Hello crafty friends. I have been away from my blog longer then expected this year. With family and friends coming over the last few weeks, I honestly don’t know how we did it all. It was a beautiful time but a busy one with a sigh of relief at the end. I literally woke up this weekend and realized that there wasn’t anything to do, no where to go and nothing to cook. Wow! What a great feeling!
On a personal note, during Christmas break I went to the dentist for a yucky toothache. The side of my face started to swell up like a chipmunk and I was in a lot of pain. I have a horrible infection in one of my molars. The dentist packed my tooth with antibiotics and I go back to the dentist on the 9th for a root canal. I am in a lot of pain and feel horrible. Every step I take seems to make my mouth hurt. So I have fallen behind with all my work and crafty things. This is sooo not like me as I literally bounce off the wall with energy everyday.
With that said, I have not announced the design team yet. We have had an amazing outturn of designers applying. I did not realize that there were so many talented designers and the process has taken me way longer than I thought. I appreciate and cannot thank you enough for the love, support, kind words and inspiration that you have sent us. We typically write personal notes to each of the designers but this year unfortunately with over 75 applicants we will only be announcing the new designers on our blog. I hope to have this done by next week.
This year my husband turned a big 40. Instead of having a birthday party or going away on a trip we decided to purchase a boat. Wow! What a decision. We travelled along the Great Barrier Reef for a few days and took out family members to go snorkeling. Here are a few photos of our trip. I hope you enjoy them.

We will be back later today with a few of our January release items! It is going to be a great 2014! Can’t wait to share!
