- Today is my 40th birthday! After spending a lot of time thinking about how I want to celebrate, I decided I will be spending my 40th year trying 40 things I've always wanted to do. I started a list (which you can see here) and have been adding to it over the past month. On my list are places I've never been, foods I've never eaten, crafts I've never done, cooking techniques I've never tried, and a bunch of other miscellaneous things I've always wanted to do. I'll have periodic updates here on the blog to let you know how I'm coming on my 40 Things.
- My first paid article is being published today! While my #1 job is being a stay-at-home mom to Trevor, it has long been a goal of mine to make money in the scrapbook industry. When I applied as a Scrapjazz Contributor, I didn't think I would get the job. Paid jobs are rare in the scrapbook industry, with lots of people competing for them. I was absolutely thrilled when I was offered the job. I turned in my first article in early January and was told it would be published in March. Just a few days ago, I found out that the exact publication date would be March 12, my 40th birthday! What a happy coincidence.
My first article, "Using Your Camera's Self-Timer" can be found under New Articles in the Learning section of Scrapjazz.com.
Have a wonderful day everyone! I know I will!
