keeping up with the dts

People have been asking me, “How in the heck do you keep up with all of your design teams?!” Well, I’ll let everyone in on my little secret, but make sure not to tell anyone. πŸ˜‰ Just kidding!

…so the secret is — I use the good ol’ calendar. Google Calendar to be exact. I make sure to add all projects due, blog post write ups, and anything else I need to work on to the calendar. I have reminders to keep me on top of things; otherwise, I’d be a complete mess, lol! To make things even easier, I try to work ahead. ((…and like I mentioned before, I’m a FAST scrapper. As in, I scrap a layout in about 30 minutes or less.))

Anyway, with that in mind, I’ve got more good news to share. I made it onto the Urban Swank design team!!! This was another surprise for sure considering there is so much talent out there.

In case you don’t know about Urban Swank, they distribute Urban Lily products. Super cute stuff, people! …and on top of that, they are teamed up with Helmar Adhesives. I love me some adhesives, but then again, what scrapper doesn’t?!

If you’ve got the time, also please check out the rest of the selected Swanky Gurls! They’re amazingly creative. Check ’em out, and leave them some love too! πŸ™‚

    That’s totally awesome Sarah. I use a list to keep up with DT stuff, but I’m wondering if a calendar would work better! Thanks for the idea!
