Once again I used my Just Rite Stampers to create a personalized monogram - using the "from the desk of" circle. I also cut a 3 1/4" square to use as a guide to place the post its.

Last year I saw the cutest Post It Note holder at a friends house. Of course, I immediately got all the needed supplies and did - NOTHING. Well, tonight I pulled everything out and decided to finally make one. Wow - these are so easy! Besides paper and post it notes, I bought some acrylic frames that are 4 x 6, with the holder being on the longest side.

I participate in a "card of the month" program in one of my on-line groups. I decided to do something a bit different this month rather than my typical card - bookplate stickers.

Sometime within the past year, I ordered a pack of the Urban Prairie paper from Basic Grey. I got the coordinating rub ons, brads, and buttons too as well as the 6x6 pad of paper. I anxiously awaited its arrival, then promptly forgot about it as soon as I placed in the closet along with all my other paper.

When I saw this ribbon at Big Lots in the holiday section several months ago, I knew that I wanted to use it on a monogram card.My LSS began carrying the line of Just Rite Stampers which are perfect to use on monograms. New Years Day I was able to "play" the whole day, never getting out of my PJ's. I created a few cards for a friend.

It's been awhile since I experienced a year that I was more than ready to see sail off into the sunset, but 2008 was that kind of year for me. So much CHANGE:
- Moving: what started out as looking for land in Middle TN to eventually build our dream home on when we retired turned into falling in love with a house on 5 acres, buying it, and moving NOW.
- Job: since we moved, I had to quit my job of 19 years and begin the search for a new one. It took several stressful months.
- Insane hours at work: new job required extremely long hours, 7 days a week during the fall (thus no blog post for months!).
Pix above is my new blackberry storm phone which I love. I can keep up with my email and text with my grandkids. Here's to hoping 2009 is a fabulous year!
