Just Do It.

my new year's resolution - this new year's eve 2008? to "do" it.

we all see it done, we all copy from something else (looks like nike might have enjoyed this 1982 Clairol campaign a lot...), we all say, "I could do that", but we don't.

So this year, 2008, I'm going to do it. I'm going to make a change and do something - something I've always wanted to do and can do.

here's to a year filled with hope and lots of to do-s (the good ones.)

idea time.


i'm home for christmas this year and i'm obsessing over doing something with my hands. i want to create some jewelry, make a card, design something new, develop the idea/the name of my store i will have one day....

recently, my husband is trying to guide me to really take my crafting to the next level and get my jewelry line back on track, back in stores, back in working mode. i've been sooooo busy with life that my real life has been put to the backside. i want to create again. i need to. i wonder what i'll make next.

Here's to "first-s"

The first snowflakes fell today here in Seattle. I'm sitting in front of my computer, drinking tea, in one of this season's big puffy sleeve sweater smiling to myself. It's the first day of December and we have snow!

I also truly enjoy the fact that this is our first day to open our Advent calendar- Day "1". We have the one from Starbucks this year - which is a cool, affordable, and reusable one - now that is a first.
