Busy New Year

Well it has been a busy new year and with the new year has come some major changes in my life.  My husband just found out that his company did not receive the contract from the Air Force to continue there current contract so we have decided it is time to retire and enjoy more time together.  Along with that we are looking at moving to a new retirement location and home.  As you can imagine it is exciting and a little scary.  I have been very bad about blog posts this past month as there has been so much going on but I am going to work hard to do better this month.  Sometimes the not knowing what is going to happen is worse than the busy that comes from knowing.

I wanted to share a couple of pictures of some art work made with the new February Stamp of the Month - A Happy Hello.  I plan on making several projects using this stamp during the month and will be sure to share them with all of you.  Remember this stamp set is $17.95 but you can receive it for just $5 during the month of February only with a $50 qualifying purchase.  Also, during February you can receive one of our beautiful new albums for half price with the purchase of one at the full price.  For more information click on the shopping cart at the top of this blog or visit

Here are those promised pictures:

Be sure to visit me again to see more exciting projects using this stamp set and more.  Happy Crafting.
