Happy New Year, "2015"

Well hello Y'all!!!!    Do you feel any different, age wise than you did yesterday?    Me neither, but we are starting another year and for the life of I can't figure out where the old year went.    I may have to go on  a scavenger hunt to see if I can find it.   hahaha     In the mean time, I guess I will just try to make the most out of what I have, and that is today; right now.    "Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery and today is the present".    So, I'm gonna enjoy today as the gift that today is.    It is a gift!    We will never get today back again.    So, lets just try to make the most of each and every day of 2015.   "No regrets!"

I do hope and pray that each and every one of y'all had a wonderfully Merry Christmas and that you found time to celebrate the Christ Child.    After all, Christ is the reason for the Season. 

I just wanted to take the time to thank each and every one of y'all who has supported me by your visits, by being a follower, by your wonderful comments, and by your likes to my blog in 2014.    I have been overwhelmed by the number of hits I have had on my blog and I have y'all to thank for that.    Thank You!!!!    I hope to be able to share more videos in this new year and more fun projects.    I am certainly not an artist, but I do love to play in my craft room and I love to share what I do with y'all.

With that said, I do have a few pics that I want to share with y'all today and I hope you enjoy them.

Hubby and I got out for a bit yesterday, the last day of 2014 and this is what we got to see!!   It instantly reminded me of quilt batting.   hahahah    I have seen my mother roll out batting on a quilt top and then put the backing over it many times, and this is what this thin layer of clouds reminded me of.   I just thought that was a spectacular sight.
This was the same thing, just a different angle.    Hubby took some pics too, but I just shared mine.   All the pics were lovely.    I just could not get over how beautiful the sky was yesterday.
This pic and the next one is of cards that several of us made during an on-line hangout a while back.   A group of us from the Kraafters Kommunity on Google+ decided we would like to make cards.   So we each got our card design together and made 8 card kits and then mailed each individual one of our card kits and kept one for ourselves.   When everyone had gotten all the kits, then we had a hangout session and it was such a great time.   When all was said and done, each one of us had a bunch of beautiful cards.   It was a really fun time.

This is a poinsettia card I made.    I love that die, I just don't remember off hand who it's by.   It is a perfect size for card fronts though.
This is a flower made with my new little quilling comb.   I am hooked on that thing and will be doing more with it in the near future, so "keep your eyes peeled" for what I will be up to.    hehehe
This is another card made with a quilled cross.   I got my happy birthday sentiment a little crooked, that's ok, I just say I used my crooked eye for lining up the two pieces.    hehehe    Bad joke, no crooked eye, just poor placement on my part.

I hope you enjoyed seeing all these pics and the projects.   I hope to have many more coming up for the new year.    I hope to see all of you back here real soon.

As I leave you today, I leave you with this scripture:  Philippians 4:4  Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice.

Do you have a lot to rejoice about?    If you are alive, you have much to Rejoice about.   Paul had been through the proverbial "wringer" throughout his ministry and here was telling his readers, then and now, to Rejoice!    What ever the circumstance in our lives, Rejoice!    What ever the trials and tribulations we may be going through, Rejoice!    There's gonna be some bad days, but Rejoicing through them is what will help us be victorious over those bad days. 

I pray that as each and every on of us goes into this New Year, that we will go into it Rejoicing, and if we are fortunate to live long enough to see the end of this year, that we will still be Rejoicing!    I pray that God will reveal to each and every one of us that we have a lot to Rejoice about.    I pray that at every turn, we will find something new to be excited about that we can Rejoice over.   Lets call this year the "Year of Rejoicing!"     Does that sound like a plan?    It does to me.

Ladybug, so happy you are feeling better.   Hope to see you soon.   Sweetpea love you bunches.

Happy New Year again!   God loves y'all and so do I!!!   hugs, Patty

  9. Hi Patty,

    Happy New Year to you too, dear friend!

    Thank you so much for being one of the very first to not only visit my blog but to comment for my very first post. It means a lot to me.

    I also notice I have you listed as "Rose" in my sidebar, please remind me to change that if I forget!!! Sheesh.

    I hope this is a wonderful year for you too, with many blessings.

    I love the idea of an online google + card challenge, would you show me how to do this sometime (when I make it home in the near future)? Please? I think it would be so very much fun. Your cards look wonderful.

    Hugs,
    Barb
