A New Year

Oooh what promise and potential it bears!

I have had such a wonderful and action-packed break over the festive period, with Christmases, time at home, time away, time with family and friends, and our wee Scamp come to stay with us! Thank you so very much, all, for your lovely birthday well wishes :) I had a marvellous day, was very spoilt and am now happily on my 28th lap of the sun!

Before I look ahead with glee at this fabulous and well-balanced-feeling year (2010 - don't you think it seems so solid and grounded?) I want to have a little acknowledgement of 2009 and achievements therein.

My main mission of the year was the 52 in 52 challenge - manifested both in book and craft form. In both categories I fell a little short, but had an absolute BLAST recording my progress and seeing my completions! I found that I was able to prioritise what I wanted to create and read, and was more aware of what I was doing and absorbing - it was a wonderful experience!

I highly recommend giving this a shot; if not with books or craft, perhaps with something else you like to do? (52 bush walks to try... bands to listen to... movies to watch... ??) In fact I enjoyed the 52 in 52 SO much that I'm doing it AGAIN in 2010! Hurrah!! :D

My other general plans include;
  • To refocus on my stash, and using all of the glorious goodies hidden therein
  • To craft MORE! Particularly while I'm working FIFO without my shweetie - what an opportunity to get my knit on!!
  • To revisit my list of 101 in 1001 - so heinously neglected!
I'll blog about these (and who KNOWS what else?!) in more detail in posts to come - for now I'm off to bed with my current book! May your year past and your year ahead both teach and embrace you!
