Maybe I'll start every NEW YEAR this way!

It can be kind of hard to justify extra craft time during the height of holiday activities...

But, babies - the kids are BACK at school, normal routine kicking in.... And taking a little time to get my craft onnnnnnn.... It's FOR REAL beta endorphins... Wooooo Hooo! I'm on a program!





It's the POST CHRISTMAS, NEW YEAR'S EXTRAVAGANZA, twelve tags of bliss, diet...




My scraproom has shed ALL kinds of "extra" pounds! Ain't life grand! Yipeeeeeeee!

I'm so glad you took the time to stop by! Additionally, I must THANK YOU, so much, for all of your kind thoughts and words regarding my dear uncle, and the picture I shared in my last post. It's pretty magical when someone in your life shares words of comfort, a similar experience or even a hug, during a sad time: to receive it from blog friends - just fills my heart in ways that cannot be measured. My intention was not to solicit pity, but rather to strengthen a bridge that already exists - and dear ones, it's stronger than ever! Thank you!

Hi Sweetie! Gorgeous tag(s) as usual I love your work. Big hugs to you on your recent loss....I just lost my great uncle on Christmas day, he was almost 101. I wasn't super close to him but it's always sad. I hope your Christmas and New Year's was good in other ways....I am so ready to get back into a normal routine!! {{{HUGS}}}

AAAAHHHH! Another gorgeous, gorgeous tag!!! Complete with fantastic charms! Darlin', you are my tag-making guru!!!!
So glad you could find some comfort from the blog world :) I did the same thing a few weeks ago. Oh Elise, I don't imagine anyone thinking you were soliciting pity. That's sooooo not you :) It's about cathartic writing, a tribute to a loved one and finding comfort in the shared experiences of others :) There's so much love and support in this blogging community!!! {{{HUGS}}}
