Well, can you believe that 2012 is over !?!.... How fast did that year go ?? Its been a good and bad year for us, our farming has been very hard the past few years, we were flooded in January of 2011, and lost most of our crops, therefore our income, then, due to the floods, were were unable to sow the next years crops either, so got very little income last year either... But, this year, finally things have turned around, we have some bumper crops, and some very good prices for our grain, so we are very happy, and very grateful.
We had some sickness in the family, but luckily nothing too serious, and everyone has recovered, out little dog, Molly was killed a few months ago, which was incredibly sad, but we have decided in the new year we are going to get another pup, probably another cavalier, cos Molly was just adorable..
Im my scrapbooking 'career' if you can call it that, i have been very fortunate, I have been the Manor House Design team coordinator for almost a year now, and am loving it ( a great big thanks to the owner of MHC, and my very dear friend, Nerrida Mitchell for the opportunity) I begin my Dusty Attic design team position tomorrow (yay), and have been very fortunate to have been offered alot of wonderful, scrapping opportunities throughout the year. I have met some amazing people, and one of the biggest scrappy highlights, was attending the Brisbane papercrafts expo, where I met alot of my cyber buddies, in real life, who have now become friends...
I want to thank you, all my followers, who keep coming back, and leaving me the most supportive, wonderful comments, I appreciate every one of you, and love reading every single comment. I don't get the time to post as often as I want to, and i dont get the time to visit as many blogs as id like to either sometimes, but, that is one of my new years resolutions, to visit and comment on more blogs :), along with losing 10 kgs, and exercising more, and being a more patient Mum to my 5 kids, and ..... hmmm, Ive got too many to list really :)
anyway, enough waffle, I want to post my favourite layouts, that Ive made throughout the year, some of my absolute favourites, i cant show you, cos they are out for publication, but, some of them i can, so here goes :)
So, thats them, its been a big year for me, in my scrapping life, and my 'other' life :) ... I am very grateful for all the wonderful opportunities i have been given this year, and cant wait to see what 2013 brings. HAPPY NEW YEAR to all... Thanks again for always being there for me, and for sharing this wonderful 'craft' with me.
