Farewell, 2011

Greetings!
I hope that everyone had a wonderful Christmas...we certainly did.  I finished putting up the last of the holiday wares this morning...the house looks sooo bare. It's nice to have everything organized once again, although I still have a couple of closets to tackle...I see some major destashing in my future :)

MY SCRAPBOOK NOOK
January is my design month at My Scrapbook Nook.  I adore the "Head Over Heals" kit by Lily Bee...the colors are right up my alley.  Have you seen it?

The kit includes sweet chipboard pieces from Maya Road, adorable layered flowers by Petaloo, ribbon and Thickers.  In addition to the Lily Bee patterned papers, the cardstock stickers and file journal tags are also included. Can't wait to share the cards that I've all ready created with this fabulous kit...get yours today before they're g.o.n.e.

I HEART IPPITY
I'm delighted to announce that I've been invited to stay on with the I Heart {Ippity} Creative Team for the foreseeable future :)  Some revamping to the weekly blog is in store...maybe a blog hop or two and each of the designers will have their own day of the week to feature their artwork...mine will be Thursdays! 
Here is my latest IHI project
You may purchase Ippity (Unity) Stamps from Heather...just check out her blog via the link above.

MISS ARTS PAPERCRAFTING SCHOOL
I've been working on and off on my class project that's upcoming with Miss Arts in February.  I'll keep you posted as to when the class is up and available for sign-ups :)  I'm excited (and nervous)!

IMAGINISCE
Just waiting (anxiously) on the arrival of my Imaginisce Design Team box of goodies.  I simply cannot wait to dig in and get started on my projects.  Since the DT announcement, we've all been chatting and getting acquainted.  Truly, this lot of ladies have been extremely welcoming and kin to long lost friends...I look forward to creating 2012 with them!

That's pretty much the low-down from my neck of the woods.  We have one more Christmas celebration tomorrow with Mark's family, Tyler will turn 18 on Thursday and we'll have his party on Friday night...steakhouse, a movie and exchanging presents.  New Year's Eve?  Oh, I'll possibly be welcoming in the first baby of 2012...hoping for an uneventful night LOL

HAPPY NEW YEAR'S WISHES TO ALL

♥A little about me♥  I'm currently designing for Doodlebug Design and Scrapbook Adhesives and have had the honor of serving on 20+ manufacturers or retailer  design teams over the years!  When I'm not working as a school administrative assistant, you can almost  always find me crafting cuteness for my Etsy Shop: Dot & Whimsy :) Aside from paper-crafting, I also enjoy making jewelry, cross-stitch, embroidery,  home decorating, reading and watching reality TV. But enough about little 'ole me...let's get on to the give-a-way!
With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I set out to find the perfect curation  of all things "red" and "love" in my stash.  The end result is this sweet ♥LOV…

A SN@P December Daily

**For the UNITY BLOG HOP, click --HERE--**

Oh, December Daily, how do I love thee! Isn't this just the greatest idea, ever?  (scrapbooking wise, anyway) Welcome to my contribution to the  SIMPLE STORIES  DECEMBER DAILY BLOG HOP I'm so glad that you're joining us...I can't wait to hop around myself and see how the girls have decorated their SN@P Albums December Daily style :)
**You should be arriving here from Rebecca Keppel's Blog**
I have quite a few photos to share, so I'll leave most of them in a  smaller size.  Just click on each one to enlarge.
My vision for the album was to mix 'n match  Handmade Holiday, SN@P and Year.O.Graphy I wanted bright colors mixed in with more shabby-distressed look that Simple Stories is known for.    For the cover, I took a bright Turquoise Dot SN@P paper and a strip from Year.O.Graphy and stitched them together.  The title is a compilation of  sevearl SN@P sticker elements.
