11 Comments's that time of year again!  The big day is a week away and thoughts start turning to the New Year as well as looking back at the year gone by.  On a personal front, I've seen my little girl leave primary school and embark on her secondary school career.  My son moved into year 10 and is now studying for his GCSE's (When I can get him to study anyway).....I must have blinked at some point and my babies turned into young people!  Workwise things are plodding along.....teenagers still scare me sometimes lol.  My grumpy back, which plagued most of my summer, was cured by weekly sessions of physio....Thank you so much're a miracle worker!!  But generally it's been a quiet year with no dramas which thankfully is good and I am very grateful for that.

Dragonfly has been steadily building throughout the year and I have been pleased with the few fairs I've done and am hoping that I can do more next year and keep building up the business year by year.  The website is getting visitors too which is really encouraging and I am constantly working away trying to get those Google rankings up!!  I am still obsessed with Swarovski and don't see that changing any time soon, so look out for more bling and sparkle coming up in 2012.

Finally Crafty-Bitz is undergoing some changes....all good ones though.  Natasha of Jeeberellas Craft Castle has joined as admin and shares my passion to spread the Handmade is Best message!!  2012 is going to be a good year for us and we have so many plans to promote all our members on every available platform!  Stay tuned with the latest news at the Crafty-Bitz blog!!   Oooooooh and speaking of blogs, don't forget to check out Handmade Monday over at Wendy's

Now all I have left to say is have a wonderful Christmas and a peaceful New Year and that I hope all your wishes for 2012 come true!!

Bye for now S xx

    It's amazing how quickly the babies become children and the children become young people who then one day become adults, enjoy your Christmas and best wishes for 2012 Jan x
