Been Awhile...Now What?

It has been a while since I last posted on my blog and seeing as this is a place I get to express myself...
I know some of it has been a shift in jobs.  I recently got my dream job and spent the summer preparing for the new school year as a full time Drama teacher.  I get to teach drama to all 6th, 7th & 8th graders in my building and I love it everyday. The time to plan over the summer was very needed and enjoyed as I got to take some fun summer classes.  The work I put in took me away from my memory making & crafting time.
My daughter has started middle school and has had some struggles adjusting and getting settled in. Any parent with a child who has an IEP (Individualized Education Plan for those who might not know) knows this can be a concern at times.  It also has taken away some time.
The last thing was a lack of inspiration and desire tobe in my crafting space. I finished up working with Design Cuttin' Divas (who I love and say go see their weekly challenge it is a blast) and did not seem inspired to create things. I would sit at my desk and not know what to make - even with stacks and stacks of photos to work with.
I had the crafting blahs...BUT...
I am starting to make my way back into my crafting space and eager to work with the memories I have captured on film. I know many of my followers may not stop by for awhile, but I want to say thanks to anyone who does and let you know I so enjoy visiting different blogs and seeing all the wonderful love put into creating projects

 As I know in the end that is the main reason most of us choose to create and share.


  1. Hello! Glad to see you trying to juggle your schedule too. This year has been one with limited time and lots of school needs. Hope you are able to craft more real soon. Look for some challenges to help get you going..that is what I am going to do...Paper Playful is the best place to see them all in one spot.

  2. So glad you are finding time to get back to crafting... I know the struggles are real.. we've all had them! I'm happy you found your dream job and I hope to see more projects from you, when you can find the time! I also hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful... :) Have a great day! :)
