It's a brand new year, my friends. This is going to be a better year... it has to be. I'm not really going to bother with a long list of resolutions this time. After forty-odd years I've finally figured out that resolutions are way too flimsy for the likes of me, especially when there's no fear of fire and brimstone! LOL.

So, I'm adopting a CAS approach and will simply look forward to a better & brighter year.  And speaking of bright... I have a little something to share with ya! Behold, my New Year's gift for you:

A basket of gold nuggets....only these are better than gold nuggets. Ferrero Roche....my fave! 

This basket can comfortably hold 18 of these goldies. During the course od this photo shoot and devoured 3...leaving only 15 in the basket... but for how long, I wonder?!

The recipe for this basket: scrap patterned paper, Poinsettia die by Marianne Creatables, white lace, X-cut Flower Border Punch, green gingham ribbon and a decent number of Ferrero Roche!
I'm sharing my basket of goodies (hope there's enough to go around!) with Pin & Tack Spark your Creativity #5 "Anything Goes"; Tuesday Alchemy #47 "Hopes, Dreams and Resolutions"; Tuesday Throwdown #128 "Bright and Happy New Year" and Party Time Tuesday #101 "Celebrate".

Thanks for stopping by and I'll see you later today when we return to our regular scheduled program. Have a blessed day and may you find hidden treasures through out this new year!
