Life's a Whirlwind!

Well, I'm not very regular on updating my blog! LOL...I got tagged by Rach but I'll have to figure out how to do it and find 4 others to tag who haven't been tagged yet. I'll play, Rach, just give me a little time! :D

Well, the last post talked about the Scrapworks DT which I didn't win. But that's OK! I really feel there will be a company come along that is a good fit for me. Until then, I'll work on honing my skills, submitting to the mags, and building my portfolio. Looking at this as a business rather than strictly a hobby has changed my mindset about some things. But there will always be that fun, creative, rewarding side to it, especially with my buds at 123-Scrap! And, my friend Melissa and I are putting together some great ideas for cropping with the military wives! It's going to be a blast, and a wonderful time for us all to get together and support one another.

I even made myself some business cards!

They follow my current style, which April christened "feminine grunge." Love the messy ink and love the pink and sparkle, too! :D

I'm having a big MK sale to try and get rid of as much of my inventory as possible. The deadline for my product return is approaching. I am sure it's the right decision...there are numerous reasons for it, and I've prayed about it a lot. It was a good thing for a season, and I've learned some things that will serve me well in the future, but it's time to let it go.

On another note, Kevin, Jr. made the speech team at school. He is very excited and will compete in Austin on Feb. 18th. He shows natural talent for speaking in front of people--must've gotten that from his Daddy! Another wonderful thing about this is that he, as the middle child, finally has something of "his own" that he is good at, and not competing with his older brother or baby sister. It's a good thing. :)

Guess that's it for now!
