At last ... my first post of 2012!

Hi there!

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and New Year!  Unfortunately it was a bit of a 'sick' one in our household and I am only now getting a chance to sit at my craft table!  It was also my first Christmas season working so things were pretty hectic and disorganized!  Hopefully with the boys back at school on Monday normal scheduling will resume!!

Anyways, I finally got to put together my first calendar page ... woohoo!!  My lovely friend, Sheena, had her other half make these gorgeous calendar stands for me.  I'm so thrilled with them as I have been dying to participate with my friend, Christine, in making these beautiful calendar pages each month.  So although this first page is pretty simple, I love how it's turned out and Edwin on his toboggan is a perfect image for January in Ottawa!!

Here's a close up of the image and page ... the top panel is embossed with a snowflake embossing folder.  Edwin is coloured with copics and cut out.  The calendar page I found here.

Thanks for stopping in today and huge apologies for my severe lack of posts recently.  Also, some news to share is that I have stepped down from my DT position with the Winter Wonderland Challenge  Blog.  My new work commitments are just leaving my crafting time so depleted right now but hopefully my mojo and energy levels will return back to normal soon and I'll find time to at least participate in a few challenges.  I hope you're all enjoying your weekend!
