ANYBODY ELSE HAVING PROBLEMS UPLOADING PHOTOS?  This will not let me upload photos...    :( help.

Well, we had a little bit of snow this season...Only about 2 feet at my house! I missed quite a bit of work, was forced to stay in for quite some time (which is not said in happiness or sadness, just awkward!). I will post photos at some point, BUT I have excuses as to why I haven't been blogging and need help from all of you first:  

#1: My little Macbook died, hard drive crashed and I have lost EVERYTHING. This includes all the links to my favorite blogs (Sandy, Molly, etc...) I need the links!! I love checking in and now I can't.  wah.

#2: We have not had the internet for over a week -- which means no blogging...I might be doing this from work...maybe. 

#3: I got a new camera and have not gotten a chance to install the new software, once that all goes down, I will post new photos. 

These are my excuses... :) Happy winter!

Hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas, we sure did. I think the winning gift this year was a Wii from Travis's mom, it has been quite a hit at our house, tons of fun. Sophia is an amazing bowler, by the way! :)

etsy finds....

Well, I decided to start this post out with a shout out to Heather. A fellow graphic designer that I work with. She opened an Etsy shop! Good job Heather, way to fulfill your goals and keep yourself challenged...Inspiring! Here is a link to her shop! While I was checking her Etsy shop out, I browsed further on, delving into my paper/stationery obsession and found another great Etsy shop, paperheartdesign. Cute stuff. Just thought I'd throw those out there, support the indies.

I am finding all the people who live my dreams online. At first that sounds....I don't know, depressing. BUT, little do you know, it is actually VERY exciting. The reason for this is that it gives me faith and confidence that someday, I, TOO, may have my own stationery design business. Soon I will open an Etsy shop and move forward from there! Anyway, here is my newest muse: Pretty pretty paper. Well, that's all for now!

Turkey day

Well, it is now over and we are moving on to discussion of the next holiday, MY BIRTHDAY! Oh, and Christmas. 
We had a great Thanksgiving, Some of my family and some of Travis's family all got together at our house and had a feast! It was just nice to have everyone together that could make it and not even have to leave the house. It was great, couldn't ask for more. Usually I am horrible about taking pictures, but on Thanksgiving, I made myself (and everyone else) do it, and I am glad I did. I got some great ones! Here are a few:

On another note, I designed my Christmas cards, but haven't printed them OR sent them out. So, I just hope for all of you out there looking forward to it, that you get it BEFORE Christmas. You know how I am though, no promises! 

Just for you Sandy, I am so excited that you started your blog, I will check it often!
