No resolutions this year but there are some goals-
Goals – not necessarily all this year!
1…… Finish at least a couple of UFO’s
2……Take a Learn to Draw Class
3……Get all my TAST stitches done
4……Let go of the fear and let the creative side take over
and some Bad Habits that need to be broken-
There is one bad habit I have conquered last year. Since I was a small girl I have always chewed my fingernails. I know, yuk, yuk yuk! Gross! As a child I was very shy and very self conscious about my very thick glasses. Of course it didn’t help that I was teased mercilessly by the other kids at school. This made me very nervy and I just chewed and chewed. Fifty odd (very odd) years later on our Western trip last year, I found that my fingernails grew because I wasn’t chewing!! You are always dirty when you’re camping out in the bush, so even I couldn’t bring myself to chew. So….. haven’t chewed since. HURRAY!
1……Stop starting new projects before finishing old
2……Stop hoarding and buying art stuff that goes into the cupboard to just dream about
3……Stop getting on this bloody computer so often and make some limits.
Well, there you have it, I have exposed publicly.
My friend, Marleen, gave me this journal for Christmas. Inside it has a type of recycled paper and some of the pages in the back are graph paper. This should be really handy for doing some designing. I love it!
So, I am designating this book to creative ideas. Thank you, Marleen.
One of my loopy sister in laws (sorry Cath, but you know you are : -)) has a beautiful Australian chocolate mist cat called Levi. In amongst all her old clothing was this very 80’s, very ugly denim skirt. I suggested we cut it up and make a little snuggle rug for Levi. Something he can scratch the billyo out of if he likes! It is backed with the black velvety ‘stuff’ you see here in the windows of the front. Cathy loved it hope Levi does too!
Here is Cathy aboard her partner’s boat back in November. Love ya Cath!
A really random photo, but this is the plum pudding I made for Christmas and it was my best ever!!
Forgot to take an after cooking photo but it was quite spectacular!
Also made a new dessert which everyone agrees will become a family tradition.
It is from the pre Christmas edition of “Delicious” magazine. Cold Rice Pudding with Hot Cherry Sauce. Out of this wooooorld.
HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!!!!
