We have a big year of traveling this year.... I am excited to go to several different places.... I also am excited to create more things.. and hopefully start a blog and be able to sell my creations online.


I just got some new Magnolia stamps and can't wait to do something with them. They are my new favorite stamps. You are always so generous with your giveaways, thank you. sandie994


I'm looking forward to vaction this year in June. Still in the planning stages--would like to go tropical but may go to Montana to vistit family and vaction. Also, looking forward to attending Stampin' Up's 20th year convention, I've never been.


I was searching for "stampin' write" pens that I want to buy and then ended up here.
Wow~ you are so impressive. I started scrapbooking by taking classes at the local store since March last year. I really enjoy it. I am happy to make scrpbooking mini albums for my family and friends as I see them so happy when they receive it. Meanwhile, I became interested in stamping, too. When I participated the holiday cards swap night in December, I learned that how those cards made beautifully with stamps. So I want to learn more about stamping as well. Thank you and wish you a wonderfulday!

Now, that's a really good friend who comes in to help you clean and ends up taking some of your stuff for herself! LOL
Love a friend that shares...and, that is part of being a friend , isn't it?!

Vacation? Have no clue at this point. We'll do some camping for sure. By the time my daughters softball season is over , we only have a couple of weeks before fall ball practice starts ... who knows! The next big thing will be hubbys birthday in March.. maybe we'll go camping if it's not so cold! Then the really Big day will be DD birthday in May..the big 12 !

We're trying to get me a space fixed so that I can start learning how to stamp without hauling everything in and out of a box!

But for now, I'm just looking forward to the kids being off school this Friday and then again Monday!

Have a GREAT week, Erika!


I am looking forward to purchasing my first house! Hopefully by this spring we will have found a new place to call home! Thanks as always for the chance to win a cool giveaway! Shannon


I am looking forward to my birthday (next saturday) and finially seeing Wicked. It plays here in Chicago and we never take advantage, so months ago I told my husband, easy gift, just get tickets.

Thanks for running this wonderful blog and all the giveaways.
I'm looking forward to a bunch of things - a trip to the beach in the summer, a trip to DC next month, but most of all right now I am looking forward to this weekend when my brother and wife will come from Alabama and my sister, hubbie and son come from Virginia to visit my parents here in Pennsylvania.

I am a huge fan of yours...and I realized I hadn't ever left a comment before!!! (Shame on me!) The biggest thing I'm looking forward to this year is our new baby! This will be number four for us...I'm a little nervous about being so outnumbered, but I know that somehow with each new addition your heart grows to fit in all the love you feel for your kids! Thanks for being an example of a great mom!

I just get as much enjoyment as possible with each day I'm blessed with:) And, of course, I ALWAYS look forward to spending time with my little grandchildren who bring more joy to my world than anything else. My mother went south for the winter & I look forward to driving to California in March with my sister, to bring mom back home.


I am looking WAYYYYYY forward to a trip to Europe that my partner and I are planning for summer of 2009. We drove around North and South Dakota last summer, and are going to Minnesota this summer, but we are starting to save and plan for a European trip in 2009.

Hi, Erica, I'm really looking forward to taking our boys to Catalina Island
this summer, I went a couple years ago with my sisters and had a lot of fun!
So, I've been hitting the gym, trying to get in shape in the hopes of purchasing
a swim suit this year,( as I haven't bought one in a couple years) I know they
will love it there as much as I did.

I am looking forward to a friend coming to stay at our house for a few days. We will stamp, stamp, shop and stamp!


I would have to say I am looking forward to a chance at another grandbaby.

I am hoping for a new home. DH and I still can't afford to buy a place of our own but we're thinking of moving from our apartment to a quieter, more private condo. *sigh* I am so excited to start fresh again.

Last spring I converted my 2 car garage into a craft room. I spent the summer and fall getting a floor, getting a nice big table that seats 10, and moving all my craft stuff out there. The fall/winter was just too busy for me to hold an event since I coached my daughter's cheerleading squad into November and then the Holidays were upon us. So now, I'm looking forward to holding my very first class in my new stamp/craft room on Feb. 10. Hopefully the first of many.


Hey, girl! I need to keep up with this blog, too. I like seeing your stuff and the prizes sound fun too. ;)

I'm looking forward to graduating... in like 2 years. =P

I'm looking forward to actually restarting my sons scrapbook. He's 3 and I've been very naughty about getting his pictures and everything put to pages.

My next big thing...hopefully getting pregnant soon!!


We have a lot to look forward to this year! Our son graduates from High School, our oldest daughter is getting married, my husband and I are going on a cruise and we are celebrating our 25 wedding anniversary!

This year we are moving, which is a big big task. It's been so long that we have way to much stuff to go through. I think it's an endless job. Hopefully I will get a craft room that has a door on it to lock everyone out.(teehee) Thanks for a chance.
