Year in Review



I saw this on Julie's blog and had to participate.  Karin is hosting a Year in Review blog hop, so run on over and link up your year in review.

Here are 12 of my favorites from the last year:



Happy Birthday


My goal for 2012 is to find a better balance with work/home/hobbies/friends--in no particular order.

 Returning to work full time after 8 years off has made me appreciate the time I spend with my kids and the years I spent home with them.

Saturday is a glorious occasion and not just another day--I live for the weekend! 

Time itself is different for me now. It's precious and I want to make sure I spend it wisely. 

My perspective has changed and I realized I placed importance on things that are really not important.  

 I'm  happy to be here to usher in 2012.

  29. I just recently came across your blog and this was a great way for me to start, these cards are AWESOME. I'm torn between the spool of ribbon, the cow smooches card, the typewriter old school cool card and the welcome gnome card as my favorite. They're all incredible. Can't wait to see what 2012 brings!
