Before we get to today's download, I just wanted to let you know that I won't be participating in the December Scrap Twist Blog Train.
In case you didn't know, the December theme is "Christmas Around The World", and the designers were to make their kits specific to their part of the world. As I would have been the only designer who experiences Christmas in summer, rather than winter, I felt that I would have had to make a large, comprehensive bundle to portray a completely different holiday season to everyone else.
I freely admid that I am a perfectionist, and I found that I was feeling immense pressure to do something I could be happy about sharing with you. I have been suffering from depression and anxiety for many years now, and worrying about the December blog train was affecting my health. I felt so guilty about letting the other designers (and you!) down, but was reassured by the other admins that it would be perfectly OK to skip a month.
So that is exactly what I'm doing, and it has been such a relief, healthwise. But I haven't been idle - I have been working on a baby bundle, and also a series of very basic tutorials for complete beginners to digital scrapbook design - I hope to share both of these projects with you soon.
We have had some extremely talented designers join us recently, and you definitely won't miss not having a blog train contribution from me!
Thanks for reading this, and (hopefully) understanding why I won't be a part of the December train.
