Hello, lovely to see you as always, thanks so much for stopping by.
Today you are joining me in a celebration, a little belated celebration of the Old Year. When New Year comes around, I always find I am not quite ready to begin planning for it until I've had a thorough chew over the year just gone by. So this is what I'm doing today :: having a good ol chew on 2008 before I get on with the business of welcoming 2009.
2008 :: what a year! I feel so blessed, it was a year of such creativity and happy discovery for me. I busied myself settling in to a new house, in a new town, making new friends. And then there was the start of Attic24. wow. Without sounding all dramatic, I can honestly say that starting to write this blog has really changed my life. I don't feel now is the time to talk Blog, I'll save that for another time...today I simply want to share my photographs with you, photographs which sum up what a happy, bright, colourful and creative year 2008 was for me.
As you probably know, I do enjoy taking photographs with my little Canon Ixus. I take photographs most days, and as a result I have amassed a fair collection of images (typically 300 or so a month). There were over 5000 photos for 2008. For someone like me who thrives on visuals, creating these 3x3 mosaics has been a very exciting project to work on. The above collection was a very random selection of favourite images that kind of sum up my life chez Attic24. Sewing, crochet, flowers, baking, walking, family time, me-time. And now, here follows a month by month visual diary of 2008. Remember you can click on each image to pop it up in a larger window. Here we go then, I so hope you enjoy!
I'm a bit lost for words really after that little lot!
I hope it's not been too much bombarding you with all these images? I'm thinking that throughout this year it'd be fun to make one of these 3x3's at the end of each month, a sort of Attic24 Visual Summary. And with that in mind I've created a little photo album to put them in :: so at any time you feel the need for a colour fix of Attic24 life, you can look over in my sidebar (down near the bottom) and have a little looky at these "Monthly Mosaics". You don't have to of course. Just saying it's there.
SO pheww, I feel better now. Feel kind of refreshed for the year ahead. Folks, I have such a LOT of stuff whizzing around in my head right now, so many projects and things that I wish to make happen, it promises to be a busy old time here at Attic24 over the next twelve months. A new crochet blanket will be starting shortly. House renovations also beginning very soon. New recipes coming, new things growing, an Etsy shop to open...ooooo I am so excited for it all! Yipppeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!
Have a great day, whatever you are up to. Hope you find that ray of sunshine today xxx
