New beginnings ......

2010 for me is all about "BALANCE" and finding the happy medium between work, family and play. There were times in 2009 where the "work" aspect well and truly took over and left me little time for much else. During 2010 I inspire to be more organised and also adopting a "do it now" attitude which means not putting off those little things till they become one huge time consuming problem. I am also learning to make the most of my time by setting achievable goals and NOT PROCRASTINATING!!!! hehehe

My new outlook on life means I am finding more time to fit in the little things in life that I missed out on.

I love ATC's!! They are highly addictive and I just love having a little piece of all my online friends to treasure forever. I wonder if in hundreds of years these little artworks will be selling for big $$'s at antique auctions????

Anyway, over at Scrap n Art the theme for February is "New Beginnings" and this idea popped into my head right away!

I have created a chrysalis hanging from a branch using stamps and 3Ded leaves.


When you open the chrysalis it reveals a beautiful butterfly!!



A wonderful New Beginning!!!
