I have had the craziest week (two interviews earlier this week, another one today and several house showings) and I’m not seeing a restful, relaxing weekend ahead. I really needed to give myself a do-able challenge this month, something that I can easily accomplish. Challenges don’t always have to be the kind that stretch you, they just have to be something that gets you to create.
This month, I’ve decided to follow along with a new series Shimelle started on her blog called Starting Points. She offers up a page design as a starting point and you copy it or take inspiration from in and take it in whatever direction works for you.
Page design has always been a weakness for me. If I’m not following a sketch or scraplifting a layout, I can push paper around on a 12×12 sheet of cardstock for hours and never go anywhere. I learned long ago that for me to be productive, I need a place to start. I loved both of the designs that Shimelle has posted so far here and here, so I’m going to take her starting points and create some layouts quickly and easily.
I can’t wait to pick out some photos and papers and get down to the business of creating. I’ll be revealing my results next week! I sure have missed my creative time this week. I guess it’s a taste of what’s to come if I’m lucky enough to land one of these positions and start working full time again. Fingers crossed.
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you have a fantastic weekend!
