How are you all going this year??? Did you make any New Years resolutions? The only one (besides get healthier - which I say every year!!!) I made this year was to try and give only handmade presents for the whole year. Even if they're not made by me, I'd like to try and give a handmade gift. The above is my first purchase! I've already bought a few things from Hearts & Roses Jewellery and I had a few of these little bag charms made for gifts. They're very Australian with their little kangaroo, koala and Oz charms plus I wanted a couple of good luck charms thrown in as well. I've sent one to my Mum (who's traveling around Australia) and one is for my niece who heads off to the UK in a couple of weeks for a year. I love them... thanks Louise you did a wonderful job. I wish I'd taken a photo of the others before I sent them off!!!
Now on to the "get healthier" resolution. I am doing the 30 day green smoothie challenge which I did a couple of years ago. I don't know why I don't just do it every day as these drinks are delicious.... and so quick and easy. This year is even better though, as there are lots of new recipes and ideas to try. The purple one is the result of a handful of blueberries! My favourite so far is the pear, banana, spinach and almond milk. But I love the mango, banana, pineapple and spinach one too... I'm going to try a new recipe each day! Luckily you can't taste the spinach!!! So far I've gone 8 days....and loving it!!!
I went and saw Les Mis the other night and I loved it!! In fact I loved it so much I want to go again. Some movies really should be seen on the big screen, and this is one of them. Ann Hathaway and Hugh Jackman were superb. Wonderful!
And of course, being Tuesday.... I got together with girls today for our first stitch, chat, laugh, eat, catch up!!! I wasn't able to stay all day, but I had a lot of fun seeing them and even got to do a bit of stitching. I'm so close to finishing this now... Just a bit on the top left and a couple of hearts in the center....
Helen had these cuties to eat... some left over Christmas treats.. They were very delicious little reindeers!
I am heading off to the movies again tonight.. to see "The Hobbit"... I love going to the movies!
Hope you're all having a wonderful start to the New Year.
