Happy New Year's Eve and a(nother) announcement!

Happy New Year's Eve my friends!
I hope you all have fun plans for this evening? I am making a huge dinner for a party of 8 - oh wait, that's just my immediate family. lol! Actually we are doing a fun buffet of hors d'oeuvres, a bowl of punch for the kiddos, pina coladas for DH and I, and relaxing all day long. My DS' godfather is a coach at Navy so we will be cheering them on in their Bowl Game (I know, we're Army...tsk tsk), and lots of catching up on some crafting time for me!
Yesterday I was supposed to let you in on my fun new venture, I thought I would spill the deets today instead!
I am starting up a new and fun challenge site:

I am so excited! I want this to be a challenge yourself sort of site, push you to try something new, open that machine/stamp set/spool of ribbon/tool that you bought last year and never used. It's a new year and the perfect time for us to unleash our creativity. Of course I will be right there with you, as I tend to shy away from new techniques out of my comfort zone. The first set of challenges will be sponsor free, but February will bring some fun prizes for the weekly winners. And each week, the winner will receive a fun badge stating that you are a Guest Bar-Tender. (Get it? lol...)
So come on over and be a follower, the first challenge will begin on January 15th - I hope to see you there! I am also looking for 2 more friends to join the DT (January-April) so please email me at I will be in contact with the 2 new designers on Monday January 4th.
Thank you so much ladies! You can hop over to the challenge blog HERE - I made it very happy and bright. :D
Happy New Year everyone!
Love and Aloha
