Happy New Year!!

This year I would like to ...

1. re-connect with my sewing machine ... I have a number of un finished projects ;-)

2. work on the Vignette BOM that I have mostly purchased from QFD ( need a second parcel of goodies to get started)

3. plan for a family Christmas at our house ... I know a long way off but I want to do it differently and make it a special one ... so searching for yummy recipes and ways to decorate our new lounge/ dining/ kitchen area

4. take more photos ... I feel like I didn't take as many in 2010 as previous years

5. enjoy our new reno (when it is finished ;-)) and maybe buy a little bit of new furniture!! Or at least buy a few more decorative things to hang around the room, I ordered a great print on Etsy but it got damaged part way here so waiting for it still.

6. have lots of fun!! Feel like New Years day was a good starting point to this part of the plan!! Lots of fun just sitting under a pergola all day with friends and laughing a lot!! I have some wonderful friends and we have some great times together!!

7. keep on scrapping and planning for our Escape2Create retreat in April and maybe a mini retreat later in the year

8. Have at least one stitching mini break with 3 special stitching gals - we deserve it!!

9. try lots of new recipes ... can't wait to connect with my new oven and use some of the recipes in my 2 new cook books ... Donna Hay & Jamie Oliver's latest ones. Just want to try and cook special meals more often ... look out girls on our stitching and scrapping days ... hopefully you will be in for a treat!! LOL

10. see our beautiful children grow a little more ... boy Jack & Lach are getting tall already!! I am starting to feel a little short and they are only  nearly 8 and 9!!

11. maybe have a few trips away with John ... our one night in Melbourne to go to the Eagles concert was wonderful!!

12. celebrate my sister's 40th soon ... good family time ... looking forward to that little trip!!

Hhhmmm that's all I can think of so far!!

Just want to basically love life and appreciate its preciousness!! :-)

Happy New Year to everyone who read this little blog ...

I am continually surprised by the people that mention that they saw something on my blog!!
