Merry Christmas and Welcome 2016

mitchell family christmas 2015 Well that year flew bye so quickly. We started out as a family of 5 living and working together and throughout the year each child left and it was just Brian and I. So happy to get together for Christmas even if it was for only two days.

Sam joined the army in April 2015 that was a proud moment for all of us. Polly decided she wanted to try flatting and moved out in June 2015 and continues to manager Hungry Jacks. Our youngest was concreting and still at home but after we got an offer to manage a caravan park, he moved to Moree with his Uncle to work down there.

I certainly didn’t get to scrapbook much or exercise much or achieve some of the goals I set but I have been true to myself and not given up my faith.kingfisher

The caravan park turned out not to be what it should have been and after 5 months of 7 days a week we left.  I got a job straightway working on Fraser Island and Brian is resting up.  View is the jetty on the Island.

 

So now we are already in 2016.  I have chosen to leave behind some of 2015 which hasn’t been serving me like sugar,  now that is a challenge.  I’m about to go on a 10 day detox with this PRODUCT if you would like to join with me sign up and let me know so we can encourage each other.

I will get back to scrapbooking, now that we have moved to a house where I can get my gear out.  So I am with two different companies, both allow you to join yourself for a fee and just purchase what you want when you want.  Click on the name and it will take to you the site Our Memories For Life (this is under a sister company called Youngevity which Rhonda Anderson is with after the old Creative Memories Closed).

Creative Memories is back again and you can join this HERE and order your fav products again, no min orders for either of these.  It just $59 to join in Australia and $49 US.

What are your dreams for this year.  I still believe we need to have a vision in order to get anywhere even if we don’t know all the little details.  I wish you every success in everything you put your hand to. xxx Julia

 

Cheers to the outgoing year, 2015:
May the good times live on in our memories,
and may we learn lessons from the troubling times
that will make us stronger and better than ever.

 

Cheers to 2016:
For each and every one of you,
may it be filled with significant steps
toward the fulfillment of your fondest wishes.
May it bring you more joy and success
And less grief and regret.

 

Cheers to your dreams…
May you never stop believing in them
And taking the actions that will make them a reality. 
In this coming new year, let us focus on our goals
and work diligently toward them,
and yet let’s all try to go with the flow a little more
and stress a little less.

 

And most important, cheers to all of you.
Appreciate yourselves and each other in the New Year
as Marcia and I appreciate all of you now.

Let’s focus on each other’s good points
and choose to overlook minor annoyances. 
Let us encourage more and criticize less,
Give more and need less.
And whenever we can, let us create harmony, 
peace and mutual happiness in 2016.

 

Let us start fresh, right now,
to make this the very best year ever.
Welcome to 2016: Enjoy the journey!

Our Memories For Life New Pocket Punches

OMFL-Pocket-Punches Pocket Punches from Our Memories for Life.  These are great and come in five designs.  For easy storage they lock and fold.  The punched piece is about  1 1/2″ to 2″ wide. You Can purchase through www.join-julia.com

The slider is on the end of the punch. Slide it to the left and it unlocks so you can punch with it. When done, close the punch and slide it to the right to lock. The punch’s design allows them to stack on each other for easy storage. The punches are Wild Flower, Tags You’re It, Snowflake Kiss, The Real Seal, and Monarch Butterfly.

Now to the real fun – a project using three of the punches as well as two border design cartridges.

This card was designed by Pam Winn for the Our Memories for Life make and take at the Fall 2015 Summit Memory Keeping Event. She used the Butterfly Lace cartridge (that comes with the Border Maker System) for the front edge. She created the green strip with the Pinking cartridge and threaded it with the cardstock piece she trimmed from the front of the card. She then created the flower by layering cardstock punched with The Real Seal and Wild Flower punches. To create the center of the flower, she adhered pieces punched from the Butterfly Lace border. Finally, she punched cardstock from two colors using the Tags You’re It punch and wrote the sentiment. Isn’t this a fun card! And so easy to recreate.
