Merry Christmas!!

Hi everyone! I know I have been a bit quiet on here lately. As if the Christmas season is not busy enough, we had lots of excitement here as well... And not all good excitement!!
We were in a car accident first... We were driving along the highway while it was snowing... Traffic was slowing down ahead of us, so we did also. All of a sudden... WHAM!!!! A tractor trailor smashed into the back of us!!!!!!!!! We believe that the driver may have fallen asleep... As the roads were not slippery... But who knows! Anyway, that was the beginning of our holiday season. Next, 2 sick kids... Snow storms to cancel out church Christmas concert and Christmas Eve candle light service... Then on Sunday Dec 22, we got another big snow and ice storm... It knocked out our power and telephone!!! It was out all thru Christmas, right thru until Sunday dec 29th!! An entire week with no power!!!
So needless to say, it was a Christmas to remember for sure!  We are well set up and had water, heat and a small generator to run the fridge enough to keep from loosing anything.
But now I am back!! It will take me a bit to get back into the groove... But I'll get there. I need a bit of an attitude adjustment as well,... But that's another story! LOL!
I did want to drop by and wish you all a very merry Christmas!!!! I appreciate your comments and emails so much!  I look forward to a creative filled 2014!!
Later if the week I hope to post some of my favorite projects of 2013 ... So stay tuned!
Until then, Happy creating!


  1. Goodness - how much can happen in such a short time! Glad you are okay and hope the kids are fit and well now. Best to get all the bad stuff out the way in 2013 and embark on a fabulous 2014! xx

  2. WAUW what a Christmas, it has been. Definitely one to remember, I know only too well, as we tryed something simular the very first year we lived here, except we were without any power for 3 weeks, because we couldn´t get any electrician out here in the bad weather LOL, so I know pretty well, how you feel, but I must say, it also had it´s own charme thoug, as we´ve never had sooo much candlelight neither before nor later in life ha ha ha.
    But glad to ehar, you´re back and hopefully all is well and no harm to any of you from the crash either???
    Looking sooo forward to see, what you´ll share with us here in the new year again.
    Hope you and your family will have a very Happy New Year and that 2014 will be the best year ever for all of us.

  3. Good Grief! Happy to hear that you are all fine and back in business. I'll bet that you'll be happy to see New Year's and move on to 2014! But as you said, none of you will ever forget the Dec. of 2013. Happy New Year,

  4. Wow, Tina, what a holiday experience you and your family had. It deserves a journal/mini album all it's own! Glad everyone is safe and well. Looking forward to your creativity for 2014.

  5. yikees, that was a post to remember. It seems a few of us had alot of extra activity from the normal holiday season of events. Hopefully all is well with the family and things can get back to a routine once school starts back. Here's to a great start to 2014!! cheers

  6. My goodness! that was an eventful holiday season! Hope all has settled down now and that everyone is none the worse for wear! Best wishes for a calmer and creative New Year, Tina!!
