It is time to say goodbye to 2011. It has been an incredible year. This was the year I started on a new journey, one of self discovery. I have been on one before but it was a different kind. In 2011, I found the 'courage' to get 'creative' again & to share it. We are on the eve of 2012 & I can say this. I am a mother, first & foremost. I am a partner. I am a daughter. I am a sister. I am a friend. In 2011, I learnt to say. I am a photographer. I capture life. my life. the life of my loved ones. of the world around me. It is my passion. I am learning to embrace it. I come here to share it. I am blessed that you come here to journey with me. Thankyou.
I am not sure where this journey will lead to next but I do have many creative dreams & ideas for 2012 and a long list of resolutions to make my way through. Some are big & some are small. I will share these with you over time. I have been thinking of words to represent 2012. I am finding the more I think about the year ahead, I want 2012 to be an 'inspired' year both to receive & to share and I want it to be a year for 'focus'...to focus on defining my style, to take away from the lessons I learnt in 2011 & focus more clearly on the direction in which I wish to go. so there you have it, 'inspired' & 'focus' will be my themes for 2012.
As you may know, I have been doing a 'Picture the Holidays' project & below is a catch up mosaic. I have 3 more photos to go & it will be complete. I have really enjoyed this project cause I love Christmas time..so I will definately be considering it next year.
1. wrapped with love, 2. you are getting sleepy, 3. attitude adjustment, 4. life is sweet, 5. enchantment, 6. this magic moment, 7. the day after, 8. a breath of fresh air, 9. through the looking glass
In keeping with my themes for 2012, I also really want to share one of the first projects I have signed up for in 2012. It is 'beyond layers' with kim klassen. Can't wait to receive some of Kim's awesome inspiration. Check it out, you should join in too. The more the merrier.
Lastly, Happy New Year! make it safely into 2012 & may many GREAT things come your way.
