...Sweetest husband EVER!

This year for a treat my husband has decided to buy me a kindle.  I think this is the sweetest gesture ever since he decided just for me - not because he wants one, not because he has some plan to spend a ton of money on himself, just because he loves me.  I am somewhat unaccustomed to this since we usually do a "we each have this much to spend" sort of deal...  How sweet is he?!

In other news, I have decided to start doing more with card making as a way to use up some of the little odds and ends that I end up with from scrapbooking...  I have found a couple of challenges to get me motivated, and so now I am "off to the races" as they say.  Card making is a lot easier than doing whole scrapbooks since I only have to pull out 1/4 the supplies that I do for a book, and I can have it done in no time.  I just need to find a better storage solution for all of these supplies that I am accumulating...

Not really a whole lot to update you on today, but there it is!  Oh, and if you are my sister, get ahold of me sometime?  I haven't heard from you in a while...

New Year!

I have (had) a plan!  I want to finish a mini scrapbook each month in 2011.  I am off to a great start - so far I have one done (started on the first...) and I have nearly finished 2 more!  So, when all is said and done, I guess I will have to just say that I plan on finishing at least 12 mini albums this year.  I recently discovered the Cricut cutting system and promptly fell in love with it.  I plan on buying a Cricut Expression with my tax return this year - along with some awesome cartridges. 

So far I have purchased the "Freshly Picked" cartridge and the "Trim the Tree" cartridge.  I have made a couple cute projects using the Freshly Picked cartridge... (Sorry - no looksies!  It's a suprise for someone!) and I am still waiting on my Christmas cartridge.  I hope that you all have a great new year, and that you have a ton of fun with your families and friends in 2011!  I know that's my plan!
