I'm Back and ready for the New Year

     A new year, a new start!  I spent the month of December helping my oldest daughter who lives in Ohio get herself settled after dealing with some major changes she will be dealing with in 2014.  It felt good to be able to leave my home and help her with her 3 wonderful but active kids.
   How do I start out the new year?  I have an almost uncontrollable need to have everything in my house organized.  Drawers, shelves, cabinets, cupboards.  It is fun doing the organizing and even more fun having everything in order.
1. First I looked at my January and February perpetual calendar pages and made cards for each person on the list.

2. After choosing the card, I addressed each envelope and instead of putting a stamp on the envelope, I wrote the date that I need to mail the card.  This will then be covered up by the stamp.

3. I try to always work one month ahead, so at the end of January I will get the March cards ready to go. I love sending out homemade cards and do so for family, my quilt guild members and for all my customers and downline.

   I had a great time looking over the cards I had made this past year and choosing the ones I thought matched the person on the list.  I feel ready to start the new year now that this has been completed.

What do you do to get ready for the new year?
