New Beginnings

I bought a new sketchbook on new years eve, some new pencils & oil sticks. It was a simple gesture to welcome a new beginning.

It also seems a fitting time, to say thank you to all of the friends I have made here on this blog. Thank you for sharing your lives, your creations, your inspirations. I have enjoyed the journey.

I look forward to the next chapter. To all of the followers that have stopped by, thank you for your comments, your encouragement, & your friendship.

Here's hoping 2012 will be filled with simple pleasures, happy surprises, & creative inspirations!

  5. My favourites Sally... those sennelier oil sticks! How lovely ...the new journal for the new year!
    Love the opportunity that a new year ushers in for thinking fresh things... madly recreating m living and work spaces after feeling too crowded with old stuff i don't need...but being way too busy to do anything about till now!

    Many blessings to you for 2012,
