Last post for a while....
Sorry I've been away for so long! Life has pretty much put my plans into a blender, pureed them, and spit them back out into my lap. I'm on a whole new track and I'm loving the fresh outlook it's brought to my life :D Things are finally starting to make sense in my life and that is so exciting!
First off, I'll be going back to teaching in the fall! I'll be teaching a fourth grade gifted class. There are no words to describe how excited I am. Since I found out, I've been planning curriculum, reading great children's literature and stocking up on the neccessities - classroom stuff, work clothes, work shoes...ya know, any reason to go shopping :P Plus, it feels great to know I'll be making my own money and no longer need to "ask" for things. Although dh is wonderful at providing Sarah and I with everything we need, it'll be great to know I can get it myself from now on and contribute to the house bills, as well.
Secondly, I will no longer be scrapping as a "job" any longer. It was a hard decision to make but I'm happy with it. I know there will be limited time to spend with my family once I start teaching. I want to be able to spend every moment with them and scrap when I want to, instead of scrapping for a deadline. I'll miss the push to create and the wonderful teammates I've had on various teams, but I know this is the best decision for us. Plus, I think I'll finally be able to enjoy scrapping again. The pressure to create awesome stuff every month was kind of getting to me. Sometimes, I want to just throw a layout together and not worry about balance and proportion and colors. So, this decision will provide me with the opportunity to get back to the "fun" of scrapping...when I have the time, that is!
Here is my last project I created with the Label Tulip Project kit, which I created!! And, it's sold out!! WOO HOO!! I also helped create the main kit this month, which also sold out. Nothing like going out with a bang! It just warms my heart to know that so many people are enjoying and scrapping with the products that I hand picked simply because I loved them so much! If you picked up either of the kits, have a blast with them!
