A new year means new beginnings. Change things you are unhappy with, cherish the things you love. A new year brings new stitching possibilities, also!!

Nancy M said...

Happy Birthday! And thanks for the Christmas card. I don't do New Year resolutions, or even make lists of things to accomplish.So bringing in a New Year isn't much different than any other day. Did your mom win the contest for first baby born in the new year???

Jules said...

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

And Happy New Year! What it means to start a New Year to me: LEAVING the crap of 2011 behind! I am spending the majority of the weekend stitching.

Happy Birthday! The start of the new year means for me to get clean out the old and start fresh. I also reflect on things of the past year and see if there is anything I can work on to make better. Thanks for the chance.

New years means:
1. I have survived "almost" another year of my life.
2. My birthday is only 10 days away.
3. I reflect on my life.
4. I reflect on everything my parents did for me to make me who I am today.
5. I remember all those, from my family, who have gone before me and wonder when I will get to be with them again.
6. I remember the 1st love of my life who has left this Earth and wonder if I will see him, again, when I leave the Earth.

Happy almost birthday! (and thanks for sharing with us.) Since I have a miserable cold/sinus infection, hopefully the new year means feeling healthy again. Seriously, though, I look forward to marking 2012's occasions - birthdays, anniversaries, just blessed days.

Anne Sans Tete said...

Happy Birthday!

Since I always have a few weeks around Christmas & New Year's off, it's a time for me to relax & re-energize so that I can face the next 12 months with vigor and contentment.

Peggy said...

I don't usually write down New Year reslutions, but the New Year always brings surprises, adventure, trying out new techniques, being thankful for my family, and trying to stitch and sew as much as I have time for.
Happy Birthday and thanks for a chance to win a surprise.

Happy Birthday Cindy!! I hope you have a wonderful day!! The new year for me means I will be hopefully getting to see my nephew graduate from high school. This nephew has been sickly since shortly after birth and at one point we were told that he may not live past the age of 10. He is to graduate at the end of May. He is my buddy even though we live at opposite sides of the country. 2012 also means that I will be turning 50 years old. And yet I feel that I really had not started really living until I met my honey back in 2009. He has helped me to see life in other perspectives and there really is so much beauty in the world.

Lisa Russell said...

We have a new year with a new family member, my oldest son is getting married in May, so we are all looking forward to that. Happy New Year, Cindy!

valerie said...

Happy New Year and Happy Birthday! I see the new year as an opportunity to reflect on the past year and take stock in what you have and set goals for the coming year!

Jennifer said...

Happy Birthday!

For me, this new year is a chance for miracles. We are praying that this will be the year that we will be blessed with a new little one and that the sadness of 2010 & 2011 will be a thing of the past.

Happy Birthday! I always like to restart some of my habits that have slipped a little during the busy-ness of the holidays. I try to rededicate myself to the Lord and ask Him to show me ways that I can bless others in the New Year.

Laura said...

Happy Birthday! To me it means a fresh start for the year and to begin anew with plans, hopes, and dreams.

A very belated Happy Birthday to you.
The new year is a very visible time/deadline to make a decision to change and then implement that change. I know that I can and should make changes throughout the year, but I find it easier to stick to them when it's a major date.

arlette said...

Happy belated Birthday to you, hope you had an awesome day. Always it's hard for me to start another year, this one's specially hard because my grandma isn't with us anymore, she used to love this days alot and her bday was in the early days of the year, we'll have a service for her bday..., in other note, I always make a plan during this month about the projects I'd love to work during the year :)!

Theresa said...

Happy Birthday and Happy New Year!!!! A new year to me is to start from fresh!!
Thank you for hosting this giveaway!!!

Rowyn said...

Happy belated birthday Cindy. Hope you had a wonderful day. And also, happy new year to you.

The new year for me is a chance to try some new things (I'm doing a fun run/walk next month... a first for me) and make more time for things I enjoy (i.e. more stitching time would be good).

Thanks for entering me in your giveaway.

Lynn said...

Happy birthday and thank you for the opportunity in your give-a-way.

I am a new follower of yours and love the projects you have done.

The New Year for me means another round of the seasons, celebrations and events that make up our lives!

All the best for your New Year!

Tatkis said...

Happy birthday and merry and joyful New year to you!

Lisa said...

Happy Bday and Happy New Year, Cindy! I hope 2012 brings much love and laughter, health and happiness to you and your family!

Starting a New Year, to me, is like starting a new chapter in my book of life. I look back at my accomplishments and things I would like to change from the year before in order to put closer on the past; and then start the new one with a clean slate working to live up to my full potential and making the best out of everyday.

I would love to be entered into your give-away! Thank you!

Enjoy the day!
Lisa

Shelley said...

Happy Birthday to you!
Happy New Year too :)

I'd be honored to be entered into the drawing.

Katrien said...

Happy belated birthday Cindy. The new Year means new hope, a new start sometimes.

Jana said...

I am so prayerful that this year brings a lot more happiness for me & my family. We lost my Dad in March of 2011 & in October of 2011 my mom was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer. She is doing well now, but it's been a rough year. The Lord above, my family,& my stitching have gotten me through it.

Kathy said...

Hi,
I always like to see what you are working on. I finally took time this holiday to work on a project which I'd be only too glad to be done with. I have not let myself start a new one until this is conmplete, not to menntion that it was a b-day gift for someone a few years ago!

Happy stitching in the new year! You seem to have a great start!

Denise said...

Wishing you a special birthday & Happy 2012!
My plan for the new year is to stitch
from my huge stash and try not to buy anything other than thread. Now, I said it, do I believe it??!
Many blessings...
