New Year, New You

Hi guys

Well I know it's already day 6 of the new year and one of my resolutions was to keep my blog updated and keep you posted on what's going on in my little world, but I'd thought I'd finally make a start.

It's taken me a few days to get into the new year but we've now taken down the Christmas deco's and the house feels empty and looks so much bigger, I've also started on my lose weight regime.  It's going well so far and I'm not really dieting per say but I'm eating smaller portions and watching what I'm eating (and keeping a food/drink diary).  I've also been doing Davina McCalls dvd The Power of 3 and it's really good, well for me it's really good and she makes me giggle so it keeps it fun.

I've also slowly started going through the things that I just don't need/want and so am having a clear out of the 'junk' in my house.  Things that are no longer needed got to go.  That feels really good to do too (as well as eating well and exercising) as it's a fairly simple way of making you feel like you've accomplished something even if it's a small area or a drawer.  I'm not going to rush through it either, just going to do it as and when I feel it's time.  I think we try to cram so much into our days/weeks/months that when we don't do it all we let ourselves down and it shouldn't be like that.  This is a positive thing to do.

I'm still hoping to get some video's up and running (gotta get my brave cap on first)!  I am really looking forward to doing that but I'm a bit of a nervous nelly LOL!

I hope all of you enjoyed the festive season and are having a wonderful start to the new year.  They say 13 is lucky for some - let it be for all of us!

Sorry guys forgot to say that I've changed my blog to try and make it fresh for the new year and if you're looking for the buttons/archive/about me/subscribe etc they've on the right hand side of the blog.  There's a little grey bar and when you put your mouse over it they'll pop out. Not sure if I like this as it's not easy to see but we'll see. Maybe you can let me know what you think by commenting?

Take care
Janene

My First Video Trailer!

Hi Everyone

I'm super excited to get this out to the interweb and share with you all. I watched a fellow YouTuber, Amy, and her suggestion was to use Adobe Spark to make quick videos to post on social media. Her video is fantastic and super easy to follow so please check it out. I gave it a go and voila! I made one in about 5 minutes flat. Can you believe it! I've shared it on my social pages so be sure to check those out but in case you're not on any social media, here it is, my Wicked Cool Video Clip. Pretty darn chuffed with myself :)

One thing I'm learning about all this video editing/making is that you have to fun with it otherwise what's the point. My aim is to make people smile and if I can do that for just one person today, then I've done good :)

Before I go, here are some more inspiring images of art that I created, just for fun :)


Have a wonderful day! See you in the next one!

Love & Hugs

*edited* I Have 2 Sites That I'm Running Now :)

Hi everyone

One of the changes is that I now have a new site so I would love it if you popped over to say hi.

You can get there by clicking here.

I will be posting on both and haven't yet decided whether to make each blog about a different topic/genre. If you have any ideas or tips I'd love to hear from you :) Sharing is one of the many reasons I love this community. We're like one big crafty family :)

This year (yes I realize that this is being updated in April lol) I want my blog and YouTube channel to grow and to develop into something I can be truly proud of and sometimes change is needed for this to happen. I will, of course, continue to blog and share videos on crafting however I want to bring a few other topics into that as well, still not decided on what those will be.

I hope you will all join me on my new adventure.

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs

Happy New Year!

Hi Everyone

I wanted to pop on, I know it's been so long, to wish you all a very Happy New Year. I hope that 2018 brings you peace, positivity and power. Peace to stay kind, positivity to keep calm and power to do the things you thought would be impossible.

I too, am making some changes in my life and I will be sharing some of those with you. I want my blog to prosper and I want to share kindness around like confetti. My blog may become an outlet for me to share my feelings/views, my craft projects, planner stuff and health & fitness progress. I figured if I made myself accountable I may actually stay on track :)

It's a good time to reflect and it's a great time to let go of the toxic things in your life, whether they are people or things, toxic is still toxic and it has affected me in so many ways.

You may have noticed that my blog has a new look and I'm very happy with it. I think, just like me, it needed refreshing. I hope you like it too and continue to follow …
