I was going to do my normally crafty post, but I'll be really honest with you - the feeling of "rough as toast", which I've been mentioning over the last few posts....that continues, and meant I had a rubbish nights sleep, which means the jobs today have piled up so I'm meeting myself coming back. Please don't take this as a call for sympathy. I'm absolutely fine, I've just got a sore throat - the party will go on - I'll just be quiet(er). And maybe not quite as tipsy :)
I had planned on being quite indulgent anyway. I was planning on making something that will not eventually, be given away - but I wanted to make something personal. New Year does make us reflect, and it's a perfect time to make something to capture the moments of the last year which were special, different, unforgettable. As I say some events are unforgettable - but unfortunately, lives become so hectic we forget so many wonderful things which have happened, and we tend to keep all our photo's hidden away on our phones or facebook - that we don't enjoy the memories fully. With this in mind, I am going to create a piece of wall art for 2015.
Where to start. Well, I've decided it will be a combination of drawing, printing and digital. I may even use Serif. And don't worry - I will keep you posted so you can see where I'm up to. The most tricky part is going through the year for those little nuggets of gold.
So, I will start my project tomorrow, and take you through the steps - I feel this is one of those that may take me much longer than I anticipate.
I hope you will join me on my little journey remembering 2015.
Until then, however, I need to wish you all a very Merry New Year. I hope 2016 brings you happiness, joy and peace. Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments, wishes of luck, and support during this last year. I know it's cheesy, but I always said, without the people watching us on Craft TV, we wouldn't have a job. And I know I am incredibly lucky to have such a wonderful job.
I'm really looking forward to this next year - it's already exciting, scary and has adventure written all over it! And it's lovely to be able to share it with so many people, who are my crafty family.
Lots of love everyone, see you in 2016!!!
