There's No Place Like Home & A Blog Giveaway!

The" Wizard of Oz Challenge" has come to an end and I have to say I am a bit relieved! I did fail to complete a few of my challenges, but, it is okay!

  I used  Photoshop Elements! So cool...and so much to learn!

There is no place like home when spending the holidays with the people you love most.  Click your heels and let your heart take you there. :)

I pray that each and everyone of you had a Joy filled Christmas.

Keeping in mind this is not to become a challenge for me, but a way of life for the New Year.  I plan to pay more attention to detail  & myself.  Distressing, de-stressing, doodling, de-cluttering, daydreaming, dreaming,  dancingdangling,  dazzling,  dieting (making healthy choices),  digesting,  doing de-mistifying , designing, and having the Determination to just do it!

 Without stess of course!!!

Just one more thing before you go!

There is going to be a Blog Giveaway, so...
if you could please leave me a comment I will email the winner January 10, 2110!
Don't be shy...

Hi Steff, wow, lots of wonderful "d" words, good for you! Good luck on your giveaway. See you on the walk! It's going to be a great year. xox Riki


The sum of happiness is made up of a thousand details. A little kindness done one less fortunate gives the heart a beat of pleasure that no millinery or laces or jewels can possibly inspire.
To overcome prejudice is more satisfying than a ten-course dinner.
To subdue a difficulty and smother a selfish disire is to become strong and splendid.
If life is worth living at all, it is worth living in a state of progress and improvement.
If we moan and groan, filling the air with dissatisfaction and gloom, we can scarcely hope to partake of much contentment.
All you need is a good thump on the back by some cheerful soul who has faith in you, and promise to yourself that you will face your work and your worries cheerfully,-(Selected)
