Welcome to this month’s wrap up!

Here’s everything I’ve managed to achieve this month all in one place . . .

So that was December . . .

So that was December and it was a busy month off the blog for all the usual festive-related reasons – why is it that this time of year just goes so fast!  It seems like no time since we were doing Halloween crafts and yet at the same time it seems like ages ago lol.  November was a blur and it always seems like there is enough time to do everything needed for Xmas but of course that’s never true.  The good news is that all the important things were done in plenty of time.  After having three months of creating and posting every day it was quite a shock to suddenly not be able to continue that exercise, but there just didn’t seem to be enough time to do any of those fun things. On top of that, the heating broke down again and so we are spending the winter with no heating and no hot water – again!   That might be tough and it may be cold, but at least we are all well and doing OK, so we can endure a little cold for now.  Sending you all Warm Winter Wishes and a Happy New Year when it comes!

I was looking through some notes that I keep and I have achieved a few things this year, even if they are very minor things.  There are more things that I did not complete like all four year-long classes I started, the Gratitude class in November, the Care December, Art Journal Advent and the Carve December challenge, but here are some things I did manage to complete:

Number of books read this year:  52
Number of blog posts written: 292
Number of art journal pages created: 161
Challenges completed:
100 Day Project
ICAD (Index Card A Day)
Blog Along Wth Effy both April & September
AEDM (Art Every Day Month)
Number of months without caffeine or any type of coffee: 8
Another year alcohol free
Another year of vegan/vegetarianism

If I think of anything else noteworthy, I will add it later, meanwhile here’s the wrap up!

My AECP Journey:

Oops, no classes completed this month

I still remain in Level 3 after passing Level 2. Level 3 is the final level, there are classes I need to do and then an “exam”. I want to get back to this but 2020 changed a lot of things for a lot of people, including me.

Thanks! Your comment and visit are greatly appreciated. Come back often or if people are still doing that, follow me on Follow
