Happy New Year!

New Year

Happy New Year! How’s it going for you so far?

So any plans? Goals? Resolutions? Ambitions? History has seen me makingΒ  lists of resolutions, only to either a) forget them or b) feel really bad about none of them working or c) all of the above 😦 But not this yearΒ  πŸ™‚ This year I have decided to try something a little different and instead just make 5 goals. Within those 5 I have tried to include things that are reasonably achievable and some that are maybe a little more adventurous πŸ™‚ Goals and I haveΒ  never been the best of friends in the past, but I figure the New Year is a great time to make new friends, right?

So let’s do this 2016, let’s be friends πŸ™‚

So whether you make pages of resolutions or just decide to continue being awesome, I wish you all the very best for the coming year πŸ™‚ Have at it πŸ™‚

Happy crocheting! See you next time!

Autumn Cleaning!

Hello!Β  Happy Monday, how was your weekend? Yesterday I spent my Sunday giving my bedroom a thorough cleaning. I keep wanting to say “Spring Cleaning” but that would imply that I am either really early or really late, so I have decided to stick with “Autumn Cleaning” for now! Same concept either way!Feet

I love this time of year, and yesterday Continue reading

Being Open!

Hello! Happy Friday to you πŸ™‚ This week I have been working on an idea that I had last weekend; my very first shawl / poncho / wrap design! (I haven’t finalised the details yet) My initial design has lead me to learning and pretty much falling in love with a new area of crochet….Open Work! Maybe it’s because of my construction background, but I love the grid format of open work. Throw in a design and I love it even more! Continue reading

#SmileforSeptember πŸ™‚ A triple whammy today! It’s drawing near the end of the month, and I am very happy with the results of my little experiment πŸ™‚ I now have a folder on my desktop (almost) filled with images that capture and represent every day of this month, and when I look at them I am transported back to Continue reading

Pressing Pause

Hey! Happy Monday to you πŸ™‚ Today I want to write a little about taking time out to step back from everything. Writing from personal experience at the moment, I am beginning to understand how important just pausing and taking stock is, but yet how difficult it can be. Sometimes when we want Continue reading
