It's been 4 months, so you probably guessed this, but this blog is on an indefinite hiatus.

Over the years this space has brought a lot of joy, connected me with some fabulous people (many of whom I keep in touch with via social media), and been a great outlet for my creativity. Right now, however, I'm focusing my energies on my handmade business. When, if, & how I'll use this space is the future is unplanned.

All content and freebies remain (and traffic is pretty heavy/constant for those, THANKS!), but I will be removing the Facebook exclusive one. Please keep me in your blogreaders and subscriptions - I'll pop back at some point!

A Wish for the New Year!

In 2013, I shared a lot of my little designs for scrapbooking and Project Life. In 2014, I backed off from that so much as I was focusing my energy on creating and making in my personal sphere. In 2015, I'm going to see if I can find a little balance between those two approaches.

As he has done in various years, one of my very favorite authors, Neil Gaiman, shared a fresh wish for the new year of 2015 on New Year's Eve. One of the first things I ever created for the sharing on the blog was a set of these wishes from previous years, and when I read this one I had to make it into something to slip into a scrapbook page or pin up on an inspiration wall because the words are just lovely.

I hope you will enjoy this little gift for a fresh start to a new and wonderful year! 2015 can be as wonderful as we make it.

Hug too much. Smile too much. And, when you can, love.
