Christmas Thanks

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth, I swear!  The holidays stress me out even though I tell myself every year to relax and not take everything so seriously.  I just can't do it.  I'm a perfectionist and the holidays bring out the worst in me.  However, Christmas is packed away in my house and I don't have to think of gifts, Christmas cards, calendars, etc for another year.  I can breathe easy again.  I wish I let myself take more joy from this season because I know that the true gift of the season is the birth of our savior.  Maybe next year, I can focus a little more on that and a little less on all the things I need to get done.  New Year's resolution??  ;)

I figured I would break my blog silence with a little Christmas thank you.  Thanks to all of you for reading my blog and encouraging me to keep creating.  Thanks to Jackie for letting me see what it's like to be on a design team.  SO FUN!  Thanks to all the amazing, talented, and spirited card makers out there that inspire me everyday when I do my daily blog rounds.  What a great hobby this is and it is SO nice to have a creative outlet for my stress.
