First off, it is my birthday month. Which I celebrate all month. Honestly.
I like to make a big deal out of it. I am just always so grateful to be on this earth for another year. Why not celebrate?!? I try to do little things throughout the month that are special. A new candle that I've tucked away, breaking open a new bath soap, taking a leisurely bath instead of a quick shower, etc. are just some of the things that make my March a little more special.
This year is a big one. A really big one. A new decade. Somewhere between the 30th and 50th decades; ) I can honestly say that my feeling toward this one is, "Bring it on baby"! I am lucky to have some friends that are older than I am and they have done a wonderful job of preparing me well! Most of all, I am so grateful to be in the best shape of my life. Not being dramatic either people. I have never worked this hard on me...ever! And I am so glad that I have. I can go into this decade with a healthier lifestyle as well as a more fit self. (Side note: I am thinking that perhaps I should post a before and after photo as some point. Not sure if I am ready for that yet. Let me know if you want to see. That may be a little outside of my comfort zone, lol!) But, I am hoping to bring in this decade with a deeper appreciation for all of the things I have as well as an even more positive outlook than I currently have. Some days are just a drag, I just need to recover more quickly from them sometimes. At any rate, I am ready!
Hopefully you have found my blog today via Scrapbook Steals! If you have WELCOME! So happy to have you stop by. And to my three, new, recent followers...HI! I truly get a little bit of giddiness when I see my follower number increase. I know my blog isn't the most exciting thing ever but I do love sharing what I make and hopefully make even just one of you more inspired, or cheerier or hungrier (see some of my baking posts!)
Anyway, you know when something happens that just makes you so happy that you have to share it? That's how I feel today! I am honored to be the guest designer on the Scrapbook Steals Blog today. Kristy Lee was kind enough to ask me to design and I got to do so with It's the Little Things by Fancy Pants. What a gorgeous kit! I won't do a rewrite of what I said on the Scrapbook Steals blog but let's just say that crafting with this kit was so fun! I love the colors and the tones. Here are the projects that I made for the blog:
Well, since it is my birthday month I want to give away a gift to ONE OF YOU! Hooray! I've been wanting to do a giveaway for a while and these seems like the perfect opportunity.

Essentially it is a handy-dandy little tool that easily adds adhesive to the back of pretty much anything for you to stick on to your crafts. I love mine and I want you to love one too! All you have to do is leave a comment on this post along with a contact email address and I will pick a random winner! Please leave your comment no later than 11:59CST on Sunday, March 11th. I'd wait all the way until my birthday (on the 27th) but that is just too long to wait! If there is room in the shipping envelope, I may add some other goodies as well! I will see what I can fit!
