Happy New Year...

What a great start we had!  After Christmas, we went to Ohio to visit my family and after a few days, David and I left the kids with my parents and finally took a honeymoon!  15.5 years, 4 children, 5 deployments and 15 moves later!  We spent 4 blissful days in Oahu enjoying the absolutely BEAUTIFUL scenery, snorkeling, swimming, kayaking, hiking and just spending time together!  It was amazing! Something we will definitely have to do again...soon!  If you have never been, find a way to go!  So, this year I set off my resolutions until I got home and back into the swing of things...obviously, you know where I am going with this! 
1. Post to my blog more often!
2. Scrapbook!
3. Paper craft more!
4. Use up my stash!
5. Make more gifts!

Ambitious?  Maybe.  But with all the wonderful supplies I have and all the new supplies CTMH is going to carry (you should see the new catalog!), I NEED to do this!  So... here are a few things I have already made this year.
