Below we get a little up close and personal...

This Superman logo is actually made with retired
Close To My Heart Christmas paper!

Look who's Dotty for Batman! Yes indeed, the Batman logo was also created using
This time using the retired Dotty paper

Both images we created using the retired Batman and the Superman Cricut Cartridges. (obviously I am on a 'retired' kick)

So now what?

Backup Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo revels true passion is Scrapbooking!


During the post game interview Sunday evening Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo revealed his true passion is capturing the team’s best moments into handmade scrapbooks. “I’ve been a paper scrapper since I was 11. I’ve been addicted for more than a decade now,” Garoppolo said. “I tried digital scrapping in 2011 after looking through a Simply Simple Scrapbooks special edition mag about digital techniques, but I’m a paper scrapbooker at heart. Paper is the jet fuel that pumps through my veins.”
When asked about his process for completing a page Garoppolo went on to explain, “Usually I have a few pictures in mind when I start my design process. The page starts to speak to me, and tells me how to best showcase pictures in a visually pleasing way that connects emotionally. My favorite page this year is when Tommy first arrived back a training camp,” Garoppolo said with smile and reminiscent glare in his eyes.
Though Belichick declined to comment on the subject, reports from personnel inside the locker room  indicate the coach sets aside 30 minutes at the end of each practice to just sit back and flip through the pages with the team, reminiscing and laughing about all the fun times they’ve shared.

Symbol of 2016: !

As 2015 was winding down to an end I was reflecting over the last few years and thinking about my personal growth. Was I where I wanted to be?

Simple answer; I was not.

While I have had some notable achievements here and there nothing was quite hitting the mark.  I was not spending enough time in my 'happy place'. It seems over the last few years I have been neglecting the needs of someone very special to me...ME!

It hit me like a ton of bricks!!! I needed to make some immediate changes! I needed to go back to my Happy Roots!! I needed to go back to all things Close To My Heart!!!

Well there it mantra, my calling for 2016.

But I needed a symbol, something that reflects my feelings, my goals and my life changing aspirations for 2016...

And voila! It had been staring at me all along!


The symbol that represents everything I am and want to be!!!

Welcome 2016!!!
