Happy New Year!

I will take this moment to thank everyone for a fabulous year!

First and foremost - to Lori Anderson: her Bead Soup was my 'debutant ball' in the jewelry community... and what a wonderful community she introduced me too! It truly started this January, a bit less than a year ago... and it went higher, stronger, faster - just like the Olympics :)

To all my partners and hosts in the countless of challenges and blog hops I participated: thank you for your kindness and generosity, without all these fun happenings I would have withered away as I had before. Instead, I feel I bloomed and I have new energy every time!

To all my new friends (too many to name) - thank you for your support and continuous encouragements. The community is fabulous and I grew a lot with your help over these past 12 months.

To all customers and followers (on the blog or all other social media): thank you for your patronage. I love creating and making people happy one piece of beauty at a time :)

To my family and friends: thank you for putting up with my crazy hours and for all the help while I am trying to spread my new wings :)

To my two special men in my life (hubby and son): thank you for everything, even for lovingly nick-naming what I do (I can't find a proper translation, as both use a Romanian term that has nothing in common with jewelry :)).

To all: I wish you a New Year filled with joy and happiness, health and sparkle, dreams come true and opportunities. May your wishes come true and may God (or Nature or other Deities) keep you and your loved ones healthy and happy.

Happy New Year (2013) from all of us @ All Pretty Things!
Happy 2013!
