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 :)
