I'm quite a bit behind in creating this blog. It's been in my head for years and finally making it onto the internet. I just wanted my blog to feel like the missing link in sharing the things I am interested in. I mean, really, my family can only praise me so much. I hope that this will become an interactive forum where we can all share ideas, projects, techniques, and pages. I hope to inspire and be inspired. PaperNana came about because my g-babies call me Nana and I love paper of all kinds, therefore I combined the best of both worlds. Welcome to PaperNana Creations!


I have been welcomed to the Land of Digi

So, I realized that I NEVER posted my April writing...duh. Guess I am still falling short in my blogging attempts. Perhaps if I post when I have new creations or inspirational things to share, or find some incredible people to promote...that may get me going. I HAVE done better in my own personal journal writing. I'm not perfect or even consistent, but I have made progress. I heard about an app on a podcast, I think it was The Paperclipping Roundtable, where they were talking about journaling and making time to make notes and record your own life story. Izzy and Noell happen to be Mac lovers also. I use this app on my MacBook Pro laptop--it's called the Day One Journal. It does cost $9.99, but I was willing to pay that for daily reminders, password protection, dropbox enabled sourcing, etc. (I'm sure there are comparable apps for Android/Windows users.) Even Cathy Zielske uses it in conjunction with her Project Life goals! Anything Cathy uses has got to be awesome, right! Speaking of PL, I have invested in both the physical and digital paper protectors and plan to get some life recording done. If you have not heard of Project Life or want more information, go to Becky Higgins' site.

My biggest news is that I have been embraced by some very talented designers at Design House Digital who have given me the opportunity to be on their Creative Teams. First is Gennifer Bursett, who was one of the first people I communicated with at DHD. She is downright silly, committed, creative, knows how to juggle 50 things at once--you could spell her name as FUN! She recognized my talent and designing ability, encouraged me in contests, and made me feel very welcome. I pretty much just begged her to be on her Creative Team; she indulged my request, and that began my path to CT designing. The next person I met was Erica Coombs while at a DHD Digi Scrap Retreat. She is so sweet, talented, and easy going. After being around her, I recognized that I could learn a lot from her, and once again, asked if she had any CT openings. Graciously, she accepted me. Wahoo! The most recent designer is a newer one to DHD, Julianna Kneipp, who lives in Brazil. When I first saw her designs after she opened her store, my heart skipped a beat! Ju has a nostalgic, vintage style which resonates with me. I created a page, and sent her a submission. Apparently she liked my style, too. I feel very blessed to be associated with these talented ladies and the whole Design House Digital community! Here are some of the pages I've created as a CT member:

Thanks for looking. Once again, I will try to blog better.
