Happy New Year!

Wow, it's been over a month since I last posted.  Time sure flies.  I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all!  I have to tell you although I was a good girl all year Santa didn't really bring me any goodies to play with:(  Best that I buy what I want anyway.  I hope Santa was good to all of you.

Quick little update since my last post.  I have added to my family once again! I have an 11 week old puppy running around the house!  She is a yellow lab and was the best decision I made to give Nala (my chocolate lab who turns 1 this week) a friend to play with!  She is keeping me hopping!  Unfortunately, I put my 14 year old lab/shep down on the 30th of December.  I am missing her like crazy and it was one of the biggest decisions I have ever had to make but in the end it was best for her.  She was deteriorating and before things got worse I wanted to leave her with some dignity.  So we are all trying to adjust with her loss.

She brought me many years of happiness and I am thankful that she came into my life.

This is my new bundle of destruction.  I call her my little firecracker!  She has got some personality is which I am not use to so!

Although Christmas has come and gone I do have a few projects that I want to share with you and the first being an altered vintage Christmas box that I made for a swap over on the cricut message boards.

This was the first time that I alter a box and I am very please with the way it turned out.  I crackled the paint, distressed the edges, fussy cut all the paper which was from stampin up added some Tim Holts embellishments, felt to the bottom of the inside of the box and voila!  My very first altered box!

Hope you enjoyed my project today, sure hoping to get back into the swing of things.  It's been a while since I was crafty!
