{let the good times roll}

Love this tree. It's got natural fairy lights.

I am officially on holidays for two whole glorious weeks.  We're doing our usual Christmas staycation with plans for some room swapping, gardening, movies, zoo outings and lots of lazing about.  I'll be diving into some book-making and painting as well.

All the Christmas doing and shopping and organising and cooking and .... is all done {well pretty much}.  Now it's time to wind down, wrap some gifts and enjoy time with the family and friends.  Good times!

My Christmas wish came true.  I have a new job!  I am absolutely over the moon.  I'll tell you more in the new year when it's all official and the dust has settled.  But let me say I think this is the job I have been seeking for the better part of 10 years.  And I never would have found it without all the lessons and gifts that this year has brought. I start in late January.  I am ready.

I have been cleaning and clearing.  My inbox and my mind so far.  But I have big plans.  A big house clean, a studio tidy, a gentle detox, a blog revamp and a facebook reboot.  I'm feeling like I want clean, clear, intentional space around me in the new year.  A fresh start in line with all the changes I've made this year.  Exciting!

I'm thinking and dreaming about 2013.  Jotting down notes about goals and wishes.  Playing with my word for the year.  Making some lists and getting excited to make my vision board and an accompanying journal.

I'll be around over Christmas and New Year, blogging here and there.  I'm going to take a break from {sunday snippets} till around mid January.

 Have a wonderful Christmas peeps!

  5. That's fantastic news Cathy! Congratulations!

    Something about summer holidays says "clean out" to me too. It's like it's a new year, new attitude. Or something!

  6. Hi Cathy, Congrats on the new job. That is a great feeling. And, thanks for the comment on my blog. I'd love to swap palettes with you! Let's talk after the holidays--we can swap addresses and send them along. Have a glorious holiday!
    Take care, Carrie
