Christmas has come and gone and here we are - the start of a new year.
What a year it has been.
There's been many happenings in blogland that I haven't been able to keep track of, but I have been very mindful of all the creativity blossoming at the hands of many inspirational lovely souls.
In 2014 I enrolled in a one year course to study for a teacher's aide qualification.
Many hours have been spent at the computer researching and putting together various assessments. I can honestly say I am SO THANKFUL for Google and all the lovely people who so willingly share their tips and encouragements. Not much action for my sewing machine or needle and thread for 2014!
After all the research and study, the assessments, time getting to know many wonderful students and more than 120 hours of work placement, my course certificate should arrive in the mail in the next few weeks and the new year will unfold....
After unsuccessful attempts in regularly following blogs, and writing my own posts I am hoping that this year I can breathe out and catch up a little bit. This might be a little easier after the recent discovery of a Blogger app for smartphones.
With technology so easily at our fingertips I have been reminded this year of the need for much valuable time with family and time for connections.....hence not being online so much. This lovely blog often keeps me inspired and my thoughts where they need to be. Read this post - it is a real blessing.
Our family started 2014 with an overnight stay in Goulburn on our way to the coast for our camping holiday.
Often we drive right through this town, but it was great to stop and see the sights together, including this rather large woolly fellow, The Big Merino.
Some more painting was done outside on the verandah ceilings to freshen it up......but it's still an ongoing project. No photos of that though......white ceilings aren't very exciting.
I had found this 'citrus' fabric in the last couple of years and finally made it up during spring in 2014. I love the happy print and the difference it has made......but might have to change the cushions :)
Enjoy the fresh start a new year brings and hope it is filled with many creative moments.
