Life is short. Break the rules, forgive quickly, kiss slowly, love truly, laugh uncontrollably, and never regret anything that makes you smile. We're not quantified; there's no chart of desire. When the roaring flames of your heart have burned down to embers, may you find that you have married your best friend. [Steven Tyler]

It's a Brand New Year!

Wishing you all a very Happy New Year with good health, good fortune and great contentment to you all.

May 2009 bring you fun, creativity in abundance, and lots of new crafting adventures!

Just for now, I will leave you with this.... it cracks me up every time I come across it:

Life should
not be a journey
to the grave
With intention of
arriving safely
In a pretty, and
well preserved body.
rather to skid
in broadside,
chocolate in one hand, martini in the other,
used up,
Totally worn out
and loudly proclaiming

Have fun and happy crafting....

Puts a new and rather decadent spin on 'Do not go gentle into that good night, rage, rage against the dying of the light.' Love it!
Happy New Year to you and your family Lynn.

Hi Syy, I wish I could lay claim to this piece but I can't. I don't know who the original author is. It's a piece I came across many years ago long before PC's and used in one of my art journals and I keep seeing it now around the internet but with no acknowledgement to the original author. If you would like to use it from my blog, please do. If anyone does know who pen'd the original, I'd love to know.

To all of you who've left such lovely comments... I thank each and every one of you. I hope that your year has started well and that it holds many wonderful things for you to enjoy!

Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog Lynn, much appreciated! Hope the back pain and sciatica ease off soon, know how you feel as I am a sufferer too!
