Where on EARTH has the year gone?? Could it possibly be that Christmas has ALREADY come and gone once again?? And here it is, New Year's Eve ...

I have to say that I am really proud of myself ... I set a goal for the year to send birthday/anniversary cards to everyone on the Weixler side of the family this year, and I did it!! That's over 100 cards!!! It's been so fun watching the reactions of those I love ... there hasn't been a single family gathering this year where I haven't been thanked (multiple times!) for the cards have been sending out all year ... and it's also very rewarding to know that I am actually DOING something with the things I create (not to mention that I have been creating with more of a "purpose" this year, as many of my cards have been made with someone specific that I love in mind).

Which brings me to Thumper ... I made this little card for my cute little cousin, Elisabeth. She turned 6 yesterday! I vaguely remember being 6 ...

It was wonderful having my brother and sister-in-law with us over Christmas. They went home on Thursday, and I have to say I miss them already. It's great having them here when they get the chance to come!
