Reality, it is so much more interesting than happily ever after

It's about that time again! CHA is around the corner and the sneak peeks are starting! I love this time of year. It's just the spark I need to get back into the swing of things. I haven't had it in me to scrap the past two+ weeks. I'm hoping the mojo comes back since the new Label Tulip kit is on the way and it's gorgeous yet again.

Thanks for the continued emails/inquiries about Dawn and her daughter Lexi. I guess the best I can say is that they are doing as well as can be expected. Dawn is so strong. I admire her strength so much. And Lexi is her usual bundle of energy, but you can see she is starting to understand. Everytime I think about it I wish that there was more I could do. I'm praying for winter to go by quickly. It seems just so depressing and I think the spring weather will really help them. Being cooped up in the house isn't great for anyone.

Not sure if I posted this, but I am sitting this CHA out. I think this is the first show in three years that I'm not going to. I just feel like I should be around my family right now. And I'm doing a bit of reprioritizing as well. Got lots of plans in the works ;)

So the one sneak peek I can show you right now from Dream Street is the adverstisement that was in the January issue of Creating Keepsakes! It's on page 60 :) My collection is one of those three. Can you guess which one??? Let me first just say that the colors are WAY more saturated and gorgeous than they look in jpeg format in the mag. Thankfully, when they print in CMYK format for the paper, they look exactly like I planned them to ;)

So, which one is mine? Here's a hint. It's a little different for me, perhaps a little "softer". ;) ;)

I'm going to guess the one on the right. They're all gorgeous, though!

Alexis, keep hanging in there. I think you may be right about spring...I hope it comes soon!

As for the collection I guess Forever Family!

I'm hoping for some sunshine, too! I can't wait to hear about your plans!!! Also, I just wanted to let you know that I left you a little award on my blog because you are constantly inspiring me to create! :D Don't feel like you have to play along, I know these things can be annoying to pass on (LOL!), I just wanted to let you know that I think you are brilliant! Happy New Year!

I think we should set up a live webcam in the booth. But you have a Mac so it may not work for you ;)
