Hey guys :)
So here today to catch up on sharing some scrappy work but also with a little news.
As of the end of April I will be retiring from all of my current design team positions.
I feel sooooo blessed and honored to have been invited to work with the companies, magazines and sites I have for the past 3 years. I feel like they have helped me grow as a scrapper, pushed my boundaries creatively and given me the confidence to believe in myself a little more than I did.
But saying that, I have reached a point where my entire week is planned around DT deadlines. I have found myself almost 10kg's heavier than before I started DT work, from getting up at the crack of dawn to clean my house spotless and ready to start my day to still being in my pj's at 2pm with nothing done and really just feeling like all the fun is seeping out of what I love to do.
I guess the last few weeks I have had to put things into perspective. I always did DT work for fun, it was never to make a name for myself and there is certainly not any money in it, quite the opposite. When it starts to take away from my time, my family, our finances and how I feel about myself, then I knew it was time to retire, maybe just for a while.
I am pretty sure at some stage I will go back to it. But for now I am taking a much needed break. Still totally addicted to this craft and am sure I will still be around with the odd challenge entry here & there. So don't go unfollowing me just yet lol.
So catching up...
First up a layout for UHK Gallery. In pastels!! Yes I know, very very rare for me! I have used the stunning 'Pastel' range. Just love the colors in this collection, they are all different but work together so well!
Next up is the just released awesome challenge at Once Upon A Sketch.
This month's theme is 'an event that changed your life'. And yes my bestie, Nadia Cannizzo is getting a work on my layouts this week lol. After chatting almost daily for 3 years we finally met in person a few months ago when I flew to Sydney to stay with her and her gorgeous family. And for me it was life changing as I know she will be a friend for life :)
And here is the sketch:
Awesome prizes up for grabs as always and incredible DT samples to inspire you! Check it out here
