March Madness

So, yesterday was the first of March, which meant that the A|Muse Studio 2013 Catalog went live, the CUTE March Spotlight began AND I got a new house!

With all of the festivities yesterday (if you have ever closed on a house you know what a time commitment it is) I didn't get to post, but I want to make sure you have a chance to check it all out, so I have updated the links here -- and of course all of this information is on the website:

First up, the Spotlight (with a lovely Spring & Easter feel):

Featured Stamp Sets: Venetian Background, Egg-stravaganza, Chirrup, Springtime Day, Snail & Co
Featured Color Palette: Wasabi, Grapefruit, Papaya, Bermuda, Melon (previously Bellini)

Here are a couple of the projects from the studios of A|S:

The addition of the new doilies to the eggs is ingenious!

Isn't this felt bunny the cutest?! And the shaped card is so easy to do with the Spellbinders dies, too.
And, the new catalog. It truly is a "catalog and inspiration guide" -- I have already been inspired with new ways to use the stamps I already own (as well as the inspiration to pick up a few more!)
And, finally, my new house. We have lived in a rental house in San Antonio for nearly 4 years and finally figured out where we wanted to buy a house. We now have the keys and can begin the process of moving in (as soon as the new carpet we ordered is installed -- for now we are filling up the garage, just waiting . . .) I have a lovely new (big) craft room that is currently *really very* pink, so we will also spend some of that time painting. I will post a picture once my supplies are in!
Happy March, and Happy Stamping!
