New Catalog - Blog Hop

Hello! I guess you could say, I've been on a very long crafting and blogging hiatus!  It has been hard since this  is a much needed outlet for me! I'm really looking forward to joining a group of creative friends doing a monthly blog hop. It will give me an excuse to create something new and blog about it too. Woot! Woot!

Inspiration makes me giddy, leaving me feeling refreshed and excited! Sometimes it is the photos you take, the projects you make, or even sharing about your day. I hope you will find some of that here to make your day a little brighter and inspired! Now, let's get to the good stuff...

For my first project, I am featuring some really exciting products...Psst... some of them are from the new catalog...which you can order from TODAY!!!! WOOT!!! WOOT!!! Okay, I might use that word a lot, but it's really exciting stuff!!!

So this is the part where my sweet husband brought me warm homemade cookies and milk. Seriously! They were amazing, only problem... my laptop decided it wanted my milk more than I did! Yep! Sniff! Sniff! All of my pictures and items to finish out my blog post... on the laptop. Sigh! So we have scheduled an appoinment with the computer doctor and I'm crossing my fingers that we can save it! I will keep you posted! If it survives, I will have more pictures to post later! Feeling lucky that it saved the first picture for you, otherwise, it would be a really sad morning. Well... it's still a little sad...but I'm trying to be optimistic! Part 2 - My Husband and the computer doctor saved the day!!! Yay!!! Computer is not doing so hot but they were able to back up my work from the last few days! Woot! Woot! LOL! 

For my second project, I am really excited to show you one of the new MDS Project Life Kits. Oh my filled with goodness! These kits have so many options and things you can do to make really FUN digital projects or even print parts to add to your handmade cards, etc. 

Here is an invite I made! Of course, for safety purposes I have changed the "real" address of the event but you get the idea. Hope you enjoy!

I've included a little sample of some of the designs and cards from the kit I used to make my invite. If you click on the image, it will take you to all the Project Life MDS items available. 

I hope you all have a wonderful day! Please let me know what you think about the projects!

Now... off to your next adventure!
