*** “Create” pattern is by Kristy at Quiet Play Designs. *** I don’t know about you but I am excited to be starting a new year. It’s funny how a date on the calendar can make such a difference but the future today seems wide open and full of possibilities. For the last couple of years, I have found it helpful and motivating to go over all my finishes, goals, and works in progress and then set goals for the new year. I find it gives me direction and focus .
