Happy New Year?

Yes, I know I'm a little behind, wishing you all a Happy New Year 14 days late! Let's just say I have a more relaxed approach to life these days and leave it at that! Haha!



This is a picture of my 5 grandchildren taken just last month. I think their personalities show through quite well in their expressions here. LOVE that! ;)

First, I want to thank all of you who have emailed and called to check on me since closing my store. I'm alive and well...and it's going to be an AWESOME year for me! The last couple of months have been a bit "trying", I will admit. I've been super busy with closing the store and Christmas. I will admit that I am still learning to regroup after living in the fast lane for so long. But I can assure you that I finally have a grip, and life is good! It's all uphill from here!


I hope to be stamping again soon. And I desperately feel the need to get out my Tombows and color something. Who knows...I may even learn to use my Copics! At any rate, I will be back then.

Love and hugs to you all!

Happy New Year to you as well. Love the photo of your grandsons. I have two aged 6 and 4 and two granddaughters aged 4 and 2. Love being a grandma. Like you it took me a while to wind down when I gave up work - I was teaching and seemed to live to work. Much more relaxed now and able to enjoy being with family, friends and pursue hobbies. I am much happier. Anne x

Glad to see you back Michelle. Happy New Year to you as well. This will be a different year for you but I know you will enjoy more time with your family - looks like a great bunch of grandsons you have there! I'm looking forward to starting my blog up again soon. It's been a different & busy few months for me too. Looking forward to seeing your cards!!!!

I am so glad to see you post. I enjoy following you on Pinterest. I do miss your store. I was just thinking that I don't know what products are out there because I would always check out your store to see what you were stocking. I look forward to seeing you post your cards again!

Belated Merry Christmas and a Happy Healthy New Year to you and yours. TY for the great family picture, you should have been in it. Dang. Glad to hear you are doing so well post-shop. You might even find out things about yourself that you could not put to use while you were selling and selling. Enjoy that time for yourself. And help me to learn to use my Copic markers as well. LOL ekciampo Best of luck.
