Check out the sneak peeks on AccuCut's Craft blog here and
then enter to win!


Queen & Co New Releases ROCK!

Check out the newest Queen & Co releases for Winter CHA on their blog. They are doing away with the bulky packaging and have added some super cute bucket kits. I love their felt borders and flowers with rhinestones in the centers. I have even downloaded their catalog from their blog. They have so many wonderful example projects and layouts using the felt that I just had to add a bunch to my inspiration journal!

I love this time of year when all the companies roll out new products! It just takes so long to find them in the stores...

Jessica Acs is giving away her new book!

Check out her blog here for details. I checked out her book "Outstanding Mini Albums" on Amazon and was able to search through a couple of pages and I just have to say "WOW!" There are some really detailed photos of gorgeous minis there. Can't wait to see the rest of the book! Her blog is pretty neat too!

Winter Icing on the trees...

Driving family to the airport in Jackson, Wyoming today I was able to
capture these pictures with my cell phone. Each branch was coated
with ice and sparkling in the sun.
The air was full of glitter as the ice was blown off of the branches. So pretty!
I love Jackson, Wyoming and I am super grateful to have been able to
spend a week here over the last several years.

The twins have learned to ski very well and they have spent the
week skiing with the ski school coaches and Daddy and Grandpa. They
have also gotten to ski with their 3 year old cousins who just started
learning this year. So much fun to play and spend time with family
that we only get to see once a year.

Well, we'll be back home tomorrow night and then it will be back to
70+ degrees and the regular routine. Sigh....

More pictures and details later!

Such sad news...

I just read this and I must admit I'm very disappointed.
I have seen so many of the magazines that I have enjoyed
over the years disappear and 2009 will see the end of
another. Scrapbook Answers and Simple Scrapbooks
were my absolute favorites. SA quietly ceased publication
a couple of years ago and left a huge void in my scrapping
magazine enjoyment. Then I found Simple
Scrapbooks and it was filled.
Now they are both history.
So disappointing...

Pensacola Pelican- Happy 2009!

During a New Year's walk around downtown, we happened on two
Pelican 'models'. They were quite keen on having their pictures taken
and kept posing as all the tourist cameras kept flashing. This gorgeous
fellow allowed several people to get right up to him but this photo
is taken from about 15 feet away.
Gotta love those Zoom lenses!!

Happy Belated New Year!
