Happy New Year! Thank you all for a wonderful 2011, it was beyond my expectations!
We cautiously rung in the new year with my husband’s family who were passing around the gift of the stomach flu – yik. Grateful for a safe seven hour trip home to Michigan, we left in a hurry to beat our first winter storm home. It started snowing as we drove into town – AMAZING! Also grateful that nobody else fell victim to this volatile virus in the car.
We did manage to celebrate with one bottle of champagne between the healthy, I was more interested in claiming the cage. I have wanted to make one of these cute miniature parlor chairs since I first laid eyes on them here (photo above). This is what I learned – I am not so great with wire (photo below)!
Did you make a resolution for the new year? I am generally a goal orientated person, I make lists constantly mostly so I can cross things off… I may not be keen at picking one new years resolution but these flowed readily into a “want” list for 2012:
I want to sketch and draw more.
I want to actually do my hair more and wear a pony tail less.
I want more 3000 yard mornings in the pool each week.
I want more dates with my husband.
I need more quiet times in the word.
I want to paint my nails with my daughters more.
I want to entertain more in my home.
I want to explore surface design on the clay and expand my artistic style.
I want to make more homemade bread.
I want to eat less dessert and more vegetables.
I want to capture more memories.
I want to be a great friend.
I want to take more family vacations.
I want to purge my basement.
I want to ski downhill lots.
I want to get back into writing snail mail.
I want to give generously.
