Happy New Year from our family to yours! :)

Hope you had a wonderful Christmas and a very Happy New Year! Here is the holiday card we sent out this year. May you have a great year ahead!!

Edited to Add:


Last year I posted my top cards of the year, so thought I'd do something similar again this year. You can see my top picks from last year HERE. I didn't make as much as I'd hoped this year, especially after having the baby, but I still wanted to share them with you. :) So here are some of my top projects of 2011 in no particular order. A lot of the insides are decorated too. If you click on the links, it will take you to the post!

The Mother's Day card I made for my mom. I included a picture of my sonogram inside!

Last years's Valentine's Day card for my hubby. The inside says " my favorite thing to do!"

Another card for my hubby. The original post is HERE.

 This was a blog hop card. It was fun making the Tiny Tags into a thought bubble!

A gift set for my Aunt using PTI patterned papers. The original post is HERE.

The Lunchbox Note die, my favorite die! It was fun playing with the Postmarks set in a more CAS way.
The original post is HERE.

Another lunchbox note card using the "Est. 1776" stamp set. I decorated the inside and back of the card too. 
The original post is HERE.

I made this mini card for a friend using the Mat Stack 3 die and Floral Fusion 1. 
It was also fun finding ways to use the seed packet die too!
The original post is HERE.

I made these invitations for my baby shower. The original post is HERE.

This is the card I made shortly after I found out I was pregnant! :)
It was early spring and I liked the symbolism of renewal.

Thanks very much for checking out my top projects for 2011. I'm very sorry for the delay in getting this posted, but thanks for stopping by! I really appreciate you reading my blog. Creativity has been a bit harder to come by with a little one in the house now, but I will try to have more crafty things up soon. :) Have a sunny day!

A Muse is having several sales on many of their products, including their inks. Just thought I'd share with you what those are in case you might be interested. There are some great deals going on throughout December! :)

All 20% OFF THROUGH DEC. 15th
A Muse Studio has discounted ten popular items (including some inks) just in time for the holidays! A Muse is offering 20 percent off the following items (click the photo to enlarge) for a limited time only.

One of the items on sale is their holiday ink collection. If you order all 10 inks in the collection, you will receive 20 percent off! This can be a great way to try out some of the inks. The colors are: Winter Sky, Cranberry, French Roast, Slate, Pebble, Grass, Fern, Eucalyptus, Lichen and Blush. This is a great deal and the first time A Muse has had a sale on their inks!

Some other great sale items are the shimmer spray (beautiful!) and the washi tapes (very versatile colors and designs), along with 7 other sale items too!

Click on the photo above to enlarge or a PDF of the info is also available HERE.

Hurry, because the sale on the inks and all the top 10 must-haves ends on December 15th!!

A Muse Studio is also having a sale on five of their stamp sets and some of the cardstock. The CS colors this month are especially beautiful! You get 5 colors (Cocoa, Toffee, Cranberry, Shell and Bermuda), 4 of each for only $7.65. It's a great way to try out several colors of the cardstock. A Muse paper is wonderful, with color on one side and white on the back, perfect for cardmaking!

A Muse Studio also just announced their stamps retirement list from the 2011 Main Catalog. For a complete list of retiring stamps sets, please click the photo below to enlarge, or view the PDF by clicking HERE.

The Holiday Catalog will have some items retiring also, but A Muse has decided to not reveal which items those might be in advance. So if you see something you like in it, buy it NOW, because it may be retiring and items in it are first come, first served. We won't know which items will carry over until the new catalog is revealed Feb. 1, 2012.

One last bit of info, the special A Muse consultant starter kit, which is a FANTASTIC deal for only $99 (worth $350) will expire on December 31, 2011. Then it will be regular price and some items in the kit may be changing. Sign up now before the deal ends! I would love for you to sign up as a consultant with my team, even if you would just like the starter kit or if you are interested in a more active business too. Just send me an email, and I'll provide you with more info to get you started!

If you would like to order any of the A Muse Studio sale products mentioned above, they are available for sale from my web store here:
