Hi everyone! Happy New Year. I joined this fun group part way into 2021 and have really enjoyed sending and receiving Happy Mail and would like to continue on the list for 2022.
I am a lover of cards, paper and snail mail, so this is right up my alley. I don’t always handmake my cards and I am not an artist at all, but I do love receiving the creative creations of this talented group. My friend @bugaboo told me about this group as she knew I would love it! She is right.
A bit about me! My name is Anne, I live in the state of New York, about 3.5 hours away from the infamous New York City. I live with my husband and our two dogs. We have three grown children who have all left the nest and moved away, My oldest lives in Boston, Mass and the other two live in separate parts of New York City.
I love crafting but some of my favorites include crocheting, circular yarn machine knitting, playing with my Cricut, paper crafts, soap making, glass etching, etc. I am looking to learn how to sew this year and spin wool better! My BFF and I like to find fun crafts to and attend classes when time allows.
I worked for years as a HR Professional and am blessed to have been able to retire very early in October 2021. A week before I retired I broke my leg, so my first five weeks of retirement was not spent the way I planned. I healed well in time to have family for both Thanksgiving and Christmas. We have many projects in the house for 2022, but the first one is cleaning out my craft room, painting the room, putting down a new floor, followed by some massive organization. It is a heavy lift, but the outcome will be so fun! I am excited to get my happy place cleaned up and organized.
Then we will move on to other rooms of the house. So, I still don’t feel “retired” and I am trying to find my new schedule.
I am starting to assemble my January Happy Mail!
I wish each and everyone of you a very Happy 2022!
