A new year begins...

I've been completely lost & absorbed in summer holiday lazing, visiting, beaching & relaxing.  It's been a hectic few weeks but I've thoroughly enjoyed having my family around and simply living one day at a time...
the fair...
Now the new year has begun.  We've kicked it off full speed ahead beginning with fireworks on the Bluff which was the most spectacular & mesmerising sight.  This was the first time our boys have stayed up til midnight so it was incredibly exciting, maybe just a little bit challenging but very much worth it! We've also had lots of birthdays, a christening & my baby brother announced his engagement to his gorgeous gorgeous girl, his soul mate!  And already its time for Hubby to go back to work, family head home & it's time to clear out & tidy up around this place. 
I've been busy making a few pieces for two new stockists which I'm very excited about.  It's always so lovely to have people admire & comment on my work, and so to have been asked to pop some things into a couple of local stores has just about blown my mind! It sure is a learning experience, but it's an exciting opportunity and I can't wait to see where it leads me.  So here's to a very promising 2011 for Loved, we're off to a good start so far!
lazing with the Great Aunts...
beaching with friends...
Though for now, there are still 3 more weeks left of our holiday season and I plan to bask in the joy this beautiful seaside town has to offer...
