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):
Click on the image to see it full size, and to get a good feel for the very real textures. So yeah! Keep an eye on my blog and at the Plum: http://www.polkadotplum.com/ I’ll be sure to let ya’ll know when I’ve launched, and I promise to have a goodie or special of some kind just for those of you who read my blog. 🙂
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!
