happy new year (a little late)

hi there!  just wanted to wish everyone a very belated Happy New Year!  how is yours going, one week into 2013?  ours began in Northern California, on a trip to see the Redwood Forest.  we rang in New Year's morning with a very sick little Mr. Bagubian. and it just seems that we've all been sick ever since.  some vacation!

i won't go into details, though let me just say that the last week hasn't been very fun for any of us but, knock on wood, i think we might be coming out of it now.  i sure hope so.  Little #2 is due in two months and there's so much to start thinking about!  2 months will go by very quickly and there are still many, many things i want to do before that.  but until we're all recovered from the holidays, our road trip, and illnesses, i'm just going to take it one day at a time.

looking ahead...i'm still determined to share my Christmas cards with you, so that will be coming in a future post.  i just got the new Crate Paper Valentine's Day collection, Fourteen, to play with, too, so i'm super-excited about working with that!  and, i'll have some new Valentine-themed items going up in the Etsy shop very soon, as well.  i don't want to get all ambitious on you right now and make promises i can't keep...especially with the way things have been going around here lately.  but i will definitely try and pop in here more frequently over the next few weeks.  

before i go, there are a couple of things i want to mention.  i'm having an after Christmas sale at the Etsy shop so be sure to check it out!  i've got some holiday-themed cards, clothespins, twine, and kits on sale--no coupon needed! 

these two holiday gift wrap kits, Cheers and Season's Greetings, were recent additions to the shop and are now on sale for only $4.00 each!  get a jump on next year's packaging supplies...OR, use the red twine and red mini clothespins for Valentine's Day this year!

and, speaking of Crate Paper earlier...it looks to be a week of new collection reveals over on their blog.  head on over and check them out! trust me, you are going to LOVE the new lines!

okay, guys, i'm going to go CREATE!  i am determined to make 2013 a year of creativity and sharing.  i hope you'll join me in creating and i'd love for you to share with me what YOU create!


  1. Oh, I hope you're feeling better! What a crummy way to start the year.

    I can't wait to see what you make using Fourteen... it's such a beautiful collection!

    1. Thanks, Meredith! Feeling better, thank you. I just started following your blog, too--your work is so beautiful!
