Wrapping up the Christmas Season...Unwrapping the New Year!

I don't think I've ever been this wiped out after Christmas! I am the one who keeps the Christmas music pumping for at least 2 weeks afterwards...I keep the Christmas movies going all year long...

But I need a day off.

Just one day though. I think. ;)

I got sick two days before Christmas, and spent Christmas Eve morning crying because I felt so awful and overwhelmed. But, the day rebounded, and a much improved me continued on with the festivities.

We had a wonderful joy-filled Christmas. (Pictures below...) Oddly enough, I don't feel sad now that Christmas day has come and gone, but I anticipate the new year and all of it's new promises!

I look forward to blogging frequently once again, now that I am in full health. (Praise the Lord!) I am also preparing to open a new Etsy shop, one that I was preparing for last year before I got sick, and am now able to follow through on. This will be smaller items that I am excited to share with you. Glimpses of that are soon to follow!

New images will be appearing here as I step out further into photography and digital art. I am very excited about this.

I am also working on a blog makeover. Hopefully this will be accomplished soon!

And so my dear friends, I wish you all a very Happy New Year!! Celebrate, and welcome in the New Year with hope.

I pray that " The lines of purpose in your lives never grow slack, tightly tied as they are to your future in heaven, kept taut by hope." (Colossians 1:5, The Message)

Blessings to you!!


(P.S. Giveaway coming SOON!!!!)

Such pretty holiday photos! Thanks for the note that you'd received the apron...I'm so glad. I was a little "attached" to that one...I love the colors and homemade charm.

Wishing you & yours a very happy new year!

Thanks so much for coming to visit........I love your blog. What a wonderful and uplifting girlie you are....and a Pacific Northwesterner too! Where are you? It's been pouring allllll day here, and sort of dark and gloomy. A perfect day to sort paperwork and light a couple of candles. I so wish I had a nice fireplace, but alas.....candles are as close as I can be.

Happy New Year!
