A Crafty Soiree #71

It's my first post of 2012 and I'm so glad it's for our weekly A Crafty Soiree!  Normally, I'd have been back online after the holidays before now, but I've been dealing with the sickies.  At least the flu bug seems to have left the house.  Now we've just got some cold sniffles lingering.  It's the first time LB has gotten sick and it's so hard to watch your baby cough and cry in discomfort!  Not exactly how I wanted to start off the new year!  I hope the year is off to a much better and healthier start for all of you!
Chrissy from Hoot Designs made this calendar journal for a friend.  It sounds a little labor intensive with it's 365 hand stamped journal cards and is really a very special gift.  I know her friend will think of her and their friendship whenever she jots down a memory. 
Minna from Feeling Inspired Today made these elegant printables for ringing in 2012.  While it's a bit late to use it while watching the ball drop, I think they'd make great journaling cards for all your memory keeping projects.  I can already see one on my scrapbook page layout!  Plus I really like the positive and optimistic outlook Minna's given all the cheers.
Now this one I had to share because, my great room is currently littered with the pieces to make a Millennium Falcon and assorted other Star Wars Legos.  The Star Wars Room shared on The Blackberry Vine has given me lots of ideas for setting up our Lego area in what I hope is our soon to be finished basement.  We SO need a mini figure board!
For being our features this week, here is a lovely Crafty Soiree ribbon, yours to proudly display!

We've all been sick here too Katie. Understand the sick baby stuff. So helpless when they are uncomfortable. I'm sure your year will be much better now.
Hugs to all,
