It's Here! It's Here!!

The new year is here, safe and sound! Bear is very tired and needs a long winter's nap.....

Hope your year arrived in your favorite "style" and you are enjoying the day. For now, I think I'll join Bear for a nap!

P.S. The clock in the background is a nod to Sue's (LoveItaly) wonderful clock illustration. I think I need more practice!

  1. Love this pic of your bear after the last post of him! I'm looking forward to a pared down year or rather perhaps, one not so fragmented. I so enjoy the watercolors that I am not worrying about trying to grab all the other stuff to be done on the internet. I'll just focus on them for a while which makes the start of this year simpler. It feels good.

  2. Happy day to you and yours, Andrea!

    Timaree, that sounds like an awesome plan! I think we have to step back from time to time and ask what it is that we most enjoy or else we run the risk of running all over, trying to do everything and not enjoying any of it. Sounds like a marvelous plan to me. HNY!

  7. Yep, it's over, and this bear is tired too. I had two glorious 12-hour naps the last couple of nights and I'm not apologizing! I am energized now to get rolling in the new year. Hope yours is extrafabulous.
