December 17, 2012


I've been working really hard to be able to share my Vision Card Workshop with people for the holiday season. I love this practice and do it every year and was so excited to put together this class so that everyone could join in. I can't wait to make my Vision Cards this year.


I feel like I should have posted this one yesterday because it's totally nostalgic for me. Anyhow, how funny is it that during a big clean up this weekend I ran across the book "The Big Tidy-Up". I LOVE this book! I don't even remember reading the story, but just looking at all the pictures (I guess I didn't get 'the message' on tidying up, if there is one). In particular I used to look for the lollipops on the pages, even if there was only 2 I was convinced there was more and it was a game to find them!


I did go out with some friends on the weekend and we ended up going for coffee and dessert in a lovely area called The Hydrostone. We shared this piece of "opera cake". It is getting colder though and getting out is getting harder. Still, it was nice to have a festive day out with friends.

Jamie, your cards are gorgeous!!! I am sure people are going to go crazy for your course, beautiful and the perfect way to start the new year.

Shannon, OMG, I remember that book so well! I am so happy you still have it. I remember looking at all the details too, especially the lollipops. What a treat! Thank you for that.

Sorry I am a bit late. All I do is sleep lately which I guess is good. Doesn't make me very productive though.

I'm so exciting to hear your progress on the Vision Card workshop Jamie! I actually can't remember if I made vision cards last year. I hope I make some this year!

What an awesome piece of cake there Suzie! I am surprized that was a shareable piece, I'd easily be able to take care of it myself! hahahah

I'm so glad you enjoyed the flashback of the pic of The Big Tidy-Up! I don't have many books from my childhood, but this along with a large Winnie the Pooh book and 101 Dalmations are some of the ones I really treasure.

Wow, I love The Big Tidy Up! Did you know that we had that when I was a kid? I remember all the pictures too. Shannon, I love that you turned it into a game!

Wow, that cake looks delicious! There's nothing like sharing sweets :) I'm glad you got out and had a nice time, Suzie.

And thanks for the encouragement about the Vision Cards. It's been wonderful to share the process with people. I hope it sparks some amazing magic in 2013!

It was a lovely dessert Shannon and it was almost closing time so we just chomped it down, LOL.

I remember that book when I was a kit too so I am not surprised it was Jamie's!

People are going to love making vision cards Jamie, I just know it.

I had a feeling that The Big Tidy-Up made it through all of our hands and hearts! I love that we have shared memories of it :)

And here's for new memories to be made with 2013 vision cards!
