Welcome to a new month! We’ve made it out of winter and here in Idaho we’ve already welcomed and said goodbye to spring. At least that’s what it feels like to me. April was a strange month with every variety of weather from snow to 80+ degree weather. My tulips came and went but this is the year I’m moving them to a more suitable location. The Currently! linkup is brought to you once again by that fantastic team of Anne in Residence and Jenna of Gold and Bloom. Well, let’s get to it!
Celebrating – A big step for me in blogging! I’m working on a weekly episode featuring my card sketches which I’ve titled Necessary Chaos. I’m on Episode 2 at this point but I have several more ready to go. I hope you’ll check them out as they unveil. It’s all part of my 50-year master plan to become a world-famous blogger. It was a 75-year plan but I’ve decided to be optimistic.
Reading – For someone who goes through 3-4 books a month, this one is a loaded question. Then there are the audiobooks I’m listening to and the articles on being a better blogger. Oh, I must not forget the reading I’ve been doing to better educate myself on using Photoshop and a bit of CSS coding. I will say that since having a stroke my brain seems to be a sponge. Of course, once you overfill a sponge we all know what happens. Thankfully I can bookmark all those articles because remembering is not my strong point.
Pondering – What I want this space to be about. With all the reading I’ve been doing this past month about being a better blogger and creating a place that people are interested in visiting, I’ve been doing quite a bit of pondering on the subject. Staying on task is not as easy as it was for me prior to having a stroke. One of the biggest challenges for me is going to be consistency.
Sipping – I’m sure everyone else is going to list a delicious drink here. Not me. When I think of sipping I think of tasting. I’ve been enjoying a taste of Distress Inks this month. Thanks to the various little things I do to earn money online, I’ve been able to cash in on some Amazon gift cards. With those gift cards, I’ve been able to get 12 colors of ink. I feel like this was the element I was missing and I can’t wait to share the projects I’ve been doing in the coming weeks.
Going – I seem to be on a theme here so let’s finish it off with…Going to be famous! Sure! I’m a firm believer in the power of positive affirmations. I remind myself several times a week that I’m a world-famous blogger. Sure, I’m still waiting to be discovered but that’s just a detail.
Well, that was fun! Thanks once again to Anne & Jenna. Be sure to check out some of the other folks participating in the link up this month.
Until next time!
