December - photo summary and last day of 2012!

Last day of December, last day of 2012!
Great moment for the last picture summary in this year, right?
Last year was very important to me - I've made the hardest possible decision to quit my regular job and start to be a full-time teacher and designer. I started travelling a lot and had to learn how to menage my time in a totally different way. I can't say I succeed, but I hope I get better and better in that :) I try to think in a positive way, you know!  This year was the year of expansion, new contacts, new friends and on the other hand - loosing touch with the "roots"- friends and family I have here in Poland. Balancing that isn't easy :(
What is going to happen now? I hope to create a lot, I will travel even more and try to focus on the things that make me happy - designing, collage, painting, journaling... I really wish for a BIG change this year, so please keep your fingers crossed for that, as I do! I promise - I will dream and do all things possible to make the dreams come true! For me - and for you too :)
And I want you to know how much I appreciate your support, interest, all the love I get through this blog, email and any social media. It gives me the power to go on, to believe things I do are important and worth of trying, even if the day is bad and tea is not enough ;). Thank you so much for being with me! 

So, how was December?

I think that the decision to leave your work is difficult, but which happiness for your pupils! You gave to us of the dream and some creativity.
Rome was for me, a fabulous moment, to redo. I wish one happy New Year to you on 2013 and to all your family.

Oh wow - living the dream!
And best wishes to Zuza - what a cutie.

Well I squealed out loud when I realised you are coming to AUSTRALIA to TEACH!! Yes, I am THAT excited and so my friend and I have just booked into Sleepy Hollow for some clasees (would love to do them all, but we have gone with two for now). I adore your mixed media journals so am thrilled to be able to learn some techniques and get that incredibly awesome baroque and grungy style happening.

Happy 2013!
