|New Year's Card From 2009|
I have lots of plans for the coming year and you are at the heart of those plans. I am going to do my best to post every day of 2012. The website is under way. E-mails are starting again. Please make sure that firstname.lastname@example.org is in your email address book so that you don't miss out on all the news. If you don't recieve any e-mails from me, then check here as I will post each week's e-mail on the blog. That way you'll always be in the loop.
As always, the shop is YOUR Stamping Cottage. If there is something that you would like to see or a class you would like to have, please let me know. All Christmas stamps will be packed away next week. The shop re-opens on the 10th with a Mouse in the House class. E-mail me or call my cell phone to sign up for classes while the shop is closed this week.
Life news: The oldest daughter and her husband were home for a couple of days after Christmas, along with their two dogs. OMgosh! We had a wonderful time, but with a total of four dogs running around, to say it was wild is an understatement. My two dogs are 15 lbs and 50 lbs. Very docile, laid back, both are older dogs. Daughter's two dogs are 92 lbs and 25 pounds. Both VERY active. The larger is 2 years old, the smaller is 9 months. My dogs are worn out! We had a blast though. We went to the Festival of Lights which I had never done before and made a trip to Knit Happens on Monmouth in Newport. Daughter thought she had died and gone to Heaven. I have never seen so much yarn in all my life! She's self-taught, amazingly talented crocheter (not sure if this is a word), and is now teaching herself to knit. Son-in-law is making a rug for their porch out of rope. My son is home for the spring semester while he does his student teaching. So the trombone will constantly be playing. Youngest daughter is doing great in Colorado, making a life for herself, and staying very busy. She did say she is getting a tattoo on Tuesday. Of course that was last night as she was out with friends having drinks, ringing in the New Year. She knows I am not a fan, but she's an adult, what are you going to do. She's awesome! Very strong and determined to make her dreams a reality. Life is good at the Croushore home and I hope it is at your home as well. I wish you a healthy and happy New Year.
