I wanted to share a couple tips on how I organize my paper. I've tried several different methods but I have so much paper I found that my current method works best for me (at least right now ). I store most of my pattern paper and kits by theme. I found my stackers at Michaels. I like them because each case snaps closed so I can grab a container of themed paper and take it with me if I need to in addition to having it stored in a convenient location. I keep thinking I'll make fancy labels for my containers but until that happens, a label maker works great to help identify how the paper is stored. By the way, my son loves to make labels for me! He may not do a perfect job but it helps him feel like he is a part of my creative process.

It's January 6th. If you haven't checked out the My Creative Scrapbook website yet the January kit reveal is up for you. This is one of my favorite months ever. I love every kit. I love the layouts the design team came up with. I love the colors and the embellishments in every kit. Here are the pictures of all the kits: Main kit - Fancy Pants Timber Grove

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you. The first day of the new year is winding down here in Missouri. I'm sitting here typing as the snow falls. I love staring out the window as it snows. It is so peaceful especially at night when the world is so quiet. I find I breath easier and the tension in my muscles relax some. I would like to freeze this moment for a long while! Of course, I love the first of the month every month. I get so excited for the My Creative Scrapbook sneaks each month because that means in just a few days the full kit reveal will be posted. Even though I'm on the design team I still love this time of the month. I admit it - I love seeing my work posted for everyone to see. I love seeing everyone else's work even more. I end up wishing I could work with every kit. If only I had more time to scrap! This month our sneaks are a little different. Pam, the MCS owner, decided to give everyone a peak at one of the projects made with each kit. Check out the blog, www.mycreativescrapbook.blogspot.com for the photos. Check back here (and at www.mycreativescrapbook.com) on the 5th to see the full reveal. Waiving hi! Joan
