Almost Feb?

How in the world is the first month of 2010 almost over? It is flying by around here! I finally have my website up and running for my Harmony business! Yay!! Here's the link if you want to check it out:! I'm so giddy!!

We are hanging in here. Erin has almost finished this cycle of teething! We may get to sleep again sometime soon! I am working like crazy on getting my certifications finished, but it is amazingly difficult to find childcare for these munchkins while I am at a birth, and I have to attend 3 for my cert. I am hoping to have it done by the end of March.

I have been thinking a lot about my scrapping for this year. I wanted to make templates that focused on the ordinary, but have come to the conclusion that templates can be made into anything, so a specific focus won't really work for that. I've decided that I am going to simply continue with the templates as I have been, giving you freebies and then posting ones for sale in the store. For my focus this year, I will give you a prompt/challenge with each post to remind you to focus on the day to day reality you live.

This week's prompt is Your Relationships. Who means the most to you? What relationships get you through your day? Who do you rely on when you need that shoulder? Your challenge this post is to create a layout or book focusing on the people that add the spice to your life. For me, it's my little ones, my hubby, and the friends that I can rely on when this stage of life gets overwhelming. (ps. Don't forget to check the store for some great templates for this challenge!)

If you complete this challenge, post a link to it in the comments section, or email me @ thepaperiris @ gmail . com if you want to hide your info. I will select one commenter/emailer for a free item in the store.

Now for your goodie! They're calling for snow tomorrow night here, which would be nice since we have not had ANY this year!

Happy New Year, Everyone!

Whew! It's been a looooong month around here! Between the Holidays, nasty colds, 8 teeth coming through, Family time and all, it's been busy! We are almost back into our routine, but its still a bit rough getting going in the morning! Have any of you made the family chart from Template 73? I LOVE ours!!! I feel so peaceful with my brain hanging on the wall, instead of trying to remember everything all the time. If you didn't get the template, you can find it in the store by clicking on the pic here:

So, who's given up on Project 365 so far? (raises hand) ME! I have come to terms with the fact that at this stage I just don't need something else to keep up with. Instead, I am going to make sure to focus on the everyday this year, because I know that someday I'm going to miss this time when they are so little and fun. I'll have some templates for the ordinary later on in the month.

Now, for your new goodies!
