★•••{Here's to a Brand New Year!}•••★

I'm so excited to begin another term as a Twine-ista! 
It's 2014...and it's pretty cold. The kids, who are happily stir crazy, are enjoying an extended vacation due the Polar Vortex. Thanks Polar Vortex for helping me avoid reality. I have been happily creating away in my pajamas, listening to the sounds of video games and giggling siblings in the background. 

Our transition to 2014 was a bit rough, while others were out celebrating, 3/4 of us in no particular order...fighting a major headache, fighting a major sinus eye headache complete with vomiting and nursing a fat lip and sore face brought about by a basketball to the face. The other 1/4 took care of everyone and was the recipient of skunk eyes from two dogs who couldn't shove their way up onto the couch...also documenting the fact that clearly, no one was going to make it to 2014. 

I created this layout, continuing our theme of "NEW" for January. 


Here's a close up of some of the twiney goodness that is Timeless Twine:


I used Graphite Gray & Bubblegum Pink :



Have a fabulous Tuesday and look for more great ideas from our Twine-istas!!
