I DID get my scraproom though so finally here are some photos to share... ain't my DH just a darlin'? It's all in the way you hold your tongue you know ;) hehehehe You can bet I owe him BIG time for doing this! hahahaha I have IKEA'd my house to within an inch of it's life now.
The only thing left to do is get the wire put up across the top of these shelves above my desk (although I suspect I might be pushing my luck with DH! LOL). It's another IKEA thingy (meant to be used for a curtain track) and has little clips... I am going to use it as a "clip-it up" to have all those bits and pieces sitting on the cupboards (in front of the coffee jars) hanging where I can see them... and actually USE them!
So while 2007 might not have lived up to all my expectations it has still been pretty good. Scrap wise I won a couple of cool comps and won a position on the Scrap World DT. I also had 3 LOs accepted for publication in SM... ummm I think the first 2 will be in Vol 9 No. 10. So I am pretty chuffed about all that. I have made heaps of online friends and enjoyed rubbing cyber (and real) shoulders with some of the most amazingly talented (and genereous) ladies you could ever hope to meet and call friends.
Life wise the kids have grown, I have too (LOL... another resolution there too! LOL)... DH started a new management position in his job and things in our life are good. I am certainly not complaining and I know our lives are blessed...BUT
... 2008 is going to be MY year... I am determined to get my act together and get back to being the organised person that I know can be and enjoy being. I am going to join the gym, lose weight and get fit, I am going spend more time playing with my kids... instead of yelling at them! These are my New Year's Resolutions and I am determined to achieve them. You just wait and see! LOL
We have much to be thankful for... we are safe, we are happy, we are healthy (well, that could do with some improvement as previously mentioned but you know what I mean! LOL), we are together.
I wish you and yours these simple blessings.
Here's to 2008... may it be YOUR year too.
