Wow! This year has just flown by!
I can hardly believe that 2011 is just around the corner. It’s been a bumpy ride this past year with lots of ups and downs. I didn’t manage any of my resolutions for last year (as much as I tried). But for now it’s time to focus on the future and not worry about the past.
Here are some of my top things that happened in 2010 (in no particular order):
- Starting this blog in September
- Turning my hobby into a business in March
- Graduating from my Undergrad in April
- Graduating from my Postgrad in October
- Turning 25
- Building furniture of my own design for the first time
- Seeing my cousin get married
And here are some of my resolutions for the new year:
- To achieve my Creative Goals
- To travel to Michigan to see my cousin get married (a different cousin than before) in the Northern Summer
- To find a little place of my own
- And to learn to give myself a break
I hope your new year’s celebrations are safe and happy.
See you next year all refreshed from my week off.

Yep. That’s me. 25 today.
I had big plans of writing the 25 things I wanted to accomplish at 25, but I just couldn’t think of that many.
I had a good day with a lovely lunch and great company. We went to Grill’d in Degraves St and sat in the sunshine! We did some window shopping and found my dream gift (unfortunately it was out of the budget range). And decided to look again in the post Christmas sales for something else I might like.
I had dinner with some of my family and had my Dad’s famous chocolate mousse cake for desert.
All in all it was a good day.
I even came up with an idea for the blog in the new year, but for now it’s a secret so shhh!
I hope my 25th year can be the most fantastic one yet. But for now it’s time to focus on Christmas…

I just wanted to let all of you lovely readers know that the posting on this blog may be sporadic over the next couple of weeks.
It is coming to the end of the year as I’m sure you are all aware, and for me that means family gatherings, my birthday, christmas, new year and a much needed break.
I hope to be back in full swing in the first week of January, but I will try not to make any promises as I really want to make 2011 fantastic for the blog and really don’t want to rush it.
I’m sure I’m giving you too much of an explanation, but that’s just me :)
I will at least have two posts for you (as well as the giveaway winner announcement on Tuesday the 21st!) per week, so do check in if you can.
Have a happy and safe holiday season! I hope things are just the way you like them to be.
Thank you so very much for your support in 2010, without you I would never have got this far.

With just one week until the celebrations start happening for my family I thought I’d share with you some of what I made last Christmas (2009)…
I have 2 nieces and 2 nephews and this is what I made for them:
For my brother I made an iPhone case, It was the first one I had ever made:
And for my 13 year old cousin I made her this from vintage fabric for her camera:
I made a whole heap of things last year, this year I am taking a different track but I can’t tell you until after the day incase someone reads it that shouldn’t know yet!
Are you doing a handmade Christmas this year? Making or buying? I’d love to know. Tell me in the comments!
