I spent most of the day, not being very festive, sorry to say. I guess I won't ever be one of those huge New Years Revelers. Not one of those people who goes out to downtown Burlington to celebrate First Night (and freeze.) There are probably a gazillion reasons why I don't get all hyped up and I could starting naming them, if I stopped to analyze the thing, but I won't.
I have started to right down my HAIRY AUDACIOUS GOALS. More about that when I get them all worked out. These are my personal and professional goals. Ones that push the limit. Have you ever set a H.A.G for yourself and it actually come to fruition? If so, that's fantastic! If not, don't stop trying to get there. Anything is possible. You just have to imagine it. There's the Vermont Coaching Center showing it's brainwashing techniques on me again....
Ok- so it may not have been a festive day- but it was a productive one.
1-I did a little damage at the Christmas Tree Shoppe. I don't shop there often, but some things they sell are super cheap! I picked up a lamp shade for $2! That's a bargain.
2-Did the food shopping, New Year's Days is our traditional Mexican feast. I'm making flan! YUM!
3-Got Henry his season pass for Bolton Mountain. ( we love Bolton! )
4-Took care of some other mundane paperwork
5-Cleaned the kitchen
6- Unpacked more of the studio (it has been in boxes since we moved) I've created quite the purge pile- I will have to have a BIG destash sale on etsy! Maybe a few giveaways too.
7-Played ball with the dog
8-Read to my children
9-finished a bunch of ACEOs.... and here they are. They all have a little heart. Something I am trying to work into my life for 2009- Trying to open my heart a little more, let it grow wings and soar.
I also treated myself to a wonderful trade with a great Etsy artist friend Kim Geiser aka Persimmon Gal. She created this beautiful 10"x10"mixed media painting that I just fell in love with.
She traded me for the Gypsy Heart Shoe Assemblage. It's my latest piece of inspiration.
So I will leave you tonight with that:
Follow your heart, you'll love where it takes you!!!!
Happy New Year! May blessings be with you.
