On the Brink of a New Year

It’s the Dawn of a New Year, well almost. As I look back on the rollercoaster that 2011 has been I am not doing my usual Next year will be better, will be awesome etc cause I honestly do not know that it will or won’t. I have decided to let the New Year surprise me for a change and be what it will. No expectations. No resolutions. Just a couple of goals for myself and a hope that this year I make better choices and give my heart more wisely. Although on saying that sometimes the heart wants what it wants and you cannot always stop the speeding freight train that it can be.

I am grateful for all the love I received in 2011 especially from my friends in times of need.

This year has been a huge learning curve in so many many many ways. First and foremost in listening to my intuition and trusting it. In not doing things just because others encourage me to even when deep down I know it is not the right thing for me. In choosing what battles to fight. In believing in myself even in the face of great adversity. Of not only being ready for change but creating changes in my world.

The changes may only be small and insignificant to most people but for me they are leaps forward. The road thus far has been quite bumpy and emotional. It has been as any of you who have been around for this year and read my blog or spoken to me in short a Hell of a year.

Would I change a moment or two, possibly but in the end I have again learnt far more about myself and what I am capable of.

If I can get through a broken leg on my own with very minimal help I can accomplish anything. It may hurt like hell, I may end up in pain at times but the bottom line is even if it is a tiny baby step at a time I can and will do the things that I need and want to do.

2012 is already an exciting year for me. It is the 10th Anniversary of me as a bear artist. I am so looking forward to some of the ideas for bears I have this year. Not just for the creative challenges they will represent but also because 2011 is the only year in that 10 Years I have made just one Single bear. He is my smallest to date at just 3” tall but it feels weird looking back at the year and seeing only one bearbie.

My wish for anyone reading this is that 2012 gives you all you need. May you shine and grow. May you be surrounded by Love, laughter and dreams come true and may you truly be grateful for all that has come your way in 2011 and all that will come your you in 2012

Till we meet in the New Year

In Love and Light

About heavenlyimaginings

A crafter from the time I was a small child. My love of crafting has developed into a passion for making Artist Original Bears, Scrapbooking, making fascinators and hair accessories, as well as dabbling in other bits and pieces such as making the occasional small bag. I craft on a budget. Try and reuse and recycle where I can (I wish I lived closer to a big reverse cycle garbage type place). In truth I play when I craft. It is such an adventure. Often do not spend time looking for tutorials and tips online preffering to meander though in my own way. After all if you do not know the rules then you have no problems breaking all of them. Have to be honest and say I truly love being pushed out of my creative comfort zone, as it is in those moments that you have to stretch yourself and your imagination that often you create the most amazing works of art. Also passionate about Spirituality. I discovered my psychic gifts at age 19 and have walked along the spiritual path for 19 years now.
