Hi there friends! I'm on holidays at the moment and pleased to say I have been scrapping with my buddies in Esperance. I have also been planning classes for this year and I'm very excited about it all. I'll show some layouts I've been working on when they are finished. I have some new stock in too. The new valentines range by Basic Grey "Bittersweet" is gorgeous and could be used for plenty of themes other than valentines day. The range includes the usual papers, stickers etc. but there are also gorgeous card packs that include all you need with instructions to make 12 stunning cards. I'm hoping to start working on some samples soon to inspire you with Valentines layouts.

No other exciting news yet except that I have begun preparation for the Hyden retreat that is on the 27th - 29th of March 2009 so stay tuned for more details. Back soon.

Happy New Year!

I would like to wish all my clients, friends and viewers a very
I hope it is successful and safe for you all.

There is no limit to what you can do apart from what you limit yourself from doing in your mind - so throw off your own limitations and go for it! I have so many goals I want to achieve this year and I love to start the year with them in mind so I know what I'm working towards, especially when it requires really hard work, I need to keep the end goal in mind so I don't flag and give up. Nothing worth having comes easily so I'm expecting some hard slog along the way. I think I'm up to it!

One thing I want to do it learn to manage my time better - in fact I think I have had this goal for a few years now and although I think I've improved I can always do better. There are so many demands on us these days with the hectic pace of life so if I have a plan in place I may achieve all, or most, of what I need to I'm starting with a new calendar and a new diary and I'm going to plan my heart away. Matt and I always do a review of the past year financially in January and then plan for the coming year. Its a challenge but it gives us a much clearer view of where we are going and where we have come from, what we have done well at and not so well at.
I love this time of year.

My new calendar is a desktop type that comes in kit form by K & Company. I constructed mine last week and now I can go ahead and fill in the planner and add photos as the months go by. I love this calendar and I think it will inspire me to scrap or to think about scrapping if I don't have time for it! Here it is...

I have been scrapping my little heart out this week in between cleaning and sorting the house and scrapbook room. I have a few layouts almost finished so I'll share when they are done. I'm really excited about them!
Anyway, have a great day and great year. Be back soon...
