(a few of you may wonder what's happening with Project 12. No worries! SCT and I have plans and will be sharing them shortly. In the meantime, hold on to your December layouts for a wee bit).
On to 2012.
2012. Many changes coming my way this year. It feels like I've been reborn, if that makes any sense. I've been defining myself in a certain way for a long time, but that all changes this year.
Sometimes that's very scary.
But in the end, change is good! Change is a chance to refresh. Renew. To evaluate your like and make changes when you need to, or carry on if it still feels right.
Tomorrow night is orientation for Grad School. Oh my, I can't believe after graduating in 1999 with my BA, I am headed back, but it feels right. I've always wanted to finish and head into the classroom as a teacher. Payton is in Kindergarten, which would put her in first grade when I'm finished with the program, which means I won't have to worry about who's caring for her during the day. My time is now. And I'm taking hold and running with it.
I issued a challenge on the Studio Calico blog this morning. I hope you will check it out. It's all about writing a letter to yourself and sealing it up tight, not to be opened until 12/31/12 when you can evaluate the changes you've made, the goals you've achieved, and what you thought you'd be doing at that moment. It was a great challenge for myself this time of year.
I'm also doing Project Life, so I wanted to include it in my album somewhere, in a safe place, so I used a 12x12 page protector and stitched it up tight.
Making confetti for a page protector is great fun! So is my new Cameo (that doily was my very first cut. Isn't it fabulous!?)
Happy New Year! Davinie
