Are you filled with love?

Stampin' Up! has a really fun Valentine's promotion going right now. Not only can you get free buttons, you can also buy a special pack of paper that is ALL red and pink! I don't know about you guys but I would buy the pink and red paper pack all year round. I love it!

Isn't it cute?

Because I just couldn't help myself, I also made some little Ghirardelli boxes with the same basic design,

I think this will actually be the club's non-card project this month, which will also be my last month with this club :(

I used:
*Love Patterns Designer Paper Pack
* Tiny Tags Stamp Set
* Real Red ink
* Real Red, Pink Pirouette, Crumb Cake, and Whisper White card stock
* Scalloped Heart of Hearts Embosslits Die
* Scalloped Ribbon Border Punch, Full Heart Punch, Jewelry Tag Punch
* White crochet thread (non SU!)

Happy Birthday Dad!

Wow. I knew it had been a long time since I last blogged but I didn't realize my last post was before Thanksgiving! I am soooo lame.

Well, I hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Years. I know I did.

And LOTS has been happening. Life is crazy.

Lets see, Josh (my husband) was offered a new job in Utah right before Thanksgiving. He started the job right after Thanksgiving. He comes home on the weekends (usually) and together we've been wondering why the house is a) not packed  b) not clean or c) not rented or sold and d) where we might live if/when we move. It's been awesome. 
My parents came for 2 weeks over Christmas and in that time my father fixed and painted everything, my mother and I packed and cleaned and then miraculously we rented the house and found a super duper cute house to rent.
It looks like we'll be moving to Eagle Mountain Utah (if all goes as planned, which never happens) next Saturday, January 15th. AHHHHH!!!!!!

I'm not usually a fan of lengthy wordy posts because I know you're all only interested in the pictures so I'll get to it!
And let me start by wishing my father a happy birthday and thanking him for being born in January. His birthday (January 12th) always marks the time when I really need to get back into the swing of things, when Christmas break is officially over. Thanks Dad, you're the best.
Happy Birthday.
Also, thanks for coming during your vacation and working to fix my house up the entire time. You're amazing!

With moving there are a lot of very sad things. One of them is saying goodbye to my son's wonderful 1st grade teacher. Here is the Christmas gift I made for her. It's a box of 10 simple thank you cards.

I hope she likes them. We'll sure miss her.

Because I was in a bit of a time crunch this Christmas, and I was a little bit sick of Christmas cards by then anyway, here is the picture that was the front of our cards this year. I thought it captured the essence of the Holiday pretty well!

I had to include this one too because it's just so darn cute!

Oh, and on an end note. My Maggie turned 2 on the 29th and got a hair cut too.
I know I know, she's the cutest thing in the world.

More stamping to come soon!
