Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays

Oh look at me I'm sticking to my new years resolution & joined in another challenge!!
This one is over at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays. Their challenge is to use a photo.

It is Hubby's birthday today & today we are starting a healthy diet together.
We have also decided that 2010 is going to be Our Year. We've had a rough few years. I was diagnosed with ME, then we were told we can not conceive naturally & we need ICSI (expensive IVF!) then we had to sell our house after I could no longer work.
Its been crap but we have stayed strong & this year we have decided it is all going to change.

SO.......I have done a 12x12 page (which I am going to stick on the notice board) with all the major things we have decided on for this year.
I looked up & printed the pictures from google as inspiration & motivation.

  • First we have January - starting our healthey Diet.
  • Then we plan on saving a bit of money to have Hubby's belated birthday & Valentines in April - Stay in a log cabin for 4 nights.
  • After that it will be sort the finances out & save some more
  • we would also like to go on our very belated (4 years this year) fancy honeymoon.
  • Whilst doing all this I hope to maybe get pregnant naturally (preferably before my 30th birthday!!) also we can be put on the IVF list from 1st April.
  • Lastly by December - we want to be out of the caravan. We have decided maybe a bungalow as the lack of stairs is bette for me & the dog!!!

I suffer with CFS/ME, Fybromyalgia, anxiety and depression. They take up a large amount of my energy and time along with my family so I need an out, something for me and that is Ellephantastic. It's my creative life. Being creative, being inspired by other peoples creativity and inspiring others with my creativity are what keep me going. As well as the love I have for my family, but that goes without saying because who couldn't love this dude?

I love all kinds of crafting and creativity, knitting, art, baking, photography, paper crafting....anything really!
I have spent a lot of time the past 2 to 3 years working on myself and trying different avenues. E.g businesses, counselling, medication, diet.....all sorts! Every time though I have end…
