Q: After reading 212 questions, are you wondering what in the world you were thinking when you created this post? : )
A: If you’ve been visiting my blog for a while, you know that I invite your questions from time to time. I know you have questions. I’m happy to answer them. Obviously I can’t get to all of them, but I’m doing my best to get to lots of random topics. I think you guys are pretty super and I’m happy to share. That’s what my blog is for.
Q: Do you have any Halloween decorating ideas?
A: Autumn is my favorite season but this year I’m not as seasonally decorative as I’d like to be. We have so many other projects going on. But … I did put a cluster of pumpkins (collected over a few years) in the center of our kitchen table. That’s our reminder of the season … even though we’re still pushing 90 degrees right now. : (
Q: How do you organize your laundry? (I know that’s random, but there has to be a better system than I’m using!)
A: Our laundry baskets are in our master bedroom closet. It’s very simple. Plastic baskets are from Target. We like sturdy. Not bags. One for whites, one for colors, one for towels. The reason we wash towels separately is that we don’t use liquid fabric softener with our towels like we do with our clothes. Why? Because it can cause the towels to be less absorbent. How do we keep those towels soft? Fabric softener dryer sheets. I don’t do laundry on a certain day or schedule it or anything. I know that works for some people. I do it on an as-needed basis. Incidentally, right now I have piles and piles of clean laundry that I need to put away.
Q: I am desperate for the file for the Adult life story pages. I need them for an activity for this Friday 10/23 and the link is not working anymore.
A: Here you go! Good luck with your activity. And I’m attaching the teen version again too, since some of you were asking for that.
Q: What CK issue will be your last that I can expect to see your work?
A: The December 2009 issue of Creating Keepsakes will have my last article in it. I believe that issue is now available, or will be very soon.
Q: Can I just guess that you are going to be asked the status of the 365 kit about a billion times? lol But seriously, my question is “do you know what’s next for you in the scrapbooking industry?” You have such great ideas, I hope we can continue to see them!
A: Yes, you can guess that. While I didn’t get a billion of those questions, it was absolutely the most popular question. No, I am not “bringing back” Project 365.
I have been working on a product that is better and more flexible. This kit is perfect for those who want to (and are able to) keep up with taking a picture a day. AND … it will be a kit that also works for those of you (and those you know) that would prefer a slower pace. It’s better. It reaches a broader audience. It’s going to be the perfect gift for someone you know. And it’s so stinking fun. More on this very soon, as we’re trying to make it available before the holidays.
So that’s what’s next for me in this industry. I’m not looking to work full-time. I’m just really passionate about creating solutions for people that want to scrapbook without all the time & money that scrapbooking sometimes entails. So that’s where I am. Just have a couple things up my sleeve.
Q: Are you going to do another Christmas card kit?
A: This is something else that I will address in more detail soon, but I wanted to at least let you know that I’ve been working on a solution for your holiday cards that I think will make a lot of you really, really happy. ; )
Stay tuned. There is obviously so much more to come around here.
