Last January I chose essential as my One Little Word. The idea was to focus on what was essential to how I want to live my life, what I really want and need, and where possible to eliminate those things that aren't essential. I wrote the word on my whiteboard at work and it actually did help me there - that and a couple of massive rearranging and chucking-out sessions! My still-stuffed cupboards at home tell me I still have a long way to go with identifying the essentials.

What did happen was that this year I spent a lot of time realising just how lucky I am, and we are. I caught myself enjoying the moment, treasuring the simple events of the everyday.

I'm not sure what my word for 2011 will be, it hasn't chosen me yet - maybe it's not
essential to have a new word just yet. What I do know is that these two are my essentials - now and always.

Christmas Cards

This year's card are in the mail. I always like to have at least two designs, although who gets which is kinda random.
Elements in the Joy card are by Kristin Aagard from her Down Under kit

Ski Biscuit

Three in a row! More design goodness from Cathy Z.

This looked so much fun when Finn did it last summer, maybe I'll give it a try.

Cockle Creek - more Cathy inspiration

A second week of inspiration from Cathy Zielske's Make a Page Monday. I've altered the template from two 8 1/2 x 11 pages to one 12x12.

Edited 4/3/11 to correct typo in layout.

Year in Review - January 2009

Catching up

There's no way I can catch up on everything between July and now. I covered our trip mostly on on Finn's Blog and I've been plugging away at the Project 365 Blog (only 109 days behind). Suffice to say it was a great year and one we'll always remember. I've started the pages for the 2009 Year in Review book that I'll get printed at Arts Cow and I'll post them as I get them finished.
