New month...new goals?

February is here! Now I can happily tell you that I keep to my willpower and did not start anything new over the last few weeks. In fact, I am going to keep it going and finish a project before I start a new project. That will be a guilt free feeling! Just perfect. I am working away on my UFO so stay tuned to see it...

In the meantime, I had a number of requests to show my Valentine's tree so I that what better way to announce the winner of heart penny rug candle mat.

The winner is Christine. Please email me with your address so I can get this in the mail to you in the coming days. I would love to make sure you have it in time for Valentine's Day. Congratulations!


My tree is made up of a combination of bought and handmade hearts. Most of them were gifts given to me. I think of the friend who gave me each one as I hang them once again each year. That is what Valentine's Day is all about...remembering how special family and friends are in your life!

I love your tree. I decided to not make resolutions this year and I've so far spent most of my time dealing with health issues, doctor apts. My goal is to just get through the rest of them, but I am working on cross stitch projects that have been hanging around for years and learning to cook without dairy. My birthday is this month so that is the highlight for me.
