From 2011 to 2012

Hello to my Family and Friends,
What a year 2011 has been with many ups and downs, Happiness and sadness. 
I've met, made and kept some wonderful friends through blogging and I appreciate you all!

My Mum was here for a few months getting her health back into gear!
The past few weeks have been very hectic here with gift making and presents to buy and give.
My Dad falling and breaking a few ribs the week leading up to Christmas then this week we lost a friend to a massive heart attack.  He was only 47 years old without any medical condition or complaints of pain. 
I'm feeling very emotional at the moment because myself, family and friends are very close to that age and he was such a caring, genuine, family orientated bloke! My sympathy goes out to Kellie and their four children.
Rest in Peace Adam

Roll on 2012!
My oldest son is turning 21 years old.
We are having a small party on 21.1.2012
He says 'small party' Yeah right-He's list has blown out to 120 guests.

I'm also the lucky winner of Vikki's gorgeous vintage stocking.

I wish all my friends love, happiness, health, fun filled, creative year in 2012
Big hugs,

Happy New Year to you and your family, Anna...I hope 2012 brings you many, many blessings.

I'm so sorry to hear of your dear friend's passing. What a shock it must have been and my thoughts lie with his family also. 47 is SO young and, yes, it certainly makes us take a look at our own mortality. (((Hugs)))

I hope your Dad is doing better now.

Love and hugs,
Serena xo

Anna - like me this year has been a tough one and losing yet another friend though not quite as close it doesn't make it any easier.
Hope your dad is recovering now hope he will be there for your son's "small party"!!!
Dont get too stressed as the year is but young!
Wishing you a year full of much inspirational creativity and a chance of fulfil your dreams!
