Halloween Flair Buttons (and an update)

Hallo, is there anybody in here? Wow. It's been so long since I last visited my blog that I actually forgot the url (and typed, which is not exactly me. For a second I though someone hijacked my blog. hi hi). So what happened? Life happened. Both the good life but also the bad life.  My Buddhist mind does not like to talk about fighting and struggles, but rather to talk about challenges. It's no secret that my health has been a challenge for many many years, but this year it developed into a struggle. I will not dwell on the details, but just mention that I have been forces to make brave decisions towards a better, brighter future. I need to get to the other side before revealing my plans, but I firmly believe my life and health will be better in the future.

This year I went from creating over a 100 yearly layouts, to lets just say way fewer than that! I've been so stressed that for the first time ever my creative mind just stopped working. Actually, everything stop working, it feels like. I have not been able to sit down and enjoy the process of scrapbooking for a long time. I have forces myself to do so because of my Design Team obligations, and was in the process reminded how much I miss creating beautiful stuff.

I found out that designing at the computer was a creative outlet I could actually manage. I could just turn off the computer and the room would not be a mess like with scrapbooking (well, it is a mess, but that's because I don't have the time nor energy to tidy my space. But that's a different story! I have been able to spend 10 minutes here and there, and the result has been more flair buttons and stamps. But still no scrapbooking and definitely no blogging. Instagram has been my friend, though. Love that App and it's ability to connect me to wonderful people all over the world. And I love the instant feedback. I've needed that, since my blog doesn't get many comments. Comments motivate, but it's just so much easier with Instagram and Facebook. So that's why I started a Facebook page. Not to add another media to update, but to have a media where I would actually be active and connect with people.

I'd be happy if you'd like Brandt-Lassen Design on Facebook or follow me on Instagram @brandtlassen, as I am more likely to actually show signs of life over there.

So without further ado, I'll introduce my new Halloween flair buttons (the Christmas release will be in a separate post), so this post actualy contain pictures! It is October after all, and being a big fan of everything that was to do with decorations and dressing up, I couldn't pass up the chance of creating a little something for this spooky event.
