Hard to believe a new year has begun already ~ but according to my brand new Susan Branch calendar it has! 2011 had it's ups and downs, but I guess when you sit back and think on it, most years do. Some years are worse than others, but even the bad times and sad times are as my wise Uncle says, "All part of life's colorful pagentry." I suppose all the struggle makes us stronger for getting thru it?
Hopefully, 2012 will be filled with bright and happy things for all of us. A new Etsy store perhaps? Finding homes for all the homeless animals who need someone to love them? New opportunities to meet the right people and get your art "out there" ? More craft fairs? Stealing more time to create and feed our souls with what makes us tick.
So as we embark on a new journey into 2012 ~ I wish you all good health and much happiness; and more time to do what you love, whatever that may be.
Resolutions you ask? Well... no, not exactly ~ I prefer to think of them as strong suggestions, that way I won't feel so bad if I fail.
1. Open Etsy store.
2. Create MORE!
3. GET ORGANIZED!
4. Take time to appreciate the little moments more.

No comments are necessary on my finely styled morning hair .... just laugh quietly to yourself. :)
