Last year I became a Close to my Heart Consultant and demonstrator. Took part in my first Thrive weekend with my team in Barrie, Ontario. It was nice to get together with so many individuals who are like minded and creative. It was inspiring. Started a CTMHblog that keeps me busy posting. I was lucky to find an Ottawa based group who get together to so some Scrapbooking/cardmaking, inspire each other and talk best practices etc.
I am still fusing glass and making hand made cards and they can be seen in my Etsy store
I did 10 sales and shows over the year some very good and some not so. The organizers I know busted their butts to make them a success but the people just did not come out. However I did sell a few things on Etsy which is great.
So here we are again 2015 already have been applying and have been accepted at a few shows/sales at this point

On the family front much has also happened. Oldest grand daughter started Junior High, made the volleyball team. Grandson started school Junior Kindergarten and loves it. Second oldest had to get braces and expander and is one of best helpers in school and home, the youngest girl is so quirky in such a good way. The family received two lab puppies for Christmas and the household is hopping on any day of the week as the kiddos and puppies grow…They all bring me my greatest joy.
Well better move onto something else before the day is finished…Have a great week…let lots of color and happiness into you life each and every day….
