Hello 2013!

Welcome to a brand new year!

Thinking back on 2012, I would say the biggest highlight was our trip to Chile last February, and then the addition of a new great niece and great nephew for hubby.
This year we anticipate our trip to Belize in March and our youngest daughter graduating from university later in the year. 

This year as well, I have decided to join a group of artists doing an Art Journal Calendar challenge under the mentorship of  Kate Crane.
My hand is recovering really well but I had an unfortunate run in with some medication that slowed things down somewhat, so I was really happy to get this done yesterday, just in time!!

Feels good to be doing something creative again even if I can't quite manage a rotary cutter yet.

I am fast approaching 5000 hits here on my humble little blog so I will be back later this week with a give away, stay tuned!


  1. Love the journal idea! All the best in 2013 to you and yours.
