Kit: Season of Giving collab for Chris by the amazing and wonderful Gingerscraps designers
This week, we have a special kit that was created by our designers, called Season of Giving. Kathy Winters spearheaded the collab, and how she described it to the CT is perfect, I think, for why the kit was created:
For those of you that might not know, Chris’s (altimasport) brother John has been diagnosed with stage 3 Laryngeal Cancer and is fighting hard to survive this horrible disease. He is currently recovering from surgery to remove his entire voice box and will be facing more treatment soon to remove cancer found in lymph nodes. Chris has been working on various fund raisers to support her brother and has also been keeping vigil by his side to lend whatever emotional and spiritual support she can provide. We wanted to show our support in some small way so we put together this collaboration kit to benefit John.
I’ll be honest. While I was writing the post for this last night, I was tearing up. I had to stop and take a break. It was those good tears, though. being part of this community!
This was the layout I created for this. The picture is from a couple years old but I still love it! The template came with the kit, and well, I love it!
I’m watching Julie & Julia on Lifetime right now. The blogging part really speaks to me. I can’t quite put my finger on why
In seriousness, though, I do wonder if people are actually reading my blog. I wonder if there is anyone out there.
I know I don’t have that interesting of a life. I’m boring, and I’m plain. I have a sense of humor, or so I think, but it doesn’t come through in writing well.
In 2012, I’m not going to stress on it, though. I’m not going to worry about if people are reading. I’m going to do this for me. I’m going to do this so that I can remember, create a MEMORY, something I will enjoy. If someone else enjoys what I write, then so be it. That would just be icing on the cake, so to speak.
How will your blogging life be different in 2012, if you’re a blogger?
I liked Acceptance for 2011. It truly helped. I learned to accept a lot of things, and that made living life day to day a lot easier to do.
For 2012, I’m choosing “MEMORY”. I think it’s a good choice, considering I plan on doing a P365 (well, 366 for 2012 ), two P52 (weekly layouts of the kids), and a P12 (month in review). Add into the mix that I want to also do weekly vlogs and the like, MEMORY is the perfect choice!
a:thepoweror process of reproducing or recalling what has been learned and retained especially through associative mechanismsb:the store of things learned and retained from an organism’s activity or experience as evidenced by modification of structure or behavior or by recall and recognition
So, 2012 is going to be all about the memories we will be making, good or bad, happy or sad, etc.
