Happy New Year!!

Wow! Can you believe the holidays are finally over? Don't get me wrong, Christmas is my favorite holiday, but when retailer's have decorations up right after Halloween along with all of the ensuing holiday madness, it takes a lot of the specialness out of "THE" day. I am ready to get back to the "everyday" existence for awhile.

It was a busy Christmas for us. We attended 5 get-togethers in 3 days. We were able to see all the grandchildren and our families on both sides. Of course we also had a 4 hour trip to get up to north Missouri and 4 hours back home. We left on Christmas Eve after I got off work and returned home the evening of the 26th. Just in time for me to get to bed so I could go to work again! It was crazy but it sure was nice to be able to see ALL of our family for Christmas.

Now it's a brand new year and I have noticed that I have put on some extra pounds over the past few months. The "Fat Fairy" waved her magic wand and...POOF!...I am fluffy! I am going to try to make an honest effort to lose some of that. I am going to eat sensibly and lose a few pounds before I start trying to exercise. Because these "ole" bones of mine are creaking and I think they might revolt if I try to exert a lot of pressure on them. I know it would probably help to lose weight faster if I could do both but....I'll let you know if it works.

I have been working on some new stuff for you! I know it has been awhile since I have shared a freebie with you, so I hope you will forgive me. Here is a sneak preview of what I am working on. Check it out! I have learned how to do page curls! I think they are so cool!!! I think I'm going to call it "Paisley Passion". I am going to try to make some elements that will also tie it in to Valentine's Day. Some hearts, etc. Do you have any special requests for elements? I will try to accomodate any requests you might have. Let me know what you think!
