Thursday, December 31


it's the last day of 2009. Where has the year gone? So much has happened this year, some happy memories, some sad, some that make me laugh still, others that bring a tear to my eye but overall it was a good year.

Now on to 2010. I haven't made any new year resolutions as I know I can't keep them. So for 2010 I have taken an idea from Elise who makes a list of things that she wants to do before her next birthday comes around, so I have created a list of 26 things I would like to do before the end of 2010.

I have included my list in my side bar and each time I complete one I will date it and mark it off. I also have a hard copy stuck up on the wall in front of my desk to help keep me on track.

Also for 2010 (which Jason says he will believe it when he sees it and probably all you scrap-bookers out there will say the same thing) I am not allowed to buy any new scrap booking supplies until 2011. Apart from adhesive, ink cart's and paper for printing my photos onto I am not buying anything new.

The reason for this you ask? See my last post about recycling stuff and having too much Stuff.
I know people out there will say you can't have to much stuff but I do. I have stuff I don't even remember when I purchased, which is not good. So until 2010 I will not be buying anything new.

I finally Finished My Summer Cleaning. The house looks now like some one lives in it full time and cares about the place. Jason glad as it has been over a week since we have been able to walk in the front door with out having to step over boxes and tables. I just about have my new scrap booking corner set up with everything I need in reach and easy to access which will help me use my stuff up next year.

Two things before I sign off for 2009. Our beautiful Darling River Finally has water back in it and flowing water (one metre so far) as well. Shame the water hadn't come from local rains but it is still here. (For those of you who don't know you could have walked across the river in many places before this flow came down in the early hours of the morning)

And lastly I have chosen one little word for 2010. It's something that I found a few years ago about choosing one little word and using it to help you through the year. This year my word was Halcyon (which means to relax and take things slow). This year I have chose "BE". Why Be? It can mean so many things, Be Happy, Be patient, Be strong, Be sad, Be content and the list goes on. So throughout 2010 you will see my word appear ever now and then in my works.

That's it for me for 2009. I am going away with Jason for nearly the whole of January so will blog when I return home.

I Hope everyone has an enjoyable
See you all in 2010
