Looking forward to a great new year

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas! Our family was fighting off sickness after sickness, but we had a great holiday despite it all. It started off with sinus infections, then went to the intestinal virus that landed Zachary and myself in the hospital for a day each, then back to sinus and Robby even got Strep! In between illnesses, my parents came to visit and what a great time we had. I had been so busy with a new book, classes at the Scrapbook Pad, and all that I hadn't put up any decorations, but it was a blessing in disguise. Watching my kids and my parents put up the tree was a memory I will never forget! Then we all went to see Christmas lights and had a blast! My kids made out like bandits as usual, and Robby and I didn't do so bad ourselves. I also got to see both of my kids in Christmas performances this year and what a treat that was. Kaylee's turning out to be our little movie star, and Bubba, well, let's just say this may not be his thing - but he sure was cute anyway :)

In between all my things to do, I made time to go to a "Stocking Stuffer workshop" at Joni's house and had such a great time. I got all my teacher gifts done in one afternoon and had a blast doing it! I can't wait for the next one! I made the neatest things and made around 20 or so gifts for only $1 each in 1 afternoon! In fact, I had so much fun that I'm hosting one at my house for Valentine's Day gifts. We'll be making two different gift bags/boxes to fill with treats for your teachers, neighbors, co-workers, etc. and they'll be only $1 each. You'll also be able to look through the Stampin' Up catalogs to see what things you can't live without. It will be a lot of fun and I'd love for you all to join me. It will be at my house on Thursday evening, January 24th. It is a come and go thing from 6pm to 9pm. If you want to make several, plan on being here most of the time and we need RSVP in advance so we know how many kits to put together. If you're interested, call me, e-mail me, or comment here and I'll be sure to get with you with further info.

Well - I'm off to bed. I have a big day planned tomorrow with Amanda. We have a sitter for our kids and we're spending the day at the Scrapbook Pad. I can't wait. Amanda's website is well on its way and I've got to get my stuff ready to go. I'm so looking forward to it. It has been so long since I've been able to spend much time doing my digital stuff and I miss it.

If you have time, leave me a comment and let me know how you're doing. I love to know who's checking in! Thanks and have a very Happy and safe New Year!
