Happy New Year

Hi everyone.   Wow, I cannot believe we are on the verge of another decade!!  It only seems like yesterday we were celebrating the millenium and literally weeks later I found out I was pregnant for the very first time with Emily!!!  She will be ten next year.  The time has flown by and since then we have been joined by Ethan!!  I'm a little older now too....... though not wiser me thinks LOL.  I discovered crafting during this last decade and finally got round to setting up my own blog in October, big thanks to my SIL, Crafting Joanne for inspiring me to pull me finger out!

I've met lots of lovely fellow crafters here on me blog and have been so taken aback by all the lovely comments and support you have all given me.  I'm well on the way to making some great friendships and who knows, maybe I'll get to meet a few of you in person in 2010.

I'm really excited about this next year and all the craft challenges I could enter LOL, and if I could make it onto just one DT I'd be chuffed to bits!!!  I'm looking forward to making many more friends.  I've been a bad blogger lately due to ongoing health issues, but these will hopefully be resolved in the New Year and I can get back to blog hopping.  There are many of you that warned me how addictive this is - and you were absolutely right LOL! - I Love It!!!!

So Happy New Year everyone and here's to a fantastic 2010!!

Ooooh, nearly forgot!!  I've agreed my nine year old can start her own blog!!  Emily loves cardmaking and anything crafty really and "really, really,really, realllyyyyy!" (LOL!) wants to have a go at some of the competitions!  So watch this space as we've made a start on it today!

More Hugs

Hey Mel, thanks so much for the comment on my blog and the well wishes for the New Year. I read your post today and you're finding out something that us older gals already knew, time passes so quickly. Enjoy every minute with your kids, they grow up way too fast.

I think it is great that your daughter wants to blog.......Can't wait to see what she does.

And, I would love to meet up with you sometime, that would be fantastic, but, until then, your a great gal, and have done a great job with your blog, and it shows that you are loving blogging.

Happy healthy New Year to you and your familiy. Looking forward to visiting your blog in 2010!!

I can't wait to see Emily's blog! I'm not going to mention it to Eleisha (she's 9 too) as she will be wanting to do one too - hehehe. She was saying she might join the forum tonight as she has finished her CD tag - she's looking for the next challenge already! Oh, and Mark had suggested burning edges to distress them, but after your tale.... perhaps not rofl. I value my eyebrows too much :0)

Happy New Year Mel - hope you post a link to Emily's blog when it's all up and running x
