. When the plan I for my Rt 66 album did not work out, I was able to do research & have another plan to try in Feb. Usually when I get stuck on a project, I have a hard time switching gears. But because of Fresh Start I had an agenda & was able to jump right in & still be productive. I put Thanksgiving & Christmas in pocket pages instead. Journaling for Thanksgiving done & Christmas is all most complete. Also have Feb planning pages ready to go in my planner. Uploading 334 photos to be printed while typing this. I AM pleased w/my month.

      Pleased is the perfect place to be. You’ve made course corrections along the way, which will take you so far. It’s all about keeping things fun and letting go of the frustrations.

    I think I’ve done pretty well, I visited my son for a week, got a new table/storage unit installed in my scrap room, and am half way through my Dec. Daily album! I opted to do the journalling and photo taking daily, and that’s it, during December so that I could enjoy the holidays as much as possible while they were happening. Now, I am working on the album. I have already had several requests to look through it when it’s done, by people looking over my shoulder at crops; so I think I must be doing something right!
