I survived ...

I don't know how, but from October to December I managed to survive ... my boss selling the business I work in, she was no longer there to help me, my colleague went on maternity leave (there are 2 of us day to day in the office), the busiest time of the year in the promotional products industry and my husband and I moved house!  There were loads of days when I thought I couldn't cope with all the stress and so many tears, but finally the festive period was upon us and a 3 week break was just what the doctor ordered!

I needed to do something creative during this time to keep some semblance of sanity, so I hit my stash of old scrapbook papers and (didn't even make a dent creating) 60 handmade Christmas Cards.

What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.

Glad you were able to get some quiet creative time after all the stress and mayhem... your cards are gorgeous... and I love that quote... I only wrote it in my art journal two days ago :))
