Happy New Year!!

Just wanted to pop on and wish you all a peaceful, blessed and Happy 2011! Every year I try to pick one word that will be my reminder for what I want to do/accomplish. Sadly, I was trying to remember what my word was for last year and I couldn't! So I went back through my blog and figured out it was 'Nourish'. Turns out, I must have subliminally remembered it! This was the year I went back to the gym and worked out regularly. I also started my Nutritional Cleansing program and lost ten pounds. I nourished my relationships and my soul, too. So, as I look toward this year, I think I'm going to choose the word, Savor. I have so many things to be thankful for and I want to remind myself to savor all of them. Ryan is growing up so quickly and I want to savor my time with him. I want to savor the goodness in my friendships, the love of my family and savor my love of paper crafting. So, overall, I think this word will work for me!

Finally, I'll leave you with a card I made.




I used Prima's Paisley Road line on it. The horn was made by rollilng a little cone. I used a Say It In Crystals swirl for the stuff coming out of the horn. (What on earth would you call that? Spit is the only thing that came to mind...LOL!)

Thanks for stopping by and for all of your lovely comments! I appreciate your taking the time to read my little blog here.

Have a great New Year!!
