Hope you're year is off to a great start! I have some exciting news that came to me in the first days of 2011. I hope that his is an indication of how wonderful a year this is going to be! We all know and love the fabulous Jenny and Aaron and their amazing sweet creations known as Everyday is a Holiday. Now they have put together a design team to play with their inspiration kits and come up with whatever projects our hearts desire with their wonderful artwork as the medium. How fun is that!?! Oh yea, and I'm on the team! I'm thrilled and it's just the spring in my step that I need on these cold, snowy January days in Minnesota. Other than that, things have been kind of slow around here, easing into the new year. I tend to get very introspective this time of year and have enjoyed taking a break to read this wonderful book, which is all about having and being enough. I have been embracing this by taking some time to play with the dog, set up the kids new toys and generally taking it easy. I found this cute vintage wooden house at an estate sale and it displays Chloe's new collection of Littlest Pet shop critters perfectly. I'm also taking two different Big Picture Scrapbooking classes from Ali Edwards. One is about getting down your stories from yesterday and today, which is the name of the class. The other is finding your one little word for the year and working with it throughout the entire year. My word for this year is Explore. I'll be sharing more about this as the year goes on.
