One big announcement is I'm now on CREATE magazine's Design Team! I'm so excited and nervous all at the same time. The first issue for 2015 is coming up soon and I can't wait to share! It's fabulous and packed full of goodness!
Don't know what CREATE is? That's ok, it's still fairly new. It's a bi-monthly digital magazine that Scrapbook Generation offers. It's free and fabulous. It debuted in January of 2014 and with monthly issues, you can find them here, if you haven't taken a look I encourage you to do so. The inspiration is really outstanding and you can't beat FREE!
I had a feature in the June issue, for my son's 2nd birthday party. It starts at page 133. Who would have thought that going to my very first scrapbook retreat and using that time to get a head start on Riley's birthday party would have landed me a feature in a magazine? I was so honored when Debbie asked if she could write up an article on the party. Riley turns 3 this year with a bash that will rival the last, you might see that one too.
All in all there will be more layouts shared, cards shared and I'm hoping to show you some organizing solutions I've worked on in the past year. Going from my room to a closet and desk in a shared room has made me rethink everything, you might have some of the same challenges and I hope I can share some nifty organizing solutions I've found.
If you've wondered where I've been and why I haven't been around the answer is easy, Riley. Not that he is so demanding of attention, because now he far more independent, but because he has some pretty severe medical issues. He's going to turn 3 in a few months and still can't eat solid foods, yes, you heard that correctly. He underwent every test we could think of the last half of the year, hence me being away, to try and find the root cause. To put it simply there isn't anything "fixable" wrong. He has reflux that was pretty severe when he was an infant, the first medication he was on didn't help, he has a new one that actually works. The problem is now he doesn't think he can eat since he couldn't eat without pain when he was younger. It will be a long process to get him on the road to recovery but we can do it! Meanwhile he's happy, healthy and growing right on track thanks to supplements.
