So what is your One Little Word this year?
I am not 100% convinced on the concept as I have so many different "compartments"
in my life but for the last few years have been playing along anyway as I find it DOES help.
Last year my word was FOCUS & I did quite well with it.
This year my word is STREAMLINE which is rather similar -
it means "to make simpler or more efficient".
SIMPLER is NOT in my nature & while I am EFFICIENT it takes me a LONG TIME.
Time is not going to be on my side as I embark on several new projects this year,
all of which I will talk about here as they happen. I want to fit in MORE without
compromising my adrenal glands any more than they already have been!!
I have 3 definite changes coming up that will require more input from me,
so STREAMLINING is not a choice. It will be difficult as I love being hands-on
with everything but tend to micro-manage, which means getting less done.
So I'm letting go of my perfectionism in return for something more realistic,
achievable & sustainable! It helps that "light mixed media" is now more
fashionable than technique-laden pages!! My head is spinning with
changes I want to make to how I work & what I get done but I don't have
everything totally thought out yet so I won't bore you with details!
I have some EXCITING NEWS!
I am part of the Studio 75 Team for the next 6 months!
Studio 75 are a Polish Manufacturer. You can find their blog HERE.
They have been around for a couple of years now & when I saw their
recent call I checked out their site & was very impressed with the
level of sophistication of their papers. Very classy!!
I really love "wall paper" papers.
To me these are the type that are the most versatile & easiest to work with.
Themed papers are the opposite for me. I like to work with papers when
I like & for what I like so anything seasonal with specific images is far too
restrictive Pale colours are great too because they can always be changed
with mediums or feature brighter embellishments that I know will really pop!
I am also delighted to say that I was featured late last year on Marjie Kemper's
blog in her "Tuesday Textures" feature HERE as well as in Prima's recent
2014 Thank You line up! YAY!! You can see that post HERE.
That post went up on the 2nd so 2015 went off with a bang!!
