{ Happy New Year and a Sneak peek ! }

Happy 2009! I am excited and looking forward to the new year, but I was a little sad, too. 2008 was a good year for me, and I was sad to see it go. Now that Christmas is over, I have been working with bright, happy colors that I love. This first peek is for Embellish-Online. The gallery reveal in on January 5 and the theme is New Beginnings! The second card is for CupCards {to go}. This kit goes live on January 5. Check out the blog for more photos.Look what I found at Target!!!! Shelly posted a photo on her blog of these adorable plates. When I went to check it out they were just starting to put the Christmas stuff away and haven't even started unpacking the new stuff. I went this Monday, to a different store and they had everything. I am in love with these colors and the little owls. The cup is my favorite. There is a little owl sitting on the handle. Here is my little owl that I made. There is a pattern in Sew Simple magazine that I picked up. I added a string to mine and I am using it as an ornament on my tree. The one in a magazine is made out of fleece and is much bigger. I want to make more, but the hardest part is cutting all the little pieces. Sewing was easy, even the blanket stitch...I was able to find video instructions on how to do it since this was my first time. I really like owls. What do you think? I was able to purchase the kit for Project 365 this morning. I can't wait to see it and get started. I am still trying to decide how to share my photos on my blog. I don't know if I can post daily photos, but maybe I can set up a gallery and post my photos there. I started a blog roll on the sidebar for everyone that is doing the project. Let me know if you would like to be added to the list. That is it for the first day of the year. I spent some time changing my blog, I hope you like the new look. Have a great night.

  7. Darling owl stuff! My dad grew up in a 2-horse town called Red Owl, so I already had this thing for owls! I should do more now that they are hot!

    Love your new blog header...

    I am still thinking about how to post my Project 365 pages. I might post each week's page, or I like your idea of putting them in an online photo album. I may have to create a new blog for just that. Not sure yet, but I'm anxious to hear others ideas!
