As this year end and the new one starts I'm making plans for what I'll be doing. I love Pinterest can waste many hours there. But let me ask you how many of you do any of things that you've pined. This next year I'm going to work my way through Pinterest I have made a few things and will blog about them. I have made these Lasagna Cupcakes from leftover spaghetti sauce it's a great way to use leftovers. So this next year will be pin fun. Stay tune for an announcement of a give away in the next few days I'm hoping it will be fun a one.

Well this has been a year in the making I joined the joy dare over at A Holy Experience were you count your joys, gifts, things your thankful for three things a day at the end of the year you'll have 1000+ thing. I wanted to do something different to record all my gifts. So I made a smash,junk journal for them. It came out so good I plan on doing another one for 2013. I know what your thinking now what do you do with it since there were a couple of pages left I'm writing a letter to my grand daughter K when she turns 16 I'll give her the book so she can see all the little things in life to be thankful for. Next years will go to Ann. I think this is a wonderful idea for them to see how thankful I am for them for they are in many of the pages. This journey has taught me many things how to be thankful in the mist of tragedy and hard times. I'm looking forward to what the next years blessing will be. If you want to try it for your self pop over to A Holy Experience and down load all the months and start counting I'd love to hear how it goes for you.

At the beginning of the year I joined the Christmas Angel over at Mrs. Martin's I was lucky to get two Angels, One of my Angels is from that wonderful country Australia Annette she is very gifted I'm saving most of my gifts to open later. The little bag I had to hide, K has been getting in to bags she loves to fill them with her things and some how they become hers. She made me a hook case which I really needed it's going in my go bag. Thank You so much Annette I have had a great time getting to know you it's so much fun to say "Oh my friend in Australia made that for me" it throws people off that I could have a friend so far away.
I really needed something for my door this year I think Annette's stocking looks great I had all those flowers and couldn't think how to use them. I have a rock in side so it would blow away but when the storm hit it keep knocking at the door so I brought it in until the storm passed.
Thank you Annette.
