Wow. They say time flies when you are having fun so I must have had a blast this past year. I did have a blast. It was a great year full of new people, new experiences, and lots of new stuff going on. Thank you for sharing 2014 with me.

Something new I did in 2014

I make resolutions every year. Some resolutions, I make every year, like “I resolve to wake up earlier”. That one is pretty hit or miss. But I will resolve again this year to wake up earlier. I will never give up on that dream. Some of my resolutions were resolved. Did I use that right? IDK. I resolved to make a beaded snake and enter it into the Fair, and I totally did that. Bonus: I won 2nd place in my division. Boom. I also resolved to join a Fantasy Football League and I did. I came in 4th out of 6, but I was fine with that. Next year, I will do even better. I resolved to have a tweet read on live TV, preferably on “Dancing With The Stars”. That did not happen, mainly because DWTS is live on the East Coast and I would have to watch it on my computer at 6pm Pacific Time, and so, obviously. However, my name was read multiple times live on CreativeLive, by hosts and by a couple of instructors, so that trumps a tweet on DWTS in my book.

Jane and I are looking cute and ready to rock


Stuff that was not on my list of resolutions included attending a CL class, being briefly interviewed live on a CL class, and taking a trip to San Francisco all by myself. But I did all of those things. I did not resolve to join a community of creative cohorts who have changed my life in so many ways, all for the better. That totally happened though.

take a chance

totally nailed this

Wednesday is New Year’s Eve and Greg and I will celebrate in Death Valley. We will probably raise a glass of tawny port and toast to the New Year at midnight Eastern Time, because we are old and like to go to bed early. On New Years Day, we will eat our traditional dinner of black-eyed peas and greens for good luck. And we will make our resolutions for the new year, so stay tuned for that. Be safe everyone. xo


After a long day in class

Life is good…
