Sending Hedgehugs

Happy 2017! I hope that you all had a wonderful holiday. I'm back to work today. Unfortunately, my husband had a stroke on Christmas Eve so we ended up postponing Christmas for a bit. He's doing much better now and we're hoping that he'll be discharged from the hospital soon.


Jan is our hostess at Little Red Wagon this week and she wants us to celebrate the NEW! She's pretty easygoing about your interpretation of the word NEW. It could be a project to celebrate something NEW (i.e., new home, new pet), you could try something NEW (i.e., a technique) or you could use something NEW (i.e., Christmas crafting supplies that you're trying for the first time). I received a few new goodies (included in the photo) so put them to use for this project, combining them with some items that I already had.

Please head over to Little Red Wagon and link up your own NEW project. We'd love to see what you create!
