A New Do for Spring!

I got a new hairdo yesterday for spring! Check out the picture in the sidebar! What does that have to do with stamping?! Well, not much, but I'm so happy with the new look and it's inspiring me to try things outside of my usual. I'm playing this weekend and forcing myself to try some new things so I'll be sharing with you in the next week!

Talking of new things -- The Angel Company released their spring supplement, spring fever promotion, newsletter, and annual seminar information all yesterday!! It has taken me until today to really absorb it all and I can still just say WOW!

I love some of the new stamp sets and absolutely can not wait to get them in my hands. I think that this one is my favorite:

Or wait, maybe it's this one:

I don't know! There are too many to choose from. If you want to see them all and the gorgeous new paper called Mulberry Meadow (are you ready for spring yet?!), click here to download the brochure. (It may take a while to download -- contact me if you would rather have a paper copy.)

Besides the fun of the new hairdo yesterday I also found out through TAC's newsletter that I had the #2 sales for the whole company in January!!! Thank you to all of you for your support in making that possible! I'm getting closer to my goal of reaching Executive with TAC this year!

TAC also released all of the information about their annual seminar yesterday! This will be their 10th seminar -- and my fourth year going! I can't hardly wait -- June seems like forever away!

Happy President's Day

We had a history lesson last night at the dinner table with my daughter in preparation for President's Day today. It amazes me to look at her and hear her talk about Abraham Lincoln and George Washington and all of the other presidents. Wasn't it just yesterday that I brought her home from the hospital? And now she's a first grader with an already extensive knowledge of American history! I thought that I'd share this page that I recently made of my daughter when she was only two. I'm so happy how well the Rustic Chic paper and Flourishes set match with the feel of the picture.

Whew! Where is February going?

I've been MIA from the blog for a while. Between my Happy Heart Day class, my great friend Lori visiting, and kids' valentines activities, the first two weeks of February disappeared in a flash!

While Lori was here, we made all sorts of samples including this one of a mini album using Catelynne paper, Fanciful Flowers, and the February Incentive stamp set! Isn't it lovely?

This past week, I did a stamping class with my daughter's brownie troop for Valentine's Day. Fourteen 6 and 7 year old girls! Wow! Alot of work but so much fun. I'm very grateful to the other moms who were there to help. Each girl made three cards and the cutest gift box. My daughter also made all 24 of her valentines for her classmates this week. They came out so wonderfully! And it is so much fun to watch her creativity blossom.
