Happy New Year!

Hello my wonderful peeps!  I indeed hope that you had a fabulous holiday and that you are experiencing a happy start to the new year.  Mine was a bit rocky getting off the ground and I am hopful that the first couple days of January are not a reflection of how the rest of the year is going to unfold.  I have high hopes and big dreams this year and I am so glad that you are all here to be a part of it.  Whether all my hopes and dreams take flight...well, only time can tell.  Hard work and positive thought will only get me so far.  I'll do my part to get there and the universe will have to decide the rest. 

There is one new feature that I am following through with.  I'm going to introduce it tomorrow so you will just have to come back then to find out what it is.  Only the fourth day of January and I am already keeping you in suspense.  Hee, hee.

Right now I just wanted to pop in and wish everyone the happiest of new years and of course to offer up a little treat.  It comes from my Celebration mini kit so I think that it works well for a New Year's gift!

I plan on another year filled with reflection, inspiration and of course lots of treats.  I hope that you will continue to join me on this crazy ride that is my life and that I will be able to continue to rely on your counsel.  Your thoughts and suggestions are always considered very carefully.  Without you guys, there is no Décosse's Dynamite Doodles!

Best wishes for a prosperous and healthy 2014!

What a great background paper Lisa, I see that you are starting the way that you mean to go on. You really provide so much inspiration, especially to someone like me who has totally lost her 'mojo' to someone else. I am hoping that it will return soon as it has been away for quite a while now and nothing is bringing it back. HELP PLEASE. lol Any suggestions will be gratefully received. Hugs, Jen xx

And a very Happy New Year to you and yours too Lisa, and thanks so much for the beautiful paper here too, it´s gorgeous.
I too are in for really high hopes for this year. Last year wasn´t my best year at all, so this one can only get better LOL, and if we all stay positive and believe in it, I´m sure, it will be so.
So to a wonderful year to everyone, let´s hope, it´ll be the best year ever for all of us.

Happy New Year Lisa !! Glad you missed out on all the crazy power outages. It's amazing how people where willing to help out. We win in Trees down in our area the city was cutting down dangerous limbs all summer long too so there is no way they could have predicted this but they worked as quickly as they could to get us all fixed up. You really win in the snow department 2 feet wow. Stay toasty and warm and all the best to you in the new year
hugs Nikki
