Happy New Year 2018!

What a year 2017 was for me!  I started a new career in mental health, I got a new sewing/quilt machine and a new Scan n’ Cut machine!  Other excitement in our family life includes welcoming our new grandson and my husband retired.  It seems like the year was just getting started when it ended.

I am really looking forward to a fantastic year and plan to incorporate more crafting in my life.  I am new to sewing and managed to sew seven stockings for Christmas gifts to our grown kids and grandson.  I was very pleased with my first sewing project to say the least!  Which one do you like the best?

I also created stocking themed themed cards to go with their stockings.  The kids were stunned when they realized I made them.

Since I was busy sewing, I did not make but a few handmade cards to send out.  Basically, I ran out of time.  Here are a few cards that I created.

For New Years my husband and I had dinner at a local winery.  It was very pleasant and I made some really neat New Year treats and cut outs.  Check these out!

Have a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
