Happy New Year!!

Hi Everyone,

I haven't had much time for crafting or blogging over the last few weeks, what with Christmas and all kinds of other stuff I won't bother you with - but I'm SO looking forward to geting back into my craft room over the weekend and starting 2017 as I mean to go on.

With this in mind, I had a massive tidy-up on Boxing Day, so my creative space would be all ready to go (it was getting really out of hand!). Here is my newly-tidied desk ...


You can see my completed Life Book, which I had just finished binding. I just want to make a few notes in it and add a title to the front, then I will do a separate post with a little flip-through just for the record. On the left there is a very stylish desk tidy, handmade for me by my Beloved for Christmas <3

I've totally LOVED Life Book 2016 - it's been a huge experience and I've learned such a lot from it. If you are wondering whether to go for it or not, I would throughly recommend it, whatever your current skill level and experience. However, there are other mixed media classes out there which I wanted to try and I don't have time to do everything I would like to, so I've decided to try something different this year ... "Wanderlust"! It starts in a couple of days and I can't wait!!

This year has lots of creative treats in store for me to look forward to - a scrapping retreat with Go Go Getaway in March, the Mixology mixed media workshop in April, as well as some Stampin' Up! workshops and monthly crafting sessions with some of my lovely creative friends. Plus I just found all this amazing stuff in my workroom which I forgot I had ..... :o)

Wishing all my artyfarty friends near and far a very happy and creative 2017!!!

Love from Annie xxx

Oh my goodness - this looks wonderful. I'm just home from 10 days interstate and my s/crap room looks like a kindergarten class got let loose in there. I'm giving myself a day to unpack and wash and then my room will look like this. Thanks for the kick in the pants!! And Happy New Year.
