I have been meaning to post this for a while, but our family was struck down with the flu this Christmas - and I was hit hardest. As most of you know I took up a challenge last January to read 144 books in 2010. Well, I did it - I finished out the year with 151 books read - Yahoo! I am not taking up the challenge this year - I am aiming for somewhere between 50 and 75 - I haven't read a single page since December 26th!!! I am hoping to get some of the crafting that fell to the side while I was in my reading frenzy!

A very close friend of our family is expecting her first baby in early January. I am really excited and made this cute (I think) little box. I popped a Walmart gift card inside for Diapers, as I always give a new mom diapers, but as she lives in Alberta - I wasn't paying postage on diapers!! She is expecting a girl, so I hit winners and picked up 3 fabulous outfits to go with the present as well. Girl stuff is sooo cute! Loved the vintage look of the paper. Funny thing is that I made the box a while ago and then saw a card made from the same paper on my crafty buddy Kim's Blog - great minds and all that....

As most of you know, I took up a challenge at the beginning of the year to read 144 books is 2010. This works out to 12 books a month! Believe it or not I am on track, I am in the middle of book #132 which is what I need to be by the end of November - If I can get in another 1- 2 before the end of the month that will take off the pressure for December. Of course this means my crafting has fallen behind, but I have just really been in a 'reading' mood this year.
