A New Year, A Clean Sheet of Paper and a New Blog

I love the New Year.  It's like having a fresh, clean sheet of paper with all kinds of writing and drawing and coloring utensils at the ready.  Oh the possibilities!  I also love the new year  because it is an opportunity to let my clean-freakishness run wild with organizing and purging and the casting off of the old and establishing the new.  Especially when the last year was not such a great year, it is an opportunity to let it go and face forward to the opportunities of the next year with all the hopes and creative possibilities before me.  I just want to jump in and give it all I've got. I've decided that I wanted to start fresh in many ways and this blog is one of them.  This year... I hope to be faithful at updating at least once a month... inspiration or no inspiration.  Some things are important enough to become a discipline, so that is what I intend to do with this blog.  I admit, I more enjoy creating and not necessarily saying anything... so at the very least in those times I will try to be disciplined to upload pictures or snippets of things I find interesting and share-worthy.  Sometimes I can't stop talking, so there may be those kinds of posts too.  :)  One thing you can probably count on:  lots of pictures of adorable, furry creatures.  Especially pictures like this:  


Lucy (and I) wish you a very Happy and Blessed New Year!
