One Little Word Blog Hop

My apologies -for the second month in a row I've not completed the month's prompt.  However, I didn't want to drop out of the Blog Hop two months in a row so I thought I would at least write a blog post about where I ran into trouble and my current progress. 
July's prompt really threw me for a loop.  We were asked to choose 9 songs that were meaningful right now..  Well, I love music, almost all kinds, but I can not tell you the name of a song to save my life!  Or who sings it.  Definitely not a candidate for that show Name That Tune!  I know other people did a variety of things but nothing came to me - my mind was a blank!  I did a search on my word 'Illuminate' to see what I found and the songs that came up were unfamilar to me.  Between dealing with a medical problem since January and working on Finding Photo Freedom I just didn't have it in me to do the prompt.
So along comes the August prompt and I'm thinking this is easy.  I can get this done this month.  Still had no idea what to do for July.  However, in August I'm finishing Finding Photo Freedom, starting MotherLOAD and preparing for surgery in early September! 
So, here is where things stand....the Finding Photo Freedom class is done and I can work on the remaining items a little bit at a time.   The marathon part of MotherLOAD  begins today, Sept. 1st but I already know that I won't be able to complete a layout every day of Sept. because of the surgery so I'll do as many as I can and not worry about the rest.  Whatever I complete is more than if I hadn't taken the class!  As for  One Little Word my plan is to complete both July & August as time allows.  I have an idea (FINALLY!) of what I want to do for July.  I'm going in a different direction than Ali but I think it will be fun and it still involves music.  And August won't take long to do its just deciding my take on it and what direction I want to go.  I want to take time with the process and have it be meaningful rather than just rushing through it to get it done. 
Thanks for reading through to the end. 
One other thing that I almost forgot to include.  In July & August I was also involved in the Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap and Blog Hop and the Big Idea Festival over at BPC one weekend in August.  If you're interested you can click on the links to the right for the Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap blog hop.  It officially was held this past weekend but the links still work.  The Liberate Your Art Postcard Swap will be held again in early 2012 so check out my blog post9the one before this) if you think you might want to particpate.

  1. kudos for hanging in there with everything on your plate! I was also in FPF, the BIF, and currently in Mother Load. Time to stop reading blogs and go create a layout!

  2. Wow, you've been busy. Take your time and do what brings you joy. I've been behind, too, but I still find the prompts at least have me thinking of my word.
