I have tried for years to make my blog a part of my process and have failed, repeatedly. I did well last year, keeping up with the TH classes but I need to be my own motivator. I'm going to be realistic and commit to monthly posts. If the mood hits it can be more frequently but I need to be accountable to someone other than myself so if one person reads this, thanks for helping me out.
I'm starting now because another birthday has passed and I refuse to add Taylormade to the list of things that I have been too insecure to follow through on so good bad or messy I'll share the creative mess that pops up/out. It might be a lot since I am going to put serious effort into teaching myself to draw. TG for my Jane Davenport book.
And to make sure I really practice I had to make a book specifically for my efforts. Today I have spent some serious quality time with my awl. My covers are made, signatures finished and tomorrow it's putting it all together.
This past month or so I managed to make a few cards, do a few layouts (personal, a baby album and a couple for my 'dream' album). I even participated in a Tim Holtz tag swap. My first swap in many many moons.
I have a ton of projects rolling around my head (Reneé's ridiculously corny birthday card) for October. I have a few things in the works for friends and family that I hope turn out as amazing as they are in my mind. I guess I should start dreaming up Christmas/Kwanzaa/holiday cards.
