Getting Ready for 2012!


WOW! I cannot believe it is 2012! It has been such a busy year here for us! God has blessed us immensely! Last year, our older son, Matt, took an amazing job in Charleston, SC, moving his family (along with 3 of our grandchildren) with him. But, with only a three to four hour drive, we now get to visit our most favorite destination often! I won’t take up much of your time today. You’re been busy these last few weeks taking down Christmas decorations, shopping for those wonderful bargains, and enjoying family.

While looking for bargains, I hope you didn’t forget to check with your local hobby stores, if you enjoy making wreaths, or other types of florals. This is an amazing time to find GREAT bargains there.

Two years ago, we happened to go into a Hobby Lobby in a nearby town the first week in January. They had literally JUST moved all Christmas merchandise which was left over to one isle — an unadvertised special — and reduced it to 90% off.

My husband, bless his heart, saw this first and pointed it out to me. We loaded up THREE buggies with garlands, ornaments, and flowers, and paid $90.00 for it. Folks, that was $900.00 worth of Christmas merchandise that I was able to pull out the following year and use. Needless to say: I WAS THRILLED!

I am in the mood for new spring wreaths! I have been planning, and thinking, and looking at pictures of wreaths I have made in the past. Boy, am I ready for it this year!

Looking Ahead!

Happy New Year’s Eve Eve! I won’t take up much of your time today. I know you’re probably taking down Christmas decorations, shopping for those wonderful bargains, and enjoying family.

The wreath above REALLY does something for me this time of year when it is still really cold and drab outside, and February is just a little over four weeks off. This very special Valentines wreath warms my heart making me think of the sunny, spring days ahead, how about you?

If I have learned one thing from my mentor, Jim Cockrum, it is to give my customers what they want, and make it FREE when I can! I am making YOU some more FREE videos to go along with the longer, more detailed videos I have for sale. As a matter of fact, you’ll see one right down below this article! MAKE SURE YOU DON’T MISS IT! And, I literally have page after page of notes filled with new ideas, and things I want to offer you in the coming year.

We are so blessed! I am so grateful for YOU, and that you chose to receive my weekly newsletters. Stay tuned… I have some very exciting things in mind for the new year, so you don’t want to miss out on a single thing!

If there is anything you would like to see Ladybug Wreaths offer for the coming year, this is your chance! Send me an email! Tell me what you are interested in, what you might like to see in a video or an e-book, or even in coaching. I promise you, I’ll see what I can do. I am open to all of your suggestions, always.
