Welcome Spring!

Still waiting for it to feel like it here in Minnesota. I've been trying to make it happy and springy inside while we wait for mother nature to catch up. I also caught the spring cleaning bug. I have been picking up and actually cleaning things like a fiend. I normally don't have tidy bone in my body, so when the urge strikes, I roll with it. It's feeling much more fresh and airy around here.

I am feeling really inspired lately. I am getting antsy for the new Freestyle book by Autumn Leaves to come out. I have it pre-ordered and heard from the lovely Danielle that it ships next week. I can't wait! It looks so funky and freeing:)

In other exciting news, the CK Hall of Fame winners were announced! I'm so excited that someone at 2pea posted links to all of their work here. Check it out!! The art is truly fantastic! I was blown away by Vicki Boutin's work and am seriously considering subscribing to Scraptiv!ty now. Check out the amazing layouts she did with their kits. She's on their design team. Fun stuff! Has anyone ever done a scrapbooking subscription kit? I'd love to hear what you thought of it. Is it worth it? One thing I like about Scraptiv!ty is you get their neat gel stamps with each months kit. I'm not a stamper, so it would be fun to try some that coordinate with the papers you receive. You know how Minnesotan's are about hometown talent. We go nuts! So I was thrilled to see some local HOFers. Nisa Fiin and Jessica too, who just moved away:( Check out this amazing album of Nisa's. Love the colors!

What a lovely view out your window. I'm the same way about tidying. If I have even the slightest hint of motivation to tidy up, I GO with it!
Am so looking forward to the Freestyle book, also Designing with Digital.
LOVE Vicki Boutin's work.
