My goodness, your design really makes the most of that stunning run. I have never been on one as long as this ... The colours you have chosen are beautiful.

many congratulations to Sarah (and all of you!) and her stole is just beautiful.

Oh my goodness, that sounds very cold :(. Glad your journeying home was less stressful and hope that happy memories of your and John's loved ones continue to resurface as you fold Christmas away belatedly ...

Your interpretation of the design makes the most of that great photo - the page feels as if it has more photos on it than it does! I have always imagined you as intensely organised so it's interesting to read that there's overflow sometimes - hoping your new space is just what you want!

That's sounds like a great start, Honoré! I had Day One on my phone but just kept forgetting to use it :(. I'm more of a pen and paper girl, I think. I have begun a bullet journal and am loving it as a way of recording everyday.

Ahhh, how sparkly and celebratory is this! Off to read that great tip ...

What a wonderful word, Honoré! I especially like your five intentions - so beautifully expressed. I have just been reading Ali Edwards' thoughts on this and the importance of making these clear to oneself. I am so struck by the synchronicity of your thinking, especially when you talk about creating process. I do have a word, and hope to post very soon. What an amazing aim you have set yourself this year, and this comes with my very warmest good wishes for its fulfilment :).

This is just stunning - what a rainbow ... If I can, I try and get up very early and light the stove in the summer house before it gets light, and sneak down there during the day with a cup of tea. My time-out-of-time place.
What a splendid set of photos! That Christmas tree is very impressive, as is the cathedral ... And I love those stamped and handwritten fabrics. Oooh, now what are going planning to do with them?
Very best wishes for your anniversary and I hope John's aunt's health improves ... and you sound so well sorted for the year ahead! Lost in admiration here.

I really think you are the queen of fussy cutting! You do it so well, and it always looks great on your layouts ... Thank-you for all the inspiration you have given us this year and I am hoping that whether New Year's Eve is quiet or busy, 2015 will be full of good things for you and your lovely family.

Hoping you have had a lovely Thanksgiving, and your pumpkins are visually delicious :).

You seem so well ahead in your preparations, that I am quite envious. I've had a little break in the warm but with no chance of another for a while, but can really understand the need not to be in the cold for a long period of time. Hope that planning is fun too!

I love your clever water bus photo - great lateral thinking :). Glad you've enjoyed time away ...
I don't have any collections of paper, though I think Basic Grey is probably the one I have used most often. What a great idea to leave a space for Nikolas to do his own journalling, perhaps on a little card.

The yellow of that paper really makes your lovely puss's eyes glow! The vertical photo works really well.

It sounds as if CZ's project will support your own way of being very nicely - looking forward to seeing it as it emerges. I am late catching up here, and hoping that things are well with you and Norman ...
You have made a lovely job of these in Waterlogue - the walkway really caught my eye, as did the 'still life'.
Lovely to catch up, and I always enjoy your monthly goals - and intrigued that 2 and 3 chime closely with my own thoughts over here :).

Your coffee cup is delightful - and some very neat cutting round that handle!

This happened to us here one year and it does look so strange! I've been listening to the weather news and was wondering how you were faring. Hope it clears soon for you all.
Your cards always look so professional ... I love that top one with the card at an angle like that.

Very pretty - and the jute across the top is a lovely touch for the theme.

Those stripes with your lighthouse are brilliant! and the little flags work so well too. You have a great eye for detail.
