Happy New Year!

 I have not been on my blog for quite some time but hoping to get back to it!

I hope that you all had a nice Christmas and I wish you all a Happy New Year with Blessings of good health for 2023!

I am hoping this will be the year that I get alot of decluttering done.  I need to go through the cabinets and get rid of some stuff as well as the closet. Then the garage and shed needs it come spring.

We are redoing a bathroom and laundry room now.  Back in early fall my washer wasn't spinning out correctly and I got so tired of always having to spin and spin it again that one time I put towels in dryer to wet and burnt the belt up.  So the plan was a new set, but upon moving the washer we saw where the floor had a small hole and was weak back to the bathroom so wall, tub and all came out.  Took awhile to find what we wanted and what would fit and then other pieces weren't in stock.  I do think we have 90 to 95% of it so hoping to get it going.  In the meantime I have ripped carpet out of 2 bedrooms and plan to repaint and get flooring. Have another bedroom to replace flooring but haven't ripped it out yet. That room doesn't get repainted. It is the room granddaughter uses when over and she likes it.  Will all take time since I work.

We had a really cold spell Christmas weekend but today near 60.

Dollar Tree Foam Dice

 I did purchase the dice last year but never made any.  You have to paint the dice and then make your snowman.  Have seen some done up as smore ornaments.  Google the Dollar Tree Foam dice ornaments.

Recycle Can

 Another picture that I have been saving.  Using recycled cards or maybe even a picture from calendar or book and decorate it up with some glitter etc...  If not wanting to use glitter try the glitter ribbon that you can buy.  Dollar Tree normally has some--if you can find it there.  Could put mini tree, snowman, truck etc. depending on picture if you wanted to.

For some reason, I cannot post on peoples blogs.  I am looking at them but my posting just stopped.  I have to post differently too on my blog!!!!

Seeing several cute ideals on your blogs!

Giving Gifts

 When you go grocery shopping, start now buying one or two extra cans of food, or box mix etc. and then by the time places collect food for food baskets for the holidays you will have quite a collection to give.

Also, if you get a gift card to like Wal-Mart or grocery store etc. and put like $5.00 on it and when you have alittle extra maybe add $5.00 here and there and then around Thanksgiving or before Christmas send somebody in need an unsigned card with the enclosed gift card with maybe a typed message inserted.

Or do a gift basket with food and gifts and leave on the porch---knock or ring bell and run.  I wouldn't be able to get away with that one (wouldn't move fast enough)!
