New beginnings ....
Happy New Year to you!!! I'm sure we must have missed out a few months in 2007, it went so quickly. One of my personal highlights last year was to start this blog. Although the time seems to have whizzed past - it is this blog, this space that has allowed me to record its moments, memories and has given me the chance to see things with fresh eyes, savour the moment and appreciate the detail, however small, of things around me. I have learnt to notice the changing seasons and their effects on me, to step back and record the little things that make me smile. I have learnt that even the mundane can surprise you and I have learnt how important it is to have a camera with you at all times!
My blogging diary has afforded me the luxury of cherishing time with my family and to note just how lucky I am. It has, in short, transformed me from a glass half empty kind of girl to a happier, more fulfilled person. It has allowed me to share my crafting news, to ogle mouth opened at the talent of bloggers and has given me the confidence I needed to carry on with things that had been on the back burner for far too long. In many ways, the writing of this blog would I thought have been enough when I took those first tentative steps at the beginning of last year. But I was wrong, what has made this blogging year so special has been the warmth, support, generosity, sheer kindness, humour of all you fellow bloggers. Back in March I wanted just to be able to join in the conversation a little. What I did not expect and had no idea was coming, was the way in which I have been welcomed in, thank you!
Wishing you all good things in the year ahead and looking forward to reading all about them!
