A new year, a new post (finally!)

Has it really been almost 4 months since I last updated my blog?? I guess life has just gotten in the way lately. My apologies to the 2 people that read this blog. ;) LOL

We've been so busy around here. I was working during the holidays and of course the holidays itself is so busy. We're working hard on remodeling and organizing our house. So much work to be done! We're almost done with B's room. I'm almost done with the paint and we've ordered carpet to be installed. Then to get started on the 2nd bath/laundry room.

Lately I've felt a little burnt out on scrapbooking and playing the whole publication game. I haven't been doing much with that lately as I'm trying to get my priorities in order. I'm certainly not going to give up on scrapping completely, just slow down a little maybe? It's something I need to make fun again and not feel so much like work. On that note, I'm starting a new project called Deck of Me. It's a fun challenge I found on this blog. It is taking a deck of cards and altering one a week for 52 weeks and turning into a mini-album/journal. Currently we're on week 4 and I haven't actually started but I hope to catch up soon. At least I found a deck of cards to use! LOL

I'm also doing fun stuff for Frances Meyer with new papers they're developing and I'm still on the DT at The School of Scrap. Classes are starting back up in February and I'm excited to be the new Advanced Math teacher.

I've felt such a need lately to pick up my brushes and pencils and renew my passion in creating artwork. It's been so long since I've painted or drawn anything. Again, life. I've drawn a few pictures recently. Here's one I've titled Pondering.



I've been hanging out at a place called Wet Canvas lately. It's a wonderful artist's community with so much support, information, and resources. I'm taking some refersher courses there, just for fun. I hope to share more soon.
