Happy New Year

Wishing you a happy and creative New Year!

This has been a whirl wind holiday season which started out with several weeks of being under the weather. Luckily I recovered in time to travel to visit Krissy's new baby and celebrate Christmas with my family. She had a 9lb. 2oz. boy!  Both mom and baby doing great. Sammie and  I had a good visit but, I missed traveling to friends due to holiday gatherings, meeting my new grand baby and staying 45 minutes from where they live. Lots of time was spent with the older kids and catching up. Now onto giveaway and discount news ...

To celebrate 2012 I am planning a giveaway soon here! But I have a giveaway you can enter for handmade Cashmere Snowmen on my other site. They are beautiful and made by a fiber artist!  Just follow and comment, that is it! Do it quick because it is ending soon. I may extend it to the end of the week since the holidays haven't allowed for many entries, which means better odds for you!!

I am also going to be reading more this year and if you would like to read the same book(s) we can have a chat once a month about it! More about what I am reading and the details later. Now if you have been pining over some getting some new arts and crafts books or other books you may like this discount:

Don't forget to visit the shop for handmade items and a few originals. Interested in a print, just ask!  More items to the shop soon. I will keep you posted. I can't wait to get creating in the new year!  Wishing you the best in 2012!!

What is on your list for this year? Wishing / Resolutions / Hopes?


  1. Happy New Year Theresa! I love your celebration photo!
    I am wishing you a fabulous new year full of all kinds of wonderful opportunities.
    I am thankful that you are here in blogland!

  2. Is the picture of you? Great photo! Almost wish I could use it to paint from! (I make it a point to only work from my own reference shots, or life...doing this pose from life would be a challenge!). I too love to read - I eat about four books a week on average, unless they are huge like the Baroque Cycle trilogy which I finished a couple of weeks ago...then it takes a week to get through one book. I love memoirs, bios (especially about creative people), historical fiction and non-fiction, mysteries and even sometime Stephen King! I have a secret vice in that I like Maeve Binchy too (oooh,,, that hurts!).
    Hope this is a great new year for you!

  3. Hi Terri & Karen Happy New Year! To you & everyone late. I am getting back on track late. lol Thank you Terri for your wonderful thoughts & wishes, sending them to you also!
    No Karen, maybe a prettier, younger version of me. I wish I could consume that many books!I am trying to get things organized so I have more time to create, read & of course for family too! I will keep you posted on the reading.I should be blogging this week & hope to get back on track. Or you can visit my other creative site @ to see what is going on over there too! xo Theresa
