it's a new day..

The holidays are such a blur and they flew by so very quickly. It was a simple Christmas this year, with very few gifts. Refusing to get caught up in the crazy madness that the holidays can become, I skipped a number of pot lucks and parties to regroup and enjoy the time with the kids. They always make my season brighter! This is a photo of my family on Christmas Eve at my in-laws. (Notice that cute 20 yr. old neice of mine?...that's Elise Irene!...she's the light of my life, as are my boys!) (Also notice those cute cutains at my mother in-laws house, with the matching table cloth?.....I made those for her, aren't they fab?)...

The New Year is upon us and our weekends consist of football, football, and more football. I manage to do a little crafting during some of the games. Here's a photo of the new Valentine banner I made during the Auburn/Oregon game. Everything on the banner came from my stash of supplies. Sending my love to you all as we head into February.

For my love of journaling, photography, and memory keeping, I'll be working on Project Life this year. I still love the idea of leaving a legacy, leaving a footprint for my kids to know a little about me and a lot about their childhood. Join me in this journey, I'll be posting a monthly update reminder. If you want to learn more go here:

We are back to the routine of school, work, sports, homework and projects. Before we get to busy....Thanks for visiting me. I'm wishing you and your family a blessed New Year in 2011.

I love you friends.
