Words for 2013!

A friend shared this with me recently...good to have focus!

"You've got this life and while you've got it, you'd better kiss like you only have one moment, try to hold someone's hand like you will never get another chance to, look into people's eyes like they're the last you'll ever see, watch someone sleeping like there's no time left, jump if you feel like jumping, run if you feel like running, play music in your head when there is none, and eat cake like it's the only one left in the world!"  - C. JoyBell C.

and I'd like to add to, sew, sew...and keep sewing!

Cheers to a really great year ahead!

It's been a year...

Last day of 2012.  I'm actually very glad.  It's been a year...

As the year comes to a close, I look back on it and realize while it had it's down moments, it truly was a good year.  As most things, it did not turn out quite the way I may have planned but life never seems to really turn out that way anyway!

Machine Embroidery...
The past few weeks have flown by.  I finally took the plunge and started my photography business officially!!  While I am in the process of getting things started, I've managed to get some sewing done.  WooHoo!

Looking forward to 2013!  Lots on my to do list and sewing is at the top of my list!

Happy New Year!  (just realized I didn't send this yesterday, the 31st!)...
