Some of you may be saying to yourself… what the heck is a Pollywog? Well, technically, it’s a tadpole. But this week’s “new” thing is that I am a new Pollywog at The Lilypad!
I got a message during Thanksgiving weekend from Kelly, one of the owners at The Lilypad. She asked if I would want to help out with the blog at The Lilypad and join the Pollywog team there. I thought about it and said yes! The Lilypad has always been a favorite store of mine since I started digi-scrapping in 2006. Not only that, but a lot of my digi-friends hang out there or are designers/pollywogs there, so it was a natural fit. :)
So starting soon, I will be blogging 3-4 times per month over at the Lilypad blog. Watch for it!
Oh and also, I scrapped a digital page last week! It had been a while.
I used the AWESOME new collaboration kit “Star On Top” by One Little Bird (my friend Peppermint) and Amy Martin. I also used “Star On Top” Journaling Cards in my layout. You can find the kit and journaling cards at both Oscraps and The Lilypad.
Some other little bits of “new” last week… for the first time ever, Todd and I made dinner reservations for a nice dinner out for Thanksgiving, since it was just the two of us this year. We ate our Thanksgiving meal at Pacifica Del Mar. The food was really good and the views were great!
Todd and I were both groggy from cold medicine…
Turkey with gravy, garlic mashed potatoes, stuffing, cranberries, and green beans.
A little pumpkin pie…
and burnt crème for dessert. Yum!
Unfortunately, we both got sick with a cold last Wednesday so our whole Thanksgiving break was spent at home nursing our colds on the couch. That was “new” too!
About This Project
New52 is a project started by Peppermint and I to encourage each other and others around us to try something new every week in 2011. The "new" each week doesn't have to be something big. It could be something as simple as ordering a new dish instead of old standbys at your favorite restaurant. It's simply opening your heart up to NEW possibilities.
Don't worry if you're late getting started on joining in. It's totally OK if you miss a week here or there. We encourage everyone to keep an open mind about trying something new. This is a life project, and a photography/blog and even scrap challenge if you wish. If you participate this week, please leave a link to your blog post in the comments of this post.
