Inspiration for the New Year

It has been several weeks since I’ve been able to participate in some of my favorite blog hops – between the flu making the rounds in our family and preparations for Christmas, my blogging has been neglected for quite some time. Now that I’m feeling better and the rest of my little family seems to be healthy again, we’re all looking forward to getting back to a “normal” routine . . . . whatever that might look like, I’m not quite sure!

One thing I definitely want to bring back into my weekly schedule is my online connections with all of my blogging friends, both here on my personal blog as well as in the Ruby for Women community. If you haven’t visited us there yet, please stop by when you have a minute so you can connect with lots of other bloggers and writers. Hope to see you there!

In the meantime, here is my latest creative project: a Snowflake Wreath that I made from plain old copy paper, ribbon, spray glitter, and a few odds and ends of gems and buttons for a bit of bling! I actually made this to give as a gift to a friend who loves to decorate her home for Christmas, and of course once all the holiday decorations are put away for another year, the house looks a bit lonely and bare, so I thought that a wreath that celebrates the joys of winter might be a good way to brighten up the sometimes gloomy days of January.

I am also writing up the tutorial for the Ruby for Women magazine so if you want to make a Snowflake Wreath yourself, please check it out in the January issue . . . . which will be delayed for a few days but should be posted by the end of this week. I will also post the tutorial here on the blog along with the other craft tutorials. I would love to see your winter craft projects, or hear about what’s cooking in your kitchen on these snowy days!

Looking forward to connecting with many of you again soon out here in the blogosphere as we get back into our routine of weekly blog hops! See you soon, Nina
