I had the pleasure again of designing some projects for Queen & Co.'s booth at CHA (Craft and Hobby Association) a few weeks ago. Have you seen the new 2014 Queen & Co's products? They have some
fabulous new paper lines and adorable new embellishments! I got to play with the new girl line called Darling Diva. The colors and the patterns are awesome! Here are a couple of the projects I created.

Happy New Year everyone! 2013 was a year of change for me with regard to my scrapbooking and crafty priorities. Early in the year I lost my creative mojo quite a bit, and I realized that I needed to cut back and focus more on other things in my life. After a three month hiatus from scrapbooking (during which I was quite busy with work-work -- my "day job"), I'm ready to get back to crafting again . . . but on a smaller scale and with fewer commitments and deadlines. I might even try (gasp*) Project Life this year. I'll see how it goes. No pressure on myself! Whatever crafty endeavors I take on in 2014, my priorities are going to be family, friends and health (I'm going to join a gym and start working out for the first time in 12 years!).
