I signed up for my first tag swap. It was a Christmas tag swap and my partner was Myrna at My Enchanted Home. We both got behind but did get our tags done and sent before Christmas!
I want to thank Myrna and share the great tag she made me!
I was so happy to receive this adorable tag!
Myrna also sent me some cute gifts!
A very cute Christmas pin, cookie cutters and these wonderful napkins..one says JOY and the other PEACE. I love them! Oh and there was candy but somehow it disappeared!
I made these tags for her and while I enjoyed making them I see I have a long way to go in my creativity!
I bought some glitter and other items so I'm hoping my next tags will be
My sweet friend Deb also sent me a tag...
I love this tag and I am inspired by Deb to make more tags to share with friends!
I also want to thank my sweet friend Shara at Monkeybox! She posted a thrifty find of cute snowmen and I fell in love. Next think I knew they arrived at my house!
Shara sent these to me in the midst of a medical emergency concerning her Mom. What a wonderful friend. Shara's Mom is doing much better but there is still a long road of physical therapy ahead.
I have chosen my 'word' for 2013
There were hints throughout December on my blog and even my 'tag' and gifts from Myrna had my word....so fun to get them when no one knew!
Yes my word for 2013
I have decided to choose JOY!
It is such a positive word and that is how I feel about this coming year!
Definition of JOY
: a state of happiness or felicity : bliss
: a source or cause of delight
Often used around Christmas, I think it's a word that work's well all year
To celebrate my year of JOY I am also starting a new party.
Gratitude Sunday will start this week and I hope you will join in.
Any post that shares Gratitude is welcome!
I am going to have this party the first Sunday of each month. If it is desired by the participants we can do it weekly but I think monthly to start!
I welcome your feedback!
So I hope to see you Sunday January 6, 2013
Wishing you JOY,
