It's my Birthday

Another year older and wiser... at age 47 (yikes that sounds old - that is so pushing 50) .  I am blessed with a fantastic husband, loving sons, caring family & dear friends.  That really is what matters in life.  I can't wait to move at the end of the month.  We'll have double the space & I'm treating that as my HUGE b'day gift this year. 

Today while checking my blog email I see something from Bobbie at Simply Renee (the Clip it Up people).  Last week they had a giveaway & I left a comment.  Well it seems I was the winner of 2 hanging Clip it Up products!  I'm so excited since today is my birthday I'm thinking of it as a fantastic gift.  I chose the hanging one & the swing out one.  They will be perfect for my new scraproom.  Their blog has some great topics - not just organization (yes that is there) but lots of techniques & tutorials.  Here's the link if you'd like to check it out.

These are really going to solve a lot of storage/organization issues I have.  Thanks Bobbie & Simply Renee

Now for some updates....

Everything Scrapp'n will be blog hopping a day early this month. We usually hop on the 14th of every month but Heather thought that since it's Valentine's Day & most of us will be snuggling up to our honey we'd post on the 13th. So remember to check back then for inspiration & a chance to win a great prize with just a comment.

Have you entered the Monthly Challenge at Everything Scrapp'n? The topic is "Show the Love" in honor of Valentine's Day I wanted you to do a layout focusing on loved ones.... Here's all the details - remember to post by 11:59 on Feb 7th for your chance to win a $20 gift certificate to Everything Scrapp'n Online Store.

Speaking of challenges... I posted the February Monthly Challenges over on the Paperclipping Forum.  I hope you will join us.  There are some great topics to get your creative juices flowing & the winner will be spotlighted in the newsletter that is read by scrappers all over the world - it's like being "published".

Speaking of Paperclipping. have you been listening to the Roundtable?  I can't believe there are 5 shows already.  Noell Hyman (of Paperclipping) & Nancy Nally (of Scrapbook Update) are the dynamic duo of information.  The shows are so packed with great info, guest celebrity scrapper insights, & keeping us in the know about everything scrapbooking.  I love that it's an audio show as I can listen while I'm checking email, blogging, or scrapbooking.

Well that's all I have for now... hope you have a fantastic day!
