december 31 - some blog housekeeping

It's the last day of the year, so I guess it's a good time to take stock of what has gone on for the past twelve months! This has been a crazy and busy year and I am looking forward to some quieter and calmer days ahead, at least I hope so! 

When I look at my sidebars, I see that I have done quite a bit of reading this year...and not so much stitching. I did actually complete more pieces than are show...some ornies, and a few other small exchanges, but nothing really major this year. There just didn't seem to be that much time for stitching in my life this year.

But I, like so many of you,have embarked on not one, but two crazy challenges for 2011...starting and finishing 15 new projects and finishing an additional 15 UFOs/WIPs. Are we all crazy? Undoubtedly yes! But the journey will be fun.
Thanks to Annette's help, I placed some tabs at the top of this blog, and I have listed the projects I plan to do there. Of course,because I am so compulsive (I guess) there are more than 15 on each list.Maybe I am just optimistic, ,more likely, I am just nuts! 

Unfortunately, I am also starting out the new year with a chest and sinus infection...but I did go to the doctor's this morning and after taking some meds and sleeping most of the day I am finally starting to feel a little bit better.
Jeff and I just got back from a lovely dinner out. We always go for Chinese food on New Year's Eve and it was delicious. Plus, we have lunch for tomorrow!
So I'm off to get my project ready for tomorrow. I'll try to post progress pics each least for the new starts. I am really excited to watch everyone's progress on all the new projects.

Thank you all so much for visiting my blog and leaving comments. I have spent the past couple days at work finding lots of new blogs to visit (I know...I should have been working, but it's the holidays!) and I hope to have time to continue to visit with all of you.

I wish all my readers a very happy new year, filled with love, friends, family, fun, good health and peaceful times.

Thanks for visiting!

Tabs...can anyone help?

Hello again from the most dysfunctional blogger on the planet!
I have been seeing many of you adding tabs under your headers for new pages. This seems like a great idea and a way to get some content out of the sidebars, but I can't figure out how to do it!
I see "pages" under add a gadget, but I can't seem to move them, or be able to tell how they really work. For instance, how do you add content to your pages? 
I know you are all much more savvy than I am when it comes to this stuff, so I am hoping that maybe someone will be able to help.

Thanks so much!

Happy Christmas...and a giveaway

I have been so neglectful of my blog and all my blogging friends lately, but I couldn't let today go by without wishing all my readers the happiest of Christmases (and the happiest of whatever other holiday you may celebrate with your families). I hope you all find love, joy, good health and peace in the coming year.

And in the spirit of sharing, I would like to have a little giveaway. The actual items will be a surprise, but there will be one item for each of the twelve days of Christmas. The drawing will be open through January 5th and I will select one winner from the holiday basket the next day (or the next, if I forget!). Anyone can enter; if you are a follower that would be nice, but it is not necessary. Please make sure to comment on this post only, and please leave a way for me to contact you if you are the winner.

Thanks again for visiting my blog...good luck...and happy Christmas!
