Second look on the 2nd

Over at Bluebeard and Elizabeth's blog there a chance to see some posts that you might have missed from a while ago!
I have something from 2013


Time to take down the decorations!

...well, as my background - I took down the decorations in the flat yesterday, not wanting to tempt fate by leaving them up beyond Twelfth Night!I hope you like the background which a piece of needle felting I did last year. 
At the moment life isn't slowing down that much - partying again last night - another family party to celebrate a birthday, lots of games at this one and lots of laughter!
I'm longing to get back into my craft room, but for now there is just a pile of Christmas leftovers - not food I might add, just the entrails of some pre-Christmas crafting.
I have been doing some journaling - mainly on my knee in front of the tv while we do some catching up on recorded Christmas tv!
This was started following a walk at Holker Hall before Christmas - I think you may get the picture(we turned back!!)
This background was re-hashed a couple of times before I was happy with it and I drew the face and added the clock and the title (a Sandy Denny classic!)this year!!!
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year

Wishing you now, as then a very Happy New Year 

If you have an old post you like why not link up to Elizabeth's blog and show it off

Thanks for looking, Chris

Ha - I never know where the time goes! I didn't put up any decorations, so don't need to take any down. And it took nearly an hour to write this comment because my computer keeps freezing! I think I need to scream!! See you tomorrow at the tea party, hugs, Valerie

I was a good girl- good to have it done-yes!

Fun to see a page that I missed in the past. I want to wish you a Happy New Year. Amazing that we are at 2017 already, it seems like the big fuss about 2000 was only yesterday.

Love seeing your older journaling pieces. I can't get over how fast time goes by. Way too fast it seems. Why was it always so much slower when we were kids? Or at least it seemed that way to me. Happy January 2!

I can so relate to the words in your second look post. Where does the time go?!?!? Thanks for sharing the page!

I obviously had not seen this post before, but I really like it. Of course, I also like seeing how different your journal pages are now versus then. And yes, I can relate to time slipping away, because it truly did this year.

Thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to join us for a second look this first month of 2017.
