Where did December go? I realised I have taken a step away from blogging this past month. It wasn't intentional but I am really glad for the space. More so these past 2 weeks have seen Jules doing alot of reflecting and looking back on the year. Having a book published in April, developing my first Jules Dolly workshop in May, going to Portugal to do Flora Bowleys' Bloom True workshop, which taught me such a different way to paint (you can read about it here, if you fancy). I got married in Gibraltar and that was such a highlight for me. (Go here if you'd like to nose in) I tallied up that I have done 12 commissions this year, which is one a month - that ain't bad and I'm pretty chuffed.
Lucy wasn't well in June, but thank goddess, she's doing really fine and taking all her herbal medication.
Next year is in the planning. I have been writing my course and will hopefully reveal this soon, it's something I'm collaborating with hubby. Exciting.
I have 10 weeks to write my 2nd book 'Creating your First Ever CV in seven easy steps', that is going to mean the next few months of strict structure, which is good for me.
Here are some of the highlights for me this year:-
|We're now a scooter family!|
|Just received my book in the post from the publishers|
|My first Jules Dolly Art Workshop in May|
|The 2nd Canvas 'depth' from Bloom True with Flora Bowley|
|The 1st Canvas 'thought bubbles'|
|Getting thee wed in Gib|
|Honeymooning in Gib|
|Connect the Dots, my biggest canvas yet - 3ft x 2 ft|
|Me and My Maid of Honour|
|Will, me and stepdaughter Janelle|
|A gift to a friend and her hubby to commemorate their wedding day|
|The Lovely Lucelee|
|Continuing with my oracle project|
|Recreating my art'heart space.|
|Learning to Knit!|
Anyone want to see what I knit!?!?
And so now to say cheerio to 2011 - you were good, there were ups and downs but I'm growing and learning all the time and finding my 'soulful way' all the time. Can't ask for much more.
It's good to see you.
