I have been terrible and really neglected my blog this year so I thought that it was time that I got back into the swing of things and started to blog more regularly.
In a nut shell this year had been a busy one for our family. We came back in mid January from a wonderful family trip in the U.K. Our younger son Jack started at a new school and Ben our older son started Year 7 which was a big jump from the previous year in regards to homework and new challenges. Our life has started a new chapter as having a 12 year old in high school that has got many sport commitments, a social calendar and needs help getting himself organised with homework etc. has impacted us all in one way or another. It is certainly an exciting time along with challenging at times but we are enjoying watching our boys grow up and starting to form their own ideas.
As for my scrapbooking..well that has taken some changes too. I have said goodbye to being on the Design Team of Scrapmatts in which I enjoyed my time for 3 years. I made some wonderful friends along the way and will be forever grateful to Sophie and Andrew for all their support while I was working on the DT. I had some wonderful experiences working at expos in Perth with them and my most memorable was Teaching at the Brisbane Scrapbook Expo last year with Scrapmatts sponsoring me. Here are some of my favourite projects that I created while I was on the DT team.
Since leaving Scrapmatts I have joined another fabulous Design Team. Imaginarium Designs which is a chipboard company based in Adelaide, South Australia and also an online store The Scrapbook Store which is based here in Perth.
I have really enjoyed working with these companies and their products. It has been really refreshing having new challenges and certainly got my creative juices flowing again.
I have promised myself to do regular blog posts from now on ( I have even scheduled time in my calendar). You will be able to see all the fantastic products that I am working with at Imaginarium Designs and The Scrapbook Store.
