Greetings To A New Year 2019

Well Hello
Welcome to this beautiful life.
It is a cold winter day on January 1, 2019.
Usually it is on the arrival of a new year.
It is January in Utah
It is Cold!
I have been trying to get my 
Home back to order
After Christmas it seems good to
try and get things back to normal.

The problem is. . .
Everything looks so bare.
Every table top and shelf looks
Dull and bare.
So New Years Day
I will spend time trying to liven the
winter decor to not look so bare.
Arrange and rearrange.

Welcome to my world

December Is Waiting To Enter

It is waiting to makes it's entrance.

Ready or not all the hustle and bustle
is knocking on the door.
Am I ready?  Haha! no but I had
better get with it.

I told my daughter, I am just not
going to decorate this year.
She laughed!

She said,
"Mom you say that every year, and guess what?
You always decorate."

So she was really saying,
Stop, complaining and do what you always do. . 

Decorate for Christmas. . .
So it all begins. . Come back and 
watch the Christmas decorating  of my home.

It Is Good To Be Thankful

It is a common thing 
that we express what we are
for at this time leading to

I believe it is good to express my
All the Time.

No matter where my journey in life takes us
it is good to express my 
We all have our highs and our lows
Good times and difficult times.

As my Auntie would say,
"It is just one thing after another."

I have had my share of "lows".
Difficult times, and struggles.

I do believe my good days have 
out numbered my difficult days.

It is true. . . 
"Count your many blessings
name them one by one,
and it will surprise you
what the Lord has done!"

There is something about 
writing and naming my blessings
One by One
that makes me feel more positive
and happy about life.
It seems my blessings increase
One by One.

For me I write in my
Gratitude Journal
I reflect on my day, and I
write the things I am most 
for on that particular day.

I am always amazed at what 
marvelous things I am
Blessed  with.

November Ramblings

It is a beautiful chilly November day
where I live. And I like it!
November is one of my favorite months.

I have many special reasons why I love this month.  
My first child Mathew was born in November.
The birth of a child you never forget.
My second grandson Andrew is also a
November baby.  I also have other reason to
Love November.

November is a time for 
Families to gather together.
Children, Parents, Grandparents
Aunts, Uncles, Cousins.
We all gather as families and friends
to begin the biggest
celebration of all

Begins the Christmas Season for me.
But, first I like Thanksgiving,
I don't want to rush it out of the way
I like to savor the season of giving 

I believe that everything is centered around being Together.
And that Family is everything.  
With Friendship closely linked.



No matter the circumstances of our life,
we are still part of a family.
This month and every month I give thanks for
the Blessings of Family, Friends, Gathering.
I am thankful for November. . .
It reminds me of the precious gift I have

Every Good Witch Knows. . . .

Oh, yes every good witch knows. . . 
Stay with your first instinct!

I began my blog many years ago with the intent of keeping a
visual record of my decorating. . .Thus
Karie's Chic Creations was born.
I have talked about many things besides my
decorating. . .I have made friends along my way.

How could I even begin to think I could 
delete this precious blog of mine?
Ugh! What was I thinking?
So pardon the lapse in good judgment
please continue with my ever so unpredictable journey
blogging about my life!

I invite you into my home this Harvest Season.
I don't decorate for Halloween. . .I am past that stage 
in my life.. . and besides I don't like things that are
scary or creepy. . .I like cutesy! 
I call it Harvest. . .!  Or just plain 

Oh, but I do like my cute little witch and her shoes.

I like her shoes, because as we all know
Every good witch knows 
it is all in the shoes!

Do come back. . .OK?
