Good Evening Everyone! I hope that y'all had a wonderful Christmas! Michael and I did; we relaxed and just spent time with each other! No running, a little cleaning, some cooking, and as little STRESS as possible!!! I think it was one of the most relaxing Christmas's we have ever had! But it is over... now we are working our way to the New Year! I am trying to come up with a list of things that I would like to accomplish in 2012. Most people do a resolution for the New Year and then within the first month, give up on it or forget about it. For the past 2 years I have done a goal list instead, which I have found to come in really handy. I must say that I do pretty well with the items on my list, so here's to hoping I have success again this upcoming year!
Now you will probably want to get a beverage or take a potty break before starting my blog post as it is going to be a bit long. My dear friend Carol, asked me early this year (January or February) to make her some Christmas cards with this cutie! I did what most everyone does... put it off because of not feeling in the Christmas mood, this or that came up, and before I knew it, the middle of November was upon us... and I hadn't started on them yet!!! Does that sound familiar to anyone? All together she wanted 15 of these cards... that doesn't sound like a lot, right? Well I forgot just how many layers were on these babies!!! Well... in the end it worked out perfectly (Whew!?!). I got them ALL done, a few bumps in the road; but got 'em done!!! And there is one more that she wanted; but that is for another post!!! LOL!!! So here we go...
