Already January 3rd

I really do not know where the time goes anymore, a bit melancholy about it really. As a result I am trying to enjoy each moment, sometimes hard to do when cleaning the toilets and tackling mountains of laundry but I am going to try. Of course spending quality time with my kids is always a priority. I have one turning 7 this month, one turning 15 next month and one turning 12 this year. So hard to believe time of babies is over and they are growing so fast. I vow to play more games with them, read more stories to them and have more meaningful conversations with them, oh and teach them more....
Speaking of days and years we are getting out our new calendars, I again am going to use one of my own. I am very happy on how these turned out and was proud I got them out a little earlier this year.

Something I made

Just a little post of something I made a bit ago. I thought I should post something even though I didn't get started on the first it is pretty close being only the second. Of course again I am trying to post more and since it is a new year and it seems we always try to do things we have always wanted to do, here goes one of them, blogging more.
So I am always trying to figure out a cool hand made gift for someone who always says they don't need or want anything but on the other hand would do anything for you. So they finally told me they would like some of my stationary that I make out of my paintings. Well of course I could let it rest there so I went through some things I had on hand and made a little stationary pouch to hold the cards in. I thought it turned out so cute.
