I own a CRICUT!!!!

So I just celebrated my 30th birthday... again.  My husband TOTALLY surprised me with a CRICUT!!!  Can't believe it!!!  I feel so lucky to have a husband that really thinks about what I would like for a gift.  He's the best!

I'm looking forward to posting more cards in my Etsy store now that I've got a Cricut.  I haven't been doing anything with my store (no don't look... it's still Christmas-y).  Now I'm motivated to create, create, create!  I even made a couple of thank you cards on my Cricut and sent them off to my family.  Watch for my latest creations!  Yippy!

I won another giveaway!

What's better than Christmas and the New Year? Winning a giveaway!!! Yes, that's right! I won a giveaway from Bliss Think Ink!!! I was so excited when I got the news and then... I received THE package! Wowee! Check it out!

I received a bunch of beautiful handmade cards and a "kit". The kit was a nice surprise because Tia hadn't indicated that she would be sending it as part of the "mini correspondence kit". It has all kinds of embellishments like felt buttons, ovals and gingerbread men! There are bows and squares and so much more! I feel so lucky!

Happy New Year 2010!

Happy New Year to everyone! I hope that you celebrated in style and had a safe holiday! I'm not much of a partier so I treated it like any other night -- went to bed by 10:30pm. I know, so exciting...

Any New Year's resolutions? I always make the same ones year after year, with a few new ones added in once in awhile. Typically my top goal is to get in the best physically shape of my life. Well, it's still a goal and especially important to me this year. I'm officially in the worst shape of my life AND in November I found out that my cholesterol is elevated. Cholesterol levels are a good motivator for me!

I'm also working with a life coach nowadays. She has been instrumental is opening my eyes in helping me think broader and with a different perspective. With her help, I hope to keep my New Year's resolution of great physical health but also to improve in many other areas of my life. If you don't know what life coaching is, I strongly recommend that you research it online. It isn't counseling (been there, done that). It's a way to move forward FROM TODAY. Yes, you refer to your past now and then, but it's most important to deal with the here and now. I'm thoroughly enjoying it and looking forward to what my future holds!
