Taking a break....

Well, for all of you who know my via scrapbooking, this will come as a bit of a surprise. I have decided to resign from all of my design teams. I am shocked at myself! I just made the Treasured Scrapbooking and Color Me Daisy Design teams. These are 2 teams of have wanted to be on for about a year. I love everything about these 2 sites. But, my life has taken a turn that I didn't expect. A good change!!!! I have been guest teaching full time since about day 6 of school this year. I am currently in a long term spot for first grade and LOVE it. My scrapbooking obsession has taken a backseat to my obsession with teaching. I LOVE coming up with creative ways to teach he curriculum. I am always thinking about what to teach, tools to support the curriculum and projects we can do on the side. That is my new creative addition to decorating the classroom, hallway bulletin board AND coming up with crafts for the kids. I have thoroughly enjoyed being on design teams. Love it, love it, love it! But, I have noticed that my heart has not been into scrapping like it once was. My layouts are not "wowing' me anymore. I think it is time I take a break and simplify my life a little. I am thinking of doing memory books from Walgreen's every once in a while instead. That way I am still documenting life's little moments, because that will never stop in me!
I will still use my blog to post pics of what we have been doing. You just won't see many layouts. I will still scrap, but it will be because I WANT to, not because I HAVE to meet a deadline.
If you want to keep up with a comment on my blog. Or, I think a bunch of my online friends are on my Facebook friend's list. If not, friend me!
Take care!
