Well CHA is over. Hopefully one day I'll have the opportunity to make it to one of the shows. Everybody always look like they're having a great time. I have spend most of the morning watching videos on Youtube checking out all the new goodies that will be available in the upcoming months. I have the top 3 things that I just can't wait to get my hands one.

1. My absolute #1 the new dies and embossing folders that Tim Holtz did for sizzix. I have made a pre-order of these already. Could not take the chance of them being sold out. Pre-ordered from

Here are the ones I pre-ordered:

2. The new hands free embossing and cutting system for the Slice. I have not pre-ordered yet. Still looking to see who's offering the best price. Definitely going to do it sometime next week.

3. The new 13 inch mat for the cuttlebug, the new embossing plus folders and the 12 inch embossing folders. I'm on the fence whether I want to pre-order or wait until they are available at one of the crafting stores.

Ofcoarse there were some very cute lines of paper, embellishments and stamps but I'm really going to try to use what I already have in my stash. I have so many things that are not even out of the packages or stamps that have seen any ink.

What are you guys most excited about?

Storage tip #1

I'm really big into organizing. In fact I organize my craft room more than I actually scrap. I want to do a compilation of videos showing you some of the ways that I organize and store products. Some of these tips I've seen online and some I have come up with on my own.

Here is the first video.

Here is a pic of what it looks like on my Expedit.

All is well. Just have been very busy with the Holidays and the new baby. He's doing terrific. He's a good little eater. Nursing is going great. He's 12 pounds now. The doctor is amazed by the amount of weigh he's gaining. He's aslo 22.5 inches. My niece that's 6 weeks older than him came to visit and he's so much bigger. It's actually quite funny. By two pounds. I used to be able to get a lot done with one hand but not anymore. I either have to wait until hubby gets home or let him cry it out a bit. I feel so bad, but sometimes is what I have to do. He loves his mommy and he does not like being too far from me for too long. Sleeping is going OK. We still get up a couple of times during the night but he goes to sleep quicker and quicker every time and he doesn't nurse for quite as long, hopefully soon he'll start sleeping through the night. Trust me, mommy needs it.

We all had a wonderful Christmas. Got very spoiled this year. My hubby bought me a Gypsy. Love that thing. It's so convenient. He also got me a 19 inch flat screen tv for my craft room. It's awesome. Now I can watch my shows and scrapbook.

Isabella got a computer and a Nintendo DS. Hardly get to see her or talk to her. She's too busy playing with all of her new toys.

Jayden got lots of diapers and wipes. So happy about that. We sure do appreciate them.

I'll be back soon with a short video I made with the Gypsy.
