Happy New Year!

Wow!  It is January 2013.  How did that happen?  2012 was a full year in many ways, both at Scrappin' Happily Ever After, as well as with much of the S.H.E.A family.  There were weddings and babies, people moving closer, and people moving farther away.  There were injuries, surgeries, and most importantly recoveries.  There were guests and friends visiting from afar, and vacations.  We are now all a year older, and hopefully wiser.  We survived the supposed end of the world...a couple times, I think.  S.H.E.A. was moving, and then S.H.E.A. settled right into her home where she belongs.  Busy times, but amidst it all, there were many projects completed, laughs to be had, memories to be captured, and memories made.  

Now we start a new year.  I have officially procrastinated on making and starting my new year's resolutions.  They never seem to work out anyway, so I am taking a bit more time to mull them over. :-) That got me thinking about what we hope for in this upcoming year.  Not only for ourselves, but what would you all like to see happen here on the S.H.E.A. Blog?  What sort of content, items, projects, etc. would be most helpful and enjoyable to you here on the blog?  As always, I will try to keep you up to date on new items, but what else....sketches, tips, product tutorials, completed projects, scrapping stuff, cards, decor, craft items/techniques you would like to experiment with but are unsure how to go about it, you name it and I will consider it???  Just let me know by commenting below and we can get a little more interaction and activity here in the S.H.E.A blog. 

While we are brainstorming... What would you like to see at S.H.E.A this year?  Ivy always has wonderful projects and classes, but since the new year is a time for ideas...share your ideas.  What would you like to see at S.H.E.A this year...products...classes...? 

For now, I know Ivy is busy as always rotating in new stock.  She mentioned to me the other day that Bazzill has multiple new lines coming in, and there is new Bo Bunny, among other boxes that are arriving daily.  CHA is just around the corner, and it seems that companies are starting to do sneak peeks of new product lines and products.  If you see anything interesting, share here on the blog or on Facebook! 

Ivy is also working on getting more dates and items on the January calendar.  The Saturday Potluck Crop will be on January 19th.  If you were busy during the holiday season, it would be great to see you again.  Give Ivy a call to reserve your spot at the crop, as space is limited.  Also going on the calendar for this month will be some Silhouette classes.  There are several new Silhouette Cameo Club members from this past Christmas!!!  Keep checking the calendar regularly as it should be updated soon.

I hope you are all having a great start to this new year! I am off to make some resolutions...  Leave some comments and share your ideas on what you would like to see here on the blog and at the store this year!

I would love to see a challenge online with a sketch possibly! Maybe use an item and everyone must use that item in someway, whether on a card or layout or something, and then without others knowing, vote on it, just a suggestion.

Good ideas, Glenda. I was thinking about sharing sketches, but was unsure if others were interested. The idea of having a featured item and having everyone use it seems fun too. Thanks for sharing!

I am interested in a class on really cool mini albums.

Mini albums are always fun. Thanks for the suggestion, Cori!
