* * * Happy New Year * * *

Happy New Year everyone!

My blog was very neglected throughout 2016 which was mainly due to the pressures of work. The stress had a huge impact on my personal life which resulted in me losing all interest in card making and blogging. I even considered selling my stash at one point but am thankful that I didn't make any rash decisions at the time and that it's all still here, safely stored away.

Once you have lost your mojo it's really hard to find the motivation to reclaim it, but I fully intend to take control during 2017 and not let work dominate my home life as it did in 2016.

I just wanted to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has visited me and left comments in 2016 and to wish you and your families a peaceful and happy 2017.

I really do appreciate the time you have taken to vist my blog and leave comments.  Hopefully throughout 2017, I will be able to entice back many of the followers I lost thoughout 2016 due to the lack of cards being made and posted.

Hi there Donna!
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YOU TOO!!

I have also been absent from my blog and lost Mr Mojo but like you I intend to bounce back!
CD Rom crafting is the way for me at the moment but that might change later ;-)

Lovely to see you back and I hope to see more of your perfect cards soon.

Love Eve xx

Happy new Year to you and your family Donna. Wishing you all the best.
I know how you feel about your blog as mine also took a very big back seat and I don't suppose I realised before how much just a little crafting took away the stresses of my everyday life!! I hope you will continue to find sometime through the next year just as I have tried to do-it's been kinda fun revisiting all those stamps I forgot I had(lol)

Donna, I totally understand how stress can affect you and I'm glad you didn't let work stress win. So glad you'll be back crafting as I'm such a fan of your work. I'm back to blogging too. Crafting is what keeps stress away for me so I'm thinking of you, my dear friend. Hugs...Terry
