I’ve been so slack and haven’t written anything in my blog or, I confess been checking other blogs for quite some time now.
My apologies to my few loyal, who may not be so loyal now, followers. I promise that soon I will try to sit down and find the time to catch up!
Happy new year to everyone out there. I hope for you, whoever may be reading, that it is a truly wonderful one for you and yours. Make it BE so. You can…..oh you CAN!
My advise, take it or leave it, and MY goal is to enjoy the MOMENTS this year. Not stress about all the things that we usually do, just live in the here and now – soak up every delicious minute!
I’m really going to try to make 2014 a year of enjoyment and letting go of all the petty things that regularly, and pointlessly torment my mind.
I’m also going to spend more time being CREATIVE this year.
It’s begun already and today, the first day of the year I have been in a creative frenzy….oh and it’s LOVELY!
Actually it began a few days ago. Suddenly I was hit with a tidal wave of ideas. Came in from nowhere and I’m just going to go with it, even if some of these things are not usually what I would create.
My aim is to craft enough weird and wonderful things in order to have enough to have a market stall.
Especially now that we’re taking our summer break from candles…well, I need something to keep me happily busy!
(I also plan to go on another cruise this year, this time with my husband (who is not so keen, but willing to try it once, he says.)
I love creating things from useless things. Recycled crafts. Up cycled as the snobby people say 🙂
I will attempt to focus on that as much as I can because it’s something I believe in – trying to make use of stuff instead of having it end up in land fill!
But of course, my creative muse will inevitably take me wherever it pleases, as is it’s flitty nature.
I got stuck for a while, thinking “What theme of crafting will I go with?” thinking that my market stall should look like it knows what it’s audience is and stick to one style.
Well, bugger that, I have decided, because that’s just not ME.
My mind is eclectic and full of random mismatched STUFF, and so shall my market stall.
For some reason shabby chic, which has never been my “thing” has been calling out to me.
I have no idea if it’s even still “in” or not, but I don’t care….I’ve decided that it’s very FUN to make!
One more bottle….less tizzed up this time.
And that’s all for now…
Happy new year to you! And if you’re still speaking to me…..anyone? Tell me what your wild and wonderful plans for 2014 are. I’d love to hear!
