Happy New Year!

Well, it's been a long time!  "Busy" doesn't not even begin to describe how my life has been.  I kept my classes going, made cards and lo and behold, became the floral designer at the Michaels near my home.  Something had to be put on hold, so it was my blog.  But, now things should begin to stabilize and I will be getting back to my blog.  Now I just have to find time to take down my Christmas Decorations.  hehehe...

More events that have occurred while I was away from my blog our the preparation is beginning for the new Spring Close To My Heart Idea Book.  Some of our favor products will be going away come the end of January like colored Waxy Flax...I will get a list posted of some of our favorites.  I have seen the new Idea Book and have placed my order.  There are some really fun stamp sets coming soon!

I am also continuing with my Design Team work over at Crafting By Designs.  It is a wonderfully friendly site dedicated to furthering our paper crafting skills and crafting new friendships.  I was in charge of posting this week's Copic Challenge.  I called it "Flower Power."  The challenge is to make cards with flowers...let's hide those Holiday stamps for about a month  :o).  I have 2 cards made with the same stamp to show how the use of color effects the look of your project.

Crafting By Designs is a great site and if you are interested in joining email me.  I will get you an invite!

Well, it's 2012...Time to break out of our slumps and do some crafting for ourselves!  BTW - if you are visiting for the STOM blog hop, I'm not sure what happened...long story but please enjoy my blog and welcome.  For Now, Happy Crafting!
