I won't bore you about all the stuff I've been doing these past few weeks with regard to sorting out "what on earth am I going to do with the rest of my life"; or being ill with "the cold to make up for years of never getting a cold"; or the heating breaking down (and it's really, really cold here again, we are deep in ice and snow and sub zero temperatures -11 degrees tonight) . What happened to those famous UK mild, wet winters, when we longed to see a snowflake, huh?
But I digress, as usual. You'll notice a few changes here and there, like the different name! This is my maiden name which I'm beginning to use again - all part of the life changing stuff, and getting back to 'me' again. I have been busy with lots of creative ideas and I'm looking forward to sharing them in the New Year. The blog may be changing a wee bit in 2011, hope you like the new approach!
Last week it was my 50th birthday ( no no, you cry, it can't be, she's so youthful, a mere babe... yeah, right....). Seriously, I am now 50 years young, and I had a magical day, celebrating with my family. I was so lucky and had some wonderful gifts, but I want to share this one, because I was so thrilled with it.
Andy asked what I would like for my special birthday and I told him I would love a necklace designed by the talented Joanne May (not actually thinking he would remember, but bless him, he did). Lovely Jo designed me this beautiful golden hare necklace, and then added the gorgeous bag charm as a gift from herself.
Thank you Jo, I love this so much, it's the perfect present, and the charm was such a sweet and kind thought.
I had so many craft books I shall definitely have to buy a new bookcase for my room! Oh, the wonderful ideas and inspiration....
So, finally I just want to say thank you to all my blogging friends for their wonderful posts, which by turn make me:
- laugh (often)
- cry (sometimes)
- be inspired (regularly)
