Hello Old Friend.

Good to see you again. It's been a while. A pretty dang long while.

Well, December was a blur. I cooked and baked up a storm. I can't remember EVER making as many goodies and yummy munchies in my life. We spent lots of time with family and friends and I can easily say this was the best Christmas that we have had in this house during the past 7 years of living here.

January has started off full blast. Booster Club has pretty much taken over as our busy season approaches. On January 22nd from 7-9pm we will be hosting our first Sock Hop at the school. Admission is $5 per family. We will be selling rootbeer floats and popcorn. There will be lots of dancing and contests and prizes to be won.

February 5th from 6:00-8:00, I am putting together our first Art Walk at Fullerton IV. Our Booster Club has paid for a local artist-in-residence, Victoria Carnate, to come teach several different art projects to EVERY child in our school. Now talk about an undertaking. This woman is incredible! The projects have been amazing, the kids have been having a blast and Victoria and I are ready to drop at the end of each day. But we will be featuring the kids' fantastic art in a show. Punch, hot cocoa and CHOCOLATE will be involved!

THEN, coming up in April...our Annual Bingo Night with our BIGGEST PRIZE EVER! Can't divulge all the information right now, but it does concern a certain mouse with really big ears!!!!

Now onto SCRAPBOOKING! Every time this year, I experience burn out and just an over all lack of mojo and inspiration. I blame it on the rainy Oregon weather. But being able to work with such fabulous products and people definitely helps bring on the mojo!

CHA is right around the corner and the sneaky peekies..they are going to be happening ANY DAY now. So if'n I still have any readers, stay tuned!
Well, lookie what I have in my pocket right now..hmmm what is this?
Is it a sneak peek right now? whyyy yes, yes it is:

These lil gems are headed to my house as we speak and I can't wait to get my hands on the Vibey wonder of it all. Check out that COLOR and SHIMMER on it!

And now that January is here. That means Scarlet Lime has a new kit out!

Here are my layouts using both of these kits:

Our guest designers this month are the owners from Glitz! Make sure to check out their use of the kit and the rest of the amazing design team in the Scarlet Lime Gallery!

So that is all my scrappy goodness for now, but next week...the peeks, they shall BEGIN!
Stay tuned!
