Happy New Year!

So 2013 is finally here.  Wish I could say we rung it in with a bang, but truth be told we were all fast asleep by midnight at our house.  We had some good food and a few cocktails with family, but we were all zonked by 10.  So I tucked the girls in and told them I would see them next year.

A new year for me means that I'm looking for my next creative outlet to try.  Usually by New Years Eve I've figured out what I'm going to tackle in the upcoming year, but this year I'm having a hard time deciding.  I may try knitting or crocheting again, or I may tackle sewing.  Or I may  just try a variance on scrapbooking - something like mixed media. 

I decided to give myself a couple of weeks to think about it...can someone please ask me at the end of January what I'm trying so I don't forget to decide?? LOL

As for resolutions, I don't really make them anymore.  I did read on a blog recently that an alternative is picking a word to live by this year.  I think I really like this idea, but I have to seriously consider what that word would be.  I could try "patience" but I have a feeling that I would fail at that one - and who likes to set themselves up to fail??  I'm considering "content" - it would be nice to strive to really feel contentment on a daily basis.  I usually get so caught up in all the things I have to do that I forget to sit back and enjoy what I have.  I'm going to mull it over, but its a strong contender.

Wishing everyone a happy, productive 2013.  I hope whatever you strive for you can tick off as "done" by this time next year!
