When I saw the My Mind's Eye Fine and Dandy collection, I had to have it all!! This is my first layout created with the Tickled Pink line. I think I love this line so much because of the amazing, bright colors. It makes me forget that we're smack dab in the middle of winter! :) TFL!

Surviving Snow Week 2011

How to survive being stuck in the house for a week? Crafting, of course! Here is my latest creation. You can tell I was completely crazy because I actually brought out my sewing machine and also hand-stitched my paper!! I created this layout for the weekly challenge at For the Luv of Art. The challenge was to use packaging in the layout; I used my all-time favorite, Prima! TFL!

Let it Snow! (I don't think so!)

Has this been a crazy winter already or what?! I had a feeling when we had a snowfall in November that we may be in store for a winter to remember and my hunch was correct! Our kids have missed a whole week of school due to the latest snow storm. On the bright side, we've been able to stay up late, sleep in and I've been able to do some crafting (always a good thing!)

Today, on the Core'dinations blog, a card I made is being showcased (Thanks, Ellen!)
I will admit, I made this card before our latest blizzard; I'm not feeling the love for the sentiment anymore. I am, however, excited and honored to be on the blog because I LOVE Coredinations!! You should hop over to their blog, it's filled with inspiration and creativity. TFL!

Happy New Year!

Every year I make calendars to give to the grandparents and I also make one for us to keep. It's so fun (and bittersweet) to go through the calendars and see the changes in the children and to remember special moments captured throughout the year.

I just wanted to share our 2011 calendar. May your 2011 be filled with peace and happiness, Happy New Year!
