Happy New Year Friends!! ~~ Creative Paperclay® Blog Hop ~~ Upcoming Artwork on STJ!!!



HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!!

Ok ... I am a little late getting out this post,
but my intentions are sincere when I say ...


Kiss 2013 goodbye and say hello to 2014!   
I hope this year brings you all much joy and happiness.  
I wish you health, wealth and a family that loves and holds you close 
to their hearts.  
May all your dreams and goals come true.  
Set your goals high and if you come close, you have achieved much.  
Keep God first and everything will fall in line.  
Like me, he wants only good for you. 

Have the happiest of New Year's!!

I hope your holidays were wonderful and that you are now getting into the routine of another year.   I am excited about this year and what possibilities it holds.  It is a new beginning for us all.  Hopefully, I will be able to live up to goals I set for myself.  That is always a challenge.  So far, I am late getting out of the gate, but sometimes it's good to be the underdog.  I will just plug along, keep on track, and see what happens.  

I don't really set resolutions for myself, as I always feel bad when I don't achieve them or even partially achieve them.  So this year instead of a resolution, I have a theme.  My theme is "Lighter and Brighter".  Lighter - meaning I need to purge my old things, clean the clutter, in my studio, my closet, everywhere ... even in my mind.  LOL!  Hopefully, by doing so, I will be Brighter and more accomplished.  It is amazing how much stuff clings to you over the course of a year.  I have come to the resolution that I am like a lint magnet.  So, I need to shed these things and lighten up!  How about you?  What are your goals this year?

I also wanted to let you know about an upcoming special event.  Creative Paperclay® will be hosting a blog hop on February 8th.  So mark your calendars.  It should be a lot of fun!  You will be able to hop from each Design Team Member's blogs to see their latest Valentine tutorial.  I will have one posted on my site in which you will be able to win what I make.  I am still coming up with my concept art piece.  Wish me luck! 

In the meantime, go to www.creativepaperclay.blogspot.com  and check out all the tips and tutorials the Design Team has listed there.


 I will be posting another paperclay tip on the blogsite this Sunday, January 11th.  I would love for you to stop by and say hi!

On Tuesday, January 13th, SpookyTime Jingles updates their site with new artwork from some amazingly, talented Halloween Artists.  I am still so happy to be a part of this group.  It really was a pinch me moment when Charmed Confections was added to the site last year.  I am humbled to be among these artists, as I am still striving to excel in my artwork.

I will have a new Halloween piece available for purchase on the site.  It is a sweet, little witch.  She does have a wicked sister as well ... we'll see if I can get her done in time too!  :)
