first in 2010 & New roads

 Happy New Year to everyone. I wish you love and happiness, peace and prosperity in 2010. Its a new start and hopefully for many, a much nicer and brighter year.
Below are some new makes from me but before then i wanted to share a poem which i think is apt for this time of year. I wrote it a few years ago and hope you will enjoy it


New Roads (c) j.macfarlane


The road of life is tread blindly in youth;

each step taken fearlessly and in haste.

Decisions seemingly disposable at the time

setting concrete footprints in the past.


For some the footprints gleam like gold;

a trail so sure of luck and of love.

For others there are deep tear-filled tracks,

along a road they should never have tred.


With age we learn that regret is useless;

in hindsight we see clearly the golden way.

but it is only a one way path we travel

and no going back will bring us peace.


Pause in the road, look carefully and long.

then remember you have a choice to make,

to dwell on the footprints you already made

or to change at the crossroads ahead



Here are some items I made these last few days
