What I’ve been up to March 2018 edition

Well I was going to blog my 30 days pages each day but that didn’t happen so look for a big post on that in the next couple of days.

I’m still working on my Awesome Ladies Book of Me project. I am really loving this project this year and loving that I am starting to tell my stories not just our family’s stories

I supported the Crafty Ass Female podcast Patreon. I so love this podcast. Kristin & Amanda are awesome. It’s like hanging out with 2 crafty ass friends and just having a great time.

Apart from that – work and the kids are taking up the rest of my time.

What’s next?

I’m doing the 100 Happy Days photo project again. I love this and this will be the fourth year I’ve done this. Just snapping a quick pic of what’s making me happy that day. I’ll be blogging it over at Nightwolf’s Den. You can also see past years there too.

The 100 Day Project starts on April 3. This year I’m giving myself a bit more freedom – 100 days of doing something crafty. So I can do as little or as much as I have time for each day. I’ll be blogging about it, most likely once a week. Maybe. We’ll see how I go.
