A New Year Already!!

New year's rockin' eve! crop

Another amazing year has come and gone, and like many others I am reflecting on what has been and looking forward to what will be.  First I want to thank my wonderful and creative friends for encouraging me to expand my horizons, try new things and believe in myself.  Thanks also to my wonderful and supportive family who don’t always understand me but are willing to go with the flow and even find ways for me to explore my creative soul.  I am happy that I have rediscovered my love of vintage fashions this past year, as well as my love of sewing, and am looking forward to combining the two in creating an interesting wardrobe for myself.  I have enjoyed being able to travel with my family, discovering new wonders and renewing acquaintances with old favorites.

And so, for this coming year – here are some things I would like to do….

Garden more

Complain less

Make a crown

Finish typing my father’s memoirs of growing up in the depression

Sew for me using some of my vintage pattern collection

Cook more for my family

Ride my pink bike to the store whenever possible

Use some of my vintage fabric stash to make some wonderful and interesting things!

Practice soldering

Avoid emotional vampires (they just suck the happiness and positive energy right out of you)

Stay in touch with the many amazing friends I have made through my blog and Silver Bella – you gals sustain me!!

Count my blessings each and every day

Not an earth-shattering list, I know.  But I think it’s a step in the right direction towards a most excellent year.

Happy New Year, everyone!

Just added one more goal – Organizing my studio!  Check out the tab at the top of the page to follow along with my progress.

  • An impressive summing up, and a new year’s list to make you happy! Wishing you a wonderful New Year filled with many more magical moments! And, uh, I’ll be in touch as soon as I extricate myself from all the family doings that remain on this year’s list, including a move to the Caribbean tomorrow and one more birthday. 🙂 Hugs, Pam

  • Hi Sue~

  • Hi, Sue: You are brave to put it out there! I have a fear of accountability 🙂 Happy 2011 to you and your’s.
