A Year of Creativity

This year is totally exciting. Yeah. We are filing for bankruptcy. My husband has started a new job. My daughter has her first-ever job. I turned 40 this year already (February). That's big, right? My children will all turn big ages this year, all evens. By the end of the year they will be 18, 16, 12, and 10.

So it's a big year! I plan to scrap it all in lots of ways. I've spent the afternoon today getting inspired by reading long-neglected scrappy blogs. Here's my most fave: My Inner Martha I totally love this girl's style! You gotta just scroll around there. It makes me think of the stuff Donna Downy has been doing with pictures and fabric. Elizabeth is more on the paper side (which I like), but she's incorporated so much fabric and lace into the process that is looks totally cool and super dimensional.

I'm all about photos, paper, punches, scissors, paint, stamps, staples, etc. My favorite time of year is the Fall when school supplies go on sale. I stock up on color crayons, notebooks, and glue every year. I just love all that stuff! I think it's one of the reasons I am a home schoolin' mom. All the supplies make me happy!

I'm off to create something unique and beautiful. Do yourself a favor, and make something lovely today!
