Long Time ... No Chat!

Hello ... do you remember me? I'm hoping someone is still reading my blog, and I know, I'm so sorry I've been missing for so very long.  I decided to take some time out and away from the computer when I shut the shop down, but I'm glad to say .. batteries are recharged, and I'm back.

Last year was certainly busy for us - we pretty much have had workmen and builders in our home since September. Although I'm glad to say they've all gone now, and its wonderful to have my life back.  That does mean I've an awful lot of cleaning and clearing to do ... but hey, I'm happy with that. 

I have big plans this year, but rather than say too much and tempt fate, I'm just going to go with the flow and let the year play out as it will.  Last year I did my own little version of project life - and although, I've just got a few pages to finish up, I really enjoyed doing it. So much so, that I decided this year, I'd do the full and proper 12 x 12 version ... so with that in mind, let me show you my title page.  I am so far, up to date ... shocking, I know.  We also decided on having words to live by this year ... a bit like "one little word" ... but we couldn't decide on just one, so we came up with a few ; Renew, Laugh, Dream and Love.

I've also been scrapping a lot more recently, and almost found again, why I fell in love with scrapbooking in the first place. I'm much more relaxed about it these days and I think that's why I enjoy the process so much more.

Also, with all the work we've been doing, I've had to make the choice to declutter - I still have a lot of Mum & Dads things in our home, and they've been moved around through the work - but I've made the decision to start sorting it out.  I think that's even made me feel happier and lighter.

Ok, that's it from me for now, it's just a dip my toe back in the water post, so to speak.  And fingers crossed I'll be more regular with my blogging.
