Hugged My Heart #23 LAST ONE!

I've decided that my blogging has become way too scheduled and I need some more freedom.  From now on, hugged my heart will be more of a random shout out thing for when I see something that I really like, really inspires me, or that I really want to share with you all.  I don't know what I'll do about weekly Brady pictures though.  Maybe just random ones here and there.

This is Brady star head.  I guess when you get bored of your giant alphabet foam puzzle the next logical thing to do is put a piece on your head, grab your shovel, and head into mommy's office.  :)

Here's this week's list:

1. THIS post by Lauren Meader.  Just when I start to forget why I am like number one in the Lauren Meader fan club, you get a post like this and then I remember.  Not only is she talented beyond my dreams but she has a heart of absolute gold.  The first project she shows on this post is a gift for one of her readers who lost a child and had a hard time scrapping pictures of her.  Lauren (who rarely scraps btw) make a very special project for her and shares their story.  Grab your tissues people!

2. VSN.  Virtual Stamp Night on Splitcoast.  I love it!  It's a couple days full of challenges for paper crafters to try.  There's new challenges you've never seen before, some of which were really hard for me.  There's lots of chatting and making new friends.  And lots of projects people are sharing for inspiration.  The next one is Feb 20-21!  I can't wait!

3. Blogger Group #9.  I was lucky enough to join this blogger group and everyone is so friendly and leaves comments for me!  It's wonderful to meet new people and see new blogs.  I have a list of everyone on the right side of my blog.  

Have a great week everyone!


  1. I bawled at that post by Lauren! I am lovin VSN! I am hosting one of the challenges for the full weekend! The blogger groups are so fun! I hope you enjoy it!

  2. Just wanted to drop in and say Hi!!!

    The pic of Brady is adorable...and it makes totally logical kid sense to put the star over your head and grab a shovel. Now that I think about it....a shovel might be a good thing to have in here right now as I have stuff EVERYWHERE getting ready for this upcoming week!!!! It's going to be filled with lots of goodies.


  3. What a cute photo!! So fun!
    I cried when I read Lauren's post too. She's amazing!

  4. Awww.....and what a sweet photo!!
