It's hard to believe how much life changes as the years go by.  Two years ago when I wrote my last blog post I was married, living a few doors from my folks and life was ticking along.  A week after that post my life turned upside down and I was a single mum struggling to cope with all manner of strange things going on!

I can now say, I'm happily divorced and believe me it was the best thing to happen for my own sanity and am starting to pick up the pieces of my life and move forward. 2016 has to be my year, I've said it too many times in the past, it has to be true sometime!

So I'm still teaching although now in a completely different year group, living a ten minute walk from my folks, own my own home (with a lovely big mortgage to go with it) but I can honestly say I'm happier. It's been a fair old trek and crafting hasn't even appeared on the horizon, however over this Xmas break I have actually started some scrapping again and hope to make sure that I build it into my daily routine somewhere, even if it's only to jot onto a journalling card. My aim this year is to finish my journal your Christmas, which has really turned into 'journal your Christmas elves' and begin my project life album so the girls and I build our new memories together and enjoy life together.

I'll add some pics in the morning of my new projects and hopefully a few more along the way too!

As tomorrow is New Years Eve, happy new year to you all!
