Stop and Take Time

Today is 01-01-11! How cool is that? Not as cool as 11-11-11 (which will happen later this year), but cool none-the-less. In honor of this cool day, I wish you  HAPPY NEW YEAR!

They say an optimist wants to see the New Year in. A pessimist wants the old year to leave. Which are you? Or are you a little of both?

This year, I think I’m more of a pessimist. Although last year wasn’t horrible, I did have enough things happen to me for which I’m grateful are over. This new year holds promise of some great opportunities for me. I’m scared and excited in the same breath. Each day we wake with a new clean slate, but its the start of a new year that seems to hold such great promise in life.

This past year, I’ve realized how important my creative life is to me. The last few weeks, I have been very busy making things. It gives me such comfort and pride. Often it amazes me with a little bit of thread, I can make things, like the sock rabbit pictured here. Since I got my copy of Socks Appeal by Brenna Maloney, I have wanted to create a sock critter. Today, I took the time to make this cutie. Such a simple and fun design. I love just looking at the pictures in this book. Brenna has made some adorably cute critters.

This year, I will use this rabbit as a reminder to stop and take time for the things I love. I hope you do the same.
