I gotta say...

I LOVE the holidays.
Love, *LOVE* LOVE them. But, I am soooooo thankful they are over this year. I usually enjoy the Christmas spirit in my home for at least another week, maybe two depending on how motivated I am. But this year, this year is the first year I have started putting Christmas stuff away on the 26th!

It's been a long couple of months around here, and I am ready for a fresh new start to the year! Bring it on! :)

and, here is a sneak of what's to come on the 1st...

The January KOM! Today we are showing sneak peeks of this adorable owl and sentiment- (there is also an adorable smaller owl that goes with it)

My card is a simple one today- I paper pierced the owl, added a strip of patterned paper, and some hemp. easy-peasy. I am hoping to get in my office again today for another sneaky peek for tomorrow!

until then- enjoy! Pin It Now!
