New loot!

Gosh, I feel like I've been MIA because I missed a few days of blogging:) I've been busy buying gluten free/casein free foods and getting Lowell going on his new diet. It's going well so far. He's actually eating better than he did before!

Last night I took a much needed breather and scrapbooked with a friend for several hours. I worked on this cute little First Year pocket book mini album. It has been the most popular album that I sell. The pockets from kids clothing are a nice touch:)

I was very excited to get back checking blogs today since the 4th week of the Artist's Way has ended, hence we can read again!! I knew that the Craft and Hobby Association winter show was held in Las Vegas this past weekend and was excited to see what new products were released from my favorite scrapbook companies. Ali has lots of the latest dish and pics on her blog. One thing I've been waiting for that are now posted on their web site is the new paper lines from Basic Grey. So here ya go! The color me silly line is wonderfully whimsy, bright and cheery. Hang 10 is a very, very cool, masculine looking line. I'm absolutely adoring the baby girl line. All I can say about the urban couture line is.. wow!! I cannot wait to see these in the stores:) I was also super excited to see that Claudine Hellmuth now has a line of scrapbooking papers. Can this get any better? I have always admired her altered art work. If you were ever into paper dolls, this Poppet line is a must!! As always, lots to look forward to seeing (and buying!). Projects are already brewing in my mind. What a great pick-me-up!!

Wishing I could go gluten free as I have been advised that it is an issue so often. Being on the lookout for wheat sounds like a full time job in itself. I got my daughter into doing scraping and she really loves it; will send her your url so she can check out the mini book.
