The New Year comes and we have high hopes. Yet soon after the ball drops our expectations can too.
Reality hits and our good intentions can be
dashed with one question:
What do I do next? We look around and the possibilities can be overwhelming. So we freeze. Then life gets busy and
before we know it the pages of the calendar have turned.
But it can be different for you. What do you do? The next
thing. Solomon, that wise king, said this: "Whatever your
hand finds to do, do it with all your might" Eccl. 9:10.
Here's what I think is the smartest part: If it's something
your hands find to do it means it's right in front of you.
What's right in front of you today? That's where you start.
Stretch out your hands, open your heart and do one little
thing. Just the next thing. You've got five minutes. Ready set go...

Just wanted to share some of my favorite cards of 2012. So I guess you would say that this is a "Year In Review" sort of post today. I had so much fun making these cards and I hope that you were inspired by my creativity and imagination.
So those are my favorites of this year. I could have added a couple more but I think this is good. I want to thank you all so much for coming here and visiting me and giving me so much support. I won 't lie, this year has been a difficult year for me and most days my mojo was totally out the window. But it was the kind words of so many of you that helped me to push forward and commit to the goals that I wanted to reach. So without you and my faith in God, who provides me with strength even when I don't have any of my own, I would not have made it through another blogging year and a year of fun and imaginative creations. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Love you all. Wishing you much happiness, laughter, and love in this new year.
