Well, I just sent off my first article for Scrapbooks etc.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I proposed an idea and it was accepted and slated for October---basically I just wrote the text and conceptualized the article. Oh, I did two of the projects also. I've been working with the fabulous Tracy Kyle (she's one of my all time favorite scrappers!!!) to get everything together. Of course I can't really reveal anything about the article, I will say that its different and fresh...I think you'll like it! This has been a goal of mine...to do some more writing. I did several articles for PaperKuts--and I really enjoy the process. So look for my piece in the techniques section of Scrapbooks etc...coming in October!
Oh and for the record...I turned my work in two days early!! Its a MIRACLE!! (says me...the procrastinator). Sure feels good to check something off of my very long to-do list.
Speaking of writing...I have sure been pondering my life lately. In all of my spare time :) For the last few years I said I was going to finish my degree (after Abby started school--well, then, I had Cash and I've been so busy with everything else). I've wanted to get my bachelors in graphic design...but I worry that there's not much opportunity for me where I live with that degree. So, I've been thinking about English. I love to write. It makes sense. I've applied to the college and looked into financial aid...wouldn't that be nice! I have taken the baby steps toward this goal. I know that I would feel a huge sense of accomplishment if I finished college. We'll see. I've said before that I've learned my lesson on making plans. I figure the good Lord will show me which path to take all in good time. It sure would be great if he used big signs like the highway department ... GO TO COLLEGE NOW.
Well, its almost 3 am. Better get in bed, I suppose. Even though I'm really not tired. Mr. Cash-man will be calling in a couple of hours!
Have a great rest of the week...jw
