Wanna have some fun over at Scrap-Pile?

A little while ago Maree suggested that we run a challenge to custom-design patterned paper... and Maree, I have to say, it was a long time in the making, but it's finally here! Check out our SUPER MINI CHALLENGE - Design your own patterned paper. I had heaps of fun designing a matching range of 3 papers and have done a few other examples which I'll post in the Scrap-Pile gallery shortly... but for now... here's a sneak peak at my 'playful' range... (PS I thought it would be a bit of fun to do it up all professional like the CHA previews)

A change is as good as a holiday...

I've been copping a bit of flack about the minimalistic approach to my blog at the moment, so I thought I'd better right that quick smart!

Firstly, I'd like to explain that I have been awol for a reason. I've just started working for a design company, and have put my business on hold for the moment while I adjust to my new position and evaluate my lifestyle. Yes, it's the midlife crisis thing again! Although I think I've made the right decision and am really happy with the work I've been thrown to date. It seems much simpler (in a way) to work for someone else, and just do what I love doing... designing. I work from Wed-Fri and that's it. No weekends, no all-nighters trying to meet that looming deadline. Although there are still strict timeframes, it's nowhere near as stressful for me, which I am loving. Plus, I can spend quality time with my family after hours without feeling guilty for not working and building my business. All in all, I'm a happy camper for the moment.

On the scrapping front, I've been checking out all those fabulous CHA previews and some of them are absolutely gorgeous... now how's a girl supposed to save money when they keep releasing all this fabo new stuff!!

I'm still designing over at Scrap-Pile and am loving it. They're actually on the look-out for another DT member to fill Melanie's spot when she leaves next month. Melanie, we'll miss you heaps. You are such a beautiful person with loads of creative spark and I'm sure you will achieve all you set out to and much, much more.

Uhm... this is a hard one... SPEND IT on a custom design for my scrap room, then I'd probably invest the rest.
