Preparing to pack up my girl for her sophomore year of college. (Photo above taken in 2008.) She’s transferring to a small private college about an hour out of town. We’re so excited to see how the year unfolds for her. Last year’s experience with big university life wasn’t a good fit for her and if there was ever a time to change your mind, now is it. We drop her off on Saturday.
Wondering if it’s going to be a bit easier this year on yours truly considering she’s much closer to home and also it’s so clear that she’s ready to get out and try this again.
Wrapping up production on the fall issue of Scrapbook & Cards Today plus a new special issue, Creative Cards Vol. 1. I am not a huge card maker, but I have to admit this issue makes me want to try a few more things than my usual slap some type on a piece of cardstock, fold it and call it a day. Here’s a little promo piece that gives you an idea of what’s inside. I designed a set of twenty 3 x 4 card sentiments that come in printable PDFs (multiple color options) plus a companion digital stamp set, too. You can use them either in your own card making, or for your pocket page albums, too! That and you get over 60 cut files. It’s a lot packed into one issue that the team is really proud of. It’s at the printer as I type! You can preorder it here.
Hating the chattering of squirrels outside my window. I realize that’s a little harsh, to hate on squirrels, but… damn.
Loving my free trial to Sirius XM radio for my car. 1st Wave just makes me smile. I will always be an 80s girl at heart.
Working on the final touches to an all new 30 Days of Thankful class and digital package for 2015. This will be one of the first new classes on my new class site and my goal is to launch in just a few weeks. The class and project is less geared towards the idea of having to do this in November (or October, if you’re Canadian!) in relation to Thanksgiving. I made my album in July and it was exactly what I needed to stay focused and grounded during a somewhat unpredictable summer. Details are coming soon!
