Christmas, a new year and plans!

 Hello friends!

I hope you all had a magical Christmas 

and are looking forward to a brand new year soon upon us!

Ours was absolutely wonderful, 

especially through the eyes of our 3 year old granddaughter, Alice!

She weaves a light ~ and love ~ into our families like no one else <3

I am SO EXCITED for 2022!

I adore even numbers and can't help shake the feeling 

"it's going to be a good, really good  year!"

Let's see ...

my word of the year has already chosen me.

I say that every year on my WOTY blog post ~

and it's always true.

I don't choose one - it choses me.

And for the 1st time ever,  my 2022  Word Of The Year makes history!

I also have my One Plus Twelve stamp ready for 2022.

That one I did fight just a little bit 

 mostly because it's been with me for about 8 months!

I kept thinking "This one? Are you sure?  Like REALLY sure?"

every time I'd see the stamp.

And I swear, if stamps could smile, this one does.

I'm convinced of it.

Like a gentle reminder ......... I'm still here.  

I'm also scaling back on my card groups 

and focusing more on my YouTube channel.

If you are interested, you can follow my crafty adventures there!

I have some grand plans for my channel 

and am really excited for my 2022 YT goals.

Shown above are some shaker polaroids I created just for fun -

and more things like these will be on my channel next year.

Stay tuned!

Honestly, I can't wait!

2022 - I'm comin' atcha :)

Thanks for stopping by!
