And a New Year has begun
I hope that you all had a fabulous Christmas and are enjoying the New Year.
I have just returned home from a family holiday cruising around New Zealand. We all had a fabulous time. The usual too much to eat but, very relaxing. It is a time that I can switch off from work and the hectic life I lead just to regenerate ready for a huge year ahead.
Every year I think I just cant fit anything else into my schedule but alas there is always room for something more.
I always kept 2 bucket lists. One for my business and one for my personal life.
2012 saw me cross off everything I had ever hoped for with my Patchwork with Busyfingers business. It was a very weird feeling I must admit.
However, shortly after crossing off the final dream on my list the opportunity came my way to become the disributor for Riley Blake Designs in Australia and the weird feeling disappeared and a whole new bucket list was created. YEAH!!!
Don't you just love BUCKET LISTS
I would like to take a minute to reflect on the year just gone before I tell you about the exciting year ahead.
I feel very blessed to have had so many opportunities come my way.
