Happy New Year's!

I hope your 2012 has begun well - ours is finally on track, I think!  Our little boys are starting to feel better and we are easing back into our schedule.  I even wrote our Christmas letter finally (this year it will be called a New Year's letter).  I have some things to post, but we are supposedly cleaning right now and as you can tell I'm not getting much done!  :)

Make sure that you come on by Scrapping Everyday Miracles for our January challenge - dreams!  Here's what the challenge is about:  New year -- God has blessed us with yet another year to realize our dreams, our hopes, our aspirations. My bucket list changes every year. Some dreams I've already realized, some are still a work in progress, some I'm still praying for.

"And the LORD answered me, and said,
Write the vision, and make it plain upon tables,
that he may run that readeth it. For the vision is yet for an appointed time,
but at the end it shall speak, and not lie:
though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry."
Habakkuk 2:2-3

So the challenge is to scrap about a dream. It can be one you've already realized like finally traveling to that one place you've always dreamed about going. It can be a work in progress like maybe saving up for a new house or a dream vacation. Or it can be one you're still waiting for. Whatever it may be we encourage you this month to ponder upon it and scrap it!

Scrap twist: Use the word "dream" on your project. You can use it on the title or the background but it has to be visible on your project ;)
There is an amazing prize from a wonderful etsy store:  This month's sponsor, Monika, is offering one lucky winner a $20 gift certificate to her Etsy shop ILOVEITALL.

Make sure you check out her shop I'm sure you will have fun shopping there!  In fact, use the coupon code ILOVEITALL for a 15% discount on your purchases from Monika's shop.
