Happy New Year!

Well, we are (mostly) in our new home although we had to rent a  storage unit and obviously need to downsize a little more than we did!  I lost my craft room and now occupy a corner and one wall of our bonus room.  DH complained that he had been squeezed out of his half of the room, but as I told him, "You snooze, you lose."   I worked hard every evening unpacking boxes, arranging my supplies and filling all the available space! LOL.

I hope everyone had a lovely Christmas.  All the family visited at one time or another and we thoroughly enjoyed showing off our house.  The First Night of Hanukkah fell on Christmas Eve, so we waited until yesterday, New Year's Eve AND the Last Night of Hanukkah to visit Master J and his parents for a delicious dinner of latkes, apple and pear chutney, brisket and vegetables.  Yum!




 I adapted a swing card from the Artfully Sent cart this year and was quite pleased with how it came out.  I could not find my card holder so please forgive the binder clip!


The sentiment comes from the Phrases cart.  You can't tell, but I used my Wink of Stella pen to add a sparkle to both sides of the Star of David in the swing window.  I am linking my card to the BBTB2 Nativity and Menorah challenge here.
Thank you for visiting with me today.  Time to get back to packing up the ornaments from the tree.  (Not my favorite thing to do!)   : )  Christine
