I survived!

May I just say moving ten days before Christmas is not advisable! I can’t disclose the amount of comfort food and alcohol needed to survive but we did manage to pull it off without major dramas apart from the removalist damaging a fair bit of our stuff.  I am still recovering and like alot of you, finding it really hard to switch back into work mode but I will get there.....eventually.  I wasn’t sad to leave 2011 behind, although so many good things happened it was a really hard year and I have welcomed 2012 with open arms. 
So what’s in store for 2012 you ask?.....Where do I start!!!

Well I will start with buying a house to renovate.  Being a mum of my two monkeys and running my own business, I figured I had so much time on my hands!  For hubby and I this is house number five and Reno number three. I know crazy! and what makes it even worse is we haven’t done a Reno since we have had the kids, only built.  Now I can hear you all laughing at me! That’s ok go ahead, I’m laughing at myself too.  It will be worth it in the end; we just have to make it out the other side on one piece.  I have scored a much bigger work space in this house and it will be one of the first modifications we do (insert happy dance) to give me even more space.  There is an element of renovating that makes it so much more exciting than building and I cant wait to start but I'm not looking forward to living in while we do it :(

Here are some pics of my new work studio, pretty crappy photos taken late at night and I have only just finished unpacking but you get the idea.  If only you could see the end result pictured in my head.  May I add, I have drawn alot of inspiration from pinterest so now I can justify my pinterest time to hubby as research. Perfect!

I cant wait to get rid of the mint green carpet, apple green walls and adorable curtains!

Then we have my fabulous new range that arrived in December.  I have been so busy, I have barely had a chance to have a good stitch with it yet but I can’t wait to get stuck into it.  There will be lots of new kits available in the coming months along with new pre-cut bundles, projects and some great promos in the works too!  I am also looking at doing a few markets stretching from Brisbane to Newcastle so I can finally get a chance to get out there and meet lots of people I feel I know so well online but have never met.  I’m getting excited just writing about it!

HELLO 2012!!! What a cracker of a year you are going to be J

Until next time...
