Happy new year!  Check out what’s new!

EMILY’S BITES OF FUN: 

New Year’s Resolutions:  We all know them and we all have tried them.  Something to consider is when you make your list even if it is just one thing, make sure you also write down your obstacles and challenges that you may face when trying to obtain those intentions.  Then, have a list of how you will deal with the obstacles (your plan B’s).  That will help you know it won’t always be perfect but you will at least be aware that there will be obstacles and have a plan how to deal with them.  Only 8% of people actually keep their New Year’s Resolutions.  This might help in keeping them.

A NOTE FROM EMILY:

It was a wonderful holiday season!  My family and I got away to California in the sunshine and “dried” out a bit.  Don’t get me wrong, it was lovely here in Washington when it snowed on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day but getting to a warmer climate was also wonderful.  Watching the holidays through my children’s eyes was quite an experience.  They are just so amazed at the little things that it makes me also step back and enjoy those little bits of wonder too.  Hope you had a wonderful season of celebration no matter how you celebrated.

Is one of your resolutions to learn more crafts this year?  Sign up for a class below and let’s get that good intention taken care of.
