January 2014 Recap

February 2014 Recap

On March 13th, I was incredibly honored to be a speaker at the 11th business boomer summit in San Diego. I passionately delivered a speech to a room of 250+ people about opening up a small business.

Scrapbooking is the perfect past time for baby boomers because it provides retirees with an outlet to record precious memories of loved ones. Since 2012, over 300 women have attended retreats and events at Scrap Diva Retreats.

Boomer Summit

March was when I decided that I needed a new car. My trusted “hot ride” turned 10 years old and with 164 miles on it she gave me 3 flat tires within a few weeks. The last straw was when she broke down at the Scrapbook Expo when I was trying to host a table at the crop and have an EPIC weekend. Although it was the most inconvenient time to get a flat tire. I decided not to let it ruin the weekend and kept on having fun.

Scrap Diva Retreats reserved a table at the Scrapbook Expo in Anaheim on March 22nd 2014.

January 2014 Recap

February was another fabulous month for crafting. We had Shonna Bucaroff teach a mixed media workshop weekend. Shonna taught us how to make exciting background pages using acrylics and stencils. This was the first time most of the students had used a Gelli plate and it was a huge success making pages for our gorgeous winged art journal.

Winged Art Journal

I created an awesome day planner and started following Documented Life Project on Facebook. It was so much fun to keep notes and create bits of artwork throughout the year in the planner. I plan on posting a short video sometime in the next month on this.
