Happy new year!

What a way to start off the new year... with nothing to post!

It's been a busy few weeks of the start of the year. I'm sick to boot. But I have had a couple freelance projects (logos) to work on, which I will post soon.

So, I have not even opened my letterpress. I had great big things planned for that baby. I am so disappointed in myself! Really, though, I have no room for crafting or projects that are not done on the computer. :( I need some space. My office is awesome now - which is our old guest bedroom (I have a window again!), but there is still a full size mattress and boxspring leaning against the wall and pretty much taking up a lot of the room. It needs to go (into the garage). But in order for that to happen, we need to clean out the garage. But in order for that to happen, we need to build a shed for our backyard to store some of the crap in the garage. But in order for that to happen, we need to purchase and buy the materials for the shed (probably a $900 investment - I hope no more than that). But in order for that to happen... I really could go on and on... you see how this works?

Anyway, I plan to break it out soon. I need to make thank you cards for Liam and my birthdays from LAST MONTH. They will happen by the end of the month. Mark my words!!!

I also just printed my most favorite photo of all time that I took - a gorgeous shot of the Pacific Coast Highway when we drove it back in 2008:

I printed it 20"x30" (I had a code for $20 credit for Shutterfly and only paid $9 for the print and shipping!) and want to frame it somehow. I was thinking of mounting it on a canvas (modpodge?) and painting the edges gold... but unfortunately they do not make a pre-stretched canvas that size. Now I have to think of another alternative. I don't want a matt. Not sure...maybe a thin frame if anything. Just not cheap-o looking.
