I can’t believe it’s 2022 already. The older I get, the more time seems to fly. It seems like only yesterday that my oldest daughter was a baby. She’s 19 and finished her first semester of college at Montclair State University. It’s one of the reasons I’m glad I started to scrapbook 20 years ago. Time is fleeting and it’s nice to be able to look back on the memories we’ve made.
As I sit here and ponder what 2022 will look like for me, I thank God for my life and my health. My family was touched by Covid over Christmas. My daughter, Emilee started out with a sore throat which turned into a fever and headache. A few days later, on Christmas Eve, she tested positive for Covid. I also got tested because I was suffering with sinus congestion but tested negative. Thankfully no one else caught it and she is officially out of quarantine today. I’m grateful to God, so very grateful.
2022 is going to be Big! I’m going to “DO THE THINGS,” as Vicki Boutin says. I’m going to do what I’ve only been dreaming about and that is to get back into teaching. I want to show my fellow creators the why behind great design. So often scrapbookers don’t create because they are intimidated by other projects on Social Media. I’ve been there and thought my work wasn’t good enough, but it is and so is yours. I’m here to tell you that you can do all the things! You can create beautiful pages with what you have. I’ve been on design teams where I created with what I had and simply because I loved to create, but that’s a whole other topic! Knowing basic design principles, color theory, and principles of typography will not only stream line your process but give you the confidence to explore new techniques and open your creativity even more!
I can’t wait to get started!! I hope you join me on this new journey.
