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. 🙂
I am as giddy as a schoolkid! My iPad 2 arrived today. I’d ordered it from the online Apple store a few weeks ago so am super excited that it finally got here. And yes, it’s engraved (with OUR song, my name, and my email address).
Why am I so excited? Well, besides being a gadget nut (I really do love a new tech toy), this is going to make my life sooo much easier. I’ll be able to use it for a lot of things, but the reason I bought it was this:
That’s right! I’m taking my photography business paperless. All my forms will now be electronic only.
Over the next few days I hope to find the time to redesign all my photography releases so that they will now be strictly e-documents. Book me for a shoot, and you’ll be able to fill out your information, and sign your name directly on the iPad. How cool is that???
I also have plans to streamline the booking process as well – but that’s going to take a little more time, a little more investimagating, and a little more work.
I’m excited. This is going to totally change the way I handle all my documents and forms. Sooo looking forward to this.
LMAO Why yes, I’m a nerd. Thanks for asking. LOL
