Happy 2013!

Hi there ladies (and very few gents)!

Anyone still reading this?


First of all, I hope your holidays were amazing!  Mine were.  Had hubby and the girls home and we got in a quick family trip...




Don't you wish you went with us?

I'm posting today because my New Year's Resolution is to be a bit creative every day.  And I know my resolve will be stronger if I am accountable to someone.  And that is where you come in...

No, I'm not going to report how many rows of crochet I completed each day, or give you a scrapbook page count  (snoozer) but I do intend to drop a little info or a little photo and probably a lot of nonsensical blather about what I'm doing on this trusty old blog because when I punched and posted regularly here - well, it brought me great joy.  Hoping to rekindle a little of that vibe.

If you're still reading, drop me a comment and tell me how you are being creative these days.  I need you to keep me fired up.  Maybe I'll even punch again one of these days...

Happy 2013!  May it bring you contentment, peace and joy...

Happy New Year to you too!

To be honest your regular postings when you were doing punch art made me feel good too! inspired me to create.

Hope you find your creative Muse!

I need to create more this year and spend less time looking at everyone else's creativity on Pinterest! I cleaned up in my room today so it's all good and ready to go!

I deleted the spam. If it keeps up, I'll have to add one of those word verification things but I HATE them.

Oh I am so glad you are posting again, missed you and your creativity on your punch art. Would also love to see what you are crocheting, I just picked up a hook again and am working on a Basket weave afghan. It is taking forever and when done goes to my mom in the care center to keep her warmer.
Happy New Year!

You are so inspiring, I enjoy how you can look at a punch and see beyond the obvious. I too hope to be more creative this year. I will keep checking in to see you will have to share.
Thank you for the tremendous posts you have done in the past.

I have missed you too. You are so very creative and see things that most of us (well, me anyway) miss seeing. I do hope you will do more punch art, but only if it pleases you. Life is too short to do things you don't want to do. (You DO want to, don't you???)
Happy New Year

Ellen Kemper said...

Sorry girls, but I had to turn on the word verification thing - getting 50 or so spam comments a day....

If that doesn't stop it, I'll have to nix anonymous comments.
