A new day

Hi Girls,

First and foremost thanks for your kind words and encouragement xxx

I'm getting itchy hands again and am ready to start restoring smoke damaged items and creating in general...Which hubby and I are both excited about, he's really good with wood

I just thought I would share a pic of my beloved baby Lily.... taken christmas day. She was so excited, I was up at 4am getting things ready I couldnt wait! Her 1st christmas it was so special...her lit up face and laugh will be burnt into my memory and carved into my heart forever

I have been working on business cards and the website for our new business Pumpkernickle Kids.. and I have also been designing a few things.. so I will put them up once happy with them.

We have been in the process of SLOWLY painting our house...time to refresh and get rid of dark colours... I actually get depressed by them...(literally)

Oh I forgot - almost.... I got this WONDERFUL painting by Libby Primmer recently.. well Im waiting for it I got it from ebay..It's titled "a New Day" I thought it quite fitting... I'm not really one for abstract (although a few of my artist friends are very talented and i love their work I'm quite particular) but I fell for this and had to have it.

I have also been designing again and will have new creations up soon.

Til I next post have a fantabulous day!!!

hugs to you all

The above quote was very powerful during my grieving
