My Poor Neglected Blog

Why hello there!!! Holy moley - I did not intend to take a two month blogging break. I have been crazy busy since the first of the year though so blogging took a back seat to my increased activity on Facebook, Instagram and Flickr.

In January I took a daily class from my friend Lain Ehman about Crafting Your Biz.....I've been contemplating starting an online scrapbooking/crafting company. Crafting is such a huge part of who I am that it's time that I start nurturing it more, sharing it, and hopefully making a little bit of money from it too. It's still in it's infant stage so I have a ways to go still before it becomes reality.

Then in February I signed up for the LOAD challenge, again with the fabulous Lain Ehman. LOAD = Layout a Day challenge and it was FABULOUS!! We had daily prompts, discussions and so much fun posting our layouts in our Flickr group. We ended with just over 6000 layouts posted for the month - I think there were about 450 participants. I personally completed 38 layouts which is more than I've done in the last 3 years COMBINED.

The final layout!!

This is my final layout - highlighting what I accomplished this month.This was such a kick in the pants for me - I learned, stretched myself creatively and had an amazing time. The theme for this LOAD was Scrap Happier and I really really did. I will cherish these pages I created. Visit my Flickr page to see the rest of the layouts I completed this month.
