Happy New Year

Dear Friends, it seems 2012 passed all too soon and here we are about to greet a brand new year.
A time for new beginnings and adventure.
 
 It seems I never get everything created that I'd like to for Christmas and my shoppe. And, I always vow to create a little Christmas all year long to stay on track.
However, like every season, that doesn't happen even with a well organized plan no matter how hard I try.
 
True joy for me is looking forward to fresh starts within my journey. Do you do this too? Excited about going forward?
 
Getting back in the studio after a little time off to rest my wrists while enjoying my family for Christmas, has been simply wonderful. A little R&R always does one good.
 
January always brings me inspiration in our home to update the decor too.
Taking down all the Christmas decorations to reveal a clean empty palette, just gives me inspiration going forward.
 My dear Mr. Design guy always asks, are we ever done? You notice he says we. Oh I am so thankful for the talent he has to help me try and make our home what it can be.
 
Christmas 2012 was a special time for my family and I pray it was for you as well.
I am continually thankful for the many blessings God has shared with us.
Thankful for more then I could ever count or name.
 
Now as I look towards new direction on my creative journey, I am excited about getting busy once again.
Looking to God for the way in which HE would have me to go. Following that path wherever it leads.
Praying for my friends and family in blogland and beyond. You bless me in more ways then I ever thought possible. Thankful for the new friendships made this past year and for the many first friends over the nearly 6 years of blogging. You are all so special.
 
Time has flown by and here we are approaching 2013.
My prayers will continue, my feet are on the path, the road feels solid and the light is bright. Life will give it's  ups and downs along the way, nothing is perfect. But the journey will continue as we all begin a new year. God Bless.
 
Wishing You and Yours a Wonderful, Safe, Healthy and Happy New Year.
 
 
With Love,
Celestina Marie

I always say I'm going to get more organized, Celeste! I start out that way, but then I don't know what happens as the year goes on. : ) I have vowed to try and make a few Christmas things during the year ~ new stockings are on my list to do. We'll see how that goes!

Happy New Year!

A Happy New Year to you, my friend.
It's always a pleasure to visit with you, although I must say I've been missing for months and months, as you know. I'm back with a new blog, but with so little time, that I hope I will be able to keep it going in an interesting way and to be able to visit with you more often.

Blessings to you too!
And hugs,
Diane

Happy New Year dear friend!

Now that the hub-bub of the holidays is over I've really enjoyed catching up on your blog. Everything is so beautiful. Loved the fabulous rosary you shared with us.
I'm trying to get back on track now, Marie is in the midst of taking down her gorgeous Christmas village and packing it away for another year and we are getting ready to paint our liv rm! Never a dull moment here. We've been putting it off and now that everything was a bit ripped up from the holidays we decided to take the plunge. We are much slower at painting than we used to be so it will probably take us a couple of weeks.
I'm back on my schedule going to the gym 3 times a wk now and feeling much better for it. I was a bad girl and ate way too many cookies!!

Blessings & much love to you and Larry! Sherry

LOL!

Wishing you a very happy and Healthy New year!!
