Happy & Healthy to All

A quick Thank You to Apartment Therapy for featuring my tutorial. I love those guys!

And now my Sweet Blogging Friends, I am cutting out early this Holiday Season. As you know, when my kids are off, so am I. I will be around from time to time visiting your blogs and sending a few emails.

This was a fantastic year for my little blog. I could not have enjoyed it without all of your support and comments. It's the exchange of ideas and thoughts with all of you that make it so enjoyable for me. Thank you for all of your support.

In-between torturing my family with my micro-parenting and clicking around online.....I will be catching up on my reading. I have had several books waiting for me on my Kindle.

Brene Brown is famous for giving the TED talk about The Power of vulnerability
