Finally, my New Year's Resolution.....2014

It isn't really a New Year's resolution more like a promise to myself to start and continue (it's always the continuing that lets me down) promoting my on-line hobby.  I enjoy the process of creating and crafting things, re-purposing, altering one item into another.  As always, what to do with the end product? After all you can only use so many twine flowers, strawberry tea cosies, paper boxes etc., etc.  Well, sell them. When I stop enjoying making a particular item I stop and move onto the next. 

I also spend a lot of my time in second hand stores, thrift/op shops and garage sales.  I enjoy the "find", and sometimes I find a place for things in the home (meaning I just can't get rid of them) but mainly I just enjoy them for awhile and again, sell them.  Lately, though, things have just been accumulating and it is now the moment to find new homes for a lot of this excess, no not clutter, but beautiful things.

So this year I am determined, motivated and definitely bursting at the seams with "stuff" to give it a really good go and clear out a lot of these things to make room for the new. For as long as I enjoy myself I am going to spend my time indulging in my hobby.

  2. Dear Chris, thank you so very much for your very kind words. I have become distracted from my blog for awhile now, but your words have encouraged me to pay it more attention. I do enjoy it.
