New Year's Eve.....

As this year is winding down, I want to take a moment and tell you how very much you mean to me!  This has been a very hard year for me in a lot of ways, with lots of changes in my life.  But it has also been a good year too.  I have learned some good lessons along the way and feel that I have grown as a person.  We just never know what curve balls life is going to throw our way but I guess the key is to just keep moving.  I've always felt lthat a moving target is harder to hit!  My goal for the new year is to try and be more creative and to practice what I preach.  I'm always telling you to "Breathe" and this year I want to give that a try .

I appreciate each and every one of my followers and your faithful visits mean so much.  Your comments are so dear to me.  Thank you again for being there. 

Now I want to share a box I altered for a Christmas gift to my daughter.

 
I found this jewelry box on clearance with a big scratch along the back.  I loved the shape of the box and the fact there was a window top to it.  Other than the scratch, the box was perfect; so I just had to have it.  So I made flowers to cover the scratch and it made a wonderful gift for my daughter for Christmas. 
 
That's it for me this morning.  I'm still trying to get my house back in shape after the holiday rush. 
I hope you have wonderful New Year's Eve plans and that your holiday is a safe one.  Be sure and come back to visit on Wednesday as it will be Heartfelt Creations Wednesday!
