We sailed from Baltimore to St. Kitts, Tortola, San Juan
and Labadee (Haiti)

So I got no cards mailed. None! For a cardmaker!! Can you believe it? To my friends and family who might expect one, I hope to send a personal non-holiday greeting as soon as I can. I'm sorry!

stepson's home in suburban Philadelphia .. .what an omen!
So now we're on the cusp of the New Year, when I really do hope to be more diligent about posting more regularly. I have some tutorials in mind, some ideas ... and would love to hear from you about what you visit here to see. Let me know, will you?
Our New Year's Eve is planned to be quiet. I'm hoping to get another bottle of Yellow Tail's "Pink Bubbles" to celebrate the New Year. Oh my word, daughter Emily bought a bottle to serve with Thanksgiving dinner, and it's my new favorite.
And what better to serve it in than a champagne flute like this, custom made using The Buckle Boutique's Rhinestone Resin Sheets in ice blue.
To make this glass (one of a set of four), I designed the 2014 using Silhouette's Designer Edition software, and cutting the resin sheets on my Cameo. The sheets are self-adhesive, just peel and stick. For the little blue resin dots, I just punched standard paper punch holes from the Dazzling Diamonds, and viola!
No matter how you ring it in, I hope your New Year is filled with peace, love and joy; good health and prosperity, and lots of crafting adventures!!
