I've had so much on my mind! Cookies are all over my house as seen in this photo ;)

I am sharing some cards I did.... on a creative roll again... great for card making.. not so great for a sleepy eyed, yawning all day momma...

wow.. where did the week go?

I can't believe its already been another week... time is just moving too fast for me..
Im finally able to share my design team work for Right at Home...
YOu can see everyones creations in the gallery here: go to gallery and design team creations...
Here are mine..

I got to play with some Basic Grey Wassail... I didnt' have it for holidays and am just not motivated to create any more holiday projects so I did a few different themes using it... its a great rich looking line....

Also, I played with Fancy Pants Arctic Chill.... This line is very pretty... again... subtle distressing, rich tones... very pretty !!

My pictures are always so vibrant with color, I turned em bl/wht so they wouldnt' scream against these pretty papers!
be back soon... I promise with some love theme things... my studio is full of red/white/pink and glitter I love it!

Sinus infections

are hitting us this weekend... and we got like 6-8 inches more of fluffy white snow... so I stayed in, rested, got caught up with emails, etc...

Sharing some of my new stuff... a card and a layout based on sketches we are promoting here
Come join us... there is a gallery, forum and challenges... so so fun

Here is the January sketch based on a page map sketch and a card based on a sketch from one of our design team members...

Happy weekend... have a safe and restful Martin Luther King holiday... be back soon with my first round of design team projects for Right at Home!

my studio is clean... .I still have so much stuff its not even funny... I really need to get some fresh items into my ETSY store... I have my initial "unsolds" coming off in a few days... they are mainly fall/winter type goods so the timing is perfect!

I have been busy creating some layouts and cards using Basic GRey Wassail and Fancy Pants Arctic Chill... those will be in the right at home gallery this weekend hopefully (so I can't share them here)

I did find some stuff I forgot to share just because I really need to post something creative

why is it?????

Taking me so darn long so far this month to get with the program....??? I just can't make a layout to save my life....

I should be getting some new "stuff" for design team assignments and I have the pictures already pulled, ideas sketched etc for that but I can't seem to do any "just because layouts" hmmmm??? what is going on?

On the home front, I am busy nesting, cleaning, purging, organizing etc... going through cupboard by cupboard and seeing what I own, and trying and using up my stuff... we have just collected way too much stuff....

In the meantime... how bout some pics from the holidays since I have nothing creative to share!
3.Erin had fun with her cousin Sydney..... 2.Jon grew out a goatee and stache from his "unemployment" status... (thankfully now is clean shaven!) Erin decided she wanted to look like daddy! lol 1. The cousins group picture... Erin had a bit of attitude by the time this was taken... ahhhhh girls! ;)

Peace and I will be back soon!
