Happy New Year everyone!! 2012 was an adventurous year for me personally. When I sat down to think of everything that I did I was pretty satisfied and happy. I attended several scrapbooking conventions and stamping expos with wonderful friends. I met Dyan Reaveley and took an art journaling class that she taught which was fabulous. Met up with Jenni Bowlin at a convention and had a nice chat with her and her husband. Took a class with Wendy Vecchi and loved it! I was able to release my very first stamp set and hope to have many more to come in 2013. Create Your Classrooms very first design team was formed. My family survived yet another horrible hurricane on the East Coast. Most of all, 2012 brought some realization in the fact that family, friends, and happiness are so very important. I think I was missing that piece.....making family, friends and happiness a priority which is why I decided to take a little break towards the end of the year. Being an elementary school teacher has its rewards and also challenges. After the incredibly sad events that took place in Sandy Hook this past December it made me realize even more just how precious our time is with our loved ones. So my resolutions or goals for 2013 will be to work on my health, make my family even more of a priority and spend more time with them. (it makes for great scrapbook pages too!) Meet new friends, make my crafting more meaningful, produce more stamps for Create Your Classroom, be happy, and stay positive even when things can drag you down. Thank you to all of my crafting friends and buddies who have shared their inspirations, creativity, and passion for crafting. You keep me going!!
I wish all of you a fresh new beginning in 2013....much love, happiness, and health!!!!!! Here's looking forward to a productive 2013.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!
