For you Shaggers :)'

Just a couple of layouts that Sharon was hounding me to see. Nothing too spectacular but I really love doing Christmas layouts, probably because I absolutely LOVE the Christmas season. I have a few more in mind to do, as well as a mini book. Just got to find the TIME to do them.

Any readers of Ali Edwards blog will know of her idea of choosing a word to honour during the year. I decided to choose the word 'Time'. this year.
I need to make TIME to do the things I want to do for myself,
I need to make more TIME to catch up with family and friends,
I need to use my TIME more wisely,
I need to spend more TIME playing with the kids instead of getting caught up in the housework and everyday stuff,
I need to make more TIME to spend with Col, one on one,
I need to stop wasting TIME on the computer,
I need to stop wasting TIME procrastinating,
I need to make more TIME for the creative things in my life,
I basically need to find some more TIME, lol.

I've just realised that this last one isn't quite finished, I need to put something in the little name plate, forgot to do that. I think I might frame it and hang it in Ella's room (thanks Ruth for that idea), it's a lift of one of her t-shirts which I love. Any suggestions as to what to write in the little frame will be gratefully accepted. :)

"Time is a companion that goes with us on a journey. It reminds us to cherish each moment, because it will never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we have lived."
Captain Picard from the film "Star Trek: Generations"

Gosh you do fabulous stuff Janny, I know you don't think it and know it, but you are seriously one talented chicky. I love the one for Ella's rom. Very very clever. Might have to pinch that little gem.

Kirsty said she wants one too.

Your word for the year has just summed up every single thing I have written down as my resolutions for 2008. It's scary how often we seem to be on the same page.

Mwah xx

Jan, you really are very very clever. I am loving that Christmas Tree, very very cute. And the one for Ella's room is gorgeous, you will have to write down instructions so I can do one for Keely....priceless.

And I am loving your theme in 2008, you sound very motivated which I love to hear. Must admit, like Shaz, there are lots of your resolutions on my list too. We shall compare what we have done in January 2009!
