happy new year…a little gift and a wish!

I hope you rang in 2012 with a smile!

I for one am looking forward to the New Year and getting to know everyone a bit better…sharing in your creative spirits and talents…experiencing your lives through your fascinating story telling…being there for your ups and downs…lending a helping hand and a compassionate ear and heart…experimenting with new and fabulous foods…fun decorating tips…money saving ideas…fabulous thrifting finds (by Joe : ) parades of Pinterest creativity…digital creations…Charitable magic and so very much more! 2012 holds tons of surprises and wonderment…I am sure of it and the best part…we get to share the experience together!
I have a little wish for you below…I wish you even more…but I think you will understand what I mean!

I wanted to start your New Year off with a little creative gift…here are some tape strips that you use on your blogs…scrapping…banners or whatever your artistic mind desires…hope you enjoy them…

My Wish for us all
that no child goes to bed hungry…
that animals large and small have full bellies and loving hearts caring for them and free from any abuse…
that the wild creatures of the world be able to live free…free from poachers and harm…free to love their families and enrich the world…
that every child have the freedom to be their own person…explore their creativity…
that everyone experience the love of a family…no matter how many or who…experience the love…
that the elderly live full lives and receive the respect…appreciation and love they deserve…
that everyone gets a chance at a wonderful education…no matter what!…
to always be there to lend a helping hand…and for one to be there for you…
to have an earth that is kept the way God intended it to be…a place where we respect our gifts…
 a place where there is no long disease…
to live in a world where WAR is a thing of the past…
a world where Kindness happens all the time…great and small…
 a world filled with the wonderment of the arts…
where everyone has a charitable heart…
a world where everyone can imagine…create…share ideas…be happy…loved and have their dreams come true…

I wish you all so much more but this is a good start and you know what…it is all possible by following the golden rule…do unto others as you would have them do unto you!
to all…see you tomorrow!
