New for this week ...

Just some small things, but its beading nonetheless :) My resolution of doing some sort of beading every week has started off well :)

This one sold within a few hours of being put on Etsy, which I was so surprised with.

New Year tidings to you all

Well here we are at another New Year ... they seem to be going by faster and faster these days.

We leave behind a year that has been fraught with
~ many ups and downs ~

Stock crashes

~ A world in turmoil ~

Egyptian uprising

~ Natural disasters that made us cry ~

Tsunami hits Japan

Christchurch Quake

Cyclone Yasi (Category 5) hits Far North Queensland

 ~ and miracles that have blessed our hearts ~

2 week old baby rescued ~ Turkish Quake

 Personally 2011 was stressful to say the least,
an emotional roller-coaster.
It also wasn't a very productive year as far as jewellery making goes ...
its amazing how "life in general" just got in the way.
The last few months of the year, however, were great,
and have given me hope that everything has righted itself
and we can look ahead to a wonderful year.

I'm grateful for the love and support of my wonderful husband ~ my best friend,
and my gorgeous children, who even though they made life
interesting throughout the year, are the absolute light of my life.

I wish you all a happy and safe New Year,
may you be blessed with lots of love.
