Hello! I'm a little late, but wanted to wish you a very happy, healthy & creative New Year! New Years Day marks the anniversary of my blog...with I started on January 1st 2007. I cannot believe I've been blogging regularly for a full seven years! WOW! Where has the time gone? With that said...I've been pretty much MIA since before Christmas as far as my blog is concerned. We were without power here for several days right before Christmas so that made finishing up all the last minute Christmas details a real challenge!
I was in the middle of painting a dozen wine glasses for some wine themed gifts and was limited to painting near a window during daylight hours, same goes for wrapping gifts. Hopefully I learned my lesson as far as waiting until the last minute! (but I kinda doubt it!) I had purchased all the supplies I needed to paint the wine glasses way back in October, but I just had to wait until December 21st to get started!
We also had family from out of state staying with us for this past week after Christmas. (thankfully we had power by then!) We had a lot of fun, but no time for stamping.
Despite the challenges I faced, my first attempt at painting wine glasses turned out fairly well, and everyone who received them liked them.
I didn't do as much baking as I planned since no power means no oven! But prior to the outage I went to my annual cookie exchange. I had cute gift bags in which to put my cookies, but first they had to go into ziplocks to keep fresh. Plain old naked ziplocks are kind of boring right? So, I got out my White Stazon and my Festive Flurry stamp set and fixed that problem.
With our power back on, our house guests back in North Carolina, and my hubby back at work after a week long vacation I finally have time to get into my stamp room and play with some new stuff!!!
Thanks for visiting me today, especially to those who have been visiting me since 2007! Lets make 2014 a GREAT year!
