New Year 2013… Newbie party with a twist!

Well well, here we are just about in a New year!

I am blogging on the fly here as I get ready to hit the road!

Happy 2013 to you all!

What will it bring to us, well, let’s just take it day by day and enjoy the moment.

I am not big into planning too much, or even setting too many goals.

I hate to disappoint myself if I do not reach them.

Therefore, I like to wing most of what I do here, there,and everywhere.

I LOVE being spontaneous! that just thrills me to wake up and see what pops in my head for the day.

I do have two/three very talented and creative contributors joining me soon.

They will share once a month their projects, crafts, recipe or whatever they so choose.

They are fabulous and you are going to LOVE them, just as much as I do.

Very excited about that!~

So let’s kick off the New year with the Newbie party with a twist.

This is the Newbie parties second year anniversary.

I am glad I stuck with it….not only for you, but for me as well.

I have found some of the greatest friends through this party, and I know you have too.

Let’s get this party started!

 Don’t forget, to mix and mingle and make some new friends.

that is why you are here!

Mix with the Newbie graduates too…they are super people that not too long ago

TWO places to link up so pay mind to what you are doing:)

I plan on shouting and sharing on Facebook, and then doing a big feature post each week.

    I fly by the seat of the pants through blogland,most of the time. Rarely have an idea for a post until one just pops in my mind. I hurry up and get some pictures before the idea pops out of my mind.:-)
    I like your style Debbie.
    Happy New Year!

    Hi Debbie: Excited to see who your new contributors are, and so thankful for your hosting the Newbie Party for us. You are so very nurturing to new bloggers, and I for one very much appreciate it :) I wish you a very Happy New Year! We had gorgeous sunny cold weather here today, and went out for a long walk along the trails and river–it was lovely.

    This has been quite a year for me…I started blogging and this past weekend I went over 100 followers! I’ve joined your Newbie party often and can’t thank you enough for all your help and inspiration. Guess that means I’m a graduate! Thanks for hosting.
    Wishing you a safe & Happy New Year!
    Debbie :)

    Happy New Year dear Miss Doos. I am having a hard time believing a whole year of blogging has gone by. Then I think about being another year older and realize at least blogging distracted me from thinking about aging!

    Hi Debbie, I just stumbled upon your beautiful blog and I’m so glad I did. I started a cottage blog 10 months ago and have under 100 followers, so I’ll be linking up today as a “Newbie”. :-) I like what you say about your Newbie party on your “about” page, “This IS not a blog hop, nor a link and leave party.” I grow weary of blog hops whose sole intent is to get followers. Gosh, I’d rather have 20 good blogger friends who frequent my blog than 500 “followers” who could care less about my blog and probably will never come back. Okay, enuf said. I’m excited to be here and follow your blog. Already I can see it’s going to be a long-time love affair. Thanks for hosting and providing such a beautiful spot to meet others. Best wishes for a great 2013. I can’t wait to see what you bring to us this year. — Nancy
