Happy New Year!!

What a year 2009 was! It seems like since July it was all just a blur. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a safe and happy new year. The new year is bringing new things into my life.

For starters, Scrap-Mart has a brand spankin' new blog. Howard and I have been working for the past week or so to get the new blog all set up. Howard is the technical guru so he did all the behind the scenes stuff. I simply uploaded some vidoes, set up some links and worked up the blog posts announcing our new dt. We have doubled our dt size from last year which means double the inspiration! We have a super talented group of ladies joining us this year and I hope you'll join us on our new blog.

Also new in my life is this:

Isn't it gorgeous?! I LOVE Dooney & Bourke bags. This one I recently bought on eBay, NWT, and I'm hoping it arrives tomorrow. It is {HUGE}, just the way I like them. My hubby and I don't usually put Christmas presents under the tree for each other. He got his present early...we went to the Kiss concert! Rocky on! So, I decided it was time for me to have a new Dooney...the ONLY thing I buy name brand. I can wear Wal-Mart clothes and Payless shoes but I want a Dooney on my arm. I know, it's silly but it's just one of my quirks. hehehe

I haven't done any scrappin' yet this year but considering it's only the first I figure I'm okay. But, I can share with you my last project of 2009...

My mother and father-in-law don't like for us to buy them Christmas presents so I figured I could make one and get away with giving them a gift. Plus, it would be a gift from the {heart}. I had taken Cody and Shelby to meet Santa and my sister-in-law met us there with Rylee. Thankfully we were able to take pics with our personal cameras so I got in some extra shots. I took the photos and had them printed in wallet size so they would all fit into an 8x10 frame. I used Spellbinder's Labels Eight to create mat for my title, which reads "We Still believe in Santa". That was for my father-in-law as he still signs EVERY present "from: Santa". The font I used was from the Quickutz Santa's Workshop Holiday Gift Set and I mixed in some Making Memories Mini Alpha stickers. They both loved the gift and I felt good being able to give them something that was special to all of us.

Thanks to all of you who hung with me through 2009. I hope to see you all in 2010 as well! Be sure to swing by the new Scrap-Mart blog and check out our new dt. I'll be back soon with some more scrappy goodness!

That is an awesome gift with the pics of the kids. Great idea. And I am JUST like you with the D&B bags!! I can wear thrift store clothes but have to have a D&B bag. They're the best, and that one is gorgeous!
