2016 is here! We've had three birthdays in our family already and one more to go! Gotta keep on top of things. Ha. We're glad 2015 is over to be truthful. We had lots of stress but it was also offset with blessings too. The birth of our third grandchild was a highlight. Our second granddaughter and she is a beauty and a busy happy little girl. Full of curiosity and is only 8 months old. She was trying to turn on the TV the other day by pushing the buttons on the Xbox remote which is how momma and daddy turn it on. Then just Monday she made a video selfie all by herself. There was lots of ceiling and one time we saw her face and she did express frustration with the thing not working how she wanted. I laughed and laughed. They are so fun! Our oldest granddaughter just turned 9. They grow up too those grandbabies. Darn. I just love their innocence.
Here's what's happening at the Haven (aka Sue's Scrapbooking Haven). I'm going to regularly work on the blog and get some tutorials etc put on here. I recently got a Cricut Explore and am excited about it and the things it can do but it will take some using it to get acclimated to Design Space. It does only use Design Space to operate but this wasn't a biggie for me since I used Cricut Craftroom all the time anyway. I only had to take my computer and the machine to crops and not my entire library of cartridges (I do need wifi for that though). That said, Design Space is more like a photo editor style but yet not. I like that my cartridges migrated directly to Design Space once I logged in, but I don't like that I have to constantly tell the software I only want to look at my cartridges and not all the 50,000 images that come with Design Space if you pay the monthly fee. I have to find a way to stop that from happening. I'll look at the ones to purchase if I don't have the image I want on my cartridges. Can you tell that is annoying me? I'm not the best at sizing either so if anyone has a cheat sheet let me know for sizing. I made a wee little card because I thought it was the right size. The good thing about that is the Explore cut it perfectly so that made me happy.

Then there is Illustrated Faith with Shana Noel. She is partnered with Bella Blvd and DaySpring. I have her Bible journaling items in my store. But she and Bella Blvd are coming out with a whole bunch of new items in February after the Crafters convention in January (CHA) I really love her paper, well everything she has developed. I should be getting some of those items in the store in February.
That's the deal from here. Hope you're year has started out great and continues.
