Happy New Year,


  1. Love your layout,I am a new follower, come by and visit...

  2. What a great idea to include wrapping paper on your layout! Love the little green package and ribbon. Wonderful gift ~ Who wouldn't love to have one of those? Thanks for sharing

  3. Hi Melissa! I am your newest follower. My hubby is also a coffee fanatic and Santa (that'd be me!) brought him a Keurig Platinum for Christmas. And right after I ordered his, my adult daughter said that she wanted one too, so the UPS man delivered these two honkin' big boxes to my house all at once. I had so many HUGE boxes to wrap (including a toy kitchen for my granddaughter) that first of all, I needed to buy more gift wrap, and secondly, had no room for a Christmas tree!! So I stacked up all the boxes in a tree shape, wrapped it in lights, put a star up top and VOILA, Christmas decorating, DONE!! (I wish I wrapped them all in green, if I thought ahead I would have!)

    Your layout is sweet! Merry Christmas!

    May the year ahead bring you many crafty adventures. Happy New Year!
