The first thing I did when I arrived to work this morning was set down my piping hot Pumpkin Spice latte. Then I got down to business and changed my calendar to October. Oh hello, colorful leaves...so lovely to see you!
Today marks the start of the new month and also the completion of the September Creative Challenge. 30 creations and 30 posts in 30 days!
Last night we (Debbie, aka Inspired Honey Bee, and I) celebrated the end of our challenge with a bottle of bubbly and a cheese plate, followed by Lunafest. If you have a chance, go to one of the viewings! My favorite was Love on the Line and Debbie's was Tightly Knit.
I am so happy the September Creative Challenge is behind us. While it was fun, inspiring and a great sense of accomplishment, it was also extremely time consuming. It pushed me daily - to be more creative and to stay on top of my projects and posts. It was really fun to try new creative endeavors (sewing, baking, photography) and experiment with my stand-bys (paper crafts, cooking, gifts). I thought writing the daily posts would be the hardest part, but that ended up being the easiest. Having encouragement and positive support from all of YOU definitely kept me going. I loved your comments, emails and suggestions for future projects. Thank you.
This weekend I plan to do some major cleaning and re-organizing of my craft materials. I will also be planning for my next project(s). The two biggest things I learned are that I do really well when I have a goal and I love posting here on a regular basis. Stay tuned for new projects and some fun changes in store for the whole enchelleada.
In honor of a successful completion of the September Creative Challenge and as a way to thank my lovely readers, I'm giving away a 2011 Paper Source Wall Art Calendar!!
