Well hello there and thank you for visiting my site and stopping by from Vivayne from Art Life and the Journey. If this is your first time here, let me introduce myself. My name is Beth, and I am addicted to scrapbooking and documenting my family’s life. I have been a scrapbooker for over 10 years now. I am also a huge tech fan so I have married the two and started this site where I share with you tips and tricks on how to get photos off of your phones and into an album in no time at all.
This year brought many changes to my life specifically a new baby and becoming a stay at home mommy. After giving birth and adapting to being the mommy of an infant all over again I was able to get back on track with my business and life in general. Before I knew it I was right back in the saddle but I felt I was missing something.
Then came along a wonderful class on Creative Live by April Bowles, all about how to Build A Successful Creative Blog. This specific class was absolutely amazing and life changing for my business. I felt a renewed energy and realized that I do not have to be so hard on myself in order to create my online business. I have goals to meet this year and I am determined to meet these goals. The best way for me to do this is to create habits and this was the biggest take away that I got from the class. Don’t get me wrong I received a ton of good information from this course but the one that resonated the most with me was creating habits.
I can create habits to get my work done, I can get up earlier and get my blog posts done or get crafty so that I can share my layouts with you or whatever crafty goodness I am working on at the moment. I realized that I was doing to many things at once and multi-tasking was not the best thing for me to do when I am creating for my business. With that being said no more multi-tasking for me as I have goals to meet and a business to grow.
I also decided to become an independent consultant with Close To My Heart, after watching April’s class. I did this because I do have a goal with my business which is to share with you how to get the photos off your phones but what products can I use to get this done quickly and easily. Close To My Heart was the answer for me now that I have embraced pocket scrapping (aka project life). Close To My Heart has some of the best pocket scrapping products on the market right now and their pocket cards are gorgeous to say the least.
After taking April’s class I have realized the importance of staying focused and taking some time for myself to work on my business. It is also important for me to unplug and take some time for myself and for my family. Balance is the key for me and for my family so that I can be happy. I will be taking everything one step at a time and taking the time I need to cultivate a wonderful life.
After all that, I wanted to share with you this great little screen saver that I made for myself with the Rhonna Designs app. I did this because I always have my phone in hand and what better place to always be reminded of my goals. I believe that inspiration/goal boards help you to achieve your goals in life.
Do you believe that inspiration boards help you reach your goals? Let us know in the comments.
