I'm back with a big thank you and welcome Penny to blog land!

I haven't been around for quite a while. The end of 2011 was tough. It was busy, and hard, and not very fun.

But, 2012 is already looking up. I pray that things continue to go on the better and brighter path.

Because I was having a hard time the past few months, I wasn't feeling very crafty. The few craft projects I did, I really didn't feel like blogging.

New Year, new outlook! I FINALLY got around to making some much needed Christmas thank you cards. I was very inspired by Nichole Heady's card here. I love that little penguin!

This is what I came up with:

I loved Nichole's card design. It is really versatile and I can see myself using it often.

My oldest son, DJ, is going to be losing his tooth any time now. He is really excited....and so am I. I remember when I was little I had a special pillow that I put my tooth in. It was pink and frilly and very special. I wanted to do something similar for my sons, minus the frill. Thanks to Pinterest, I was inspired to make a tooth pillow for DJ's tooth.

I'm not much of a sewer, but I think it turned out cute. And, I hope that he will look back on losing his teeth and remember this little tooth pillow.

And one more thing. Please welcome Penny to the blogging world! She has just created her first blog post with some ADORABLE tags. She is also generously giving some amazing blog candy to celebrate her new blog!

Thanks so much for stopping by and happy, healthy, and prosperous 2012!
