    Happy New Year Cathy! I’ve started following your posts this year and I love it. Thanks for the many inspiration on graphic design in general, but with Project Life, especially. Because of you (and your videos) I’ll be starting it this 2013.

    When you originally shared your favourite recipe of all time, I tried it. It was a hit! I was just thinking yesterday that I need to make it again. I’m lactose intolerant and it is so worth the discomfort!

    I have been in a busyness vortex since last February, when this fleeting, teeny thought crossed my mind – ‘gee, I’ve got some free time on my hands’. Silly rabbit – NEVER think that thought unless you seriously want to get busy.
    So, I said that by way of explaining why I haven’t read your blog in forever. And why I therefore missed the TED Talks link to Sarah Kay. And why I was not knocked on my ass until just now.
    Thank you thank you.

    Oh snap! I’m wondering why our emails are not getting to you? I sent mine on Dec 7 and he on Dec 12. I just re-sent mine. Could you check and see if it arrived? Maybe you could send me an email at jessica at treehousei dot com and see if that arrives. I’m so sorry about this but it’s exciting stuff so I hope you’re okay with a little investigative work to figure it out. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Happy New Year Cathy! Great seeing the posts I missed and re-visiting others that I loved as well. Looking forward to 2013 and more creative inspiration! Thank you for always keeping it so real!

    I don’t comment that much, but I just wanted to mention how much I enjoy your blog and your adventures. Thanks for the freebies too. Very much appreciated! I signed up for the type class earlier this year and I really enjoyed that too. I like classes I can dip into as time permits.

    Okay, I thought that was all I was going to say, but I guess I have a bit more:

    Thank you very much for talking so candidly about the work you are doing in your personal life. As a person who lives with similar struggles, it can be very validating, helpful, and inspiring to remember that there are others on this journey as well. Some days up, some days down, but we all keep plugging away, as best we can, right?

    Bright blessings to you and your family, and to your fellow blog readers, as well. Here’s to a creative and fulfilling 2013 to us all.

    Love ya CZ! Have followed you for years..since the early posts of explaining to the deli counter that you want THIN turkey (yes!) and many others along the way. Through fitness adventures and the right workout clothes. I’ve taken a class or two online…and I’ve always appreciated your humor and your ability to be real. I started following you for your inspiring design and although I don’t scrapbook much anymore, yours is one of the only blogs I consistently read. The very best to you in 2013…I’ll be right here ๐Ÿ™‚

    Oh my goodness… Thank you for putting this together. Loved every single post, and all the suggested links as well. My biggest problem reading your blog is simply that once I start, I can’t stop. ๐Ÿ˜‰
