Happy New Year for a Wonderful 2014!

Its hard to believe another year has flown by! It seems like its only been a few months since I was looking forward to 2013, and in a blink, 2013 is behind me. I have a lot of faith that 2014 will be a wonderful year and wish it for each of you!

I didn’t make any resolutions, other than to make this a good year, and try to stay on target with things I want to accomplish. Well, maybe get out and walk each day, and to find something good and happy about each day. Its not really resolutions, just a plan.

Many thanks to each of you for reading my blog and for your emails and comments. I really love hearing from you, more than you can know – you are special!

May you have the best year during 2014 – filled with good health, happiness, love and hugs!


Happy New Year and a One-word New Year’s Resolution!

Each year, as the year gets close to the end, I always wonder how can it be over already. It seems like only a few months have passed. I think working hard and working with something I love makes the time fly faster. I love creating both new art and new quilting/sewing designs so the days just whiz by.

Thinking ahead to the new year always brings thoughts of new resolutions. But by January 10th or so (if that long), they are usually forgotten as I’ve settled back into my normal daily routine. So, I’ve settled on one word for next year’s resolution – TRY. That’s all one can do, and my “try” will be trying some new things and some new directions as well expanding on the things I’m already doing. OK, I know there’s only so many hours in the day to “try” to squeeze my new resolution in, but there are some 2-word sub-resolutions that can help, “Better Organization” or “Less Sleep” (I really don’t like the last one so I need to work on the first).

New Years resolution - try

TRY reminds me of an old saying “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again”. I’m not quite sure I like that saying because you don’t have to fail or not succeed to keep trying. By trying, you can improve on something good or successful. TRY can also cover a multitude of plans, from trying to be a better person to trying to keep my plants alive by remembering to water them.

Thinking back over the past year, I am thankful for many things. Foremost, I’m thankful for my family and friends. My son moved back to Birmingham this year, to my delight, so I get to see him much more often. I enjoyed spending more time with other members of my family as well as friends.

I am thankful for all of you who read my blog, comment or send me emails. You all mean more to me than you know!

I wish each of you a great and Happy New Year, peace and happiness!  I hope your wishes and dreams come true!



A New Year ahead – and an old one almost gone!

If  you are like me, you are wondering where did 2010 go!  It certainly doesn’t seem like its been a year since I looked forward to greeting 2010. Time flies so quickly and the seasons, Christmas and holidays zip by! I meant to accomplish so much this year, and I did accomplish more than I thought possible, but I didn’t get to the bottom of my 2010 To Do list. However, my lists are always longer than humanly possible to accomplish. So I will do what I do with all my lists, roll the items I didn’t cross off onto the next list. I will say that close to the top of my list is to move all chocolate out of my sight, then I can move onto my work related items.

But at the VERY top of my list is to extend the biggest and warmest THANK YOU for visiting my blog! And for those who emailed me or posted comments, I loved hearing from you and would love to hear from bunches of you in the future!

I hope that each of you had a wonderful 2010 and I wish you a very, very happy and healthy 2011!
