3 Simple Steps to Getting Started
by Jen White

What will you start this new year? What new adventurous road will you travel for the first time?

Whatever it is, here’s a bit of advice from a friend:  3-get-started-img1

“Don’t make things complicated. Just begin.”

In October of last year I made a quilt for each of my three children. It was my first time ever using a sewing machine. My quilts were small and simple. I had a great experience because I didn’t complicate things.

In November of last year I started Bullet Journaling (BuJos unite!). I started the journey with just a pen and a pretty notebook. Trying to measure up to how others journaled would have left me tired and frustrated. But because I kept things simple right from the beginning, I now have energy and vision to take my bullet journaling to the next level.

All that to say… let’s DO this! You are never too old or too young to learn a new skill. Just keep this in mind: Start small. Do what you can do. Then, add on to that.

If digital scrapbooking is one of the roads you are determined to travel this year, we are here to help…right from the beginning. Here’s a simple plan to get you started:

  • Reach out to the digital scrapbooking community. Traveling a new path is SO much easier with a friend. Psst…our forum is friendly!

Blessings to you as you adventure into 2016. You have the power to make it the best year ever!

    I, also, like the Bullet Journaling idea.

    One thought on beginning digital scrapbooking is that I think I would actually recommend starting with Photoshop instead of elements. With the monthly purchase, it is always up to date and Linda also has the Learn Digital Scrapbooking class in Photoshop.

    Thanks for all that you do for us!
