January 2010

Dear Blog Guest,

Happy New Year! I hope you had a great holiday season! I enjoyed some time with my family and friends. We didn't do anything spectacular over New Year's - just played Monopoly with the boys (and lost). While I always enjoy the festivities, I'm glad the hustle and bustle are over and we can settle back into a somewhat "normal" routine. Although, I'm not quite sure what normal is anymore.

With the New Year, comes a new Spring Idea Book! The Spring 2010 Idea Book is filled with new and fun products for your stamping and scrapbooking pleasure. My 2009 Hostesses will be getting their copy in the mail this weekend. If you're attending a scheduled class or home gathering this month, you'll also get a copy. If you're not going to see me this month, you can still get your copy - just email me.

Of course, we get a new Stamp of the Month as well, True Friends. With a nice selection of labels and sentiments, it's sure to help you celebrate your friendships.

The National Papercrafting Month Campaign runs through the end of this month as well. There is also an exciting contest this month. Check out the National Papercrafting Blog, leave a comment each day for your chance to win a FREE Felicity Collection! It couldn't be easier!

I've got my class/workshop schedule posted for January and February on my calendar. If you cannot attend one of my scheduled workshops, you are always welcome to schedule your own workshop on one of my open dates and I will come to you.

Wishing you a fabulous 2010!
