Happy Holidays to YOU!

Weren't we just talking about the oncoming holidays?? How did they get here so fast?????

At this time of the year, I like to take a moment to stop, relax and look back. This has been one of the most amazing years of my life. I started off selling cards at Etsy - which I loved - and that led On this TST playground, I have met the most inspiring, giving, loving, thoughtful, supportive, talented, fun people. I never dreamed that having a blog could lead me to you. YOU have changed my life for the better. You have lifted me up when I've fallen and I took some pretty big spills this year. You have encouraged me to try things I might not otherwise have tried. You have given me a place to share my art and writing where I feel safe yet challenged to be the best I can be. You have made me laugh when I least expected it and made me think, feel, cry when I needed it most. I've grown by leaps and bounds with and because of you. In the coming year, I plan to make a huge push with my journals. I plan to create more, share more and plan my time better so I can really be present.

Thank you for being a part of my life. Thank you for all the gifts you have shared with me. Thank you for being exactly who you are....please don't ever stop being YOU. You change the world every day just by doing that and you make it a better place.

I leave you with an amazing video sent in by Jodi, creator of Jodi Horgan Beaded Art to Wear. Jodi, you find the best things on the net! This my hometown!!!

Happy Holidays and all my love to each of you and your families!
