"It’s just simple. You just take something, and then you do something to it. Then you do something else to it. And then something else. And then something else. Keep this up and pretty soon you’ve got something."
Hi, old friends. I gotta say that it felt a little strange to go three whole days without a blog or social media post, but boy did I need the break. The twenty four day series was a test of creative endurance that fell smack dab in the busiest time of year! I am so glad that I went for it without even considering what it would entail. Here's to occasionally leaping before you look.
The past two days have been pretty unplugged. We have kept it super simple; lots of quality time with the girls, reading, weaving on the new little loom, a little Netflix, and I can't forget the sweet, sweet (constant) sound of H singing and strumming on her new ukelele (she would want you to know that it's lavender and there is a wooden dolphin on it). Did I mention Ri's birthday is on the 30th? Yeah, she was born the day before NYE. So somehow over the past three years her birthday party has evolved into a two-day sleepover party that also encompasses New Year's Eve... and there are blanket forts and/or tents involved. It is pretty epic.
So my plan this week is to share a couple of New Year's Eve-ish projects and a couple of party craft projects that I think you will enjoy. The first is this mixed media project that lends itself so beautifully to the celebration of the new year but it can be done at any time of year.
