A year filled with highs and lows with many successes.

My daughter turned 13 - Welcome to teenage hood. I can feel this as being fun and excitement.

My youngest successfully danced her Island Dance and finished Primary School years.

Winter in our wonderland

While New Zealand is experiencing snow in the most weirdest places, down town Auckland, Gisborne has been unscathed. We have sprinkles on the hills but none inland. So while I am wrapped up to fight off this flu, I am looking outside to the blue skies and sun and thinking - nope, we are not going any snow here. I am Gisborne is just too hot :D

Hope you are all keeping warm, no matter where you are.

Words of wisdom. I have just finished Elizabeth Gilbert's book Eat Pray Love, what a delightful, thought provoking, inspirational and humorous book.

'It's 3 a.m. and Elizabeth Gilbert is sobbing on the bathroom floor. She's in her thirties, she has a husband, a house, they're trying for a baby - and she doesn't want any of it. A bitter divorce and a turbulent love affair later, she emerges battered and bewildered and realises it is time to pursue her own journey in search of three things she has been missing: pleasure, devotion and balance. So she travels to Rome, where she learns Italian from handsome, brown-eyed identical twins and gains twenty-five pounds, an ashram in India, where she finds that enlightenment entails getting up in the middle of the night to scrub the temple floor, and Bali where a toothless medicine man of indeterminate age offers her a new path to peace: simply sit still and smile. And slowly happiness begins to creep up on her.'

So great that I have ordered the next chapter 'committed'

At the end of her bestselling memoir Eat, Pray, Love,Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe - a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. (Both survivors of difficult divorces. Enough said.) But providence intervened one day in the form of the U.S. government, who - after unexpectedly detaining Felipe at an American border crossing - gave the couple a choice: they could either get married, or Felipe would never be allowed to enter the country again. Having been effectively sentenced to wed, Gilbert tackled her fears of marriage by delving completely into this topic, trying with all her might to discover (through historical research, interviews and much personal reflection) what this stubbornly enduring old institution actually is. The result isCommitted - a witty and intelligent contemplation of marriage that debunks myths, unthreads fears and suggests that sometimes even the most romantic of souls must trade in her amorous fantasies for the humbling responsibility of adulthood. Gilbert's memoir - destined to become a cherished handbook for any thinking person hovering on the verge of marriage - is ultimately a clear-eyed celebration of love, with all the complexity and consequence that real love, in the real world, actually entails.

I can't wait to receive and start reading. *tapping her nails on the desk*

By the way I have ordered the next edition from http://www.bookdepository.com/
with free shipping world wide (ohh I love that phrase)

As long as the dollar is right you can get books for far less than what you would in NZ you just need to be patient...

**Happy New Year ***

Wow, so it's 2011 already :)
Time flies when your having fun. My new years resolution, apart from the eating healthy, loose weight....blah blah is to attempt and master new techniques....so far I am having fun :D

My twisted dreams ring. Using wire and my NEW ring mandrel with a divine Cubic Zirconia stone for a centre piece.

And my first attempt at Silver Clay ......

I used a resin mould to get the textured look before cutting out a small hole for the pink stone. I just need to find a fine chain to hang this beauty from ;)

Oh well back to the designing board.....many more ideas running around and awaiting to be released and created............
