Time to reflect on what I have created during this year
& I am glad to see that I have found new ways to use up my paper stash,
with very few non-paper purchases along the way.
A thorough sort out reminded me what was in stock,
which was a good place to start thinking about how I would use up my supply.
My mantra has been "No new paper until this is used up".
I have also worked on projects started in the previous year,
which is always satisfying.
Looking through all the projects, my favourite is the shadow box made in June,
which is the first shadow box I have made.
Another first for this year was making a video.
There are two short videos on my You Tube channel.
I have changed computers, which means I have lost the use of my Photo Impact software
& therefore restricted in what digital work I can produce.
I should embrace change, but sometimes that is easier said than done.
I miss the software & the creativity it gave me.
I found one new challenge site, Color Stories Inspiration,
which inspired me to record special memories from my life.
I enjoyed the journey through time & the memories rekindled.
It is important to reaffirm positive memories & not dwell on negative ones.
I am looking forward to what the new year will bring
& still have a few of this years projects to work on ...
