Here in Michigan it is still cold and grey, with a few mounds of snow scattered through the yard and to say I am ready for spring is an understatement! I am ready to see the flowers start poking up through the dirt and the leaf buds on the trees begin to open, but most of all I am just ready for some warmth in the air. But we have had plenty to keep our minds off the cold, grey weather with all the exciting new things we have been busy working on this month. I can’t wait for reveal this Thursday when we finally get to show you the exclusive papers we have created with Simple Stories, our new Day in the Life project life kit and of course our main kit, stamps and add ons. We are still working on the final details of our Project Art kit and should have some sneaks of that out mid April. I am hoping we will be debuting it with our May kit. We still have a few surprises coming up for April that I can’t wait to share with everyone!
My nephew Jacob (aka Jakey) has been doing a great job! We love having him here after school and he tells me he loves his job. I keep forgetting to take a picture of him in the bunker working, so for now I’ll have to just show him when he is being the awesome big cousin that he always is with Zach.
I am so thankful that we have Jakey working for us, my Mom and Dad have sold their home and will be moving into a condo in the next few weeks so they are pretty busy with all the work that goes into moving from a home that they have lived in for 39 years. I’ve called that “home” since I was 3 and will really miss it. Growing up in the country with lots of woods to explore in the summer, a barn filled with animals (which was later turned into an office when I was a teenager), a big yard to run around in and a pool; it was a great place to be a kid and I think that is what makes me sad is that the boys won’t be able to enjoy it any longer. But, my parents are getting older and they just cannot take care of it all any more and they are ready to make this change. I know they are going to love their new home and they are going to be able to relax a bit more. Plus they will be only 6 minutes down the road! Big bonus!
The end of March and April are shaping up to be pretty busy months! Make sure you subscribe to our newsletter and check in our Facebook page for all the latest sneaks and Cocoa Daisy news!
Have a wonderful week and make sure to join us on Thursday the 28th for the full reveal of our April kit at 9pm EST.
