With CHA right around the corner, I wanted to share some of the new goodies from Heidi Grace and Cloud 9 (both divisions of Fiskars). This is just a little snippet, as there are many more products being released, but this should give you a little taste! We plan on carrying these collections at The Scrap Coop, so keep your eye out...
BTW, these are displays that I created for the show-

I just came across this quote earlier today, and it is soooooo true! It has been a rough day for me...I havn't been feeling well lately, and it seems that the workload and the stress has been heavy lately! It seems that I barely got Christmas over with, and then the work started to come in for the CHA Winter Show. I think I will be really glad when the show is past and things settle down a bit. I can tell you though, that there is some awesome new product coming, and I will share some of it with you as soon as I am able. I have reached an all time max this past few weeks... I think I have created more scrapbook pages and projects in one months time than I have previously created in a whole year! It has been crazy, but despite the stress, there have been moments of enjoyment! I love getting into that creative zone... I am also starting some new projects for the new Making Memories book, so it doesn't look like there is an end in sight! I do love the work though...don't get me wrong, but Kate is starting to get to that really "needy" stage. She can't do much on her own, but yet she is getting old enough to realize that just sitting down in her Bumbo is not really exciting. My left arm is going to be BUFF though...I hold her in my left arm and scrapbook with my right while standing...LOL! And to top it all off, Lily is getting really curious, and I can hardly keep her out of my scrapbooking supplies...she digs through drawers and even pulls them out and crawls up them to reach higher ground...what a kid! I am planning on making a quick dash to the CHA show in Anaheim this coming weekend, and you would think I would be excited... but alas, I am not. I sometimes feel such stress from being a mommy, but the last thing I can stand to do is leave my kids. I think that I must be really old fashioned, but I think that if you make the choice to have children, they should be your priority, and I just feel a little guilty when I go away. So now, rather than being stressed about being a mom, I am stressing about leaving my "mom" position for a few days. I am such a bad bad stresser (thanks a lot DAD!). I am looking forward to getting the trip over with, and coming home and enjoying a get-a-way (with the kids) to the cabin in Island Park.
And on a lighter note, I have been wanting to take some photos of Kate in her Gymboree bunny outfit, but I keep putting it off... i finally got around to it today inbetween projects (I figured that she would grow out of it if I didn't hurry!). I know I'm her mommy and everything, but isn't she so dang sweet?!?!
