what's the buzz ?

So all in all this year hasn't been too bad .
It hasn't been fantastic but life isn't perfect .

The best thing I did in 2012 was to give up smoking .
I didn't say anything earlier because I wanted to see if I could
do it and I have for almost 7 months .
To say that I am thrilled is an understatement .

I moved my kids to a different school so we have all been adjusting to this change.
Some of you already know that I picked up some casual work that
has turned into almost full time work .
The hours are all over the place and it is physically exhausting work
for an old chook like me but I'm really enjoying it .

So with all this stuff  going on my crafting and in
turn my blog has taken a back seat.
I did think (for a sec) about letting my blog go .
I tweet , and use pinterest and facebook but my blog is
the place that affects me the most .
So next year I need to pace myself a bit .
I'll still be posting a few times a week but I would like
to get more of my readers involved .
Would you like me to host and/or promote a giveaway for you ?
Would you like an honest opinion/review on your product ?
Would you be interested in more swaps ?
What about a craft competition ?
What's the buzz ?
Contact me here if you like .
Don't be shy I won't sting you in fact I'm allergic to bees
which is why I used so many bee photos in this post .
If I needed to risk my life taking these photos I'd
better use lots to make it worthwhile .
Happy happy New Year may it be everything you need it to be x

Carmel Morris said...

Congratulations on giving up smoking. That is an awesome achievement, and one that your body will thank you for. After seven months, I am sure you can consider yourself an ex-smoker now :)

It sounds like you have been through a lot of changes in 2012. Hopefully, 2013 will run a lot more smoothly for you and you can reap the benefits of all those adjustments.

Happy New Year!

Well Carmel has pretty much already said every thought that ran through my mind while reading this post :) Lol! Isn't it great when two minds think alike?!

Congratulations on the habit breaking!! That's awesome!! I am betting you're feeling so much better for it - both health-wise ... and financially, lol!

Good luck and best wishes over the coming year!!! Hugs!
