anyone out there. WOW... it's been awhile. Hmm.. our oldest daughter could tell you as she's been sending me weekly reminders to get my butt in gear and start posting again.

Well, I would have to say we are officially settled into our new home!! We got to host Christmas Eve here and it truly felt like home with our family and friends here. My studio ( do you like that word Lisa?) is at about 98% and will probably never get beyond that.

I haven't made a card in so long I'm not so sure I remember how!!!! Yes, that means I gave out store bought cards this year, although I did include a family newsletter to let everyone know what was happening in our busy lives.

This included the news that our oldest daughter Jocelyn is marrying her sweetheart Mike on Oct 11th, 2008. Yep, that's in 9 months but Joc is so well orgainzed, so I have no worries.

I did get a new cool tool for Christmas from Paul, I have hooked it up and tried a couple of cuts with it.

It is a digital cutting machine that uses the fonts and dingbats from your computer to diecut letters etc. from 1/4 to 9 inches. I am looking forward to playing with it more and possibly even getting some more scrapbook pages done!!

Well, hopefully I can get back into the groove and start posting more often.

Have a happy Monday

As always, I checked your blog this morning when I got to work to see if MAYBE, just MAYBE, you had posted something. And this might be the happiest day of my life (aside from the upcoming wedding day haha). Thanks for finally getting around to it, Mom-of-the-Bride!
Love ya! xo's

I am still trying to get you and Sarah and Debbie all coordinated so we can go out. We are in need of a little socializing, don't you think!! Oh yeah, your new toy looks cool, can't wait to see all the neat things you make with it. Congrats to Jocelyn on her upcoming wedding day, you must be so excited. Soon you'll be a grammy, hahaha!!!
