The Expectation of Christmas Future {A Counterfeit Christmas Carol}

My last task for our 'Counterfeit Christmas Carol' is to share a little about my creative wishes for the next twelve months. Well, 2016 has been a little bit of a whirlwind. I've been busier than ever at work; commuting; looking for a new home; and steadily building business in my little etsy store, Obstinate Pursuit

Unfortunately, it looks as though 2017 could be even more hectic. I'll be moving home (but the conveyancing is taking so long that it might be 2018 before I'm actually in the new house) and, hopefully, we'll be selling two houses! And, of course, there's still work. *sigh* Wouldn't it be amazing if we were all able to stay at home and create all day, without worrying about how to pay for all of our supplies? 

So Much To Do!

It's tempting to 'simplify' by reducing the time I spend on scrapbooking and beading, but I know that it's when we're most busy that we need time to ourselves. 

Week In The Life 2015

So, I'm keeping my scrapbooking wishes for 2017 fairly simple and am hoping that, in twelve month's time ...
  • I will have started and finished my Week In The Life albums from 2015 and 2016. (Is hoping that I'll have completed 2017 as well a little too much to hope for?)
  • I will have completed twelve months of working with my One Little Word.
  • I will have made three mini-albums 'Portsmouth', 'Summer' and 'London' from photographs that I haven't even had printed (all of which are from 2015 and 2016.) 
  • And, of course, that I will be looking back at a full year of counterfeiting with the amazing Master Forgers!
I think that's more than enough to start with, right? Please let me know if you have any of your own scrapbooking/creative wishes for 2017. I'd love to know!
