I am embarassed to say that this is my first post of 2010 - it's already the 20th of January!  I wanted to let you know that I have some great things coming your way this year.  What are they?  Glad you asked!

First of all, I am going to be doing a "Paper Collection of the Month".  I'm one of those paper hoarders that buys everything in bulk!  Very rarely do I buy just a few sheets of a paper line.  That means I use a single paper line for multiple projects... and now I'll be sharing those projects with you all in one place!  I'm hoping you'll be able to take away an idea or two for how to use the same papers in different ways - be it on a mini album, a full 12x12 layout, cards, tags, mat sets, handmade embellishments... the list goes on and on. 

The January Paper Collection of the Month is Wisteria by Basic Grey.  I'll be posting my projects soon, so check back. Future Paper Collections of the Month will include: Nana's Kids Baby Boy by DCWV, Wild Saffron by K&Company, and Classic K Margo - also by K&Company.  And those are just a few!

I'm also hoping to re-organize my scrap area throughout the year, and will be sharing my progress and my organizational tips with you as I go.  And since I also have plans to relocate my scrap space, this could be very interesting (and messy!).  I hope you'll follow me throughout the year as I share these project ideas and tips with you.  Of course, I'll still be posting lots of photos of my eBay projects and custom orders, too.

So, I might be off to a late start, but - HEY - It's still a start!  Here's to the New Year! 

Smiles and Scraps,
