Happy New Year!!!!

A little late is still better than never, right?!?

OH well, hope all of you had a great New Year's celebration. This New Year's was full of New Year's Past for me. I really miss the times as kids when we would have New Years Eve at my Aunt and Uncle's home with all my cousins, brothers & sisters-in-laws, etc. there. We would eat all night, watching tv. Of course, all the kids watched Dick Clark's Rockin Eve and all the adults wanted to watch the Guy Lombardo TV show and sing Old Lang Syne. Then, of course, we had to change the channel and watch the ball drop. As soon as it would drop, we all had to kiss each other...even the old great uncles, and then go outside to make noise. Did you do that? I would love to hear how all of you brought in the New Years in years past.

This year, I wasn't even awake for the New Year's coming. I went to a friend's house, got tired and came home early. I'm such a poop-head now that I'm older!

Anyway, what was everyone's New Year's resolution? I decided to try to get, and keep, my life organized this year. However, I am still on this losing weight thing. So, we started "The Biggest Loser" in my office to coincide with the TV show. So, wish me well on my continued journey to lose 150 pounds.

This year is going to be a very good and productive year for me. I have decided to go full force ahead with my Etsy business. Of course, I just finished creating my look of my site..check it out Let me know what you think of that too! Now, I need to start uploading pictures of items that I sell. So, that will take some time I think as everything I do is custom work.

Also, this year will be 25 years that I am out of high school, so hopefully there will be a high school reunion for me this year. However, if not, my husband is having his 30'th in September. So, I am so excited...we are off to visit Williamson, WV in September. What is exciting about that is that I am actually going to visit with and scrap with a fellow blogger, WENDY!!!! We are actually staying at her bed & breakfast while there and Wendy and I will be doing some scrapping. YAY!!!! I guess I should be excited about seeing all my husband's family as well, I am too...but I love to scrapbook and don't get to do it with others very often.

Also, I am going to apply to go to Ranger University, pray I get in there too! If I get in there, I can pass on my secrets that I learn about Tim Holtz's products to all of you. Speaking of Tim Holtz, I made my first tag the other night. I have to say, I loved it!!! OH, his work is so me....nothing to be exact about at all. I will post a pic of that as well.

I made my first Tri-fold card the other night. I will post a pic this weekend, if not before, and I will find the link that I followed for the tutorial and post that too. I love the end result, but I wasn't real good at all the measuring, etc. I think I am more a non-exact scrapbooker, card maker, etc. If there is such a thing!

Wow, didn't realize I have been doing so much without posting pics. I will definitely get better about this blogging thing, I promise!

Till next time....
