Pics, a shout out and a giveaway!

Geez! Time is flying already! In less than a week my baby girl will turn 4! How did that happen? Already? I am so thankful that I was able to stay home with both Cody and Shelby for their infant and toddler years. And even now that I'm working, my job (and boss) are very giving and flexible. I couldn't ask for a better situation (thanks Angela!).

Last week we had some crazy winter weather that was everything from just bitter cold to wet and icy to SNOW! Personally, I don't mind any of it. So I have to stay inside for a few days? So what?! Drives most people crazy but I think it's beautiful. I was awestruck at some of the icicles and I couldn't resist heading out to take some photos.

These are just a few that I shot!

If you didn't notice, classes have resumed at The Scrappin' Pad. It's too late to get in on February's class but I will be posting info on March's very soon. If you're not in the area but are still interested in a kit, email me at I'll get you taken care of.

And in other scrappy news, the new blog is up and running. The new design team has settled in and is doing a fabulous job. We are making few changes to the way we do things. First of all, we are moving from our Monday-Wednesday-Friday posting to DAILY posts! Yep, that's right a full daily dose of inspiration! And, insted of having only sketch challenges, it will now rotate out and every Friday one of our designers will have a unique challenge for you to participate in. And, for every challenge you participate in, you will get your name entered into a drawing for a random monthly prize! How cool is that?! Stop by and see us and if you happen to link to our blog, be sure to email me at so I can add your blog to our friends list!

I'd also like to give a shout out to my friend, Rae Barthel. Rae just announced that she was chosen to join the Nikki Sivils design team! How exciting! A huge congrats to you, Rae! You are very deserving of that spot! To read her announcement and see her beautiful submissions click HERE.

And, one last thing before I go. SMDT member Jenn recently had her blog done by The Posh Box. Well, I saw on Jenn's blog that The Posh Box is giving away not one, but two blog designs! How exciting! She has lots of different templates to choose from and it is super affordable! Click HERE to read the info and enter for the giveaway!

Well, I'd better run and finish getting ready for work! I've procrastinated long enough this morning. hehehe Have a great day and I'll be back soon with cute Valentine project!
