Ringing in a New Year

What are your traditions for ringing in the New Year? My husband and I usually split up on New Years Day. His mom makes a New Years Day dinner with Ham, mashed potatoes, rolls, etc. I typically go to my mom's friend's house for traditional Japanese New Year food. My husband made his mandatory appearance there early in our marriage and has not been back since. LOL. He is not very adventurous when it comes to trying new foods and let's face it, some of that asian food looks weird. The kids usually go with my husband so they can play with their cousins. I don't mind at all because I can truly enjoy my yummy grub without interruption. I have known many of these people since I was in middle school. It's nice to catch up with them, even if they are my mom's friends.

I don't have any New Years cards to share but have some winter and Valentine classes coming up in the near future. I'll share one of those samples. If you check the right column of my blog, you will see my class schedule. I am especially excited to share my Valentine creations with you because I think they are so fun and cute! If you would like to attend a class, be sure to call the store(s) and sign up in advance.

I hope you all have a safe and happy New Year.
