Wonderful Wednesday ... 36

Well how are you? I'm just fine thank you for asking...My week is going great so far and I'm in a stupidly good mood. I'm pleased I have managed to maintain a somewhat good mood for the majority of this depressing month, winning! But as payday is in sight now... I feel my mood just getting better and better, hehe.

But here are the little bits that have been putting that extra bit of sparkle on my week...

I'm getting really into piercings at the moment, can I stress here that when I say that I STRICTLY mean nothing below the neck! hehe.  So I am writing this little post to talk a little about my piercings and show off some pretty jewelry.

Wonderful Wednesday ... 35

Most wonderfullest of Wednesdays to you!

Looking through my phone to pick out a header image for this post, I realise I haven't really taken any 'proper' photos yet this year! Just a bunch of crap selfies, and screenshots of ear piercings... so I present to you a probably seen before landscape image from a couple of months ago, it's very pretty though!  (must take more photos!)

So have the January blues hit you yet? I am thrilled to report I am GOOD! I am still hanging in there with my resolutions (well, er, mostly) and I feeling quite positive about life... I don't even care that I have no money (nope, not a bit! eek!) and the weather is dreadful...

Let's take a closer peek at what's keeping that smile on my face this week...

How I plan to stay organised in 2017

So I usually do some sort of annual post looking back on previous year's goals, reviewing them and then setting some more.  Well, I'm changing it up a bit...

2016 was great in so many ways (I moved in with Mark this year!) but it was also a bit crap in so many ways and looking back I don't feel like I achieved much.  Yes I have set many goals for myself this year, I always do, and will continue to always do so.  But this year I think it is more interesting, and probably better for my chances of actually achieving them, to discuss and focus on the HOWs instead of the whats....

Wonderful Wednesday ... 34

Well hello! I feel all refreshed and inspired to blog more this year and this has a lot to do with my fancy new blog layout.  If you are reading on your phone or through a blog reader and cannot see my lovely layout properly, then do please visit me on a desktop computer and have a peek...

My lovely blog design is the work of my very talented sister, her portfolio can be viewed here... sorry, couldn't help getting in a little plug there.... :-)

To go with my new blog layout I'm also experimenting with some new Wonderful Wednesday graphics, these will probably change over the next few weeks until I settle on a style I like.  I like to be able to make the little graphics for these on my phone and currently using the app 'Over' SO good!

Anywho... onto the happiness...

Make your own taggy baby sensory toy

2016 in craft

And the second in my annual round up posts. You may have spotted my 2016 Adventures post here, well this time it's my 2016 in craft.

It really does make me truly happy to compile all these makes together into one post to look back upon. (It also makes it super easy for future reference when I am searching links and patterns to things, hehe). But it's all part of reflecting on my year and my achievements. I'm always super proud of everything I make and this makes me happy.

The outdoor adventures of 2016

I've been writing up review posts of this kind for the past good few years now and I just LOVE compiling these. You can see here 2013, 2014 and 2015.  It is part of my new year ritual to look back through the year and realise what fun adventures I have had, and 2016 is certainly no exception.

I've always said I blog for me first and foremost, I love having this 'diary' of the things I have done so I can look back and remember super fun times.

So here is my 2016 in outdoor adventures:
