Well tomorrow is New Year's Eve... Do you have big plans or is it just a low key night at your house? Sometimes the home parties watching movies and eating great snacks is just the kind of relaxing you need! My husband and I are having brunch at some friends and then just doing a home night in the evening! I hope everyone has a 'Happy New Year' and keeps on working towards those dreams and goals!
I've been busy working on fresh designs for my store, lets see I did some funny animal characters and used them on cute birthday cards and valentine greeting cards. I've also done some pretty valentine designs. Come by my store for a look at the latest creations.

Well hard to believe tomorrow is Christmas Eve. Are you all ready? Got your wrapping and baking and dinner items ready to go? I believe I'm ready, did a little more baking yesterday and today was a cleaning day! Went to the gym this morning too, don't want to put the gym routines aside, it's important to keep up your physical exercise routine otherwise it can be hard to get back in the groove. Well I really want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and peace, love and joy for the new year! I've been working on designs for my store for Valentines, and birthdays. Pop by for a look if you like!

Have you got your Christmas baking underway? I've been busy this last week making several different treats. Let's see I made Chocolate Toffee Squares, Toffee Almond Squares, Golden Butter Tarts, and Candy Cane Bark! The last 2 are my husbands favourites! Now the problem is every time we walk by the fridge those goodies are calling our names...I think it's alright to indulge as long as you keep on your fitness and exercise routine. I was at the gym at 8:30 this morning! I always feel better even if I have to drag my butt there sometimes! :-) Remember regular exercise can keep you feeling and looking younger for longer, and I think we all would like that! Anyhow, since I did all that baking, of course I photographed it and came up with some recipe greeting cards for my store. These are pretty cool as I've included a recipe inside the card! Pop by my store for a look, you can find them in the side bar under 'recipe greeting cards'!Shell's Designs Have a great week!

Just a reminder that as each of us gets busier this time of year be sure to remember to smile, laugh and stay positive as you're in the midst of shopping, baking, wrapping, etc. A cheerful spirit goes a long way and happy thoughts can keep you balanced! I've been busy again coming up with new designs and adding more products to my store. Zazzle is on it's 7th day of sales. 30% off totebags today. A new sale will be on tomorrow, so pop by to see what deals there are!
