Last night we stayed up late watching movies.
That's pretty unusual for us, but the neighborhood fireworks are a difficult lullaby and so after watching the old Hollywood Knights (Michelle Pfeiffer was a baby in that!) we watched Something Borrowed and it was sweet- a total chick flick but entertaining. I couldn't believe it was 2:30 when we finally went to sleep. We remembered to kiss each other a Happy New Year at about 1am.
I thought about the new year ahead as I drifted off to sleep and said a prayer for all good things to come.
Today was a beautiful day. The weather here is so perfect- warm, sunny, a good day for the beach. We talked about going, but decided after a late breakfast to just stay home and watch more movies. I worked on more paper dolls and played with the bunny. It was nice and low key- quiet- and restful.
This is Stu-he's an angora bunny my friend Lorene bought for me for Christmas and he is a constant source of amusement and affection as he hops around the house nibbling books and getting into mischief. He is about 11 weeks old now and will only get to be about 5-7 lbs. He eats a lot of timothy grass and if I could come up with a craft project involving rabbit poop I'd be a millionaire! He graciously gives us an above average daily amount- thank goodness there is no smell- it's just reconstituted grass! He goes in his litter box and is really very sweet.
I'm using some old pictures- I hope you don't mind. I just wanted to blog today, start a new year right. I'm also killing time until Hell on Wheels is on. It's a western on AMC, set back in the railroad building days and I must confess it has grown on me to the point that I have missed it not being on over the holidays. You know I love the wild west and love clothes from that era. I do have a rather bohemian poor gypsy magnolia pearl style and am going to dig out my linens and crochet laces to transform into clothes that reflect that.
I hope this year I can make some bloomers, pinafores, and felted dolls and get really good at binding books. I am cleaning out drawers, cupboards and closets to purge all the stuff I have saved in the hopes that "one day I would make something from it". If I haven't by now, then chances are I won't! I have high hopes of doing some indie craft shows this year and so I am aiming to come up with a product line and a website. Go big or go home, right? I am always dreaming of new things to make and there is never an empty day when I am not doing something- and I really want to get back to blogging it here too.
I wish you all a wonderful new year full of inspiration and JOY, as well as happiness and prosperity.
