Hello 2015

Hello 2015! I must admit I'm really pleased to see the back of 2014, it was a year filled with ups and downs. Returning to work after 8 years of being a stay at home mum was a big shock and I totally underestimated how tiring that would be. That lead to a reasonable lack of creativity and the one thing I know about myself is that when I stop making, I'm not that happy. I am a maker, I need to make.

It doesn't have to be big makes, making or creating anything seems to fill my "happy" tank, with that in mind I've decided to join in with Clare from Green Valley Crafts and her 52 project. I'm hoping that it will see me return to this space more regularly.

I'm really looking forward to 2015 and also those Blackberries in the second photo ripening!


  1. So glad you're joining in Louana! xo

  2. Hooray! I feel just the same way. Beautiful strawflowers- are they in your garden? X

  3. Yay for 2014 being behind us! It was one I'd like to move on from too! And I agree, if I'm not making, I'm not happy either. Great to have you join in with the 52 makes project! And those blackberries....drool!

  4. I see making as therapy too - it's like a tangible record that I have achieved something x

  5. needs must and making is a must! I hope you have more time to enjoy it and get stuck into making stuff this year xx
