    Happy New Year Lain ~ so great to kick it off with the first podcast of 2012!
    On New Year’s Day I brainstormed a list of things that I would like to do this year. I’m calling it my “dreams” list. I’ve got a milestone birthday coming up in July and thought about what might make this year a little more special than usual. The items on my list range from the practical to the frivolous, the adventurous to the routine; they are all things that I thought would be fun or different. And I’m cutting myself some slack on getting them all done ~ I’m not going to stress if I can’t do a couple of them for whatever the reason.
    On the scrapbooking side, I’ve signed up for Ali’s One Little Word (“faith”), Stacy Julian’s Twelve and will be working on my 4th year of Project Life (I’ve got a pretty relaxed approach to that one too). Of course I’m really looking forward to February’s LOAD as well.
    I think 2012 is going to be a great year!

    First of all, Happy New Year! Here’s to a great 2012.
    Secondly is a question I have been meaning to ask for months now: Is it just me, or does the intro to the podcast (Here Comes the Sun) drag in a couple of spots? I have been hearing this every week, and it’s driving me crazy not knowing if it’s imagined or real. I know, pretty stupid, but it’s bugging me!

    Hmmm… I haven’t noticed that! I have copied the file directly so I haven’t done anything… But I’ll check. :)

  • Sassynagle

    yeah…it does sound distorted in a just a few spots.  No big deal, though :)

  • Joanie

    I’m just happy to know that I’m not imagining things.  I’m sure it’s a digital recording, so how can it be distorted?

    That’s the part I don’t understand – hmmmm… mysterious! ;)

    Happy 2012! I’ve got a couple of goals for this year, the biggest one is to get organized! Gotta purge my house and get myself together. I’m hoping to scrap more and let my insecurities go, gotta quit comparing myself to others(scrapping-wise) keep up with my project life, this’ll be my first one. And learn how to use my camera and learn how to scrap digitally.

    Well, I hope you’re checking out the series by Melissa Shanhun that started today on the blog! She’s got some great Photoshop Elements tips for beginners. :) Happy new year!

  • Sassynagle

    Not sure, but distorted is the only way I could describe it.

    My gosh, you guys are a tough audience! How was the episode OTHER than that? ;)

  • Joanie

    Oh, Lain, as always, your podcast is entertaining and informative.  I listen to it every week and ALWAYS enjoy it!  :)

    Melinda – I’d love to hear what you think about the digital scrapbooking series – here’s hoping you’ll feel confident to jump in and scrap with what you learn there :)

  • Sassynagle

    Lain…you know I am your #1 fan:)  It truly is fine and the podcast, as always, was filled with inspiration, motivation and fun.  I look forward to it every Wed. with my AM coffee!  xoxoxox

    Whew! I was worried all that people heard was the distorted music. I always welcome constructive criticism, but compliments help my poor little needy ego too. LOL!
