Hi everyone! With Josh giving so much info on the family, that has now become our family site! I am redirecting this blog to my new blog: http://www.carinagardner.com. Please check me out there! There is a new focus on the new blog including giving 2Peas scrappers the opportunity to see previews of coming digital products, releases from card nirvana, and a new focus on DESIGN! I'm so excited about it! I will be doing interviews with designers, some little design education tid bits, show things I am obsessed with...just generally designy:). Please be sure and link this new blog to your site!
The redirect will be automated in a couple of days!
Well, Jen is in town for business and she's over tonight (yes, it is 12:25 in the morning) and, of course, we start talking about design (what else? we're a couple of obsessed neurotics!). She introduced me to a fabric designer's blog that I MUST tell you about because it is so FABULOUS! Her name is Heather Bailey and it is such a great blog! She has a real way with color:
My second obsession that i keep meaning to post about is Madsen Bikes. I MUST have one of these bikes in the spring (I am totally going to get one come march). The buckets in the back can hold kids or groceries. I love them! Take a look!

And seriously, if you don't feel like you can run 100 miles, but just want to walk or run a little and be motivated by everyone else doing it , join the facebook group and give us your miles or join the Nike Plus challenge anyway!
My life is crazy right now and I have to design several things over the weekend for My Minds Eye....of course, Siri's birthday is on Wednesday, and I couldn't figure out when I was going to get around to designing an invite. So I decided to grab Jen's card from Card Nirvana. I mean, I designed the darn site to be easy, right? I just didn't realize it was going to be THAT easy. I had every intention and redesigning some of the elements. but I just opened up the pdf and insert and words and printed it at home (I just needed 5 so I printed 3 pages on some heavy white paper). Holy cow, I had this done in 2 minutes! I know it sounds like propaganda, because afterall, it is MY site, but I was so happy with getting the invitation done so quick that I had to post (because it's the first time I've used one of the cards on the site for my personal use).
