Hah! Now I'm tempted to start crafting something right after midnight to see if I can get the first item done. Though people on the East Coast would have 3 hours on me, so I probably wouldn't get it. I hope to start and finish some items tomorrow though.

I hope people will be out with family and friends or watching the ball drop! Cheesy

2013 can be as good as we make it...I think it will be a tough year but that we all will get through it with help from our family and friends, here and IRL!
