Spring is my very favourite time of the year. The blossoms are sprouting, the birds are singing, the days are getting warmer - it's just such a pleasant time...it makes you feel good to be alive!
This year, to mark the arrival of Spring, I've decided to take a course and learn something new! I've just discovered Shimelle Laine. Well, not really discovered, as I'd heard her name when I was a paper scrapper. But recently I've discovered some of the online classes she has, and I'm hooked.
Learn Something New Everyday is the course I've signed up for. The class encourages you to take each day as it comes and find at least one thing in every day that can teach you something. Something big, something small, something funny, something solemn. Some days you might learn a random fact and others might teach you something about patience, determination or reflection. Every day is a new opportunity, and we track it all through things we love: some photographs, a bit of writing and as much pretty paper as we fancy.
Doesn't it sound fun! So that's my focus for September. I'm going to learn something new everyday, and I plan on posting here to keep track of things.
And for something completely different, I've decided to start designing! I'm going to call myself Digi.Girl.Designs by Di Basnett. As I start out and learn lots about designing, I'm going to rely on you guys to be my guinea pigs. I'll be posting lots of freebies here on the blog, and I'd love for you to download and try out my products. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
So here is my first freebie. I've created an acrylic alpha. You can download here, or just click the image. Enjoy!
