Love & Smiles Across The Miles

I hope you had a very happy Christmas day.  I did.  It was wonderful to spend time with my family, watch everyone open presents, and eat a fabulous roast turkey dinner lovingly prepared by my brother-in-law, Al, and sister, Charlotte.  Al knows how much I love my Christmas dinner and so always insists I have seconds. He's a top bloke...

Did you have a lovely time? I hope so.

I have a confession to make.

I'm a stationery fiend. I love all kinds of stationery and art supplies.

So when I opened my gifts this year and saw a box of Tombow dual brush art pens, a brand spanking new diary, and a book of Cath Kidston stickers, it was hard not to spontaneously combust. I'm very lucky.

Here are some lettering doodles I did yesterday on my Cath Kidston stickers in my new 2013 diary.  Words I want to remember in 2013.

It was a very happy time for me!

I've been very much counting my blessings this Christmas season and it has felt amazing to know how lucky I am to have family and friends who love me and who I love.  I have a roof over my head, food to eat, and cats to squeeze.  And a red fleecie onesie.  With feet included.  So I don't even need to wear slippers. Back of the net.

I'm very grateful.

Do you love starting your new diary?  Do you choose special words at the beginning of each year? Have you had lots of blessings this Christmas season?  I hope so. ♥

Wishing you glitter and sparkle this New Year, with a big pinch of magic for 2013. Sending love and smiles across the miles.
