New Year's Eve 2012

Today it has been...

I am already for monthly journaling this new year, hopefully I will make it through all 12 months this time. I managed 10 months this year.


The whole double page in my new Dylusions journal (which I adore).

We are off to the cinema to see 'The Hobbit' in a mo as we have a babysitter! I hope you all have a good evening, whatever you are doing. (I'm more of a Christmas person than New Year).

It just remains for me to say Happy New Year to you all. I hope to be a better blogger in 2013.

Hugs and best wishes for to ight and the new year.

A Journal Page and some Mince Pies

I have been trying to journal my reading, partly for me and partly as a way of modelling an independent love of reading for my classes. I thought I would share one complete page and one in progress. It has been a therapeutic journey and has made me look at texts differently too.


Can you guess the text?


Just need to add icing sugar later.

A bit of doodling too. I can't recommend 'Creative Doodling and Beyond' too highly. It is a good resource to have for ideas.

I am looking forward to being more creative in 2013. I am looking forward to keeping balance more in 2013.

What are you looking forward to? Thanks for stopping by today. Hugs Cherry X


Wish for 2013

Clare's free online journal course has started.

Her first lesson is ready and is fab. I really enjoyed watching it with a nice glass of Merlot. It really inspired me and was a tonic. Do pop over to our forum on Craftbubble and join in.

I have decided to do it in my journal and used a double page.

I loved it was all centred around the word WISH and 2013. Perfect start indeed. Another start for us is the riding of a bike - great fun.

Have fun, hope the weather is a little drier than it is here where you are.

Happy Christmas 2012

It is such a long while since I posted. I have missed posting and crafting. I am going to aim to post once a month and see if that is sustainable with working and family life. I did want to wish everyone a Happy Christmas 2012.


Please ignore the date, not sure what my iPad is doing!
