Getting Motivated .....

At last I have stirred myself after being completely lethargic for most of last year - I have made 40+ simple cards to sell for charity funds for the local hospital where I have had many stays and treatments, and still I'm a "regular" in several departments ....
 most of these cards are small fabric panels layered onto good quality card...
When I was searching through old stash from card making days years ago I came upon a watercolour pencil painting, unfinished on the left side, so I used a copy for a new blog header. It has inspired me to draw a few doodle flowers for the next batch of cards, (always hoping and assuming that the first lot will sell!).

New Year 2013

Daybreak, and at last the sun was breaking through as the moon slipped away ....
And hooray!  I felt well, as I woke, for the first time in many weeks.
A new year, time for resolutions, simple so that I won't break them ...
smile each morning,
look for something beautiful to photograph each day,
(the moon this morning!)
enjoy my lovely family and friends,
and keep adding the patches and taking the tablets that keep me going!
Many thanks for your support to all those friends,
and a very
Happy and Healthy New Year to all,  Connie, x
