and it begins…


It’s arrived! Happy New Year to you! I wish you a wonderful year to come.

Each new year is always a new beginning of possibilities. I wonder what is in store for me this year. I wonder what God has planned.

Usually at the end of December I take some time to look back and remember all the joys and blessings, all the good times and bad this year has brought. The year the month went hurtling by and I find myself a bit bewildered as to what happened. I don’t usually make resolutions but as I think of the year to come, I’m hoping for a little more calm. I’m going to try and take more time for myself. I’m going to make it a priority to enjoy each day as a gift from God and enjoy the simple pleasures.

Since I’m thinking of simple joys, this cup of tea card ties in perfectly. The stamp set used is the new Avocado Arts Sweet Treats Sweetie set which is sooo darling. I’ve paper piece the tea cup and saucer and used my Head Over Heels 6×6 paper pad to add some sweet prints.

Quick Tip: Stitching on a layer of vellum is a great way to see the pattern but highlight the image.

Once again part of the Avocado Arts Design Team has some fun samples to share with you. Here’s the links…


Wishing you a year full of peace, joy and creativity!
