Podfest in Orlando, FL is coming up soon, too. The annual AMWA meeting in Philadelphia will be held in March, and then I think no more conferences nor travel until the summer. As I contemplate my trips, Cal has been looking at brochures for ocean cruises. I think I like the idea of another river cruise better. Maybe even one here in the USA? I believe that a lot of travel this year will be just too much.
I'm going to take a style class in journalism at a local junior college, too. There are some sticking points of grammar I need to work on, and I need to understand AP style requirements. I remind myself that more writing is always a helpful thing every time I write a blog post or prepare scripts for A Creative Approach Podcast. Getting a critique in a class on ones writing is a little nerve-wracking, but it is an excellent way to learn.
I'm just not finding time for art. I may need to enroll in a class later this year to get me going on projects I want to do but have not made time for them. I am creating, though. I entered the Lilypad's month of challenges, where one creates a scrapbook page a day that meets specific criteria. I may not stay the course with so much happening this month. Here are my first Baker's dozen entries. Details about the layouts can be found on my Facebook page. You'll notice that I've repeated a few templates. These designs have proved versatile and it's interesting to see how they adapt to different photos and themes.
