It was a quiet Saturday morning this morning. Two kids are up in the mountains this weekend with their youth group, and although I miss them, the house is much more calm and quiet with only two kids here. Hubby left for work early, and I had a few minutes to snuggle up in my covers with flickr, seeking Valentine's Day inspiration. Although the tree has been taken down and hauled to the curb, it is still Christmas everywhere else in my house. I like to put Valentine's Day up when Christmas comes down so I am gearing up for just that. If I see enough photos of old vintage valentines, candy, pink and red felt hearts, and other creative projects by the many talented people out there in the world of blogs, etc.....surely I will have enough inspiration and motivation to get out of bed and spend the few hours it is going to take to pack the rest of Christmas up and put all the pretties out for Valentine's Day!! right? I hope so.

Happy friends, I have returned from my long vacation from blogging. I thought it would be fitting to return on my birthday. Posting is a birthday present of sorts to myself, as I have been wanting to post again for some time. I have missed sharing my life through this blog, but have spent some well needed time focusing on family and adjusting to our move last summer to Fallbrook, CA. We spent many months having to go online in our office that is connected to a separate garage on the property, making it very inconvenient to do much on the computer. We have been saved from that now by the purchase of a laptop, which I am very grateful for. That's it for now, just wanted to share that I am still alive!! Thanks for being a part of my birthday celebration today! XXOOKristin

I stumbled upon this adorable picture on flickr...and wanted to share! Kristena of thimblythings.com cracked me up with her title on this photo...something to the effect of "pimping her fridge". As you can tell, she is one creative gal!! Scroll down on her blog to find a tutorial to make these sweet magnets. Seems she loves the color red~~ I girl after my own heart.

I attended my friend Sherry Salvato's annual ornament exchange Sunday night. Here is a look at the ornament I made this time. What a fun Christmas tradition!! I brought 20 wrapped ornaments and came home with everyone's ornament. I love to start thinking about this and planning what I will make. This year I thought about my overabundance of sheet music I have for crafting and that settled it! Hope to post some house pictures soon.... it is getting very Christmas-y in there!! Kristin
