New Year, Fresh start

At the beginning of the year I had all these plans for this blog.  I imagined regular themed posts, lots of scrapbooking and art and Project Life.  But all the best intentions in the world still didn't materialise what I wanted for this blog.

At the beginning of this year, I was still suffering from depression and anxiety, and to be honest, it has only the last few months I have felt really well in my self.  Changes in my work and working hours have helped tremendously.  I now only work four days a week giving me an extra day to spending time with my friend Sue and setting up L & S Decorative Arts.  It is a little venture in its infancy but we have some big plans for it in 2015.  Set work patterns starting in January will enable me to plan better my time.  And thus, I am hoping to plan my creative life better.

I haven't entirely figured out yet how this will manifest itself in 2015, but I definitely want to produce regular blog posts but with no pressure on myself to deliver on a set schedule.  I will however be making more time to do the things I love.  Art, art journalling, scrapbooking, Project Life and cross stitch is on the top of my lists for doing this year.  I've spent a year virtually collecting inspiration for the above and planning what I want to do but 2015 is definitely going to be my year of actually Doing.

I'm looking forward to a Fresh Start in my creative life for 2015.  I pray that this time next year I will be able to look back and be able to see a plethora of projects shared on this blog that I can be proud to showcase.  A fresh start sounds good to me on so many levels.  I'm so excited about the possibilities awaiting me.  I feel like I've been holding myself back for so long.  It's time to spread my wings and soar.  It is the time to allow myself the creative life I want for myself.

Book Review January - The Broken Man by Josephine Cox

Josephine Cox is not an author I would normally pick, but I received the book as a present from my mother in law.

The main theme is about the consequences of domestic abuse.  It tells the story of Adam, a young boy who had to bear things no little boy should ever see, and also the tale of Anne who was abused by her husband.  Though the theme was about domestic abuse, it was wasn't graphic or gory which I was glad about.  The tale weaved between Anne's story and Adams story which interlinked, and was a fairly easy read.  I was slightly disappointed with the ending of the book and thought it hadn't fully ended the story of Anne and didn't even mention how she would have felt about finding out her husbands childs link to her best friend.  I also found the aforementioned coincidence too far fetched.

Overall it was an OK book.  Not my favourite book of all time, but very readable all the same.  As the first book I have read of hers I don't know if this is the usual ty…
