New Years Resolution

Happy New Year (for tomorrow of course).....

I haven't made a resolution for quite some years (that I've been able to achieve that is), but I believe this year I should and I can!!!

This year shall be about me........... (well, as much as a working Mum with 4 other loved members in the immediate family can pull off)....

This year I shall make myself some gorgeous items (as opposed to procrastinating or becoming sidetracked).  I shall also blog about abovementioned gorgeous items including pictures so each of my blogging buddies can also appreciate with me the gorgeous items I shall create.  And of course, by sharing more I can then absorb the encouraging comments that are left for me which will motivate me to organise my time better and keep going!!!!  Yeah!!!!!!

Blogging is great - although I don't post a lot, I have my favourite sites that I follow (aka stalk) and I am continually blown away by the close friendships that have grown and are maintained in cyberspace - people who genuinely care for and are interested in each other's lives - quite often people who have never met in the flesh, yet offer encouragement and support when needed and share celebrations when good things happen!!!!

So, thats my physical challenge - I do also have a character building resolution.....methinks one I should keep to myself for now - hopefully (definately) by the end of 2012 I can share my personal growth and you can all celebrate the good things that have happened with me.....I shall journal this progression in a beautifully covered book that will be made this weekend while I have 4 days off......picture following :)

Have a safe New Years Eve everyone - may 2012 bring abundance, blessings and much happiness to each of my readers and your families.

Hmmmmmm, so what fabric's shall I start with....................?

Christmas at My House

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..................

I recently participated in a Christmas swap and the 15th was the day we got to open our pressies...this is what I received from my partner.....a tote bag with a matching zipper pouch, a nice sewing pouch with a notebook in matching fabric, some fairy dust, a second cute little notebook, a teabag pouch, a crocheted teatowel, another little needle case along with a little bag of cute labels. 

I must add that Nomesie sent me a couple of tempter pressies that I was allowed to open earlier - a bookmark, a little owl scissor fob and some lovely address stickers that she made herself....there are piccy's on earlier posts of mine if you would like to take a peek.  Thank you Naomi - they're lovely. I haven't seen you online for some time, so I hope you have received your box of goodies and enjoy opening them also.

Christmas in retail is gearing up......we have our Christmas tree up at home, but have not got a lot of anything else accomplished yet.  I hope to publish another post before Christmas day, but if I don't then I wish all of my blogging buddies a wonderful Christmas full of fun, good food and copious amounts of love and a safe and Happy (lets add prosperous as well) New Year.
