Happy New Year's, everyone!!! How is everything going three days into the New Year? This past long weekend was very relaxing for me.

I stumbled into a new, amazing dollar store called "Dollar Respect." I used to laugh @ the name because we have SO many dollar stores that this one sounded like an after thought. However, once I went inside, I truly came to respect the dollar (LOL!)

I found the CUTEST things for crafting (like I need one other thing). I couldn't wait to get home to play. I ended up spending hours making the following different cards. I always loved art class in school and hated when the hour was over. Now that I'm "an adult" (LOL!), I can have art class when I want, for as long as I want.

So, after watching about 2 hours of Hero Arts YouTube videos on "how to" and thinking to myself, "I can do that!", I dove in head first. When I spread everything out before me, the ideas flowed like water. I like how no two cards are alike.

I am glad my creativity came back with a vengence, with lots of new ideas.

And finally, I found the super adorable new coffee can for my coffee!!! They had different ones, but I liked this one the best. I'm sure I'll go back & get the others. How cute is it? I take my coffee very seriously.

And lastly, I got a gift basket for Christmas with chocolate, Merlot wine, the Pumpkin Spice Fettuccini & Sun-Dried Tomato sauce. I've had this type of sauce before, but the Pumpkin Spice will be new to my taste buds. Looking forward to it.

May you all discover wonderful, new, great things in this New Year. No matter how big or how small, monetary or free. Let yourself discover the newness! :-)
