It's "that" time of the year....again!

Yes, it is "that"  time!! Time to end the year and begin a New Year, and with that comes New Year's Resolutions!!! Each year I say I'm not going to make any resolutions because I don't want to have to worry about keeping them. But this year...is gonna be different. I am going to make a couple of New Year's Resolutions, and try my hardest to keep them!!!

Here is my list:
1. Simplify my life. (If I simplify, I believe I will have less stress, and more time to enjoy the "important" things in life like family, "me" time, helping others, etc.)
2. Help people more. (Do random acts of kindness, smile more, lend a hand from time to time.)
3. Read more. (This means my Bible and a list of books to follow. I love to read, but lately have read more blogs than books.) I now have a new Ipad so I can carry my books anywhere with me--no excuses!
4. Be Healthier. (This is the hardest one. I would really like to eat healthier and excerise more. This is gonna be a toughy, but I can do this!)
5. Focus on ME! (For many years my life has revolved around me being a mom and wife, with this new year, I'd like to focus on myself more. Take better care of myself, do nice things for myself, etc.) I love my family, but I have to happy and healthy to care for them.

Here is my wish list of books: (all of these books can be found at Amazon.com)

I will be back to post soon. I'm hoping to get back to my cardmaking and crafting. My home computer is still "out of commission", so I'm having a hard time posting pictures. Basically my hard drive is giving me a "hard time"! Grrr!
My brother, the computer geek  genius, says it's fixable, but will take time and effort. He worked on it all Christmas day...but still, no hard drive. I'm praying I can save it, I've got my whole life so many important files on there.

Thanks for visiting!!! Have a blessed Wednesday!!!!

Happy Holidays!

I just wanted to wish everyone a wonderful Holiday season. I miss my daily blogging and posting my cards and crafts. You see, my home computer is sick. :( it won't do much and I don't know how to fix it. I am waiting on my brother to come to my rescue...he's a true computer geek ( but a really cool one!) I am writing to you today from my Ipad. I thank God for this Ipad because otherwise I'd go crazy without Internet access.

So, hopefully I will be back to blogging in no time. Until then....

Have a wonderful Friday!!!!

Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells.....

Jingle all the way........Sing with me!!!!
I'd like to share with you one of my favorite blogs: it is what it is. Beth has some of the cutest ideas, projects and free printables!!!!
I used her Jingle Bell printables on some little bags filled with Reese's and Butterfinger Bells.:


Close up view of Bells:

These would be great for your kids to pass out in class, give to teachers, friends, coworkers, the mailman, the bus driver, heck...just about anyone!!!!LOL

Have a great day!!!!!!!
