Life has been a struggle but I am on top at the moment and hope that this new year ahead will be more productive than ever before and I will either quit the blog or be a better blogger and be more consistent with posts and content. 

The house is not done.  Christmas projects were being made instead of bought and time was at a premium as you all know!!  It's pretty much the same for everyone who celebrates the holidays.  But for some reason, others seem to make their blog a priority.  My priority was in maintaining my health and make the holidays special for those around me whom I love and who love me.

I will be starting off this new year with notice that as usual I will not be posting  right away.  There is an upcoming major surgery to reverse a colonoscopy, remove an ovary and fix a hurnia on the 9th of January.  After 6 to 8 weeks of recovery my hope is to resume my life in a much healthier state of being and be done with the medical issues that have plagued me this past year. 

With that, I hope to open an Etsy shop, sell some antiques on EBay, finish up my renovation in my apartment and keep up with this Blog.  Since they seem to be resolutions and we all know about "them", I have chosen a word (inspired by my friend Kerri Stabile) for the year to motivate my actions.  The word is "Intention"  and I intend to keep true to it. 

If I have lost you as a follower I totally understand.  I have not stopped following my blogger friends but do not always post.  I love what you all are doing, and I'm falling short, but given my situation I have also forgiven myself.  And so life is and I look forward to the new year with new health and creativity.  I wish you all the same.


  1. Happy New Year, Peggy! Have a great year!

    Pls let me know ow you are after the surgery...when you can. I miss you!



  2. Peggy, don't be so hard on yourself....your blog is for you and you should not feel pressured into posting....don't give up your when you feel like sharing something or when you feel like venting. You health is upmost important and that is priority; when your home recouping you will have time to create in small ways by knitting, or simple art work and maybe post a thing or two. Just don't stress and I, for one, check in on your blog from time to time and am happy when I see you have posted. I also don't always comment on the blogs I visit - maybe we should so the blogger knows someone is reading their posts. Anyway, good wishes for a speedy recovery and remember you have friend who will be praying for good health for you....happy new year!

  3. PS - I forgot to mention that you Christmas creations were beautiful and really appreciated!

  4. My wish for you is a healthy and happy new year Peggy! I will keep positive thoughts for a speedy recovery from your surgery.

    Always thinking of you! Marilyn xxoo
