Bursting With Creative Inspiration!

Today is a perfect day to stay home.  The wind is blowin'...up to 50 mph winds...snow is flying and it is about 12 degrees out.  Yes...the PERFECT day to stay home.  Andrew has his friend Abby over for the afternoon and they just finished up lunch.  They have played Wii, they have had a Nerf sword fight and now they are sitting upstairs getting their reading homework done.  After that they will make some "break & bake" cookies.  My roast is in the oven...Curti is napping on the couch...Jake is chewing on his ball...I am toasty wrapped up in my Snuggie.  Life doesn't get any better!

Yesterday I had the opportunity to spend the day with some of my favorite "scrappy friends" at NESC.  It was me, Michelle, Monique, Debbie & Vanna and we had a blast!  So much fun laughing & scrapping.

It was the perfect opportunity to get caught on some much needed Scrap Can Do! work.  We recently purchased a very cute paper line from Pink Paislee and we had the cutest "stamp" album from Maya Road.  We will introduce the album on our blog on Monday but I thought I would share a lil' "sneak peak" with you:

I call it "Love Notes" and I was very pleased how well it came together.  Some of the ladies who were at the store who saw me work on just loved it...that makes me happy.  Vanna took the pictures today and the instructions are complete.  I can't wait for the "formal" release!

Later today I think I'll work on another mini album...maybe the Maya Road tree album I have an idea for.  Or maybe the baby album I started.  Or the purse.  Or...

Goodness...I have a lot to do!  Enjoy your day...and stay warm!

Hello, NE Bloggers!
Our 1-year anniversary is coming up on Jan 27. To mark the occasion I am going to put up a Mr. Linky on the evening of Monday, January 25. If you'd like to write a post about living in NE, fav places to visit, funny stories and stereotypes, recipes, photos of our gorgeous landscape, anything, it would be great if you would link in. I'd also like a little idea of # of participants, if you could just send me a reply.
Since I don't have emails from everyone, I'm also leaving this message in your comments, sorry for the double-up.
