January 3, 2014


Thank you for your sweet responses about Ruby’s Christmas surprise playroom and video.  It was a fun morning and that room is getting lived. in.  Can’t find Ruby?  I now check the teepee before the coat closet.  Or bathroom.  Or behind the sofa.  Our girl has a thing for hide and seek.

Well, I don’t know about you but it’s sort of therapeutic to pack away all things holiday for another year, clean my house (like wipe the base boards clean), and get a fresh start on the new year.

I’ve been busy returning things, sorting through closets, and writing thank you notes.  I’m a straight up stationary hoarder.  I can’t help myself from collecting beautiful cards, paper, and stamps.  I love writing cards and letters, I love sending them, and I love receiving them.  An email just isn’t the same, is it?

In honor of the written word, I am teaming up with La Happy (also check them out on Facebook) to give you two of my picks from their collection of stationary and stamps.  You guys, this stuff is soooo cute.  I want it all.  And if I had it all, I would write each and everyone of you a personal thank you letter for stopping by and supporting withHEART.  For real.  It means so much.  Instead, I’m giving one of you this adorable Bow Stamp, and one set of Cheers stationary.  I mean, don’t they make you want to write someone a special note?

    My New Year’s Resolution is to find a focus each month and work at that. This month I’m working on keeping my houses cleaner so it doesn’t look like a tornado hit it constantly.

    I have a few resolutions I posted on my blog the other day, but #1 for me will definitely be losing this baby weight after I have the baby in May…hopefully by Christmas…I figure it’s realistic! Loved the playroom…wish I had room for a teepee.

    My New Years resolution is a word. Daring. I want to be more daring this year and get out of my comfort zone. I want to push myself to really do what I want to do. It terrifies me, but I’m done with being stuck. So here is to a new and daring year!

    …to be more spur-of-the-moment hospitable and stop the hand-wringing over what I’m going to serve for dinner and whether I have time to get the house “clean enough” (like that’s even definable). Love La Happy’s sassy & classy interpretation of the art of letterpress. Great giveaway partners, you two.

    My New Year’s resolution this year, is to be more patient and truly enjoy every moment life has to offer. The good, the bad, whatever may come my way in 2014. I hope I can be more understanding of situations and just let go and realize I can’t control everything.
