DBTL: Military Support Awareness (My First Blog Train!)

Of all the blog trains that are released every month (or bi-monthly) (or quarterly) (or annually), THE one that I actively go looking for each month is the Digi Blog Train List's "Awareness" series.

So when I decided to try my hand at something creative, it was easy for me to decide which train I wanted to join...if they would have me. In addition, I noticed that while the many designers in this group are both amazingly talented and generous with what they offer for free, there doesn't seem to be a lot of wordy bits included, so this is something that I could do.

And, wouldn't you know it...the very month that I decide to ask if they could use my contributions, I find out that the theme for the month is one that I suggested roughly a year ago! So this just tells me that this is meant to be and the timing is right.

So here we are: My first-ever blog train offering.

This month's topic, "Military Support Awareness," is one that's dear to my heart. I'm not a military spouse personally, but I've known many amazing men and women who have served - and I've known some of the families who keep the home fires burning while they're away. I've also known some families who have lost their loved ones - if not in battle, then in the battle once they are back home, either to depression or to alcholism/drug abuse or to cancer caused by chemicals they were exposed to while deployed.

So with the US's Independence Day just behind us, it's not too late to contact someone you know who is active in the military...or who is retired from it...or who is missing someone who is deployed...and let them know you appreciate their efforts.

Here is my contribution for this month's blog train. I hope you'll be able to use some of these when you scrap to honor our military men and women and their families:

Welcome to DigiJen's world!

My name is Jenni, but in the digiscrap world, you'll more likely see me as DigiJen. I've found it's a nice way to keep separate my digiscrap life and my normal life. (Which is a nice way of saying it keeps my non-scrappy friends from yelling at me because I post so much scrappy stuff.) 😉

Normally you'll see me posting ads around Facebook for other designers. I've figured out that I have a special skill set - I can write, and I don't mind spending time posting ads. This works well with artistic types who prefer to spend their time creating more digiscrap kits and would rather not spend time so much with the "business" end of a scrap design business. So we team up, and everyone is happy.

Although I'm taking a hiatus for the month of July, you'll normally find me extolling the delights of kits by these very talented designers:

BoomersGirl Designs 

 Dagi's Temp-tations (templates)  

LissyKey Designs (templates)  

MDD Designs (templates)  

SOOOO....if you want to subscribe to this blog, you'll be able to keep up on the latest from a whole group of designers with very different styles.

There's another reason I've started this blog...but you'll have to wait about 11 more days to find out what that is.🐈
