Special Wishes for You

Dear Kids,
If you celebrate Christmas – I wish you a very merry one!
And may we all enjoy a 2014 that’s filled with happiness and good health.

Christmas Eve

Thank you, as always, for stopping by . . .
See you in the New Year! 😀



I’d love to hear your thoughts!

I don’t know everything . . .

But I’ve learned that life’s too short for New Year’s resolutions!

So, with that in mind . . .

I wish you a 2013 that’s overflowing with happy possibilities and not one moment of stress.

May your fears melt away and your fondest dreams come true.

May good health, increased wealth, and much love surround you.



P.S. This year I will be posting mid-week instead of on Mondays. I’m planning to mix things up a bit with a new feature or two, and maybe we’ll even get back to having a “weekly question”. Have I told you lately how much I appreciate that you take the time to stop by and visit? Well, I do! 😀

Ah Ah Ah Choo

Hi Kids!

Don’t be afraid. The squeaky voice you hear really is me, Crystal.

I sound like “Miss Kitty” from the old TV show, Gunsmoke.

(Hope some of you are old enough to remember Kitty.) 😉

I’ve had sort of a laryngitis/cold thing going on, here. Christmas was wonderful but I went through most of it feeling under the weather.

It began a week before the holidays when Sir Beads developed a raspy throat. I tried my best, but wasn’t able to escape getting it, too. Just around the time Santa and the reindeer left the North Pole, I succumbed. We’re getting better now, but if I never see another cough drop, it will be too soon!


Enough about that. I’m really here to chat with you kids one more time before the year ends! 🙂

I want to wish all of you a Happy, Healthy, Creative, Prosperous, and Fun-filled New Year!!!

(See you early next week with the next Bead Challenge!) 😀



Friday Favorites

For the first Friday Favorites of 2010 (Yikes, it’s going to be tough to get used to writing that!), here’s a darling vintage card and a special quotation to match!

This Little Miss is carrying in a new calendar for the new year. I just love that her bouquet has shamrocks for good luck in the days ahead, and forget-me-nots as reminders of special moments in the previous year.


And, isn’t this quote perfect for today? I’m feeling inspired already!

“We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year’s Day.”

~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

May 2010, and every new year, be brimming with peace, prosperity, love, and much joy for all of us! 😀
