Happy New Year! It’s time for the Just Add Ink New Year Blog Hop.
This Year the theme is “Summer”.
Summer means Holidays….Right?
I’ve had a few weeks off work to relax at Home. The weather has been hot here so we have spent a lot of time relaxing and swimming. With Christmas and the New Year, I also spent some time reflecting on 2021.
In my first Blog Post of 2021, I commented how strange the previous year (2020) was. I’m sure you will agree, that 2021 was just as strange – with COVID aside, for my family, it was a Year of many changes – Births, Deaths and Marriages.
Ana and Jeremy got married, Neil’s Dad passed away, we welcome a new nephew and Ana is expecting a baby soon too.
Probably the biggest change for me, was that I changed jobs. I left Computershare after almost 12 years and now work at Alstom Transport. I am the Training Administrator for part of the Perth Metronet project. We are building Rail Cars (Trains) for Perth. It’s new and exciting – a whole new industry for me with new things to learn.
I didn’t do much crafting over the holidays – so this challenge was one of my first cards for 2022. I used the “Nothings Better Than” stamp set to make these colourful Cocktails!
Make sure you click your way around to everyone on the hop, as there are lots of amazing creations and lots of different takes on our ‘Just Add Summer’ theme.
