A Bright New Year

A brand new year hopefully filled with wonderful and 
exciting things. I awoke to a balmy 42 degrees, no snow and a
little sunshine peeking through the clouds.
I once again (big intentions, I hope to keep) have joined in  to do
the calendars with Kathryn Wheel. You can find her button on my side bar.
I was with friends over the holidays and the question of weather on a certain date in 
Sept. came up. I went to my calendar and could tell them what the weather was and what 
I did that day. They all got a laugh out of that.... so will try to keep the weather on it too.
My short way of journalism. I also hope to take a photo everyday of 2012. We shall 
see if all these grandiose ideas stick. I am also joining the Strathmore art workshops. The 
first one starts today and is by  Traci Bautista and shall take me out of my element. 
Shall be shaking things up a bit in 2012.  Heaven help me...
So Happy First Day of 2012 everybody and lets get get a
wiggle on and be creative! LOL

That's funny Sharon, but what a good idea! I would like to start a journal, but always seems after a week or so, interest is lost. Maybe your calendar is an easier way to go. Have fun with your goals for the year, and I look forward to see your progression!!

Monica said...

I'm sure you'll do it all, dear Sharon! You accomplished so much over the past year.... my hat off to you!
Hope 2012 brings you love, peace, health, joy, friendship and all that your heart desires!
Hugs and love,
Monica and Kim xoxox
