Happy New Year...2010

for starters...
I am not a big resolutions person, but I always have dreams and goals. Things I want to do...to achieve. This year is no exception. One of the biggest thing for me this year is to make better use of my time on the computer. Better blogging, keeping in touch, maintaining friendships, making new friends. Spending more time with my Babycakes...more quality time. Start using coupons...seriously getting organized. (there will be more on this at another time.) Eating out less, not buying sodas at work but taking my own from home. Basically trying to stick to a budget. Cooking a real dinner...sitting down at the table to eat instead of in front of the TV. Continuing to read books. I seriously fell in love with this in 2009. I want to continue to feel free in my creating...creating what is in my heart and what makes me happy. I want to get published more. OK...so there they are! Now I just need to do a LO! LOL!!! Oh and last but not least...start sewing more. See...I got a new sewing machine for Christmas so I will hopefully very soon be adding this to some of my projects! Not the prettiest pic of me, so just focus on the machine! It does like 50 different kinds of stitches! Yippee! All kinds of fun is going to come from this!!!

next....
I have really enjoyed seeing some of my friends share their top 10 favorites from this past year.
So here is my take on this...
OK?! So it is more than 10, but I could probably add more! I will admit that I have really enjoyed creating this past year. Finally feeling like I have found who I am when I create. I really struggled with that prior to this past year. I hope I am able to continue this in my creative process and maybe even expand myself a bit into the world of fabric and sewing!

and finally...
Happy New Year to all of you and thank you so much for all your comments, your support and for just stopping by to check out my latest post! I hope to hear from more of you in the coming year!!!

  2. I can see why you picked these projects. Loved all of them.
    Hope you enjoy the new machine. I too sew on occasion - I have several unfinished quilting projects! I love all the great graphic prints out there lately and would like to make a great bag or apron to feature some of them. Look forward to seeing some of your sewing projects.

  14. Happy New Year Juliana! Your top-10 are perfect pics. I especially like your quote, "I fianlly feel like who I am when I create..." I agree that that truly shows in your work. I have always been a fan, but you've really found something in you and I can see it. Wonderful goals this year. I wish you the best!
