Happy New year!!!

Ok get ready for the longest post ever!!!! First off i picked my word for the 2009 (heres the link to AE and heres mine from last year and heres what i made for it) This past year i stared at my word quite often and it really helped. For the most part i have way more harmony in my life. I have made a conscious effort to be nice, let things go, make peace and find balance. This year I chose:
Main Entry:
1fin·ish           Listen to the pronunciation of 1finish
1: to come to an end
2: to come to the end of a course, task, or undertaking
3: to end relations

It was the first thing that popped into my head this morning. I need to work on my follow through in life, really really bad. I need to end some relations that are proving to be too much for me to handle as well. #2 is what im going to focus on. To come to the end of a task. like FINISH the laundry. Actually send in my submission to mags, blog more(it makes me happy and i miss it:) Just finish what i say im going to do instead of getting side tracked in one way or another. Today i plan to finish my word wall hanging. Ill post it tomorrow! I also want to finish putting pictures in my picture frames too.
Ok new topic! The holidays were truly wonderful this year. My mom cooke
d thanks giving at her house since my stove is not working. It was yummy and very nice to spend time with her for the first time in a few years. Us being together really brought "harmony" in my life ;) Heres the pecan pie she made.See the B!!!! So sweet. Her and i have really turned a new leaf the past 2 months and it makes me beyond happy. So food was yummy company was great! Now on to Christmas. The week before Christmas Jeff's Sister and her kids came up or over or something like that from east tx. They're awesome! I got some awesome picture frames(the ones that need pictures in them lol) and jeff got some tools. Side note: On the 23rd I had a moment and dyed my hair super dark.......I love it........Here it is no more blond with trashy roots!!!!I have a dress on although i look kinda nakie ;) Back to the holiday rundown......Our family has had dinner on Christmas eve most of my life, so this year my mom cooked pot roast and bread dumplings(they're German and oh so yummy). My little sister came over and the four of us had a wonderful dinner, and then opened presents(my fav part by far!!!) The best thing i recieved was a wireless remote for my camera!!!!
Heres my first Pse6 Photo collage( i got the template with an ample explanation here)I actually scrapbooked this last night and i love how it turned out. Now that i know how to make these I might actually do more of them!!!Ok that concludes my 2008 year end post! Hope you enjoyed it! Look for big things in 2009. Video blogging and tutorials(if i can figure it out lol) Way more pages, daily pictures(Finish finish finish) and actual posts from yours truly more then once a month!!!!!

If you get a chance check out Robot Nine, today I posted Mark Khaiman and his cool art made of packing tape on plexiglass. Unbelievable, lots of positive comments already.
