A-Z Year and a Super Generous Offer from Paper Temptress

So, I just started reading/following Nicole Maki's blog. I know, I've been living under a rock and I'm late to the Nicole Maki party. What can you do? I read A LOT of blogs. Anyhow, I'm kind of in love with her (in a totally straight non-weird way.) I like the way she writes. I like the way she thinks. And if we were to meet in person, I'm sure we'd get along very well.

Ok, enough about my new found love for Nicole. While I was on her blog, I found this awesome article she wrote about her A-Z Year. To super simplify, you spend two weeks focused on a letter and doing something new. You will go through the entire alphabet in a year. How cool is that? I am loving this idea! She even has an A-Z Year Ning Group you can join for ideas. And as always, I'm late to the party so I will be starting with the letter B.

For you "B" viewing pleasure today, I give to you a picture of the Baby. :) Today, we are going to hang out with Brady's Best friend and his family. And we are all going to eat BBQ together. I'm pretty excited about the whole thing. I love doing new things and this will really push me to think outside my box.

On a totally different note, I was talking to Patricia of Paper Temptress yesterday and she's doing the most generous thing ever! If you donate $10 or more to a charity to benefit Haiti, she will send you a Silver Lustre Paper package for free! Here's what she wrote to me:
"PaperTemptress is offering a Silver Lustre Package for every donation of $10 or more that is donated to any charity for Haiti by anyone for the next two weeks. All you have to do is email me at with some form of proof, an email confirming the donation..a cc bill (of course cover the numbers) or any type of proof of a donation with an address and I will send you a Silver Lustre package (my absolute favorite) free of charge. There is no greater joy than giving! I hope to hear from all of you so please donate to any charity of your choice to help during this tragedy."
