2014 goals made simple

2014 goals made simple

I don’t know about you, but it became my tradition to write New Year’s resolutions on New Years eve. Although the goals I have written down in the past for the new years never lasted (such as eating healthier), I always liked the idea of giving a chance to new habits while getting rid of the old ones. Can you relate to this? This year somehow is different, I struggled quite a lot to think of any goals mostly because there were many exciting changes last year. Meeting someone really amazing is one of them!

So I came up with these simple goals! Simple goals sometimes are the most effective they say ;-).

Happy New Year!

So since we launched our website in June there have been a lot of changes in my life. The biggest change is that I have been blogging almost everyday and I am loving it! I especially have enjoyed the responses from you and all the kind words. Thank you so much for that!

I would like to hear more feedback on the practicality of the website and I wonder if you have had a chance to visit our virtual cafe? If not, then click on “CAFE” on the menu above and check out our interactive cafe, illustrated by Vickie :).

Another great news! We have been working really hard to open “tea and biscuits” shop and it is coming really really soon! I am so excited about it and I really hope it is going to be up and running just on time for Christmas.

Thanks for your  support and have a lovely week ;)



Pinterest lovers, let’s unite!

Hey! do you like Pinterest? I love it! Its like making inspiration idea boards online, except with less mess. If you are like me, you will be excited about this as I have created a special group crafts board that anybody can join. Basically anything that inspires you to do crafts or the DIY projects can be pinned there and because it is a group board it will be fun to see what everybody else is doing! Interested? Read on to see instructions on how to join :).
