Family fun has kept me away from cyber land until now.
We could not have wished for our NY celebrations to have been any better as we were blessed with the amazing company of my Mom, Sister, BIL and little nephew," Willby".
Our days were spent eating, walking off the excess poundage and generally having lots of fun thanks to the copious amounts of fizzy falling down water which we consumed - oppppps!
After a hearty breakfast (and with a rather tearful goodbye) , we waved goodbye to our guests before we started to prepare for Bobs big day.
My baby is 16 today!!!
How did that happen????
Happy Birthday Bobs.x.x.x.x. We love you loads.x.x.x.x.
Hubs is off to the hospital today to have surgery on his shoulder - its a rather comical but long story as to how and why it happened, but basically he feel off the roof of our house and has injured his shoulder quite badly - surgery is required to fix it and he is going to be home for at least the next 6 weeks....which means I am going to be playing nurse maid, taxi driver, chief fetcher and carrier and general dogs body for the foreseeable future :P
Scrapping wise - I made a pact that over the festive season I would step away from my scrap room as I believe a little rest is good for the soul. Ive really missed not scrapping daily but have also enjoyed the time away from my supplies as now I'm feeling refreshed and renewed and raring to go......which is a good thing as I received a huge box of new Prima goodies to play with and have loads of ideas for future projects and pages.
The first week of the new year sees my pal Dina Wakley as the guest designer over on Pencil Lines. I'm a huge fan of her artsy style and only wish I could work paint like she can....maybe one day eh?
I used the sketch to document my word for 2010 which is ....
I used papers from a Norwegian manufacturer, Papirdesign, which I happened to pick up whilst I was in Norway with Dina :D
I chose the word Clarity as I really want 2010 to be a year when I clear out a lot of emotional and materialistic baggage - I want my head and my life to be clear and focused.
I'm not sure if its an age thing or not, but I'm kinda getting a bit fed up with "muddy waters" and am developing a need for everything in my life to be crystal clear.....so I guess Clarity is a good word for me.
Did you chose a word for yourself - a word to keep you motivated throughout the coming year? If so what was it?
And finally - the winner of the Cosmo Cricket Jolly by Golly RAK is this lucky lady.
Drop me an email with your address and I'll get the goodies in the post to you straight away.
Have a great day and thanks for popping by.
