When I stand before God at the end of my life,
I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left, and could say,
"I used everything You gave me."
~Erma Bombeck

Hello 2010! I welcome you with open arms!

“Let this coming year be better than all the others. Vow to do some of the things you’ve always wanted to do but couldn’t find the time. Call up a forgotten friend. Drop an old grudge, and replace it with some pleasant memories. Vow not to make a promise you don’t think you can keep. Walk tall, and smile more. You’ll look ten years younger. Don’t be afraid to say, ‘I love you’. Say it again. They are the sweetest words in the world.” ~ Ann Landers

As you know, I LOVE quotes. I found this one on SITS this morning and I love it! I hope you do too!

I am wanting to make some changes to my blog and so, Friday Favorites will be back next week. I invite all of you to participate. I will have a button for you to use on your Friday Favorites post and will also have an "I was featured!" button too.

This year I would like to get back to one of my true passions, which is hand lettering. I would also like to venture into some mixed media on canvas. I think it could be a lot of fun!

One of the other things I would really love this year is too get to know you all a bit better. I have met some lovely ladies through blogging and am looking forward to meeting more.

Happy New Year my friends! Let's make 2010 the best year yet!


  1. It seems like you have a great frame of mind for the coming year - here's to peace and happiness for us all!

  2. Great goals! I think 2010 is going to be really great! I love the fresh start!!

  3. French Picnic is glad to be in the new year with you!
