Happy New Year to all!!

WOW!! That's is only word to describe the 1st Annual New Years Eve Bash!

I am so overwhelmed by the show last night!! At one point we had 2037 logged was crazy!!! I finally came down from the high of excitement at about 2 this afternoon! I wish I could have kept up with the chat a bit better, but it was screaming along. A special thank you goes out to Tim Holtz for stopping in and hanging out for a bit!!

It was so much fun giving away all the prizes...congrats to everyone who won. Scrapadabadoo and I will be posting the list of winners sometime tomorrow (with 100 prizes from Scrapadabadoo its taking a bit to type up!!) I have posted the winners of my Favorite Things giveaway on the blog sidebar. (If you have ordered a pattern or kit from me, I have your shipping info...if you have not ordered from me, please email me with you shipping address at

I am sooo excited with everything I am planning for 2011! Fasten your seat belts, we are going to have a blast!!

As I talked about last night, I truly feel as if I have best friends all over the world! May the new year bring everyone good health and days filled with prosperity and creativity!!



  1. THANK YOU! And thank you again for such a wonderful night. I had so much fun watching. And although I did not win (at least I do not think I did unless I missed it on a bathroom run)a prize or the most incredible prize of the vagabond, it did not matter one bit. It was so nice for those of us too old, too tired, too comfy in our own homes or just do not like the night life to have something so fun and wonderful to do bringing in the New Year with you. I look forward to your next video or class. Cheers to 2011 and thank you for inspiring us all the time. Pinkalicious Hugs, Jonnie

  2. Hi Laura, Thank you for spend the night with us, it was a very nice way to say good bye to 2010 and to welcome 2011. According with my traditions the things that you do during the first moments of the years are the things that you are going to do for the rest of that year. so thanks to you, I'm going to scrap more!!!!!!!! Have a bless year for you and your family.

  3. I wasn't able to spend as much time as I would have liked, but the little bit I did see was fun! Glad you enjoyed it too!

  4. Thanks for a fun time last exciting! You guys were so incredibly generous with your giveaways! A sincere thank you for all of the time and effort that was put in to create such a neat event.

  5. Laura, Thank you soooo much for taking the time to spend New Years eve with us. As my hubby was working out of town, I was spending the night at home with the kids and my girlfriend who was in the same boat. And we just wanted to say how much we appreciated you taking the time away from your family to give to us. You have been such an inspiration, even as a seasoned scrapper I always look forward to seeing your latest projects and how I can add some new technique. Can't wait for 2011 to get rolling! See you next Friday :O)

    PS: You were just great in Highdef on the bigscreen! Too bad my hubby won't let me hog the tv every Friday night LOL

  6. Laura i missed the show...I live in athens,but I watch your videos....thanks for all the inspiration and I hope that you have a fantastic 2011...with health and happiness and lots and lots of inspiration!

  7. Thanks again for a Fun New Year's eve, Laura. My eyes are still a bit fuzzy from trying to keep up with last night's chat room. NEVER seen it fly like that. I was going to drink some wine while watching but I was dizzy enough from reading. Did you call Tim? What was his gift? It was exciting to have him drop in. Looking forward to crafting with you in 2011.

  8. Happy New Year
    I watched the video when I got back from work yesterday. It sucks having to get up so early but the video was fantastic. Thank you so much for a great year and fingers crossed this year is even better than the last.
    Love n Hugz

  15. Laura, Thank you so much for all the time you share with us. I had such a good time. This is the first year that my husband and I were empty nesters and being withing with you and all my other "friends" was just wonderful. I was lucky enough to hear my name being called out so that made the night even more exciting. I can't wait to see what 2011 will bring.

    Thank you again for all you give and tell Sarah we missed her.

    Laura, thank you for a wonderful time on New Year's! Thank you to Barrie and Carol and Joy, also for all they do! I didn't win a "prize" but I certainly gained something better, being in the company of amazing people. I'm really looking forward to 2011! Can't wait to get started on some of the things coming up! Thank you again!

  17. Laura, THANK YOU for a really fun way to spend New Year's Eve. My hubby and I odn't go out on that CRAZY night so it was such fun to watch your excitement and share the creativity. Many, many wishes for a Happy and Scraapy New Year! (It can only get better, huh?!) Am waiting with baited breath for all the wonderful ideas you keep tantalizing us with! I'm really excited about the 6 month class and the Fairy House. Best, Dori Garbutt

  18. Happy New Year Laura,
    Thank you for a wonderful New Year's Eve Bash. Not being much of a party person, this was such a great way to spend the evening. My hubby was sitting at his computer, playing games and I heard him chuckle a few time. I am so glad that i found you on line. You are so talented and such an inspiration for me. I do professional scrapbooking her in Fort Worth, and believe me I need a spark of inspiration every once in awhile. Again thank you and may God bless,

  19. Laura, It was so wonderful to spend New Year's Eve in a safe, creative and fun place that you provided for us. You are such a giving and pure hearted person. You are officially my new little sister! And many many thanks also go to Barrie, Carol, and of course, Joy. I know the coming year will be just fantastic...learning from you is a privilege and a treat. Bring on the projects!!! May God continue to bless you.

  20. Laura,
    Thanks so much for recording the show for us that couldn't make it live! It was awesome and I look forward to learning more things from you in 2011!

  21. Thanks Laura for a wonderful New Years Eve. This was my first time with U-stream and I think I'm hooked. Congratulation with your new project with Tim Holtz. You are very talented and your enthusiasm spills out. I'm waiting patiently for the next U-stream. Edie
