My Word for 2012

Every year, I pick a word to inspire growth and change, and a fresh perspective and I create a project to showcase the word. I hope that my word for this year will bring me to a new level of peace and joy and hence, will rub off on my friends! Strangely enough, this year, the artwork came before the word.  In fact I created the canvas as part of a blog hop on Marian Smith's Arty Addict facebook group, earlier this year and wasn't quite sure how to finish it.

As I reflected on what would be best for me in 2012, I realized that there was only one word for it, serenity.  Suddenly, I knew exactly what to use, and here it is!

I wish for us all, less stress and a whole lot more serenity!


Happy New Year Giveaway Winner!

Happy New Year everyone!  Well I just came home from a yummy dinner with hubby and thought I would put an end to the wait!  So having used, here is the winner:

If you look at the comments, you will see that the second comment was made by Ronni who is getting back into stamping/scrapbooking! I've known Ronnie for a number of years and she is very, very talented!  I always thought it was a shame that she stopped creating and sharing! I am sure that she will make good use of the stamps and maybe we can convince her to send me a picture of something she creates to share with all of you!

As the winner of my Christmas giveaway did not come forward by the 27th, in fact, I still have not heard back, I am sorry to say that she has been disqualified. I will draw a new Christmas giveaway winner from all the comments received in 2011 and post that here tomorrow or Tuesday!

Congrats Ronni and as usual, you have one week from today to contact me!

Hugs everyone and stay safe and warm! It's getting downright chilly out there!
