2Peas, Card Nirvana, and New Year's Resolutions

Have I mentioned how much I look forward to Tuesdays now? I love going over to 2Ps in the morning and seeing my new products up. It's so fun! I never really had the anticipation when I owned Digi Nirvana because I'd just put products up when I wanted. 

This week I put up the Cupcake kit and Flora kit at 2Peas. Next week the Playtime Kits (Boy and Girl) comes out. Also, if you have a chance, I changed a few subcategories at cardnirvana. Check these subcategories designs.

I have also been thinking about New Year's Resolutions for a while and one of my resolutions is to get more in shape. I've been going running for a few months now but I am COMPLETELY inconsistent. I'd run for 3 miles one day and then not get around to it for two more weeks. So one of my new year's resolutions is to go running at least 4 times a week...hopefully more than that. So I thought I'd start a Challenge at NikePlus and see if any of you want to join me. The goal is to run 100 miles by March 28th. If anyone wants to join in this challenge, it's called the Card Nirvana Challenge and is by invite only. If you want to be part of this challenge (PLEASE DO!), you need to have a Nike Plus account. Just comment on this post with your NikePlus email so I can invite you. I'll even throw in a $12 gift certificate (2 cards) to card nirvana to everyone who actually runs the 100 miles within the 90 days!

Okay, so hopefully this motivates me to run more and get a little thinner for the wedding I have to be in April 3rd (that should be motivation enough!), but it would be fun if we all did it together. If you don't have a NikePlus, I would totally recommend buying one. They are about $30 and you don't have to buy Nike shoes. I have a small pouch that my sensor is in that attaches to one of my shoes. I bought it for about $12 at a running store. Before the NikePlus, I hated running. Now I love running. It's so nice to know how far I've gone and how much I have left. 

Anyway, hopefully some of you will join me!!! Click here to see the challenge. 

Here is my new mini-running me:). Okay notice that I've only had 10 workouts? That is since August. Ya, that's how bad I've been. So join this challenge with me and lets get running!

Sneak Peak at Tomorrow's Releases

Hi everyone! I feel like I have been ousted as the family blogger since Josh started blogging last week. His posts are way more interesting than mine, so how can I compete? While I am getting my self-esteem back together, I will only post my releases for 2Peas (back to business as usual:)). So here's what's coming out tomorrow!

This is the last of the swatches line.

The girl and boy albums

These are awesome! IOU Cards! Perfect to go with any gift!

Alright! There's your sneak peek. And Merry Christmas! I hope you are getting to do a little more relaxing and that you don't have too much Christmas shopping left!

So if you decide you want to read something funny, my husband started a blog called MormonMisterMom (http://www.mormonmistermom.blogspot.com/). I can't tell if it's just because I know everyone he blogs about that makes it funny, but I just spent the last five minutes bursting out in laughter. Go ahead. Give it a try. You'll have a nice laugh at a stay-at-home dad.

(BTW, I'd highly recommend taking a closer look at the snowman profile picture he has up for himself.)

Eating Snow

A few recent pics...

Felicity and I are watching the snow play at the window.
Clemintine nose, vanilla wafers, pomogrante seed mouth...creative, eh?
Yes, I love you snowman!
Mmmmm, yummy snow.

Donuts with the cousin Caroline.

Yes, I'm stuffing my face too.

Delicious! Maybe I'll have a second...
This is my flat, um, I mean destroyed tire while driving to work the other day. Excellent work, huh? Oh ya, and the ticket I got when I parked the car on the wrong side of the street and left the car there for three hours.

Siri's outfit

We all went to Costco last night (always detrimental to my wallet) and this is what Siri decided to wear.

We did a gingerbread house a few nights ago.

Sneak Peak

So, at 2Peas we always submit a week in advance and I put in mine yesterday. I feel like I can't wait to show you guys what's coming out next Tuesday because I'm really excited about it. The first is my new Holiday Magic Kit. I'm dying over the alpha...I can't wait to make the album.

I've also beefed up the SWATCHES line. Three kits from this collection will come out next week along with Calendar Cards and Journaling Stamps. The other 3 kits from Swatches will come out in two weeks.

Hope you liked the sneak peek!

So I started a post...

I actually wrote two paragraphs yesterday with the complete intent of posting, but somehow I got interrupted and my whole day was crazy to begin with. I turned 29 yesterday. I also had my work Holiday Party (In which I was the Event Director for...so I working not GOING to a work party). It was really fun because it was a fabulous event—It was at the Grand America and the food, my oh my, was SPECTACULAR! So my day was filled with getting ready for that. Josh gave me a nice card that was a Happy Birthday from Obama (just what every girl needs, hehee) and a gift card (also a VERY smart gift for this girl of his!).

I wanted to post on Thanksgiving, but of course, didn't get around to it. Josh and I ran /walked in the Cold Turky race on Thanksgiving morning. After a glorious 6K run (Josh hadn't trained, I run a bit), Josh and I walked back to our car to find that it was out of gas. Brilliant! Uncle John came and saved us, but I was feeling a bit frantic about the turkey that was sitting in my oven at home. It all turned out okay though as my turkey was still in beautiful shape (and was perfectly delicious as I brined it for the first time this year...I completely recommend it!) when we got home after picking the kids up from Liz and Tim.  Anyway, Thanksgiving was good, but what was REALLY good was the long weekend of hanging out. This is our first year of not being in school during the holidays and it is NICE! No studying although Josh did have to work a bit. Somehow I can deal with that SO much better than all the studying.

As it is Tuesday, my digital kits are up and rocking out at Two Peas. Some of it you have seen before: Simply Solid Collection, Element-ary Collection, Autumn Sparkles, and Worn Stamps. I added a new Winter Wonderland kit though.

Be sure to check out everything else in my shop there! Hope you are all having a happy December!
