HAPPY NEW YEAR!



Happy New Year Everyone!


Sweet Birthday Invite...


...my daughter's birthday is next month...we have been working out the details for this party...what do you know - it's a crafting party.  Here is her invite, I hope the girls like it.  She loves it!  I can't wait to blog about the awesome cake we have orders....it's a 12 inch round cake, get this - in zebra stripe with a hot pink boa make out of icing.  And the goodie bags are really cute too!
I love having a girl - well, most days :)

I love going to the Farmer's Market!




Today the family and I went out the to the Farmer's Market in South Austin...it takes about 25 mins to get there but today it was worth it.  They all enjoyed it and I think we got something for everyone...organic breads, fruits and veggies.  We also got some really yummy kettle corn, and cup cakes.  

OK, you all know that I love cupcakes.  This is a new small company.  She make this cute little peppermint cupcake with a cute little snowflake on top...I will try them out and let you know what I think.  She was new at the Farmer's Market and currently she doesn't have a website, but they do deliver in the Austin area...

VACTION TIME!!!

Whoooohooooo!  I'm officially on vacation until Jan 5th...
I'm so super excited!!!
Last year at this time I made two foolish goals:  1.  Drink at least one glass of wine everyday.  2.  To wear sweats everyday...yeah and guess what, I gained about 10 pounds and could barely fit back into my work clothes when it was time to go back to work.  With all that said, I've come up with a new vacation goals this year:
     1.  Create at least 4 new stationary designs
     2.  Get out and do something with the kids...as much as possible
     3.  Read a good book
     4.  Organize desk area!!!!
     5.  Try something new
     6.  Blog daily
We will see how it goes this year...
