Cooking It Up #43 - Button me a Ribbon Animal

Happy New Year Everyone!
I arrived back from England on Sunday evening and am still in "home sick mode" but it is getting better with each day. We all had a fabulous time with our family, savoring every precious moment and it is always so hard to leave and travel 4500 miles back to our home.
But life goes on and picking up my crafting tools and creating helps make it all a little easier.
2011 is going to be a very busy year, more crafting opportunities than ever and I'm excited to get it off to a good start.


It's a New Year and time for a new challenge over at my Cooking It Up With Katie blog!
