Asleep by 9pm. That’s how we rang in the New Year in this house…and it was wonderful. With a new baby in the house, things were a little different this year. No champagne. No ball drop. No late night partying. Just sleep. Sweet, beautiful sleep.

For me the New Year is more about setting goals and getting busy making dreams happen! I’ve got lots on the horizon for 2015 and I can’t wait to share everything with you in the coming months. Once exciting, upcoming project is my entry into the final round of the Cricut Design Space Star Challenge! You may remember THIS post from a few weeks ago. Well – it WON and put me the running to win a $10,000 grand prize.

Along with four other bloggers, I am competing in this final challenge. We are each transforming a space in our home with projects made with the Cricut Explore. I’ve already gotten started and if you want to see a few sneaks along the way, be sure you staying in the loop on Facebook and Instagram. Wish me luck and stay tuned for the full reveal on January 28th.

And in the name of exciting projects in 2015, I want to send some special love to my dear friend Susan Opel who was the former Creative Editor of Paper Crafts Magazine, which has now closed it’s doors. Susan has moved on to an awesome opportunity hosting the My Favorite Things Challenge & Inspiration blog. I am a big fan of My Favorite Things and use their goods on the regular. You should definitely check out this new blog and participate each week!

Happy New Year, friends and I’ll see you very soon with more crafty goodness!

Keep on crafting with these other posts
