Best wishes for a very Happy New Year. I hope 2010 will be everything you dream for and blessed with good health, happiness and love. For me, as for most, I have many plans and new directions for the new year and beyond. So many new ideas and creative plans ready to go and on the drawing board to stock the shelves of my etsy shoppe.

For now, I need to take a blogging break to pursue new projects and new directions. I won't be far away and easily available to contact through my etsy shoppe. I certainly will miss everyone through blogging, but look forward to new beginnings and blogging again in time.

So for now, I wish you many blessings and all the best in the new year. I pray you enjoy life to the fullest and all your hopes and dreams come true.
Blessings and Blue Skies be yours always.
Bye for now, Celestina Marie

Blessings to you sweet C! May God continue to bless you and your family and your LOVELY little business.

I never made it to TX last year. That means this year I have to come three times to make up for what I missed.

Love to you. Thank you for all the comments and words of love and encouragement. They meant more than you know~

Love you~Rebecca

Hi dear friend,
I know how important it is to take a break once in awhile. It's just needed to get things of life done.
Thanks so much for your prayers and concern. Hubs and I are feeling much better. He still has a cough at times but seems to be on the mend.
We were able to get our house back in order and feel so good about that. Seems naked in a way--but a good way. Seems fresher.
It's been way below normal in temps. here.
The only place warmer is CA and that is about to change next wk. lol
I told hubs I'm about ready to get out of Dodge. lol
It's calmer now without company and hoopla of the holidays so I hope to start a few projects, blog more regularly and do a little traveling. We'll see how it goes.
I hope your New year is everything you hope for.
Stay in touch, ok?
Enjoy your time off.

Hi Sweetie!
Was wondering why I hadn't seen any post! Hope you have a restful and productive time off!

Thanks so much for your cards, words of encouragement and prayers this past year! I am praying for a miracle, which I know only GOD can do!
Thanks to you and Larry! Blessings for a fruitful 2010!

Hey Sweet Celestina! It sounds like you are quite busy with your Etsy Shoppe. I've been tossing around the idea of starting one this year myself...but kinda feel like I'd like to investigate the pros and cons with someone that has one. Maybe we could chat in the next 4-6 weeks. I already know what my "nitch" would be...just not sure if I want to tackle it while I'm still working a 40 - 45 hr work week. Happy New Year my talented blogging friend! ~CC Catherine
