Goodbye 2014

As 2014 ends and we look forward to 2015, I want to wish my friends and family a Happy New Year.
So much is happening in January this year that I know it will fly by. At the end of the month, Mike will be marrying the love of his life, Liana. We have been terribly busy planning the wedding and making sure this is a special day for these two.
I'd like to promise to blog more but that may not happen. So I'm going to say instead that there are things I hope to do better.
Spend more time with the people I love
Be a better friend
Appreciate the wonderful people I have in my life
Take better care of myself
Communicate better - not just texting and emails
Work hard 
Accept things as they come and not dwell on things I cannot change 
That's quite a list but it will be my challenge for 2015.

Project Life

It's hard to see from the glare but I attended a Project Life class today at Too Younique. I am so glad that Heather had guest teacher, Jess, come and help us get comfortable with Project Life. I have 5  core kits and had not used any of them yet. I was able to do some of my Cruise 2011 photos today and can't wait till I can do some more. For vacation photos, this is the only way to go! 
Stay tuned for some more PL fun!

A "Hoot" of a wedding.

I was privlaged enough to be included in the wedding celebration of John and Louisa Stares last evening. Margie, mother of the groom is my "bud" and loves owls. Keeping in the colors of the wedding, and bringing owls into the picture, I created this wedding card. I had seen the "wedding owls" on Pinterest and thought it was a great idea. That Stampin Up owl punch has a million and one uses. 
We had a great meal, super fun table and Jeff and I even did a little dancing!

Wish I Was Back in Cuba

I've been home less than one week and I'm already wishing I could be back in Cuba. Who could blame me. It's hard to believe that my vacation has come and gone. It seemed to take its time getting here and it's already over. Matt and I had a great time. The resort was very nice, met some wonderful people and the weather could not be beat. I enjoyed many a day, relaxing by the pool, reading, snoozing and people watching. The recreation team at the resort managed daily to get people up doing all kinds of crazy things. It was most entertaining!
Tomorrow we are expecting ANOTHER snow storm! Oh how I miss Cuba! Will this blessed winter ever end???

Cuba bound

Well the day has finally arrived! I am at the airport waiting to head to Cuba for some sun and warm weather! I am so tired of this winter! 
Fell in love with this Tilley hat and had to take it with me! The look on my face when the clerk asked me to fill out the warrantee card must have been priceless! I've never owned a piece of clothing that came with its own warrantee! 
Will do my best to bring home some warmer weather! Take care friends-see you soon!

A Wonderful Day at the Bug!

Not only did I get to scrapbook today with friends but I also created 5 more cards for The Loonies for Lindor Crop. The crop is on June 21st and these cards as well as others will be for sale.
Joanne took care of us very well again with pitas, chili, soup and dessert for lunch and chicken, pasta veggies and salad for dinner. Oh ya and more dessert! 
It was a wonderful way to spend a Saturday in February.

Helping a Friend!

Enjoying a crop at The Bug with some friends tonight. Decided to finish prepping the cards for Margie's son's wedding reception. 
I can't wait for the reception and a chance to wish John and Louisa congrats in person.
