We will open the book. It's pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and it's first chapter is New Year's Day.

I started this post four days ago. It's a scary start to the new year, I know-- so much so that I almost don't want to talk about it in fear of implanting some sort of stoic negativity into the threads of 2010. So, I have decided to ignore the fact that there have been numerous obstacles to the start of my new year, and am now just pretending that it is January 3rd-- so please do the same and read on...
Happy New year to all of you!! I am fresh off of the most spectacular holiday season I have had in years (minus one epic meltdown) and I am so excited about the opportunities this year holds. I think New Years Day might actually be my favorite holiday. I feel so re-energized every January first that it is hard not to love it. I've been working on many new things in the studio-- I've been manic in there I tell you...like some sort of a mad scientist, I feel like all those ideas I didn't get to last year need to be put into fabric NOW! I'll share photos with you when I get my computer back up and running-- It seems my back light has decided to stop working eight short weeks out of warranty- go figure! Probably something to do with the pineapple juice that was spilled on it by some cute, sticky, unnamed little girl. Some things you just have to give in to-- this is one of them. I'm not going to let it ruin my New Year! A new monitor is on it's way (has actually now arrived and is sitting on the table waiting to be opened- too busy in the studio to get to it today...oh how I love my new little project :) ) and I'll be back in business in no time. I can't wait to show you all what I've been working on. Some fun new things for 2010. Coming soon.... (as long as it doesn't take me 4 days to get my next post up and running)
Cheers....to a postive, creative and happy 2010
