Happy New Year!

I hope you all made it into 2013 safely.  I sincerely wish you all the best in your year.  I wish you health, happiness and all your dreams come true.

This time of year for me is difficult, I fight the ole man depression, which I have recently come to terms with and although we live together I wont be a slave to him.  It’s a beginning of a new chapter in my life.  I am so excited, I am scared and most of all I have the nagging feeling whatever comes this year will I be good enough to do it?..  I want to get in to the habit of saying what did I do today to make myself proud?  I think that is a positive thing for me, to take each day. So what do I want for this year?  I want to trust more in people.  I have locked myself up long enough, not every person is fake, or a liar, or a user. I just have to find the nice people.  I want to re establish my faith and maybe find a church with nice people. I would like to socialise more and really get to know people.  I want to become more creative and join in the online fun more…

Farewell 2012 you wasn't a bad year but 2013 is going to be a much better year… *insert dramatic trumpet music*

Right now that is off my chest and thank you guys for listening here is what I am proud of today..  Today I made a birthday card for my ex father in law.  I used Jim on the hunt from Digi Stamp Boutique.  Brian likes to shoot pigeons, I have no clue why, seen as they are a tad suicidal here in Clacton lol.. So I thought Jim would be perfect.  You cant see it in the picture but I used greens and beiges here ..  I think I might embark on a photography course this year too lol..


I hope you like Happy New Year to you all xx

What did you do today that made you proud?


  1. Super cute image! One to bring a smile to everyone's face. LOve your colours and LOve your shading...
    It's all JUst GORgeous.

  2. Cute card for the hunter in your life hehe.

    Sounds like a good plan to help keep depression away. Imprisoning yourself is always a mistake as I have well learned. Even though we are more vulnerable to bad things when we open up, we are also more vulnerable to amazing wonderful things. Happy New Year evil one!
