2013 New Year.. New Beginnings!

Happy New Year! 2012 was a wonderful year for me! I am looking forward to 2013.

I have decided to step down as Design Team Coordinator for the Creative Cutter Room and have accepted the Design Team Coordinator position at Docerela Creations. I am very excited about this new adventure. I will also be staying on the 3 Girl Jam and Little Scrap Pieces Design teams.

I hope you will come in and join all the fun challenges all these teams have going on! I always keep an updated list of my current Design Team challenges on my right sidebar!

This past month has been super busy for me and my girls. We have been spending a lot of time together. Since we decided to "get Healthy" back in July we are still 100% committed to our fitness. This has taken some time out of my crafting but it is worth it. You can check out my running blog HERE if you are looking to join the healthy train!

I truly cherish all my blogging friends and I am sorry that I haven't been around as much to visit, and my Christmas cards have still not made their way into the mail! Our family has big plans for this upcoming year and I made sure to be heard that my crafting is a hobby I want on our priority list. 
Ok! Enough from me, I think that is the most I talked since having my blog! Onto my project!

We spent some time camping this past week, trying out our new pop up camper! So much funner and warmer than the tents we have been camping in! Some friends came to visit and surprised us with a handmade fleece camping blanket. It was just the cutest pattern of trailers and trees! It called for a Thank you card!

Trailer from Campin Critters Cricut Cartridge
Paper from Target
Liquid Pearls
Brads, Stickles, twine
Swiss Dots embossing Folder

Our Camp Site:

Can you believe the view? This is Lost Dutchman, at the base was an old miners camp. And I mean old, little houses made of mud and thorn bush branches!

Happy New Year Friends!
