Christmas Greetings & Thank You!

To a joyful present and a well-remembered past

What a great year 2015 has been and it was made all the more special because of you, my followers, visitors, and friends. Some of you have been with me from the beginning and I’ve been very fortunate to continue to meet an abundance of extremely phenomenal people – Thank you!

As a small token of my appreciation for your support in being part of my community I created a Christmas card slide show, complete with music even. Along with the video, below are the individual slides with descriptions provided in Alt text. Enjoy and Here’s to Wishing You a Very Merry Christmas! ~Steph

Hope makes all things work,
May you have all three for this Christmas. (Image two red Christmas trees, one made out of fake berries and smaller than the other one made out of Christmas bulbs.)
May you have all three for this Christmas.
A blessed Christmas to you! (Image is a close up of a miniature silver artificial Christmas tree with miniature red bulbs)
A blessed Christmas to you!
