Currently January

January 1, 2014!  Oh how I love a clean slate!  I'm linking up with Farley at Oh' Boy 4th Grade for the first Currently of 2014.

Listening... to the box set of Friends.  My daughter got it for Christmas so that's pretty much all we have done over break.  We are currently on Season 4!

Loving... time with my family.  This has been the first Christmas in years that my husband has been on first shift (he's a police officer).  We are really enjoying spending time together in the evenings (watching Friends!).

Thinking... I need to get up and get moving!  My friend bought me a Fitbit for Christmas and I am not reaching my daily goal of 10,000 steps.  I've decided to run another marathon this year because that's the only thing that seems to motivate me.

Wanting... snow!  I'm an Indiana girl and I love my snow.  Fingers crossed that we'll have a few snowstorms this winter.  Maybe then we can finish the other six seasons of Friends.

Needing... to learn how to use Adobe Illustrator.  My husband bought me a Wacom Intuos Tablet for Christmas.  I love to draw and really want to learn how to make clipart.  I've watched a few YouTube videos but still haven't really gotten the hang of it.
Memory... our new puppy!  We decided that our 10 month old golden retriever needed a wife (or sister if the breeding thing doesn't work out) to keep him company during the day.  Sweet Phoebe (named after Phoebe Buffay, of course) arrived on December 23rd.  It was love at first sight!!

On a side note, I finished two products for the new year recently. The first is Writing Workstation Jar of Happy New Year Writing Prompts.  It comes with 32 writing prompts and 7 different writing paper templates.  You can check it out here.

The second is a freebie for right after Winter Break.  You can download it here.

Hope you are enjoying your break!!


  1. Your new puppy is absolutely adorable!!! And have fun learning Adobe Illustrator!! I always thought it would be fun to make clip art, but I think it's a hobby that I don't quite have time for right now! Can't wait to see what you create!!
