It's been several weeks since I've posted, which seems to warrant a little bit of catching up. In list form, no less :
Falling behind / with all things social. I don't know why - it wasn't planned at all. I haven't been blogging and I haven't been reading my favorite blogs. My Feedly is overflowing but I'm hopeful I'll get through it some day soon. My computer and my brain enjoyed the unintentional break.
Looking ahead / I've decided not to continue on as a Studio Calico Creative Team Member next year. There was some confusion about my name being listed on the new team announcement in November, but that was a mistake. The last two years were awesome and Studio Calico is no doubt the best kit club around. I had so many fabulous opportunities and the ladies on that team are some of my very favorite people in the world. Personally, I feel like it's time for me to move on and pursue other things. I'm really excited about it.
Looking ahead / my Christmas shopping is complete and once Morgan gets off the bus this afternoon, we'll have two whole weeks to enjoy as a family. I'm especially happy we won't be doing much traveling either.
Falling behind / on my December album. On Tuesday morning I was 10 days behind, but because I'm keeping my album so simple, I was caught up again within a few hours. I've shared my first 6 days in the 25 Days classroom and at this point, I'll probably plan the album in full once it's complete. Maybe even with a video flip-through.
Looking ahead / to Ali Edwards Story Kits. I signed up not long after they were available for preorder and I'm so so excited about getting back into making layouts again. About using what I have and what I love and making stuff for me. While I wait for my first kit, I've been organizing a binder to keep all of my story sparks, lesson PDF's and layout sketches. Has anyone else subscribed?
Looking ahead / to 2015. New goals, a new planner, a new Project Life album. Taking classes (online + in-person) and teaching classes. Figuring out what to share and how much to share. I got these Powersheets in the mail yesterday and I think Lara's new book would be a perfect companion. Planning is my favorite and I love a fresh start.
Have a great weekend!
