Happy New Year!

Hard to believe it is a new year.  The older I get the quicker they fly by.  So far this year we've had to get a new furnace and I've been sick.... again!  Woo Hoo way to ring it in!

Well one advantage to being a bit under the weather was that I didn't really do much.  I did babysit my beautiful grandbabies on New Years Eve.  Felt like poo so I'm sure I wasn't much fun to hang out with.  The rest of the weekend I just laid around and watched movies.  I watched a couple of really good ones that I would definately suggest.  The first movie is "The proposal" with Sandra Bullock and Ryan Reynolds.  I really enjoyed it and it actually had me laughing hysterically at a couple of points in the movie.  The second movie that I really enjoyed was Julie and Julia.  I thought this was an adorable movie.  I'm pretty sure they are both chick flicks but so what... who cares.

Don't you hate it when you find something on line but when you go to purchase it, the shipping costs more than the item itself?  Well I came across something I need to share with you.  It is a website that is awesome in my opinion.  The website is called Crop Chocolate.  Here's the thing.  They have deals.... and I mean really good deals, on scrapbooking goodies (of course).  They have several throughout the day so check often BUT here is what I think is really sweet about this chocolate.  You can put your items in their "la carte" and they will hold them there for up to 45 days.  This way you can try to get several items before shipping them.  By the way at just $60 worth of product the shipping is free. Check out their website HERE and don't forget to check it throughout the day because they offer several things every day.

I recently made a birthday card for my baby Sis.  I used a stamp from Elisabeth Bell called "Day Dreaming".  I used Flower Soft to make the flowers in the flower box look more real. 

The rhinestones I added were done with my new i-rock tool from Imaginisce.  I liked the tool and found it a bit awkward to work with at first but I will give it another shot for sure.

Well I hope everyone had a great holiday weekend but now it's back to reality.

Here's wishing a very happy new year to everyone.
