Hello my wonderful friends!  Can you believe it is already Christmas?!  

It has been a difficult year... Hurricane Irene brought us much damage, and then the freak snow storm in October brought us more grief.  Our furnace finally gave up on us and we are still without heat.  But despite all of these terrible events, this year has brought me many pleasant blessings...

Although my hubby and I are still trying to overcome minor health problems, we have improved greatly since last year.  Good health is a true blessing and I thank God for what He has given us.

I am also thankful for the incredible friendships I have been blessed with this year.  Without my darling friends, I would not have been able to survive those unfortunate events.  You all know who you are... I love you deeply.  xoxo

It has been a little over a year since I began scrapbooking, and since then, I have been fortunate enough to design for several fabulous companies.  I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given and the experience that I have gained.

To all of my beautiful scrappy friends... I am so lucky to have gotten to know many of you.  I appreciate the kind and encouraging words you always leave me.  I apologize for my absence in the forums and on Facebook... I am hoping the new year will bring happier moments so I will have more time for fun stuff!  LOL.

Wishing you all a BEAUTIFUL holiday season and a FANTABULOUS new year!  
Sending you much love and hugs!  MWAH!!
