My Poor Neglected Blog

Oh dear, it has been soooo long since my last post, I REALLY did keep meaning to, but then life and Pinterest (an  addiction) got in the way!
But honestly.... 2011 was a strange old year, and although I had some lovely happy times, my daughters graduation, our 25th wedding anniversary, trip to Dublin and a lovely walking week in Derbyshire. I felt like I never properly got to grips with 2011!It felt like there were lots of downs too, in fact I can't bear to watch the news anymore with all the awful things going on in the world
The recession has hit my little business somewhat too,people didn't have as many pennies to spend, so I spent quite a bit of time working on that.
However I am determined to make the most of 2012 and made a good start with decluttering and organizing in January.
Now in Feb I've been designing some new makes for my Etsy shop I also need to make a start on some re-decorating! I shall show you soon!
I'm looking forward to catching up with you all

Love Rachel x

Hello Rachel, lovely to see you back! I'm going to make the most of 2012 too. I think 2011 was a bad year for a lot of people. I love your new makes! Don’t leave it so long for your next post... ;)
