Reading,Crafting and some sad news

Hello everyone.
                                  Wishing you a Happy New Year!

I have some sad news to share. My Grandma passed away over Christmas. It was quite sudden and she will be sadly missed,we are remembering her and her life and the happiness she brought us. xxx

I  am looking towards 2012. As probably everyone is,thinking about what I would like in my life and how I can make changes and looking at the things I am most thankful for.

I have been writing a to do list, do you do that? Things you want to experience or create in your world? and a little about how to go about it?  I love looking back over the lists I have made over the years, seeing what I have ticked off! and looking at how they came into my world! Its quite fun and I love doing it every year.
photos found on Pinterest.

One goal I have is to create a journal. I do have a small diary that I write in but I love the look of scrapbooking and I do enjoy been creative! but not scrapbooking just to hold photos,as I am not really into that. It would be more of a life journal or things that are happening that mean a lot.

I have gathered some inspiration for how I want the journal to look.

So I have been cutting up the Christmas cards! taking little phrases that can be used again,snowflakes and card toppers etc. I can't wait to put them to good use!

Another thing I am really interested in at the moment is The Law Of Attraction you have prob heard of The Secret?

 I have found this wonderful channel on you tube that is very similar to it. A lady called Esther Hicks. They take the law of attraction principle a lot futher and I have watched some amazing videos by them.Well worth a look if you are interested in that sort of subject!

I am currently readingImage Detail 
'Dreams can come true - it could happen to you...For the past two years, Evie Taylor has lived an invisible existence in London, a city she hoped would bring sparkle to her life. But all that is about to change. For winter has brought a flurry of snow and unexpected possibilities. Hidden away in the basement of Hardy's - once London's most elegant department store - Evie manages the stockroom of a shop whose glory days have long since passed. When Evie overhears that Hardy's is at risk of being sold, she secretly hatches a plan. If she can reverse the store's fortunes by December 26th - three weeks away - and transform it into a magical destination once again, she might just be able to save it. But she's going to need every ounce of talent and determination she has. In fact, she's going to need a miracle. '

Its a light hearted read,perfect for this time of year.

Hope you are all well and see you again soon ;) xxx

Hi Prisclla I wish you too a wonderful New Year and that your dreams may come true.

How sad news about your grandma. Is it the grandma for who you baked that wonderful cake? it must be a sad time for you know. I will keep you all in my thoughts.

I don't know that book that you are reading now, so I wrote down the title. I'm going to post tomorrow my list of books that i read in 2011 just as I did with my stitching projects.
