Blank Pages

Well, here we are at the edge of a new year. I see the new year as a book of blank pages ready to be filled, a blank canvas, a fresh start.

I look forward slightly apprehensive and yet excited for the months ahead.

This year is going to be a year of doing rather than dreaming for me. A year of action!

I hope to fill the pages ahead with learning new skills, growing more things in the garden, getting closer to nature and continuing to explore my creative side.

What do you aim to put in your book in 2010?


  1. ...continuing to count you as a dear bloggy friend! Have a very happy New Year!

  2. I'm up for fun this year - all told, last year was a bit serious, but this one feels different!

  3. i like the blank page feeling that a new year brings too...
    wishing you a very happy 2010 Simone and thank you for your friendship this year,
    warmest wishes

  4. I love those blank pages...all that potential! Like you, I'll be focusing on action (rather than dreaming...!).
    A very happy new year to you, Simone.

  5. I too like the new fresh new year-no mistakes!
    Look forward to see what you get up to next year!
    Hope it's a happy one for you!

  6. Happy New Year my dear friend!

    I promise i haven’t forgotten your parcel! It is still sat here waiting to be sent-all going well you might get it in the New Year. ;0)

    Love Lou xxx

  7. Simone...I love the thought of all those empty pages to fill with dreams and aspirations. Me? I think I'll be quite busy with watching my three little granddaughters! Not going to be much time for blogging and crafting except, perhaps, in the evenings. But, my plan is to 'live in the moment' and see what transpires! Happy New Year, sweet Simone!

  8. Not sure as to what I will put in my book of blank pages but I am going to try and fill every page!
    Happy New Year

  9. I'm planning lots more creative time, more me time! Happy new year!

  10. Lovely crisp new pages - now what will you put on your first page today? I echo Michela's thoughts - have a wonderful New Year:)

  11. A very Happy New Year Simone!
    Love, Sal ;-)

  12. Happy New Year to you Dear Simone!

    I love that you are creating this journal, it is something I am doing myself and I like the thought of what might be created from it in time.

    Wishing you a succulent journey, looking forward to seeing new art too!

    Love Julia xxx

  13. Happy New Year to you, I hope your dreams all become reality this year! 2010 is going to be a busy year for us, relocating, finding a house, starting new jobs... busy, busy but full of hope xx

  14. trying to actually do some of the crafty things I see all over Blogland instead of bookmarking the pages in a file I always forget to look in !! Good luck

  15. Great post! I love the idea of a 'year of action'! Go girl :-)
    Cheers, Karen

  16. Warmest wishes to You for a Joyful, Peaceful and super Creative 2010.

    I am back to reading your love blogs again :o) though not planning on writing one again for sometime yet.

    Happy new Year!



  17. So far the only thing that's going in to my book is hopefully learning how to crochet. Fingers crossed for that one!

    However I hope there'll be more going in there as the year progresses, just have to wait and see!

  18. Happy New Year to you Simone!
    I'm looking forward to seeing what 2010 brings your way!
    I'm itching to start some new quilts...

  19. Best wishes for 2010 SImone and your year of action is exactly what I'm trying for too..Gxox

  20. Oh Simone, what a nice post!
    I'm hoping to create more artwork and possibly sell some of it and donate some to charitable causes.
    I'm also hoping to become a better cook - something I have been lacking in!!
    Best wishes to you in all your endeavors for the new year!

  21. Lots of knitting, crafting, being happy and getting fitter!! Happy new year! x
