Boy o’ boy, do I love what I do! Being a part of the pixels2Pages team for the past four and one half years I, along with at least a dozen other women, have been able to pour my heart and soul into this thing, this movement, this digi-home called pixels2Pages.
Pixels2Pages has changed so much over the years. Behind all of the changes was a lot of hard work. Hours of production – monthly; hours of meetings – weekly; and hours of design – daily. I thank you all for recognizing and rewarding us with your gratitude and patronage for all of our hard work. It makes it all worth while.
While we are busy creating videos, Blueprints, Pixie Dust, Challenges, marketing materials, crop itineraries, handouts, tips, product for the Panstoria Store and tons of sample pages for each and every item, we may not have as much time to work on our own projects. Working on our own scrapbook pages and projects sometimes takes a backseat to the workload. Sure, we incorporate our personal pages into everything we do. That may be the only way we get things done. It is just that for me, I am unable to work in the order I would normally work. I generally like to start a project and complete it, but in order to keep the offering a little exciting and new, I have to work on several different projects at once. Thus, it takes much longer for me to actually complete a project.
You may have noticed that recently we had a crop at pixels2Pages. It was the Easy as 1…2…3 Crop. I was so excited about this crop because for the first time in a long time, I would be around the entire weekend AND I would be able to work on my own project. Sure, I would have to take some time to moderate the pixels2Pages Facebook page while enjoying all of the fabulous pages you guys were creating, but this time I would be cropping alongside you all for the entire time. My goal was to complete my Mackinac Island 2014 book. No… I didn’t reach my goal, but I put a huge dent in it. I was using the Time of My Life Blueprint Book that I designed specifically with this trip in mind. I also used the “Easy as” Blueprints. Blueprints really do make it easy to get it done, fast and with flair. I am in love with the pages I have created. Here are just a few of the layouts I have already prepared (and shared on Facebook). I still have to go through my book, proofing and editing. That’s ok. I have time to do that. For now I can just have fun creating. I am thankful for the crop for giving me that jump start that I needed. I plan to have this project done and ordered long before our next crop.
I invite you to crop with us in January 2015. As a matter of fact. We have crops every week. Monday’s Crop is a challenge, Tuesday’s Crop is a Tip, Thursday’s Crop is a Video. Inbetween all of that, we crop using featured Blueprints and Pixie Dust. How cool is that?
