Hello my friends and family!
As you have probably noticed, I have been away from my blog and my digital scrapbooking for quite a while. Back in March, I was given the opportunity to join a study group at work to prepare myself for an exam that a person is required to take to in order to obtain their CHDS (Certified Healthcare Documentation Specialist) certificate. Thankfully, all that hard work paid off and I passed my exam on July 10! YAY!
It was truly not an easy task! I really thought I was only going to have to put in a couple hours each day of studying but that wasn’t the case at all. I spent any free time I had studying, and I am not exaggerating on that at all. The studies were very intense but that made the end result all that much more special. There are many changes going on in my career as a Healthcare Documentation Specialist, so it was very important for me to obtain my credentials. I truly love what I do and will do anything to further myself in my career.
There was a lot of prayer going on during this time and it got me thinking that when I get back into digital scrapbooking, I would really like to use that platform to do some faith journaling. There are so many great bible passages out there and what a great way to reflect on them and express how they relate to my, and maybe even your, life.
I did my first page yesterday utilizing Jeremiah 29:11. With all I have gone through so far in my career, especially going through two layoffs, this passage really helps to put things into perspective.
I am also trying to dabble into some designing for digital scrapbooking, and I used a kit that I am currently working on for this layout. After I have created a few kits, I am hoping to open up a store in Etsy. I am having so much fun with designing. It is a great way to release yourself from everyday tasks.
Like I said above, I passed my exam on July 10 and then my family and I went on a much needed vacation to Boston. Once I got back, I started scrapbooking again for all the wonderful teams that I am on for some amazing designers. I will be sharing some of those creations soon in future posts.
I have missed scrapbooking, designing, and blogging so much and am so happy to be back!!
I hope you all have a wonderful day/week! I had to work this weekend so I am off today! Woot woot!!!
