it's all about the 'family'

I must admit I haven't been doing much designing lately, even though there is not a lack of ideas in my head. I have spent my time adjusting to our new area, painting (I have a lot more to do), scouts, chauffeuring my children to and from school, organizing - everything but designing.
I have managed to do a little scrapbooking and I did manage to make this 'family' frame.

You can add a touch of cozy to your home with this 10" x 20" home decor project or you can personalize it with your name!

hi from houston!

We made it - we survived the big move. We're still unpacking and trying to tame the mess. Look at this beautiful spider we found on our back fence. I'm sure I would not think it was so beautiful if I found it in the house.

on the move

With our e-mails about moving you're probably wondering where we're moving to. Well....we're moving to Houston, Texas. This is a huge change, opportunity, adventure, and move for us.

It's Valentine week at our house!
I made a woven heart basket for my husband and each of our children to hang on their doorknobs. Each day I will give them a small treat or a special note.
So far my children have loved the chocolates. And I know my husband will not object to receiving a few little love notes.

time flies

This is my third attempt to post a few words. I first tried at the beginning of the month, then again a week later and wow here we are now, the month has almost flown by. Thinking back on 2008 I feel the same way, the year has flown by. I realize that setting goals has never been more important to me than at this time. I don't want the time to just fly by. I want to be the super fun mom I always wanted to be, not just the busy mom with so much to do.
A couple of my children's friends invited them to go skiing with them during Christmas break and I realized that they barely know how to ski and snowboard. We live very close to 7 ski resorts and never seem to make the time to go (shame on me). So new years resolution #1 is to take the family skiing at least once a year.
Here is a beautiful picture of Deer Valley Ski Resort.
