A Look Back at 2016

May this new year bring peace, clarity, and happiness. Here's a look back at my journey this year:

January
Charlotte Gift Bags
Definitely one of my favourite paper collections of the year. This gift bag punch is so handy, too.

February
The Most Fabulous Birthday
The clear gumdrops were one of my favourite embellishments this year.
March
Grilled Hawaiian Pineapple with Rum Sauce
I loved creating this delicious dessert in our beautiful surroundings in Maui.
April
April Recap
As part of my Happiness Project, I really focussed on April bringing about peace and calm. To do this I spent some time with those who give me strength. Some activities included creating a fairy garden and going to a Meditation and Mindfulness Yoga Retreat in Lake Louise.


May
Love is Like Wine
The stitched dies were fun to play around with - especially with watercolours.
June
Banana Bread French Toast
I love how this tasty breakfast turned out
July
Plastic Free July
This post is a recap of all my findings and experiences with Plastic Free July. I look forward to further incorporating these changes into my life next year.
August
My Happiness Project - August
Although my Happiness Project fell to the back burner with all that life brought this fall, I love this final layout that I created this summer.
September
Inspired By...All The Little Things Guest Designer
It was fun to be my aunt's guest designer this fall after getting to paint with her this summer at the cabin
October
Good Cheer
I was loving the plaid this year and enjoyed incorporating it into many of my cards.
November
My Own Inspiration Pic
I am so thankful for our beautiful surroundings and love our new property.

December
Happy Holidays
I love this Perfect Bow die from Simon Says Stamp.
Goals for the new year include slowing down, savouring moments, and doing more of the things that make me happy.

Cheers to a new year
