#30DaysofHome | 30 Days of Home a FREE photo challenge with Little Paper Projects

I have a strange relationship with time lately. With a not-so-new baby (she’s nearly 3 months) occupying most of my time, I find my days going both SO SLOW and SO FAST – all at the same time.

The slowness comes with having a baby. So much is happening in their teeny little bodies, that their relationship with time is on a different scale than ours. They need time. They need care. They need cautious, slow, deliberate moments. They need snuggles. They need naps. All while they double over in size and growth every few months. It’s truly TRULY amazing. But slow.

And yet, my days are flying by. On the rare moments where I find myself without something to do – like dishes, cleaning, laundry (all of which are MOST of what I do), it’s rare that I make it through a full activity before I’m called back by my tiny tyrant, demanding food, love, snuggles.

And then it’s dark. And then it’s bedtime. And then I’m rushing to get one creative project DONE before it’s time for me to get to sleep.

And, just like that, the day repeats. A slightly different version of the same thing – every day.

So I’ve been away from blogging for what feels like a moment, but is actually months. Though I have continued to share tiny tidbits of what’s happening around here on Instagram and on my personal blog, I’m really looking forward to coming back into a space where I can write and share and be in a place.

So moving forward, you’ll find all of my personal posts, the catch-up stuff, the life stuff, the baby stuff, on my personal blog. And you’ll find all of scrappy projects, my paper-loving nerd-iness, my newest favorite apps, and the awesome industry things that only a lover of all things paper and scrap can truly appreciate – here on LPP.

I promise you – there is a lot to come.

Because of this other little thing …

(That’s me in the bottom-middle. Looking up and sideways like “WHAT?! IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING??)

And it is.

What I love most about Ali is her commitment to story. To simplified products and classes that make telling stories the focus of your work.

And here at LPP, that’s what we specialize in. YOUR story. The best parts. The hard parts. The in-between parts.

And this year, I have a lot of story to tell.

Working with Ali this coming year, I know I’ll be able to offer even more here in this space. There is a lot coming, friends. And I’m happy to say, it’s coming soon.

This year, you’ll see:

  • Digital Products
  • Our favorite classes
  • Story telling opportunities every month
  • All of my favorite Ali projects: Day in the Life, Week in the Life, One Little Word, December Daily
  • More in-progress posts (because there is always something in progress).
  • And whatever else I need, in a moment, and make for myself. Because sharing is caring, friend, and that’s what I want to do in this space.

So join me this month, and this coming year, as I create and share little vignettes of memory keeping and products that make it easier all right here.
