Hi again! I know, I know, I’m actually blogging again! Believe me, I have missed it but as some of you might know, I’ve been busy! If you follow me on Instagram, you know I decided to start my own business. This idea came to me last year when I had answered the question “what would be your dream job?”. I actually have more than one, but one of my answers was to own my own stationary/paper goods store. I decided to just go for it and during December I registered my store’s name, Bosc Paper Supply Co., here in my city. I came up with the name Bosc because that is my favorite type of pear and I wanted to be able to play off of the name The Lovely Pear. So long story short, I am running my own business online. Will I ever get a store? Who knows but I’m having fun the way it is now. That’s one thing off the bucket list! Now to see Duran Duran in concert so I can mark one more off!
Aside from starting Bosc, I also started a new job which isn’t really a big deal but I’m an over-analyzer so if you can just imagine smoke coming out from the top of head, that was me all February long. Then March I realized there was a stranger living in my house. My little clingy, lovable son went missing and all of a sudden there was a teenager sleeping in his bed. Yes, motherhood has now taken me to the next stage of my child’s life. I don’t know why raising a teenager is hard for me because I practically still feel like one myself! I mean come on, it wasn’t THAT long ago that I was in high school! But then again when somebody says “10 years ago” I think of the early nineties.
Sometimes I think if I had a clone, one of us could take over The Lovely Pear and the other run Bosc, but in all reality, we’d probably both chill on the couch and be lazy together. Wishfull thinking!
I’m going to count everything you just read as my “2017 year in review” and we’re just going to fast forward to my Project Life layout for February.
I decided to go with 6×8 pages for this year, knowing that I’m not going to have as much time to scrapbook. The pocket pages I used were 6×8 Design 3 and Design 4 from Becky Higgins.
I used inserts from past A Beautiful Mess kits and stamps from past Kelly Purkey kits. For the journaling card, I used one of Kellie Stamps digital stamps. Unfortunately, I could not find the link for any of these items. Boo.
I didn’t take many photos during this month because I really didn’t think I was going to try to make a layout. I ended up taking some last minute photos at the end of the month around my house and I just love how this page came out! (Psst… you can find those black scissors on the Bosc website!)
Believe it or not, I’m working on my March layout AND… I made a layout for the Studio Calico June Documenter Workshop! I can’t wait for you to see it, it’s one of my favorite layouts!
Thanks guys for coming back, you have no idea how much I appreaciate it!
