Welcome to my crazy world!

Hello and welcome!

One of my Goals for 2012 is to write more posts.  I actually do a lot of crafty things, baking, cooking, etc… I mean to take photos of them (Santa even brought me a fancy new camera for Christmas so I wouldn't have to just use my lovely lovely iPhone).

However, ever since I got my new camera, I haven't crafted!  Well thats not true, I painted a beautiful vintage luggage rack a lovely shade of french grey with white trim.  It really turned out quite nice.  Will have to photograph!

Anyway, last few weeks I have been running around taking my kids on auditions.  For the last year and a bit my three kids have wanted to try their hands at acting.  They have actually been taking drama classes for the last 3 years with a very respected seasoned Canadian Actress.

My daughter was in a national commercial shot last february which was just rereleased (can you spell R E S I D U A L S?), and a smaller internet commercial for a health clinic.  Last summer my oldest son shot a great music video for an amazing young local talent called Diamond Rings, and he just got cast in an insurance commercial!  It will shoot sometime this week!  Again, no crafting or camera exercising.  But I guess while I love painting, crafting, JUNKING, etc…I love my kids more, and what makes them happy makes me happy.

Remember this face!

Updating goals for 2012…JUST KEEP SWIMMING...

Yes, Happy New Year, and I know this isn't how I'm supposed to start the year, but this is EXACTLY how I feel!  I am determined for this year, to be 'The Year'.  You know the kind of year I mean?  The year…

The year where I figure out exactly what I want to do with my life.
The year which allows me to finally shine.
The year where I put myself first.
The year where suddenly out of the blue I get my burst of creativity and an equal dose of ambition, which finally lets me do 'that thing' which I've have been meant to do.
Last year was the year which reminded me that I'm getting older.
The year which emphasized that I'm closer to 50 than 45.
The year which pointed out all that everyone else has accomplished.
However, this year will be 'The Year'!

I'm determined to ramble on and on on this blog, even if its meaningless babble…if only to allow some creativity to come through.
