I'm Back!

2013 was a year of massive challenges and changes for me and I'm looking forward to 2014 as a year to focus on my jewelry designing and blogging. There's something so optimistic and inspiring about the beginning of a new year. Anything is possible and I intend to embrace it.
Health issues led to my early retirement and move to Hamilton, Ontario where I can live more economically and pursue my creativity. It has become a mecca for artists since the steel mills closed down and the motto for the redeveloped city is "Art is the New Steel". Broken Pencil blog wrote about the art scene in Hamilton. There is an atmosphere of "anything goes" and this encourages me to exercise my imagination and see where it takes me .
I have neglected my blog since the summer but intend to put more effort into it. I've signed up for Grow Your Blog 2014  hosted by Vicki  in hopes that this will help get me back on track in the blogosphere. It's such a wonderful place filled with wonderful people who inspire me everyday.
I wish all of you a wonderful and happy new year!


  1. I'm glad you've signed up for Grow Your Blog, and look forward to keeping up with you this year.

  2. Thanks , Bonnie. It was you who told me about Grow Your Blog on FB. Thank you for providing the kick start I need!
    Happy New Year!

  3. Looking forward to reading more from you, Nan... I haven't decided about Vicki's event yet. I really enjoyed meeting new bloggers there last year (wasn't a participant but had fun anyway). I've had the signup saved since Vicki posted it in October, but my January is already packed... and I said I was gonna "take it easy" this month. Ha!


Thank you for all your lovely comments! I love to read them and they really make my day.
