Happy New Year!

I hope you had a happy, safe New Year’s Eve and are having a wonderful New Year’s Day.

Here in the Southeastern United States, the tradition is to eat black eyed peas and greens for New Year’s Day. Some folks eat collards; some prefer turnip greens. I like to mix collard, mustard, and turnip greens together. Add some ham, cracklin’ cornbread, and green tomato relish for the peas and I’m in hog heaven.

Another tradition, of course, is to make a New Year’s resolution. The first month or so of each year is when the gyms are full but bellies are not. Diet and exercise are by far the most popular resolutions.

I haven’t really made specific resolutions for the last several years. Somehow it always felt like I was setting myself up for failure, resolving to do something, or to stop doing something, that realistically I knew I wouldn’t continue long term.

This year I’ll just say that I want to be the best Stampin’ Up! Demonstrator that I can be. These first eight months with Stampin’ Up! have been a wonderful experience. I’ve learned a lot and I’ve met some terrific people. I’ve found some new very dear friends. In 2015 I plan to continue to grow as a Demo, learning all I can, sharing this wonderful craft with as many people as I can, and having a fabulous time doing it. Oh, and spending more time in my new Stamping Studio. I hope you’ll join me on this adventure!

For today, I just want to thank each and every one of you who has followed my blog, purchased from me, hosted a workshop, joined my stamp club, joined my team, shown me the ropes of being a Demo, or supported me in any other way. I appreciate you so very much.

Now let’s have an extraordinary and fun 2015!

And as always, thank you for stopping by today, and Sweet Stamping!
