New Collab on sale today! and maybe a freebie or three

Well I planned on posting this last night and having it automatically posted this morning, but one of my children decided that they couldn't sleep without mommy so I was in bed early and then today we had an impromptu day out. The good news is the kids are staying with grandma and I have the night to myself. My house is way too quiet and I'm actually able to sit here and watch The Soup in silence.

I've teamed up with Lil' Digi Bits by Jude (the DigiChick) and Stacy's Backdoor Designs (Digiridoo Scraps) to create this awesome collab Storytime. You can get it this weekend for 20% off. If you stay with me through the end you'll find some coordinating freebies!

I in love with every single one of these pages!

I know I haven't blogged in a while, but I wanted to start fresh in 2010 and reevaluate my priorities and try to get my computer life a little more organized. I want to be more focused on my posts and get in the habit of not only posting my new releases, but also featuring pages using my products that I see out in galleries and sharing my layouts and telling you all about the amazing products and stuff that I find. Thanks to all 39 of my followers who have been reading this blog :)

I also want to get more focused on what I feed my family this year. I watched Food, Inc. a couple of weeks ago and it really changed my perspective on the food that we eat. When I found out I was pregnant with my son in 2006 I really started looking at food labels a lot more and have pretty much cut out all food not produced in the U.S. Personally, I did this because I would rather support local farmers and think that the U.S. should be able to produce enough food to feed our nation. I've also started cutting out all foods with ingredients that I cannot read. If I can't read it, should I really be putting it into my body or my children's? I'm really trying to cut back on modified foods I've started a food journal type blog where I share what I make for dinner, new recipes I've tried, what I would do different, etc. I also would like to start including how much the meals cost and what good deals that I find. We really don't budget our groceries, but I consider myself pretty frugal when it comes to shopping. We've budgeted other things in our daily lives, but I've always considered grocery shopping a special treat and want to feed my family well. I'm hoping that I will be able to feed my family even better now and hopefully a lot more healthier. If you would like to follow along and maybe share some recipes or tips, you can find the blog HERE.
