New Fallen Snow

Winter has finally arrived in southern Germany.

The new fallen snow blankets the land far and wide.
One of my watercolors of a stream nearby.
I had to shovel out my driveway....I´d rather be painting.
How is winter treating you so far?

I am sharing this with Paint Party Friday.

A quick link to a useful resource for Bookbinders.
This is a dictionary that combines all the known Bookbinding
and Conservation terms in English, German, French, Dutch, Spanish,
Swedish, Italian and Danish all in one place.
This wonderful reference was drawn up by Suzy Morgan

Ring in the New 2012

full of promise and hope

This is the year your ship will come in.

Can´t decide on what your resolution or goal should
be for 2012?
Allow me to make a few suggestions.
Maybe the following will help you decide.

you could be more inquisitive or ask
yourself "what if" more often in 2012

you could make a lifestyle change and decide to
eat more healthfully in 2012

you could decide that you are ready to take more
chances or risks on the job in 2012

perhaps you could be more willing to explore unknown
territory in 2012

you could definitely find more time to dance
in 2012

or opt to take more time to reflect and savor
life´s moments in 2012

you could make yourself available when
someone needs a boost
in 2012

you could play dress ups more often in 2012

you could also decide to send out more joy in 2012

or is it more rest or sleep that you need in 2012

you could stretch your limits or find new interests
in 2012

or vow to stay at home and clean out your closets
more often in 2012

how does going to the playground more often in
2012 sound to you

or telling your boss you are out to lunch and head to
the beach more often in 2012

in 2012 you could trust your instincts more often
and when you smell a good thing....
go for it

you could turn up the music REALLY LOUD and
exercise more often
in 2012

you could smile a lot more in 2012

or you could be kinder and give more
hugs in 2012

Have you made any resolutions?
Do you normally set new goals or find yourself more
motivated for change at this time
every year? Perhaps you are one of many who
just ignores it all and gets on with the business at hand.

All the best to you and yours for 2012!
