Christmas Break.. and looking back over 2016

Hello everyone!

It’s about that time of year where I take some time out for family, Christmas and holidays and I must say I’m looking forward to it – spending some time with family and not having to work to a schedule for a few weeks.. that will be great!

Whatever you do over the break – celebrate Christmas or simply the holidays – I wish you a fun, restful and happy break… from me to you  🙂

christmas-holidays-2016_robyngosbyThanks so much for joining me again this year… I love the blogging friendships we make here at WordPress… and for me, the inspirations that come with them.

Looking back over 2016

To be honest, sitting here right now – I feel like 2016 has been a bit of a blur… so I love that I can look back over images that help me to remember the year.. Also, this year has very much been about finding ‘interest’ in my own back yard, which at times has been tricky and I’ve really needed the motivation to ‘discover’ new or the same things again within my space.

Also this year, I decided to spend some time on Still Life photography and to return more to my drawing and painting..

This is a brief overview of 2016 from my world..

January – holiday month

February – man it’s hot outside

March – some cooler days

April – Autumn!!

May – colder weather and gorgeous mornings

June – Winter

July – very cold out – time for Still Life

August – enjoying the light

September – trying different things…

October – Spring – still cold and gorgeous light

November – a mix of indoors and outdoors

..and December.. apparently a pink month!

As I said previously, thanks for joining me this year and especially in the challenges.. I’ve been a little scarce at times this year due to very dodgy wireless internet (and often with none!).. but I look forward to another year on WordPress in 2017.

I’ve really enjoyed Instagram this year too and have (mostly) shared different images over there. It’s great to be able to interact with so many fellow bloggers over there too.

Wishing you the very best of the Season.. and moving forward into the New Year. See you there!

Holiday Greetings..

Hello everyone 🙂

It’s that time of year again where I take some time away from the computer to spend some fun time with family over the holidays and January.

We get together to share Christmas and it’s usually low key and relaxing. Always nice to get together at the end of a busy year.

However you spend the holidays, I’d like to wish you and yours much happiness.

Merry Christmas


A little about 2015

What a great year it’s been!

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed getting to know more people through the One Four Challenge and just in general… and I thank you again for all of your visits and friendships.

For me it’s been another quality year of learning and for that I’m always thankful.

This end of the year has seen me with more energy for creating in design once again, so I’ve turned my Facebook page and stores back on – it’s been a while.   Small steps for now 😉

The One Four Challenge

This really surprised me in the best way! I never imagined so many would be interested in my idea and it’s been a blast!  For now the One Four is taking an undetermined break – time to renew.  Keep challenging yourselves though and keep experimenting. Thank you to all of you who have been involved xx 😀

Our health

If you read my blog, you know I’ve had health issues this past couple of years, but this year has been a good one.. as I said, moving forward and I’ve learned a lot which is important.  Look after yourselves! xx

Not much else to say

Well that doesn’t happen very often 🙂

So.. from me to you..

Merry Christmas and(or) Happy Holidays!  Enjoy this end of the year and I’ll see you in 2016!
