New Year

A new year is about to start.

I can't remember the last New Years party I went to. Actually I've probably only been to half a dozen actual New Year's 

My night will be quiet and consist of lots of food, movies, and spending time with whatever friends and family is around, as it usually does. Tonight it will be just me and my parents. We'll see if we even make it to midnight.

I was very blessed this year with lots of different things. It showed me how much my Mother really does listen to what I say.

Misc. stuff...

A lot has happened in the last week or so since I've last updated. I know I need to make more updates than I do, but it has been a busy time.

The Chaotic Goddess Swap's 12 Days of Christmas has started! I've had great fun unwrapping a present every day.


I'm going to have to try this again!

I got some good business going thru AzSG's. Our Facebook page is doing great, and I'm really happy about what I'm doing right now.

The picture above is a new one that was taken at Erin's wedding. Dennis (her new brother in law, and my brother's brother in law) had all his stuff set up on the stage and was doing portrait's. So, I had one done. I even took off the oxygen so I got a good picture. I'm really happy about how this turned out. It's been a while since I've had one of these done.

I've also been busy with my Christmas projects. I'm on the last one. SOOOOO excited about it. I've also purchased all gifts for my Mom's stocking. She always is so great at doing stockings for my Dad and I every year. Even for us kids when we were younger, and she never got one herself. So, a few years ago I started getting stocking stuffers for her. I'm really happy about the stuff I got this year. I really thought about what I was getting, and started further in advance instead of my usual day before Christmas. I'm sure she will love it all!

5 AWESOME things that happened this fall...

I'm taking a page from My So-Called Chaos' book and going to tell you the 5 awesome things that happened this fall.

1> I got a logo made for AzSG. I'm still so excited about this. It's all my own and nobody has one like it!

2> I participated in my first two crafter's boutiques. I was able to show off all the stuff I've made, and make some new friends and get a little help on the money front with LOTS of people purchasing different items. It was nerve wracking, tiring, and oh so fun!

3> Kennadee turned 1. I get to see video of this adorable little niece of mine every day. I'm so lucky to have a sister who takes so many pictures and video's of her baby, that I'm able to watch her grow up from 700 miles away. 

4> My Buddy turned 12. I can't believe that my nephew is 12. He is such a little man now, not the little boy that I remember years ago that would say "shoo fly don't bother me!" whenever there was a fly bothering him. 

5> AzSG's Facebook page reached 300 likes! I never thought this would happen. I've had so much support from family, and friends, and strangers. I appreciate every single one of you!
