Happy New Year!!

I hope you all had a lovely day yesterday, the first day of a new decade.......I hope this one doesn't go as quickly as the last one did!

This year is going to be a big year for us, we have been planning this for a while and now it's finally going to happen.............we are going to build our dream home on 5 acres just on the edge of town.
We've bought and renovated before and that was slightly stressful so I can't imagine how stressful a whole house is going to be!!
Get ready for a few posts about decorating, I'm totally addicted to all the interior magazines and blogs and I'm sure I'll have plenty to share.
The creative front this year is also going to be huge......I've already planned a few things for next christmas and after I finish a couple of orders I'll get into it! Shop Handmade is good for me.......very very good so I'd have to be crazy not to make it my main focus, I'll also do some online sales in my madeit store and possibly a few markets! That should keep me busy enough between picking tiles and paint colours!
I also want to make a few things for the new home, a quilt each for the kids to put in their new rooms and maybe one for myself......that might be pushing it slightly! I have so many decorating ideas I want to get into, covering chairs, window treatments, cushions, bedding and the list goes on.
So here I am slightly excited about the year ahead and what it will bring for our family. What are your plans for the year ahead, I'd love to know?
P.S. I made the little paper houses just before christmas and was going to use them in a special diplay. Next christmas I'll be sure to get it together nice and early!!
