what's going on?

I've been doing some early Spring cleaning. It feels so good to be organizing all my stuff, especially my craft room. It's amazing how much stuff accumulates in such a short time, which has lead me to start another destash box . Time to make some room!

I want to put together a post and answer a few questions. I know a few have asked about Etsy, so I'll get to that later this week. I also wanted to say that there may be a **give away** here on my blog sometime next week.... *hint*hint. :)) I love surprises!

a quick hello,

I've been popping in here and there. A little time on Flickr, a little time on Facebook, but I've been spending most of my time being crafty. This past week I managed to start and finish a few new layouts, a journal, a mini album, and a note-pad. I love weeks like that! I have one last project to finish and then I'll be able to spend some time catching up on blogs, and photos.

I did want to share a couple of photos. I did a post this summer about caring for Orchids. They are the only flower and can keep alive!!

**For example, I purchased one of those Amaryllis bulbs for Christmas, (you know, the ones you can buy at Target for about $10,) and they're suppose to be fool-proof? Well, I grew it for 4 weeks and no flower!! Alaina was crushed. My green thumb seems to be out of order.**

Back to Orchids. Mine are making their way back!! They seem to bloom about every 6 months, so the one Peter gave me for our anniversary back in July is ready to bloom this week. I'm a lucky girl... flowers in February!! sweet!

and Alaina's little orchid is busy growing a new stem. It should be ready to bloom next month. She's been anxiously watching it's progress! :)

I'm a flower girl at heart :))

shiny and new

While I'm spending the afternoon waiting, I thought I'd update the blog! I have been working everyday for the past couple of weeks and while I love to be busy creating stuff, it sure is nice to see the light at the end of the tunnel. My term for Bad Girls has come to an end, and I'm super excited about my next job. I'm joining the creative team for Celine Navarro's magazine, entreARTistes!!
I've been a huge fan of Celine's work for some time now, and being able to make pretty scrapbook layouts and projects just seems like the perfect fit for me!

Here's a left-over photo for my very first post on the entreARTistes Magazine blog. This was an extra project that I didn't end up including. I've made a few of these lately, little books for holding notes, tiny photos,and quotes. Just something pretty to hold. Watch for my post this month on their blog!!

I started collecting all of the pages I make in this small suitcase box. I love filling up the box, it makes me feel so accomplished by the end of the day!

one last photo, just a dainty tag I made from a photo negative :))

Peter got me flowers last week. Maybe a pre-Valentines Day gift? I don't think you could ever go wrong with flowers as a gift, and it sure beats the frying pan I received a couple of Valentines ago. ;)) With Valentines Day being on Sunday, I'm having a cute little dinner party for us and the kids, and Alaina and I have some school things to work on. I hope everyone has a lovely and romantic Valentines Day!!
