Wrapping Up 2007

Tonight John is going to make dinner and then we’re going to see The Golden Compass. I know the movie got terrible reviews, but we loved Philip Pullman’s books so we’re hoping it will better than expected. Afterwards we’ll come home and spend a quiet evening together.
Before I go to bed on New Year’s Eve, I like to look back over the year and remind myself of what I have to be grateful about. I usually aim for at least 100 things on my list—from the major to the minor—because it helps me to put the year in perspective. I find if I just focus on the low points in my life, it doesn’t give an accurate picture of what really happened.
For various reasons, 2007 has been one of the most difficult years I’ve experienced. On the other hand, there’s so much to be thankful for, and so much to look forward to. Two creative goals that I set myself this year have been reached. I finished my book and completed my ATC challenge. Earlier this year I’d decided to post 150 digital ATCs to my blog and this is the final one!

I wish you an abundance of blessings for 2008, and I’ll see you next year!

Susan- I wish you and John a very Happy New Year- ditto about the hard part and also much to be thankful for. I am so curious about the movie- I loved his books as well- better than Harry Potter even! Enjoy-
Thanks for the 150 atcs!

Happy New Year Susan. Delighted to have met you finally! We'll have to have lunch again soon.
Love your blog and your ATC images. I hope meeting your 2007 goal doesn't mean that you're not going to be posting ATCS in 2008.
