Happy New Year

Photobucket

Wow ... what a year my family has had. My brother moved back into the area, he got engaged then married, now he's expecting twins. My dad's business is going so well that he's gonna have to hire more workers just to be able to keep up with the demand for his product. My baby brother moved to the area, cause a bunch of trouble between dad & I then left the area. (he's moving back sometime this month with a new g/f). My MIL threatened to move in with us 2 separate times ... thankfully she's is back living with her sister. I think it's best she stays there for everyones sake. In March I started this graphics journal which became so popular that some of my friends started telling me that I was on the top ten most read journals. Pretty cool considering I didn't want to share my work for fear no one would like what I created. I broke down & invited my mother here for Christmas which went surprisingly well & met my neice after being away from her for 6 years. I gained weight ... lost weight ... then gained it all back. I broke my foot, broke my camera ... lost my mind a couple of times. I made many J-land friends (some of you feel like family) that I know I will keep forever.

In retrospect ... even though I had a few bad days the good ones far out weighed the bad. Thank you for spending the year with me. I look forward to sharing another year with you. Many hugs. Emmi

Happy New Year, Emmi - Just dropping in for a quickie, before I finally go to bed. Waiting for the oldest daughter to arrive home safe and sound from her night out, partying. Thank you for sharing your graphics. I think they are really amazing, and I truly appreciate all the effort that you put in to making them. Cheers!
Always, Rose~*

Glad there were more good days than that for you in 2007. I hope 2008 has ALL good days. A large wish but with prayer thrown in for help. Maybe so. Thank you for all the tags ans snags you have offered. I for one appreciate them so much as I haven't a clue how you do it all. I just thank you.
Happy New Year my new JLand friend,
Barb
