Mama's Minerals Beading Contest Results

The results are in...drum roll please...


What?  I didn't win?  How can this be?  Oh well, I had a great time with this contest.  Thanks everyone who took the time to vote for me.  I really appreciate it.  Alas, all was not a total loss...My sweet hubby won a raffle prize..the free form quartz flame (which I have already stolen for my office!  hehe!)

Saying "Yes"

I was thinking the other day about our choices in life and how our decisions affect our quality of life.  It dawned on me that rarely was I disappointed when I said "yes" to a new choice presented to me.  And yet, I still find myself mumbling a disheartening "no".  With the New Year upon us (well the Celtic New Year for us Witches) I have decided to change my tune. So, this year will be filled with more "yes!".  "Yes" to trying that new restaurant, "yes" to spending time with friends and family, "yes" to a weekend getaway with my wonderful husband, "yes" to tackling that new class, "yes" to taking time for me.  I hope that the coming year will be full of wonder, surprise, and delight just by saying "yes" more.  I will let you know how it turns out.  Wish me luck, I am sure my husband is going to ask me to try sushi now!!
