Happy New Year

Happy New Year!! I'm a little late...what's new ;-) Hope you all had a GREAT Christmas and New Years. Both were wonderful for us. With the kids being 2 and 4 this year, Christmas was a blast----they loved opening up all their gifts. After things settled down, Josie served us all "tea" with her new tea set.

For New Years, we went out with our Friends, Christa (from Motivating Mommies) and her husband Jay. We had dinner at a nice restaurant then to a nice hotel that had a lounge in it. It was really pretty inside, and very hip and retro---for our town anyways.

Here's a pic of the bar. And, we managed to stay up past midnight---which doesn't happen every year.

I even managed to whip up a necklace and pair of earrings for my friends daughter. She called me three days before her daughter's dance to ask me if I could make a cheetah themed set. I was really nervous as I didn't know what her daughter liked and she couldn't pick it up until the day of the dance---and you know how teenage girls are. Turned out, she LOVED it---and I'm commissioned to make her prom jewelry.

Best Wishes for a Great 2009!!

Happy New Year dear friend! Looks like you had a wonderful Christmas. It's such fun when the children are at that age, all the excitement and energy is contagious. I'm so happy you enjoyed your New Years too (beautiful as always)! The lounge you went to is fabulous - love all the bottles and color.

What a gorgeous set you created, it matches just perfectly. Isn't it a wonderful feeling to hit it dead on!?!

Wishing you a fabulous week ahead♥
