A Bit of a Shift

I feel like since the beginning of the year I have needed to sit down and write this post.  As I am sure most of you have noticed, the focus of my blog has kind of shifted.  Not that I had a hard and fast theme before, but currently it is filled with a lot of scrapbooking / memory keeping.  If you follow these parts on a regular basis, you know that my "One Little Word" for 2013 is DOCUMENT.  I am taking it seriously ladies and by the end of the year there are going to be a lot less pictures piled  in a box and a lot more memories organized and documented in a easy to decipher format....hopefully close to chronologically.  As a result of this shift in focus for me, instead of completely abandoning my blog, there is going to be a lot more layout and Project Life posts.  I am not saying that I won't occasionally throw in a post or two regarding goings on around these parts that don't have to do with what I am working on at the time, but for the foreseeable future, my heart is focused on getting this one area of my life organized and under control.  It may sound strange, but I think it is going to bring me a great sense of accomplishment and peace.

I have considered the fact that this may cause me to lose some readers and I am prepared for that.....looking at scrapbook layouts and messy work desks may not be some of your cups of tea and if not, I sincerely hope that you enjoyed your time visiting.  I fully intend to continue to share the monthly posts from my awesome contributors.  I hope that you will check back sometime in the near future when I very well may have reverted back to my old ways.  For those of you that are planning on sticking it out with me, thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Your daily comments mean the world to me and the ideas and inspiration you provide are invaluable.  

In the midst of all the scrapping I have been doing, a very sweet lady contacted me via my original business website that I have not done anything to since I got my Facebook page up.  After a brief phone conversation, she hired me to address her son's wedding invitations.  What a surprise that was and I am really excited to get those done for her.  After all this time, I never expected to get a phone call from my website.  So in addition to scrapping my heart out right now, I am also addressing wedding invitations!

I hope that you are all having a great week!  Since it is virtually impossible for me to complete a post without at least one photograph, I am going to leave you with a little something that is completely not related, but never ceases to bring a smile to my face......

  1. Well I'm thrilled about this, but I'm a papercrafter at heart. I can't wait to see you get all your pictures documented CNN ours such a great feeling!

  2. I'm not going anywhere!!! Whats this other business you have?

  3. As a scrapbooker, I am with you :)
    I remember when my blog kind of took the same shift. In fact, I started a new one (my current) because I made the personal one private between my husband and I while he is traveling so much.
    I know quite a few relatives and friends said they missed the personal stories in the beginning. But I figure that is what facebook is for now :)

  4. Isn't it great to be able to blog about what you love! I'm a scrapper too, but sadly, don't get around to it nearly as often as I'd like too. Hopefully you will inspire me to make more time for it this year!
