Happy New Year And Happy Crafting!

Hey everyone! Just wanting to wish you all a happy and healthy 2009. I am excited to start this new year off! Even though it's just the change of the calendar year, it still is a time to reflect on what I have to be grateful for and what I want to change in my life going forward. One of my resolutions as you can probably tell is to make sure to post a lot more. Last year was so awesome and crazy at the same time with the birth of my first child. Now that she is turning 1 within the next few months, I have been able to start getting back into doing more things that I love like working on my blog, reading and crafting! I posted a some projects that I have done the last few months as well as updated pictures of my daughter that I hope you guys all enjoy. She really is a sweetheart!

As I get ready to post more projects that I have already made as well as future projects still in my head {there are too many taking up space!}, I just want to mention one thing quickly. In the process of creating anything from scrapbook pages, to cards, to picture frames, to jewelry and hopefully the Christmas village that I want to have completed by next Christmas, and much, much more, my inspiration for all of these things come from many places. I get inspiration from the many other blogs that I love to visit, from magazines that I subscribe to, from a label on a package of crackers, to a color combination from a beautiful dress that I found in one of my favorite shopping sites. My point is, inspiration comes from everywhere. It's all around us. And especially being crafters, our biggest inspiration is each other. I am blessed to have great friends who love to craft as much as I do and who are better at it than I am {yes, Amber Lafata, I'm talking about you!!!} I always try to mention where a certain inspiration came from and a list of products that are needed to complete the projects that I create. Sometimes we don't even realize where the idea or inspiration may have originated from. I am sorry if this makes anyone upset, but I do try to mention as much as I can and give credit to the right people and places. I just want to say thanks for visiting so often and please, please come back soon!

Again, Happy New Year and Happy Crafting Everyone!!!
