(Taken from the TV)
Hope you had a great Christmas, we did and I'm feeling really optimistic and excited about starting a new creative year afresh. I can't wait to be even more adventurous in my creative endeavours and taking you along with me for the ride. I've got myself signed up to a few free (yay!) online courses and am itching to get started on them in the next few days. I do like doing my own crafts but I also like being given prompts to 'jumpstart' my own ideas ( ♥ Pinterest!)
I got a few books for Christmas (admitedly, I chose them on my Amazon wishlist) and they are so me! I practically squealed when I was reading this first one:
The Art of iPhonegraphy by Stephanie C Roberts (£9.99, Waterstones)
As regular blog readers will know, I love photography and this book is packed with creative themes for subjects to take with lots of tips and suggestions for apps for the iPhone.
The second book I have got to show you is this:
Print Workshop by Christine Schmidt
(Amazon £8.84 at time of writing)
I haven't had chance to go through this book yet but it looks to have some great printing projects (image transfer, tshirt printing ideas..) that I can get started on in the New Year.
The last book isn't a craft/art/photography book!!.. but I love it! It came recommended by the ever cheerful, Yorkshire based, colourful crochet blogger, Lucy from Attic 24 and its about "How to cope with the mental and emotional challenge of keeping a home"
'Housework Blues A Survival Guide' by Danielle Raine
I SO needed this! And my husband has said it was the best £7.99 he's ever spent, lol. It's even getting me, an eternal couch potato, happily reaching out for the vacuum cleaner and tackling my ironing mountain. It's part of the reason I haven't been online recently, I've been attending to housework! Gasp! Even I'm amazed at the change its already done to me - for the better!

I would like to wish
A VERY HAPPY NEW YEAR
TO ALL MY READERS
TO ALL MY READERS
See you next year,
