Like I do every year - I've been rummaging through, sorting out, purging, reorganizing, evaluating, touching and thinking.
Sunday it was my office, yesterday our studio and today my bedroom closets and drawers.

Also - with the countdown to the New Year, I'm hard at work reorganizing, redecorating, reworking, cleaning up and clearing out Clevelandgirlie.

Some changes are coming to my little corner of the cyberworld as I prepare for and look forward to stitching and painting my way through 2009 -- with YOU!!! I'm taking these last few days of 2008 to finish up (and ride my new bike!!) and will be back on line by January 2nd with a bit of a new look AND......

GIVEAWAY surprise to start the New Year off on the right.

So - What are YOU planning to do differently in 2009? Hmmmmm? Enjoy these last few days of 2008.
Make them COUNT!


P.S. Oh, and Thank You Santa! Gizmo and I are sooooo happy.

Hi Cathie! I'm cleaning out around here too. It's amazing the crap that I have saved (like the extra fabric from EVERY curtain I've made in the last 11 years!!!) I'm so glad Santa gave you the bike you wanted! Have a Happy New Year!

I hope to make the most of every minute whatever I am doing and to make sure everyone in my life knows how valuable they are. How's that for lofty asperations.

that's a great looking bike you got from Santy! hope you have many, many hours of sheer pleasure riding it. :)

as for 2009 ... I have actually started lists and have been sort of contemplating 2008 ... brain's in a bit of a jumble, but feels like the air is suddenly ... cleaner, fresh actually. :)

Dear Cathie, I wish a great Happy New Year to you and your family. I have a wonderful garden book to write 2009 my ideas in it, I have a lot of inspirations because it 's a lovely garden book (thank you so much!). Cathie next year I will have the chance to make an exhibition with my own photographs, isn 't it great?! This is what I 'm planning to do well in 2009.
Love Wurzerl

Oh Cathie...looks like Santa was 'GOOD' to you!!! How exciting and a red one too! Love both pictures of Gizmo in the drivers seat of the Jeep! You have the Jeep that my husband has been drooling over! ;-)

Doing differently in 2009...not over extending myself and playing around a bit more!

Wishing you and yours a very Happy New Year full of joy, peace, and creativity...xo~Lisa ;-)
