Here's to a brand new year

I am sure that 2012 had some good moments, in fact I know it did, but they are certainly overshadowed by a lot of other stuff. My year ends on a sad note with the death of a man I admired, though hadn't seen for quite some time. No matter what, he always had a twinkle in his eye and a witty comment on the tip of his tongue. He grabbed life with both hands and made the most of everything- the good, the bad & the ugly and he died doing what he loved. The last 2 years have been full of so much sadness, bad news and life changes that I can only hope 2013 will bring with it a more joy and calm.

Wishing you and yours a healthy, happy, calm and creative New Year.

Thank you and goodnight

To my dear blog followers, I think it has been obvious that my attention to my poor little blog has been waning of late. The last two years have been a hard slog healthwise and it now appears that next year will be even harder.

I had good intentions of trying to catch you up on the cards and even make it to the end of the year. I am not one to give  up lightly and always try to live up to my promises. This time it is just too hard. I am not abandoning my blog, but it may be a while before I come back.

So thank you for your kind comments, your friendship and I look forward to seeing what you are all up to on your blogs.

Thank you and goodnight.

Hi all, sorry about the prolonged absence but the wheels came flying off here just after my last post and we are scrambling to get back to normal. Family comes first and so my poor little blog got pushed to the end of the queue and is still sitting patiently waiting for me to catch up. I have a few cards to post, but am seriously out of whack with the numbering, so will just post them in dribs & drabs until life returns to "normal".

October Layout

While we don't celebrate Halloween as such here, my youngest was invited to a Birthday/Halloween party a number of years ago and went all witchy. So thought this layout was appropriate for this particular month. I waited until after I took the page photo before writing the journaling, purely for privacy reasons.
