Excuses, excuses... and I even forgot to publish this blog post from the start of the year - hopeless!

Don't you just hate it when people don't update their blogs for ages and then suddenly pop up full of apologies or excuses with  promises of regular posts and exciting new things to come?

I do...

 But as much as I hate it in others, sadly I still find myself in that group of neglectful bloggers. I am of course sorry I have neglected my blog, I even have some pretty neat excuses too... but they, along with promises, mean very little if I don't follow through and take action.

So as I move through 2015 I have decided that things must change.

I have plans for this year ...starting with a total overhaul of my craft room. At the moment it is a complete tip and looks like a tornado chased a hurricane through there five minutes before an earthquake.


It always make me smile when people say their craft room is mess and they must tidy it and then  a couple of hours later they post again with a picture of a room so tidy it hurts.

I am a realist and I know my craft room tidy is going to take a lot longer than few hours... it will take more than a few days...it might take a few weeks...but I am determined to tame some of the chaos and so I have enlisted help for the task. A little shame, along with the promise of some new and focussed storage, is a great motivator and so here is a carefully angled photo - a glimpse into my very messy work room.

Once I have 'sorted' the craft room, I have great plans....

 Last year I vowed to learn something new and I went on a few workshops to try things that were new to me. I had such fun and so I am determined to carry that through to this year as well and  I have started researching suitable workshops and retreats for 2015.

I also want to try to complete at least one project each month. That is my aim and I would like each project to be different from the one that went before...it is still a bit vague but the good intentions are there.

And finally ... since crafting can be a rather solitary pastime, I am determined to spend some time crafting with others... and have already arranged a stamping session here at my house for later this month. (because I know myself well enough to know that if I don't organise it straight away then life will get in the way of my plans and it won't happen!)

All of that will keep me busy so there will definitely not be daily blog posts, but I plan to schedule in weekly posts for now...to keep me honest.

That is me and my early plans for 2015. I'd love to know what are you planning for 2015?
