"I fell asleep beneath a tree
and dreamt I met eternity
She asked my if I felt it right
that minutes flew like drops of light
That time remained a thing unseen
and she a fairy-tale queen."
The year is almost up and I have been looking back at all of the things I have done, loved, created, discovered, and experienced in the past twelve months. In february I picked up a point and shoot digital camera and started taking pictures of things in my house. Not long after this I began a blog - with no experience or idea of where it would lead except that I was bursting to create something pretty and maybe to have a place of my own where I could display the things that I loved (including my artwork which I had never before showcased). In May I bought a DSLR because it had only taken a few hours playing with my sister's little point and shoot to discover that I LOVED photography! I am amazed that from these little choices this blog has evolved and the support and friendship I have received from so many people has been an overwhelming source of inspiration and encouragement. Sometimes you just need someone else to say that what you do is lovely. It makes all the difference. Thankyou for the time you spent reading my sometimes clumsy words and browsing through my pictures - I have loved sharing them with you and I am SO excited to see what the New Year brings because I expect it will be even more exciting than the last. My etsy store is twinkling on the horizon and I am brimming with new ideas thanks to the incredible bloggers and creative women out there whose talent inspires me. Thankyou again! I have had a wonderful time looking through all of this year's photos and drawings and I have created a few collages to help you remember. Here is a little look at Jennelise Rose 2011...
