Hey all =) I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas & New Year. I am trying to get back into things here, just a few more days of house guests then it will be back to business as usual!
So it is time for a new sketch challenge at Once Upon A Sketch. This month's theme is all about the start of something new. Here is my take...
I have some hidden journalling under the shipping tag all about my hopes for 2013. A year of endings for us. We are moving house shortly, I am hoping hubbies job situation changes soon, it is my son's my final year of high school before college, my step daughters final year of uni before her post grad work. As for me I am still plodding along doing what I do.
It's funny, whenever hubbie comes into my scrap room and asks what I am doing, my response 90% of the time is, 'I'm waiting for paint to dry'. And it has occurred to me that this really could be a great metaphor for where I am at ( and probably have been for a while) in life. I seem to be always waiting for something to happen before I move forward. And for 2013 I want to change that and stop waiting. Nothing big, just small things.
I want to devote more time to my store. I have my first ever teaching opportunity in March, which is something I never saw myself doing but am now open to the opportunity that maybe this could be something I could do on a more regular basis? And I thought maybe this year I might actually apply for scrap related stuff. You know I have ever only applied for one DT position before which was Bird Is The Word. I always figured if someone wanted me, they would find me and maybe also a fear of rejection stopped me. But this year, I want to change that =)
So anyway, that's my dribble =) Oh and speaking of DT positions. Paper Stories is having their first ever DT call for our monthly challenges, you can see all the details on our blog here. I have had an amazing response so far and it is really going to be a tough choice. I would LOVE to see more Aussie girls apply though ;)
I can't wait to see some more amazing entries at OUAS this month. Sadly this will be my last month at Once Upon A Sketch. I have been with Once Upon A Sketch since 2011 and it is very very close to my heart. It was the first ever challenge site I entered and the lovely comments and support from the girls there really made me want to continue on my scrapping journey. Nadia invited me to the team when I was still very much a newbie and I will be forever grateful for the lessons learnt, growth, support and friendship that I discovered there =)
