My first commercially available scrapbook kit!

Well, we seem to have another day where by the time I sit down to blog, I’m just too darn brain-beat to do much.  LOL  So I hope you’ll forgive me if I just share a little news.  🙂

I spent most of yesterday and today finishing up and packaging my first scrapbooking kit to be released at Polka Dot Plum.  Yep.  I’m on my way to becoming a designer.  I don’t have a launch date to share just yet, but it won’t be long.  And I’ll be launching with two, possibly three digital scrapbook kits.  So it’s a little nerdy, I can’t help it.  I’m excited about it.

I started in the design apprentice program at the Plum back in the Spring.  It took longer than initially planned to get through it as I ended up having to go on hiatus when business got a little crazy.  So this has been something I’ve been looking forward to for almost a year, which is why I hope you’ll forgive the dorky excitement.

Want a peek?  Here’s what one of the kits looks like (and the preview doesn’t include all of the scrapbook elements):

Scraptastic Saturdays – it’s been a while

Okay…  so I realize it’s been a little while since I did a scraptastic saturday post.  Honestly?  My life hasn’t left me much time for hobbies lately.  LOL  And scrapbooking is definitely a hobby.  One I really enjoy, but a hobby just the same.  So when life goes crazy, it’s the first thing to go.

Thankfully, I was able to make a little time for it this week.  I didn’t get much done…  but it did feel nice to be back at it, even for what little time I was.

As many of you know, I’m apprenticing at Polka Dot Plum.  Yes, I’ve already designed a few kits… but I am new to designing, and I’m sure I have a lot to learn.  And the apprentice program has already been a huge help.  I am loving creating papers from scratch.  Creating my own textures, creating my own photoshop brushes, and “painting” the digital papers.  🙂  Love it!  It’s honestly such a zen activity for me.  The rest of the world just disappears and I lose myself within it.  Definitely worth finding the time for.   Yay me!
