What a year....what a really wonderful year!

And do you know WHY it was wonderful??? Because. of. YOU!!! I have to tell you that because of you, your inspiring words, your wonderful blogs and if you don't have a blog, your sweet comments, it has been an amazing year!! You encouraged my creativity. Isn't that all that the human spirit needs?? Just a kind word and precious encouragement? Your comments have MADE me want to create.....and as a direct result, last Christmas Jenny Doh emailed me and requested a few pieces of artwork and it has been wonderful from that point on. Meeting more new friends and creating more and more all throughout the year. Creating artwork is a wonderful thing but the friendships have been the best blessing ever.


If you have been one of those precious souls that have cheered me on, that have bought my tutorials or artwork, or even just glimpsed at my blog.....thank you for such an amazing year!!!


And my wish for YOU??? My challenge for YOU? To take the time to create or do what you love....even if it's just a small part of your day, try to carve out that time to do what you crave. Believe me, your spirit will be enriched and it will overflow to all those around you! When you do what makes you happy, you are indeed a happier person to be around.


May we inspire one another to create more, enjoy our loved ones more and to see all the beauty that surrounds us

Wishing each and every one of you the most wonderful, happy and healthy New Year ever!!!


love and hugs to you all,
Dawn

Dawn,
I've missed talking to you and seeing your fun things while we've been gone. Can't wait to see the quilt done.
Have a wonderful 2009, and thanks for inspiring and encouraging others to create.
It is part of how God made us, and is so important.
Blessings,

What a lovely sentiment to begin a New Year with. I'm enjoying being inspired by others work and comments too - long may it continue.

Dawn,
Your words ring very true. I stumbled across your blog one day, and was compelled to visit again, and again...I soon felt inspired to give it a try myself. I'm hooked! Sometimes we inspire others without even being aware. I know 2009 will be a banner year for you...with your impending blessed event.
Best wishes for a happy and healthy "New Year."

Happy New Year to you and your house full!! :) This year I have determined will be one where I can get in that room of mine and focus. I love your "Don't be an expense!" way of thinking and that is what I am going to do my best to be. Now, that said, we are going to have to be better at getting together in 2009! Really.
Have a great day.
