Creatively, I've been up to all sorts of no good these past 12 months, and I hope this year is another great year of creativity…whether it’s music, sewing, knitting, stapling, baking or who knows what else. I love having this MezzMakesStuff space to share with interested and/or like minded people what I get up to, so am looking forward to another fun year of blogging and meeting such great and creative people!
Last night we celebrated New Years with a very laid back BBQ at my brother’s house, and my sister in law, Ash, said that for her 2013 was going to be the year of "interesting-ness." I loved it! It got me thinking about what I want this new year to be about for me and my family, and the famous Beatles song "All you need is Love" floated into my brain and wouldn't leave. So this year my "mantra" if you like is "All you need is love", and I hope that from time to time throughout the year, when I get caught up in crap, lists, mess, heartache, busyness and who knows what else, I can remember the plain and simple truth that "All you need is Love."
What are your plans, hopes and dreams for this year?
I wouldn't call these resolutions, but here are some things I hope to achieve (or do more regularly then I currently do) this coming year….and even though this might just look like a random list of things to do, they are ideas born out of love in some way or another. Love for either for myself, family, friends, the earth or God. All you need is Love.
-Get my oven fixed (so I can bake bread!!)
-Meet more neighbours
