A New Year…

Wow, where did 2015 go… I can’t believe we are already nearing the end of January 2016. Only a few weeks left of holidays until school and work schedules resume all over again.

Although before the hustle and bustle returns, be sure to take the time to reflect on the past year and plan for the new year, (see my new year’s day post for more).2016 is a new year full of unique opportunities, interesting findings, fun adventures. A year when new friendships are formed, old ones grow, and lots of happiness and laughter filled memories will be made.

Today’s post is all about a new year full of possibility, a blank canvas ready to be painted on, a novel waiting to be opened. So don’t let the endless possibilities and ideas make you feel anything but excitement! 2016 can be anything you wish. Make it your’s! 🙂

I thought a perfect way to symbolise this would be to share with you a little project I’ve been working on…. designing my own 2016 personalised calendar! I bought a DIY kit from Kikki.K back in December and have been collating images and quotes to symbolise each season. I hope you enjoy scrolling through the end result as much as I enjoyed making it! 🙂

December: Summer has arrived, and it’s time to go clothes shopping again. Christmas is almost upon us, and the scent of sunscreen can be found in every corner of the house. Ahhh, summer time. Ice-cream anyone?
