The start of another new year is upon us. It's hard to believe that 2012 is already almost in the past!
Every year I make a list of "New Year's GOALS".   Not RESOLUTIONS. 

I also make it a point to write them in pencil.

This year the goals are:
                                                                 1.) Clean up my food
                                                                 2.) Make more ORIGINAL art
                                                                 3.) Declutter      
                                                                 4.) Continue to improve my computer skills
Notice please, exercise is not on the list. For 2 years in a row, I've managed to make it to the gym on a regular basis. Food (unfortunately) is back ON the list... My eating is totally out of control.

A very Happy New Year to all.

The above journal pages are for the "Schizophrenic  Journaling" class. 
I got to use glitter.   :)
Date: January 12th
Time: 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Well, Christmas is almost here. Once again I have totally lost track of time.
I really thought it was this coming Thursday.
What is happening to the time these days? Did we loose an entire week into a black hole?
Just yesterday was Thanksgiving!

 These were some holiday gift bags for a wonderfully fun gift exchange,
that I was invited to this year. I loved the glittered acorns tied to the top,
thanks to the huge oak trees in front of LA Fitness!

This ornament is Daffy Duck. I know he doesn't look like Daffy. His sponge
"beak" wore off years (and YEARS) ago. See, I had Daffy on OUR family tree when I was
around 3 years old!

Even the birds got into the Christmas spirit!!!

Our trees went to an all white light theme this year. I kind of missed the multi-colored 
lights, but the white is very soft and pretty too.

The antler chandelier was also switched over all white.

 More all white decoration. I love these two angels. They are from one of my
favorite stores, that has since (I purchased them) has closed down. 
It was a very sad day for me. :(

And the last "decorations" picture... This year we ran candles up to the top of the fireplace.
The candles in the foreground are distressed old spindles that have been
given new life as candle holders.

To all my friends and family, I'm wishing you all a wonderful Christmas.
Hold your loved ones close. 
Tell them you love them.
A lot.

 It's beginning to feel like Christmas!!!
The above wreath was made from an old mirror in a former life. 
The greenery is from "Michaels" 60% off sale.
Now, the mirror has been
re purposed to become decorations for our front door.

This is the "bird nest table. I tried for a "white" look.
Hmmm, don't know if I pulled it off, or not.

The above bird (on the right) is the one from last Sunday's post. 
She found a home on the bird nest table.

Looking forward to seeing all our friends over the holiday's.
Especially all my "girl's" this Friday night!
