Happy, happy, happy!

Journal Page

I sit here surrounded by 'stuff' pulled out from wardrobes and cupboards.  We're moving house and taking stock of everything ready for packing. Organised chaos!  Downsizing is the catch phrase around here and we have to let go of as much as possible.  We hope to be settled in by Christmas.  Big deep breaths......

Some wonderful news arrived this morning.... my artwork has been selected to be included in Patti Digh's new book to be published in 2011 -  'What I Wish For You' .  This news has lifted me up on a day when I am stressing about furniture and where it's going to go!  Happy, happy, happy!!


  1. Congratulations!! Don't stress about furniture placement, things look so good in a different house. If you take too much, just ring the Salvo's after the move & pass it on.

  2. Good News! I am soooooo happpy for you Patti.

  3. congrats on being included in the books. your wonderful work deserves more exposure. Congrats too on settling on your new home. in a way, clearing out is fun. Simplifying very satisfying. good luck.

  4. Congratulations on the sale of your house! Yippee, what fun! And congrats too on the inclusion of your work in Patti's new book...What a thrill it will be to open the page and see your work printed there.
