Welcome 2010!!

Hope you all enjoyed ringing in the New Year! I didn't quite make it to midnight...I've become a total party pooper as I get older!! I have been working on finishing up the last mini's I've owed, making up some new kits and goofing off with my family. The kids go back to school on Tuesday. Yeah!!! Loved having them home but....

I have had several people comment on having the 12 Days of Christmas Projects withdrawals! I agree! I have decided to continue in that vein...though not on a daily basis...but on a weekly basis! So, check in on Wednesdays for "What's Up Wednesday" here on my blog and on YouTube. I've got a new style paper bag album coming up this Wednesday so make sure you come and check it out!

I will also be having a special event here on my blog starting January 24th. It will be a "Fifty Days to 50!" countdown. OMG, I can't believe it but I will be turning ...gulp!...cough!....50 in mid March! I had no problem with 30 (I was looking forward to maybe not getting carded every where I went!). At 40 I was pregnant with my daughter, so I don't remember much! But 50! How the %*&$#@ did that happen! I don't feel (nor do I act) my age! So I decided, to make the transition easier, I would start celebrating early. Not sure what I'm going to do yet, but I will keep you posted.

Happy Scrapping to all!!



  1. Laura, Happy New Year to you and yours! How exciting to read that you will be doing What's Up Wednesday. With all your talent, I have no doubt you'll have loads of projects to share with us. Looking forward also to the new paper bag album. On turning 50....I'm still in shock and I'll turn 56 this year! lol Oh well, I'm thankful for the 55 yrs so far. To quote my favorite commercial jingle, "When I Grow Up I Want to be an Old Woman". Amen! Thanks for sharing your vast knowledge of paper crafts with us. It is much appreciated.

I'm in much the same neighborhood age wise....I'll be 48 in some few days here.....don't act my age either. I quite like it that way. So do the kids I watch. They call me weird....but good crazy weird. I always maintain normalcy and MANURITY are highly over-rated!!! Who says we have to grow up.....really!
