Goodbye 2008, hello 2009!

I'm spending today packing as we are going up to visit my family for New Year this year. We are both looking forward to it as we haven't spent a new year with my parents yet. I know even after 6 years! :o/
I wont be near a computer until we get back so I thought it would be an appropriate time to leave a New Year's Eve Post.

Just before Christmas we sat down and decided I needed some new, up to date, postcards/flyers for bagladee. After many an hour of trying to decided what we wanted to portray, this is what we came up with. I chose the soft feminine pinks and I love the flowing lines of the image. A bit like me really, Strong and bold but with a soft, girly, feminine side ;)

And this is how they turned out, on the reverse there are some images of the items I make and a little bit of info about my website, etsy shop and blog (of course!!).

I love them, thank you so much to my lovely other half :) big hugs.
I have quite a few New Year Resolutions this year to tick off my list so here goes:
1. Sign up for more Craft Fairs (hopefully the Clothes Show in December 09, too)
2. Be more organised!!!!! A must!!
3. Be less stressed.
4. Spend more time with friends and family.
5. Enjoy the moment rather than being too busy thinking about what I have to do next.
Pretty simple I think......she says!! Ask me in a couple of months time how its all going ;) ha ha
And last of all I just want to say that 2008 was a bit of a stressful year but things definitely got better towards the end. I have a strong network of people around me in friends and family, but I discovered this year that I also have a strong network of people through my blog too. You are truly the friends that I am yet to meet, thank you so much for sitting down and taking the time to read all I write. I know that at times I do nothing but ramble so thanks for hanging in there and being patient ;) I hope its been entertaining as I'm not sure about there being any informative content :) and I look forward to seeing you all in 2009. Lets see what the New Year has in store for us?
