Farewell 2010, Hello New Year

Another Auld Lang Syne.  For me, 2010 was a wonderful year.  There were sad times, frustrating times, but many, many, many happy and illuminating personal moments. 

Joy all around...
We adopted two furbabies from a local rescue group - Sonny and Cher - who along with our first pup, Squirt, bring our family so much love and joy (okay and triple the work, too!).  My human family members are all thriving and healthy.  How thankful I am.

Creative Inspiration...
I started blogging not too long ago as a way to embark on my own personal journey of finding creative expression.  This year I re-discovered how much I love crochet thanks to so many of you wonderful bloggers.  I didn't realize how delightful it would be to 'meet' such a supportive and kind community throughout the world.  It is truly motivating to make these connections.

So goodbye Old Year and a big, wholehearted welcome to 2011!

Happy New Year and I wish you many days of health, happiness and creative inspiration :-)
