Happy New Year!!!

Hello and a Very Happy New Year to You All!!! 

It is that time a year again, the New Year is just hours away (in my time zone), time to make those crafting goals! What will we get finished? What will we start? What do we want to make good progress on? For me, I have several.

My Finishes for 2014

Hello again! 

This has been a good year. My family and I are thankful for the good things that have happened and for the bad things that did not. We look forward to another good year in 2015. 

I had a more productive year in my crafting in 2014. I have cross stitch finishes, and a ribbon for one. I have started a new crafting venture with bottle caps that is really fun. You can find Crafting with Bottle Caps on Facebook. 

Here are my 2014 Cross Stitch Finishes ...

These were not very large designs, but they were not small ones either. So I feel a sense of accomplishment to have finished them all in one year. I hope for more finishes in 2015. 

Also, I have made several bottle cap needle minders, magnets and necklaces! 

Until Next Time,
