I hope that your Christmas day was filled with lots of joy and fun! We had a fabulous day and the girls had a ball opening gifts. I do love to spoil them. They deserve it! I am so blessed to have such wonderful daughters. They truly are my pride and joy.

We picked up a couple of big puzzles to do over the break. We finally broke into it on Christmas night. We hope to finish it tonight. 1500 pieces take more than a couple of days, that’s for sure. Doing puzzles as a family brings back really good childhood memories. My Dad and I would stay up until 2am working on a puzzle…then we would realize what time it was and finally call it a night. Ginny discovered she REALLY likes doing puzzles so this might be a new tradition in our house.

As we near the end of the year, I am busy working on some new things here on the blog. Stay tuned for more videos and new stamps from the Occasions catalog!

Speaking of the new catalogs, watch your mailboxes. If you ordered from me this past year, I had the catalogs sent to you. They will be coming separately so don’t worry if you only see

QUOTE OF THE DAY – “Learn to enjoy every minute of your life. Be happy now. Don’t wait for something outside of yourself to make you happy in the future.
