Happy New Year Everyone!
Day One of 2012 is coming to an end....

Thank goodness, because I believe I had a few too many last night when we went to a friend's place...including a delicious orange-cranberry martini!  Yum!
The food was divine as well as the company!  Good fun
for Dan & I who usually stay in and go to bed early on New Years Eve!

Not sure if anyone noticed, but I haven't blogged since Dec 22nd!
I've had a huge, long vacation haven't I?!
It's been very busy here with my youngest daughter home from Ottawa over  the holiday season.  So wonderful having her here and her boyfriend too!

This week she's going to help me do a few things for the blog, but
apparently we're going shopping tomorrow.  Shock.
I actually do have to return some jammies for a different size, so that works out fine.
And...I hear there are some great boot sales going on....uh-oh!

I'm really just writing to say thanks to all of you who read my blog, regularly or
sporadically.  I've learned so much since August and come so far in my blog technical knowledge since trying to figure out how to lay out the blog, what an html is, how to link to a party, and everything else that goes along with being a Blogger.

THANK YOU for guiding me, visiting my blog, your sweet comments
and ALL the wondrous inspiration!


I plan on doing a total bedroom reveal this year.  I'm going for a
vintage feel to our bedroom, in creams & whites in contrast to our
pewter grey/blue walls.  I've got furniture to paint and distress, accessories to sew,
window treatments to work on and even have some furniture to be made (by Dan, according to my plans in my head....oh yah....I can think up some pretty marvelous things for my hubby to make for me!  lol!)

Also, I'll be updating my book section in the next few days.  My friend, Nancy, commented on the fact that she was missing the book reviews, so I shall assert myself and get right on it.  I've read some fantastic books recently....with all the time I haven't been blogging...hahahaha!
Today I started "A Game of Thrones" by George R.R. Martin,  and I'm entranced by it....knights and lords, queens and kings with an enthralling storyline and best of all....four books in the series!

And, I've thought about something else quite alot these past 10 days.....
I'm going back to my once weekly herbal posting.  I miss that!
Does anyone else miss that?  I love brushing up on my herbal knowledge and
sharing it with all of you.  I want to put the GARDEN back in
HerBallistic Garden!

I'll still be creating new things and crafting, because I really feel that inspiration
the past few months, finally, to do...to make...something original!
Look at me Getting My Act Together!

Thanks again everyone and please
Have a Wonderful 2012!
