Oops! We did it again...

My BFF and the other half of Mitten Mom Designs, Kristie and I signed up for Season 6 of ADSR (Amazing Digi Scrap Race). This will be our third consecutive year participating. We are excited, scared, nervous, anxious, giddy, and optimistic!

It seems there are a lot fewer teams participating this year. Will this mean that our chances of winning the grand prize go up? We sure hope so! (Even though we have no clue what we are competing for.)

Mitten Mom Designs has a blog at http://mittenmomdesigns.blogspot.com Please come by and check out our commentary and our layouts.

Biz Bootcamp

So, I really want to take this class....


If just two people click the above banner and sign up, I can get my class for *free*! :) It's a $40 class for four weeks of instruction on making social media work for you. If you run a small online business, this might be the course for you.

You see, I help a couple of digiscrap designers with their behind the scenes and social media stuff. This class should help me do a better a job for them. I might even expand my services to a couple more designers. I don't make any money. LOL Hubby would love it if I did. I get paid in free digiscrap kits. Maybe, someday, that can change.

365 Slacker Alert

I know. I shouldn’t apologize for not posting my photos more often. I know I shouldn’t put so much pressure on myself. I do not do well with a lot of pressure/stress.

Recently found and joined this great new site, Capture Your 365. It is the creation of Katrina Kennedy… and just what I need.

Today, an article by guest blogger Myra Cherchio totally spoke to my heart, my mind, and etc. WOW!

I love that I can capture an image with whatever I can get my hands on: point and shoot, iPhone, or my DSLR. It really doesn’t matter. The point is that I preserved a moment through my eyes. My story. My memory.

I need to eliminate the pressure of the perfect photograph/snapshot/portrait. Let go and just shoot. I’m preserving a moment in my family history. OUR history.

Sometimes I document our days by doing layouts that contain our whole month or week. Most of the time, I choose to focus on a single moment in my layouts. I do not dare attempt to scrap a page a day. I barely get a photo taken every day.

I do need to push myself to get my pictures off of my cameras, memory cards, and phone more often. I’ll work on it.

Don’t expect any huge changes in my blogging habits any time soon.
