I hope everyone enjoyed their Holiday season. It was fun seeing everyone’s Christmas decorations, you are all so very creative!  I finally got all my Christmas put away and semi cleaned my house.  I usually find one or two little decorations that I forgot, so it goes in the closet with the forgotten fall, halloween and spring decorations.    Pretty soon, I will have more in my closet than my attic.
I spent a lot of time in the shop the past few weeks.  First I completely rearranged all my shelves, moved tables, organized and cleaned it from top to bottom. It felt good to get some new  energy stirring in there.  (Thanks Z from Old Grey Mare Primitives for lighting a fire under me!)
Then I got started on some necklaces with some great vintage jewelry, keys and “stuff” I have collected the last couple of months.
As I create each piece, I think of a word and what it represents to me or how it may made someone else feel.





and my favorite word of all

Even though I Love the word HOPE, I picked the word COURAGE for my word this year.
To be brave, to face my own fears, to be strong, stand up straight…To take that step without wavering…
What is your word for the year?
