My great friend, Jen and her husband and baby and I all .had a long impromptu slumber party. We had such fun. We would only break the party for moments of hysteria where we wondered if you could die from clostrophobia? My snowdays really interfered with normalcy here at Amber Ink.
Our 21-Day Amber Ink. INK-redible challenge was supposed to launch today. Instead we are launching TONIGHT! I would be sore remiss to fail to mention the brilliance and hard work of our amazing torch bearers. These girls ran during the holiday! They sprinted over St.Nick's path and they arrived huffing and puffing and we are so glad they did. Our challenge this month calls you to organize with Amber Ink!
Alyssa's organizing her life with a holiday planner!
Cheryl is comanding her kitchen with a recipe holder of delight.
Laurel is ready for a spring of seeds. Her journal is ideal for all the planning that goes with a growing garden.

This is my workdesk for it:
The pink ones are this iPaper
I am creating a grand project. It'll probably take all 2011. This is one of the 'A's in my 'alphabet of happiness'. This one is going to my queen of all joy, Tomomi. She keeps me on pins and needles, in more ways than one.
What letters are in your alphabet of happiness?

To thank Thee for the era done,

Jane was so used to the firebolt, that a car with four wheels and an engine seemed just so rudimentary. Perhaps that is why she failed her driving test seven times. She may have been luckier if the test had been given in French (she's fluent) and the driving was done on the other side of the street (she grew up in France). Still, our girl can whip up a storm when she wants to -she works at the European Weather Centre, so fly over and take a peek at her marvelous craft magic@ http://milliesmarvels.blogspot.com/
Growing up Lyss wanted to investigate serial killers for the FBI, so daddy invited a few FBI agents and psychiatric nurses over for dinner. Although this had nothing to do with Alyssa's choice, she started looking at the healthy food they were eating and chose to be a Human Nutritionist instead. Tempted? Ya, we thought so. Go and serve yourself up a serious helping of Alyssa @ http://critterlyss.blogspot.com/
Cheryl Ann monitors security all by herself since she had childhood dreams of being a Forensic Psychiatrist, a cop or a fireman. You will also want to make sure you pay the bill before you leave, since our sweetheart once broke someone's finger...on purpose! The stereo is playing Classic Rock, a tall cold glass of water w/lemon is sitting on your table and the vintage décor will delight and surprise you. Check it out for yourself @ http://cafexpressions.blogspot.com/
Follow us over the rainbow (there has got to be a pot of GOLD in here somewhere!) as some fresh colors are being blended on Lindsey's new blog http://bashfulblogging.blogspot.com/
Laurel's most embarrassing craft story is that when she first got new flooring in her scraproom (she used to have carpet) her rolling chair really rolled and when she went to sit down it rolled right out from under her and she fell smack on her head on the floor! We'll leave that one alone. Join the 500 who want to scrap @ http://want2scrap.blogspot.com//

I’ve been reading Gretchen Rubin for a long time – even before she had a Happiness Project. So read this article when you get a chance, but in the meantime, this Aloha Friday we are going for i (instant) pretty!
Last Aloha Friday we picked the dresses, the jewelry and the signature perfume. We know the who (why us of course) and the what (a festive evening out in our best attire) and all we need is the where and the wear (for our tootsies).

Ladies, I'd like you to
meet my first tree.
She's up on my workdesk this Wednesday.
Here's what she looked like at 5:30 Before.
Here's what she looked like at 8:24 After.
My house smells like a forest. Here's what my desktop looked like earlier. I'm working on a blog post for my 'I'm an illustrator' blog, http://SheSureisSketchy
Here's a photo collage I'm working on. I hope I'll get it up tomorrow.
Here's the exciting part....
We've been looking and hoping and waiting for a way to do some video for our LOOK button. Tonight I made THIS
