Helping Katie

There are probably many things you take for granted--your health, your life, and your future with your family. What I've learned over the last month is that you should live every day to the fullest and stop taking things for granted. You never know the path that life may take you down.

I have been blessed to meet so many amazing people (in person and online) and am honored to consider myself a part of the crafting community. One of us needs help now, via prayers, positive thoughts, or however you may feel comfortable helping. Please visit: for details (and for a little creative inspiration too).

Digi-stamping is not my usual stamping routine, but this is a perfect opportunity to get started and help out a friend in need.

Happy 2011!

The last few weeks of 2010 were a whirlwind for Joe and I. He was in the ICU for a few days, but made it home to celebrate Christmas with our families. He's feeling better now, but we're both making some changes to make the coming years a little healthier for both of us. We also bought a house and have been settling in over the last week.

That hasn't left much time for blogging, let alone creating much of anything, but I wanted to share a few new photos I took during that time.

The first is Christmas Eve snow on the bush outside the front window at Joe's parents house. I took it through the window so there is a bit of glare from the screen, but I loved how the lights shined through the fluffy white snow.

Next is Bonnie and Clyde right before the move. Things were a little hectic, but they dealt with it pretty well. Clyde immediately curled up in the new grill pan we bought--I thought it was pretty cute.

The last one is my favorite--our new house! We still have what seems like a never-ending supply of boxes to unpack, but we are so happy it is OURS!

I can't wait to see what 2011 has in store!
