It’s been a long time since I’ve posted

It’s been about a month and a half… I had a little epiphany during that time, I was spending all together too many hours blogging, promoting, social media scheduling and all-in-all talking about other people’s scrapbooking than I was actually doing what made me happy. So I made a few changes about how my free time is being spent. And trust me, there is less of it with the pupster around!

I also realized another thing, too – I missed storytelling! I used to be one who included more journaling than the average bear on a page but I’d gotten away from it because I usually had a small amount of time to GET something finished. I wasn’t telling stories, I was just scrapping with products. I’m trying to do that more intentionally now, with the focus on stories again.

So let me get caught up with the pages done since early February. You’ll notice where my inner storyteller gets her butt back in gear!

Let’s catch up a little…

Adding a new puppy to the family certainly places a few new constraints on my free time. I’ve learned to tiptoe around a napping “toddler” again to try to get a few things done. He certainly is pretty darn sweet though… when he’s not nipping our toes or ankles 😉
