Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone:

Just wanted to pop in and wish you all a very Happy New Year! Things are looking up and my son is feeling much better. Yay! I am feeling a lot better too. I still can't seem to get rid of this fever and the headaches though. I am sure that I will be back to 100% real soon. I am just praying that the beginning of this year starts off with us all bug free!
I trust that you are all feeling well and have had a great holiday season. For us folks from Newfoundland we celebrate Christmas a little differently in that we celebrate Twelfth Night or Old Christmas Day and this festive season ends on January 06th. I am so happy that the 2 weeks in between Christmas Day and Old Christmas day really give us longer to visit family and friends. I especially appreciate it this year, due to us not feeling well. So I look forward to visiting family tomorrow and friends later in the week.

I want to share with you a " Year In Review" of sorts of my favorite cards that I created this year. I have been blessed with many wonderful blogging friendships, reconnected with some old friends, and have been given the opportunity to have my work featured. The biggest and most exciting event of my creative journey, was being chosen for the STAEDTLER Design Team. I feel so bless to work with such a wonderful line up of designers and to work for a very generous company.  So without further ado here is my 2011 Line-Up.

There you have it! My favorites of 2011! Thanks for visiting and hope you come back again real soon.

Hugs & Blessings
