hello lovelies! welcome to 2011. i hope you had a fabulous christmas and new years. i know i did. i spent a lot of time snuggling my little ones and reconnecting with my husband. new years eve was fabulous. it was the first year since kids that my husband and i got to celebrate in style, instead of spending it alone and tucking in our kids. the girls had a sleepover at nana and papa’s house. and we played cards with another dear couple who also got babysitters. something we haven’t been able to do for three plus years. we used to get together every week and play cards. that just gets difficult when you have four little ones running around. i think i even stayed up until one or two in the morning, which is huge for me!

i am going into 2011 with a full heart. it is filled with anticipation for all that awaits me. when i look back on 2010, i am amazed at everything that has happened. i started this blog. i opened up shop. i started creating every day. i began teaching classes.  i followed my heart. i stepped out on this amazing creative adventure.

what is in store for 2011? i hope to be published in cloth paper scissors or somerset studio. i want to start teaching online classes. i want to continue to grow as an artist and stretch myself creatively. i want to walk in new places and discover new mountains to climb.
