If I haven't told you yet, Happy New Year!!
I came across an idea I loved this week - at A Commonplace Life. Rather than focus on resolutions and what didn't happen during the last year, look at what you've accomplished.
I started a weblog.
Made a few new good friends.
Found my path.
Found a job that makes me happy.
Baked 200 cupcakes for my sister's wedding and managed to keep from crying myself into a joyful mess on the day! (Trust me, that was difficult. When I have a feeling like happiness that becomes too large for little me to contain, it starts leaking out my face....)
Started an Etsy shop.
Learned how to make lasagna from scratch.
Gathered the courage to enter a poetry contest.
It was a trying year in many ways but that is now the past. I'll try to learn from my history and then put it behind me. And keep the memories of the good things beside me as I venture into the new year. And it is so very full of promise!!
The first post of this year - the last projects of last year....
The pillows I felted for Mum for Christmas. The designs are my own adaptation of one in this book, Felt Forward.
The dresser runner is finally quilted as well. I solved my existential question and my metaphorical one shortly after. Life's like that.
And no, you can not see what's in the mirror behind me. Like I said, it colours the view but it really isn't all that important. :-)
