Heres to 2012 !!!


Happy New Year:)  I have a great feeling about this coming year.  I know this is a day to make new resolutions on how to make your life better. And I do have a few, number one being, FINALLY clearing out my email boxes at home and work! But I am also looking back and reflecting on the past.  One of my major goals of 2011 was to have my hip replacement and fully recover.  Now that I am on this side of that surgery I am so happy.  I was not very patient most of the time and wondered if I was ever going to get better after all; thank goodness my logical self gave myself until Christmas to feel 100%.  And I really do.  I now need to really build up more strength.  One thing I promised myself was that I would never take walking for granted again. So I am doing all kinds of things I hadnt been able to do for years.  Going to the Mall to go Christmas Shopping was pretty awesome. I had not been to a mall in several years!  But walking everyday is another resolution for 2012.  I have some ideas on where I want my creative endeavors to go as well, but still working out some details.  I have been busy sewing some new things I cant wait to share.
The one thing I own that reflects on my life is my charm bracelet.  It was given to me on my 16th birthday by my Mom and its one of my favorite possessions.  I have tried to keep up with all of the special events and interests of my life.  I wonder what new charms I will collect this year!  I just know I am looking forward to this New Year.  I wish you a happy, healthy and creative New Year!

Hi there sweet Gail!

Happy New Year! I am so happy that you are feeling better and looking forward to 2012. I feel the same way. A new beginning and new things to look forward to. Sorry I haven't been around much. I took a break for a while. I think my brain was fried..lol But I am back and ready to roar. I have so many ideas and so many things planned for this year. So a big toast to you and wishing you sunshine and roses always.
