Another Year Has Come and Gone

Wow. I can't believe that it is 2010. A new year to have new fun in. The holidays were not too exciting for me this year. Just Mom and I as usual. I made Mom's Christmas cards for her to mail out. Now I'm working on birthday cards.

We did have 2 new additions to the Family Tree on December 13th. My niece and God-daughter gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl. Chloe and Conner who joined their 2 yr old big sister Caila. Haven't had a chance to see them other than the hospital photos but both are home and doing fine.

My sister sent me some really neat gifts for Christmas that she had made. An inventory book for all my Stampin'Up! items and non-SU items. It is 4-1/2" x 7-1/2" inches and she bound all the pages using a Bind-it-All. She left it for me to alter as I wished. The pages are set for the different color family (Pads, Reinkers, Papers - all sizes, and markers). She also has pages for th In Color items, Designer Series Paper, In Color Ribbon, Ribbon by the different sizes, Big Shot dies by the types of dies, and stamp sets. She has lots of pages set up for the different sections that are blank - to fill in as I want. I am working on getting what I have listed. The book is a good size to carry to events that I may want to know what I have and what I don't have.

I also received a recipe book that she had typed up and printed out all the family recipes that we had that had been hand written or we had collected over the years. She made one for each adult female in the family - 9. A lot of work.

My craft room is almost done. I need a few more cubes and then I think I will have a place for everything. Working on labeling everything. It is nice to have things where I can see them and not have to dig through boxes. I have a desk for my computer and printer and another to work on. Now I have to get my stamping mojo going and make things.

Weather here has been typical winter - snow and cold. At least it has been sunny most days.

I am starting to fill in my calendar with stamping events with my Wisconsin Friends - The Curds. Can't wait to get back in the swing and meet with the old friends and make new friends as they join in the fun.

That's all for now. I hope this year I can keep this up better than I did last year. I also am working on learning how to add links and more exciting things to this blog.

Thank you for stopping by and checking me out. Happy New Year to one and all.
