MOVE - Honestly, while I exercised almost half the days in July, I really don't feel that I was very successful with my goal to include regular exercise and daily activity into my schedule. As with all healthy living goals, I'm reminding myself that moving more is good for me and something that I'll continue to work on throughout my life. This month I'll be focusing on this goal a lot as I feel like it's the one that has gotten the least attention the past few months. (In fact, I've already ridden the exercise bike and completed a strength training routine today!)
LEARN - I attended several in-person classes where I learned about new products, tried new techniques, and had FUN creating. I especially like the cards I created at the Heartfelt Creations Card Class I took at Personal Scrapbook.
At the Beyond Intro Bible Journaling Class at The Little Blue House (not-so) local scrapbook store, I enjoyed using some familiar illustrated Bible journaling techniques and learning a few new ones! I especially like this light bulb illustration (which I traced in my Bible using graphite paper) from the instructor, Tonya Hamilton. (She shares lots of Bible journaling INSPIRATION on her Messy Bible Facebook page.)
Candi, the owner of Personal Scrapbook, invited me to attend an event put on by The Collins Group, a manufacturer's sales rep group for a host of companies including Ranger, Sizzix, Bo Bunny, and Bella Blvd. We created several projects at the event and saw some demonstrations (which I'll share more about in a future post). Here's a look at two of the projects we completed - a mini-pallet and a slider card.
I also completed several more lessons in the free Inspired Faith class at Scrapbook.com (which I shared HERE and HERE) and watched a video in the FIT 2016 workshop. This month I'm planning to complete the remaining lesson in the Inspired Faith class and catch up with the materials in the FIT workshop.
TEACH - I taught three Illustrated Bible Journaling Workshops and hosted two Demos & Devotionals Bible Journaling "Crops" in July. Here's a look at a couple of the groups of ladies who joined me.
This month I only have one event scheduled, but I'll be busy working on my fall roster of classes.
SCRAP- I didn't create any layouts in July, however I did put together the page kits for my Christmas layout, and I caught up with the pages in my 2016 Gratitude Journal. (Jan, Feb, March, April, May, June)!
I'm really feeling the need to scrapbook, so I'm considering joining in with Shimelle's new class this month. Who's already signed up?
CLEAN - We finally have (almost) everything moved out of the old toy room, so this month I'll be prepping and painting the walls as we get ready to turn it into the new craft room!
Did you accomplish your goals for July? What are your plans for August?
