A whole New Year

So 2012 is upon us...I cannot help but wonder what it will bring with it.
Check out this gorgeous Daily Truth ...A little Birdy told me email I received today from The Brave Girls Club today....

....Makes you think doesn't it!

 If you like this as much as I do then pop over to  Brave Girls .com and sign up to receive their Daily Truths letters direct to your inbox each day.

While on the subject of the year ahead check out my latest art work, which is a work in progress

 While I was tyring to decide on what challenge I was going to put onto the NZ Paper chase blog I was given two great ideas from a couple of the ladies who take part in the challenges. Tanya Watson suggested a recipe challenge and Angela Knight suggested a Mini Book Challenge. Both great ideas...thanks ladies. I got to thinking and was inspired to create this mini book album cover and to use a recipe on the cover, only my recipe is for a "Happy Year", instead of a tasty treat!

I found a clothing tag, saved amongst my ever growing 'could be useful one day' stash and decided it would make a perfect title for my album...Life Space, pretty much sums up what my album is going to be about.

 I hope by the time I get to the end of this year my Life Space album is going to be full of happy positive beautiful memories with more ups than downs and more triumph's than tragedy's. I also hope that YOUR year will be the same :-)

As I was saying some where near the beginning of this post.... this project began as my example for the latest challenge over at NZ Paper Chase. Check it out HERE...and feel free to join in. We'd love to see what you do! And please do join up to our Face Book page.

Here is my finished latest painting

This one is a hit with all the males who have seen it. I must say that I did not really enjoy painting a truck and it will be a one off for sure! Uncle David is now the owner of this one. Next project on thepainting scene is going to be a fisherman- for my Uncle Graeme who is wanting me to paint him something. Really need to get onto this one!

Finished at last- I think

At last I think I have pretty much finished this painting for my uncle. Do hope he likes it.
