Happy Belated New Year!

yeah, I'm a day late I know. Yesterday we all slept in which is very unusual...I guess the dreary day made it possible. I finished up some scrappy projects and then started where I left off (before the holiday madness) in the organization/purging process of the new "scrappy space". So far I have a nice bag of stickers to take to the before/after school program run at the local primary school. This afternoon I'd like to sort through my stash of papers and donate some of those to the school too.

The sun is finally shining so I hope to get photographs of all my DT projects, do the writeups, and get them sent out this afternoon too. Can't wait to share with you all. Reveal day has been moved to the 5th of January.

Speaking of DT projects have you seen the previews of the February kits over at Coordinates Collections? They are called Heart & Soul and are now available for pre-order. I always love when they get a name; the monthly name contest is always SO fun. It finally gives life to the kits that we've worked hard in putting together (some months are harder than others when we find product isn't available and have to go back to the drawing board :wink:)

Here they are....

The inspiration for Heart came from the "Bullseye" paper from the Pink Paislee Cupid Collection. As soon as I saw this paper back in the summer I told Jamie & Lisa that we had to do a kit using that piece as our jumping off point...Love those polka dots and the colors. Mix in a little Bobunny, some more Pink Paislee, and a dash of American Crafts & Basic Grey. Naturally this is the kit I picked. Hopefully it will be arriving on m y doorstep by next weekend.

Then we like to do a kit that is a nice contrast to the other kit offered. When we saw the new Basic Grey Origins we knew we had our inspiration for the 2nd kit...Soul! Mix together some Basic Grey, Jillibean Soup, a bit of Maya Road, and a dash or two of Daisy Bucket & Doodlebug and you end up with another fanatstic kit. So different yet just as fabulous as Heart.

So I'm off to take some pictures and organize/purge some more.

The new kits look scrummy Jen, I can't help but be drawn to the green and blue one, so my colours. Must look out for that new BG line. Have a great day scrapping and sorting! My room is a tip as usual, putting off cleaning it, as usual!
