CMK February Kit Sneak!

Well, it is more than a sneak, how about an actual layout??!

At Create My Keepsake the design team will post 1 layout on the 25th that consists of items from the kit ONLY. Make sure to visit the blogs of all the CMK design team members to see a wide variety of layouts made with the kit. Then, throughout the following month, we will have projects, layouts, and challenges for you the entire month on the CMK blog!

So here is my layout I made with the February kit:

If you haven't ordered this kit yet, you should!!

Pink Paislee 2009 Creative Team!

The announcement for the Pink Paislee 2009 Creative Team was made the other day on their blog. I am thrilled and humbled to say that I am actually returning to this dream team! There is a huge list full of talent, and it will be an exciting year for sure. Some of my all time favorite projects are ones done for Pink Paislee assignments.

I am excited to see what Holly and Rebecca have in store for 2009. There are little sneaks throughout the Pink Paislee blog....just teasers! Looks like there will be some new additions....chipboard letters, brads, flowers, and other goodies!!

Our bathroom is almost finished. I hope to have pictures of it soon. Without Chad working we need to work with what we have here but that is OK :) Hopefully it won't be more than 8-10 weeks before he can return to work. Say a prayer for us!!

Happy New Year!!!

So what did you do to ring in the New Year??! We had a pretty low key night, dinner and cards with friends, just a really relaxing and fun time. Our girls stayed up to watch the ball drop, a first for them.

It is official. We are preparing our house to sell. We have loved living here for the past 8 years but we need something bigger, something we can grow into. The house we found is a 2 story with a basement, which is perfect for us.

Our plans have momentarily been put on hold though due to Chad's job (and lack of work). He got bumped off his position at the railroad this week. It makes me angry because he works SO HARD for them and there are so many guys there with more time that can sit on the board, marking off for the weekends, and call in sick all the time, blah blah blah where Chad has never missed a day in 2 years. But, what can you do? I've got to trust again that God has a plan for us, whether I like it right now or not lol. My only hope is that it will pick up in 2 months or so like it normally does.

I have created some new things for Create My Keepsake but cannot share them yet. I have to say, the CMK January kit is gorgeous, check it out. My favorite one to date.

I plan on taking many more pictures this year than last. And updating my blog as well lol. But these ARE NOT resolutions so let's just keep that straight. I don't ever carry through with resolutions so they have been banned, hehe.

I hope 2009 not only brings happiness for you all, but also with a new President coming on board, I pray that he can get this economy of our's back on track. He certainly has a huge job ahead of him.
