Sometimes a challenge is just what I need to keep me on track to meet a goal. Two years ago, I challenged myself to read 50 books in one year. I really wanted to read a book a week and I knew that to meet my goal, I would need to document my progress and motivate myself to read daily. I signed up for the Goodreads challenge and took delight in getting a title on my list of finished works. Goodreads posted my progress reports to my Facebook page which made me feel accountable and gave me the support of having my friends cheer me on.
I have participated in a number of scrapbooking challenges and find that they encourage me to complete pages and to try new things. For this week’s challenge, I am working with a new card sketch and the Laughing Lola paper pack plus a set of the Laughing Lola Assortment embellishments with these adorable satin paper clip bows. I’ll include the results in my February newsletter!
My challenge to you this week is to try something new! Use a stamp set or pattern paper you haven’t worked with before or even a sketch. I can’t wait to see what you create.
