Oh my, I know I haven't posted in a while but I didn't know it was over a year. Its not that I have been able to scrapbook or make cards during that time. Just didn't post them.
I will have to take more opportunities to be creative and share my work.

Life has thrown some curve balls in the last year and a half and now its time to get back into doing something I love for me. I have cleaned and organized my craft room and moved my laptop and cricut machine from the kitchen where it looks messy and out of place to my scrapbook area.
My goal for this year to to take a class (card or layout) or go to an all day crop at least once a month.
Scrapbooking has always been a release for me and helps to keep me sane so I am going to be selfish and do what I know is good for me.
I have been fortunate to have found a Close to My Heart representative, Dorothy Seiler who does a monthly class and held a crop in Feburary. Two close friends of mine organized the 9th Annual Arkona Scrapbook Day in March. Other friends have organized a card making day in April (which I cannot attend due to previous engagement but will try to join next time. 4 of us are going to Great Lakes Mega Meet in Novi Michigan for May. So far this year I am meeting my goal.
I will be posting projects completed as I go along.
Here is one I finished at the crop in February

We had a snowday today and I couldn 't connect remotely to work so decided it was time to take a look at Pagemaps University projects I had downloaded. Lots of fun layouts and cutting files so well worth the price. They are going to be offering a cards course too. Check out the linkhttp://pagemaps.com/

For a happy New Year, just stick to some simple and basic rules. Have faith in yourself and your abilities. Count your blessings before you cry on your misfortunes. Learn to take each day one at a time. Create opportunities for yourself for quitting is never an option. Above all accomplish all you take under your wings - never abandon without completion.

Our Christmas Celebrations have finished. A quiet couple of days planned to recuperate from a minor bleed in my eye causing temporary vision issues and then on to face the New Year.
This past year we lost 2 very special members of our family, my dad in August and Arthur's dad in November. We continue to grieve the loss of Granny a couple of years ago.
It has been a difficult couple of years but we have many things to look forward to in 2014.
Aaron prepares to enter University and is busy with a very difficult Semester but next one will be much less stressful for him. He continues his involvement with MedVents and hopes to pick up his voice lessons again in February.
Jenna is doing well in school and will get back to skating in the New Year after missing her "Baby Blues" dance test due to an injury.
Arthur continues to deal with his father's death as executor of his estate and still enjoys his job.
I am continuing on my weight loss journey and had a very successful 2013 thanks in part to an at work group through Weight Watchers. I am feeling much better and have an extensive wardrobe I can now fit into again.
Aside from minor issues we have enjoyed a year of health.
Aaron. Jenna and I were fortuante to have been able to visit the Big Apple and spent 10 days in New York City seeing the things I always wanted to see.
Not sure what 2014 will bring us be we wish you all a happy and healthy New Year.

Have been feeling a little blue the last few days. Had yet another death in the family so decided it was time to do something creative.

Miss Kates Cuttables has a freebie of the day .svg file that I can use with Sure Cuts a Lot 2 and my Cricut machine. She also has adorable sets for sale at a very reasonable price. Can also use .svg files with Silhouette machines.

I guess life got in the way and my time for crafting took a backseat to family stuff. That is all resolved now and I can get back to creating instead of just looking for ideas to create.
Off today to Scrapfest in Oshawa with a couple of good friends for some fun and fellowship. Its a beautiful day for a roadtrip and who knows what we will discover along the way.
Stay tuned for some projects as I plan to start taking some more time for the things that keep me sane
