Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Be-lated Merry Christmas to all my friends!  I can't quite believe it's been over a month since I have blogged.  2011 was a busy and exciting year for me- but with the excitement and fortune of our branch at work growing, my personal life suffered a bit.  I have missed blogging- but what better time to try to restart again than on the eve of a new year?!!  I'm full of excitement for 2012.  I am already contemplating goals and making lists of things I want to get done this year.  I want to finish organizing and decorating my craft room this year- spend less time cleaning in there and more time creating.  I want to get back to my art journal this year- I have not touched my journal in months-it's been neglected right along with my blog-and I have lots of mini projects swimming around in my brain.  I have so many things I want to work on in 2012 and that I want to accomplish.  I think that is my favorite part of a New Year- the excitement you feel for what's to come and the plans to make.  I've seen a few bloggers in years past choose a word for the year that symbolizes what they want 2012 to be about for them.  My word would be "reconnect".  I would like to reconnect with being creative, with visiting friends, with blogging and with taking care of myself.  Do you choose a word for the year?  Would you like to share yours with me- I'd love to hear it! Before I go-- Miko the Pomeranian says hello- he's missed you all too :)

My 2011 word was simplify and I plan to keep it and add HONOR for 2012.

SO GLAD that you are back. :)
I love that little Miko-he looks so much like my Cheech. :)

I want to "lose" this year.
Weight, fears, inhibitions...
All that crap. :P

Hi Kim. Welcome back. I just saw you on Claudia's blog and I was so pleasantly surprised! I don't have a word. I make changes when I feel they're needed. I do the best I can with the time that I have and what I can't do today, I simply finish off the day after or whatever. I'm just happy to be alive. I don't make resolutions anymore. I hope you have a wonderful New Year. Please give a hug to Miko for me. He's just so adorable!

Dark Squirrel Victoria said...

Hugs to you and Miko!

Happy New Year Kim :)

Happy New Year my friend. Reconnect sounds good. I haven't thought about an actual word for the whole year but I have titled myself 'the Juggernaut that is Wendy'. I want to be a creative tornado. I can't wait to see your projects come to be. Cheers!

Lucille said...

Hi again Kim. I did not have a word when I wrote my previous comment. But last night while reading a blog, the lady said her word for 2012 was serenity. And, suddenly, the word peace came into my mind and I just knew that peace would be my word. To be at peace with everything and everyone in spite of everything.

Kim said...

Ascension- so good to see you-hope to catch up with you soon! Holiday greetings to you- hugs!!

Lucille- I see you found a word and it's a wonderful one! I hope that 2012 brings you lots of peace- if we all choose that word for the year what a difference it would make ♥ I've missed you Lucille-thank you for keeping up with me :)

Victoria- huge hugs and Happy new Years to you also ♥

Zlatica- I have missed you also! I hope your days are busy and filled with art and laughter!! Happy New Year to you!!

Wendy- The Juggernaut! I LOVE it!!!! I hope you post a lot because I am struggling to get back at it and you always inspire me :) Happy New Year!!!

Miko looks great! Gorgeous coat too!
I'm so glad you're back. And I love your excitement. I don't have a theme word for the year. I'll think of it before the year ends. LOL! Happy New Year!
