Goodbye 2008, Hello 2009

Goodbye 2008, you were a hard year, tough physically. mentally and emotionally, lots of highs and lots of lows but I am another year stronger for it!!!

Hello 2009, I love you already!!! I have big plans for this year, big positive plans, life changing, enriching plans. I have goals and resolutions, some big, some small but all exciting!!! Some in progress and some to be started.

I have my new diary to help me on my way and a new notebook (to be covered) which has my goals, resolutions and objectives written in it.

I have some business to take care of, tying up of loose ends which will give me closure on some things, a lot of excess stock and house clutter to off load which will give us a fresh start, a clean slate so to speak.

And lots and lots of crafty, creative ideas running around in my head!!!

Hooray for 2009!
