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!

It’s officially Winter in Australia

So what does winter look like for us?  Well here on the Sunshine Coast it really is shorts and tshirts and maybe a jumper if there is a wind and pj’s at night.  Great weather for eating and scrapbooking I’m thinking.

Sunshine Coast

We have had such a busy few weeks.  Our eldest son marched out from the army, this is after an intense 80 days where there drilled to the max.

It was so wonderful to hear him say that it was his proudest moment.  Oh the feelings and emotions one wanted to capture as he marched by.  I would have cried more expect I was filming and taking photos at the same time.

When I first got in Creative Memories it was the days where digital was an unknown word and taking a photo to capture the memory was of high importance for me.

I still believe in capturing the memory and of course it is still important but back then I couldn’t wait until you picked your photos up and felt the need to scrapbook them immediately.

Today I’ll be honest it is harder to get to the store to print them off because I’ve already seen the image, shared it already on Facebook and Instagram and so the urgency to scrapbooking the image is not quite the same.

Doesn’t mean  I don’t enjoy but it is a different era.  Just reflecting I guess, anyway here is a photo of our son, such a proud moment.
