HAPPY NEW YEAR

Here we go into a new year. I'll repeat what I've read and heard from everyone, where did 2008 go? Do you make resolutions? I'm not terribly serious about them, but this year I truly want to declutter my house and simplify my life. Check back with me in a couple of months. LOL This being said by someone who loves fabric, yarn and anything paper. I must either produce more or buy less. Painful I'd say.

Last weekend we had another family get-together. SIL Danny's birthday is 27th and Morgan's is 22nd. So it seems they get combined every year. Now a thiry-something man and a 3 year old girl make an interesting combination! Fortunately Danny is pretty easy going about the whole thing. Here's the cake. It was Tinker Bell. Wish you could see Tink better--it was adorable. Loved the colors.
Dear hubby and I spent a quiet night at home on New Year's Eve. We are past the age of going out to party. Watched the ball drop, kissed and went to bed. Is that boring or what?

Recall I was a crafting fool for Christmas. Here is my grandbaby Morgan in a sweater I knitted her. I was so thrilled to see it fit her to a 'T'. It was knitted out of a cotton yarn with little blurbs of multicolor thruout. Fairly simple to make. What a cutie. ..Look at those big eyes.

Here's Tanner with a picture I painted for him. He loves anything with wheels on it, so I painted a highway and glued on die cut wooden vehicles with 3-D glue dots. I was really pleased with how it turned out. Love the bright turquoise color.
God bless you all throughout 2009. May you be healthy and happy and find love everywhere you look! Can't wait to see what we all accomplish this year. Luv, Nerm

Wow, Danny is pretty good natured if he's willing to deal with a tinkerbell cake. It is cute. Perfect for a little girl.
