This brings me to my desire to learn graphic design, web design, and about digital scrapbooking! I've always had a hankering for animation and my internet addiction makes it an almost obvious segue. Sigh, when I get the rest of my education and finances in order, I'll def pick up a few classes. There's only so much I can teach myself, I do a bit better with guidance. However! Digi Scrapping (I may or may not have just made up that slang term, lol) is something I think I can definitely pick up myself! It seems a bit more tangible in terms of being within my current means to pursue. I've added a lot blogs that touch upon it that you can check out too! Those people seem so cheerful, it's a nice pick me up to read and look at what they've created.
That blurb leads me to the fact this March is National Craft Month! Yes, I realize that the month of March is almost over but this enthusiasm still counts, confound it! Teehee. I can't say much about it since I haven't partaken in any yummy sales, yet. /devious grin. Oh, I will. I so will. Soon. I hope. Lol.
But that made me wonder what else the month of March means for people. Well, I went and found out! Here are some things, according to Wikipedia, Bizarre American Holidays, & Brownielocks and The 3 Bears.
The Month of March is also known as:
National Nutrition Month
Foot Health Month

They even get into weekly observances! Here are some:

- Week 2: Iditarod Race, Celebrate Your Name Week, Telecommuter Appreciation Week, Nat'l Pet Sitters Week, and Nat'l Sleep Awareness Week.
- Week 3: Nat'l Poison Prevention Week and Act Happy Week

Some of my favorite, lesser known holidays listed were:
March 1st = Beer Day. Pig Day. Peanut Butter Lover Day.
March 3rd= National Anthem Day.
March 6th = National Frozen Food Day.
March 8th= Be Nasty Day.
March 9th= Panic Day.
March 13th= K-9 Veterans Day.
March 14th= Pi Day.
March 18th= Awkward Moments Day.
March 23rd= Nat'l Puppy Day.
March 24th= Kick Butts Day. Nat'l Chocolate Covered Raisins Day.
March 31st= Bunsen Burner Day.
That is kind of awesome and bizarre at the same time. I think we need more days and months. Or less things to worship. I mean that in the nicest way possible. I love junk. Lol. /cower. Don't hurt me overstuffed closet!
The tutorial I wanted to make will be post tomorrow! Yay! See you then!
