New Year is here ~

2008 here we come ~ I was saying to my son the other day how much I like the number 2008 - it looks so round and curvy and calm ~ yep just like how it looks haha, and I am more than ready to be going into this new year. The last year in review was a bit of a rocky one at times, but also a great one for renewing the importance of family and friend time, especially getting together with my new scrapping galfriends ~ their love and support, and the sharing of their own lives with me has really touched my heart in a deep and wonderful way this year, and I hope to continue this trend over the coming year. I have to get some pictures developed so I can post a few things myself ~ some special moments and fun times, and hopefully I have a better working computer coming to me from my sister in BC soon, so I can do alot more at home than I can right now.

I have been reading about people making new year's resolutions ~ in magazines and on blogs ~ and it has inspired a project idea that I can't wait to get started on. I am going to make some resolutions / goals for this year ~ attainable ones ~ and then I am going to kinda track and journal how I am doing throughout the year. At the end of the year I should have an inspirational album for myself, to help with the blessed feeling I have trully come to feel in the past while.

Went out with my friend Dawn for coffee last night, I have to say that these little escapes from the daily routine have been so wonderful to me. I like specialty coffees in the first place, but to be able to share them with a friend and sit and just chat back and forth about life and what is in it, have been inspirational to me, and part of my wanting to document more of life. I suck at journaling pages, so I am looking forward to the challenge of overcoming this particular obsticle and having a great year.

Have a couple crop/retreat weekends coming up in the first couple months of this year ~ I am so excited to be getting ready for these, figure I have learned alot more about organizing and packing up supplies in the last months of cropping haha, so I hope to get alot more accomplished and so so so looking forward to the companionship of my friends for those weekends.

I hope to keep in touch more with some of my far away friends and family this year, as well as maybe meet a few this year ~ I have to say how much I am thankful to this art that we share that brings us all together.

Alrightly then ready to bust into this new year!
hugs
