Happy New Year! Come Inspire or Be Inspired.

Glad Tidings, friends! Truly, since we last gathered, we all shared the Good News of Christmas! How wonderful is that?! It seems as if it has been forever since I last sat down at my computer to address you all and to look over all your beautiful projects, writings, beliefs, and shares with me, but it's really only been a couple of weeks. I'm still trying to wrap my head around that! It has been a very busy Winter, Fall, Christmas... well, time, in general, I guess. Some wonderful happenings and some very difficult times, but here we still are the beginning of a new decade! 

Does that blow your mind as much as it does mine?! I know it's really just a day later than yesterday, but....2020!! Whoa! It sounds otherworldly to me.  I'm sorry I haven't been able to share as much as I usually do in the past few parties, but family and health must take precedence and I feel, and hope, that you all truly do understand. 


Another concerning factor...The numbers for our beautiful little party have dropped drastically. Something to do with the great big World Wide Web and Algorithms, but it is very disheartening when we all put so much effort into our work and Google says only one-sixth as many people are seeing you as they were 4-5 weeks ago. Bizarre! I guess I just will never understand and that's okay too because you are here and I enjoy your company immensely! 

Please do share, pin, follow, subscribe, all the things we all need to keep us current and solvent in this crazy market. 
Okay, yuck! Now that that's done with let's see what you were up to when last we met!  


A personal little share, here... 
A great way to bring in the New Year is with this powerful song by a group called Casting Crowns.  If you are a K-Love listener, this probably won't be new to you, but even if you have heard it before, give it another listen, now, today, when you have time...it will not disappoint, I promise. It would be pretty difficult to have a bad day after the words of this song get in your head. Enjoy it! 


Decorating the Sideboard for Christmas

Okay, friends, your turn to inspire, again, like you always do.
Many Blessings to you all and may your 2020 be blessed beyond measure.
~Theresa.

  3. So many new things/change have kicked in on computers and the web this year. I think we have to be patient and let it all work out. I know I had computer issues in October--and oh, my, updating---little did I know what I would lose. Even today I have had to do my commenting on Chrome rather than working through my Mac Safarri..since apparently none of my comments for two months have been registering...very hard to navigate these changes, especially for older readers(ME) and older systems. So, Happy New Year and as always, I think the best will float to the top and others will fall to the wayside! Hugs! Sandi

  12. Theresa, I so hear you about those confusing and oftentimes frustrating algorithms. I'm walking into 2020 with my finger's crossed and my head held high in defiance, determined that 2020 be a good year. Thank you for getting it off to a good start with my Christmas tray feature! Wishing you a wonderful New Year xo
