Hello 2017

Hello 2017

Happy New Year!


Once Christmas is over, I’m ready to put all traces away again, but with the arrival of friends to welcome the New Year in, we decided to let it be a little while longer.  Today, however, it was time to say Goodbye…






In no time at all, we’d cleared the baubles away though it took a while longer to untangle and sort out the lights, I’ll admit.


It’s also taken a while to chase all the small and extraordinarily light bits of black “paper” which seem to have found their way into every corner of the house.  One disadvantage of a largely open plan layout is that such things tend to float about a bit!


Still, the Flying Paper Wishes on New Year’s Eve were fun and we all had sweet wishes to make, of course.


It’s been a glorious day in our neck of the woods though that clear blue sky brought chilly temperatures.


As I came upstairs around 6pm, the moon and Venus were shining so brightly, I just had to get my camera.


So, our friends have all left, the Christmas decorations are all put away for another year and peace reigns once more.  this afternoon, I completed the last page in my 2017 Project Life album having finished my Christmas Journal on Friday.  Tomorrow, I plan to blitz the studio and clear the decks for the next project.

It’s almost time for another adventure

All wrapped up

All secrets are out
