Bring on the New Year!

Wow! Where, oh where did 2011 go??! What a year it was too, full of ups and downs as usual, but my memories are definately of the ups - fabulous new friends, great new business opportunities/adventures, and the most amazing summer vacation in years! I know that 2012 has nothing but greatness in store for us all and I say "Bring it on!"

Resolutions? Well of course! I recently saw a quote on Facebook (can't find it now to properly acknowledge though!), and it spoke of New Year's Day being everyone's birthday . . . well for my birthday I'd like a new body please! Tee hee! Well this is definately not a new resolution for me, but what is new is being more accountable to it. So I hope you won't mind seeing my weight loss updates posted here in the coming months :-) I have a stair climb fundraiser in February for the BC Lung Association, that I am doing in support of my daughter and her asthma, and if I don't start training ASAP I'm not gonna make it up one flight of stairs let alone 48!

For scrapbooking my resolutions are 1) to complete the LOAD challenge I signed up for for January (via Let's Scrap) 2) to get at least one piece published 3) apply for at least one manufacturer Design Team 4) get my Ebay account going for Paper Candie Designs 5) host more workshops 6) Have Fun!!! Oh, and blog more!!!

So with that, my last post of 2011 introduces my first layouts for my January Clubs and Workshops:

Close To My Heart's "Wonderland" paper line and co-ordinating embellishments.

So to you and yours, all the very best in 2012, may it be your best year yet!

Happy Scrappin'!

Merry Mojo Missing

I am far from saying "Bah-humbug", I really do love Christmas, but I just cannot seem to find my Merry Mojo right now! This is the longest it has ever taken me to decorate my house and tree, sure hope I find my mojo this weekend!

On the upside though, I did finally get my Christmas cards, letters, and photos done and mailed out yestarday. Maybe that is why my Mojo's missing, after making a what felt like a gazilion cards!

A gazillion cards or not, if felt real good to have them done and sent! I missed sending out cards last year so had some serious catching up to do :-)

I finished up my second term on the Design Team at Let's Scrap at the end of November. It was alot of fun but time for a break. Apparently now I need to find my scrappy mojo too, as I'm now behind two sketches! This was the last layout I did for Let's Scrap, and the sketch that went with it. Hopefully after a nap or two this weekend I'll have some more to share with you :-)

Happy Scrappin'!
Andie :-)
