Happy Happy New Year everyone! Wow! My first post in the new decade! 2010 has been off to a cozy start for me so far. I've been spending time snuggling with Ben and Magic and have been spending time in my studio too, working on....Valentine's Day goodies!! It's already right around the corner and I swear to decorate for it this year! It's one of my New Year's resolutions....along with getting more organized with my time and my stuff. Organizing was my resolution last year too...and I accomplished it. I am now much better organized than I was in 2008, but it can get better still!
Anyway, my cold is gone and lots of pink and red and white people have been popping up in my studio. I'm so happy to be working in this cheery color palette. And I think these characters are happy about it too!
I went around my studio the other day gathering the appropriate colors and hearts and flowers and ribbons and trim to accessorize with. Looking at the little collection together made me smile.
Vintage glass picks, cupcake toppers, little metal hearts (thanks Mimi for these!), velvet flowers, feathers (some from my own birds!) and more. Pompom trim, sequins, ruffles and vintage seam binding. I love it all!
Many of these cuties will be going to stores locally and around the country, but I also plan to list some pieces on Etsy soon. Stay tuned!!
Oh yes! And I found the Martha Stewart clip that had eluded me. Luckily they didn't show my tree falling down!
In more general blog news...for some reason blogger stopped sending me an email every time a comment was made. I didn't think anyone made a comment on my last mega post until I looked at the post itself today, but I was wrong! Thank you so much for all your sweet words! It really melted my heart as it always does. I always want to respond to your comments, but for some reason your email addresses rarely show up, so I can't just hit 'reply' when they arrive in my inbox. :( Another New Year's resolution...figure out why and fix it if I can! :)
Also, I just added a 'follow' do-hicky the side bar on my blog (thank you sMacthoughts for the suggestion!). If you wish, please feel free to follow my blog if you're not already. I love seeing you all and exploring your blogs if you have them!
Thank you again for all of your sweet words and encouragement. It makes me want to create more and share more with you all! :) Happy New Year!
