New work for the New Year!

Happy New Year's everyone! Out with the old, in with the new is my motto. Anyone have any interesting NY's resolutions? I try not to make them, but I'm actually going to this year, AND stick to them.

As some of you may know, the past 12 months have been extremely difficult for me; a serious head injury, losing my beloved horse, a major surgery, and the letting go of several not-so-healthy friendships. Well enough of that gloom and doom I say! I'm onto a bigger, better, more positive life/year ahead. I'm vowing to get healthy, rid myself of any negativity; either by others or myself, and be surrounded by a light of positivity, happiness and love all around me!

So having said all that, I'm working today on some new fun pieces for Valentine's day and the coming Spring; hearts, rabbits, and all things blooming. First I better clean up this craft room!

Jeannine,
Just stopping by to say hello after reading about your recent surgery on Kristyen's blog, I hope you are recovering well and doing better. BTW I know what you mean about toxic friends, I recently ended a " friendship" with someone I had known since grade school...
blessings,Flora

Hi Flora - Thanks for thinking of me. Yes, doing better. And I do know what you mean to by toxics. I've gotten rid of 3 so far! Ouch. Painful and sad, but it just has to be healthier for all involved.
Have a super wonderful, prosperous 2010! I just know we will!!!
Take care, Jeannine

Thanks David! That's really sweet. Health would be a very good beginning, and then I'll add some success to that too. Yep hoping 2010 is a great year! For you too! Much success, health and happiness! You're a great friend and I truly appreciate you :)

Hello! Instead of taking up space in Facebook I'd thought I'd respond to you here about storage for your paints. If you have the table or shelf space, how about those small, plastic 3-drawer tabletop units? I think Target may have those, or the Container Store. I have used similar ones before. I have links if you can't find them on the net.

Hi! Thanks for the suggestion - feel free to take up all the space on Facebook you want! I love comments and hearing from everyone. Thank you! Jeannine
